Seems like a great start to a story, but I despise Harry/Ginny pairings. It's probably because I read too many of them and I didn't like the way it was set up in canon, but come to think of it, I really don't like any canon pairings anymore. We already know how it's going to turn out and after having seen it done over and over to the point of monotony.

Truthfully at this point I'd welcome a Harry/Madam Maxine, just for a change of pace.

To each his/her own, I guess.  I'm kind of surprised you're giving this one a go.

Another Harry/Ginny re-do? Sigh.

Mr.Intel replied:

I hope that in and of itself that doesn't keep you from reading.  If it does, at least you told me why.  Thanks for that.

In response to your request for a list of redo fanfics:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/viridian_dreams/files/

includes several lists -- the most recent is called:

redo fanfics - reorganized.xls

which is quite comprehensive, but is two years old. A more up-to-date list would be:


Harry Goes Back in Time to His Younger Self by Lyra Snape

Excellent!  Thanks, Bill.

You are correct that "Nightmares of Futures Past" is the first redo fanfic that became really popular, but there were many similar stories started before it. "Nightmares" was started in October 2005, while the first true redo fic I know of, "Ashes in Our Mouths", was started in March 2003, 2 1/2 years earlier. By my count, at least 31 redo or quasi-redo fanfics were started before "Nightmares".

I will agree that NoFP opened the floodgates for the subgenre -- and that it was easily the best of the early stories of its type.

So far I definitely like "Making it Right". When reading a redo story, I never really agree with Harry's usual decision to not reveal that he has returned from the future. I understand that it might make for an easy source of story tension if he is keeping it secret, but logically Harry would have a much easier time of it if at least a few people know the truth, including his friends. Not to mention the ethics of the situation.

Looking forward to more of this story!

Mr.Intel replied:

That's really good information about the previous redos.  Do you know of any listing of such stories?  I'd like to read them so I avoid some of their conventions if possible.  I think the direction I'm taking is mostly original, but there may be some inadvertant mingling of plots/scenes.

I'm glad you like it!
