Author’s Summary: She was a beautiful, enigmatic, and talented student from Beauxbatons. He was an average Hogwarts student; nothing special. How could he ever hope to gain her love? Harry dreams about the Yule Ball on the beautiful morning of the second Saturday of December 1994.
The Jokes: Overall, the humour in this fic is pretty solid. It opens with some decently funny innuendos, and has a pretty shocking and entertaining joke near the middle. Unfortunately, I feel like the last three or so lines kind of undercut the humour a little bit. Either way, it’s still definitely solid and works pretty well, especially considering that this is Luq’s first work.
The Characterization: Harry’s really the only character who matters here, and yeah I think he’s written well enough. He has one clear motivation, and all his actions are at least tangentially in line with that motivation, and the results are some jokes, most of which are funny. It’s decidedly serviceable.
The Writing Mechanics: This is very mechanically solid. There are definitely a few errors here and there, but everything is spelled correctly, and the grammar mostly works. There’s hardly any dialogue, and while none of it is spectacular or anything, none of it is especially clunky either, so….yeah it works.
Overall: Hey it’s a silly, fun little april fools fic that I think is a very solid start. This certainly makes me look forward to Luq’s first serious attempt at writing, so….Good Tier ahoy!
Final Thoughts: If you like parody fics then you’ll like this. It’s not going to blow your mind, but it’s very short and it’ll probably make you chuckle once or twice.
Tier: Good Tier
