Nefyr: Review Si  
The Fic: Can't Say We Didn't Try
The Author: Just Silver
Rating: PG-13 (PoV: M)
Fandom: Harry Potter
In a Nut Shell: A get-together fic. Expected Harry/Justin, but results in Draco/Justin and Harry/Seamus
Stand-out Pairings: Harry/Justin, Harry/Seamus, Draco/Justin
Grammar/Spelling: 7/10 Line spacing during dialogue is nonexistent. Otherwise, it's rather eloquent.
Originality and Creativity: 5.5/10 They do get credit for the plot twist, but the general idea of a get-together fic is a bit stale. There are some good lines and humor in here.
Plot and Characterization: 4/10 Justin seemed a bit "weak", Seamus the stereotypical queer, and Draco was just OOC (IMHO). Dean was rather...meh.
Status: Completed at 14 chapters, 12920 words.
Nota Bene: I didn't like it firstly because I don't like Draco in a "he's actually nice" context. Secondly, the characters are all a bit OOC (or a lot). It's misrated (a big pet pet peeve of mine, as semchance can attest to.
Spoonage: SHE SAID IT WOULD BE HARRY/JUSTIN IN THE SUMMARY!!! WHAT IS THIS CRAP?!?!?!?! I WANT MY HARRY/JUSTIN!!!!! *capslock at j00 all* *rampage with steam shovel*

I was looking for Harry/Justin when the possibility occured to me. I foud this and wasted an hour reading it. After a long search looking everywhere, I have found no Harry/Justin fic or any Harry/Ernie fic. I guess I'll go off to try to find some Oliver/Cedric, Harry/Cedric, Harry/Neville, Ron/Krum, and Harry/Oliver.

(Sorry about not responding sooner; LJ's being a bum about comments.) Weird, I just bookmarked that page about a week ago, and the next fic I'm reccing over at octet_recs will be from there. But I don't think any of the fics on there are on FFN, so I can't review them here.
