is also currently running.TITLE: Annabeth Chase Hogwarts Teacher? PERPETRATOR: books4life247SUE-O-METER:
We have a thunderbolt icon done with little icons.SUMMARY:”Annabeth is sent on a quest to teach at Hogwarts as a favor. Chiron is friends with Dumbledore, who needs some help protecting the Chosen One. All she has to do is go to the magical school, teach a defense class, and watch out for Harry Potter. How hard could it be? Takes place in 5th year. (Don't like, don't read. No flames unless you have an idea for the story.)”FULL NAME:
demi-god, other canonHAIR:
n/aCONNECTION TO CANON:
She shows up, overhears a bit with Harry and his friends, then runs into Luna. Second chapter sees her amazed by the castle, and she overhears Harry’s comment regarding the carriages, but also runs into Percy randomly contacting her. Can I also say that it is rather annoying, when Annabeth is supposed to be a new teacher here, how she’s riding in with the students? Actually, it was rather annoying that she rode the train as well. Lupin had special circumstances, yet Annabeth should have already been there. Apparently, she’s not talked to the Headmaster yet either, which kind of grates on my nerves. Yes, another person brought her in, but there doesn’t seem to be much planning on the part of anyone. Nothing happens, and certain characters know things they shouldn’t, or there is no apparent reason they should know such things. Then, in chapter seven, the students are practicing knife throwing. Thalia is also there.ORIGIN:
We’ve got another writer who thinks tossing in a canon character or characters from another fandom to save the day is a good idea, when the canon characters of Harry Potter are quite capable of doing things on their own. Are all crossovers with Percy Jackson like this?SPECIAL ABILITIES:
Luna is also a demi-god. I’ve also got to agree with one of the reviewers who I quoted in the notes section. Making any of the canon characters in Harry Potter a demi-god when they are okay just the way they are honestly doesn’t sit right, particularly when we know who their parents are. Why not a character whose parents are unknown?NOTES:
Good grief. One of the things I noticed on the writer’s profile when I got the link for the entry was “The Gods Read The Lightning Thief.” Apparently the Suethor doesn’t know that’s against the rules on the pit. I’m also bothered by the fact the writer thinks it is okay to tell their readers they’re not allowed to tell them what they don’t like about the story, which is what I believe “no flames” really means. Whether it is critique, or simply opinion, it’s within the readers right to say something. For example, this quote from one of the readers for chapter one is fair game.
“i have to be honest, yes this is your story and you can do with it whatever you want, but i just always hated when someone made one of the wizards also be demigods, it always either luna, draco or neville and if they where half wizard half demigod that would make them even more powerful than dumbledore and Voldemort”
I also wasn’t surprised to see the writer copying chunks from the original series in their work as well, which is against the rules on the pit. Thankfully this seems to be just the first chapter, however, I found the story “dreadfully boring”, as nothing really happened. I also found this review left on chapter six. Both were left in July.
“Hi, at the beggining I was really intrigued by your story. The first chapters were great, a bit cliche, a few mistakes here and there but overall enjoyable. However, and I don't mean to critisize or hate, I am simply telling you my opinion. I feel as if in this last chapter, you completely strayed out of the path you were going along by giving in to the many cliches and overused plots of fanfiction. With the few mistakes, it made this chapter very lousy. I hope you go back to your original ideas, or develop these much more profoundly. Stay original!”
If it were another review that caused the backlash, one that as on the writer’s profile “cuss a me and tell me I should die”, then the writer likely deleted the anonymous review, which is a good thing.( No Annabeth, they do not need your help in their upcoming struggle.Collapse )
