Review:AIP Alexander says:
Hey I've been debating my decision to write this review for a while now. I think you are an awesome writer and you have come out writing in an angle that's pretty much completely new to this site, although i have to admit i envy you. I envy you because just before you started writing this story, i had worked on an outline for a story very similar to yours, differing maybe on a few aspects, and now having read your story i have put both my current fan fiction and the one i wanted to write on hold while i watch your story play out. My reason to doing this is that i originally wanted to write the most creative and innovative story possible, and by finding your story so similar to the one i was hoping to start I'm debating as to whether or not i should write it. This brings me to the original purpose of this review. The last chapter you made a remark about Harry being a virgin (I appreciate how you brought it up, it was extremely funny and a great tension breaker) and i was wondering how you would refer to Ginny. I know it is highly improbable that she would still be a virgin since she has spent the last three years dating Ernie, but we (readers) still have to take the raping incident into account when trying to figure out how you are going to approach the subject. My concerns about this issue stems from the amount of Harry/Ginny fans out their and regardless of the circumstances they might find themselves in the story most readers are hoping that Harry and Ginny's first time is with each other. I write about this knowing full well that you are entitled to decide the outcome of your own story but i would hate the idea that you would lose potential readers (which has happened to several great stories) by having Ginny having sex with Ernie when you have the potential of writing one of the best (and most original) stories on the site. Regardless of what you decide I am eager to see the outcome of your story. Hope this finds you well.

Author's Response: Hi AIP,

First, let me apologise for stealing your thunder! I've read many great stories on this site and on others, and there are several themes in mine that overlap those. I think there are so many fanfics out there now that overlap of varying degrees is inevitable. This story is my vision (one of several different outcomes) of what followed the war, and if yours follows a similar script, all I can say is 'great minds think alike';) I won't be offended if you publish something close to mine, and I don't think others' feelings about similarities in our stories should concern you. If you have a great story to tell, even if it is very similar tosomeone else's, you should put it out there for others to enjoy!

Regarding the 'Ginny/Others Sex' thing, I am not touching it in this story (let sleeping dogs lie for the moment), but I am considering using it in a sequal (probably not as a main thread, though). Same is true with the Williams family and the Charlie/Kadeisha pairing.

Thanks for reading and, again, if you have a story to tell, tell it! Don't let similarities with other stories or concerns of what others might think of those similarities stand in the way! (Just don't violate that Plagiarism thing or the reviewers will bounce you from the site;)
