White Knight, Grey Queen
8 - Finishing
I read this a while back and didn't get a chance to post how much I liked this story. Well written and plotted, and utilizing a diverse cast in a unique way that flowed organically from point to point as it built.
Bravo, and thanks for posting.
Have been a big fan of your other HP stories...but balked at the Pansy pairing. Finally saw a glowing reference on someone's 10 Best HP Stories. Congratulations on your wonderful transmutation of her.
Especially love your use of Ginny in this story. Very well done, indeed!
By far the most intense grey Harry I've ever read, and easily the best Harry/Pansy pairing, althugh I'm not too well-read on that pairing. Literally could not stop reading and it was worth all the work I now have to catch up on. Seriousy, I know its an older story but its still awesome, if a tad unrealistic at some points.
Soul Bonded, little did they realize, that when they shared Nott's magic (and Riddle's only re-enforced it) they bound their souls together. So, rather than they were a "Couple", now they are a "Trio", and somehow I don't think that it will be a problem for any of them. This was a brilliant story, very engaging, lots of action, with a dash of romance thrown in on the side. Harry and Pansy's love for each other may be complete, but they have found a place in their hearts for Ginny, and I can see a possibility for letting Hermione and maybe even Daphne in too, who knows, it could happen under the right circumstances. Thank You. TTFN
Awesome! Just really awesome.
Great story and well worth reading. I like how well Pansy worked out along with her family to support Harry into making him what he needed to be to win a war. Thanks for sharing!
Awesome story, someone from Fanfiction recommended this story while writting something and I'm glad I searched for it on google.
I am a very big fan of a lot of your work, first having been introduced to it through 'Hope' - which I originally read in French through FanFiction.Net. Wish I'd found this website earlier. Translation sucks.
'White Knight, Grey Queen' is one of the best pieces of fanfiction I have ever read, rated right up there with... wait... a lot of your other work, including 'Happily Ever After', 'Hope' and 'This Means War'.
I was particularly impressed with the way that you made Pansy likeable, though she was slightly too creepily cold for me. I loved your Ginny, though, and your Malcolm and Gruoch. I even liked the way you had Molly-the-prankster (which I've always believed in, myself) and slightly-mature-Ron. Remus is a great Minister for Magic - I've never seen that before - and I loved the description of Tonks in battle mode. ("My Lord!" "Nott?" "A spy!" "Where?" "Right here!")
One of the only things that I disliked about this was the coldness that became a part of Harry. I can see how it would be neccessary, though, and inevitable after a long period spent with a small amount of people for the sake of learning how to kill people.
That said - thank you for simply being around! You're a great point to bring up when a certain friend of mine is particularly sceptical about the quality of fanfiction.
Maybe you will do another epic-length piece, again? I do love them, though attempts to write them myself have failed. Miserably. Oneshots are all that I seem to have commitment enough to stick with.
Well, back to real books I suppose ;)
There is a lot of loose ends you need to tie up. Plz write another chapter.
I've read this many times now and always love it, but what happened to the end? I remember some out takes (Dumbledore and McGonagall taking out a giant, etc...)
I personally really like the way you slowly transitioned adding Ginny as a "mate", and would love a sequel.
Excellent story, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
One item I noticed: The Ruger Redhawk does not have a safety, the Webley-Fosbery Automatic Revolver is the only one of which I know that does have a safety.
just re-read this for the third or forth time, still makes me react to all the emotions that you manage to put through your stories, I am in awe at your talents as a writer and hope you will never stop sharing your works with us.
I've read your story a few times now and i love it just as much as the first time i read it. I would love to know where it goes from the cliffy. Even a oneshot would be welcome. And in closing just wanted to say that i think that you are a wonderful writer and cant wait to see what you come out with in the future. Thanks again Travis
I was liking this story until you got to the whole Ginny situation. Which felt really out of place and really out of character. That sort of ruined what otherwise a really good story.
I really enjoyed this a lot :) I guess you could tell LOL
Masterful! A truely great work that i will enjoy for years to come!
Just wanted you to know I really enjoyed this story and the unusual pairing was quite refreshing. You handled the wrap-up nicely. I liked the way Bellatrix met her end, Draco too for that matter. It was a nice read. Thanks for sharing.
This is a nice story!
I liked the initial ideas (both Pansy hiding herself -- and I now remember Lucifael doing the same in Futures Insight 01: Futures Insight -- and her family looking for Harry to make an alliance) and the way you went through the story.
There were some interesting ideas (like the Elf Council) and I did find it interesting that you made the wizarding shields stopping bullets (most authors prefer to make them either not able to, or just useful for one bullet)
And the ending was funny :-D
Thanks for sharing.
I sorta want a sequel to this story... It is REALLY good!!!
best story ever. It was a [u]delight[/u] to read.
