Episode 55 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!
PotterFicWeekly is pleased to kick off our five-week analysis of The Paradigm of Uncertainty trilogy, by Lori! Tonight’s episode covers the first nine chapters of the first fic.
Nine years after graduating from Hogwarts, Charms fellow Hermione Granger again finds herself caught up in Harry Potter’s mysterious life.
That simple summary line fails to do the fic justice. Lori began this fic prior to the release of Goblet of Fire, setting the stage ten years after Hogwarts. Harry and Hermione are still struggling with the loss of Ron at the hands of Voldemort, and are joined by a cast of characters from the canon years, Lori’s imagination, and from just about any fandom you can imagine. Susan B. Anthony shows up at one point or another, as I recall.
I’m a tough, blunt critic. Putting aside wank wars and old, delusional arguments, I would urge anyone who has not done so to read Paradigm of Uncertainty. While I have lots to say, both favorable and critical, it was a truly enjoyable reading experience. The characters are deeply layered and provoked great discussion and thought. I’ve never laughed this hard on a podcast in my life.
Enjoy, and happy listening!
Do the best you can for as long as you can. Remember that all may yet be well. Don't be afraid.
