After his ill-fated trip to the Department of Mysteries that led to the death of his godfather, Harry Potter decides he must take control of his own life. But if a certain Gryffindor know-it-all ha...
(#) jabarber69 2010-10-02 12:37:05 PMHey I like your story and all but was wondering are you by any chance related to MoRon Weaseley!?! Cause only him or a relative would purposely put up a story with the sentences and paragraphs spaced so FAR apart....
I can see it now oh MoRon was told to write a essay on a certain spell and it had to be 10 pages long so he labored on it for hours....no days until he finally got one page done, so then a lightbulb suddenly went off in his tiny pea brain and thinking he was so so smart he then tripled spaced all the paragraphs making that one page report into a ten page report.....
Author's responseI'll be totally honest--I did not even notice this until just now. I didn't type them up spaced so far apart, obviously.
I didn't doublecheck the posting here at Ficwad, because this isn't the only place I post it. All I did was load the HTML file of the chapter, and tinker with the italic parts, because I remembered those screwing up at times in the past here. I never even thought to check the spacing here; I just assumed it would work fine.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention (even if you did kinda sorta insult me in the process.) As soon as I get the chance, I'll see what I can do to correct the spacing issue.
- Heh, interesting communications and I do rather like the way the friendship between Harry & Hermione is intensifying through these letters. I rather hope that this process continues and negates some of the nastier aspects of canon Sixth Year. It would be amusing if the new, more aware, Harry did catch on to potions being used (if they were_ and managed to negate them before they could cause problems for him and Hermione.
Author's responseThis sixth year will be VERY different than HBP. I didn't like HBP very much, and have no desire to recreate it. There may be a few things from HBP and/or DH that pop up, but by and large, things will be going decidedly AU from this point on.
- I like this. The gradual increase is rarely seen in harmony-stories. Still, i miss a bit of action. It doesn't have to be a lot, just something other than letters and mundanities. I also agree completely with the winged cat above.
I also think spacing is good. I assume you fixed the complaint as i found nothing to remark upon. It would be funny to have the pair threaten to transfer and a honest headmaster bending backwards to get them to stay. Ah well. I like the story, it could do with some extra events, but I'll be here when you update.
Author's responseI know what you mean about the gradual changing of feelings. Stories that have Harry and Hermione snogging each other in Chapter 1 cause me to lose interest pretty quickly in most cases.
There will be action later on. This won't necessarily be a fast-paced, action-packed story, but there will be action along the way.
The spacing issue has already been corrected, yes. Believe me, you would have noticed if it hadn't. If I had been reading this story here on Ficwad, I would've been pretty annoyed at the bizarre spacing, so I'm glad that reviewer brought the problem to my attention.
