* In many, many shipping fics detention in Snape's vocabulary is practically synonym to date. Never mind that the students involved (usually it's Hermione) are in most cases underage. If Dumbledore does find out, he is sympathetic to the Power of Love anyway, and the student's friends are outraged merely because it's ''Snape'' the greasy git and not because of dull things like legal and ethical issues.

*** As pointed out in several fics, the so-called super special blood protection wards are actually pretty worthless considering they doesn't protect against Dementors, Death Eaters, or [[AbusiveParents the Dursleys themselves]] and even the claim that it protects against Voldemort seems kind of dubious considering that: (1) Harry never considered Privet Drive to be [[ExactWords his home]], it was merely the residence he was tortured in, so there is some question whether the wards ever existed at all; (2) Harry never received any "love" at Privet Drive and these super special bloodwards were supposed to run on the "PowerOfLove"; (3) [[spoiler: Voldemort takes Harry's blood for his resurrection]] rendering the "blood protection" useless; (4) TheReveal that Harry is [[spoiler: Voldemort's horcrux]] and since the wards are keyed around Harry, Voldemort may have been on the Privet Drive "invited in" list from the very beginning; (5) If the wards exist they are only keyed to the house and Harry doesn't live his entire life inside the house--indeed he is often outside going to school, doing chores like washing the car, weeding the garden, mowing the lawn, cleaning the drains, and running to the store on errands for the Dursleys. He's also often outside, in the park trying to avoid the wrath and vitriol of Vernon and Petunia and trying to escape being beaten to a bloody pulp by Dudley and his gang. These fics tend to ignore the fact that the blood protection was activated by Petunia's act of taking Harry in, however reluctantly; they prevented any Death Eaters from finding Harry while he was a child (considering Bellatrix Lestrange was still on the loose, this was a serious danger); that the protection is what [[spoiler: stopped Quirrell from killing him in the first book]]; and that it is implied that [[spoiler: Voldemort using his blood to get around the blood protections]] is what [[spoiler: stopped him from being able to kill Harry in the Forest.]]

* Harry and Ginny (or Harry and Hermione, or Harry, Hermione ''and'' Ginny, or Harry and Luna, or Harry/[[LauncherOfAThousandShips Anyone]], or Harry/''[[APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy Everyone]]'') discover they have a Soul Bond linking their hearts in eternal Twoo Wuv and their magical cores in eternal badass.

Often ties into the "mate" concept listed above.

** Despite the fact that, as noted on the Fanon page, there is no such concept of "Light" and "Dark" in the actual books!

** Occasionally this is averted and it's not a good thing; Harry ends up as fat and nasty as Dudley and has to suffer major personality changes to be kind enough at the end to face Voldemort.

* The "Hogwarts AU". Basically a TransplatFic where the characters from another fandom are simply plopped into the Harry Potter setting (and usually de-aged). Expect the main characters of the Harry Potter verse to be in the background, if they're around at all.
