Loten! So glad you're writing another! "Post Tenebras, Lux" has been the very best by far of the fan fictions I've read. (This is not idle flattery, I assure you). I look forward to you taking us into another wonderful story. :)

Good start to another story. Your writing is, as always, well done and engaging. I find myself drawn into the story without thinking about word choices or structure at all, which is nice and keeps me interested in the characters. I think I'm looking forward to this time-period in your idea of Hermione and Snape's characters, and the plot-line is original and has a lot of potential to bring out the best in them and the overall story-line. Overall, a solid start, I really enjoyed the last line and I hope you update shortly!
As to your final AN: I see what you mean, upon reading both of the chapters and I will message you privately.

Beautifully written, as always... The interactions between Madam Pomfrey and the portrait of Dilys have the same flavor that you see in Terry Pratchett's Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg. Never underestimate the power of dotty little old ladies who come in pairs- especially if they wear pointy hats. And Snape's reaction to Umbridge is so absolutely spot on, its scary. But in a good way. Can't wait to read more!
As to the subject of the author's note... that badly written, pale imiation (complete with wanton abuse of the common comma et al.)only serves to highlight the very real quality of your work, which is of the highest calibur.

And we are off on another epic journey provided by Loten. Great to see you in my inbox again. Gotta love how you write Snape.

Really good new fic!

Hey great starting chappie!
Sorry to hear about the plagerism, that bloody sucks :( people who steal another persons material, just don't know how to come up with material of there own. Honestly, how low can you get :( I'm glad you caught them at it.
Hope it works out for you in the end
Update really soon this looks like a really promising story! I cant wait to read the next chapter!

I'm so full of squee to see you've started a new story I just may explode! I absolutely adore your take on the beginning of OoTP from Sev and Hermione's POV. Sev's opinion of Dolores is priceless. Sounds like he's gearing up for a very tough year, hope his liver gets a chance to dry out - that is so not good.
| Sophia Cooper chapter 1 . 9/26/2011
I do like the chapter as a whole, but I don't feel like it's up to your usual standards (which admittedly were set quite high by Post Tenebras Lux). Make sure to edit before posting! This story has really great potential, but this chapter seems more like a draft then the finale product.
Keep writing :)

This is a wonderful start, I look forward to more!

*Saw new fic was up*
*Jumped for joy*
! Consider yourself glomped! And that was just because I was so excited to see this fic. Just the idea you shared on your author's page started a version of this plot in my head (I have no intention of writing it, one, because I knew yours would be better and two, because I do not have the time.) But that's how badly I could not wait to see this fic begin! I had to think of it myself.
Now, oh my goodness. This was an amazing start. I see that we might be getting more of Severus's POV this fic than in PTL. THat's fun. I like his snarky, intelligent voice. I feel so bad for him, all those medical problems that cropped up over the summer. Man, with the stress he's under, no wonder it had such a toll on his body. But now Hermione's going to be there to help-if he'll let her. Probably not much at first, but it's only year 5. They have a ways to go. (Can't wait to see what Severus think's of Hermione's handling of Umbridge.)
And finally, I think I will be reporting LerDan. I did the comparison, and at first I thought- well, the kink is pretty universal, and surly the sex-babbling dialogue is pretty basic across the board, but then I saw what you meant. The exposition was very, very similar. If it's not outright plagerism, it is treading the line and since yours was written first, she/he/they/ve should re-write it.

I am so excited to see your new story posted. Post Tenebras Lux is one of my absolute favorite stories on this site, and I think that you have incredible talent. I can't wait to read more. I will try to be patient because I know it will be worth it.
I am also very sorry that someone plagiarised your story. I hope that the site will take down the other story, and that this experience will not cause you to take down any of your work. It would truely be sad to see any of your work taken down. I have read Post Tenebras Lux several times and am sure I will again in the future. I anticipate this to be the case for Chasing the Sun as well. Keep up the amazing work, and thank you again for sharing it with us.

Another fine showing; I've been looking forward to something new from you since I read your blurbs on your bio.
I am sorry the other author wasn't mature enough to rewrite his/her work. I compared the two and it is frankly plagerized.
It makes me rethink my own writing as I get ready to publish my first work; I will be scrutinizing it. I hope I've taken inspiration from another story and could not be accused of taking ideas or words. I may get in touch with that author to discuss it with them.
Regardless, I look forward to another great story.

Plagarism is horrible. I often use ideas from things I've read when I write, but not their own words, and if it is too close an idea, I certainly ask for permission. In any case, I'm sorry. Have you contacted stop_plagarism on LJ? Are you on LJ?
This is a great, dramatic start to a story I'm already looking forward to! Many thanks!
| GypsyKylara chapter 1 . 9/26/2011
Yay! Another story from you! I have to admit, I came to your writing from your Tortall stories, but fell in love with Post Tenebras Lux and now I am completely hooked to the HG/SS pairing. I've pretty much been devouring it since you finished your last story. So I'm looking forward to this new story of yours!
It's seems like it will be pretty awesome!
I read the plagiarism. At first I thought it might be unintentional, but she really does copy some of your words exactly. That sucks.
| Book.Lover.A.F chapter 1 . 9/26/2011
I love how this story is going so far, and I've only read the first chapter! Your fanfics are always fantastic, from 'Mione and Severus to Daine and Numair. Anyways, I can't wait to see what's going to happen with this one! :)
