I was mostly expecting dry explanationy type stuff which would be a bit of a trudge to get through, but this was truly hilarious. Thank you!

So I've heard a LOT about thisfic, and I have to say, it is good. :-)

In this world, there are Things You Should Do because you are told to; there are Things You Should Not Do because you are told not to; there are Things You Should Not Do because you are told to; and there are Things You Should Do because you are told not to.
Reading this fanfic is all of those things.
Most readers will read this and find a ripping good yarn-Tom Stoppard writes a love sonnet to JK Rowling, as read by Neil Patrick Harris-and, for most readers, that is Something You Should Do.
For a few of the rest of you, it is time to listen. Read this fanfic, but do not read it unawares.
Yes. it is fiction. It is fantasy. It is fanic. it is a trope-heavy, rollicking roller-coaster-romp. It is indulgently self-indulgent, multiply recursive, finely crafted, and set to go off on a variable timer.
This is is where you listen: This will change your flag. Yes, you may fly the same colors when you are done, but they will be...different. A new device, a subtle repositioning, a matter of perspective,the image of a hand poised to snap its fingers. Perhaps new colors, perhaps more complex colors, perhaps even simpler colors.
Read it, enjoy, and be moved.
You have been warned; it WILL change your flag.

1st TEEHEE: "There was a distinct body-hitting-the-ground-with-a-thuddish sort of sound."
2nd TEEHEE: "What the sweet slithering snakes was that?" God bless Quirrell. :P
3rd TEEHEE: "Tell them I ate it," said Professor Quirrell, causing Harry to choke on the soda he had unthinkingly raised to his lips." !
Oh, wow, Harry's deductions at the end. I'm wondering if in your AU, these are correct, or if he's actually on the wrong track? How crazy would it be if Dumbledore had rigged the whole chain of events concerning the prophecy? Whew... *head spins*

*cracks up* This was awesome. I love how Harry got Draco to join him in gushing. I cracked up so much I confused my poor little niece. Awesome.

God this hilarious. I want to keep reading, but my ribs hurt. Awesome story.
| alotofletters 5/2/13 . chapter 24
Was that a reference to Death Note in this chapter? If so, I love this story even more. Keep up the awesome work. :D
| rgstarzinski 5/2/13 . chapter 24
Wonderful Deathnote reference. Really loving this whole story.

You missed your progress report :(
| Diavo 5/2/13 . chapter 85
why did u change it? it was better when the pheonix wasnt there. then he could still get one of his own. so i beg you change it back or let him be the only one to have a pheonix come twice. and i beg you even more that if a pheonix comes again it is the same one that came now.

Five chapters in, at 5am in the morning after a long night of studying, and you have me dying of laughter. Actually killing me. My sides hurt. I've been laughing for four chapters straight, and my sides are staring to hurt. Truce?
| Ross 5/1/13 . chapter 4
I love you.
In the best way possible. Good god man thank you I'm sending this to all my friends.
| Ross 5/1/13 . chapter 2
Mother of- was that a Pigfarts joke? Mars. You rotter. I love this. Thank you.
plague of flaming- yeah 1 reader.
| Guest 5/1/13 . chapter 87
Haha, great chapter. I really hope that they can reconcile though. Harry and Hermione haven't been easy friends for a long time, and now is a time when they need each other.
| Guest 5/1/13 . chapter 86
Awesome chapter. Long, but awesome. I'm a bit worried by the end with Harry and Snape.
