Link: Story may be found either on The Quidditch Pitch or Fanfiction.net This is finished, but I'd love to see what a forum like this has to say about it...you know, somewhere where people won't be going "it wuz good but did u hav 2 make snape so meen and kil so many pplz?!!" or "im so glad u didn't relly hurt colin even tho we now hes gonna die lulz!" The grown-up reviews I've gotten from grown-ups have been fairly good, however, and I'm quite confident in my work and that it can stand up to some real reading. On the other hand, I have NO problem with concrit, and welcome it heartily. I'm halfway into the second novel of this trilogy...if I'm building on a foundation with holes in it, I'd sure as hell like to know. Only caveat is that I DID stick quite rigorously to DH canon. Yes, I went beyond it, but only where openings were given. If she said it, I kept it. Which means that if you think it's stupid that no one said anything when Ginny and Cho decided to have their little snit at each other hours before battle, why Voldemort didn't close the school if the DA was so active, or how Snape managed to hide that he'd lost the entire 7th year by the end of it (or just start horribly torturing the youngest one at a time as hostages until they came out again)....well, you may address THOSE kinds of concrit statements to JKR. Not that she'll effin' listen. Checked by Minion, June 9, 2013 The story isn't available on The Quidditch Pitch anymore.
