My other obsession, continued
Today Chapter 113 of Harry Potter and the Method’s of Rationality had a cliffhanger, then an Author’s note.
This is your final exam.
You have 60 hours.
Your solution must at least allow Harry to evade immediate death…
Well, the exact constraints are somewhat spoilery, but it’s a pretty hopeless situation. Worse yet.
If a viable solution is posted before
*12:01AM Pacific Time* (8:01AM UTC) on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015,
the story will continue to Ch. 121.
Otherwise you will get a shorter and sadder ending….
Like any author, I enjoy the delicious taste of my readers’ suffering….
So, I thought about it for several hours, iterated a few times and I’ve posted my solution as a short story. (Not to the official site, this is a Beta test). If you are caught up on the story please read and comment. (If you haven’t, but don’t care, you should read the Author’s notes for the full constraints. Of course, if you haven’t read the full story, some of the details won’t make sense, and my favorite line will definitely not make sense).
