Great story so far. I really like your ideas. Keep em comin'!
Author's Response: I'll do my best ;-} Thanks for your thoughts, they're always a pleasure!!
I like this story alot. Finally, Harry concentrated on CONSTANT VIGILANCE! No bad comments here.This story is turning out to be better than I thought it was.Great job .Keep writing!
Author's Response: I was about to hex him myself! Thanks for this, and you keep writing as well!!
Ooooh, I like this. It's great! Dark, thoughtful... can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: Thank you!! Hope you like the rest just as well and I hope to hear from you again soon!!
Muhwawawawa! I found your little secret. *cough, cough*. Now i face a dilema, should I read ahead, or wait until you post here!?!? It's just too tempting!!!
Author's Response: Well you could but... it will not be EXACTLY the same, nor will it be nearly as good. I'm proudest of my work here because I've had the chance to edit and change certain parts that I feel either don't "flow" properly or explain something correctly, or just to simply make my story one that's better told. An example: I "scrambled" to finish a chapter recently, I realized when I went to write the next that I COMPLETELY omitted a character that NEEDED to be there for the next chapter to make sense!!!! Guess what? By the time that chapter is here, that character WILL be there ;-} Ultimately, this is where my story will remain at it's best...
poor harry! he must feel very tired! but as we already know he has some calming things around him which make him feel more relaxed! once more you wrote an absolutely good chapter! :D especially the sweet little scenes when harry remembered hermione! but that he wrote down his demise... that was pretty sad! :( but i loved that he would give the two most important things to hermione! but who gets his firebolt?? ;) loved the chapter - but i still can't wait to read harry gets his occlumeny lessons with hermione! :)
Author's Response: Yeah... Harry was feeling pretty depressed there... Thank goodness for Crookshanks! The Firebolt will be discussed later *wink* The Occlumency's coming... but there are some other things that need to happen first... Once again, THANK YOU!!!! I definitely look forward to reading your reaction! :luv:
....the sweet familiar scents......this could only mean one thing... and we all know what that is! I get so happy everytime there is a new chapter. I am truly glad that I have been here since the beginning....ahoy matey! you get a 10.
Author's Response: Emma06, you're just too sweet! :-)
Excellent! I really enjoyed this chapter. Your characterizations of all the teachers were WONDERFULLY accurate, and your descriptions equally so. There were some sweet moments (like the effect Crookshanks and Hermione's coat had on Harry), and you kept it very realistic. I like that you're several chapters in and there's no romance; once again, that makes for a great set-up and for quite a bit of healthy anxiety! Everything is so amazingly realistic, I wonder if this couldn't be canon! I'm really into this now- keep it up!
Author's Response: There is no greater compliment is there?I love your detailed and poignant reviews!! You're the absolute best Elysa!! :luv:
Loved it! I wonder if Hermione knew that Crookshanks would have such a calming effect (along with the coat) on Harry? Loved the Constant Vigilance sequences with Moody. The training sessions with Flitwick and McGonagall were well written and plausible. Nicely done!
Author's Response: I wonder if Hedwig makes her feel the same? *wink, wink* Moody's great, I love him too... Thank you for this!! Hope to hear what you think of the next!
SO GOOD! Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thanks for the vote of confidence!!
Excellent. I really LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please continue, it truly is awesome. Please update soon.
Author's Response: Thanks!!! Just love your name! :-)
Bravo!That was so awesome!I like the way you dont just jump into things that you slowly move from one thing to another.I give it 2 thumbs way way up!keep writing , i cant get enough!
Author's Response: Good to hear from you!! You truly honor me! :-)
Absolutely brilliant writing style. I adore your descriptions. Your chapters are so dynamic I find myself reading and reading, while wishing it won't end. You've really done a wonderful job building the tension and expectation between Harry and Hermione already. Keep up the great work! Update ASAP!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for this wonderful review! I can't tell you how happy I am that you enjoyed reading it as much as you did! :-) I do look forward to hearing from you, and I hope you like the rest just as well!
Another great chapter! Keep up the great work and please update again soon :-)
oh and i'm pretty sure that i'll ike the next chapter not less than this one - and if one thing is for sure than that i LOVED it! :) oh and thanks for that hint! hehehe i'm really looking forward to the next one so we can find out what made hermione blush! did i ever told you that you're a great author? never? because i definitely should have!
i love your story! i really liked the part about the underpants too! please update soon!
Author's Response: I actually laughed myself when I wrote that scene! :-) Thank you for your thoughts!!
cloaked figure that isnt snape eh! intruiging, i shall hav 2 read on 2 find out!. v good chapter
Author's Response: All will be revealed in due time... I'm glad you liked this one! Hope to hear from you again soon!!
and another question. did hermione really blush because of his pants or did she find the cloak and was surprised by it or what was it? i really loved it when they both blushed like hell! lol
Author's Response: Because I like you so much, I'll answer you straight out... It had nothing to do with his pants. ;-} Harry will think more on it in the next chapter. I'm thrilled you liked this chapter so much! I had a feeling you would ;-)
Oh, my favorite chapter so far! Hermione and Harry had to clear the air and get to the point where they recognized themselves as a couple - even if they think they're only a couple of teenagers against Volde at this time. I bet Harry will look forward to seeing Hermione at Grimmauld Place. So well written, sweet and funny too!
Ok, the cloaked figure isn't Snape (as I originally thought) because Snape is the Potions Master....hmmm Who could it be? And why/who will it be difficult to hide his injuries? I will think on this! (I saw your comments below also.) Very interesting....A great job describing Voldemort, his surroundings, and his evil ways. (BTW - I've added your story to "My Favorites". :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much for adding the story to your favorites! I've read your bio and I can honestly say that I'm honored!
You've done a wonderful job setting up your tale - the puberty comment - then Hermione's arrival, Lupin and Dobby as Harry's "family" at HQ, and Harry's upcoming training with Dumbledore's contribution unknown. I liked that Harry slept on/with Hermione's wonderfully scented coat, I could see where that could be comforting to him. I'll be interested to see how it all comes about. Again, well done!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review each chapter! That was wonderfull of you to do so! ;-) I really enjoyed writing this chapter and I'm simply thrilled that you enjoyed reading it!!
