2/22/23 A note about THE LONE TRAVELER.

The Dr Who of the Wizarding World, making history better as he bounces around. My first acquaintance with him came from Dunuleos. Thanx for your positivity regarding my peaking in. The original author, as I understand, is The Professional.

Scattered among my Harry Does Different collections are currently 15 such occasions. Just like the rest of the anthologies there's no pattern to what time period he finds himself in. Nor a pattern to when I write him. I may characterize him as early in his travels, or late, depending on the needs of the story.

FAQ - When has he appeared? What's his backstory?

Harry Does Different #119[1st appearance, including backstory] #193, #195, #225

Son of Harry Does Different #7 #37 #42 #149 #156 #230 #231

Daughter of Harry Does Different #44 #45 #48

FAQ2 - Will I split him off into a separate story? No for 3 reasons. a]If I just create a new collection it would artificially inflate my stats. b]Deleting chapters and adding new ones to a new collection would also affect my stats; this time negatively in both hits and reviews, which I do like reading. c]Alot of work better spent on other things including writing.

I am defiantly annoyed by bad grammer.

Grammar is the difference between "Knowing You're Shit" &&& "Knowing Your Shit"

"That's the way they're coming out."

Actual quote from a McDonalds employee. I ordered a chocolate shake and got vanilla.

Book Seven and Three Quarters is my first ever Fan-fic. The title is a nod to Platform Nine and Three Quarters and a reference to the major battles taking place in March of Harry's 7th year. It was originally supposed to cover the War. But the question 'What happens after?' struck me. So the story goes on. Does the Boy Who Lived live happily ever after? Get the girl? Have kids? How do events on the other side of the world have an effect on Harry's future?

Story Completed 10/3/07

Thinking Ahead: 6/5/07

Concept 1: Harry & Co end up in an 'evil' universe. Inspired by Star Trek's Mirror, Mirror episode.

Concept 2: Harry goes to the GOF Ball with Ginny. Eventual Harry/Susan

Update: 8/25/07

Harry Potter and the Mirror of the Leprechauns will be the title of my next story. After Dumbledore's murder, Harry goes to the Dursleys' and with Ron and Hermione begin to plan the Horcrux Hunt. But, before they can leave Professor McGonagall tells them that Hogwarts is closing because of the danger of Voldemort. She asks them to help with some of his unfinished business. An alliance with the Leprechauns might convince the Ministry to reopen the school. Only they end up someplace where the people are the same. But as they quickly realize, while they look the same, these people behave very differently.

Story Complete 11/9/07

Update: 10/19/07

Not the Only Redhead is my next story. Everyone says Harry is fated to be with a redhead. So, when the Yule Ball leads to a relationship with Ginny Weasley, everyone assumes she's the one for Harry. Not necessarily, though. And there is more than one redhead at Hogwarts.

Begun 11/9/07

20 chapters and 100k words as of 9/20/08

Susan Bones and the Prisoner of Azkaban In the planning stages. Continues my fascination with the non-Weasley redhead. Also a Fourth Year, just a later starting point. The rat offers Voldemort an alternative to killing Harry. The Dark Lord actually likes the idea. Framed, Harry goes to Azkaban for a murder he didn't commit. Will start as Not the Only Redhead completes

Update: 9/26/08

1/11/17-- Haven't updated this in forever. Basically major writing is probably done. Little bits and pieces, addons to completed stories I'll do from time to time. But, a big 100k story is, I think, beyond me.

My current story EFFFF Harry is canon right up to Voldemort's death. Goes off with how Ginny reacts to Harry on discovering Fred's death. It'll wrap up pretty quick. Not a huge tale. Completed as of 2/18/17

3/23/17 -- Harry Does Different is a series of oneshots where Harry did something different to change how a scene in the books or movies went. Some moments are sad, some are happy, some are funny, some are violent. No end as long as ideas present themselves

8/22/17 -- Diary of Time is the result of positive reception of Chapter#55 of Harry Does Different.

4/16/18 -- This is weird, but interesting! If you can raed tihs, yuo hvae a sgtrane mnid too. Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.

Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! Paste this to your profile if you can read this.

9/25/19 -- For 2.5 years I've written the 1shot collection Harry Does Different Calling it a 1shot became rather inaccurate as I ended up writing numerous addons, but stick with that. Got concerned with the chapter count getting too high. Some reviewers said no problem; might not be; Hope everyone joins me for more of the same in Son of Harry Does Different

4/2/20 -- An unofficial temporary quarantine while waiting to be tested for corona. Still posting to Son of Harry Does Different regularly

4/4/22 -- Long time no update. Well Son of Harry Does Different is almost concluded. Hitting my, I now recognize, self-imposed limit of 250. But with the pattern set I'm sticking to it. The muse is still quite fertile so the cleverly named Daughter of Harry Does Different will take over when Son concludes. Not yet sure it will run the full course, but should still be posting until the end of the year.

review pointed me to Teufel1987 and a pic that caught my eye "GRAMMAR - The difference between knowing your shit and knowing you're shit."

5/11/22 -- ~~SON OF~~ made it to the venerable status of 250 posts. So he joins HDD in retirement. ~~DAUGHTER OF~~ is now up and running. May she live long and prosper.
