GAH.

I know I've posted about this before, but it really irritates me.

Why do Harry/Hermione writers insist on naming Hermione's parents Dan and Emma? It's not cute, it's not funny, and it's not witty. Especially after the first fifty times or so.

It's gotten so bad that every time I see that in a fic, I have to suppress a scream. I'm starting to call them FUCKING DAN AND FUCKING EMMA. Yes, with the all-caps.

Really, there are thousands of perfectly good names out there. Use your parents names! Use your name! Name them after your favorite TV show characters! Just--stop with the FUCKING DAN AND FUCKING EMMA!

Yes. Yes, they do. I could cite about a half-dozen fics off the top of my head, but I don't want it to explode.

Late comment - but I was looking around your blog and saw this post - I agree - its majorly annoying, but is it really any different than all the Harm/Mac shippers who always either decided that Harm was Harmon David and Mac was Sarah Catherine or that their twins (gah!) would be named David and Catherine? I mean the whole it being her parents thing makes it even odder, but still - why do fanfic people decide to let others have so much ammo for making fun of them? (said the hypocritical girl who probably should be made fun of myself for forgetting that no, Jane Austen herself did not give Colonel Fitzwilliam the name Richard - even if 99.9% of all good P&P fanfic have him named Richard...where that one came from who knows - not from the actor (in the 1995 P&P)'s name though...)
