The battles are bigger. The tension is greater. Buckle those safety belts.
- My goodness, thigns are getting complicated! Good going Susan, though.
Author's responseDon't they always. I am pleased that you like Susan. Poor thing always seems good enough for the Harem fics, but not good enough for the starring role. ~Jim
(#) whatareyouevensaying 2006-11-03 09:17:45 AMYou did a great job with Skeeter's article. Mainly, though, you've done amazingly well with the villains of the story. Rather than having them use one half-assed plan at the end, they're disrupting the Order and doing an excellent job of it. THESE are the Death Eaters that people fear.
Author's responseThank you! My main calling is to give you a realistic depiction of what a wizarding war would be like. The Villains need to be believable and who doesn't love Rita? ~Jim
- Damn...how do you do it?
Two different stories, same characters...but they are still different! I was half expecting Bungle!Bill but nope, this Bill is different and still Bill.
Rita! Wow! Wow!
How many copies of the Hollywood rags did you buy to write that article? I can see a bit of a Joan Rivers approach to that Rita. And having her date Gilderoy...fantastic!
Author's responseI think alot of people expected Bill and Fleur to be the same as my other story. I could pretend and say that I meticulously plotted out Rita's article, but it just kind of flowed out onto the computer. I don't know what that says about me, but I was really able to get into her mindset. Frightening?
- OUTSTANDING CHAPTER!!!! I loved it and I can't wait to see what happens in the next chapter. I'm glad that Susan and Harry have made up, I do hope that Harry and the Abbotts can restore some kind of relationship if for no other reason than so that Susan can still be friends with them without there being to much undo tension between them and Harry. DO keep up the outstanding work and update soon please:):):):)
Author's responseI think Dumbledore will make sure that a certain distance is maintained with the Abbott family.~Jim
- Wow...this is truly a disaster....I am running out of praises for your stories. I loved the "Bill speach" were he said that Harry shouldn't fight the war with the help of kids.Tottaly true and a fact that has irked me about fanfiction and the books for quite some time. The only thing I have against this chapter is how easily Harry forgives Susan...i'm really hoping that he won't forgive the Abbots that fast as he and Ginny could have died because of them...the rest of the chapter is fantastic by the way...I'm still completely baffled by how easily you change some of the basic building blocks of your characters and still make them seem the same in both of your stories...
Author's responseThanks. I like writing what I consider to be real arguments, where neither side is completely right or wrong. Had Susan not said the Don't become a Monster thing, Harry was prepared for a knock down drag out argument. That comment hit close to home. ~Jim
(#) nesparatu621 2006-11-04 08:33:21 AMWow. I really like this story, in part because it isn't the normal good triumphs. Both sides are suffering and both sides are experiencing horrific things. Now, what is Voldemort planning with Hestia, "Emmy", and Fleur (all of whom I now deeply pity). Can't wait to see how this all plays out, and whether they are lost for good or able to be saved.
Author's responseGood lord I am behind on my responses on this site. Well chapter 27 is now up so you can see how it has all played out. Hope you enjoyed it.~Jim
- This story is good, it stops a little short of greatness though. The morals seem a bit off.
You keep having people telling Harry how he should fight this and doing the complete opposite themselves. Its rather annoying. Pretty much you have people telling Harry if he kills Tom with anything greater than a tickling he is evil. People can't really be expected to fight like that, no one in history has (and won).
Author's responseWell thanks for the review. I would say in my defense that people objected to little things like Harry butchering Snape and carving him up into little pieces and practicing possession on Ginny. You know little stuff like that.
