The Masters: Will be updated once every two weeks or so.
Policy on love Triangles: Great sources of conflict. Maybe sometimes they can work out.
Policy on Harems: In my experience they are usually lazy self inserts but there are exceptions to every rule. I won't write them.
Policy on Polyamory: I'm doing my best to write a healthy version in Motion Sickness.
Policy on LGBTQ: plus plus plus
Policy on Bashing: Never Intentionally.
Policy on Sexual Themes: Sexual themes are a part of life. It'd be difficult to write complex characters without them.
Policy on Cannon: Welcome to fanfiction where I'll change whatever I feel like.
Policy on Telling me I'm not doing it in a way that you like because you don’t like that character you like this character: Blow me.
Policy on Criticism: Yes please, I'll never grow if all I get are reviews a la 'good job.'
Policy on Angst: Every once in a while you need some angst but I'll also try and keep it light and not beat you to death with grimderp.
Policies on Sexual Content: I recognize that sex is a part of life and when trying to bring characters to life sex, sexual tensions, and attractions are an important instrument.
Harry Potter The Mind Arts
Summary: What is more terrifying? A wizard who can kick down your door or a wizard who can look at you and know your every thought? Harry's journey into the mind arts begins with a bout of accidental magic and he practices it and hungers for the feelings it brings. [Major Canon Divergences beginning Third Year.]
You're probably here because of it. Which is a little disappointing, to be honest. The fact is I'm not sure if I will ever finish this story. Or when I'll even work on it again. This last update I tried my best, put plenty of time in, and it still didn't come out like I wanted.
The pacing is terrible, Daphne's character arc sucks, and the foils I wanted to set up are poorly executed when they are done at all. It's a mixed up jumble of head-canons and fanons that I just tried to throw together like I was some kind of horrific machine learning program.
It didn't work and as u/thunder_dragon on Reddit first pointed out this story is dying, dying, dead.
In the end, it was a lazy self insert with harem elements that just happened to do a slightly better job then the next best things for a bit. I was tempted to remove it outright, (still am) however, in the spirit of growth, I decided to leave it up and not delete it. So, it's there, it exists, don't judge me cruelly but FWD critiques.
Anyone should feel free to adopt, continue, shred, and rewrite this if they feel like it. Any single idea or anything in general. Go nuts.
