Chapter: Chapter 35: Illuminations

Oooh.... good story so far! I like how you are incorporating a real sense of Harry growing as a person in with the impossible quest. However, I have one problem with the storyline... noone knew about the Horcruxes or the need to destroy them except for Harry, Ron, and Hermione. How did everyone find out?

Author's Response: Early in ch. 4 or so, Remus explained that Dumbledore had left info in his will. Dumbles had intended he and Harry to search for the last Horks, but he knew if he was killed, Harry couldn't do it alone. The whole explanation went by in about 3 sentences and a lot of people ask this same question, I guess I should have elaborated more.

Great Mother of Merlin,I think Jo's nyph had left her as she had written the trio's Horcrux search and found you.The Madam Malkin scene was very well thought-out and was natural in the thoughts of young and tender minds of wanting fit-in.Gryffindork thats a good one... Warner Bros should take a look at this story and think about giving you the writting unstead of David Yutz & Michael Slaughterberg. You have added more deepth to the boy wizard than I've seen since the OTP book version I cannot wait to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Hah, somehow I think WB won't be looking very hard. But it's nice to hear people like this version! :)

I love this book, I also read the "Other Book 7" and I really am not sure which one I like better. I am constantly watching for updated...but I dont like how it ended on it being a full moon, because its not like he would have not taken his wolfsbane and be running through the house tearing shit up. I hope that isnt supposed to be the idea... I do live the story, update soon

Author's Response: Taking wolfsbane? And who would be making that for him? Not Snape... and Slughorn's not a member of the Order...

Please keep writing!! It would be awful it we didn't get to read what happens!! I was so stunned by
the ending of the last chapter I wasn't sure what to say. But this has been a good chapter with Harry and Draco. You really are a great writer!! Thanks!!

Author's Response: Thanks! I have to finish writing it, I just wasn't sure any one was reading it anymore...

I like this story a lot... thanks for keeping going with it! It's especially a way for me to keep thinking about Harry and the Wizarding world, since I don't have access to the book yet.

Keep it up!! I especially liked the different look at the first meeting. I am surprised, though, that the Order didn't find the secret room when they were de-Darking the house.

Author's Response: Well, the room wasn't necessarily Dark, even though Aunt Bella built it...

Ooh. Cliffie.

The Madam Malkin scene was the coolest! It makes perfect sense, but why would Harry go right to that memory when he was reading Draco?

Author's Response: Why not? Gotta start somewhere. Perhaps Draco was thinking about their first meeting as he faced the wizard Harry's become...

i love your story; the characters and events are very well thought-out and intriguing. i liked seeing draco's side of the first encounter. i'm also glad to see that both draco and harry are growing up. i'm also very curious to find out what's going to happen. did remus take wolfsbane potion? write more, please!

Author's Response: :) I think they are both growing up--perhaps a bit too fast on both sides, but maybe that's the price you pay for being magical.

Chapter: Chapter 34: The Lost Boy

Awesome. Harry's reconciliation with Tura seemed a bit shaky, but I'm glad to see that there's still some trust there.

Can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: Well, it is a bit shaky--she's not used to being decked like that, and she really wants Harry to think about the consequences of his actions.

Chapter: Chapter 32: Truth and Consequences

First, let me say that I love how you're staying away from the pairings that we're all sure are going to happen in cannon. The Harry/Ginny book seven fics all end up with the exact same plot, in my humble opinion.

I feel so sorry for Ondossi! I know she was being kind of mean in the last few paragraphs, but Harry had just beat her and knocked her unconscious, so he sorta deserved to hear whatever she had on her mind! You're right, I was shocked at how Harry treated her. I love what Dumbledore said to Harry. "Miss Ondossi is no more her father then you are your's." That's one of the central themes from cannon, and I'm glad that you worked it into your fic. As for Dumbledore letting all those madmen get near Harry just to train him, I don't know that he's capable of that. Call me an optimist, but I think that Harry is a magnet for bad guys just because he defeated the Dark Lord when he was not even a year old(if only temporarily).

I think I'll just close with a "Keep up the good work!"

Author's Response: Thanks! For better or for worse, this was the plot twist I needed at this point in the story, so I'm plowing on with it...it'll all make sense in the end, I hope.

Chapter: Chapter 32: Truth and Consequences

Ouch. What a brat! That hit way too close to home in my opinion. Sure! Go on and tell the boy that is supposed to save the world that his mentor was a raving lunatic! Because that always makes people loads happier. I never really liked Ondossi to be honest but that doesn't mean it's not a great story.

Author's Response: No, no, the point wasn't to convince him Dumbles was a loony. That was just Snark. Her point was that Dumbles let all those 'bad guys" go after Harry to hone him into a weapon--that he did it all on purpose so Harry would become the One With The Power To Destroy The Dark Lord. Remember that Sirius hates Ondossi because she wanted to do the same thing to Harry. But no one seems to notice that Dumbles really went and did it, he manipulated Harry into becoming a warrior.

Chapter: Chapter 31: It Tolls For Thee

I was starting to get really annoyed with this chapter. For one, thoughtout the whole story, I thought Ondossi was a little old lady. Ron and Hermione were supposed to get together, Harry and Ginny, Luna and Neville, what is happening in the love portion of this story? I guess the part about Harry and Ondossi is shattered now. Ewww, Voldemort kissed his daughter. Ewww.

Author's Response: Bwuh? Well, I was never an R/H shipper--Ron's not smart enough for Herms. I love Ron/Luna though. H/G never worked for me either--she hero worshipped him for too long, and he's not the kind of guy who can really handle a big family IMHO. Ewwwww, isn't it? Voldy's not a nice guy.

Chapter: Chapter 32: Truth and Consequences

I think he would not have reacted like that. Even though it was a shock, she would have understood and forgave him.

Author's Response: Well, he might not have reacted that way. But in this story he did. Everyone has their breaking point, and in my mind, this was Harry's. As for forgiving...she told him the first day they met never to manhandle her. Voldy did that, too. It's just gotten pretty intense for both of them.

Chapter: Chapter 30: The Spirit of the Season

Sirius deflated back into a slump. "Oh," he mumbled. "I see. You fancy her."

Harry folded his arms. "What if I do?"
- - - - - -
Ok, for some reason, I thought Ondossi was a really old witch, like Moody or something. I don't think I like this 'thing' between Harry and her either. I find it too cliche that the only two Legilimagi in the world would fall in love. I would rather Harry be with Ginny or Hermione or even Tonks but Ondossi? I don't like it, but I guess I will get over that if you're the writer. *shrugs*

Author's Response: It might be cliche, but I saw it like this: Legilimency is really an intimate thing, getting inside one another's heads, and they spent a lot of time doing that together. Plus Ondossi is this oddball outcast character which I think ultimately Harry can relate to. She's 27, 10 years older than Harry; she seems older because she spent so much time in other people's heads. And finally, things aren't going as smoothly as they look, which you'll see in a short time...

Chapter: Chapter 29: The New World

Wait, I'm confused. Did she leave Harry in the middle of Alaska? Are Harry and her going to spend the whole break with no one but each other? Over Christmas? Maybe I should read this chapter again... I'll do that.

Author's Response: Oh, she didn't leave him there--I just didn't go into the details of them traveling back to London.

Chapter: Chapter 28: The Pitch

"Feeling both bold and foolish, Harry quickly put one hand on her chin and kissed the corner of her mouth. "Good night, Tura," he whispered, then launched back to the castle before she could say a word." - Maybe it's just me but is Harry falling for her? Eww. Isn't she old, and Voldemort kissed her, eww. I guess he is just acting like she is his grandmother or something but that one time when he wanted to kiss her, that was weird too. I don't know, I hope I'm wrong about all of that. Great stroy otherwise.

Author's Response: tura may seem old, but she's only 27...

Chapter: Chapter 27, Continued: The Pureblood's Tale, Part III

At least Harry got to see what happened truley and fully. Now that Sirius is asleep, they are one step closer to finding his magic again!

Author's Response: Well, not fully--he got tossed out before he saw the end of the story.

Chapter: Chapter 26: The Pureblood's Tale, Part 1

"And no son of Sirius Black would live to see another dawn if he were poisoned with the Dark magic of Voldemort." Does that mean that he was going to kill him? That was sort of what it sounded like.

I want to know who this Ministry Official is. How could all of this happened? This is a really big mystery. Why doesn't Harry tell Sirius about the prophocy, either?


Author's Response: That's exactly what Sirius meant to do. He was a tough cookie. And I think we all want to know who the Ministry traitor is, but the mystery has yet to be solved...

Wow. I've just come back from vacation to find that you had five, I think, chapters. This one really hit me. She was so brutally honest with him. I honestly cannot even tell you how much I am looking forward to reading the next chapter. But.. WOW. That's really all I'm capable of saying right now.

Author's Response: Yah, that's what Tura does best--tell it like it is. Harry's got a LOT to think about.
