It's nice to know that age hasn't changed Severus much. If anyone can help Harry, it's Snape.

It's a good thing Harry remembered his magical background well enough to give Arthur instructions. I liked the way Harry used ice cream and chocolate frogs to help Arthur see another side of his magical world.

Harry marrying a nonmagical woman and having a nonmagical child is different. The unusual curse is an interesting start, too. I'm looking forward to Arthur's experiences is the magical world.

Oh I love this story so much - never stop writing! Have you ever published an original story? You should! Just keep dishing out stories - everything you write is magic, I can't get enough of it!

You are the most enchanting author - you take an established world and spin delightful, original stories with it that are sensitive and magical and yet grounded entirely in realness. I love Arthur's Slytherin side.

Interesting idea for a story.
The stasis bit was a little horrifying, and the refusal to be magical was kind of annoying. Still, I liked the story despite the fact that I didn't really like Arthur's personality.

This is such a wonderful story and the whole idea behind it with Harry's amnesia and Arthur's obvious unease with magic was truly exceptiomal! I just wish there were some more chapters... but anyway, you did a great job with this!

I'm a bit late to the party, aren't I?
While I will admit that I find the technology quite funny compared to what we have now (only two years until this story is set and I can't imagine having to get a cartridge to get news rather than connecting on my phone to the data connection or even just to WiFi) it was a great story. I liked Arthur and while I was very worried about this whole "hand caster" thing (can anyone say Mary Sue?) it was used relatively effectively, not getting too overbearing. In my head, it's not just McGonagall that means he can only do transfiguration, it's James etc. that make him good at it - have to have a weakness for a character in my head, surely!
I did feel that the whole "all of a sudden Snape can heal him and nobody contacted him earlier" thing a bit suspect, but it was cleared up by saying that the potion he changed was only invented a year or so back.
While I'm sure it does sound like I'm reverting to just insulting the story, I really enjoyed it, even.. oh god.. 8 or so years on. (Fuck. I don't realise how far back 2004 is, really...)

What an odd little story. Very enjoyable though. And quite well written.

I don't have much to say but this story was so entertaining and leaves me with an urge to pay the author for the fun. What else to do than leave a review.
I will come back to this story for sure. The perspective of a muggle that refuses to instantly accept everything about wizards world is highly interesting. I was a bit disappointed when Arthur turned out to have magic. It almost seemed as a waste of a great story and a cheap move, but you handled it pretty well and he didn't just end up being a copy of Harry Potter. I will now check out your other stories. I hope for a sequel to this one in the future, but I don't think you cut the story in half - the ending was perfect.
One thing that bothered me was that no fourteen year old would want to hug so much and walk with his father arm over his shoulder. You addressed this issue a few times but there still was to much of this strange cuddliness in my opinion

What a wonderful story. I do love Arthur's character and sometimes wish I could read more about him.

So glad I found this story, it was so good! :) I really liked the originality of the storyline.
I must say that I was a bit surprised by how abruptly the story ended. There could have been so much more or even an epilogue? Hope you decide to write one! Apart from that it was really good! x

Hey, i like much of the ideas you've put into good use here. You're good at thinking outside the box and that compliments this story very nicely. Especially your "mellowed" Snape is something one doesn't see too often and the threads around Harry and Arthur coming to grips with their changed situation in life did work quite realistically. And the many small hints on what has happened "before" were interesting and seemed well thought through too.
I just have to wonder, why you decided to end it after fifteen chapters and rather abruptly as there are so many things still untold and so many developments still halfway through.
Okay, Arthur won't like the idea of becoming a wizard for the foreseeable future, but there would have been still much of a story potential in his current decisions. and Harry's working up the past doesn't even seem halfway finished, even if one would be to assume that much of the griefing and self doubts connected with having had a wife that now is gone almost without a trace in your remembering leaving behind a boy who's almost grown up and whose whole past you've missed went through "off camera" his behavior does not really seem to be "over" with all this stuff. Added to that that Arthur has been in mortal peril for the first time since his reawakening... there must be turmoil in Harry's mind and soul... and we won't ever see anything of it? What a pity!

Great story. Of course I just wish I had an epilogue. :)

That was magical! Thank you.
