Wow, simply.. wow!
Well, maybe not simply, that wouldn't quite do this chapter justice.
I stumbled upon this per coincidence, but so far it's the best I've read here. It's a theme I only thought about, and written far better than I ever could.. I mean, a giant hurling an axe at a chopper? Not to mention the details, which make it quite convincing.
Congratulations, and thanks for the story!
Hehe, does that qualify for a Charlie Foxtrot?
Liked it very much again, so I'm going to have to choose the second part over sleep..
One thing though, it seemed to me things concerning magic kept in-canon, is there an in-story explanation, why portkeys take so long in the making?
I quite enjoyed it again, although I had the feeling you got a little caught up with the naval battle in the last part. But it's easy to talk from the backseat, there were a lot of ships to take care of^^
The clash of magic and technology/magic also wasn't as clear as before, but I guess that was unavoidable in a story at/over sea-level. Maybe the squid or one of his relatives will make a cameo in another story? ;)
Overall it was still very good and fun to read, and I'm looking forward to reading Semiautomagic. Thanks again!
