    A user expressed these points in the convo about Scryer on reddit:

    (quote below)
    There's no way to edit your search while at the result page for example. Touch input isn't supported properly, there is no "OR" option for Genre or characters (not that FFN or Ao3 have one) and I find the layout/color palette too sleek.
    (end quote)

    I do not necessarily agree that those are critical, just wanted to forward the feedback

    FWIW, this is supported with "Included {Categories, Characters}"

    Relationship search is now available. Please post any quirks you find.

    Currently it only allows for exact matches, that is, Harry/Fleur matches exactly Harry/Fleur, not Harry/Fleur/Hermione.

    Very nice. One problem, if you change fandom it still references HP characters for the relationship search. If the feature is only meant to cover HP related fiction then maybe disable it if the fandom is not set to HP?

    Hmm, I must have broken that when making some other changes, it's working now.

    Scryer now has auth via DLP. If you don't have an account, it's created. Otherwise it matches based on email address and links your account.

    If you manage to create two accounts, let me know and I can merge them. I'll have a username change and a more standard "account link" flow done here soon.

    @Lord Ravenclaw so I was searching for stories and I noticed that when you have the option to choose the required characters, there are two options named "Albus D."

    So I was searching for stories that had "Harry P." as well and I noticed that the first Albus D. option had no results but stories come up when you use the second Albus D. option.

    tl;dr, There are 2 choices for Dumbledore. You should probably get rid of one of them.

    There's also five OC choices.

    The relationships option also seems to be a bit bugged. It works alright when I set up a new search, but if I save it and try to open it again it gives out an error 500.

    First off, thanks for building this. Much love.

    Small request: would be great to be able to filter out fics we’ve already seen/clicked on. Scryer already keeps track of that, shown with the eye icon - would like to just look for new fics.

    Thanks again for putting this together.

    Good Evening...

    I'm a long-time DLP lurker, brand spanking new member though. Why?

    'Cause I love Scryer and was chatting with a bunch of Merlin fans, and we were all lamenting the fact we can't search in Scryer for fics. So I asked folks... "has anyone actually asked if they could index Merlin for Scryer?", and the answer seemed to be "no, I don't think so."

    So here I go -- would you be so kind as to index Merlin so that we could do searches on it? I'd be oh so grateful.

    Many thanks for all your hard effort!

    Should be indexed in ~2-3 hours. It'll appear in the "Fandoms" list once it's completely indexed.

    I take that back, it showed up anyways. *shrug* that's a bug, but it'll start indexing in 30 mins.
