Hey it's been quite a while since you last updated & I wonder if you will finishing this story. I have felt a type of kinship with your writing from the beginning. It is entertaining and touching and not something with which a male writer is often gifted. I think this is one of most favorite stories and certainly one that encouraged me to read 'next generation' stories by others. None have reached the level of respect I have for your gift of expression. I hope you will finish this tale, but if not, I hope you will continue to seek some type of creative pursuit as you are clearly talented in the written word.
This story is finished in it's entirity at FanFiction.net I got tired of dealing with the byzantine modding on this site, I don't have the time nor the energy. I was able to post several chapters in a row then the two mods I was working with got run off and I could not find a new one...just rejection by a self important mod who felt she needed to censor my words to my readers twice because I was too negative towards this website. On Fanfiction I not only have Albus and YptB posted in it's entirely I also have eleven chapters of the sequel and nearly thirty others and that number is growing. Thankyou for your interest but I just can't beat my head against this wall anymore I don't have it in me.
This sounds intriguing. I hope you continue the story. I am a little confused about the third person narrative being injected with a sudden first person view. Are we Hermione? Or is this a narrative?
Author's Response: Thank you for your compliment! In response to your question, I tried to format it the best that I can the way JK Rowling does it. For example, in the Harry Potter books, she doesn't use "I" with Harry, but rather she tells the story through Harry without going into first person. Yes, this story is in Hermione's point of view, but it's not in first person. If I haven't answered your question thoroughly enough, just let me know.
Harry Potter had seen death - a lot of death. Friends had passed in his lifetime, more so than any one person should ever experience, but how much is too much, even for the Chosen One?
Ron Weasley is dead, leaving behind his wife and his best mate. How can these two cope with their Trio being cut down to two? And when danger lurks in the shadows, can they find the strength to fight for one another?
It has been a long while since I've read a story on Mugglenet (mostly becuz it takes so long for updates to be posted), but I'm glad I took the time to read yours. You write well and your characters' personalities are very believable as the drama plays out. I find many scenes to be touching and I like stories that provoke my emotions (w/o bludgeoning me). I can feel and understand Harry's and Hermione's loss, and I can feel similarly for Ginny's loss and anger as well. You have a gift for writing in this style. I hope it won't be too long before your next update, but then I doubt I'll notice since I only check Mugglenet every couple of weeks or so. But I've made sure to jot down the title and your author name so I won't forget to to check for it.
Hello there. :D
I'm glad I could spin a tale that can keep you back on MNFF. No one's ever said that before, so yay for that. If you favorite the story and set your Account Settings to send you email when your favorites are updated, you'll get an email and a link when this story is updated if you're interested in that as compared to lurking in the Most Recent. That's how I keep track of stuff I'm reading.
Anyway, I suppose the fact that the story seems real makes my day. Harmony is my favourite ship, but I also realise that most stories in this category are not very good or not very likely. I wanted to craft one that, when you read it, you're not left with the aura of disbelief. If I can do that, then I will have done what I set out to do.
Thanks for reviewing. It's a gift to get a review that is concise and actually contains details, so just so you know, it's well-appreciated.
Thank you for finally updating! I was beginning to wonder if you perhaps decided to abandon it. I saw you posting other stories and thought you'd written yourself into a corner you were unable to write out of.
I think you did a good job of describing Harry's anxiety of being trapped. I've had claustrophobic episodes (like in a closed MRI) and it is a bit unsettling if not irrational. Of course being buried alive certainly adds to the panic!
I do still enjoy your style of writing. It evokes emotional reactions in me that few stories and writers do. I think I like the underlying sadness that pervades your tale which is borne of the love and caring of two characters who've experienced much tragedy in their lives. One can only hope they find their way, forgive themselves, leave their guilt behind, and embrace the love that they seem to deny themselves.
Again, this is one of my favorite stories and I enjoy reading it. I hope you will take a little less time to update in the future. Oh, I did notice a few errors like a missing word or two, but overall you edited it well enough.
I will continue to keep an eye out for new posts of this story. Keep up the good work!
I think a few of my MNFF friends would never allow me to abandon this story, especially considering how close it is to being done. But, as you said, I had indeed written myself into a corner once I figured out that my escape plan for Harry that I had concocted ages ago wasn't going to work. I got myself a bit of plot help from MNFF's finest writers (yay!), and they put me back on track.
Just a couple more chapters to go! Thanks for hanging in there. Now that no one has to escape any weird prisons without a wand, the rest should be far simpler and, therefore, quicker with the updating.
