Everything always goes according to the plan doesn't it...
(#) whatareyouevensaying 2007-04-11 08:12:16 AMOnce again, no alert. Darn site's bugging out on me.
I liked this chapter quite a bit, primarily because of Rita's involvement. Yes, I hate her, but you managed to write her so well that I hated her even more than I did in canon. Impressive work. I also really enjoyed the Charlie/Narcissa scene.
Author's responseThanks for the review. Looking around at all my reviews that I haven't responded to I think the site wasn't informing me of them. Anyway, glad you liked Rita.~Jim

My question is leaning more towards Neville and his great-however many times-uncle and their plan here. Are you creating room for a potential sequel to this story as well. I'm also curious on what you plan with the parents of the two. Obviously Inferi come right to mind, but a little necromancy couldn't hurt either. Please let me know.
Author's responseSimple Inferi just won't do. It lacks the sense of grandeur necessary. Still no sequel planned. More coming soon.~Jim

From my reading, JKR simply doesn't like this character. It's the same as Doyle with Sherlock Holmes. Thus, Hermione is a badly written character which grates on many readers. I like her too, but for (what I suspect) different reasons.
My theory for her getting away with everything is that on the surface level, she's a model student. It would be unthinkable that such a person would be conniving, cunning, ruthless, whatever. And so, such a person, if they do something underhanded, could get away with it.
My prediction for book 7: Hermione will die. Poorly-written main-supporting characters do not usually survive.
Author's responseActually, from what I've read from JKR, Hermione is representative of her in the story. I really doubt she'll whack Hermione, but there's nothing to stop me from doing it....
- Hey, if the end of line compulsion was working for both of them, then shouldn't the children all be male? After all, the male is supposed to carry on the bloodline traditionally ... and as the purebloods were responsible for the clause, they would have ensured that the first few children who filled the quota (at least) were boys ...
