also - if it was rec'd strongly by someone who's tastes i respected, OR was by someone i had read lots of.
Author's Response: Hi Mrs. Q! I think part of your response got eaten. :P Thanks for reading my paper; crossovers can be quite the tricky subject. I agree with your comments above, and many people I polled did as well.

that was fascinating.
i've not read many crossovers, mainly because of the (pat answer no. 3 :~P ) fact that i feel i won't understand it if i'm not *into* that fandom. also i have the preconceieved notion that a lot of what i love about HP will be missing.
i think i would be most likely to read a fic with a character of other origins finds their way into the hp universe.
makes me feel very closed now, reading this work.
thanks for your insights, thevina.
Author's Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed my paper! I do find why people read and write (or don't) crossovers very interesting, and I'm glad that you did as well.
