Currently editing Department to archive it on ao3, and holy crap, guys, why didn't you tell me how bad the SPAG was? And WHY DIDN'T ANYONE MENTION THAT EVERY ONE OF THE FORMS HAD AFFECT INSTEAD OF EFFECT IN IT?!

Ahem, some of that might be residual rage from Phillip Seymour Hoffman dying.

EDIT: Also, apparently I made Hermione a jerk. Editing that right out of there. Wow, 2005!Mallory. Way to be an asshole.

EDIT 2: Living in England really made me hate America for a while. Wow. How does anyone like this story? I was an asshole.

EDIT 3: I think I'm just gonna liveblog editing this. Why did I include so much of Seamus-I'm-very-straight-Finnigan? He had exactly 0 affect on Draco's personality and character development. He didn't serve the plot at all. Would anyone be opposed to me taking his character out altogether? Draco's going to America to meet Smith either way.

EDIT 4: Why did I have Draco sleep with Leopold? He made him physically uncomfortable before they ever even kissed.

EDIT 5: Yeah, Seamus is going.

Sorry. I never could tell an affect from an effect.

I'm still a little fuzzy myself, but I was definitely using it wrong. Also, I'm enjoying my schizophrenic switching from American to British English.

I am so bad at those things as well. Will reread to see what you mean about being so hateful and angry. I just remember I was sooo surprised how long it took for Ron to get into the picture as a mate.

Yeah, I did that on purpose. I was tired of reading all the insta-love Draco!veela stories. There are definitely parts that can be deleted, though. Like Seamus.

I love Department so what you did was wonderful and lovely <3 Seamus is meant for slash fics with Dean or randomly Ron *coughs*

Link me when you finishing editing cause I want to re-read again!

Haha, and that's not something I'm ever going to write. Christ, with how much my life has been consumed by Supernatural, I can't even look at the name Dean without thinking of Dean Winchester.

I'm slowly archiving it with the edits here ( I'll probably be replacing chapters on and here on lj, too, once I'm done. As long as no one objects to me removing the original version.

I've never watched Supernatural so it's still all about Harry Potter with the name Dean haha.

I don't object. It's your story and if you want to rewrite some things you have all the power to do so :)

See I didn't mind it all and I don't remember any America bashing and honestly barely remember Hermione in the story. I love this story but love your side bits even more that you'd send to us for XMas, that was what I lived for and for Ron/Draco to finally be together as much as I loved your other characters and visualization sit was always about R/D for me.

Still one of my favorite stories!!!

I've been toying with publishing my Christmas ficlets as a hold-over, since I'm starting to wonder if I ever will finish the sequel. Doing all the archiving over at ao3 has sparked a bit of my interest in the fandom again, as has JK making her announcement about Ron and Hermione (which I read about two days after adding The Weasley Wheezes to ao3 and now feel completely vindicated for giving their relationship the ending I did). If I decide to do that, I might add a couple of the scenes I've written from Ron and Draco's life post-mating with kids, etc. that may not even make it into the hopeful sequel because I've now re-thought out how I want them having children to play out.

You know I'm dying right now reading this!!!! Ahhhhhh!! Yes to all of it, Ron and Draco having children now that I would like to see! Yeah, I feel like Rowling is just saying anything she wants now just cause she can, not so perturbed about the R/HR, but the fact she didn't seem to have a high opinion on Ron, which is all kinds of BS! Ron is one of the most loyal friends Harry has ever had...but yeah, Ron/Draco make so much more sense then R/HR...I really hope the muse bites you extra extra hard and you start writing our OTP again, they need some am I pathetic that when I need my R/D fix I read the last 3 chapters of DOMC, Weasley Wheezes, your Xmas stories that you send and finally Tapestry?

LOL. Editing is good, but it was just so funny and fun and a long Ron/Draco fic, I have no memory of any flaws!
