- Very nice one-shot! I hope you have a full length fic coming soon. I've missed you!
Author's responseHeya TimeMage
I’m happy you liked. My next multi-chapter will be either: A) A Boy Named Harry, B) Stone Cold, C) Dude, You Like, Seriously Need Some Sun! D) One Tin Soldier, or E) Taking Matters Into My Own Hands. Either way, I’ll be posting more as I can.
(#) jadesabrexiv 2012-06-12That was a great mix of Romeo and Juliet with the HP world. I loved it.
Can I steal that quote that the bottom, the one about the Jean Jane issue? It makes sense.
Author's responseHeya Jade.
I thought it would be rather apropos, given that most of these challenges are an attempt to make a wholly unworkable ship…workable. And as Admiral Kirk said; “It had the benefit of not having been tied before.”
As for Jane/Jean, go right ahead. I swiped it in the first place.
- Good one. I tend to prefer the "kill them all" solution for marriage law fics, but this is a nice alternative.
Author's responseThank you, Ken. The ‘kill them all’ thing was done in ‘The Obligatory Marriage Law’ by Luan Mao. Rather disturbing, but a good read all the same.
- Now that's what I like to see...... Harry and Hermione putting Fudge, Malfoy and their idiot followers in their place! Many thanks for writing this! :)
Author's responseHeya Teresa. Glad you liked. I actually wrote this just after that pile of…typing called HBP came out and the ‘Muggleborne Marriage Law’ was introduced. So many of those stories end up in submission, but really, can you see either Harry or Hermione meekly accepting that incompetent buffoon’s judgment. I have another in the works along the same lines, but it’s barely in the block-out stage. Just for fun, It’s called; “Hormonal’.
Till the next time.
(#) Destroyerdrt 2012-06-12I do not this JKR had the same proofreader or editor for her books, I believe that the one that did the 5th book did the one that had the Jean name for Hermione and they thought it was wrong also that is one way to explain how the time and date errors happened and that JKR took the blame. Great chapter and story by the way.
Author's responseHey Destroyer
Personally, I think she had a ghost writer do books six and seven. Inasmuch as canon is concerned, I don’t know if Hermione’s name was ever printed. I do recall her fumbling during an interview before Umbridge made her toad like intro, and saying Hermione’s name was Jane, and then I read about the name change after the fifth book was released. One of many inconsistencies. ‘Course, that’s what makes Fanfic so much fun to write.
Glad you liked the show.
- Very nice blend there of Shakespeare's methods (R&J especially) with the HP world (with her first name, you know Hermione would have a fondness for the Bard). It's a more subtle solution than the "kill all the idiot Purebloods" approach but still removes them fully from power.
Author's responseHeya Cat!
As I told Teresa, the 'Muggleborne Marriage Law' is usually a way for authors to force Hermione to marry some Death Eater or other (usually the ferret). This way, she and Harry win, Fudge looks like an ass and the Deeters end up poor.
(#) jabarber69 2013-07-16okay at first I was going to tear you a new one or maybe just say harry and hermione took the wimp way out....I would of told the geezergamot to go fuck itself and declare war on the ministry with all the muggleborns in the country it would be a short war.....
but then you went and totally surprised me when they went into the chamber and revived them, wasnt expecting that one....
Author's responseHeya Jabarber!
Yeah, one of the problems with the marriage law is that it allows for wholly unsupportable pairings to be created, usually Hermione and either Draco, Snape or (shudder) Lucius. These pairings exist wholly in to support the notions that the characters are at all like the actors who portray them. I have seen only a very few that refuse to allow this sort of nonsense. Among them, Ishtar’s ‘Turnabout is Fair Play being where I swiped the legalese, of course, ‘Fuck the Marriage Law’, by Kielala and ‘The Obligatory Marriage Law’ by Luan Mau. Although that one is nearly psychotic!
I decided early on to use a rather Shakespearian twist, and so came up with my solution. In one move, it discredited Fudge, the proposed law and as a side effect, restructured the entire government with a functioning brain at the helm. Glad you liked it, and especially glad you read it through before commenting.
