Summary: Nominated for the 2009 QSQ award for Best Male OC.

Harry's life is quiet now. He has a loving wife, a beautiful son, a career along side his best friend, and everything else he could ever want and never imagine having. But now, his career as an Auror will lead both him and Ron halfway around the world to investigate a mysterious school known only as the Skat-Hatokha Academy of Magic.

But from the beginning, something seems off. No one in the wizarding world has heard of this school, the board of directors can contact you, but you can't contact them, and the accepted students have all been in some trouble with the law and take their right to remain silent very seriously. Not to mention Lucius Malfoy's near obsessive interest in this case and his close involvement with the Ministry.

But as more time passes, the more the case begins to take on a life of its own, and not just for Harry.

Hey, it's almost the end of August. When is Nat starting school and telling us about it? Can't wait!

Author's Response: Nate will be there soon, don't you worry. He just has a thing or two he needs to take care of at home first.

Well, well, it seems like a secretive, manipulative mind is lurking around the corner. Thanks for the update.

Author's Response: Oh, that's a secret!

What a SHAMe that SHAM hasn't been updated recently. Poor Nat, who does get a poem from you on your LJ, well, he is still waiting to find out where he will go to school, since that building was scary.

Please, update.

Author's Response: well, thanks to your review, I have a renewed effort to finish the next chapter. It has a great deal happening in it, so it will be a very exciting one.

Update, please...

Author's Response: I'm working on it. Don't you worry. But as you can see, I have quite a few other stories I am currently working on.

You have some great culturally ocean crossing story here. Update please, we want to know what Nate is up to.

Author's Response: Nate has another groupie it seems. Well, I sure do my best to get the next chapter up as soon as possible.

Please continue this story. What is Lorelei up to? And Nat, is Nat going to skip school?

Author's Response: I actually just sent my next chapter to my beta, so you will know what Nate ane Lorelei are up to very soon.

Oh wow, oh wow, oh my God! So now, after a rough encounter with the aurors, Nate is actually looking them up? Harry is right, Nate might be a bit of a bum, but not a real hard core criminal. Was the jail in the US, or on a different continent?

Also, I wonder how you imagine intercontinental floo travel. It seemed somewhat complicated for floo lagged Harry and Ron, so how did Lorelei and Nate manage? [and do you need to hold little children on your lap when stepping into the floo fire, do they have bassinets ;=)]

Author's Response: Yeah, well Nate is still under a very strick probation. He has to play nice with law enforcement or...bad things happen. The jail is in the United States, but the kids aren't exactly sure where yet, but they will get some clues later. And yes, I do imagine international Floo is more complicated, and the details about it will be written into the next chapter. I'm glad you're reading and paying attention, though!

Excellent twists and turns.

One nitpick: England is 5 hours ahead of New York. I really doubt that you pictured the Potters and Weaslies going shopping on a Saturday morning at 5am, so the kids couldn't have left on Friday and met the aurors on Saturday at any normal hour, unless they had been wandering aimlessly for several hours. Just make sure you address that point in the next chapter.

Author's Response: I'm glad you like the chapter. But remember, they went to the Ministry first, and probably did wander around there aimlessly for a few hours, and I imagine they did take a fair amount of time on the International Floo Network. Then they wandered around Diagon Alley looking for a candy store, so I imagine it was about ten o'clock when Rae finally met up with Harry and Ginny.

It's been a while since you updated. I note that originally, this was nominated for a Quicksilver Award 2009. You have a great premise. Why not pick it up and develop it? Go, OliveOilMed, Go!

Author's Response: I do promise I'm working on it!

LOL every time another chapter comes out. Keep writing!

Author's Response: Sorry I've been away so long. I took a break for a few months due to personal crises, but I haven't stopped working on my stories. Keep your eyes peeled for another chapter soon!

Luna's latest dare is: I dare my creator (eh, well, the one who has resurrected me for this story) to publish the next chapter.

Challah and Pumpkin Juice by Calico
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 119]

Summary: Tzipporah Stein, a Jew living in Vienna, Austria on the eve of WWII, is shocked when she gets a letter telling her she is a witch. The volatile state of Europe as it waits for both a muggle and a wizarding war to begin has prompted Hogwarts to take in students from many countries. How will Tzipporah handle magic, mischief, and even a little romance while trying to be true to her religion and culture at the same time?

Date: 03/19/08 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter One: The Letter

What a great premise. Now that your second chapter is up, I am starting to recognize some of the lines you are drawing up. Seeing that they speak Yiddish, they are probably of Eastern European origin (German Jekkes wouldn't speak anything but German). The rabbi wearing a tallit on Friday night might also confirm that: chassidic rabbis do that, others not. Would you picture their family coming from the Eastern part of the by then defunct Austro-Hungarian empire, probably fleeing antisemitism and poverty, only to rediscover it the Nazi prewar Austria? How sad!

You do make Eliezer come thrice daily for services, which would make him quite Orthodox, but yet she goes to get the mail across the street *after* services. They seem somewhat inconsistent in their observance, though Vienese Orthodox (like other Jewish contemporaries of theirs) might easily allow themselves to ask such a thing of a child not yet bat mitzva.

I absolutely love your little details, such as the Kishefmakher Academy! That sounds like Jewish wizards had to set up their own school, perhaps because Nazi wizards booted them out of the regular local school?

I wonder, does their rabbi know that she is a makhsheife? Will you try to address the religious debate about witchcraft?

Can't wait for the next installment.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you like my story, but I\'m afraid everyone\'s expecting more of me than I can really offer. I\'m a reform Jew myself, so please be patient with my mistakes - I\'m doing some research to try and keep the story consistent with orthodox Judaism. But there will be times I slip up, so I\'m sorry in advance for that. As for the Yiddish words and \"little details\", they\'re my favorite things to add, and its nice to know other people appreciate them. I hope you keep reading!

Has the Traveller gone vacationing? Please update you excellent story.

Author's Response: So sorry. I will try to get it updated in the next couple days. It has been an extremely busy week for me.

Gripping, with a cliffhanger to boot. Will they mistakenly leave Fulver a few moments alone, exposing him to murder at the hand of Frederick?

Jean was preternaturally silent, moving like a ghost. He used the natural sounds and lighting of his surroundings to mask his presence. He breathed when the wind blew and blended into the shadows thrown off the wall.

While Jean has no magic, he surely would do well in concealment nonetheless.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. And as for the comment, yes, he most certainly would do well with concealment. People will get to see more of Jean's abilities in the sequel to this story, On the Road to Nurmengard, that is in the works.

Can we lobby for an update soon, please?

Author's Response: I'm so sorry for the wait. I thought I had updated the next chapter, but I was wrong. Thank you for reminding me. The next chapter is in the queue right now!

Gripping new story ark extension. I see you will keep us on the edge of our seats for quite some more chapters! Thanks! I greatly look forward to the next update.

Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review. This was actually the last chapter of the story, but there is a sequel in the works called On the Road to Nurmengard. I am working on the first chapter right now, so keep a lookout for it!

So Vicuous is fishy. Hmmm. When is his next appearance?

Author's Response: Vikious comes in again in chapter 24, which is coming very soon. I'm sorry for the delay and thank you for the review. I really appreciate it!
