well I think it's kind of sad that you abandond this, but your choice.
I think i like some of the ideas (i hope you wont mind if a borrow if my own little plotbunny is making it to writing phase at all....)

well those cliches you wanted to avoid, they are running rampant in prongs's continuation. i wanted to see this continued, i even new the risks that would come with it, but arrghhhh! between the Molly and Ron bashing and the "oh by the way we veela are bisexual and always alphas so go ahead and make a harem" I'm surprised he hasn't made Harry an heir to the founders yet.
Wonderful story. Too bad it's abandoned. Either way, keep up the great work. Hope to see more from you in the future.
a pitty that you abonned this one it had the potential to be better than a usual Lord potter story...
Harry sighed and slumped down on to the seat. “It happened with Voldemort,” he whispered. “It forced the last four people he had killed out of the wand. Cedric, an old lady,” he paused again, and finished with, “my parents.”
You forgot Frank BNryce, the muggle gardener or whatnot living on the grounds of the Riddle manor house.
hi my name is Shawn but you can call me Smurf i was wondering if you would send me the link to the continuation of this story i came across it a few months ago but lost the link not long after (that is if the person is still writing it, if not i would like to ask your permision to continue this story where you left off) my email is firstname.lastname@example.org hope to hear from you soon Smurf (by the way loved every fic I have had the chance to read that you have written)
Personally, I like it. If you need some change to the setup I'd have suggested making Voldy and his supporters too entrenched in the magical world to be removed, so finding a gateway to elsewhere became a priority as well as evacuating all their friends and family.
Of course that's a bit character heavy, so how about limiting the size of the groups and all of them going to different places. You still get everyone saved, but you have them in manageable characters sets doing the Sliders' setup looking for a new home.
And they may decide on travel and adventure before finding a home.
I must be too new to the HP fanfic's, it seemed fresh to me. And the whole absent Fluer thing ached of longing and romance. The four women bound to him was interesting and could have led to all sorts of problems as he dealt with their personal relationships inside the 'family' and out.
The story was interesting and exciting and you set the standard for us other fanfiction writers.
The only one in the abandoned section I consider anywhere near worthy of being continued. But, regrettably, abandoned is abandoned.........
If it's abandoned, may I pick up the ball and run with it? I would love to see what I can do with this one, as you've already inspired me a bit on some other things. Also, how do I become an author here?
Do you mind if I use this abandoned fic as "inspiration" for a story I've kind of been working on but been unable to really find a way to begin? As such, would that work if I found another abandoned fic I felt would work to jump start an idea I've been stuck on?
damn you write some of the best stuff to be abandoned. this has the makings of an excellent story and it's a tradgedy that it wont be completed. there's no use crying over spilt milk, so im off to read another one.
I like the way you write the Fleur / Harry interaction but I can see why this was abandoned - it would be difficult to continue. It's a shame as it's enjoyable.
I was beginning to wonder why you abandoned the fic since I thought it was pretty interesting. But after reading your reasons I understand. You did have a tendency to write magical realtionships. You also pointed out that it would come to close to being another cliche independent Harry fic.
That being said it would be nice to see you do a Harry/Fleur fic. You have a few abandoned and one-shot fics, but nothing concrete like "Hope" or any of your other stories. You have the skills and the imagination to pull off an interesting and creative story.
Speaking of cliche's though, cliche fics are not necessarily bad. What makes cliche fics bad is when cliches are used as a short cut for explaining things. For instance...
1)Harry reads more books than a normal human can in one summer. Therefore he knows all these spells.
2)Harry abuses the fuck out of a Time Turner and gets years of practice in one week.
3)Harry gets every magical power known to God.
Cliches are scapegoats. My goal as a writer is to take rusty cliches ideas and show that they can still be used to make a good story. Oh well, 2008 has started and I look forward to your future works.
I really like this one and im kinda of sad that its abandoned but your the author and its your choice. If you ever start it up again just know youll receive my thanks in your commments
I really wish you'd do a Harry/ Fleur GoF fic, since you clearly have an aptitude for emulating the Veela mind.
I like this one you have to finish it please.
Shame it's abandoned. I love the pairing.
Okay, I can see why you abandoned it but I still like it.
A shame, but understandable. It's an amusing kind of story to read, but doesn't really do much beyond just that. Amuse. Regardless, it leaves you more time for everything else so I can't find it in me to mind at all. Still decent though (as opposed to good... but regardless better than much).
