It bothers me...

When I go to read Harry Potter fan fiction, and they age up when Hogwarts starts. Everything is balanced properly against it starting at age 11, and not any time later or earlier. Earlier and they would graduate before becoming adults (unless you start adding years to the education), later, and you are forcing them to stay well after they become adults, which for that level of education, is really stupid.

I get why they are doing it; it's because they want characters to wind up in incredibly violent or more adult situations in earlier years but are too chickenshit to let it happen at younger ages. I refuse to read stories like that. It ruins my immersion.

Had another crazy story idea, but I haven't completely fleshed it out yet, so I don't want to say much... other than it requires a much alternate history where the Cold War escalated and what amounts to Global Thermonuclear War breaks out... and no Tic-Tac-Toe is gonna prevent it from happening...
