Nooooooooooooooo!!! *sigh* I'm pathetic. I made the freakin' banner, so I obviously knew what Harry was going to choose, but still.... Gah! Now that we're to this point, though, I REALLY want to see what's going to happen. After all, in a way, this is where the story really begins. Keep up the good work, and please update soon!
Author's Response: Nuw! No, you aren't pathetic. I will be the same way with the new fic that someone is planning. ; ) I was actually on my way to get the banner up (I couldn't wait anymore!) when I saw that I had 7 new reviews. Wow! So check back in a little bit. And it is where the story begins, isn't it? Hehehe. Long way to go until this is over. : D Thanks a lot and see you (sorta...) soon! ~Moony
this will get intresting
Can't wait for the next chapter 10/10
Author's Response: Thanks! A 10/10... When I first posted this, I never thought I would hear some of what you guys are saying. Thanks a bunch and I will update ASAP! ~Moony
You have captured the essence of Harry's internal confusion so well. Snapes inner monologue is amazing.
Why am I concerned? In my opinion, the world would be much better off without yet another arrogant Potter. He pondered this a moment and then sighed to himself, admitting that the boy did seem to be at least a small percentage less conceited than his father before him.
That passage just has him down to a tee.
It always amazes me how so one so young manages to observe and capture emotions so well. Phenomenal as usual.
Author's Response: Hi Rivah! I was worried about the Snape part so I am so relieved to know that you think it is IC. And thanks so much for the compliment. Unfortunately, I have a lot of experience with... interesting emotions, to say the least. Anyhoo, thanks a ton and I will see (sorta...) you soon! ~Moony
very nice story. i like how you turned his world upside down and what not. look forward to the rest of the story
Author's Response: Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it. : ) ~Moony
oh its so exciting when you dont know whats going to happen!! I love it, cant wait for the next chapter
Author's Response: Hee! I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed it. I love the mystery factor, so it is nice to see that someone else does too. Thanks a bunch and I will update soon! ~Moony
Really? A really new chapter! Hehehehe.
NO HARRY! NO! NO! NO! VOLDY LOOKS LIKE SNAKE! HOW CAN YOU TRUST A DEFORMED WALKING SNAKE WITH RED EYES? VOLDY IS CALLED TEH DARK LORD! HOW CAN YOU BELIEVE DARK IS OKAY! DON'T YOU REMEBER THE DARK AND LIGHT SIDE?
You're so stupid. But yay, Snape! I actually enjoyed reading about his internal conflict and actions. You had him in character and he was just as severe, but you showed human emotion. The type we rarely see. Oh, I'll have to see the banner. If I make one correction will you be offended? I hope not.
"the stupid rat would certainly tell him that he wanted to know."
I think you meant to write, 'what'. Just a suggestion :D Anyway, I think this may be my favourite chapter out of the entire story so far. STUPID HARRY!
Author's Response: Yeah, really. ; ) And no, he unfortunately can't remember. *sighs* I had Snape IC? REALLY?!?!?!?!? I was so worried about that! Whew. Thanks for that, hun. : ) Oh, I did mean 'what', thanks! I'll change that in a few minutes. And I am glad that you liked it so much. Thanks a ton for reviewing and yes, STUPID HARRY! ; P ~Moony
this is all been just so brilliant, i have read the whole lot so far, wow wow, this is the kind of Au that only a certain kind of peole can think of, and a damn sight better than a lot of the mad ideas i have seen on this and othersites, just one question, why did this get deleted in the first place?
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I know the kind of stories you mean... *shivers* Anyhoo, I did try really hard to keep it as close to canon and not-your-typical-AU as possible, so it is awesome to know that it paid off! : ) As for why... well, I joined in October and am not internet savvy when it comes to rules and terms, so I didn't know it but I was one of the spammers you heard about. I was deleted, but not banned so I could get a new profile. But, when my account was deleted, I lost my 120 favorites, my page long bio (with my story news on it, if you want to know the progress of this story), and this. But, with the help of one of the mods, it is back up quicker than it would have been normally and everything is back to normal as everyone moves on. So, yeah, that is the story. Thanks again and I hope you like the next chapter! ~Moony
heyyy cool loved it cant wait for ch9.......one q though y didnt harry scar hurt him when he saw voldy he could sense hi emotions right?? anyway awsome storyy againnnnnn :))))
Author's Response: Thanks! Well, in answer to your question, did you ever notice that Harry's scar doesn't always burn when he sees Voldy? After all, look at how he can fight without it bothering him! It comes to play in teh next chapters, but only when Voldy is feeling mad. Good observation, thouigh! I have studied the books waaaaaaaaaaay too much to get that wrong! Thanks again and I hope you like the next chapter! ~Moony
I loved this story before and still do. I can hardly wait for Chapter Nine!
Author's Response: I'm so happy! Chapter nine will be in queue soon. I hope you like it; it's the first new one since November! Yay! Anyway, thanks so much and see you soon! ~Moony
Moony, we're both fans of Nuw. Thus, I deserve an update, right? RIGHT?
Author's Response: YUP! HA!!!!!!! Sorry, I couldn't resist. ; P Another Nuw fan; where would the world be without us? Hehe. An update? Of course! Soon. I want to make you squirm a bit first. ; P Thanks for the review! ~Moony
I am thoroughly enjoying this fic...Lupin cried! That's so sad!
Author's Response: I am so happy you are enjoying it! It makes me glad that it isn't for nothing. And yeah, he did cry. I am a firm believer that he isn't in canon enough, so I thought I would include him a lot here! Hee. Thanks so much for reviewing! ~Moony
aww....that's sad...Curse you Lord Voldemort!!!!!!!!...Now that THAT'S over with....i love this story. Update soon please!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am very happy to know that you are enjoying it so far. And yeah, he needs to be cursed. That may not happen, so maybe he just needs a nap. It helps; it really does. ; ) Thanks for reviewing and see you next time! ~Moony
The tension is rising, DUN DUN DUN!
Sorry, that was irrational.
Author's Response: Not at all. I am glad you like it. Thanks for the review! ~Moony ; )
ohmigosh! please write another chapter!!!! i gotta know what happens to Harry!
Author's Response: I am glad you are so enthusiastic! I have chapters up through 12 written and ready, so I will post chapter 9 soon. I want to build some suspense first. ; P If you want updates as to this fic, my profile has a news section at the bottom. Thanks so much for the review, lily_evans5! ~Moony
finally! i believe this is where it was at before it was deleted!! right? i hope so cause this story is TOO good to wait for!!! as always, hermione fills ron in on the important stuff, but hey, isn't that her job? lol! cnt wait for chapter 9!!
Author's Response: Right you are, pammiez_x3! This is the last chapter you have seen. Chapter nine is the one that was in the queue when this was deleted. Gr. But yeah, I thought the Hermione thing would get a couple of giggles. Hehehe. I am glad you are so excited and I hope you enjoy the next chapter. Thanks for reviewing, hun! ~Moony : )
Moony, I am yet again amazed by your talent. I love how Snape reacts to Harry calling him "Sir". The way you show everyones range of emotions so well, you have maturity well beyond your young years.
Author's Response: Thanks so much, Rivah! I thought that that would be a good piece of humor to put in there. I didn't want it to get too dark, so I'm glad it isn't. *blushes* That is quite a compliment. Thanks! I really had to work at it, but I am so glad that you like it. It helps to let me know that it is worth it. Thanks so much for the review! Take care! ~Moony : )
Wait, Hold the phone, whatever you want to say, I almost forgot!!! SNAPE IS A MEMBER OF THE ORDER!!!! *bursts into relieved sobs* Harry is as good as rescued!! Snape IS a good guy!! I am SOOO proud of our Half-Blood Prince! *sniff*
Author's Response: *smirks* IS he as good as rescued? Or is he stuck? Or is there a third road? Hehehehe. You will find out soon, hun. Thanks for reviewing and do tell me if the suspense is too much. I can't promise to do anything about it but... ; P ~Moony
I believe in that, too, and also that Snape is a good guy, but his story won't be as good an ending as Harry's. Well, he might escape Voldy's wrath, but no one on either side will trust him again.
Author's Response: I know. Actually, in PoA, there is a bit of proof that Snape is, in fact, a good guy. Skim around when Harry is under the table in the three broomsticks and you will find it. I hope he doesn't die in canon... Oh well. Thanks for the review, hun! Glad you are enjoying this. ~Moony : )
Ooh, ooh, I DID! I DID! *jumps up and down, raises hand*
Author's Response: Yay for you! *throws cookie at computer and stares blankly when it doesn't get e-mailed to you* Darn. And that was a really good cookie too... Oh well. I am glad you seem to be enjoying this story so much! Thanks for the review!!!! ~Moony
*is biting nails* Yeah, I know, bad habit, but I can't help it!!!
Author's Response: I used to bite my nails, but I stopped. Well, I had help, though. The first step is admitting you have a problem. ; ) Anyway, the next chapter is in the queue, so I hope it will be up before the end of the weekend. Thanks so much for the review Pottergirl! Go paint your nails; it helps, it really does! ~Moony
