- Love the story, but I keep getting update notices when there is no update. Any idea why that might be happening?
Author's responseHello, QOShea. How many alerts have you gotten? I think it's because I modified chapter four a couple days ago. I don't know how FicWad sees that.
The next chapter will be up soon.
- I got one yesterday, and under updated it is showing Updated: 2010/11/28. It is likely sending out a notification everytime you modify a chapter. At least that would be my guess.
Anyway, great story, looking forward to seeing Harry school both Dumbles and Voldy.
Author's responseYeah, that's what I suspected.
'Schooling' is coming soon to a chapter near you.
- Haven't read the story, but can't find a "contact" link here on FW. Anyway, shoot me an e-mail sometime Alorkin, my addy is "firstname.lastname@example.org" - I've got a question and proposition for you.
Author's responseI sent the contact info to your contact sheet.
Just in case, here it is again:
Proposition. Sorry, never on the first date.
- This is a great story, I enjoy it. But I am sad to see that there is no real resolution to the story, yes voldemort is dead, but I would like to see an epilogue.
Author's responseHello, Fefffy.
I've been horribly busy these past few weeks. Sorry all.
The aftermath is almost finished, but due to its size, I may have to chop it in half. In that case, there will be a separate epilogue.
- I have been reading a lot of HP Fan fic recently, and this is one of the better ones that I've read. I hope this is not the end of the story.
Author's responseThank you Gwydionc, this story si nearly done. Theaftermath chapter has been posted and one more to wrap up all the loose ends. I'm happy you've enjoyed the ride.
(#) Nekoranmakun 2011-12-19I really enjoyed this story, it was a well thought out story with an excellent plot. While I don't agree 100% with how you portrayed Dumbledore, you backed up everything in the story, and even backed some of it up with quotes from the books. I do agree that he isn't nearly as light as he would like people to believe, I'm just not sure he is as bad as you portrayed him. Well I hope to see you continue writing, and maybe you can do another sw/hp x-over as they seem rare.
Author's responseHello, Nekoranmakun (and I’m not even going to try to pronounce that!)
I’m glad you enjoyed the story.
I cannot see Dumbledore as anything but evil. I really can’t. The problem is, I lived the same life as Harry, (this version, not Rowling’s…everything but the rapes. My father never crossed that particular line.) and I see anyone who would allow that, or even foster it, as I’ve had him do here, as purely ‘scumbag city’.
Canon actually supports this version, as throughout, the series, he’s manipulated Harry, withheld vital information, placed all his friends at deadly risk on an annual basis, and basically convinced a teenager to commit suicide…all for his own version of the greater good.
On that topic, it took a great deal of work to push Dumbledore from merely manipulative to outright sociopathic, as he was in the last few chapters, but it was a lot of fun!
I do have another HP/SW crossover, along a slightly different line of thought. When I have a steady job and regular access to the net, I’ll start posting it.
Until then, tell your friends.

What a great, interesting, well written, GRIPPING story, with many hilarious bits. I particularly liked Dobby and his antics, brilliant! Like you I do not like the last 2 canan books. It has been suggested that JKR had a ghost writer do them and considering the many total turnarounds I tend to believe it.
Author's responseHello, pott4grager,
Thank you for your kind words. JEDI was an adventure to write, with both good and bad…(and funny. Can’t forget the funny!)
I wrote this the way I wished Rowling had written hers…because with a little research, and some character development, it could have been so much better, and I agree, she must have found the absolute worst pubescent fangirl, and given her a hundred quid to pound out both books. Nothing else makes sense.
Hopefully, I’ll have something else ready for posting soon.
