There is a new IJ Community that is creating a list of Classic Harry Potter fanfiction. This is a list of the best of the best, fiction that is exemplary, groundbreaking, and amazing. The list is at http://classic-hpfic.insanejournal.com/.I plan to nominate Mirror of Maybe to the list. Not only is it an amazing fic, but it also inspired several other writers to write their own version.I have a couple of questions for the people in this community:
First, I know several stories have been written based on the plot line for Mirror of Maybe... Can you all come up with a list of such stories? I can think of No Way Back, by Meri, who credits Midnight Blue for the story idea in her comments. I think there was one other that I have read. Second, Is there any chance that Mirror of Maybe will ever be finished? I know its been awhile, but I can always hope!ThanksK

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.--I reposted this because I believe homophobia is evil and wrong--
Hi all,Chapter 18 of Mirror of Maybe has been updated, and is now up at grey/blue.Midnight Blue had this to say afterwards:-----Hello All!Well, 3 years is a *very* long time. I'm amazingly impressed that you're all still here. And quite humbled by your devotion.Thank-you all for your faith.And now onto the notes...I've sent a complete set of simple html files for every finished chapter of "Mirror" to the admin of www.greyblue.net/MidnightBlue/. I was going to post them here too (in the files section), but I noticed that we already have 97% of 20Mb used on this Group. The entire 18 chapters all zipped up comes to about 430 Kb, so it wasn't going to fit.There are some minor updates in chapters 5, 6, and 15. And by 'minor' I mean things like one sentence here and there, or a couple of paragraphs in the middle that were changed for consistency across chapters. Nothing too serious.Chapter 5 had the most changes, and I think chapter 15 only had one word added in.Chapter 19 is now well underway and will initially feature Argus Filch.Hope you enjoy.Cheers,Midnight Blue :-) -----Chapter 18 on the website is updated, but the other changes haven't been yet as I found some errors with the files that Midnight Blue sent me. I will let you know when they are done.
mwahahahaha I have joined!Now I can avoid checking my mail for random MOM babble... maybe
