YMMV / Strange And Invisible History

Go To

  • Jerkass Woobie: You know how Snape won over the fangirls in Deathly Hallows with his tragic back story and constant love for Lily Potter? Now he has see Voldemort looking at him with Lily's eyes. He failed to protect her son. Dude needs a hug.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • Stefan crosses it when he murders his uncle Grigor Borev to claim his title and then uses it to conscript thousands of peasants, burning their homes and driving their women and children into the forest (in Eastern Europe, in December) to die. The fact he talks casually about his men raping the women is icing on the cake.
    • Travers goes over when he admits cheerfully to his mistress Rita Skeeter that he was the one who loosed the Dementors on the muggle village to test their capabilities, and justifies it by pointing out they're only muggles.
    • The Dark Lord wins extra points for managing a Shout-Out during his MEH. 'Take her away, Lucius. We have never been able to abide the snivelling of women.'
    • This is after he announces he has no intention of honouring his treaty and saving Bulgaria, including Hermione, Viktor and Draco, and fully means to leave them to die.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
  • Squick:
    • Everything and anything to do with Voldemort possessing Harry. He goes through puberty. He is turned on by Hermione. Pass the Brain Bleach please.
    • If the notion of Wormtail having sex wasn’t disturbing enough, the notion of having it with another rat definitely is.
    • The description of Tamm’s eye.
    • The Lestranges (and Sirius's) rotting, post-Azkaban teeth, and Wizarding dentistry generally. Why? Because rather than remove bad teeth, the medi-wizard simply uses what amounts to magical acid to melt the bad spot out and then rebuilds the tooth with new enemel. Reading about Sirius spitting mouthfuls of his liquified teeth into a garbage can is pretty awful.
    • The assassin who gets mauled to death by the werewolf children. The poor bastard was under the imperius curse and certainly didn't deserve to die like that.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Barty: The Bad Thing was all for nothing. Wasn't it?
      Snape: Yes.
    • Barty asks if he can meet the Longbottoms. Because they're broken like he is.
