Author has written 14 stories for Harry Potter.
I saw the following quote accredited to Professor Brian Cox and thought it applied perfectly to fan fiction too.
"The problem with today's word is that everyone believes they have the right to express their opinion AND have others listen to it.
The correct statement of individual rights is that everyone has the right to an opinion, but crucially, that opinion can be roundly ignored and even made fun of, particularly if it is demonstratively nonsense."
I shall try and remember this the next time I receive a foul and abusive message telling me that a certain fictional character would never act the way I just wrote them, therefore I must be insane, stupid, shot at dawn, etc. etc. etc...
'Takin' the Piss'
I took this story down for two reasons. The first one being I thought I was finished posting on the net and didn't want to leave an incomplete story just sitting there. The second reason should have been foreseen by me. My original intention with this was just to 'touch-up' KiP, fixing grammar issues and smoothing out certain parts that jarred in the story. The trouble is that the author who wrote Harry Crow is practically a different person to the RobSt who penned Knowledge is Power six years ago. I found myself rewriting more and more of each chapter as the story progressed, and this rewriting was taking me nearly as much time as it does to write an original chapter.
The project is not dead and buried, just shelved until I run out of ideas for new stories - so hopefully it won't be making a reappearance for a long while yet!
