I know it's some years ago, but I just joined this comm after clicking on his journal in my friends list.
I have no story yet, but this made me remember a story, I started in '03/04 and which is inspired by Michael's veela story. I so loved his style and always remeber the scene with Harry and Draco on the quidditch pitch, where he described Dracos emotions and his sadness, which climaxed in his tears and the starting rain. When I read this, I had tears in my eyes, I remeber this very well... Michael had a beautyful style, but all of you know this ;)
Back then I icq'ed with him and told him about my story and that he inspired me, and he was eager to learn more about it, but sadly it was only in German and the promised translation never came...
So I'll take this as a kick to finish and translate my own veela story and post it - for him!
