Ten years after Hogwarts Ron and Ginny are murdered, and Hermione is the prime suspect.
- Having read the first iteration of this one, I know darn well that it's not at all an "open and shut" case and that there are various aspects of this case that are going to make life very "interesting" for a lot of folk. All in all, I suspect it's going to be "one for the books" before everything is finally settled down and the problem permanently resolved.
Author's responseYep, I'm following the basic outline for the first few chapters, with a few changes here and there to tease the reader into coming back.
Let me know how well it works, or doesn't!

- Unless you're going to drop it on Draco, but I still see Harry as the most obvious candidate...
Author's responseThanx for reading, and reviewing.
Totally wrong, but brilliant, nonetheless.
Wait and see - all will be revealed!
(#) Wonderbee31 2009-01-31 03:23:41 PMGlad to see this again, and looking forward to your take on things, as well as what will happen when more things come out of the dark, and how everyone involved will react. Got to say, awesome to see the Neville from the later books here, who won't take any more crap than is neccessary.
Author's responseThanx, as always, for reading and reviewing.
Oh yeah, remember, this is the Neville who decapitated Nagini at the Battle of Hogwarts.
Pissing him off = bad idea.
(#) Worldmaker 2009-01-31 11:04:15 PMWhat is it about Harmonians that make them engage in such ridiculous vendettafics?
I'm not trying to flame here, I'm trying to understand. I, like most fans, have my OTP (and its not necessarily one of the canon ships), but have never in my life written a story in which I felt the need to destroy (or in this case, destroy and murder) two characters in order to get my ship to work. It's cliched, it's dumb, and it's blatantly ridiculous.
Author's responseHey, thanks for reading in spite of the flaws.
Of course my knee-jerk reaction is, if you don’t like it ___________________ (fill in the blank)
But then, I turn to scripture to try to help the unbelievers understand.
Reading from the First Book of Harmony, chapter one, verse one through seven.
1. Thou shalt not allow the unnatural pairing of Hermione and Ron, as this is an abomination. 2. Thou can’st have a pairing of Ginevra and Harry as long at the Ginger doth share. 3. If the abomination exists thou shalt portray Ron in his true form, that of an insufferable gittith. 4. If the abomination exists thou art allowed (pronounced, “allow-ed”) to either turn back the clock to a time whither thou can’st prevent the abomination or thou must smite the Ron unto death. 5. Smiting Ginevra doth make Harry sad, and should be avoided, if possible, but only if the Ginger doth share. 6. Surely cliches art allowed to flourish in the land of fan-fiction, for they are the backbone of the writer dissatisfied with cannon. 7. Surely lemony goodness shall follow harmonious pairing for ever and ever. Amen.
