Author’s Summary: The sequel to “A Dramatic Reading” by White Squirrel – join Hogwarts and invited Ministry guests as they continue with a public reading of “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”, by J.K. Rowling. Features an actual plot, realistic reactions, decent pacing, *minimal quotations*, and White Squirrel’s permission.
My Thoughts: A Sensational Story is the sequel to White Squirrel’s excellent story A Dramatic Reading, and I love both of these stories to pieces. They take the awful trope of characters from Harry Potter read the Harry Potter books, write a plausible story around the idea, and then turn that batshit crazy, awful trope, into two excellent stories. They’re funny, they’re interesting, and they’re absolute joys to read. A Sensational Story is also written by the guy who wrote The Other Champion, which is another absolutely fantastic story, except that it’s miles better than this one (and I like this one!)
This story was last updated in June of 2020. The author then updated The Champion’s Legacy a month later, and has not been seen since. However, I am not fully convinced that either of those stories have been abandoned. It’s fully possible that Srikanth1808 just writes slowly, or is taking a break. Those are both plausible and acceptable reasons to not update a story. I’m only putting this story in the abandoned tab because a lot of stories were abandoned in June and July of 2020.
