| Person 1/3/09 . chapter 17
I love the story, but anogized has a z, too. What do you have against the poor letter? :)
| Person 1/3/09 . chapter 15
Great chapter! Harry has a very unique form of stupidity, and you do a great job of capturing it. I love characters in this fanfic even more than i loved them n the books! Nice twist with Snape, even though I like him evil (One of the reasons why hate the Deathly Hallows). Anyway, your a great writer!
| Person 1/3/09 . chapter 14
Hello. This is a really great story. Its way better than the Deathly Hallows, which I couldn't stand. Just to let you know, realize is spelled with a z. Keep it up! You've got a lot of talent!

Eh...this story is really well written and matches JKR's humor quite well in certain parts. But I cringed reading this last chapter - did you really just turn Ginny into super-Ginny? Her parents NEVER told her beforehand that she could do wandless magic as a child? None of her older siblings were conscious enough to notice what their youngest sister did? AND she was able to do wandless magic again without even practicing? Boy, Ginny must be pretty dumb not to realize before now that she can do wandless magic if it comes so easily to her. It was a highly improbable turn of the story. I'll keep on reading the next chapter or so, but I hope her abilities don't immediately play too prominent a role.

| AlyGranger 7/7/08 . chapter 30
OMG! I just finished your story and it was amazing. I know I took a really long time to do it. I've been busy again. Anyway, it was amazing. I loved the epilogue. Harry and Ginny are so perfect together the way you wrote it. And all of their children are so funny. You really managed to cover everything in the books and in your story. Every little detail was summed up and really interesting. This is one of my favorite fanfics ever! We need to e-mail more often. Talk to you soon!

There's nothing more to review, but I'm glad I'm in bold, and several people I recognize (especially Blonde-Titch!) are as well...:)
I expect review replies. And I will write back on facebook, really!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA oh, amazing, "an overcome Oliver Wood weeping on his shoulder", so typical...brilliant.
DUDE. I haven't read this part yet, I'm on the sentence about the full moon (I like to guess things)...he killed only the werewolf part of Remus? So how then did Greyback die? Didn't he also "die" while in werewolf form? Was it because it was not only Voldemort's curse (the Horcrux created by him), but a part of Voldemort's soul itself?
LOL, Dudley having a magical son...that's fantastic. I did wonder what happened to the Dursleys...and what about Draco Malfoy? And Lucius? I'd be curious to know what happened to them...
The ending is wonderful and I'm sad that this story is over. I think this is a fantastic addition to the HP canon (really...there can be 2 alternate editions of book 7).
P.S. I love the final sentence.
| autumnspices 5/30/08 . chapter 28
Oh yeah, I forgot about the werewolves...wow, EXCELLENT fight scene. Much more enjoyable than the book's, I have to say.
You know, this sounds really awful, but I think that was totally the death that Greyback deserved...and a great way to destroy the Horcrux.
As for your ending...
While I loved the ethical etc. decisions that were part of the last book-such as Narcissa lying about Harry being still alive, Harry deciding to go back into his body, etc., this is possibly a much more satisfying way of doing it...in a way, it implies still that he was the last Horcrux, since he had to fight with Voldemort's very soul and possibly sacrifice himself...
Beautiful, beautiful chapter. I applaud you. This is phenomenally written and I am not happy that Lupin is dead, but this is amazing anyway.

Ironic that someone whose name is so close to "algae" sent Neville a large plant-suit...:D
Somehow "Penwick" is the perfect name. Did you make it up? It works really well. Kind of like Tavington in The Patriot *sigh*
"Ron glanced sideways at Hermione and put his arm round her shoulders as they walked. “No, old Salazar Slytherin didn’t have very inspired taste in décor, did he?” he said jokingly. “Bones, darkness, snakes...kind of unoriginal...”" HA. Nice.
SWEET. I LOVE the ending.
You didn't make me miss lunch (notice the pause in between reviews), but I would have missed it for this...haha
Side note: If you actually wouldn't mind doing me a favor, look through the first few chapters of Winterstar and tell me if I should rewrite them...?
Okay, back to your fantastic story. Seriously. This is amazing. I'm kind of jealous.

"The aroma of slightly-singed turkey was wafting up the stairs as they emerged from the bedroom. “Mum’s never burned a turkey before,” said Ron, in a deeply significant way, as they made their way downstairs." The "deeply significant way" is so very JKR. Have I said before that I'm really really enjoying this? :)
You know, I think you've done a very human portrayal of Remus here. And the idea of therapeutic fighting is actually a good one.

Ha, you said *dreamless* sleep last chapter...hahaha, don't you love my editing job? :D
Oh yeah, animals can get in, yes? (past the Fidelius Charm, that is). Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. I would not have thought of that.
Also, brilliant move with the locket being destroyed...by snake venom, as was the diary. Nice.
What about Ron's bite? Didn't Arthur's bite bleed for a very long time? Why isn't Ron's doing the same thing?
"She looked so fierce with her uncombed hair straggling about her face that the room cleared remarkably quickly." Hahaha awesome
Yes, one Horcrux that's not Harry (which of course he doesn't know)...(the Harry-as-Horcrux was another bit I figured out in book 6...JKR did handle that one rather well.)
| autumnspices 5/30/08 . chapter 24
Do they have a way of concealing lights from the outside world? And things like fireplace smoke?
I don't quite get how the Fidelius Charm works. Does it mean that if they go outside, they can still be seen, but no one can find where they *live*? Wouldn't it be suspicious in the wizarding world if a building suddenly disappeared? If I could, I would ask JKR this...and as one brilliant fic asked, why can't one of the residents be the secret-keeper?
"“Mum! What if we’d been sleeping naked or something?” demanded Ron, who was fully pyjama-clad.
Mrs Weasley dumped the pile of bedding on the floor. “I should hope not, Ron, not when you’re sharing a bedroom with Hermione and your sister – now, everyone get dressed and downstairs as soon as you can, I’ve got too much to do today to hang around waiting for you lot.” And she bustled off." Hahahaha. Bloody fantastic. (I wish we used the word "bloody" in that way in America...*sigh*) (Also, in the U.S. it's "pajama", but we pronounce it kind of halfway between "pa" and "py"...)
Wow, I like the idea of the library...and he must have known SOME magic even if he did fail all his OWLs...lol.
