- Adorable chapter, well-thought out and, IMO, very In-character for Harry.
Author's responseHarry is very naive. He is wry and sarcastic, but lacks the worldly wisdom to apply it. He will learn that through the story. Thanks for your compliments. I look forward to the next updates of your stories. Jim
(#) whatareyouevensaying 2006-06-03I'm really enjoying this story. The point of view bothered me for the first couple of chapters, but now I don't even notice. More than anything else, I like how ignorant Harry is. A close second is the way you've handled Bill's character. Keep up the good work!
Author's responseGlad you were able to get past the unusual pov. Harry doesn't have any life experiences to draw from. Bill's trying to help him understand about living. Jim
(#) Meteoricshipyards 2006-06-09This is enjoyable. I like Harry's sudden realization at the end that he may have insulted the woman by leaving the money.
Liked the clothes removing spell; almost used it, but couldn't really fit it into my story :-)
Looking forward to more (I read your note that said there will be a delay, but that doesn't stop me from keeping this near the top of the "watch for new updates" list)
Thanks for writing it.
Author's responseThanks for the review. Really enjoy your story (how about an update). I squeezed in an irregular update to my other story and hope to do the same for this one. Jim
- Very nice chapter again, but I have to say the MILF part was just slightly disturbing. Nice job on the idea of runes syphoning off power, I loved that idea. As far as apparation, much better than 'traditional' fics; I enjoy how your Harry is human and thus makes lots of mistakes as well as his niavetity (sp?). A very believable character and chapter. Keep up the good work.
Just one little question: Can the glasses just see runes or do they see all magic? If it's the latter, wouldn't that be a problem in a really heavily warded and guarded place? I mean, compare it to looking into a camp surrounded by a bunch of floodlights...If all you can see is the individual runes, it wouldn't be so bad, just like glowing writing everywhere, but magic in general would nullify the practical use when you needed it most (high density magic areas from the traps and wards). Hopefully this makes sense and you can answer my question.
Author's responseTechnically they see all magic, which is why Bill says to never turn it on during a duel. Runic fields are weaker than a direct spell which is a more concentrated form of magic. I hope that makes sense. In areas of heavy wards it can be a liability, and has to be used sparingly without causing a headache. Which is why cursebreakers moving in tombs go very slow and doublecheck their work - at least the ones that are still alive do. :)
