That was a good chapter. You may have to wait before you start getting more reviews because people will have to reread the story to realize what has happen before. But it was a good chapter and continued the story well. I can't wait to read the end.
Author's Response: thanks for the compliment. and yeah i realize that i won't be getting a lot of reviews seeing as i'm taking so long. my goal right now is to get it in.
This is truely a well written and well thought out story. I have really enjoyed reading your view point of this story. I can't wait to find out what happens next. And I look forward to the reactions of Harry's friends when they find out the truth. I exspecially can't wait to see what Harry does to Draco Malfoy. Just the anticipation alone is nerve racking. Please continue to update this story on a regular basis. I look forward to reading more of your work.
I know that I have reviewed once before asking for some type of an update. But now that I have read this story again I have to admite that this is actually a great place to end the story. It closes out rather well showing that Harry and Ginny are trying to get back together. It also shows that Lily is willing to step in to help rectify the estrangement between Harry and Brian. The only thing that is not really addressed to what becomes of Harry's attempt to become a Master of the Wand. Though you have to have alittle lee-way for the readers imagination. Overall a great story with a very possible ending already on file though I would not say no to another Update.
Great Story I can't wait to read what Happen next. I hope that you did not abandon it. I really enjoy your writing style.
Well written. Dobby has always been one of my favorite characters. I am so glad that someone lead him to the happiness that he so richly deserves.
That was a very good chapter. I perticularly liked the part where Molly was giving Ginny "The Talk." Especially since nobody seemed to want to listen to what Ginny had to say. I do sort of feel sorry for Harry for the next time they see him though.
Author's Response: yeah, it might be a little rough on him, but I think he was already feeling out of place as it was. Thanks for commenting!
That was a great Chapter. Though one major error just screamed out at me. The Fact that Ginny has never rode in a muggle cab. Maybe you were implying that she has never been alone with Harry in one. But she has indeed rode in one. I know for sure that they rode to Kingscross in a taxi in book 4. But other than that. It was a really good store. I can't wait for the rest.
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it :) Are you sure? I honestly don't recall that at all - where is that in GoF?
I just looked the taxi bit up for you it is in Chapter Eleven "Aboard the Hogwarts Express" page 162 American version. But as I said it was a good chapter all in all. I look forward to reading more.
Author's Response: it's interesting that dozens of people have previously read this chapter and not one person commented on that. Thanks for pointing it out. I don't know that I won't make similar mistakes in the future.
This is a great story and a very enjoyable read I can't wait to finish the story. I look forward to more.
Author's Response: Thanks very much. I'm almost done the next chapter. cj
Thanks for the update. I have enjoyed reading this story. I do hope that you continue with Malfoy's leasons. I think it would be most interesting to see how they would interact without a third party to run interference.
Author's Response: You're very welcome. I am so pleased you are enjoying my story. Yeah, um, about the lessons. I hadn't planned on writing any more about them. The thing is - the only thing I had to say about the two of them, I have already said - the line I wanted Harry to say to Malfoy was the "and I saw how much you hated it" one. Unless I get a brainwave, I don't have any ideas for more. But you never know ... cj
Teddy Lupin's first year at Hogwarts. Canon-compliant. Nominated for a 2008 QSQ for best Post-Hogwarts story.
The war is over, and all is well, they say, but the wounds remain unhealed. Bitterness divides the Houses of Hogwarts. Can the first children born since the war's end begin a new era, or will the enmities of their parents be their permanent legacy?
I have truely enjoyed reading your work and have to say that the ending you choose closed out the story well. I hope that they have an easier year for now on. I look forward to reading any more that you may decide to write. I wish you all the luck you can get for all of your future endeavors.
I have enjoyed reading your story and I think that it has been really well done. Though I would make a suggestion. The story had a great flow from chapter one to chapter 72. But when you included the Epilouge it had a jarring effect that negated the rest of the story. I would suggest that you include a prolouge that has the image of Harry coming into a room and sitting down at a desk to begin his tale. Then I believe that you could tie in this chapter much more smoothly. Otherwise people will ask "When did Remus, Tonks, and Fred die? It was not part of your story."
Author's Response: I suppose it all comes down to whether you like a thought provoking twist at the end of a tale or not. Obviously, I do. I confess that I forgot to add a note about DH,/i> spoilers in my author's prenote before the sequel which would help considerably. (I have since correct this thanks to your insightful words.) You'll be pleased that the sequel starts and ends in much the same way you suggested. Sometimes we are on the same wavelength, it appears.
I have been pleasantly surprised by this story. I have see in the most recent several times now and have avoided it for no other reason than it just did not appeal to me. I now realize the mistake that I have made. And I do sincerely appologize. This is very well written though I do have one suggestion. There have been several instance where the story breaks off for several weeks at a time. I understand the restains put on a story such as this but I felt like I was missing something important that happen during the break. Either that or I was missing a chapter or two.
Author's Response: Went back and reviewed everything and there are definitely not any chapters that I accidentally skipped when uploading. Your comment gave me a few panicked moments though. Please tell me where you think the gaps are too glaring as perhaps I need to go back and fiddle with my transitional passages. As far as the break between Harry and Ginny’s confrontation at the Burrow and Harry’s return to Hogwarts, I purposely skipped those events as Harry will retell them a little later in several flashbacks. I also opted out of doing a Christmas dinner/gift exchange at the Burrow as it had already been done in so many of the previous books. After all, no guests are invited this year and Harry had already whinged enough about not being allowed to do any shopping of his own. Am very pleased to hear you gave my story a chance after all. Hope you’ll continued to be entranced as events continue to unfold.
Excellent Job. This is by far one of the best sorting hat verses that I have read. Keep up the good work.
Author's Response: Well thank you! I think it\'s the first time I\'ve ever attempted to write a Sorting Hat song, so I\'m glad that it ended up well. I really appreciate your review. Thank you again! ~GG
I have truely enjoyed your writing. I look forward to the next Chapter. I can't wait to see the reaction of Moony, Padfoot, and Wormtail, to that last line. That should be interesting.
Author's Response: Hehe, I did have fun writing that section. I'll post it as soon as possible. Thanks for your review :)
That was really touching. And very well writen. I believe that true love such as Harry's and Ginny's would have never ended and just continued on to the next world and They would have most deffently have been greated with open and loving arms of those that have pasted before them.
Author's Response: Thanks for the kind words. Its always nice to know when someone finds what you have written touching. True love shouldn't end with "death do us part" and friends will welcome each other beyond death.
you have to be very careful about how you incorporate the original work. and when you do make sure you give the credit where it is due. the remainder of the chapter was really good. but as others said make sure you can develop your characters beyond that of their fathers and the oringal story or else it will seem like you are just repeating what was already done. I really look forward to reading how you develop as a writer. And I look forward to getting lost in a good story.
Lily Luna Potter is given History of Magic homework to write about the life and achievements of one Harry Potter, and (being the abnormal weirdo that she is) she decides to write it in verse. Sadly, Lily is labouring under the delusion that she is a talented poet, even though her rhyming is almost as good as her mother’s (as exhibited in CoS)…
Well this is what she wrote! Professor Binns won’t know what’s hit him...
A millon billion trillion Thank Yous to lunirina, who saved this from the horrific state it was in!
That was great. I loved the way you incorporated the plots from all seven years. But you also with held things that Harry would not want everybody to know about. Showing that Lily had questioned her father. I look forward to reading more of your work. And to see what else you can come up with.
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm currently writing a story about Lily and her various chums, so check it out when it's up!
A great little look into the interworkings of a father's mind. I liked the way you incorperated all the little tells that people don't really know that they have but others can see.
Author's Response: Thank you. After seven kids (including Fred and George) arthur must be clever and subtle, or be driven crazy, -N-
