Very nice story, I especially like how you don't just focus on the Golden Trio but the entire 1st year (though I wonder what goes on in Goyle's mind sometimes) and build them up to be believable characters.

As long as Harry doesn't want to put his Papa Pa und Mary together.
But Goldie in the dungeons is the best. I wonder what will happen next when all the other professors discover that Harry "got a Pony".
That was really great.
Thank you for writing.
your stupid thing

While the whole Parvati, Padma switching house is interesting (I think something about that is actually mentioned in the books, but not in great detail), the punishment McGonagall gave seems kind of stupid. While Parvati wasn't the one to get the question right, Lisa Turpin believed it to be so. If it had really been Parvati, the situation would have been no different. Lisa still would have showed extreme bias, bigotry, and still would have hexed her. You can't say "Well if Parvati and Padma hadn't switched classes, then nothing would have happened", because it doesn't matter if it would or not. You can't equate Padma/Parvatis twin switch to Lisa Turpin's actions and attitude, just because what happened was extreme. Should Parvati/Padma be punished for twin switching. Maybe. Should they Tell Lisa what they did. Again, maybe. But they Should NOT be subjected to the same punishment. Correlation does not imply Causation.

Not many stories are true tearjerkers for me, but this story and this chapter in particular certainly was.

Glad you're back! What Harry said after the bunny story made my eyes water a little. Had a little trouble remembering all the characters though.

Personally, I really like this story. At first, I admit, I was reluctant to read it. Crack! fics are all right sometimes, but I thought this one was one too, so I passed it by a couple of times. One day I just read it and I loved it.
It's interesting to have these 'transcripts', as the title says, of teachers' chats with select students [I prefer Hermy's and Lisa Turpin's for some reason...].
Anyways, one thing that bothered me is how fast Severus warmed up to Harry. I suppose you meant for it to happen that way, so I won't question it, but I find Harry's sessions lacking - but maybe I'm saying that because I prefer drama or something. But, overall, thumbs up. :)

I'm getting a tad tired of reading this writing style. It hurts my head a bit. Before I leave though I just wanted to recommend a story for you to read. I believe it is called "how to tame a werewolf" and it has a premise similar to yours. It involves a Remus Lupin (or was it harry potter? Been a year since I read it) who is mentally damaged because of the way the rest of his pack treats him. A human boy from the village encounters him and tries to befriend him.

Oh and fyi I know harry doesn't have down syndrome, just brain damage. And as far as I know you can't do much more than estimate what the effects of brain damage will be. There was a special on tv I saw one time about people who got a knock on the head and next think you know they had these amazing abilities that they didn't have before. The mind is a frighteningly amazing thing. It really is a computer that works to repair itself when things go wrong and sometimes ends up giving us abilities that are more advanced than the average person, if not needed in life. This harry reminds me of that kid whose blind but can still "see" via sonar.
| Obscene Cupcake 2/4/13 . chapter 3
I have for a long time held a great hatred for people with down syndrome. i don't know why but even the sight of someone with down syndrome would make me shake with rage. The few people I spent any amount of time around with down syndrome always seemed to be very shallow and have very rude opinions, though I tried to tell myself they weren't smart enough to know better.
Then someone on reddit, rather than yelling at me when I mentioned this, the way most people would, sent me a letter by some guy who won the special olympics, written towards that limelight-loving woman from fox. The man, who had down syndrome, wrote a letter that was absolutely beautiful. I used to be an english major before dropping out. There are very few art forms I can appreciate more than the written word. That letter led me to realize that I had not been thinking logically about people with down syndrome, was uneducated about the disorder, and had been doing them a great disservice.
and so within the two minutes it took me to read that letter I completely reevaluated my opinion on said people. Because what kind of person would I be if I didn't acknowledge it when I was wrong? There is no way that the person who wrote that letter could be anything but a genius. It was utter beauty.
