I uploaded my first chapter of the Hermione Big Bang I started ages ago but only got to 13,000 words before technology decided to be tricky with me.

I am trying out the 'Archive of Our Own' website. This will be my first Harry Potter fanfic on there.

Here is the story.

Feel free to tell me what you think if you decide to read it. :) If you don't, I'll understand that too. :P

Okay. Now that it's 5.40 and I'm actually really awake (I slept until 4 p.m. - I LOVE post-all-nighter sleep!) I'll get up, dressed and fed. Perhaps I'll go out tonight if I'm ready before 11 and if not I've got lots to do here - cleaning, organising for school, writing, reading, watching, playing. Yay!
Current Mood: awakeAwake.

You're the second person that I've seen use that site. Tell me what you think of it. I don't have things archived anywhere but here which sometimes gives me pangs as I know that it could very well disappear one day and I'd be very sad.

I actually REALLY like the site! I just requested some invites from the site (there's a form) so if I get them, would you like me to send one your way? I can't promise that I'll get one, but hopefully! If not definitely head over and request to be on the list - they let you on soon enough! It's MUCH better than fanfic.org, in my opinion! Easier to use than LJ!

What a lovely start to the story. I can see these two bonding - and Dumbledore planning it - oh, yes. That transfiguration work was neat, and I love the idea of Minerva being shy, but preferring to be taken for 'snobby'. And the Corpulent Lady! How adorable. Why didn't JKR match her with whatshisname? Sir Peregrine or some such? To conquer her is a queste worthy of him!
I look forward to reading the rest. You'll post on LJ with links, won't you? I'm not on Archive myself.

Just one nitpicky detail - tell me if you'd rather I don't:
I do glance to it, though, and then blink. I turn back to Hermione. "Could you tell me the counterspell?" Wrong name here, I guess. It was 'Helen', wasn't it?
And I rather think it's 'minuscule', not 'miniscule'.
Well, that's two comments actually - sorry for being such a dreadful schoolmarm. Feel free to tell me to put a sock in it.

Oh, no, thank you very much!

I'll keep posting on LJ with links. :) I'm thinking I'll try for a schedule or something - every Friday, maybe. Then not too overwhelming with editing chapters and, near the end, writing them up!

Loved the nitpicky details! I fixed those two. Was hoping I had found all the accidental 'Hermione's, but I must have missed that one! Ah. I am not pleased with MSWord for allowing miniscule - dictionary.com even reports that it's a miss-spelling so frequent in edited works that it is becoming another spelling for the word. I would prefer to use the original, however!

You are not a dreadful schoolmarm. You are a delightful, gentle editor! No socks for you. Just great big smiles and a hug, if you'd like it. :)
