Okay, to make things nice and simple? Harry Potter and the Wand of Uru came first. I hit a road block. I thought I could fix it. I rewrote a big chunk of it. I was still stuck. So then I rewrote it and posted the new version for you to read. Harry Potter and the Second Life was the product of that experiment. It got a little bit further. Then it stalled out because the problem I thought I'd fixed... still existed. I'd wasted a year and change of my time reworking Wand of Uru, and really had nothing to show from it. Then I figured out what I was doing wrong and how to fix it. But it meant working with Wand of Uru again. So I sat down with both stories and began working on integrating the best parts of Second Life - and there were several parts I liked better - with Wand of Uru's Norse theme. I'm still working on it, but I've been told it's better than either Wand of Uru's original version or Second Life. Which brings us to today.
I'm not done yet. It's a work in progress. The revisions are unfinished. I'm not sure how many other ways to put it.
Chapters #1 through #10 have been rewritten, beta read, and reposted already.
Chapters #11 through #18 are the old copies.
There are some glaring differences between the two versions. If you go past #10 at present, you will run into them. If you want to read the second half of the story to get an idea for what'll be coming in the revisions, that's your right. Let me just say, though, that the current last chapter of this story is #18. That chapter will be at least #21 when the revisions are done. Yes, three chapters - at a minimum - of content new to this story are coming. One of those chapters is completely new; that is to say, it's not made from pieces of the original or pieces grafted on from Second Life. The existing content is also being rewritten and - in some cases - heavily revised.
You can read it.
I can't promise it'll make sense in the greater context of the story.
I'll be back with further information and updates when things happen.
PS: Anonymous reviews without contact information won't get you answers. I'm not one of those people who bloats up the end of each chapter with a million responses to reviews from the previous chapter.
PPS: If you have private messaging turned off for your account, I can't respond to your signed review. Which in turn means you won't be getting an answer to your questions. Nothing I can do. Sorry?
