Not right now, no. But give me a couple of days and I'll comment again here to tell you when it's ready.

Is .doc the best file format for you?

You're an angel, thank you! yes, .doc is perfect, I just switch it to .rtf and enlarge the type so I can read it.

I LOVED the Demented Demons story and am thrilled to see this one!

kalixa - if you want to give me your e-mail I have already saved this as a word doc. Also HTML so I can read on my handheld computer. I put the Letters in, too.

I went back through on the weekend and fixed a bunch of minor typos...so, depending when you took your version, it might be a little better now. Mind you, they were MINOR typos (missing commas mostly only a few bungled sentences)...so it's tempting not to do the work myself...hmm...

kalixa at gmail will get to me. Maybe I'll sleep on it.

I copied as the chapters were posted. I did run through spell check - American version but nothing else.

From: [identity profile] hells-half-acre.livejournal.com
Yeah...so your version would have typos and missing commas. So, I think I'll take the time to make a version now that I've had a chance to go back over everything once. I also changed a couple of sentences here and there for clarity.

But thanks for the offer! It won't take me very long to whip up a .doc now that I've done the editing bit. I could probably find the time to do it tomorrow evening.

Words cannot describe how awesome this series is (so far- I'm through part 1 and the Bobby/Hermione lettership.)

I don't know how to convey the awesome... I have no words. This is THE BEST HP/SPN crossover in existence: hands down. Your weaving together of the two worlds is beautifully handled and I'm just in awe of it all- managing to keep everyone in character and still manage the crossover.

*awed silence*

/me skulks off to read the sequel... :)

Thank you so much! *blushes*

And man, if you liked DDD and the Bobby-Hermione piece, you'll really like the next part, because personally I think it's even better (though, maybe I'm just biased and feel that my writing has improved with time).

I really do hope that you enjoy the sequel!! Let me know...and again, thank you so much for the kind words, and I'm so very glad that you are liking it so far :)

I finished this last night and I must say is was awesome as well. After I finished Demented I wanted so badly to see Sam and Dean in England having a bit of a wizarding culture shock and I can't say I was disappointing. Everything was almost exactly as I pictured it.

Some of my favorite elements was Dean and Sam's interaction with all the children. It was so cute when Sam was the giant climbing monster all the kids brought down in a pile of tickles. I laughed out loud at that. And Dean with all the kids was brilliant. I loved that he was a natural and almost eager to hang with the kids.

The wizards' suspicion and eventual acceptance of the two hunters was interesting to see. Plus the parallels you drew between the two cannons was very interesting. I'd never thought about the correlation between Mary's death and Lily's death, or the horcrux in Harry and the demon blood in Sam, or Draco's devotion to his father and Dean's devotion to John. It surprised me that all that actually matched up! That's what made this crossover great. I don't usually read crossovers at all because the fandoms every rarely believably match up, but this was different and I loved it!

And you were right about Draco. The bits of him in here were hilarious and sweet. I loved how Scorpius latched onto Sam and when Lucius got put in his place in dinner it was brilliant. Although I must say I usually prefer a nice Lucius and Narcissa, but I can't say I wasn't cheering when Draco grounded his own parents. Sam's bit with the gun was better though.

Overall, this was just as awesome as the first one and you succeeded in making me enjoy a gen story, just as much as I enjoy slash. I am a slash girl and proud of it, but this verse has just become one of my all time favorites. I just might have to read it again. *wink*

Thank you for writing this awesome verse and once again the entire thing was brilliant. It's now a favorite!

I'm glad you liked it!

There are a few time stamps as well - check the master post for the 'verse (or click the demented'verse tag). I'm about to write another short timestamp too, but I'm not sure when it'll be posted - probably sometime in the next two weeks.

I never thought about the correlations between the two canons until I was well into writing the first piece...but now I find it very fascinating how much they match up.

I tried to make Narcissa at least a little sympathetic, but although I love Lucius as a character - I do not find him to have many redeeming qualities...yes, he regrets his actions in the end, but I don't think that makes him less of a pompous amoral bigot when it comes down to it. But yes, that Malfoy dinner scene was one of the things that I was itching to write...

I'm glad you gave my story a chance even though you are a slash girl! I like slash too (outside the Supernatural fandom), but because I wanted to make it as canon as humanly possible, I could not write any (non-canon) pairings into the story. A lot of slash fans won't give gen stories a try, so I'm really glad that you did!

I have read the other timestamps not just the Sherlock one. Teddy and Nate were adorable, and I normally don't read letter stories, but it was very interesting to see how you had Bobby and Hermoine reacted to each other. The bits with Rose and the Monster book were my favorite.

I'm definitively a slash girl (even in SPN), but I'm also a sucker for happy endings and true love so I'll read anything with a good plot, no one(major) dies(permanently), and someone has a destined significant other at least at some point in the story. Your verse had all three so I'm beyond happy.

You did a very good job of making everything canon. I'm still a little surprised you managed to keep at most of SPN element on a relatively canon timeline while still accomplishing your story realistically. Very well done.

I'll be looking forward to your new timestamp and I actually hope there will be alot more of this verse (slash or no). I also really hope you continue your Sherlock "wierd" verse in a verse. That would be just fascinating and I think you could pull it off flawlessly.

P.S. Could I friend you?

Date: 2011-03-11 02:33 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hells-half-acre.livejournal.com
Yes, you can friend me! Many people do without even asking :)

And thanks again for the kind words - I'm glad you liked the timestamps. It helps that I also maintain a Supernatural timeline (the most accurate one on the internet, in my opinion), so yeah, keeping things "relatively" canonical in timeline is sort of a must for me :P

So far I doubt that I'll write another 32 chapter epic in this verse - but there will definitely be a timestamp here and there in the future.

Awesome! Added! And feel free to add me too, if you want. I look forward to future timestamps and any epics you come up with. *wink*

Hi, just finished Damned Demented Demons and really loved it, and was wondering if you could send me the pdf of the rest of the series.

I would be extremely grateful for it :)

Awesome! I'm glad you liked DDD!

I will indeed send you the rest of the series, but unfortunately, it'll have to wait until tomorrow evening. I just moved, and I don't have internet at home at the moment. So, yeah, sorry! (obviously, this is a sign that I should set up a download somewhere again).

I read the pdf you send me and thought I should comment here on your brillient fic.

It was over 300 pages and I read it in one day sitting up at night. I loved your characters, the way you portrayed key players of HP universe as they've grown up.

Your Draco is my fav, I think you made a proper job making him an adult than even the original story did and Harry's family life is more believable this way.

I rather liked the glimpse of the Weasleys as well, how they've coped after the war, and loss. Thank you agian for the wonderful fic.

Wow! I'm always impressed when people read the whole fic in one day. When I read it (after I had written it, obviously) it took me several days :P

I'm so glad that you like my Draco. This is the clearest I've ever been able to explain how I interpret Draco - so I'm always happy when people like him, and think that he resonates with the Draco from the book. :)

Thanks so much for reading and coming back here to tell me what you thought! I really appreciate it!

Hi there. Any chance I could snag a copy of the pdf version of this fic? I am dying to re-read and have to access to internet at work sometimes.

Sent! Enjoy! :)
