|Reviews for Lord of Caer Azkaban|
| Cole Pascal chapter 34 . 17h ago
I'm just about finished rereading this and aside from the rampant typos and lack of punctuation I still find it a very good story.
While reading it I had an idea for a rewrite. Instead of Harry coming to the island post sirius's death, what if he was rescued from the Dursleys and brought to azkaban at three? It would be an interesting coming of age story where Harry is a well educated noble who's hiding his real identity as the Black Baron of Azkaban while making friends with hermione, Luna, fleur, Neville, and the like, people who can be influential eventually but are just good people due to being properly raised. In third year he'd be incredibly angry about ministry interference with his island and wants to personally execute Sirius himself while becky, his youthful companion, designated mistress, and plain friend, is also at hogwarts with him and talks him into interrogating him beforehand to shore up the weaknesses. Thus they find out about Pettigrew. Harry makes Sirius a ward of the island and instead of a trial the black baron pardons him and tells fudge to shove it. Then tries to find the info the destroy the man.
I might write it but I have so many other plot bunnies ravaging my gardens. . . .

Awesome, great story I really enjoyed it. I've only recently started reading Harry Potter fan fiction so I haven't read many but I thought this was very original and I liked the different aspects in it. Like the different magical creatures you included, the Nightmares and the birds (sorry can't remember what their called) and the hounds. I also like what you did with Neville's parents, I've read a couple of stories where they get healed but I liked this idea. However I don't like Snape and I didn't see why he should be able to just leave and work on what he wants after everything he's done to Harry and all the other students. I get that it's better he's out of the way but he's basically getting away unpunished. Just what I think. I really liked the relationship between Harry, Hermione and Becky, I thought they worked well together and I enjoyed their interactions. I did think Harry was a bit naive in some of the things he did (not as much as in canon) but still. Oh and about Dumbledore I don't think he's that stupid, well maybe a bit, but I think he's more naive thinking the best of everyone and he really is quite controlling thinking he knows best for everyone. Anyway I really enjoyed it great story.

Why can't anyone just kill Snape?

As for shackbolt you have to remember he was chosen to protect the prime minister for his ability to blend in with muggles and knowledge of the muggle world, though it might have slipped his mind in his panic

You're probably beyond this point but a possible way to cure the Longbottom's is a reverse of a Dimentor. I would also think there are more creatures or beings then the nightmares and the Dimentors in service to the Lord Azkaban.
The idea that I present to cure the Longbottom's is rather weak but it's what came to mind.

Good flow to the story. I like the fact that you do not have a giant wave of angst bearing down so far

The story is turning out really fun

In Greek mythology people were buried with coin under their tongue so they could pay Charon to be ferried across the Styx so they could be judged and put in the Fields of Punishment, the Fields of Asphodel or the Fields of Elysian.

Cute story! It's amusing to see Harry involved in a bit of light-hearted fun for a change.
I am curious, though ... What did he do with Umbridge? I was hoping to see her given an appropriate punishment ... by Becky.

It looks like Draco has met his match in Becky. I wonder if she realizes he is her cousin.
LOL at CrabbeNGoyle!

I'm extremely sorry to nitpick, but as a former teacher, I believe it it part of my nature. I have noticed throughout the story an almost universal misuse of the word "then" in spots where the correct word is "than." The word "then" shows time or sequence. "Than" denotes a comparison of some sort. Rant over ... Please forgive me.
I disagree about Dumbledore's motivation. He says he wants to keep Harry "safe." Safe from what? And why? There are different definitions of "safe." Was he attempting to keep Harry "safe" when he brought the Stone into the castle? Did he think Fluffy would keep Harry "safe"? Did he think all of those Tournament tasks were "safe"? Did he believe Lockhart was a "safe" person to have around kids? "Safe" is a relative thing where Dumbledore is concerned. He wants Harry "safe" so that he can walk willingly to his death at Voldy's hand.

Ferret, Goon, and Goblin - Malfoy and CrabbeNGoyle, I presume? Hmmm ... I wonder why Harry would insult Goblins like that.
Spirit, Moon, and Herb - a Ginny, Luna, and Neville? **chuckle**
Luna, despite her deceptive "airy-fairiness," actually uses deductive reasoning when it's necessary. She never (unlike Hermione) believes something simply because she read it in a book or heard it from an "authority figure." She does apparently believe some extraordinary things; then again, maybe it's all an act. She cuts to the chase with precision when it is necessary, all airiness aside.
So ... Ghost and Phantom had a little father-son bonding times that reminds me ... Why doesn't Harry bring the twins to Azkaban, so they can add their booby-trap expertise to his arsenal?

"... in order for Harry to once again give his trust ..." Does DD really believe this is even a possibility? The idiot must be delusional. I love the fact that he apparently had to go through the "whole Megillah" of airport security - stripdown, removal of all personal items, x-rays, scans, "cavity probes" - just to see Harry. He also seems to come to the island via a different, much longer route. Interesting that no one else has to do this. hehe
I wonder if his prison robes really are "standard issue" or if they were made (or charmed) just for him. Actually, the brighter colors might have a salutary effect on the prisoners' state of mind.
| missgsmith51 chapter 25 . 2/11
Kittens? Ministry? This sounds like it may involve the Pink Toad.
As to Snape ... He seems to like darkness, cobwebs, and mildew, unlike Potions Mistress Winters. BTW, does that mean she will be going to Hogwarts in his stead - and Harry and everyone else will be returning, as well - or does it simply mean Harry is systematically taking apart Dumbledore's little kingdom and power base?
| missgsmith51 chapter 24 . 2/11
Yes, Dumbledore likes to see the good in people ... sometimes when it just isn't there. Draco is just winding up Dumbledore. He doesn't actually disagree with Voldy's stated goals - purging Wizarding society of Muggleborns and asserting Pureblood dominance over all - but he's frightened by the recent turn of events and thinks there might be a chance Voldy will fail. Being the Slytherin he is, he's trying to hedge his bets and provide a safe haven for himself if it happens.
Dumbledore is so arrogant that he believes he can "turn" people back to "the light" - or whatever his warped version of it is - so he allows them to pursue their nasty DE ways under the protection of "spying for the Order." It's going to be interesting to see what happens to that "Order" as time passes; Remus and Minerva have already left. Will Filius and Pomona be far behind? What about Tonks and Shacklebolt?
