Title: Chì mi na sgoran fo cheò: Only winds and rivers, life and death

Summary: Teddy Lupin, who has a job of academic research in hand, blags his godfather and his cousin – Uncle Harry and Uncle Draco – into taking with him, an Autumn voyage from Orkney to Inverness, and through the Caledonian Canal to Fort William and the Road to the Isles, in hopes that they’ll get sorted and realise they’re as destined a couple as their sons are. He’d not thought that it should want trows, hogboons, revenant Vikings, the great each-uisge of Loch Ness, assassins, international incidents, and the People of Peace to effect that end.

Author’s Notes: Och, it’s awfy Scottish, chust. An’ Hielan’ a’ that, forbye.

For which reason, I more indebted even than commonly to my editors, N and F, and the artists who, in addition to all of their fine work as artists, cast a critical and useful eye upon the work. Remaining errors are wholly mine.

I found where to start! OMG, I'm so pleased and thrilled to see you here! EEEEEEE! [flails]
Now. Need champagne, feline and several hours: check!
3rd-Sep-2011 02:58 am (UTC) - Bless.
You're far too kind.

This could very well be the most thoughtful and finely crafted piece of fan fiction I have ever had the good fortune to read. You have outdone even yourself here W.


3rd-Sep-2011 02:59 am (UTC) - I'm greatly obliged.
Unworthy, mind, but obliged.
3rd-Sep-2011 09:55 am (UTC)
LOVELY. I have to go back and see where you've made changes. The art is utterly stunning as well.
3rd-Sep-2011 11:01 am (UTC) - The ART is brill.
All that's good in the story I owe to my editors.
3rd-Sep-2011 10:16 am (UTC) - ♥♥♥

I'd been hoping for a sequel (of sorts) to "Potter's Lock", and this didn't disappoint. Love, love, love for the meddling family/-lies, and boy, do I want to see this universe filmed!

So many things to delight in ... esp. the Whovian quote! *grins*

(And now I'm off to scrub all the Corries' and McCalmans' songs from my brain ...)
3rd-Sep-2011 11:02 am (UTC) - Och, hen, whit for?
And thank you.
3rd-Sep-2011 11:24 am (UTC) - Re: Och, hen, whit for?
LOL. Just because I sometimes need to think of other things than my honeymoon spent in Scotland, these 30 years ago. :) I love Scottish folk!

(And you're welcome, of course!)

Thank God! I was beginning to unpinch my nose as I waded through the dreck on ff.net!

There were sheep! (I now must dig out that stash of rooed Ronaldsay and knit the tiniest pair of kilthose for my Harry Potter dollie.) And weaving! And waulking! Sea chanties that will work perfectly for spinning! A threefold Quest! Leannan Sidhe! Long passages of PWP (pastorale without plot)!

And the Fourth Unforgiveable: a pun...
3rd-Sep-2011 01:21 pm (UTC) - I really couldn't resist.
La donna e mobile, deus ex machina, and Wolf Brand Chilli: all to yr address, really. And the sheep.

Thanks, love.
26th-Sep-2011 12:51 am (UTC) - Re: I really couldn't resist.
Reading this again and loving it. I think I'll go to the beauty shop tomorrow and have my hair unbuggered...

I loved that great adventure. Especially Harry wanting Draco as equal as him *-*
And thanks for Harry in kilt! ^^
Last year I went to Scotland and I come back pregnant ^^ What a memories at Loch Ness! Thanks!
6th-Sep-2011 05:32 pm (UTC) - How vy kind.
I'm glad it pleased.

A brilliant story that trascends the boundaries of fanfiction and becomes the tale of an epic journey.

Perfect characters as always. Sweet Teddy, perfect son of Remus and Tonks and magnificent Harry and Draco, especially Draco fighting years of damage to become equal to Harry.

Magnificent work
11th-Sep-2011 04:00 pm (UTC) - How vy kind of you to say so.
And to take the time to say so.

Astounding, charming, lovely as ever, and that the author--the story moreso. Always thrilled to see new work from you.
25th-Jan-2012 04:29 pm (UTC) - Thank you.
And it's Burns' Nicht the nicht, aye.

Rabbie Burns and I share a birthday. I raise a glass in his honor tonight!
21st-Apr-2012 04:32 am (UTC) - My goodness gracious me!
I am, if the phrase may be permitted, sore astonied.

But, in the light of what I may still call morning, I find that what I had intended for an effusion of praise was perhaps more an insult, insofar as it was even comprehensible, against which charge I can plead only the fey mood resulting from reading the story, & the lateness of the hour, for I could not stop reading. Accordingly I have deleted part of it, & left the remainder below, in the hope that it may at least amuse.

The language puts me in mind of E.R. Eddison, or A. Merrit, or P. Anderson, at their best & highest, which is no small thing as you will admit, and the remaining aspects of the writing (for what is writing without language? a question none could have answered prior to the advent of the Internet, but which now — alas & alackaday — hardly needs the asking) cannot be called unsatisfactory by any measure at all, as the old Irishwoman said, who took two pills, to be sure, to be sure.

21st-Apr-2012 01:07 pm (UTC) - No, no, it was fine.
Thank you, vy much indeed.

(And if you can do anything abt Tottenham's recent want of form, wh, alas, is ongoing as I write, do ring up Harry Redknapp, won't you?)
21st-Apr-2012 06:04 pm (UTC) - Re: No, no, it was fine.
I very much fear I must disappoint you, though I beg pardon on what I conceive to be the allowable grounds that I happen to be situate upon the other bank of the River Ocean, in a land where what is called football is some kind of monstrous hybrid of lacrosse & dwarf-tossing.

By which circumstance, I believe, I miss about a third of your pre-modern British references, & probably two thirds of the modern ones (the remainder of those last being mostly courtesy of having bought a couple of old bound volumes of Punch at that darkly-mentioned event, the Library Book Sale). The classical ones, I flatter myself that I catch, though I am not the classicist I might be in a kinder world. Here are mostly colleges most uncollegial, & Universities so-called which forget that their fathers were guilds in the days when the commoners conversed in Latin over their trenchers, & secreted their tomes of philosophy for safety in the gullets of swine — but I lament unseemly.

Were he not a Mormon, & a convert to Mormonism no less, I should give this story to read, in the expectation that he would much enjoy it, to a Scots-Canadian friend who takes pains to ensure that I well understand such Matters of Britain as the Churchill Curse. Though perhaps it is ill of me to presume that he would be impeded in appreciation of the story for its being a romance between two men, I hesitate to bring it to his attention.
