Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.
"Once upon a time, everything was grand... then I had to deal with people."
I recently deleted my Naruto story, because I felt it just wasn't up to par with my current writing stands - Meaning it was terrible - and have decided to entirely focus on my Harry Potter story.
Strength of Will, Power of Knowledge
Been a while, hasn't it? Ok, I have good news, but it may annoy some. I've recently decided to defer to the great minds of Dark Lord Potter to help work on my story. There's a lot of helpful people and useful criticism there, but it's not for the faint of heart.
Anyway, as such I have acquired a Beta and am currently going over the old chapters, fixing a lot of mistakes. Chapter 5 still promises to be the best chapter to date, and will be even better than I originally had thought, but it will be delayed. Hopefully not much longer, but I need to spend time fixing the first 4, and learn from those mistakes.
Really, it comes down to Quality > Quantity.
Hopefully it will be out soon, and the next ones much faster.
One of my readers was curious about the exchange rate in Strength of Will, so here it is:
1Galleon= £5 (Pound Sterling)= 7.35(USD)= €7.39 (Euro)
You can find a more complete exchange rate here,
So, in chapter 2 Harry spent roughly 20 per book, 40 in total. Now, while textbooks are, for the most part, more expensive than this in the real world, I tried to factor in the fact that there is very few other forms of information sharing in the wizarding world; thus, due to competing prices as a larger total market, the price would comparatively be lower.
Harry Potter/X-Men crossover
The premise is that the Wizarding World never went into hiding and is discriminated against by Muggles. There will be no Purebloods, and the modern term for Wizard is Magi. (Pronounced Maj-eye) The series will feature a Harry with a normal background and not the boy who lived. I haven't entirely ironed out the details, but it will definitely be interesting, and he will most likely enter the school older than in canon.
Certain elements will be different. Magical Creatures will not be a common thing, so as to make Magi seem less 'normal,' and classes like Potions and Astronomy will be removed. On the flip side, History of Magic will be a hugely important course and a tool to teach Magi of their background.
The story with have many elements to keep your attention, and will most likely not follow the core events of the series. This will most likely be a very adult series, dealing with real world issues in a fantasy setting, and strongly feature discussion on human nature. Fighting and combat may not be as stong a theme like my other story, but that doesn't mean the story will be boring. I will most likely take this in a fast paced direction.
As far as magic is concerned, I will most likely take this story into a more arcane and spiritual direction, unlike Strength of Will which is more of a technical/geeky setting. I'm doing this both to compliment the more philosophical story and to make it have a different feel from my other one. This is undecided, but it will most likely not be featuring Wands as I feel this is too structured for this type of wizarding world, and wil most likely be using a Focus/Chanting system, more details later. But, rest assured, it will be up to my standard of awesome. ;)
My ideas are still just a rough drawing, but when I can think of more on this I will update this section. Stay tuned.
Story Types I Dislike:
Die in fire, ect. You get the point.
Plot Devices I Dislike:
Ok, where to begin? - This will most likely become a large section over time.
Surprise/ Unknown Wills:
"Hey, guys, lets suddenly change Harry's personality and outlook on life because of Sirius' will, with no real justification!"
This made up conversation really sums up my attitude towards the writers of such works.
Relationships I Like
Anyway, out of most pairings I've found that this one usually has my highest approval rate. I don't know if it attracts a certain type of author, or people are driven to write her in an acceptable manner, but the story usually turns out fairy good. Note that this is not a scientific fact, just what I have personally felt.
But, as always, Marriage Contracts need not apply.
