Chapter: The Wall of Questions

Yes, this needed to be that long.

It certainly seems as if Dudley is changing, and it is believable in the sense that his parents catering to his every whim was what made him nasty to begin with. Now that he is having to come into his own a bit, he has a spine, not just a stick to hit people with. They are lucky he is not more like Snape - were he that unforgiving of the Weasley brothers, this would all be a lot harder for the Deadalus and Hestia.

I wonder if Dudley is a Wizard and this is why the door sealed itself?

I like the little moment of shame you gave him, where he feels badly about making fun of Harry about Cedric's death, but I am also a little surprised that he is not a bit astounded at all the fuss about his cousin, who was, after all, probably nothing special in Dudley's eyes to begin with, except for having saved him from the dementors.

I think he's just put more effort into getting all these bits of new straight than he's put into all his previous years of schooling combined.

I am really enjoying this and hope you update soon!

Author's Response: I'm glad someone mentioned that he should be more surprised! That was one thing that I tried to put into this chapter that just didn't come off right. It's actually part of why the wait was so long. :/ Obviously, he would begin to understand how important Harry is from what Dedalus and Hestia have been telling him, but not to the degree that it is portrayed in the articles. Anyway, I'm done ranting, so thanks for the review! :)

You know, I thought that your portrayal of the Prophet articles was too factual, too serious, out of character.

Until ... until, that is, you inserted the following:
When Ginny Weasley, a fourth-year whose ankle was broken in the fray, was asked for a comment, she replied, “You dunderheads should have listened to Harry a year ago!”

ROTFL. Excellent chapter, I look forward to the next update, with impatience

Author's Response: thanks, I'm glad you like it!

Wow...Dudley must be very confused!
I'm glad he feels sorry about teasing Harry about Cedric!
Waiting to see how Vernon and Petunia will interact with Augusta Longbottom...

Author's Response: I'm sure he is! Thanks for reviewing! And, I love your username, by the way! It's so funny!

Oi it's been way too long, so thanks for the extra long chapter! It was really good. I'm fascinated by Dudley trying to learn all he can. It was a surprise that Petunia and Vernon weren't dogging his every step. I just can't imagine what's going through Dudders mind right now, but it's really good to see. Great Chapter! Please don't make us wait so long.

Author's Response: I know, it's been so long! I'm trying to fire out a few more chapters before school starts. I'm glad you liked it and thanks for reviewing!

Chapter: The Wall of Questions

As i was reading through the fic i wrote a few things down mysel, here goes:-

Sweets, not candy.
Philosophers, not sorcerers.
I am offended by the northaners crack, it is not very nice, since i come from manchester and have been called a dirty northern basta--.
speaking ill of his parents, that's hiarious, i have never heard anyone ever say that in britian.
And Ginny would never say dunderheads, what is a dunderhead anyway??

Author's Response: As you probably guessed, I am an American, so I don't catch all of those. But thanks for pointing them out, I'll edit that. As far as the Northerners crack goes, I didn't know until I read an article in the HP Lexicon called 'Where are the Longbottoms from?' that England had any sort of geographical stereotype. The Lexicon article said Vernon Dursley would despise someone with a northern accent on principle, which inspired what he said about Augusta Longbottom. My opinions don't coincide with what I (and the writer of that article) expect Vernon Dursley's opinion to be. I wasn't aiming to offend Northerners, and actually think Vernon is the one who comes out looking bad from that joke. So I'm sorry that I offended you, but that is not what I was aiming for.

Chapter: The Wall of Questions

That was an interesting recap of Harry & Neville's histories, from the perspective of an interested outsider. It was well done, complete with a few missteps and confusions which an interloper would likely make.

So, who was the 2nd non-Muggle? Right!

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you thought it was realistic!

Wow. I really like this fic. There aren't many fics about Dudley, especially not ones where Dudley turns out to be good. So, does Dudley meet Harry? Hope they do, and that they get along on good terms from now on. Awesome fic, I love it.--Nadia

Author's Response: Thanks a lot! I guess you'll just have to wait to find that out...

Chapter: Septum Aperio

uhhhh, I like it!!! But how would Hestia know Mufflato? I thought it was secrety, sice no one knew the prices spells, exept for levecorpus, since that one was used so frequently....but I'm probably wrong....
Cool story!

Author's Response: I hadn't thought about that. I'm going to assume that Snape taught the Order certain spells that would come in handy. (But certainly not all of them.)

Just shoot Vernon and say you have no idea how it happened. It was a good chapter. Good thing Neville is at school. Though he and Dudley might actually get along if Dudley keeps changing. 'Course Augusta will put up with nothing from Vernon and maybe she'll just hex him into the next millenium and save us all.

Author's Response: Gran Longbottom is a pretty feisty character, this will be fun! Thanks for reviewing!
