I'm a bit embarrassed at how long its been since I've read a non-Theo fanfic. I just... stopped reading them. I think it's because I had read such a batch of good, readable fics and then got spoilt by a few bad eggs. And now someone emails updates to me regularly, so I don't go out looking for fanfic. II don't really feel like I have time to read it anyway - but there are people on my LJ flist that write, and I bet their stuff is good, so...

It may be some time before I can read it. The access to the restricted section can take some time...

I didn't even get an auto confirm email so I don't know if I've started the registration process... but I'm trying! See how much we trust you, Jo?

Lol, now I feel pressure. It's a bit smutty, though, if you haven't determined that on your own by having to register for the Restricted Section.

I don't go to many fanfiction sites, but I go here because so many authors are leaving Checkmated for here. Checkmated.com used to be my favorite, and virtually only fanfic site, but they don't update as frequently as other places, and their requirements are getting stricter. I read that some of their founders have left because of it.

Hmm... not so much smut in the first chapter and I think Hermione has been written a little weak.

No smut in chapters 1, 2, and 3. It's not strong smut in the story, just a touch and probably not even worthy of being in the Restricted section like other fics. I don't think the first two chapters grabbed me when I first read it. More of an introduction to the situation. The storyline gets better by the fourth chapter.

I really liked the idea of Hermione and Gus. I mean, she really does have to get on with her life at some point since Ron sure isn't interested or willing to acknowlege what's between them. At some point you just have to give up the ghost and move on. And most authors write non-Ron love interests for Hermione as gits, evil, or just plain a**holes, which causes her to run to Ron in the end. It's nice to see a nice, considerate character written into a story.

Don't worry Jo - we won't blame you for it! Ben and I are tough critics. I haven't gotten registered yet but I will...

Hi Guys, long time no see.
I can't believe I haven't recommended Meaning of One yet.
It is the best bonded Harry/Ginny fic I've ever read.
Enjoy
Regards Ichtys

Glad to see someone has their priorities straight - back on the board, where's the smut?

I never did manage to get past the board admin for the smutty fanfic, alas. But we are reading Lady Chatterley's Lover on the new thread so you can join in if you want!

Anyone who has good fanfic, post links! I always end up at McTabby's.


And I love you, I love you, I love you.
