So there I am, happily reading a fanfic synopsis and nodding along with all the tags. I like those tags. I like where this fic is going. I’m going to enjoy this fic.
Suddenly, my eye catches a teeny tiny tag squished in amongst all the others.
I know, I know! Different strokes for different folks and all that, but this one just doesn’t compute for me. At all. And it’s everywhere in the Harry Potter fandom. EVERYWHERE. There are so many potentially awesome fics that I’m missing out on because I’d rather set fire to my own eyebrows than read this shit.
On the flipside, thank you fanfiction authors for tagging those squicks, yo. Fandom would be a complete minefield otherwise!
