Have you ever looked back upon a story you wrote a very long time ago and hit your head on the desk with shame? I have. Just tonight, actually. I just read some of my first Harry Potter fanfiction that I wrote in 2003 and I couldn't help but groan in embarrassment. How could I have ever wrote such crap? I was 14 when I wrote it, but I find it absolutely dreadful.



Harry Potter was lying in his bed thinking of what he could do with Hermione and Ron tomorrow, as it was his 20th birthday. Hermione and Ron lived 10 hours away from Harry and he was excited to see them again because he hasn’t seen them since they were 18. Hermione and Ron had got married to 2 different people even though they had feelings for others and Hermione was pregnant with her first child.

Hermione was married to Viktor Krum, they married the day after Hermione turned 18 and invited all the Hogwarts teachers and most of the Gryffindors she knew whereas Viktor invited anyone who wanted to come. Hermione wasn’t very happy with him, but like he told Harry and Ron that he didn’t care what Hermione thought; that made Harry and Ron furious, they tried to tell Hermione what he said but she wouldn’t listen.

Ron married Pierre Durelle, a French girl who came to Hogwarts in their 7th year. She was beautiful with silver hair and silver eyes and she attracted many guys, some people say she is not fully witch and that she was part Veela but she denied it. Harry and Hermione always thought that she only wanted Ron because he won lotto and became rich. Pierre told Ron that she never wanted children and this made Ron unhappy.

Harry never got married and he knew why, Harry was gay and there weren’t very many gay guys around that Harry fancied. Harry became a professional Quidditch player for England and in his spare time he was an auror. Harry had killed Voldemort in his 7th year of Hogwarts, but there were still many people who wanted to become the next dark lord.

There were rumors going around that Draco Malfoy would be the next dark lord, but not many people believed it because Harry and he had become friends and Draco became a lot nicer to people. Harry and Draco were always seen with each other when they were 18; they went to nightclubs, Diagon Alley and many more places. They were always in the paper as the ‘Double Image’ (nobody knew why people called them that) and they were very honored in the wizarding world.

When Harry had to go places for quidditch he never saw Draco again. Harry sometimes wondered where he was, but always tried to keep his mind of him.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Harry heard the doorbell ring and he got up to get it. He opened the door to see a person he never knew.

“Hello, my name is Kirk Lolo and I am here on the orders of Hermione Krum. I have to take you to the Brown’s nightclub.” Said the stranger.

Harry was confused but just nodded and got his things. He got dressed in lose leather pants and a button up shirt. He then gave his hair a quick brush and walked back downstairs. He got his house keys and walked out to the stranger. The stranger waited outside next to a black limo. Harry was surprised at there was a limo, he knew Viktor Krum was rich but he never knew he would spend money on Harry like this, but Harry knew Hermione would.

Harry hopped in the Limo when Kirk followed him in. It felt like a minute when they got there. Harry hopped out and went in, there was a big noise that surprised Harry. Everybody he knew was there, they had sung out surprise. Harry saw everyone there he knew including Slytherins. There was Pansy Parkinson, Gregory Goyle, Vincent Crabbe, Blaise Zabini, Seamus Finnigan, Neville Longbottom, Dean Thomas and many more. Hermione and Ron walked out from behind the crowd and walked up to Harry and cuddled him.

“Surprise, Harry” Hermione said with a smile on her face.

“Hermione, how dare you” Harry joked and all three of them laughed.

Harry turned back to the crowd and saw someone he never knew he would see again




LMFAO, someone tell me what went through my mind back then!

All right, didn´t read it, not much into Harry Potter fanfictions, but I know what you mean. I know that feeling. I wrote a small fanfiction about Pirates of Caribbean, about Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner, slash of course, and as I re-read it some times later, I blushed and was ashamed. But then, I would write something similar again, but it would be more, how should I saw, not something people under the age of 18 would be allowed to read. LOL
Don´t be ashamed of anything you wrote. To the time you wrote this piece, it was what you felt, what you had in mind and that´s fine. Don´t be ashamed. :-)

I fail at not replying way sooner. How true what you say is. While it's something to hang you head in shame, it's also something that you can look at and be proud of. You know, by just looking at old stories you have written, that you have improved your writing. Since finding this story, I have learnt to keep all of my old fanfictions so I may look back at where I began.
