Still keeping my fingers crossed that you'll get around to continuing and hopefully finishing this. I also agree with the last reviewer: it's obviously your choice, but I personally hate to see Hermione being bashed. Obviously we have already learned of the separation charmed so to some extent she is being manipulated, so Ron's bashing of Dumbledore should have appealed to her reason and logic. There's no way the canon Hermione could ignore that unless she was magically manipulated (loyalty and memory charms/potions) as she was never motivated by money. Though I have seen a few fics do it, I believe she wouldn't be a Gryffindor if she was swayed by the promise of knowledge, she wouldn't sell out her only true friend for a few books either.
On top of that, my analysis of her personality is that she obsesses over books, learning, and knowledge because of her lack of friends in her early life. She retreated to fantasy to hide her insecurity, but she would never throw away Harry. We see that throughout OotP and in DH when she stays with him in the Forest of Dean. You could bring up her absolute faith in authority and the written word, but Lockhart should have broken the latter and the Ministry, Umbridge, and the DA the former. Plus, she's no Pettigrew - motivated by fear - so that couldn't be taken into account either. Of course, I also discount a bunch of her actions in HBP as I've always maintained that the entire thing was such a departure from their characters that it had to be manipulations by Dumbledore and Molly and/or Ron and/or Ginny.
As you've firmly placed Ron on the 'not manipulating' side, and Dumbledore as the 'Evil Light Lord', I truly hope you don't try to get us to hate Hermione. She needs saving as much as Harry.

Please tell me Dumbledore has used magic on hermione, while a bookworm she has one thing that as point out in the first book most wizards don't have logic. The way she behaves if rather off when Harry is involved, and Dumbledore fixing it so she doesn't notice and blindly follows 'for the greater good' seem more like it than a lack of common sense. something she should have.
But other than that please keep writing, want to know what happens next.

I almost choked on my tounge trying not to wake anyone when the prank was revealed and I read the twins' and Molly's comments. Very well done!
I look forward to more of this story.

The twins are so dead when Hermione get her hands on them.

SG-1, even more paranoid than usual. NID, even more desperate to infiltrate SGC than before. Enemies on all sides, and I have a feeling you're just starting to introduce all the players.
I'm shocked this idea hasn't really been done before.
| Alex 3/6/13 . chapter 16
Great story. Please continue. Will there be some love, maybe gay love and Harry will be pregnant. ;) Please consider and continue the story.

Here's a link to one that includes the hero list:
Great chapter as always! I very much look forward to the next one.
| Pointer3109 2/23/13 . chapter 16
Interestingly, I had never considered the real Hamunaptra to be anything other than Indian. Why, I don't remember. I probably ran across a reference to it way back in school.
Great chapter. Of course, by now I needed to reread the story, which held together fairly well. A lot of serials don't stand up to being read all at once.
Till next time.

I enjoyed the fic very much. Thank you for sharing this with us. I am looking forward to the next chapter. Keep up the good work :D

your fic is interesting so far, but some things conflict. its like things that were written in one chapter were forgotten about and changed/forgotten about, rewritten in the next chap or section.
