Hermione watching groundhog day is a nice touch

I love how Harry treats hugging like mistletoe. Strict avoidance on sight, lest you get caught up in something XD

Well, help me please Harry, and not on an adventure seem clear enough, though I'm not sure how to grammatically make sense of 'I in big trouble England Dark'. I'm assuming it's something to do with dark things happening in England and him being in big trouble, but it's still a bit vague and confusing.

So Snape is still far from a good adult to be around children in this fic but quite frankly I adore how he is with Harry and the point giving and taking was amusing. Rip about Flint, though I assume it's more a matter of multiple things being true at once: considering Harry a friendly younger acquaintance but also strictly adhering to the blood purity nonsense he's been taught. Still not fun to be faced with that sort of complexity when it's inconvenient for your own position, I imagine. Especially when you're thirteen and many things seem black and white

Awe, Greg is being very sweet in his own way

I've been listening to this while working so this review will cover things from pretty far back.
Firstwow oh wow Harry putting himself through the ringer with that Boggart hit hard. Those memories in the extended form you've written them really cut deeper for me than the canon version. I suppose the amount he remembers is a stretch but hey, magic, and it really brought something to the character and story.
The letter from quirreldemort also hit hard. I can't even imaginethe first adult he forms a trusting relationship with and it turns out like this. And I'm still rooting for them and it confuses the heck out of me. Really an overarching theme for me reading this has been a little gnome dancing in my brain going "I'm sure there's a solution for this so everyone can be happy" and covering it's eyes to any indications of the reverse.
Same with Snape. I really enjoy this version where he sees Harry as Lily's son, not James'. Also I like that it can be read as platonic love, albeit very strong. I'm aware that that may still change in the future but for now I find this reading much more comfortable than a flat out he-lusted-after-her-forever version. Creepy. Better this way imho. I also have read so mane Snape redemption arcs that I almost have a bias for him over Black. But Black is trying so hard here, poor dude. And I like Lupin even though the one in this universe hasn't had the most luck with Harry yet. Ahg, I hope there's a way to live and let live at least. How about for the child's sake that they all care about, hmm? Gentlemen, there's a thirteen year old that could do with some trustworthy adults, I'm sure you can empathise. Good gosh I want a good outcome for these three adults and their bond with Harry. Im very invested.
On to lighter things! I still think Daphne may have a crush on Harry or may at least be open to crushing on him. She sent him a sappy letter last year and was most upset with the lack of response, and it seems like Pansy's tryna weedle out Harry's feelings towards her. That being said, I really hope there isn't a Daph Harry Milli love triangle down the line. I adore Millie as just a calm, steady friend that is really good with Storm.
On which note, oh my all. Storm is the funniest. I keep giggling at the passages where Storm shares his ideas of good etiquette and gift ideas. Absolutely amazing.
In case it isn't obvious, I'm really really enjoying this fic. I've been a faithful reader for the past few days and very glad to see that the series still seems to be an active work in progress. I'm so pleased to read some more, thank you author for your work and creativity, and for sharing the results.

I'm hoping everything is ok with Tracey. Things are starting to get a bit suspicious around her

Neville is such a joy! Making the CoMC class work for him by studying dirt composition is just great. Also I'm really enjoying the development of Harry and Snapes relationship, though I'm a bit sad that my favorite marauder is getting so much suspicion. Makes sense of course, between the first two DADA teachers, the Sirius black situation, and both snape and storm being antagonistic and intrigued by him respectively. But still, poor dude is rejected widely and coming to Hogwarts where Snape and Harry are probably makes that rejection a lot more personal and this isn't likely a fun position to be in. But let's see what happens! I'll just sit over here hoping they can all get along XD

come back to check Lockhart's letter. I didn't blame harry for not realising the code, I didn't either! nice work with the letter though!

Oh wow! Excellent reading once again! I love all the little hints you plaster through your stories and it's very satisfying when they start to pick up steam :) I'm very excited for the next in the series even though I usually am not overly mad on the fourth book I just know your interpretation and path will be much more enjoyable for me :) I'm still shocked but not surprised by lupins actions. I hope he's safe somewhere but I find it hard to see him clearing his name any time soon. I'm looking forward to seeing dobby again and having Harry and siruis get to know each other. Also ridiculously excited for this relationship with Voldemort but I think that's going to be very slow in the making! Thank you again for your wonderful work :)

wow just, wow. i have to tell you that i LOVE this series of yours. the slow but sure world building and characters development, harry being friends with the Slytherins instead of feuding with them, harry and hermione try to learn more about wizarding cultures, it all fits in my opinion. there are lots of things that i like from your series that I can't write here, but, thank you so much for writing the fics!

Just a quick note to say, wonderful as usual :) and I heartily approve your location of hogwarts. I've been to Granton on spey and it truly is a magical part of the world. Much like the rest of the Highlands I'm lucky to live very close to
