After a few hours of sleep, I wake up to find there are now over 55 registered members on Mystery-Shack.com. Woohooo! Not bad for our first day! I'm happy! So, this thread is gonna be for chit-chat, talking, about whatever you want. It's not a spam thread, however, so please let's all keep up a polite tone.
Also, I am such an idiot.
I have been re-reading the Harry Potter books lately and recently finished the fourth - The Goblet of Fire. So tonight I started reading the fifth, The Order of the Phoenix.
Oh wait, I didn't.
I am reading on a Kindle I borrowed and the books were already on it.
So I just spent 6 hours on reading a Harry Potter story that was entirely new to me, having nothing to do with The Order of the Phoenix, but I thought, maybe the film was just very different for time reasons. But when nothing ever started even leading to anything related to TOOTP, I got confused.
I have read about Harry finding himself a pet snake named Cassandra while gardening for the Dursleys, making some sort of friends with Dudley, Hermione being taken in by the Dursleys because she had been victim to an abduction attempt while being in Greece with her parents, since the Dursleys house has protection spells to keep them save from Voldemort or other dark wizards.
Suddenly, everyone is completely Mary-Sue, Hermione is suddenly sexy, all girls at school suddenly are attracted to Harry and OH, Harry is a prefect and learning to be an animagus. Love trangles and romance EVERYWHERE!
So, 134 pages in (of over 900) turns out this is a fanfiction. It's not even all that bad, after all I've spent 6 hours reading it before realising it's definitely not the Order of The Phoenix. I't just a little out of character. It's now four in the morning over here. I'm going to sleep now. X_x
The fanfiction is called Harry Potter and the psychic Serpent or something. I googled for it so I know what the bloody hell I was reading.
