Great chapter as usual
can't wait to see what happens
i thought you worte fred + george well
Author's Response: Sorry about the cliffhanger! I tend to do that, but I didn't want the chapter to drag on. It would've been really long.
Will something happen in The Three Broomsticks? Who will be the next to be petrified? Questions, questions!
Author's Response: In the next chapter, we'll get into the Three Broomsticks. Someone will be Petrified soon, but I won't say who. ~Sara
Shouldn’t be too long now and we’ll finally get to see the snake…er I mean Basilisk…
I'd better watch myself…I think Sarphina (The Basilisk…some fan fiction) would take offence if I called it a simple snake…
I wonder who is going to be below in the chamber…my galleons are on Hermione….
With all of the talk (indications pointing towards her) you have of her in this chapter (with Harry saying: “I know, but I have a friend who’s Muggle-born. I don’t want anything to happen to her.” ) I have a feeling I know what you have in mind…its either her or Ginny….though he probably wouldn’t care so much about her since he hasn’t really been in so much contact with her this time round…unless he feel guilty about her) Hermione however is different...…he knows her..and she is one of his Gryffindor friends
So…you moved the ol map into Harry’s second year…***shrugs*** sure…why not…I was wondering how you were going to give it to him….
I bet the twins won’t be happy about it though….
I can hardly wait to see Sirius in Harry’s third year … shouldn’t be too long now….
As always keep up the good work…
Author's Response: I have to say that a Basilisk is just a large snake, but isn't simple in that it can petrify people.
Hmmm....it might be Hermione, but it might be someone else. Nope, its not Ginny -- I'll tell you that.
Yeah, I wanted to introduce the Map earlier. There is a reason, but If I told you it would ruin part of the story.
Yay Sirius!! I can't wait til you and the other read the third story!! So far its my favorite to write and I love the real PoS!!
Thanks a lot!! ~Sara
I also liked that chapter because it provided some fuel for my theory as to who's going to die at the end of the story!
Author's Response: Hmm...perhaps. Theories are always good. ~Sara
Next one looks interesting! Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thanks!!
Finally, he realises (or suspects) the truth! What will he do now? I'm not sure what I'd do in his situation. Keep updating!
Author's Response: Yep, he finally suspects the truth!! Well, he won't be talking to Tom for a while, that's for sure. Thanks!! ~Sara
Even though book 6 made Tom to be sociopathic, it makes sense that Tom could very well have been teased by older kids.
My prejudices towards Snape was that his parents loved him but JKR dashed that in book 7. Still in book 7 the impression I got was that Snape was neglected by both his parents. But overall it is possible that Tobias feared his son and a letter such as that could have been written after drinking. Snape's reaction is consistant with his character.
Author's Response: I got the impression that JKR wrote about the relationship between Snape and his parents before book 7. What made me write this letter was from the memory Harry witnessed from Snape of his father being abusive to his mother. From that I took it to mean that his mother cared for him, but was very concerned with a horrible husband she had and couldn't always be there for Snape. And, as for the father, he seemed like a drunk and a bad father and man in general. I never got the idea that his father feared Snape, but that's a good point that I hadn't thought of. Afterall, his son is a wizard and his isn't, but I never really got that impression.
Yes, I wanted it to seem like the letter had been written while Snape's father was drunk. Thank you!! I'm glad you feel Snape kept to his character! ~Sara
Interesting chapter. I hope the next one gets validated soon.
Author's Response: Me too!
Author's Response: More will come!! Don't worry!! ~Sara
Wow! I just started reading this and I really like it! I love how you show Harry still being Harry even though he's a Slytherin. And this chapter was great...it's interesting that Harry's the one doing the attacks and now he thinks he's the heir.
Whatever happened to that tunnel he found in the Slytherin dormitories? I would have expected him to explore it more completely, and I'm kind of curious!
Update Soon! : )
Author's Response: Thank you!! He'll go back there!! There is another tunnel he didn't see yet and it is the best one!! He'll find it later (I don't know when yet, but he will)!! Glad you like my story!! ~Sara
I liked the way you showed Toms memory in the Orphanage...
It shows a real contrast between Harry's life (being bullied by Dudley and Co) and Toms life (being Bullied by the boys in the Orphanage).
I wonder if Harry realizes just how similar both of their lives are.
Concerning the diary...I'm surprised Harry hasn't thrown it away at this point...though if I think about it, you don't really throw away a friend....wonder who ends up in the chamber...and how the diary gets to them...
Don't tell me Harry has to be rescued...naa...you wouldn't do that...excuse me... I'm thinking rubbish...
This chapter really does have a lot of hate inside, doesn't it?...
(1) Filch.. (his hate for students and their dung bombs
(2) Snape -(the hate for his father)
(3) Tom's hate towards the other students...
The Chapter seems to fit its name...
Looking forward to you next chapter...
PS..I finally posted the first chapter of my own (first) story..check it out if you have the time...
It's on Fanfiction.net
My author name is Light Lord Cybergate
The story name is: 'Harry Potter, Life's a Prophecy'
Story ID: 3818860
Warning is rated M though (hope that doesn't stop you)...
Author's Response: Thank you!! Yes, there really is a lot of hate in this story! I didn't even consider Filch, but that's a good point! Someone will end up in the Chamber, but I won't say who.
I'll definitely check out your story!! ~Sara
Oho, so that would mean Hermione and Ron are both worthy of being in Slytherin, I mean, they being able to go to the Slytherin common room and all...
Author's Response: Nope, that's not it at all. Someone asked that too. Hint for the future: *couch* The rooms can be tricked into thinking you're someone else, or not there at all, by different means. In that case, Ron and Hermione were pretending to be Crabbe and Goyle and the room had no idea they were otherwise. ~Sara
yeah definitily, well what I liked most about your story and this chapter is the fact that you actually went to the trouble of trying to explain how learning how to become an Animagi, most people avoid it, just by saying things like: "...and so they read this and that book..." Not actually explaining or bothering to explain anything.
Author's Response: Yeah, I wanted to get more details so it really seems like they're trying and having a hard time to become Animagi. Even JK Rowling go into details -- she just mentioned how difficult of a process it was -- so it was all up to me to come up with the process. You'll see more of it later once they're done with their reading!! ~Sara
only on 4th year? damn it, alright....*whistles* a wolf's good! Story's nice alright
Author's Response: I'll finish writing all the stories and post them all!! Have no fear! ~Sara
Author's Response: I'll take that as a compliment!
hey Draco is still a child, and he's allowed to get a bit emotional once in a while, it's only human, I'd be worried if he didn't.
Author's Response: Draco gets emotional, don't worry. He isn't a robot.
I liked the Hufflepuff conversation.
Author's Response: Thanks!!
Author's Response: Thank you.
enjoyed the chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks!!
I think Mr. Parish's note should have come after the petrification of Justin. Justin was petrified while alone and Snape let Harry go to the bathroom by himself. Maybe Justin and some other student should have been petrified together.
I noticed how subtly you have had the student's vision of the basilisks eyes deflected .
Author's Response: That's true. I guess I just didn't think of it till later. Thanks!! ~Sara
