YMMV: A Sad Story
- Badass Decay: Neither Harry nor his friends from the wizarding world can do anything against the Dursleys even when his life is in danger.
- Canon Defilement: Canon? What Canon?
- Idiot Plot
- Mary Sue: Maria, who is also abused by her guardian and falls in love with Harry.
- Moral Event Horizon: Vernon crosses it by beating Harry repeatedly and ultimately causing his death.
- Not to mention, killing Hedwig in Harry's backstory.
- Narm Charm: The only reason to ever read it.
- Ron the Death Eater: Vernon. In canon, he was a Jerkass. Here, he's a borderline monster.
- So Bad, It's Good: It may be listed as Angst/Drama on Fanfiction Dot Net, but sure doesn't come across that way to nearly everyone.
