guest chapter 9 . 3/12
Wow! This was such a far-out AU that I'm still dizzy. You used some completely new (to me) devices and wove them into a perfectly engaging story. Almost all your OCs were real people: excellent characterization. I liked Snape's new backstory, especially his having an overprotective Granny plus a true friend in Rona, who not only exposed Black's murderous 'prank' to HP in plain words but clobbered the berk as well.

I'm ~so~ gratified that Snape finally got a break, at last free of both his slavemasters; but the bird-to-woman thing was a bit much. The woman wasn't real, just a trophy. At least he's shot of the hated teaching. He'll go back to Hogwarts to pack his belongings and then scarper, never to set foot in the place again. May he have a much better life starting right now.

So ganz anders und wunderschön. Natürlich musste Severus wieder sehr leiden aber er wurde beschützt!
Und Harry hat ein ganz neues Umfeld kennen gelernt und außerdem ist Voldemort vernichtet worden.
Großartig!

OMG, this is the most dramatic scene I've ever read. Wow. Great writing. The whole story is interesting so far, but this chapter is a masterpiece.

You said this would need more of the same, but I think this is probably the most unique of the stories I've read with this scenario.

Very nice story. I like that Helen turned out to be a woman. Had she once been human and was she cursed? Or was she a familiar who became human? I'm unclear about that. I am glad Snape lost his Mark.

I am curious about what, if anything, Harry will say or do regarding Snape's revelations about what the Aurors did the night James and Lily died. Will he just let it drop, knowing that the truth would hurt Neville? Would Sirius let it drop if he knew?

Why do I get the idea that Harry wouldn't mind staying there?

Well, that was interesting. Was the Angry Voice talking about Helen? Snape is going to be so mad that she got loose. It sounds as if she was his familiar.

As for the Pooka ... That is what Elwood P. Dowd called his big invisible Rabbit in Harvey. It's supposed to be some sort of mischievous spirit. Solly doesn't seem to cause any mischief. He seems rather helpful.

Now, for the important question. Did they kill Voldemort? This story was written in 2003 ... B.H. (Before Horcruxes ... Or at least before we were aware of them.) If they did kill him, what about the other DEs?
