Chapter: The Awakening

Wow... intriguing. But I hope, for JKR's own sake, that it doesn't end like that; the responses of overly-obsessed fans would probably be deadly.

Author's Response: Haha, I'm with you on that one. I think the world would be horrified, to say the least. I'm glad you like it, though, and I appreciate the review.

Chapter: The Awakening

Awww....So sad...and ironic. Though, I must say, the whole mental/just-a-dream/memory-loss ending is kinda sorta a cheap way to get out of the series....

Author's Response: Oh yes, it would be a huge letdown. But I don't think JKR would ever disappoint us, or herself, like that. I'm glad you liked this, and appreciated the irony in it all. Thanks!

Chapter: The Awakening

It's so... emotional. It's scary, and in a way, revelutionary. Living this grand life as a wizard, then to wake up and find that you are nothing other than a normal person, who has been through a coma. It's great that his parents are alive, but now he's not THE Harry Potter. He's no longer the grand surviver and the amazing man that we know. He's just Harry Potter. That's the impact that the story has. Yet you make it realistic. He hears that he is the 'boy who lived', and that memory could trigger the events in his dream. The Dursleys say that his parents died in a car crash, and that's what really happened. Red herrings. He has these traces of memories that are incorperated into the story. I must say, very creative on your part.

Overall, it was a shocking, eye-opening, well-writen one-shot that will definately turn many heads.

Author's Response: *Shudder* Let me just say, I hope it never happens to me! It was ironic, because as much as Harry hated being famous because of his parents' death, it was his identity - it was what made him him. I'm happy you think that I did a good job with it! It was so out there, but it had so many possibilities... Thanks so much for the compliments :D

Wow! Powerful! Thought provoking! A fresh perspective on the end. It makes you wonder why couldn't it end like that? I am thrilled at the imagery that you evoke in this short story. Nothing is missing. Well done!

Author's Response: Wow, what a compliment! That's pretty much everything I was aiming for. I'm flattered. Thanks so much for your awesome review :D

Chapter: The Awakening

Wow! That was utterly incredible! It's definitely not what I would have expected. Wonderful!

One thing - would Lily use the word 'wicked' to describe the storm that night?

And a question - who was the other boy, the one who didn't live?

Author's Response: :D Aw, thank you! I'm glad you liked it! As for Lily, she meant wicked as in harsh or cruel, not like the term in England (if that's why you don't think it fit). When I wrote it, the other boy was just another insignificant boy, but you can let your imagination run wild with that one... Thank you for leaving a review!

Oh, how I hope the series won't end that way! It was very well written, anyways, and something like that has passed through my mind many times.

Author's Response: It's weird to think about, isn't it? Thank you for reviewing (:

Chapter: The Awakening

I liked this story alot! There's just one question I'm dying to ask: so in his real-real life, is he a wizard, or just an ordinary Muggle?

Author's Response: Well, I wrote it with the idea that everything was just a dream - even wizards - and that Harry was just a normal person like us, with no such thing as magic. But it's still kind of open to your own interpretation, so whatever you make of it... Thanks for reviewing!

Chapter: The Awakening

thats kinda makes me think about what could have hapend if voldemort never killed harry's parents......but its still scray...but good.....i'm so confused. but yeah it was a good story.....but very confusing if i do say so myself... -_-'

Author's Response: Yes, it's creepy to think about. But you're confused? I'm sorry! I didn't go into a lot of detail on purpose, to kind of leave it up to your imagination, but the basic idea wasn't just that Voldemort never killed Harry's parents - it was that Voldemort never existed. In fact, none of the Wizarding World was real. Harry was just a normal kid, like us, when he got into a car accident, and the entire time he was in a coma he dreamed up the life he has in the books. Which would be quite terrifying for Harry, in my opinion, because everything he's ever known wouldn't be real - the people, the places, and, most importantly, himself. But I'm glad you like it, despite your confusion, and hopefully I cleared a bit of that up for you! Thanks for leaving a review (:

Nice job! This story is actually rather scary, and that's a compliment. :) It is scary not in the "Oh my gosh I hope JKR doesn't end the story that way!" sense but in a "Could you only imagine?" sense. I can't imagine waking up from a coma after six years to a life you can't remember, leaving behind a life you created. And yet, I'm sure it happens. Poor Harry!
Again - nice job! Keep up the good work! Now how do you suppose it will *really* end? ;)
~Gina :)

Author's Response: Oh yes, I definitely agree with you. I mean, I've had dreams before about something that seems real but once I wake up I realize it never happened - but an entire life, completely nonexistant? I shudder at the thought. Anyway, thanks for the great review, I'm glad you liked it. If I had it my way, JKR would end the series without killing anyone else off - but I don't think that's going to happen. We'll see!

Nice. I liked the part with the car accident. it's what the Dursley's told him.
Great idea, good story.
Nice day (:

Author's Response: Ah, I believe you're the first person to have picked up on that! It's all connected in some sick, twisted way (lol). I appreciate the review, same to you! (:

Chapter: The Awakening

At first, when i read it, I thought there were more chapters to come or I was waiting for more. But there isn't any so I'm going to see if you have other stories to read. This is the first story being added to my favorites. Yay. You're really good at writing.

Author's Response: Yes, this is just a one-shot. At the time I felt I lacked the brains and creativity to continue the story as a multi-chaptered fic. Actually, I still do. But I'm thrilled that The Awakening is going to be the first story in your favs! I have written other stories, and you might like my multi-chaptered ones if you enjoy a good ol' Draco/Ginny romance. Thanks so much for the review (:

*Shudder* Yuck, I would absoloutly die if it ended like that. On the other hand, very goos story, your writing style is excellent. :] Okay, well, bye.

that was so good!! i can't decide which i would like better; harry waking up in a hospital with his parents alive, or him being a wizard with them not!! it was such an interesting theory, and i really thought is was amazing!!!

Author's Response: I think they're both horrible! It would be so scary to wake up and find out that everything you thought you knew wasn't real. Thanks for your review, I'm glad you liked it so much!

That was scary!!! Thinking you've been living the past six years...and then you wake up!! Scaaaaaary! Excellent story, but freaky!!

Author's Response: Lol. It's a very scary thought. I don't know what I'd do! Probably freak out, like Harry. Thanks for the review (:
