I do love your stories, but I can't relate to the Harry in your stories...canon Harry hated anything to do with his fame and anyone who tried to profit from it. I'm sure canon Harry would have seen Hermione's writing as a betrayal of the high proportion and those who participated.
I would have taken them all to the cleaners and hung them out too dry...or at least pranked them enough so they didn't enjoy their profiteering.
- Well, obviously, I disagree.
- As Harry noted it wasn't until Hermione told him that he and his life was the inspiration for the 'Duncan Blood' character, he was completely unaware of it. Further upon reading the stories he didn't recognize the situations beyond the roughest of similarities between his own adventures and that of his fictional counterpart.
- Harry has his own concerns, and he welcomes the sucess his friend is experiencing, especially when you consider the adventures were hers at least as much as they were his.
- Besides, in this situation Harry isn't all that famous at all. Duncan Blood is.

This is a good story too... A lot better than the canon "nineteen years later"... I hope you write some more chapters to it...
Author's Response: - I've got a couple more chapters plotted out and needing to be written... The next is Neville..

come on - When will we see the next chapter? and how about marriage contracts?
IN case you can't tell, I really like your stories anc can't get enough of them.
Author's Response: - I've got about 300 words down for chapter 4 of Chance Meeting... Marriage contracts just isn't flowing right now. I've been staring at the same sentence for four days. Working on it.

This fic is amazing! Harry's psyche is a subject very little dealt with after Voldie, beyond a I've-won-and-will-have-a-cry-over-all-the-dead-people-and-isn't-life-wonderful.
You present him in a very understandable and sympathetic light. Tracy and Daphne are also great, though really I just like it when Harry gets together with the little guys. So:
Language Competency: 10
Pace (ie not boring, but well explained): 10
I think this is the 5th time I have ever given a perfect 10 (I have been reading avidly for a year, and have managed about 500 fics, so that is saying something).
This reads like a real novel, and a good one too. Keep it up!
Author's Response: - Thanks, but I think you over estimate the story... It's just a silly little bit of fluff I'm using to cleanse the palete between chapters of my longer stories...

So, any more chapters forthcoming? Great one by the way!
Author's Response: - Unlike most of my stories, I haven't really plotted this one out... Right now, I'm responding to the positive reaction of readers to a one shot... Anyway, as of right now, I'm planning for this to run at least 9 chapters. Unless I start repeating myself.

fantastic new chapter, It's great to see a different pairing, I think I would gouge out my eyes if I had to read another Harry/Ginny or Harry/Hermione fic...
Author's Response: Thank you. I've got a longer story in the planning stages for Padma, but I've got to finish a story or three first...

Great chapter mate, I like the talk with Daphne and Tracey. I like how Daphne reacted to Tracey and Harry. Oh I like that Tracey got married to Harry. :D
PLEASE update soon.
Author's Response: Thank you. The next chapter: Daphne... The way the story is going to go, is the title character of each chapter gets to tell their story (more or less) to the title character of the next chapter...

That's awesome (and.. well not so awesome..) but very true! Not many include that but just assume he would go back to being "normal" from being a warrior for an extended period of time, it changes you. Not to mention that the whole Ginny wanting fame and fortune being just so true, I mean that's what he was to her from the start (her hero)
Anyway, great stuff! Really looking forward to more if you write more on this story, or other stories you write :-)
Author's Response: Thank you.

Amen, PTSD (and I've had to help friends with it) is a real concern for those who have seen what our men and women (not boys and girls) have seen. Next time you talk to (write, e-mail, anything) Mike, give him a SEMPER FI from a (not so old) Texas volunteer fireman. Sadly, I can't serve now, age and stuff, wouldn't make the cut, but I'll support those who do. OOH RAH!
Author's Response: - Message relayed. Since he's found out I attempt to write fan fiction, Mike calls me a girl. I just point out that this girl could kick his ass... Then we drink.

You know, I saw this on ficwad, and I just realized I never put up a review for it there. This is a great start to a story. Admittedly, it does work as a stand alone, but I would rather see it evolve.
Of course, I am always partial to a good Harry/fem!Slytherin story, because they tend to bring the least baggage from cannon. This means the author has more room to craft an interesting character on their own and this is something you do very well.
Thank you for sharing.
Author's Response: I intend to extend it a bit, two person vigenetts as it were. Harry and Tracey, Tracey and Daphne, Daphne and Draco and so on, until it wraps around to Harry again...
