There are people who do that with Umbridge?

I mean, I don't want to see it; I'm just morbidly curious.

Along the same lines, one of my favorite things is when it seems like our heroes can't win and they don't see any way out but they keep going because it's right/it's who they are/if they give in the bad guys can do something awful/someone needs to stand up and say no. That scene at the end of Return of the Jedi where Luke almost gives into the Dark Side and then he doesn't and looks the Emperor in the face and says "I am a Jedi, like my father before me"? I get shivers every time. It's horribly cliché,but that doesn't mean it's bad.

As for things I don't like, love triangles. They're not inherently bad, I guess, but I just vastly don't care and when stories get hung up on them I feel like my time is being wasted. Some people might like them, but they're not for me.

      • I really like fics that explore character's limits. Have you ever seen the movie The Four Feathers? It isn't much like the book. One of only a few things that I think the movie is better. (Ella... more

        If you can think of it, humanity has done it, no matter how ridiculous or insane or horrible or unlikely it seems. Here's some proof if you're not convinced (WARNING: ALL FICS NSFW):... more
        • Well, that was quite the read.Snowy the Sane Fangirl, Thu Aug 9 4:16pm
          I haven't read any of the fics yet. Not sure if I want to. But I read all the summaries and tags and yup. That was an Experience.
