The remix_redux fics are out and I have a rec.

It's been far too long since I've really been involved with Harry Potter or thought much about it, but having one of my old HP fics remixed has brought it all back. And I get to use this icon, which I don't get to use enough.

Getting to the rec: Bellum omnium contra omnes is a remix of my earlier fic Familiar Debate

Why should you read it? Because it's about Percy, the character I loved but many despised or worse, was at that point treated as evil by some sections of fandom. It's about his role in the Weasley family as the different one and his views on the Ministry of Magic and the Order of the Phoenix showing that his actions are not of someone who is wilfully blind, but of a person who believes in democracy, government the rule of law, or at least, not putting the future of the country in the hands of what he sees as yet another exclusive cult of personality with no democratic oversight. While the Order may not be tyrannical or to be feared, Percy's view is still a legitimate viewpoint. And because it says that in a way that is better than the original fic did.

Also, what I love about it is that the author retained the original dialogue, so it can be read along with original, the 'remix' being that the point of view has changed from Bill to Percy.

Has anybody managed to guess what I wrote?

*randomly guesses* The one for eponymous rose with Sarah Jane meeting Ian and Barbara a lot?

PS Just read the remix of your fic and it's awesome. (Your original was good too, though.)

It is awesome. I'm so happy about receiving it.

You shall know if you are right when all is revealed (I did take you up on that beta offer, btw and emailed it to you, but you never got back to me, so I'm assuming I sent it to the wrong address or something went wrong).

I think something did go wrong, because I've checked my email a lot since I PM'd you and nothing showed up. After a while I figured that you were just going to go with snorkackcatcher. Weird. And it's not that I PM'd you with the wrong email cos I checked that and it's right.

...

Okay, I'm going to poke at gmail now. Maybe there's something weird going on with it.

Oh FUCK. Okay, I found your email. Gmail sent it straight to my spam filter for some reason, I don't even KNOW why. Shit, I hope it hasn't done this to other people's emails as well. Note to self: check spam for legit emails regularly.

I'm so very sorry about that :(
