(#) Chrispy1000000 2008-03-30Just finished up to this point, I really like it.
Quick question: What happens to Ron, now that he's had a silver knife coated with the blood of a werewolf under his skin? Best case scenario, the silver killed the curse in the blood, it merely has to be removed. Regular case, he's a werewolf. Worst case, he's a werewolf with chronic pain, and a short life expectancy.
Author's responseThe blood would be mostly negated by the silver, but makes the wound more difficult to heal. Hence Ron still being on potions a few weeks after the injury. I would think werewolf saliva would be more infectious than blood, as the curse is passed on by a bite
(#) FenrisWolf 2008-03-30I love the overall story, but am endlessly frustrated by the short chapters, especially the ones like this where pretty much all that happens is window dressing for future chapters. All the scenes were static; The Old Ones discuss the traitors, but aside from the one self-exile no action is taken. The Weasleys discuss matters on the train, but no action is forthcoming. Harry and Hermione arrive on the island, and the chapter ends. Very frustrating. I love the originality of your work, but sometimes the pacing leaves a lot to be desired.
- Damn, Remus is dead. I thought you might be pulling a swifty and killing Ron instead. Poignant last few words from the werewolf.
I like the idea of Percy being jolted out of his own Ministry ambition and instead making a 'real difference'. He's a Weasley, after all.
Nice to think of Harry and Hermione doing some intense cuddling on their lonesome on the island! :-)
- You actually managed to make me feel sorry for Pansy. A little, at least. Making Pansy and Draco's wedding day be just before Draco has to leave for school is brilliant - overstressed from wedding preparations and time-pressured to "consummate," they won't have time for much affection, or to plot...
