Hello to my faithful fans! All two of you. I haven't died, but I have been a very bad author what with not writing anything for months, losing the link to the translated version of "HP!" someone so kindly, umm, translated, and ignoring my reviews. Truth is, I've been avoiding MNFF, which has a lot to do with the embarassing nature of some of my reviews of others' work, and also the main site itself, MuggleNet. I plan to write LOTS more, cleaning up JKR's loose ends, so keep an eye out. If you want to get in touch, I'm active on LJ, so please, please comment to my journal. DON't email me.
What with DH, a lot of my views on HP have changed. It will probably effect my stories, and it's alreadly effected my profile, as you can see. I hope the rough spot I'm going through with canon will only change my writing in fanon for the better. Keep an eye out! But probably NOT in R/T, okay?
Summary: WARNING! This story contains a jingle-bell antler headband, a shower of potatoes, boy/girl mushiness, underwear karaoke, family trouble, an excessively adorable werewolf, death, the song "Werewolves of London," betrayal, and the word 'Jordan' five times in a row near the beginning of chapter seven.
Twenty-one years after Voldemort's defeat, five fourth-years are faced with a new threat. Will all of the five stay true to the light side? Will they all emerge whole in the end? Will Jordan Potter ever get a life? You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll gasp, you'll sigh! Part one in a trilogy!
Well, after much deliberation and consideration, I've decided to submit my future-gen trilogy! This particular installment is three years old, so it's definitely different from my current writing style, but I'm quite fond of the characters.
DH is disregarded. It's a total coincidence that one of the main characters is named Ted Lupin.
Starring Quicksilver Quills 2008 Best Male Original Character runner-up Jordan Potter, Best Female Original Character nominees Ivy Potter, Haley Potter, and Emma Weasley, and Best Male Original Character nominee Ted Lupin!
Five times nominated (once for each member of Potter's Pentagon!) for the Best Post-Hogwarts story in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards, and nominated for Best Post-Hogwarts story in the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Awards...
Well, well. This is certaintyly vastly different from yur other works. you konw, I've always been a huge fan of yours, so I was very interested in what yu were going to do with a genre such as next--gen.
Almost by definition, next-gen fics are cliched and dare I say, boring. I was hopeful as soon as I saw that you had chosen NOT to name Harry and Ginny's children after someone who had died in the second war. But then- well...
Harry and Malfoy's children had become friends. The "sextet" was neatly paired up- unlikely, especially since at least one or two of them would have died in the second war. And worst of all- a new Dark wizard to rival Voldemort? Draco? I'm sorry, but his magical powers just do not measure up against Voldy or even Snape.
Now I know you wrote this a few years ago, and nobody's what you'd call brilliant at twelve or thirteen. But I do hope you just had a rough start, and that it gets better. You have some rather intersting charcters here- I'd like to see what you can do with them.
Author's Response: HPwizzard-- I totally understand. I wrote this story before I even knew fanfiction existed, and I got too used to it to it to make plot changes. Ohhh, yeah-- and Draco definitely does not rival Voldemort. He\'s more of a... wannabe than anything else. But thank you for the criticism... and I do think it gets better, even if it is rather cliched and predictable!
Giant spiders, malevolent bats, wizard scouts...werewolves. Tonks finds life in Hogsmeade far from simple, while Remus discovers having a partner in touch with her inner wolf complicates his mission and his heart.
Well, you writing is as flawless as ever. ;D I'm very eager to see what you do with DH... because after that plotline, the only thing that will get me to like R/T again is one of your stories.
Author's Response: Honestly, without giving away spoilers, I thought while reading that \"Jo didn\'t think enough about secondary characterization. Tonks and Remus always walked onstage, told Harry things, and then exited stage left. They weren\'t her main characters, so Jo didn\'t show their lives, but I will!\" :D (humble as ever)
