- But... but... How do you expect to get people to pay $17 for the hardcover edition if it's only two pages long? And the movie rights? No, no, no, this just will not do. Sensible actions get things done too quickly and efficiently. Take this back to the drawing board and replace it with convoluted plots and bumbling incompetence, then we'll talk.
Author's responseUmmm, great marketing? Hell, Ron Popiel can sell ice to the Eskimo’s. Let him try.
As for convoluted plots and bumbling incompetence, I think Rowling has given us enough of that to last any three lifetimes.
By the way, I really loved your story; ‘Something like your family’. I have one in the works, called ‘What if Hermione Had Died?’
- Dumbles would not have liked that. Definitely not for the greater good.
Good to see your still kicking around. Cheers.
Author's responseHeya Zamia!
It’s just a little something I’d been kicking around. After all, Frank was supposed to have been a soldier, right?
As for Dumbley, yeah, you’re right. H’d prolly grab a time turner and go back to make sure Voldy escaped. Greater good ‘n all, y’know!
- -laughs wickedly- Beautiful and I love the way that would've spiked things before Fourth Year. Methinks that would've changed a lot and that Albus would be most taken aback. If Barty, Jr. had already been set on his path, things could get real interesting when the Cup portkeys him to an empty graveyard.
Author's responseHeya Cat!
Dunno, man. If he was serious, I’m sure he could have found a way back. It just would have been harder. On the other hand...
Barty: Yeah, that would have been funny.
“Harry? Where are we?”
“Like I’m supposed to know? That was only my second portkety ride!”
“Yeah, you’re right. OK, how do we get back?”
“How about the knight bus?”
“Do we have to?”
“Well, unless you wanna hitch-hike all the way to Scotland…”
