DISCOVERY: Revisited. (The Butterfly Effect)

(#) Meteoricshipyards 2007-11-01

Just read both stories and am impressed. The emotional hammer of the first was well done. Pulled the heartstrings. I have kids, too.

This one was a great follow up. Vernon and Petunia (and Marge) were very much in character. It felt satisfying that justice prevailed. The scene with the Weasleys being told (and Ron holding Ginny) was sweet. Liked Susan's quick appearance (dang, I wish there were more H/Susan stories, but I digress).

Anyway, I thought it was an excellent look at the repercussions of Harry's death. Thanks for writing it.

WOW! Meteoricshipyards! Gushes!

Thank you for your kind review. While 'A Shocking Discovery' received many reviews, most of them expressing shock and amazement, 'Discovery: Revisited' didn't do so well. It was actually the harder of the two to write.

Almost everybody who reviewed the first wanted a sequel, so I began to work on 'revisited' Unfortunately as such things often do, the second page grew. I had wanted to involve only Dumbles and the Dursleys, but as I examined each person's contribution, someone else would come out of the wings. In all, I think I involved almost twenty people.

The comeuppance was based on my years of experience as a police officer (and growinng up as I did, it really felt good too put those evil 'people' into prison. Alorkin
