* UnfortunateImplications:
** The only person of colour in Slytherin is written out of the story early on. (This is only a revision trope, and was due to the author not wanting to write an extra Slytherin into the story.)
*** [[spoiler:Blaise is written back into the story as of Y5.]]
** While it's probably made to make the audience cringe, Harry unfortunately [[spoiler: has a case of BigBrotherWorship for the misogynistic and borderline abusive Elan Malfoy.]]
** The only female contestant in the Triwizard Tournament, the best her school had to offer, [[spoiler: is defeated in a one-on-one duel by someone much younger than her. Which could be excused because it's Franchise/HarryPotter; however, when Harry observes the male contestants duelling, he is overwhelmed by awe for their strength.]]
*** A quote from the chapter in question: [[spoiler: "He couldn't out-duel her. That much was clear to him in the first few minutes. She was the best Beauxbatons had to offer. She had been trampled by a dragon and dragged into the depths of the lake by grindylows, but she was no slouch at her wand-work. Her movements were precise, her hands sure and steady. A steady stream of syllables rolled off her tongue, and the blasts of coloured light were giving Harry a steady workout to avoid. He couldn't keep this up forever. He couldn't cast as fast as her and dodging would only work until he made a mistake." Harry is clearly impressed with Fleur and has to resort to some unorthodox tactics. He causes her to slip and fall, breaking her wand arm. She then switches to using her other hand. "Harry was amazed at her tenacity. He hadn't realized she had such heart. That determined look in her eye was downright scary. Fleur wasn't as good with her left hand, and Harry got lucky as she miscast her shield and got hit with his Stunner. She crumpled to the ground. Harry, breathing heavy, didn't even have the wind to gloat."]]

*** Fleur came in dead last in the canon too.
*** Barty Jr was interfering in the cannon - we don't know if anyone was getting in the way of the other champions in the fic.
