How do you come up with these things? I guess as much as people like gold they don't want their body to turn into it.
Author's Response: I have absofrigginlutely no idea how I came up with this, other than the prompt for the challenge it was for was crazy and difficult to work with. It just...sounded like a weird wizard disease and I ran with it. Thanks for reading!
What happened to the griffin?
Well, I imagine they would get what they needed from it and then do what they could to preserve and perpetuate the species. Luna, I think, would be giddy to have a chance to study a creature thought to be extinct. Or, maybe, they would take it back where they James found it and then show the world what Gryffindor had considered his 'treasure'.
Though it's an odd piece and actually kind of terrible (the prompts in the challenge for which this was written were terrible, and all the participants struggled to a degree), I think this was my first 'caper' fic, and it was fun while I was writing it. Thanks for reading/reviewing. :)
Well, Vindication was so good I figured the wet of your fics couldn't be half bad and I wasn't disappointed. This was a really great story and I'm glad I understood all the references to your first fic. It ended a bit abruptly but overall I'm extremely impressed. I can't wait to read more from you!
Thank you. this was written for one of the most beastly challenges in which I've ever participated, so I'm glad it made sense at all, to be honest. Thanks for reading and reviewing. It really makes my day. :D
Quite good and imaginative. Just a very minor point, that the characters are not quite totally immersed in the magical world. Lots of muggle references that Harry's lot would not understand.
My premise for the 'Muggle' objects is that, since the story is set past 2040, by that time, wizards have adapted Muggle objects like cell phones to operate on magic. It's not outlandish at all, considering the wizarding world's new view on Muggle-borns and Muggle relations. Plus, with men like Arthur Weasley in high places in the Ministry, Muggle methods would be looked at to augment the magical world and make the Ministry a more efficient entity. I didn't include any of this back story because the nature of the contest for which this was written really didn't allow for much by the way of back story. I hope this clears some of that up. :)
Thanks for reading and reviewing, and have a great day!
Fantastic beasts & where to find them?- _ I find this new story of yrs (The Vindication.. was the 1st & I finished it at 4am last night!) well worth exploring. I'm expecting treasure at the end of the rainbow...
I'm glad to see you're taking a stroll through my author page. I do that myself from time to time with writers I like. :)
This one was for the Gauntlet, which is where they gave me ten random locations, and I had to fit them all in my story. I drug poor James all across the planet (or at least Africa/Europe). I'm glad to see that you enjoy the story. :)
Excellent story so far, but I'm confused by the following sentence:
The barman led him to his rental, left him with a, and Apparated back downstairs.
Author's Response: Ah, thanks for the heads up about the typo. It happens (too often, I'm afraid). It should be 'left him with a key.' I'll get that fixed, and thank you so much for reading.
