Doctor Who and the Defence Against the Dark Arts
has been nominated for a Children of Time Award
(CoTA) in the "Work in Progress" category! Hurrraaaay!
I'll probably lose to one of the rival BSDM-themed fics in my category but, hey, it's an honor to be nominated.
To celebrate, however, I've upload the revised version
I mentioned a few blog posts back. See, I rarely re-read my own fics mostly because 1) I wrote them so I already know pretty well what shit went down, and 2) because I only ever see bad writing and errors. Normally, I'd have left DADA
alone, but I realized that I needed to change the overall story once I realized I'd been missing a key Harry Potter
plot point. Namely, the War. And if there's one thing Harry Potter and the Doctor have in common (aside from being British cultural icons) it's that they both fought in a war and were damaged by it. Blame the crew at PotterficWeekly
for making me think critically about the post-DH world. So I've made some slight
revisions to the existing 5 chapters of the story, mostly dealing with clunky description and rewriting bits of dialogue for better flow, to set up this plot thread.
Chapter 6 is still a work in progress and will be posted when it's done.
BUT! You can find a sneak peek of the next Doctor Who and the Defence Against the Dark Arts
chapter below the cut.( Read more... )
