enjoyed it , but i real hate cliffies , its just plain evil!
lol , please update asap!!
Author's Response: Update is posted!
That was a very good chapter, and yes it was much longer and I definately approve. :) I can't believe you made stan the bad guy! well, you said it would be a surprise. keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thanks! That's what I didn't want to tell you when you were asking earlier! Thanks for your approval. =)
Stan Shunpike?!?! I never would have guessed. Your story is filled with surprise and suspense and that's what I love about it. (Only maybe a little less suspense, please?) The only thing that stood out was when you said “How much father?” James asked ..." I think you meant to say how much farther, but it didn't come out that way. Please update asap because I really need to find out what happens next!!!
Author's Response: I didn't think many people would guess this one, or at least I hoped it would be a surprise. I don't think the suspense will be toned down too much, sorry. I did fix the 'father' thing though, thanks for letting me know!
Good chapter. I wonder, what other surpries you have in store for us?
Author's Response: Just one more big one... or maybe more... who knows? I could end up surprising myself.
Nice chapter but I still have no clue who the new dark lord is and its driving me nuts. Sirius did some pretty cool magic. (Relizes that she's bouncing) No more orange soda for me . . .
Author's Response: Orange soda is great, but ever since they added caffiene to orange Crush... You'll find out come this next chapter!
-Oh, I love James.... So understanding. Poor Frank... i like him much better now.
-I think Sirius is kinda taking after his namesake... Untrusting to someone who has betrayed him... Nice touch, even if it was unintentional.
-Wait. The Quadruplets aren’t really quadruplets, right? They’re two sets of twins but they look so alike they’re called quads? Sono io confoso? Am I confused?
-“What?” he asked, pretending he hadn’t been listening.- Which he hadn’t been. Bad grammar. Sorry.
-“How much father?” James asked… Forgot the ‘r’
-The Weasley Weasels. Love it.
-“The Weasley weasels couldn’t see very far ahead themselves, this far into the forest.” I don’t think you need that comma. It just makes the sentence seem weird…
-*Gasp* E GAD!!!!!!! FRANK!!!!! *strangles* You’re next, Coon!
-Sirius left James and Lillian? *sniffles*
-*reads last review I left* You know… you didn’t answer a single one of those questions I asked?!?! Grr. Uomini.
-*shrieks with mouth closed* STAN?!?!?! STAN’S A DEATH EATER!??! YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME! Mamma mia! I’ll ask you again now (even if it is answered later) IS this ‘dark wizard’ the Dark Lord?! Oh boy.
- Whoa… Sirius and the Quads are inside that building? This is gonna be interesting….
-I don’t think I could even write something like this. Ever. You’re… gah. Infuriating.
-Whoa… nice trick… The dome, I mean.
-OOH! I want to pummel Stan’s pimple covered face! GAH!!!!~
-How did Moldy Warts get back alive?
-Hehe. Nice touch with the Dancing Death Eater. Like Shakespeare.
-Oh boy. Very good chapter… can’t wait to read it. I just hope that I have time to do so when it gets validated. School is crazy.
-oooh… we don’t want you to get your wife impatient. Wife first. :-) Great chapter, though, and We’ll be waiting for you…. Muahaha.
By the way, “uomini” means “men”. If you didn’t figure that out.
314 word review...you better be happy. *glares*
Author's Response: Okay, first and foremost, I didn't answer your question because someone else asked the same question before you and I answere thus: "I will say conclusively that the Dark Lord in this story is NOT Voldemort. Harry killed Voldemort good and dead, quite effectively incinerating his miserable excuse for a soul. This is someone else.." I should have answered you anyway, sorry. =) On to your current review: I'll just answer the points in your review in order, though some won't get a response since they don't seem to elicit one. Your second point is accurate, it was unintentional, but now that you mention it, I'm really glad it worked out that way. I did fix the 'father' to 'farther,' thanks for pointing that out. You are also right about the comma; hopefully I can remember to fix that too. Why am I next, and what am I next for? Sirius did leave James and Lillian, but only because he didn't think he could defend them at the time and he knew they were being taken alive. Sorry, I answered this time, though, right? Better late than never. Stan was the biggest surprise I had planned, and having Harry and Dumbledore be wrong about him was one of the delicious ironies that made me want to write this sequel. I'm not sure what building you're talking about... I know about school being crazy, believe you me. Good luck with it. Thanks for the very long review. As always, it was a pleasure to read; very amusing. I hope I answered your questions to your satisfaction this time! =)
another great chapter. well done!!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I hope this next one is up to snuff too.
Wow it's getting exciting! I love this story! Please update soon!
Author's Response: Update is posted! Hopefully they'll approve it soon.
I just discovered Harry Potter Fanfic...and opened "Legacy of Sacrifice" to begin reading...and decided to go back and read "Harry Potter and the Mind's Eye" first. I am so glad that I did! As I contemplated possible book 7 scenarios following my 3rd read of Book 6, I was unable to put much into words. Then I read "Harry Potter and the Mind's Eye" and I thought ...WOW! Many of the ideas of had were in your story...but so much better. The intracacies of your story line are wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed Harry's blindness and the return of Fawkes. Using Fawkes to pass on Dumbledore's knowledge was an amazing way to solve one of the areas I see as a problem that will need to be addressed in Book 7. The whole Mind's Eye was incredible creative. I found your story to be so complete, creative and "spell-binding" (HAHA) that I think it may be hard for even JK to top it. Honestly, I am glad that I didn't discover your story until you had already completed it...because I would've hated to have to wait for the next chapter!
Now, Sirius as a Phoenix that looks like Fawkes! Wow!! I am lovin' it!!
Thanks for the time you are putting into your wonderful stories...I am finding it to be a very fulfilling way to stay in the Harry Potter world until book 7...and beyond.
So...with your wonderfully descriptive writing style and ability to successfully carrry through a complex story line...when is your own book coming out...one you can get paid for. I'll buy it and read it!!
Author's Response: This is quite flattering indeed! Truthfully, I have long had goals to write my own book, and I've veen outlining it since I started writing Mind's Eye. I don't want to start writing it until I'm done with this story, since I've noticed that my writing style has improved drastically as I've written more. I think by the time I finish this one I might be close to good enough to get published. (hopefully!) Once I have a book written and published, I'll be sure to put an ad for it at the end of my stories on the website. Thanks for thinking I'm good enough to make it!
I love this story! I always think it's cool to see the trio and company's kids in stories. Not to mention, it's fun to see everyone grown up and to see that they haven't changed much! I loved your first story too, it had such an interesting perspective on everything.
Author's Response: Thank you! I really wanted to write something that was following what J.K. had already written but still be unique from what has been written on this site otherwise. I'm glad you like it!
Aagh i can't stand the suspense!!! who is it? what happens? please update soon!
Author's Response: Updating as we speak... though we aren't exactly communicating in real time, so by the time you read this I'm sure I will have submitted it for some time already. =)
...and so the plot thickens...MORE!!!
Author's Response: Are you saying that the plot is thickening FURTHER, or was the more a request for more of the story? =)
Oh yeah, I forgot, Mouldy-Shorts! *laughs* Let's not forget Hacklemort, Toady-Warts, of course, the ever popular Mouldy-Shorts, Oldie-Goarts (DON'T ask), world-famous Voldy, Mouldy-Warts, Snake-Face, Ugly Mug, Mr. Not-Dying-Anytime-Soon, ect ect *sniggers*
Author's Response: Mr. Already Dead, as far as my stories are concerned at this point. =)
Oooh... things are heating up. Update soon, I can't wait!!!
Author's Response: Update is coming immediately!
this my 1st review for this story and i have to say this a most evil cliffe but then again you are great at them (although there where some in minds eye that darn near gave me a heart attack) so i would love to see another uber evil clifee but GREAt job so far and dont take to long to update!
Author's Response: There will be at least one more cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers. I keep thinking that a bunch of people are going to get so fed up with them that they won't keep reading, but so far no one has said so, and I do so love to write them. I hope this wasn't too long! (it probably was...)
Please update. Please?
Thoughts and theories of Joy:
1. Malfoy is the new Riddle
2. Sirius is gonna have to tell (or show) his parents his ability
3. Mushy gushy saving love?
Author's Response: 1. Not telling. 2. Not telling, but I think that this one doesn't need an answer because you're right. =) 3. Maybe...
OMG what a cliffhanger!! I've been following the story for a while now but this is my first time posting a review. I am really enjoying the story (well except for cliffies like this that make my heart leap out of my mouth lol), and I just want to tell you that I'm really enjoying your writing style. The characters are just so well written!!
Please post another chapter soon! Great job!!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for reading and enjoying my stories, and I'm glad you decided to post a review. It's always nice, no matter how long it takes to answer all of them. =) The next chapter will be up as soon as it is validated!
Author's Response: Ahh, this, yes?
I didn't mean to enter in 4 reviews earlier, my comp froze then all us a sudden, pow pow pow, it posted all of them and I couldn't get rid of them. I really only meant to pester you once. The chapter was great, but I'm dying to know more information!!! Can't wait for the next chapter and you better keep your promise, that it will be long and filled with interesting revelations! Great story? How many more chapters are you expecting to write before it wraps up?
Author's Response: It's happened to everyone at some point or another, so don't worry about it. The next chapter is fully twice as long as this one, but I've learned that until the story is completely finished there will be no pleasing everyone. My wife read this chapter and the first thing she said was "That's it?" So even though it's longer, it probably won't be enough. =) I think there will be another two or three or so chapters after this one.
I do like this story. And the prequel too. They both have kept me from my homework for three days! Ther are some thing I'd like to point out, but it's quite late, so I'll leave that for the next chapter.
Is Draco the dark lord? I'm not sure you killed him before. It took me a long time to figure out the minion was Frank, only until you mentioned the yellow robe.
Update soon, please!
Author's Response: Thanks, I really like being thought of as good. I also take pride in keeping people from homework, since homework is mean enough to keep me from my story so often. It's kind of like payback. =) As to your question, I'll answer it in the story when all is revealed and not a second before. Sorry!
