Well... I can't disagree that this is fluff in the sense of lack of conflict... but it's FUN fluff.. I had a wide smile on my face through most of this story. IMO, sometimes a little bit of fun is just what the doctor ordered. Don't know about the closure portion.. but still wish there was a bit more. In some ways, this is very much calling out for a honeymoon/end of wedding "And they lived happily ever after. The End." fade-to-black.
Thanks for posting.
Sure, there is not much conflict but you still have the "fight against the environment" part in actually pulling the wedding of in time.
Besides it was funny and you write a good storry so what is there to complain about?
Overpowered "perfect" characters might get tedious in a long story, but this short one I enjoyed and would happily have read a second chapter. I can see how actually keeping it interesting could be hard tho.
I rather like this story and wish it had at least continued thru the wedding. I saw you feel it isn't a story because it doesn't have conflict. I agree that stories with conflict are entertaining, but I also happen to like stories where the good person/people have good things happen to them without any unnecessary drama/angst. In the case of Harry Potter, we've all read the horrible parts of his life, so reading a flat-out good part like this is very nice and I would love to see more, both of this particular story and this kind of story.
This is a story I wish there was more to.It is just so damn fun to read.
You know that feeling when you hit rock bottom and everything goes greyish; you know the feeling will end eventually but it is horrible to just wait it out. Then completely by accident I read TMW when depressed and it started me on the ladder to climb out. I have now read everything here over and over again when I am in extremis and I feel it is about time I thanked you. It doesn't work everytime, but then there is no such thing as a perfect cure and I am grateful for any help at all.
Oops, I got side tracked. What I meant to say was that this pulled me out last night and I think it is fan-bloody-tanstic. (I know this sounds incredibly cheesey but if I were to ever get married, to read then end of this would be a perfect wedding gift!) So thank you for writing and here's wishing you a happy Wednesday
You know I actually like the general premise of the story. where harry chases the un-obtainable girl. I even like melissa's personality.
Wonderful story but everything was too honky dory! Everything was too easy for Harry. I like a little more drama.
I probably reviewed multiple time salready, but I love this story too much!
Whenever I need to get in a good mood I re-read 'Princess' - it makes me laugh and smile the whole way through!
And no, I don't want you to continue it - I fully understand yor reasons to stop it at this point; there is no menaing in fleshing out your 'outlook'
Thank you so much for posting it! For me it saved a couple of bad days already!
You know, after three days of meetings, this was just the cheer me up that I needed to put a smile on my face. Sure there's no conflict, but why is that so bad? eEvery now and then, it's fun to read a light-hearted story that just feels good.
If it was up to me, there would be more of these ... angst and adventure are alright, but a nice fluffy happy pice has its place too.
This is a very good, you made Queen Elizabeth so easy to dislike.
You are about the only author I will read their abandon story's, I find reading abandon story's is frustrating.
I personally think it's a shame that you discontinued this story. There is conflict in this story, it's just you skipped all of it. You say you wanted to do a piece where Harry went after the unattainable, but already have him snag her in the beginning of the story... This would've been a very fun read if you had shown each stage of his pursuit.
I think I would have loved to read this simply for comedy purposes. It's funny.
That was totally hysterical. I laughed so much.
I only have one thing to say, Best Goblin Name Ever!!!
I swear that the following spittake and coughing/choaking fit lasted a good 10 minutes and had me fearing for my life. Well done. :)
this is actually a good idea in general but you rushed it. You could have made it a whole romance story as you stretched out his courtship and all the obstacles he had to barrel through to get her to love him and to date her.
Doesn't need conflict, I really enjoyed Harry being... well, Harry.
Only seen him act like this in a few fics, but they normally read really well, for the most part because they're fun to read - lighthearted, lots of laughter material, and no big words.
I don't need drama.
Story was going along just fine.
Would liked to have read about the elimination of all Malfoys and Unbridges from the magical world.
That's great. Thanks for putting it up for us.
A suggestion for a side-story, of sorts, after the wedding -- HM's interview with her Minister of Magic and her Prime Minister and what follows thereafter.
Wonderful story. But your right too sweet, needs a little conflict.
This was a very good plot bunny! I was laughing for most of it, and had a smile on my face the whole time. While I do love serious fics, it is great to read some funny, happy ones as well. Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to more!
