hunzbookwyrm chapter 10 . 9/2/2016
great story
Trahald of Uru chapter 8 . 1/27/2016
The names of the last two death eaters makes a nice reference to theoretical physics.
rb2312 chapter 3 . 8/29/2015
hopefully the bond will help ginny get free of the diary sooner
rb2312 chapter 2 . 8/29/2015
nice that the bond seems to be getting stronger

given molly's reaction to the dursleys, I would say dumbles will have a fight on his hands if he tries to send harry back there. especially as she seems to see harry as family ("call me mum") and may already be planning the wedding

pitty ginny still got the diary. though hopefully with friends, she will not get sucked into it this time
rb2312 chapter 1 . 8/29/2015
great start to the second story

hopefully Arthur will tell of harry's living conditions and even dumbles will be unable to force him back to number 4.
I can just see Molly giving the old man a face to face howler if he does

nice to see the grangers accepting the bond. hope they are more involved than in cannon
charcoal11 chapter 7 . 8/17/2015
you made a mistake, dumbledore told mcgonagall to call the aurors but then you have him doing it himself
xxPercyRoxxx chapter 7 . 1/30/2015
Hope you update soon love the story. Interesting take on events so far. What happens at Valentine's day since Lockhart isn't there anymore?
Blitzstrahl chapter 7 . 10/11/2014
-240 points for being early to class WtF?!
Potterformers chapter 7 . 9/20/2014
okay now that plain mean.
Kai chapter 5 . 7/22/2014
Now it's going off canon. Dumbledore gets the help of an expert. Whatever next? And the Sparkplug I've seen as alias for Arthur Weasley, when he was an Unspeakable in a story. Would be nice because he'd be a competent parent to help with his daughter's ordeal.

A/N: I guess it's up to you if you keep the original horcruxes. They're not necessary for his resurrection, they just prevented his dying in 1981, and therefore they aren't needed for the plot anymore. Unless you plan on a horcrux destroying tent holiday or some such...
Kai chapter 4 . 7/22/2014
I noticed the "Kimcorn" immediately, and it was funny. So I guess you lost that bet... ;-) Why they translated the name in the first place, I have no idea. Lots of Potter-specific terms are wordplay, so the German version uses lots of translations for items and such. That's the reason why I never read German HP stories. Not the originals and certainly no fanfics. It's just terrible to read if you're used to the English terms. Helped me with my English a bit, too.
shadow slice chapter 10 . 7/10/2014
Good story I think it Would be cool if u did the hole seriously
FreelanceBum chapter 9 . 5/19/2014
One reviewer has suggested that Ron fall out of friendship with Harry,

Do that, no one likes Ron! People who pretend to are just sadly deluded!
FreelanceBum chapter 8 . 5/19/2014
Ok I feel I've read enough to give a more in depth review.

You are following canon extremely close, which is disappointing. In most scenes its identical, but Ginny doing the stuff Ron did. The few times you do make changes, you immediately make up something that makes the same thing occur. Such as the diary is taken care of, so the trial off of a very silly premise. Gilderoy wasn't very subtle about his PR, but he was good enough to sneak around taking memories. What possibly reason would he do it in front of an entire classroom? Hermione has friends, so Ron's remarks of no one standing her doesn't make sense...especially since RON appeared to have no friends to her two. So despite that change, they still do the troll incident the same way. Etc.

Additionally the story reads more like cliff notes, or highlights, than a story. In other words, you don't really show much fluff, merely snippets of repeated plot from canon.

Now to my biggest complaint: the protagonists don't have any problems. Everyone just shrugs and accepts the bond, no prejudice against the bisexual nature of the kiss, Voldemort was barely there, Harry lost the horcrux in his head in less than 2 paragraphs, and Ginny wasn't possessed after a very simplistic wrap up. It would have been a lot more interesting if Tom could have possessed any one or all three of them. Or even due to the extra amount of soul, come back after draining each of them a bit very, very quickly.

On to the things I like: I think I like where this is going, from what I can tell. However, currently so little is actually yours it is hard to tell. Once I am caught up, somewhere in fourth book from the looks of it, I'll finish with a more complete review. I hope you don't take this as a flame, as I don't intend to be mean, but this is how I see it.
