The.Grey.Hunter is an avid reader of Harry Potter fanfiction. He is also tinkering with a few story ideas that may one day be posted. He lives in scenic splendor in Utah; the rest of you can eat your hearts out.
His favorite 'ship is HP with anybody but GW. He respects and admires JKR's phenomenal imagination and utterly deplores her dreadful sense of relationships. In general, he thinks RW is redeemable, but seldom worth the effort. GW is the irretrievably damaged product of a delusional control freak mother and genial but spineless father. BW and CW are in dangerous occupations in reaction against the treacly goo spread by MW and unopposed by AW. FW and GW are character masterpieces and far and away the best of the Ws.
His view is that HP is in a war and the sooner he figures that out, the longer he lives and the fewer others die. If he writes any serious fanfiction, his HP won't be whining that he has to "become a murderer" in order to live; rather, he'll be licking his chops with blood in his eye, just itching for his shot at the title. He is a Gryffindor, but don't be surprised to find him growing in unexpected directions. Remember his conversation with the Sorting Hat at his Sorting.
Lastly, The.Grey.Hunter doesn't own HP, cosmic calamity though that be. That said, he thinks the disclaimers in fanfiction stories might possibly necessary, because there are far, far too many lawyers in the world. Nevertheless, most are overblown repetitions of crap only the feeble-minded need be told.
About reviews: Like other fanfic writers, what The.Grey.Hunter writes for his own amusement. If you like it, cool, and feel free to review. If you find weaknesses, cool, and feel free to point them out. But don't ask for your money back; none is being made. Be civil. The.Grey.Hunter doesn't mind criticism and he expects a lot because Sturgeon's Law is very conservative with respect to fanfiction. Naturally, The.Grey.Hunter seeks to be in the .1 per cent that is the exception, but the odds are against him. The.Grey.Hunter asks only that you be polite as you skin him alive.
As for author's notes--The.Grey.Hunter is not a real fan of them. If he does his job, you won't need them. If he doesn't, author's notes are a poor compensation for asking you to read dreck so poorly written it requires author's notes to explain it. Lame, really. The exception will be to acknowledge the contributions of betas and others who have helped him with the story.
Have fun. Write or review if you like. The.Grey.Hunter'll read 'em all. He might even answer some.
