So close... my theory will either be proven or squashed in this next chapter. ..
It was a really good chapter.
But- I don't remember, did we ever see Ron's reaction to Hermione being petrified?
Author's Response: Thanks!!! No, we never did. Someone else asked that. I just couldn't find a place to put it. I hope you like the next chapter!! ~Sara
Oh! Now that teaser really is painful! Knowing that somebody is going to die and not knowing who...
As before - excellent story. Keep on going.
Author's Response: I love leaving people wondering! It's a horrible thing to do, but it makes the realization when someone reads it all the better!! Thanks!!
Okay...I certainly like this story, and it has to be the best so far of the Alternate Universe stories that I have read. However, can I give a little constructive criticism? I thought the exposition of the truth about Myrtle's death spoiled it slightly. Sorry - it keeps nagging at the back of my head. It just felt a little clumsy - I really don't want to criticize you that badly - and Harry took it in his stride. I still think this is one of the best stories in the AU Archive.
Author's Response: Why, thank you!!! I appreciate that!! Constuctive critcism is always good. If you ever have anything to say then go ahead.
I understand where you're coming from. I just wasn't sure where to put the fact that Myrtle died from the Basilisk, so I put it ahead of the death and when someone's taken in the Chamber because I thought it wouldn't matter. But I see that it doesn't exactly fit the way it should and I know that I should have put it after. You're right. Sorry that it's nagging at you.
Thanks for the criticism. I always like when people tell me stuff like that, so don't be afraid that you're being too mean. I know that you mean no harm. Thanks again!! ~Sara
i catn wait to see who is killed by the monster i hope it is riddle and that the basilisk listens to harry from now on and he gets the chamber as another place to behime self that would be cool lwell i have to go so ill read ya later byb
Author's Response: Hmm...I didn't think about that, so you know that it didn't happen. But I hope you like what I came up with! Thanks! ~Sara
I wonder who will die...
not granger not creevey not clearwater...ghosts cant die again .
I wonder if it will be a main character, maybe draco...
Author's Response: No, its not a ghost. I wouldn't be that mean. It's definitely someone who can die. ~Sara
Well here comes the time... the time my theory is tested... just believe me if I say I'm right! Please!!!
Oh, and update soon!
Author's Response: It's almost time!! Holy crap!! lol!
I'll add the next chapter to the queue today and hopefully (fingers crossed) it will be up in a week or so.
An actual death..I wonder who it could be...Once again another great chapter
Author's Response: Thank you!! Hmm...you'll find out soon!! ~Sara
No proffessor lockhart? ; (
Author's Response: Nope. Sorry. ~Sara
ha i like the story cant wait for more but is harry going to use his parsealmouth abilitis at all in this story to good use??? or parsal magic??
Author's Response: Well, he'll try to use Parselmouth against the Basilisk, but the snake is under the Heir's control, so it wouldn't listen to him. Thanks!! ~Sara
Looking interesting ... of course, lots of people will know (or think) Harry's not the heir now that Miles was Petrified with Harry nowhere near the scene of the crime!
Author's Response: That is so true! I didn't think of that at all. Oops. Well, let's just say that everyone is too wound up by the Petrifying that they didn't realize that. Thanks! ~Sara
Ooooh, I liked that chapter. When Harry had that conversation with Flint, I thought Flint would be petrifified. But I was wrong. What's Ron's reacion to hermione's petrification?
Author's Response: Thanks!! I actually tried to find a place where Harry would meet Ron in the corridor and see that he was upset, but I couldn't see anywhere to do it. Sorry about that. I thought of making the Petrified Slytherin as Flint, but I pretty sure he's a Pureblood. ~Sara
Now would be a good time to kill off a few mugglesborns and turn Harry Dark!
Dumbly is gone,
Old Harry is number one,
Potty is the mighty slayer,
He’s the heir on his way to the darkest lair,
To find Hogwarts pet and it’s scaly sire,
To hinder Sytherin in his almighty desire
Hogwarts monster is on the prowl,
Oh Hogwarts your savoir has sent the last owl.
Soon Slytherins pet shall make its way,
And in the darkness the Dark Lord shall come to play
“I’ am Voldy the mighty oldie....
The Lord who came to.... p-ssss-lay!!!.
(Hmm…that didn’t sound right…(the ending) Oh well…)
Keep up the good work…
Try to save the basilisks life…make it Harry’s pet! (lol)
Author's Response: Awesome song!!! lol!!
Now that would be cool if I turned the Basilisk into Harry's pet!! He could make it slither around and kill people for him!! haha!
Thanks for the great review! ~Sara
I'm almost certain of my death theory now... But a slytherin? being petrified? Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle are all pureblood. I think blaise is a pureblood. The only Slytherin I canthink of... I won't say it.
Author's Response: The character that's going to be Petrified isn't one of the main characters. But you have heard of this person; I didn't just choose this person randomly either. Yes, Draco, Crabbe, Goyle, and Blaise are all Pureblood. I wonder who you think will be killed. Thanks for the review! ~Sara
THE CHAPTERS ARE TOO SHORT :(
i want morreee info!
Author's Response: Thanks!!! I already added the next chapter to the queue! I hope its validated soon! ~Sara
I can't wait to read what happens next. I have a suspicion (I bet that's spelled wrong), but I have a guess of something that might happen to Proffesor Parish. I won't say it because I'm afraid that I might be right. I hope I'm not, but I don't want to know until I read it.
Again, this is an awesome story and I can't wait for the next chapter to be up!
Author's Response: I won't say anything! My lips are sealed!! Thank you!! ~Sara
Why does Harry continue to talk to Tom? Ergg...silly boy. Well, this is interesting. Hermoine's been petrified, Harry will know it's a basilisk soon enough, and now they're going to Hagrid's. I can't wait for more!
Author's Response: I guess he talks to Tom because they're very alike and I guess deep down he wants things to go back to they way they were before when they were telling each other secrets. Yep, he'll know soon!! Can't wait for you to read what's going to happen!! ~Sara
i like the story a lot and cant wait to read more so ill read ya ltaer byb
Author's Response: Thanks!!! I'm glad you like it!! ~Sara
I haven't beenale to read this story in a while, and I just read four chapters in a row! Only nine chapters left... Who is the next to be petrified? (and how many more petrifications are there?)
Author's Response: That's all right. I'm glad you caught up though!! There are two more people to be Petrified...one of them is someone who wasn't Petrified in the books! You'll never guess who the Muggle-born is!! ~Sara
I'm really enjoying this story, the conglomerate stone is brilliant a shame JKR never invented it.The room of secrets is good too, thought Harry would've looked at some other candles besides Mr Malfoy's though, perhaps later, I am only part way through book two. I also like how many of the events from JKR's world are still there but have been slightly altered because of Harry's change of house, like him being taken to Hogwarts by Mr Malfoy after missing the train instead of the flying car, and him writing to Riddle in the diary instead of Ginny. For a moment I thought Ginny was going to end up in Slytherin as her sorting was emphasised, at least this other reality keeps us guessing.
Author's Response: Thanks!! I'm glad you like my story! It would've been very useful to Harry in the books!
I needed to change, if not all, then most of the things in the stories because not only would it be repetitive to read the books over again (not that anyone here would complain), but it wouldn't work with the fact that Harry is in Slytherin. Obviously, things are going to be different if you're in a different House -- he has different influences and different friends.
No, I don't think Ginny could be a Slytherin. That's a good idea though and it would be a good twist.
Yep, I want to keep you all guessing!! ~Sara
Interesting chapter, i wonder if its in the next chapter a petrified person dies.
Author's Response: No, its either you're Petrified or you die. Atleast that's how it is in my story.
