Chapter: (XII) - 'The Hanged Man'

Well, after mainlining seven chapters, I have come to the conclusion that this fic is absolutely genius in the making! Ever since the introduction of the Felix Felicis in the Potterverse, I've known that something with such incredible benefits was sure to come with equally powerful downfalls, and weaving a story around that is excellent.

Your syntax and vocabulary selection are well played and easy to follow, which lends this fic to addictive reading, such as staying up until six in the morning, reading like there's nothing you'd rather do...like me, lol.

Awesome story, looking forward to the next installment!

Author's Response:

Thanks for the review. I enjoyed thinking up a backstory for Felix Felicis for this story, because I like to imagine that, if technology is like magic, then in some way magic must also be like technology - spells and potions have to be developed and tested and evolved over time. To wit, the magic in the Potterverse doesn't just work like magic, and that's one of the things I find so interesting about it. I read in the early days in the fandom a couple of stories that dealt with magic in a more technical way, like it was more a set of tools rather than any kind of mystical dogma, and ever since then I try to include that kind of mindset into my stories.

But as for the rest of the story... the seventh chapter is the end. If there's anything more to be said about this view of the universe, it's not for me to say. Sorry about that. But, you know, I have a couple of other stories uploaded here...
