Troll Fics, one of the most interesting ideas of the 2000s. Write a fanfic intentionally So Bad, It's Good. What's wrong with this then? It failed to revolve back round to good, it's just bad.
This fanfic got a lot of attention, due to it's premise of Harry being a Christian instead of a wizard, attacks on other sects of Christianity, and the tangents about chest hair. The problem is, the Christian-centric fanfic has been done before, such as The Prayer Warriors, Supper Smash Bros Mishonh From God, Brewdening Love, and Harry Potter Turns To The Lord. In short, we're looking at a premise that's already overdone. Also, Harry Potter Troll Fics are not new, especially since it started in that fandom with the Fan Sequels to My Immortal. In short, this doesn't tread any new ground.
My other main problem is the lack of hilarity that comes with Troll Fics. Without it, interest is unlikely to be scored. The main problem is that it feels too realistic. This is uncannily like some real Christian propaganda I've seen, which is best not mentioned. A good satire needs to be exaggerated, in order to show that you're just kidding, which Grace Ann failed to do, so the joke doesn't work. While some parts, like 'Love the sin, hate the sinner' can raise laughs, it just isn't worth all the other boring and downright uncomfortable parts. For example, let's say you had this film you really didn't like, but there was one part near the end that was awesome, would you bother watching the 2 hours leading up to that moment? If you really think that's worth it, then maybe you'll be able to handle Hogwarts School Of Prayer And Miracles. If not, then just try and find a list of funny moments, and don't bother going through the whole shlock-fest of a story.
Simply put, if you want to read a good Troll Fic, then save yourself this junk, since I have a list of much better examples: Light and Dark The Adventures of Dark Yagami, Pokémon: Attack of Mewtwo, Code Geass: Awesome of the Rebellion, My Immortal, Becoming Female, Supper Smash Bros Mishonh From God, Flowers In A Box, and anything by Yoshizilla Rhedosaurus. These ones do the over the top style properly, and therefore, manage to be hilarious.
This fanfic is mostly awful. Grace Ann says that Harry Potter would turn her children into witches. So I'm a witch after reading the series? Well... the story isn't worth reading. But I suppose you can see it as a parody...
