Hello Neshomeh. Thank you very kindly for your response. Unfortunately, it appears the aforementioned invite link was set to expire 12 hours after posting, and the time has already elapsed.

I eagerly await a new invite link.

As for the distasteful story (this is what I refer to as writing sample), it goes by the title "Oliver Wood is not a Transvestite." Written in 2003 circa January, the mission is still featured under the Harry Potter wiki page. As a long time ally of the LGBTQ community and friend of many trans people I find the language used in the story to be offensive. Reasons include (but aren't limited to); - The CAD device's inability to conceive Oliver is trans in the story, thus referring to them as "manfemalemanfemalebagelfish" (paraphrased) - Upon revealing Oliver is trans to the targeted mary sue character, she panics and expresses a desire to kill herself (I believe such language is part of the community blacklist?) - The characters, besides the intended assassination, also seek to "correct" Oliver being transgender by setting him back to male.

I am unsure the proper protocol for handling such things, but it is my hope that you will agree with me such a story should not continue to be endorsed by being linked on your wiki (or anywhere else it might be).

Thank you again for your time.
