Fanfiction recommendation

Yesterday I came across a story at FanFiction. In this cross over story, Rincewind (from Pratchett’s Discworld series) is appointed as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher at Hogwarts (the wizard school in the Harry Potter books).

The author apologizes for the story (in particular for his bad English), but nevertheless he hopes we would enjoy it. And yes, I really enjoyed it. The story is actually hilarious and it is definitely one of the best fan fiction I have read so far. Especially the first two chapters are great, thereafter the quality – in my opinion – drops a bit, but still good enough for a good laugh.

The description of Rincewind as DADA teacher is quite similar how I would do – in fact I was searching for a Discworld/Harry Potter cross over after I got idea of Rincewind as DADA teacher – and would not disappoint Discworld fans.

However, I do not think one would not get the story unless he is familiar with both Discworld (having read The Colour of Magic should be sufficient) and Harry Potter. If you don’t know about Rincewind, Twoflower, the Luggage, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Draco, Snape and Dumbledore, then you will probably lost reading this story.

So here’s the link:
