Harry Potter and the Deus Ex Machina

By Karmic_Acumen

Action / Drama

Preface

Preface

"-. .-"

So I was going to bed one night, not long after I finished chapter 68 of my other story, and the idea for an absolutely batshit insane Harry Potter fanfic, of all things, wormed its way into my head and just would not let me sleep. It's even worse than my Dragon Age / Warhammer 40000 crossover mind egg, which is saying something.

So I figured I may as well carry out a bit of catharsis and write down what came to me, and the result was the start of a story in which I will attempt to somehow use a bloody deus ex machina to make a narrative more interesting rather than silly.

And why not, I'll explore the idea of divine intervention too while I am at it.

So what will be part of this mess?

-Characters? Lots. Some you won't expect, some you definitely will.

-Time travel-done by none of the actual characters, bizarrely enough (not counting Time Turners).

-Heavy handed "forced salvation". None... I hope.

-A deliberately slow-going beginning (as in, the first 10 paragraphs or so).

-A huge mix between different esoteric concepts and JK Rowling's magic.

-Politics

-Lawsuits

-A proactive and rather bold approach to dealing with Voldemort and wizarding bigotry.

Well, that's all I've got for now. This story will be even more of an experiment than the other one, just so you know.

Pardon my egress.

Carry on.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them.
