Over the course of seven fics, Ariana comes to Hogwarts, befriends all the characters that the author likes, discovers she is an "Empath," which therefore makes her very special and powerful, Voldemort decides she's more important than Harry and focuses on alternatively killing her or stealing her powers, and...that's really all there is. Except the author also decided to throw in {{Wangst}} out the wazoo, [[TastesLikeDiabetes sappy scenes in which the main cast talks about how they'll be together forever and ever]] ([[ItsAllAboutMe for Ariana's sake]]), love melodrama...anything to pad the story out to seven fics.

fics. Characters are nothing more than OOC dopplegangers, the taming of the SSnape occurs... Were you surprised?



* AlphaBitch: Maria fits all the hallmarks of this, complete with being from a rich family, picking on the main heroine, and having her own GirlPosse.

* AlphaBitch: Maria [[ScarySue Maria]] fits all the hallmarks of this, complete with being from a rich family, picking on the main heroine, and having her own GirlPosse.GirlPosse. Ariana, in a SHOCKING turn of events, fits many of these tropes too. She whines and bitches all through the seven terrible fics, complete with misise of powers and regular bullying with no repercussion, and gets blatant favouritism and her own posse of year one OCs after Harry and the gang leave.

* BlondesAreEvil: Maria is blonde, as well as the local AlphaBitch and Ariana's rival.

* IdiotBall: Several of the canon characters hold it at times, but nobody holds it as tightly as Ariana does, whenever the 'plot' with Voldemort has to happen.
** Especially when Ariana receives a (fake) letter from Sirius, telling her to meet him in Hogsmeade near an alley, alone--she ''believes it and does so.'' And then when Sirius himself never shows, Ariana wonders what's taking so long, right before getting kidnapped. This is done after Voldemort has made several successful attempts to abduct her in the past, including last year, when Draco kidnapped both her and Harry the moment they left the company of their friends.



* [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything The Aurors Who Don't Do Anything]]

to:

* [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything The Aurors Who Don't Do Anything]]Anything]]: They are mentioned, but never do anything helpful. The one time they are supposed to appear on-screen, Ariana conveniently falls into Voldemort's trap and the rest of the time is spent with her, until she is rescued by the canon characters and the Aurors are never mentioned again.



* TooDumbToLive: Ariana receives a (fake) letter from Sirius, telling her to meet him in Hogsmeade near an alley, alone--she ''believes it and does so.'' And then when Sirius himself never shows, Ariana wonders what's taking so long, right before getting kidnapped. This is done after Voldemort has made several successful attempts to abduct her in the past, including last year, when Draco kidnapped both her and Harry the moment they left the company of their friends.



* WriteWhoYouKnow: One of Ariana's friends, Reginald, is supposedly based on a friend of the author's whom she claims has a crush on her. Reginald also forces himself onto Ariana several times despite her saying she doesn't want to, which [[UnfortunateImplications speaks very, very badly for the real-life person...]]

* DetractorNickname: Ariana is often called "Airhead" by the sporkers in their {{MST}}. The canon characters also get names to emphasize how OutOfCharacter they are. For example: "Hairy Potter," "Don Weasel," "Devil Shortbottom," etc.

Added DiffLines:

* UnrequitedLoveLastsForever: Ariana's mother, Tabitha, had a thing for Snape when she was about nine and he was about ten. He reacts about the way any snotty kid might to a girl that he finds supremely annoying. Apparently she wasn't able to move on from this, because ten years later (after she had already married and divorced somebody else) she tells Remus that she's still in love with Snape. Note that he moved in with the Malfoys right after telling her off, so it's questionable if she's even seen him in the ensuing years.

''The Ariana Black Series'' was a series of seven fanfics, written by Suethor "[[SelfInsert Ariana Black.]]" (The main series itself had seven stories, but the author also wrote several side-stories about Ariana's mother, and one about Ariana's rival, Maria. Technically they don't count as part of the actual series.)

Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: The story tends to swing between chapters of pointless "hee-hee, characters having fun!" antics to other chapters that are full of {{Wangst}}. Also, the sporkers note that any bad thing that happened seems to be forgotten immediately, with characters cracking jokes right after they escape from mortal peril.


Added DiffLines:

* OutOfFocus: After the second story Harry and Ariana move in with Sirius, and their friends start spending their summers there/moving in themselves. This means that a lot of characters, like most of the Weasleys, pretty much disappear.

* TheMaidenNameDebate: Since she's Ariana ''Black,'' her mom apparently decided to keep her last name (or maybe change it back when her husband left her). Which is kind of odd, given how terrified both originally are about people realizing they're related to Sirius.

Added DiffLines:

* MuggleBornOfMages: Ariana's mother, Tabitha.


Added DiffLines:

* NeverTrustATitle: "Ariana and the Mystery of the Muggle Murders" has no mystery--the first time the murders are mentioned the narration (correctly) tells us Voldemort is doing them to send a message to Snape. For that matter, the murders really don't really have much to do with the plot; the characters never try to ''stop'' the murders, they just let them know that Voldemort is ticked off.


Added DiffLines:

** In the fourth story we find out that for Ariana's protection, her former guardian Mita had an amulet that let her watch over her and know where she was. Ariana had been kidnapped by Voldemort and almost been raped by Malfoy twice each, and yet this had never come up before.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatMeasureIsANonSuper: In the fifth story the Death Eaters keep killing random Muggles in Snape's area to send him a message. Granted Snape is the person Ariana knows and cares about, but all the attention seems to be on worrying about him with very little concern for the poor, nameless people who are actually dying.

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Hermione especially, but also Ginny, seem to be in the habit of hitting their {{Love Interest}}s in the back of the head whenever they annoy them. PlayedForLaughs.
