1st November, 2007: No, as a point of fact, I'm not dead! And neither is HPMM. I'm currently in the process of rewriting (again) HPMM, so expect some fairly major content changes...and then, UPDATES!


A massive thanks to Ham, Luna, Zayne and ladylarna for porting my old ff.net reviews over here so I didn't lose them all - you guys seriously rock! Although I think Ham-man at least had an ulterior motive...

Just out of curiosity, Charles, who does your Beta work? If it's you, fair enough, but if it's another, they should be sacked. I've found half a dozen errors already...

Good content though, I like your idea of bringing Flamel into it - and actually, now that I think about it, it's entirely possible JK will do the same. We've never actually been told he is dead...only that he would age and die normally. From my understanding that doesn't happen in a week.

Onward, dear friends!

Dun-dun-DUN!!! The plot thickens...

Doing well so far, mate - although it takes a bit of dedication to wade through all the assorted angst/anti-angst. Probably just me, though - I've never been much of a fan of endless monologue. Trust me, it's not just you. ;)

Once more unto the breach, dear friends!

LOL...Ginny's a good girl. We all believe her. Why wouldn't we? ;)

We'll see how good I am later.

Dun-dun-DUN! Looks pretty damn good so far, mate.

Looking good so far, mate. The only real inconsistancy I can find is that 'Merlin' was actually a title, refering to the upper-councils of Druids. Taliesin and Myrddin were both 'High Merlin' at some point or another.

Anyway, that's the only nit-pick I have. Still reckon it's Perce!

Author's Response:

True Merlin was a title, and very good on recognizing Taliesin as another who carried that title.  However Myrddin Emrys was the one before Taliesin and his name was passed down to Taliesin wehn Myrddin left for Bardesy Isl and Clas Myrddin.

It was the French who change the name to Merlin due to pronunciation having it sound like Merdin which based off of merde, well...  that didn\'t go over well, so the spelling was changed.

He he he...none of them have the slightest clue...

I resent the twit saying you need a Beta, though. Firstly, there's a spelling mistake...and what am I, chopped liver?

A thoroughly amusing story, I must say. I particularly like your Dudley - he's not so OOC that he's unbelieveable, and I think in this setting that's quite an achievement. Kudos!

Author's Response:

Thank you so much!  I must have missed your review in that long, horrible break I had to take from writing.  My apologies.

I'm glad you are enjoying Dudley.  I worried that he was too far out there.  He is how I would hope he could be.

Thanks again.  I've posted chapter 8 and already have chapter 9 ready to post by the end of the week. I hope you enjoy them as well.
