This chapter was everything that I dared hope it would be and I find myself almost speechless.

Far and away the best chapter you've ever written.

And that's the last of that! Now for fifth year! Can't wait for that!
I think Voldemort's first priority will be to get his old body back … he doesn't strike me as the type to be happy in a secondhand body …

I'm definitely curious to see if you're going to follow cannon at the graveyard or if you have any unexpected twists for us. I personally hope for the second, but either way, I can't wait to see what happens next.
Strangely, one of my favorite parts of the chapter was the duel between Fleur and Harry. You actually made her seem like the champion she was, which is frighteningly rare on this site.
In case you haven't had your fair share of praise today, 'Excellent Story!'
Eagerly awaiting your next update,

Whatever happened to Animagus forms having to be registered with the Ministry? Surely it's rather risky for Harry to be using an unregistered Animagus form at a public event with Ministry officials present?

That was the best ending to Triwizard Tournement I have ever read. I am really glad your Harry had enough Honour to not just shoot Krum and Cedric in the back but also how you showed how a true Slytherin can win. I have read your last versions and I am so glad that you decided to redo them, they have become my favorites. Can't wait for your next update.

yes, Harry gets the cup and Cedric doesn't get killed.

Haha...Harry gets portkeyed...This version is even better than the original version...:)

I don't understand people having trouble with math. Then again, mathematics are simply something I easily understood. Though it does cause problems when you don't show your work since you can look at a problem and just know the answer without needing to make any additional steps.
Well, that certainly sounded arrogant of me.

I started reading the original series when you were, I think, midway through Year 4. I decided to look through the post-canon revisions, and I agree, they're a lot better written than the originals.
However... I agree with some of the other reviews. It's a fabulous story, the plot and characters are developed nicely, and there's a good bit of conflict (thank goodness it's not a safe little Wizarding World!) but, I think these Slytherins aren't acting like Slytherins at all.
Slytherins are supposed to be sneaky, cunning, and whether we like it or not, we play dirty. (I'm a Slytherin myself, if my own personal preference, friends' opinions, and a good number of Pottermore Sorting Hat quizzes have any indication) There is a distinct lack of plotting, underhandedness, and shady deals... It seems like everyone's conforming to Harry's ideals far too easily, in particular, the Malfoys.
All these Slytherins, quite personally, are acting like a lot of Hufflepuff-Gryffindors. I'm kind of disappointed with the way Harry's acting; you'd think spending so much time with the Snakes would change his view, even if slightly.
Overall, it's still a marvellous story that I'll continue to read and fawn over :) Those were just my thoughts, although I should add that I'm infinitely pleased that you included Blaise in the post-canon revision: he's one of my favourites.
Thanks again, though, for a brilliant story that keeps me on my toes!

Honestly, I get that you're twisting everything left and right, almost as though this was what Rowling would have intended if Slytherin were the good guys and Gryffindor the bad, but there are limits. Slytherin obviously cheat, to hurt their enemies if not to help themselves directly. Constant Quidditch fouls, messing with the Gryffindor's cauldrons, etc. Taking honor out of the situation, attacking an opponent unaware sounds eminently Slytherin, while always announcing your presence beforehand very Gryffindor.
This business with Tracy is really not sitting well with me.
The illegality of the Skrewts were not apparent until Skeeter did that article after the Yule Ball...I seriously doubt even Hagrid would just blurt that out so early.
And you really, really, REALLY use far too many book quotes. Do you realize you had Lucius speak just as Arthur did? You must know, but...ugh.

I look forward to reading further chapters. I can't wait to see what Harry's Animagus form is, I have my suspicions though. I do still hope you plan to get him together with Ginny eventually, but that is because I think they make the best pairing.
| Newt Scamander 7/30/12 . chapter 21
I think you're confusing Nifflers and Kneazles.
Kneazles are the cat-like creatures with big ears that are smart & good at sniffing out suspicious characters.
Nifflers are the ones that go digging for anything gold or shiny.

Great chapter - I really enjoyed it, and I look forward to reading the next one.
