I would like to discuss, for a few moments, things that drive me CRAZY in art or fanfiction.  Warning: I am opinionated, blunt, and slightly rude.  Read at your own risk.  Debates are allowed, but not nasty remarks.

People calling Hermione "Mione."  No one EVER called that in the books.  She wouldn't put up with it.  Whoever came up with nickname started a horrible fad.  I instantly stop reading ANYTHING that has this in it, no matter how good otherwise.

Artists who draw only in anime style.  Completely anatomically NOT EVEN CLOSE.  Personally, I don't enjoy anime shows, and I don't really care about fanart for them.  But when you start cluttering my Harry Potter and Disney Groups with your anime s**t, I get mad.  

OOC.  Out Of Character.  'Nuff said.

Not understanding how the society works.  Very close to OOC.  It's like OOC for the setting.  I saw a fanfic recently about Harry having a digital camera at Ron & Hermione's wedding.   It was true that Hermione's parent couldn't have moving pictures in their office, but Harry wouldn't have had a computer!  And, digital cameras weren't super common until the very early 2000s, and the Wizarding community is always quite a bit behind when it comes to things like that.  

The 99% of cosplay that completely sucks.  Now, my best friend loves anime, comiccons, and cosplaying.  Doesn't mean that I get any less annoyed when 22 of the 24 deviantwatch messages from one of my Harry Potter groups are THE SAME COSPLAYERS.  Post ONE DAMN picture, stop cluttering my messages!  Even if you're good cosplayers, I don't need to see 3323895 pictures of you.  No reason.  AND the art part of cosplay is the costume, so why you post pictures where the costume is impossible to see baffles me.  

Bad OCs.  I have a couple of my own OCs, I'm not going to lie.  But I can't STAND a bad OC.  Especially as a main character or in a relationship with a main character.  

Weird pairings.  Which are basically anything that Madam Rowling did not come up with.  Slash parings outside of Dumbledore and Grindewald, where did those COME from?!  What indication did Harry and Draco EVER give us that they were suppressed gays, madly lusting after one another?  And Hermione and Draco?  Really?  That just makes no sense.  There was NEVER anything remotely resembling attraction there.   And Remus and Sirius were BEST FRIENDS.  We can't even be best friends anymore without anyone thinking we're gay?  Grr, what IDIOTS came up with this crap?  One exception to this rule:  Rose & Scorpius, which I condone, even enjoy, because it doesn't conflict with the canon.  And because I love thinking about Ron and Draco being forced to get along while Hermione and Astoria become best friends over wedding planning.  

When you draw HUMAN characters as cats or ponies.  Really? Are we six year old girls?  Why are we slapping cat hears on Ron?  Hermione, well she did it to herself.  But if you're drawing the characters as cats NOT in reference to that event, then don't post it.  Don't clutter my inbox with it, please.

I think that ends Rant of the Day.

Agree?  Disagree?  Disagreement is welcome, but nastiness is not.

okay I'm not going to kill someone for liking slash (everyone has their own tastes, right?), but I agree that I do find it sort of gross and would rather not find it in my inbox, thank you!
And I'm totally with you on anime and the OC's. gawsh. I like anime if it's drawn well, and the artist clearly has some idea of basic anatomy, but otherwise it's just like... jeez get some life drawing classes, please!

i don't dislike slash because it's slash. i dislike it because people use characters that are STRAIGHT. you're changing something that is so fundamental to who they are that they are no longer the character that was originally created.

also.. when the characters are underage. I mean... seriously -___-. If they're 16+ then fine, whatever floats your boat, but when they're like 12 that is seriously disturbing. lol
