Nice job here with the emergence of Gandalf and the characterizations of the Heads of Houses. I could just imagine how thrilled McGonagall and Flitwick would be to discover just who Gandalf is, and how much he would look forward to being brought up to date about the wizarding world, but then there was Dolores...
You've managed to capture her nicely (or not so nicely, as she's perfectly her annoying self here) and I could just see her reacting to Gandalf with close-minded suspicion.
Dementors, huh? Well, Gandalf has faced worse, so I look forward to seeing him handle what Dolores thinks is the best way to deal with this unknown wizard.

The path through which I found this story is quite convoluted, but so far I'm glad I did!
The premise is quite intriguing, and you give plausible explanations for why this mixing of two worlds could happen.
Your narrative read like that of a practiced storyteller and flowed along quite smoothly. It was elegantly written, and I do so look forward to seeing Mithrandir finding himself in the next age of wizards.
You've got me hooked!

Just started reading, but wanted to say that the way you changed the lands around Moria into Hogwarts was great! I especially love how you brought the giant squid into it!

Hi there; the start of your story was fantastic - but as for myself Gandalf and Albus are one and the same, I couldn't imagine both of them next to each other in one story...so I would have wished for him to appear before or after Albus' time. But as Gandalf/Minerva are my "Dream-Team" I am very thankful for any story at all about them, and there was a lot to like in yours, for example "The Lady of the Castle"-Titel for Minerva *gg*

yack. it is pointless romance...
you do realize that for gandalf it is almost like a lion falling in love with a domestic cat?
| albeva chapter 6 . 5/24/2008
you sort of know how to write - but your story telling is ...
I think readers would be more interested in Gandalf's story in HP universe then Minerva's (about whom we have read for 7 books and countless fics)
Also even ministry is not so short sighted as to imprison him without ANY evidance or testimony.
Neither would Gandalf let himself be locked up.

I don't think you truly understand Gandalf's character nor who he is. flame of Arnor indeed... I think you mean the 3rd ring of power that Gandalf has in his posession? Narya!
However note here that power of the three rings was over when One ring was destroyed!

utterly POINTLESS chapter!
why repeat the same thing over again? stay to one POV
| albeva chapter 2 . 5/24/2008
uhm I got mixed feelings after reading this.
he wouldn't be much of a wielder of a "secret fire" if he announced that to every one he met?
Also what about language barrier?
also I hope this is not a romance story - you do realize that Gandalf (Olorin) is rather ageless. You could call him a demigod or an angel. Literally. so he and minerva... McGonogall would be a mere child to him. a passing thing. as she is a MORTAL.
You wrote well umbridge part - hoep she get's serious ass kicking.

It's like you took this story from my silly 12 year old mind.
You started it wonderfully. I love how you included the giant squid.
My only wish is that is was longer and there were more moments between Gandalf and Minerva.
I request another story of them!

This story is lovely.
