I really liked the plot of this story - even though at the beginning you said sequels are usually worse (generally, I'd agree), but I think this one has a lot more in it than It Was Only a Kiss. A lot more originality, and a more interesting plot.
I was quite disappointed when I checked the last updated date and saw it has been almost 3 years. In fact, most of your stories haven't been updated for a while.- Does this mean you have given up fanfiction? It would be a pity, I was really looking forward to the end of this story, how you would bring the characters together, or apart? I confess, I was not all that happy about the mention of a veil in the story's summary -that would have to mean Sirius falls through it, and then they don't get that happy life with Libby they could have, if the story was pre-OotP.
Do you have the end planned out already, or did the story die because you couldn't quite figure out how to go on? If you have the time, energy and enthusiasm, I would encourage you to go on with at least this one story ;) - the plot is great, it has potential in it, and I am sure that in the past 6 years you have acquired more skill and experience in writing than you had at the beginning of It Was Only a Kiss, so I am positive this could become a great story, if you feel you any inclination to continue.
If, however, you don't, but already have the plot lined out, would it be asking too much that you post that? Here, you author's page/blog, anywhere? So you don't leave us poor readers completely to our imagination regarding the end... It would mean a lot!!! Of course, the best possible is finishing the story properly.. ;)
So, as I said, I love the plot, very original, definitely worth finishing/rewriting, but please-please tell us at least the outline if you are not going to finish!
An enthusiastic reader left hanging! :(
Author's Response: I never thought of giving out the outline . . . i had complete intentions of finishing this story. I had everything plotted out (actually, i came across the notes just a few days ago while cleaning!). I feel horrible for it being three years and still unfinished. I didn't realize how busy college and life would get when I moved across the country.
I love this story, I do. Even though I sometimes want to strangle Libby, I do love her and Tristan and everyone else. Will I finish? I don't know. I don't even know if any of my original fans will still be willing to finish it out. ANd if I do finish, it will be a while before I begin updating again. I will try, I can only say that much, but if I fail I will find a place to post it.
Thanks so much for your support!
