Just a person who enjoys excellent readings especially those about HP and friends/enemies. I have to say that there are some extremely talented people on this site. I enjoy the writings immensely and wish many successes to the talented individuals.
Summary: Harry is home, Sirius is dead and Harry has a long summer ahead to worry about the prophecy. He meets a stranger, learns more about his parents and develops a plan to overcome Voldemort. This is a complete novel-length story. I think you'll find this a gripping tale to the very end. Reviewers on other sites have given this a 10 out of ten.
I have read ahead on the chapters so I thought I would start my reviews now. Brilliant start. I got an initial impression of Peabody and I turned out to be completely off base. Wonderful writing, great grammer with excellent follow through. Love it.
This concept rocks. Very surprising that Harry put trust in Peabody so quickly. This story is flowing great.
Wonderful chapter. Very interesting characters. A controlled vampire. Sweet. Awesome story.
Nice description of Voldy. Very interesting story lines opening up. Severus has a girlfriend woohoo. Severus is one of my most favorite characters.
You have caught Harry so in character. Always ready to jump without thinking. The story is evolving so nicely. Kudos to you.
Didn't care too much for the seeming come-on Hannah was giving Harry. What is so interesting is the way Harry is testing his new skill. Also well planned story angles. Rock On!!
Harry exploding again..So Harry. Super interchange between Severus and Harry.
Wonderful chapter. So much explained.
Severus and Harry peers. What a concept. No matter what happens, to me Lucius and Draco Malfoy will always be pigs. Very descriptive chapter.
Very nice. Love the contact lenses concept.
Any Hannah/Harry shenanigans put to rest, Severus outed, any Harry/Hermione relationship squelched., Ron back with the team, does it get any better than this?
Again another very descriptive and enlightening chapter.The animagus plot line may get very interesting. Are we to guess that Harry will be a panther animagus as fierce as or more fierce than "Tom Riddle."
Very nice slap. Seems like the author has offered up another possible plot. Hermione was magnificent. All thumbs up.
Summary: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, a blond Weasley. It's Harry's sixth year. Voldemort is back, yet strangely quiet. A second prophecy. This is my version of what happens next. The whole book is written, along with all of year seven. I will post as fast as I can get the chapters past the moderators.
Story is now complete. Look for the sequel, I will be posting the first chapter tonight 6-2-05, and it usually takes 4-5 days for the mods to approve it. The title of the sequel is, Harry Potter and the Unlocked Mind.
This is so long after the fact (5/21/11) but after having held it in during this story and many others, I must comment on it now. I know that most readers think its cute or cool about how aggressive and hateful (yes hateful) Ginny Weasley is. I don't think it's cool at all. There is no reason that any person should have to be afraid of anyone else. This is not the first story in which Ginny is portrayed as a spoiled, aggressive, wilful person. I really don't care for her and her mannerisms. Oh, oh I guess I should be careful or she'll rip my throat out. Pulease. The Ginny character just seems to be a very nasty beotch. If she wasn't a Weasley, who would really be her friend? Rant over. I love your storyline.
OMG what an amazing chapter. You threw some of everything in and it works. I still can't reconcile Ginny being that powerful but everything else was excellent. You rock..... but since this review is being written years after you published this story, you must already know that. Kudos.
Author's Response: Ah yes. Well, Harry isn't exactly the nicest guy on the block either. Not in my story and not in JKR's stuff either. Suffice it to say I may have over done Ginny a bit. But then maybe not. She's gotta be tough to deal with Harry and all those brothers. And really, it is almost all facade with the girl. Crack it and get in and she'll die for you.
Applause, applause, applause.
Author's Response: This system really confuses me. Especially as I am not on here regularly anymore. Suffice ti to say my responses are not exactly matched up with your reviews. Suffice it to say, that after all this time I still love to hear from readers.
Summary: Harry, Ron and Hermione survived the Final Battle with Voldemort and now work for the Ministry of Magic. Emotionally scarred, they are living their lives to the best of their abilities. Now, a new threat rears its ugly head. Lord Malfoy. This time they have a new friend to help in the battle between good and evil. Just like JKR, I start light and end up dark... lots of humor, intrigue and romance in between. This is a delightful romp through the Potterverse. Enjoy the ride! (Written Pre HBP)
I'm still reading and i love it.
I like this girl and at some point I know she is going to knock Draco Lalfoy silly. YAY. Good story.
So in this storyline Tonks is dead and Ginny is dead, Fred is alive. What else do we have in store. Are the Weasleys ok? There hasn't been any mention of Arthur and Molly. Well I guess this isn't really a Harry/ Weasleys story though. Is it. I'll read on.
