Myren has officially fallen, the survivors are lost on what to do, and things are looking dark for the light side. Harry/Fleur in later chapters
(#) irishfighter 2007-05-16 11:46:23 PMsad but good chapter,I shall be waiting for your next chapter.
Author's responseThanks, Im a little upset with this chapter and the next. They arent nearly my standard length. However I feel I make up for it in Chapter 12, since that is one of my favorites at the moment. My real favorite chapters haven't even been written which makes it hard for me cause I need to take my time and not rush the story so I can write my favorite parts.
(#) apocalypso 2007-05-17 06:43:01 AMHere's your review: good stuff :P
Seriously, though, I want to see more. It's almost infuriating to get the update email, then realize that the chapter just leaves you wanting more.
So... good luck writing the next one, I hope it turns out the way you want to. Good job with Bill, too, though I'm a fan of Bill being a useless, waste-of-time character.
Author's responseFirst things first, thanks for the review. Now I find myself torn, I feel glad that I'm keeping you interested and craving more because that means you really like my story. At the same time I don't want to infuriate anyone (=P). As to Bill, he was never an important character, but lets face it if Bill/Fleur weren't together then Fleur would have no reason to be with the Order so in a sense he served his purpose of bringing Fleur into the story. But now he's gone and I can finally start weaving Fleur and Harry together albeit slowly, she's mourning and Jericho isn't supposed to just rush to comfort her (thats called a rebound boys and girls that's why it wont happen). But I do have a Fleur/Harry scene comfort scene coming up in a few chapters. BUT I swear it will NOT be what anyone is expecting to happen when I say comfort...little teaser for your tastebuds.
- Hmm, does this come under the heading of "Win a few ... Lose a few"? It's quite the emotional chapter and you can't help feeling sorry for the Weaseleys' loss of Bill. I rather imagine finding some of his friends still alive is going to strengthen Jericho's resolve, much to several parties later distress.
Author's responseHmm well yes I guess that is what I was going for. I believe that in war it is to be expected that there will be losses, no one is invincible. However, when people kill off characters they tend to pick the most likely person who isnt part of the story (ex. Kingsley, poor guy dies all the time) or in an extravagent fashion (ex. Moody taking on 30 Death Eaters before being overwhelmed by Voldemort) in the scenario I made Bill didn't die extravagently and although he didn't have a large role he does serve a purpose. There will be deaths in this fic. Who I can't say, even J.K. didn't predict herself with 100% accuracy, she said in an interview 2 that were expected to live died and 1 that was to die lived. So it is all a matter of circumstance.
