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.
