Chapter: Reflections

At least he is loved. We all love you Neville! So you say I will like book three, eh? I wonder what that will be like, it's all about Sirius. Hmm, something to look forward too!

Author's Response: I'm afraid I can't tell you anything yet! I may write a couple of clues and details into Book 2. In fact there has been one obscure clue given already, but you might not have spotted it!

Chapter: The Seeker and the Secret

Okay, I've been reading this for a while and I just got an account, so I wanted to tell you how good this is! I always come checking for it, hoping that you added another chapter. Please update it soon!

Author's Response: Thanks, it's great to have enthusiastic readers. I've now finished writing Book 1 (just in time for the DH release!) and will update continuously while I make a start on Book 2.

Chapter: The Seeker and the Secret

I see that Hermione still took offence to what Ron said. That's great! Ron and Hermione are my favorite ship! I still think that Harry and Ron should re-form the Marauders. The Wealsey twins could join or maybe even a new character. I also think that Harry should get in trouble for something so Lily sends a Howler with James and Sirius in the background congratulating him or something. With Lily, James and Sirius being alive and out of prison, I think we should see some more of them. Great story and don't forget about Remus too! Update soon!

Author's Response: I can't say much for now, as I have a lot of secrets and plot twists coming that I've only hinted about till now, but I think you'll love Book 3 when it comes!

Chapter: The Third Floor Corridor

That was a good way for Neville to find Fluffy. I want to see something from James, Lily, Sirius, Lupin or anyone! A letter, a Howler, or something! Put a little Marauder in it, make Harry and Ron the new Marauder's with Neville, Dean and Seamus! That would be brilliant! Great story by the way.

Author's Response: I'm glad you're enjoying it. As for the Marauders, trust me I've got them all figured out, but I'm afraid you won't see any of them in Book 1. Of course, by the time we get to Book 3, there'll be more than enough of them!

Chapter: Learning Curve

Aw, Harry is a little James! I want to see some more of him, maybe Neville could read a letter from Sirius or something. I want to see Harry with his parents sometime! *Gasp* as I just realised, will Ron and Hermione be secretley in love with each other? I sure hope so!

Author's Response: Yes, Harry without responsibility or the burden of being the boy who lived is much like his father. Ron and Hermione, well that will be a *very* long story of course. You won't see any ships in the story until Book 4 - a long way off.

Chapter: The House on Preston Road

It's great. A very different point of veiw. Fantastic! A lot of people were probably wondering what would it be like if it was the other way around. Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you. I hope a lot of people do wonder, the more readers the better!

Author's Response: Well, I always figured it was a fairly simple spell that anyone could pick up, it doesn't sound very sophisticated. And I've always got the excuse of Hermione's cleverness! Glad you like the story.

Chapter: Advice from a Hat

Great Chapter!
As I always say, excellent characterization of Neville. He seems like a perfect 11 year old Neville, scared witless and shy. There are some places where you could have used a few more comma's but I'm not here to pick this apart. I liked how you made Harry and Ron friends, as they probably would have, both coming from wizarding families. I can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: Thank you again! I decided Harry and Ron have known each other since they were about 6 or 7, but more on that down the road. Oh, and I do know punctuation isn't my strong point but I hope it won't diminish your enjoyment.

Chapter: Advice from a Hat

Wow. I could sit and think for hours, days even, and not find a better word for it. Wow. This story is fantastic! I, personally, would like to see more Slytherin action, but that's just my opinion. Anyway, I really liked it. It's a very neat idea. Keep on writing!

Author's Response: Wow, thank you! There is some "Slytherin action" in Book 1, mostly from Draco, but you get to see Snape in full flow in the next chapter.

Chapter: On the Hogwarts Express

Great chapter!
I really like the words, "grudging trolley," as though the trolley has a mind of its own. You've got great attention to detail in your writing such as with this.

I really enjoyed this chapter, and you write Neville's POV great! I can't wait to see what else happens once they get to Hogwarts! You've got me wondering how different things would be were it Neville instead of Harry. Great story. I'll be eagerly awaiting the next chapter.

Author's Response: I really liked this chapter myself, it begins to set up the real story. I'm glad you're enjoying it. From personal experience, I wouldn't be surprised if railway trolleys really did have a mind of their own!

Chapter: The Alley of Surprises

Great chapter!
I really liked how Neville got the wand, it makes sense that he would. Your subtle changes (as well as the big change as Neville for Harry) are excellent and very enjoyable. I really liked how Neville's Gran shooed Draco off, it seems like something she'd do, treat him like a stray cat or something. I look forward to the next chapter!

Author's Response: Thanks. Neville needs the wand for later, of course, plus it'll be useful for him to have a better wand than the hand-me-down he has in the original. Gran's harsh, but she knows who the "right sort" are.

Chapter: Past Scars

Sonorus! you have done it again! You are a great writer and I hope that you keep it up. I guess lots of people have had this idea but I've never read a fanfic on it. Well done

Author's Response: I've plenty of chapters written so far, so it'll keep coming. I did have a brief check around to see if anyone had done this before I started and it didn't seem so. Still waiting for someone to correct me!

Chapter: Past Scars

I particularly like your characterisation of Dumbledore, he seems very true to JK Rowling's world. The more I read this the more I want to read more! As I've mentioned already, great "what if." I'm glad you chose to write this, and you write very well. I'm hooked.

Author's Response: Glad you like Dumbledore, I was a bit worried about him. I'm finding certain characters easier to write for than others, and Dumbledore is a harder one, as he has to deliver important information without being boring. Chapter 3, 'The Alley of Surprises', is going in now.

Chapter: The House on Preston Road

What an excellent "what if!" I've been wondering if anyone had done this yet, and I really enjoyed how you wrote the Muggles' perspective of them for starters. Great chapter, I look forward to seing where you take this!

Author's Response: Thanks! As you may have guessed, chapter 1 was slightly inspired by one of my favourite HP chapters 'The Riddle House' where the locals discuss the strange goings on there. It seemed a great way into the story.

Chapter: Past Scars

*whistles* You have a good one here! Can't wait to read more! Will Neville make his own version of the Trio? The same people, but it's Neville and not Harry as Ron's chum, and Neville and not Harry who dates Ginny? Will we see Lily and James, or are they in St. Mungo's? So many questions, one story to tell it in. KEEP IT UP!! 10/10 UPDATE!!!

Author's Response: Thanks for your support! As for your questions, keep reading, some will be answered fairly soon, though others not for a very long time! The plan is to write all 7 books.
