| Disassembly of Reason chapter 16 . 11/9/2003
Boy, if I were a Gryffindor taking Potions from Snape, I'd be impressed with Eloise's test score, too. And o, Malfoy's got a bad case of sour grapes – he only got a C compared to Eloise's A. *happy little dance* (celebony, you're catching, you realize.)
The start of a beautiful friendship – well, I don't know the word, actually, but "friendship" is too strong just yet. Harry's automatic wisecrack about Snape was triggered before his brain kicked in to remind him that Snape helped him when he really needed it. But Harry's got the grit to admit to himself that he shouldn't have said that, and to stand up to his friends on the subject later on. I agree with Dumbledore that it takes *real* nerve to stand up to one's friends.
Framing Eloise's test paper for her is a cute gesture; Neville's little addition is an interesting sidelight on him, as we rarely get much chance in canon to see his sense of humour. (He's usually being terrorized by Snape, or suffering over the memory of his parents, or whatnot. Celebony has shown us Neville's humour elsewhere, though, in one of Harry's study sessions for Potions.)
And having lulled the reader into a sense of fluffy goodness, the opposite technique from inserting a humor scene to break dramatic tension...
Nasty wakeup call after the framed test score, that Harry's coughing up blood. Celebony seems to be using genuine leukemia symptoms, here. (I actually looked it up, out of curiosity. Given celebony's A/N about being close to a number of cancer patients in real life, not surprising that the details are correct.)
"Harry, he gave you detention for sneezing."
"Yeah, well, that was months ago."
That sounds like a real incident, which is hysterical – unless that was the public explanation for "Detention Discoveries", when what really happened was that Snape noticed that Harry was in inexplicable pain.
Nice setup for "Reactions" – Harry and Ron never knew, and may never know, that Snape is now aware that Harry defended him to Ron when Harry had absolutely nothing to gain by it.

Why hello again I enjoyed reading this chapter,it was very has good free coke is better then you would expect.I dont know why I wrote that so just ignore it.I liked how Harry said he liked Ginny so inconspicuously(I cant spell long words).What does transfaerso mean you said somehwere in your fic but i am to lazy to look for it,I know that recnac means cancer backwards!I think that Cho should fall down a large flight of stairs and have to live in a wheelchair for the rest of her life because shes retarted.I cant think of any improvement because its just so french teacher is and he said that he's to "pretty" to change a was funny at the time.O INTRIGUING I OvERaLL yOuR StOrY Is vErY Good so keep writing it!omg u shud make a sequel called Harry and the green mongoose and the goose shud attack Harry but Harry will tame it and give it to Hagrid as a day jk...

wow, another brilliant chapter. I've been checking every day to see if you update. I really love this story and I don't have that very often. This time I took the precausion though, of reading it in my room when I was alone ;)

i read your whole story in one day. a very nice distraction from work i might add. Its excellent writing. I'm very impressed by your portrayal of Snape. Normally when people try to have a positive relationship between harry and snape its completely unrealistic but you wrote it very well. My eyes were filled with tears for a few moments in the story. You just can't let him die...well you can,and this story will still be amazing. Oh well just call me a sucker for happy endings when it comes to harry potter. By the way i love Moulin rouge though my fave part is the elephant love medley. Oh and the harry ginny part...would you start something up with them if harry was going to die so soon? i wonder... i guess i'll just have to wait until u update, please don't take long! :)

This is an excellent story! I really love it! It's got a wonderful plot, explinations, and not very many cliffies~! I'm glad that you didn't have Draco suddenly warm up to Harry and become his best friend after he saved his life! This story is really going great, and I can't wait for the next update! (hey, that rhymed! And I'm...um...timed. Ok, that was stupid. I'm no cupid! Alright, I'll stop. Before you pop!:)
So please update soon! I can't wait!

Well I just spent the last 4 hours reading your story (I have no life) and I must say it is an excellent story. I look forward to more

Wow, I don't even remember the Confundus charm...I'm more of a LOTR person. I can recall little details from those books, but I don't remember HP details all that much...I learn something with every review. I think that's cool that you expanded its function. I didn't think anyone wanted Rod Stewart...thanks for confirming for me...
YAY! Draco returns! I love his little, evil bum...warmongers...that word is funny in itself.
Speaking of words, I noticed the word discretely more than once and thought...what an awesome word...hm...
Harry/Hermione- How touching was that scene between Harry and Hermione? I think you wrote Hermione so well and I loved your reference to the next big adventure mixed in with fear.
I also really appreciated Ron and Hermione's thoughts about why Harry didn't want to get behind in his schoolwork. As I've written before, there have been a few cases of cancer in my family. If I had to pick the worst thing about cancer, it would be that you have no control. You can only watch, which is why I especially liked Hermione's explanation that he wanted to keep control over the things that he could control.
Ron- I thought that was so funny when he wondered why he always stated the obvious...He does it so much in the books that I had come to dismiss the possibility that Ron knew he stated the obvious...The way that Ron concentrated on the potion for Harry more than he had ever concentrated in his life was so sweet...
That was unbelievably cool of Snape when he told Ron that he trusted him, a privilege not given to most.
Hehe...the line that states Crabbe spoke the longest sentence in his life was so funny to me...and when he finally spoke, he sounded like a complete redneck...idears...Ha!
As the story becomes more serious, I want to repeat something that I said in my very first review. Your power to capture the emotions of these character's is amazing...I find every chapter to be touching and effective...The characters really seem real...its awesome! Keep it up!

Yay! Go Charles! He's so cute, ain't he? Made me proud, the way he stood up to Vincent.
Poor Harry, h'es really starting to feel the effects of the cancer now. Will he really die? 'Cause I don't want him to.
| infiniteternity chapter 29 . 11/7/2003
I'm sorry after so long I've returned? Whatever anyways. Great chapter and I think I've said this far too many times so please listen once more. Keep up the great work and update soon
