    1/5 for low length. Story wise its solid if a bit boring. If word count increases, rating will increase.
     
  2. Has lots of potential, and while I do like it when authors use some standard spells for combat in origional ways, banishing a persons head is a bit of a streach for me. If author doesn't rush the plot, and develops the characters well, I give it 3/5

    xcel: You previously said that it was 1/5 for the use of 4th year spells in a way that, despite everyone else seeming to agree is realistic, you feel is stupid.

    Now you say its 1/5 for low length? You're supposed to rate on quality. Not quanitity. Length is merely an indication of how long a fic has been in the process of getting written for. Would you rate a fic with 3 chapters that 60K words long in total, but has poor style, poor structure, poor grammar, no plot, and no characterisation as better than a fic with 10 chapters, thats a total of 30K, but flows well, has a detailed and well thought out plot, has well developed characters and has few to no spelling and grammar errors?

    Its working now.

    Nice enough story. Hope you can give a good enough explanation for Hermione out of all people telling them to kill. I find it a bit difficult to reconcile with a girl who wants to save house-elves.

    And fouth year old spells can get through once, but for next fight use something more powerful. You know a simple protego goes a long way against those. Also banishing a head was....... was his legs tied down or something? Why didn't the goddamn body follow?

    3/5 just because the end of second chapter seems to be taking the story to better places.
