Happily Ever After

Well, while I've been waiting for Hope to be betad, I've been working hard at Happily Ever After.
As most of you probably know, this is a story based on an idea that our own Dorothy (Ishtar) came up with:
How about a Sleeping Beauty situation where it's Harry who's trapped in an enchanted sleep/stasis? (Plot by Voldemort to make sure Harry doesn't win? Revenge by Death Eaters? Plan by Healers to hold him in suspense while they heal some truly dreadful wound? Lots of options.) Then when they wake him up a few years later, he really is Gabby's age. By this time, Ron and Hermione are grown up and want him to do the political things that are expected of the BWL, but all Harry wants to do is sneak off with his sexy Veela girlfriend ... could be room for some fun there. This would probably spin off GoF quite nicely if an author wants to avoid the angsty Harry of OotP - and you could keep Sirius alive, aiding and abetting Harry and Gabrielle against the more "mature" (read: less fun) trio of Remus/Hermione/Ron.
To be honest, I've not followed this exactly, but I think that Dorothy will be very pleased with what I've come up with.
This is the story that I lost the most of during the great Fanfiction loss of September 06. It was heartbreaking at the time, and it was only because of how much I like this story that I didn't abandon it.
I actually finished it on Monday, but I didn't realise I'd done so, until I reread it this evening, and realised what was bugging me: The part I was writing was suitable for a sequel - the ebb and flow of the fic demanded that the first part end before the section I was working on.
With a title like Happily Ever After, you can rest assured that this is a fairy tale. And I've got references to a lot of them in there, from Hansel and Gretal, to Rumplestiltskin, to Little Red Riding, via The Three Little Pigs.
Some of you might have seen that I've been teasing with my signatures over this, and I figured we could always have one more.
And they all had boobs! - Gabrielle Delacour
I'm always serious when my throat is on fire! - Harry Potter
Professor, Harry's invading France! - Zach Masters
I really hope that house-elves know how to get blood out of a carpet - Gabrielle Delacour
So, what's for breakfast? - Harry Potter's last spoken words in this part
Obviously, with eight chapters, all around 30 pages long, this is going to be take a while to be betad, and will be posted after Hope. I'm hoping to be able to post once a week for eight weeks. At least that way, you won't have stupidly long waits between the last few chapters.

the story sounds really good, but I find myself asking the question of when you will be putting it up, as it sounds really good.

so i saw your signature on the forum and my first move was to google "zach masters happily ever after harry potter" (i thought zach was the author you see) and that led me here, to this page. story definitely sounds fun, but when will you post it so we can find out for ourselves?

LOL, me too Darak! I just came here from doing a ten minute google while ignoring any results from this site. Finally I gave up and started looking through the listings coming from this site in hopes of discovering a reference to the author's site...
After all I reasoned, if it was good enough for Jeconais to put in HIS sig, this Zach Masters must be a helluva writer....

You had me there, I knew they were extracts from fictions but tought the name after it was the author so I was already looking for Fics from Zach Masters to read about Harry invading France :D

Excellent, I've been waiting on news about Hope. =D
Glad to see another Gabby/Harry fic. I've seen so many where Gabby just turns into a slut, and I'm looking forward to your more 3-D romances.
