Friday Fics Fix - The Future Is Weird (Ft. Harry Potter)

'The tall Death Eater was wearing a shirt that said, 'Hermione Has Forgotten How To Dance,' so Hermione dipped his face in mud.'

OK, so this week's fic is a little bit different.

It's def. on the strange side, but there's a reason for that!

And all will be revealed *mysterious hand motions*

(I don't know what mysterious hand motions are either, just go with it.)

As you might've guessed, this week's fic is Harry Potter-y.

(Ha, now I really want a fic called Harry's Pottery, where Harry just makes porcelain and cups and things... ok, maybe the heatwave in combination with this week's fic has gotten to my head.)

'Ron's Ron shirt was just as bad as Ron himself.'

Yes, you read that correctly. 

Poor Ron and his Ron shirt. 😅

Ron wearing 'R' jumper: 'Oh my mum made it, looks like you've got one too.'

...I couldn't resist! 🙈

Now, by this point you either know what this fic is (which means you probably spend even more time on the internet than me - well done!) or you're wondering wtf is going on.

(Or maybe you're neither. Life is weird, y'know. *shrugs*) (OK, I'm def. blaming the heat.)

This fic was written by a robot. I sh** you not. AI wrote this fanfiction! 😲

(The AI did have a little help, in the form of human contributors who fed it a bunch of Harry Potter stuff; they're credited at the bottom of the fic.)

The result is some random-a** sh**! Although, I've def. read fanfiction which made less sense.

Honestly, it's surprisingly coherent. Albeit hilarious in its randomness. 😅

Now, I'm gonna link to it, and then I'm gonna link to a YouTube version of it, because the original link is in images, and they don't seem to have any alt-text.

I ran the basic Microsoft narrator over it and it couldn't even figure out there were pictures there, it jumped from the navigation to the footer.

So for you visually impaired folks, there are a bunch of versions of this fic on YouTube where people narrate it, animate it, act it out, whatever. 

I'm gonna link to the one produced by the company who own the AI, but please be warned that it has some flashing images.

This week's fic is:

  1. This sounds really cool! Kinda like those mad-libs games when you choose a bunch of random words and create a story.

    1. Or where you right a line, fold the paper concertina-style, and write the first word of the next person's sentence, and then pass it on! Lol :)
