I have been enjoying these 102 chapters of your fearlessly opinionated, artful, witty, and meticulous writing. I hope you feel better, Lion. It's gutwrenching to approach your 103rd and final chapter with the knowledge that you couldn't possibly have meant for it to end where it will. Still, free ice cream.

Very nice fic. In the beginning there was a bit of fandom clouding the story and making everything go well for Harry. I still see it a bit, but I'm happy to actually notice that the bad guys don't have bad ideas anymore either. They sure seem to be less lucky than the heroes, but the Maclaw venom takes care of that for Dumbledork, and Volderella isn't on the same level as the other two, tactically.

I love your Bellatrix!

I'm having a lot of fun with your story!

I just reread this story from the beginning. It took days, but I enjoyed every minute of it. It's nice going back and catching all the foreshadowing, now that I know what to look for.
I hope your muse leads you back here.

harry put six ashwinder eggs into various fires 40 or so chapters ago, and i remember 2 burnt up in the goblet of fire, but i don't think we got back to the other four.

You're rather extreme in your examples of how Dumbledore can't appreciate art, well past hyperbole and into nonsense. That he'd have no opinion on whether he likes Jackson Pollock or a kid's over eager finger painting better makes sense. Saying that he can't distinguish between a plaster of elephant crap and the Venus de Milo or that kid's finger painting and a Michaelangelo doesn't. There is an inherently attractive quality to realism and most people find normality to be beautiful. A taste for the exotic is actually pretty uncommon; so you could say he'd pick a Bob Ross as a much finer and more valuable work than a Picasso because emotive expression is meaningless to him. That would be believable, that he's blind and stupid isn't. Even if he's a utilitarian sociopath with no appreciation for the differences that make something beautiful or not he would be able to see patterns in how most people respond to things.
Music wouldn't be incomprensible either. Mozart was a mathematician you'll remember. Also the same thing as with art, he can tell what most people enjoy or even a specific person to model himself after and pretend to like the same things.

Hello, just wondering if you were ever going to actually get around to anything that anyone cares about? This story has been going in circles forever and appears to have progressed virtually no where. Hell at this point I think it might be closing in on word count when compared the actual series it was based on.
I ask because this seems to be something that is painfully consistent with stories you write, not unlike Chunin Exam Day. You write stuff, there seems to be an overarching plotline, and then the story just jumps the shark and hangs ten for like the next 50 chapters. What gives?

"The armies of India, having charged into Pakistan to finish off their hated foes, were caught in between the two powers, and the country was getting badly abused by both Russian and Chinese ground commanders ignoring her sovereign rights and maneuvering how they pleased, including over and across her territory as they wished."
Pakistan is an Islamic country (India being Hindu being the root of the problems between the two) so in your set up, Pakistan would have been hit with nukes and most likely India would not be sending (or even need to for that matter) their armies in.

Love the story, and i am looking forward to read more.
Hmm, i see you have added or mentioned some crossover potential for the stories, so i have a question.
Will you eventually add "Winx club" to the story as well, somewhere along the future, all the extra worlds you can add once you have added that one can only end up increasing the story size.
Keep up the good work.

Hello. As a fan of your story I was disappointed to read chapter 86 I think it was, when you gladly wrote about the "Islamist" countries as being nothing more than barbarians, later justifying that with a "they deserve it because of their behavior" - I am surprised that you can so easily disregard a large amount of people all under the representation of those that are nothing more than a minimal margin of muslims. If a caucasian male were to do something than surely he does not represent every caucasian male, does he? This is simply logic, and I fail to see how you justify such crude remarks. Your story is read by thousands of people. You have the potential to reach all of these people, both in a negative and a positive way, and so I am just disappointed that you would act like that. I will continue to read your story, as that is what it is; and you of course clearly owe me nothing. And having read through most of your author's notes you don't seem like the type that would change his views, but rather think them as the absolute right way. I do not expect you to understand or even respect Islam, only expecting you to respect the lives of 1/6 of the population of earth does not seem too much to ask - not for their actions either. But for their differences. For the potential of one man to be different than the other. It saddens me to see that you, who is in a position to spread love instead seek to spread prejudice and a harmful mentality to the more impressionable of your readers.

"Not even after I gave you a reminder/hint in all of the plant protection potions that Luna was collecting!"
Well, to be fair to all of us simpletons, you masked it pretty well by restating that Luna doesn't know why things are necessary just that they are, about half a dozen times. Tree enhancements were made to look like one of those things she 'saw' as neccessary because she kept mum about the reason for it (she could quite rightly say however that no one asked her) and also didn't explain why Harry should hold off on reviving Bellatrix (looking smug and having a big reveal is so easy when you've got that kind of implicit trust where people don't even question your directives. Good thing Luna is nicer than Bumblemore) so we thought she was 'seeing' when she was really just being clever and staging a good surprise.
So this time travel thing means they can only make 99 new dryads and Trelawney already has those extra protections though doesn't it? They put in 1 of each potion into the cauldron and get 100 doses of Super Dryad Cordial out then they have to use up a dose of by having Luna send it off with 7 year old grandmother so she can hand it to Luna to put back by the lake a month ago. Most of the times I've seen small continuity/logic things like this so far it always happens quote marks and someone corrects the mistaken character a couple chapters later. It's also more than possible I'm remembering things wrongs and the cauldron works where you put in 1 and get out 101.

I was thinking that because he still had the Malaclaw venom it was going to go wrong somehow, maybe all rituals performed at the same instant and he'd lose 2 of his Horcruxes when he tried to be in multiple bodies at once. Like with the Horcruxes stored he can have as many as he likes, but having more than once be active at a time would draw those soul pieces back into his original body and well never mind he's just murder 2 more people and remake them, no big deal. I think the most frightening part of this is that Dumbledore can get revived even when he's still alive. That kind of ruins the 'just put him in a prison cell' plan that became an option after they released Fawkes. Hopefully Harry won't forget he can go out in public and do embarassing things while wearing Dumbledore's face.
Harry's research into using a unicorn in a ritual is going to be the reason Luna wanted to wait a few more days I'll bet, so she can be cured of that pesky tattoo and maybe get her sanity back too. Though being sane with a conscience and having her memory back might just drive her insane again with the guilt/grief. She doesn't get Harry's coping mechanism of knowing it wasn't acually him doing those things in his memories.

Don't let the haters get you down. Snarff.
