Reviews for Harry Potter and the Curse of the Damned
Crazayladay chapter 1 . 11/19/2004
Wow, fantastic as usual. I don't know what you're worried about. It's fan fiction! We, or *I* know it can't be perfect, I think we're just happy you've started it! I do hope you will update soon!

Write on!

Finally! I have been waiting forever for that little email telling me you'd started up again...and it is so cool! Even if it took you so long, I'm glad because it is really really good! And this is just the first chapter! I can not wait until you update! Poor Harry! I mean, really! Oh! You just made my day! Update soon!

Keep at it:).

Heya Melindaleo, it’s great to see that you’ve started the sequel! HP and the Power of Emotion is one of my very favourite HP fics ever, so I’m delighted to have more in the saga. (Before you shoot me for not reviewing it, I promise I will…when I can pluck up the courage! It’s so amazing, wonderfully, but dauntingly long, and I’m so incredibly lazy…)

Well, this looks like a very promising first chapter. The characterisations, as always, were spot on. Harry was perfect – miserable but in a realistic way, independent and self-reliant, proud but not furiously angry (*cough* OotP *cough*) – and I just want to give him a huge hug. Or get Ginny to… Or Mrs Weasley… He’s so sweet and embarrassed. Anyway. Yeah, Harry was lovely – as was Bill. He’s so often underused in HP fiction, yet he’s got so much potential as a great character. I love it when the Weasleys are protective of Harry – Bill is great in this. His red Weasley ears! Lovely. Also, well done for not completely overdoing the Dursleys – yes, they’re horrible, but not sickeningly evil, as in so much fanfiction. The number of times I’ve seen Harry been shot, stabbed, had limbs chopped off, etc… OK, it can be done well, but it rarely is. That’s one of the things I liked about your first fic, by the way – they were nasty, but Dursley nasty, not Voldemort nasty. (That makes no sense…sorry!) Horrible enough to make it a good story, but not completely over the top. (OK, I’m babbling. Time to move on!)

The plot was nice – just enough to start the story with impetus, but not overloaded. Nicely paced for a first chapter: getting warmed up. I’m glad to see Ron and Ginny arriving. I love Harry’s relationships with them in your world; they’re sweet but not overly sentimental. Ginny has a decent character of her own (I love the bit where she yells at Harry for not telling them about the prophecy!) and Ron and Harry have a realistic boys’ relationship. Any chance of Hermione at some point soon? By the way, I believe JKR has confirmed that Hermione is, in fact, younger than the boys. However, it’s your fic, so write what you want to write! Writer’s perks…

Thanks so much for writing! Of course, now I have another excuse to spend more time on the net when I should be working… Don’t worry too much about quick updates. Of course, we’d all like them, but we’d rather you were happy with the story and ended up with something of which you can be proud, even if it takes a while, than you posting a good-but-not-Melindaleo-good version. Once again, thanks so much for taking the time and effort to create such great stories. This looks very promising and I can’t wait for more.

AH! Finally! I must say, I have been waiting for that author alert for what seemed like quite a long time. And the beginning to this new story was fanstastic! Poor Harry; I think I'd go nuts if I had to deal with the Dursley's and Dobby all through my summer. The part when Harry seemed like he was going to pass out (before he got his trunk into his house), and he felt the hand on his arm, I thought it was going to be Dudley, not Bill.. but I think that may have been your intention. I also would have been mortified if I had needed help to go to the bathroom. And Harry being scared out the dark- very believable, and I like it! I'm thinking about the title. Mysterious and foreboding.. ::chuckles evilly:: this is going to be one great story. I can't wait for the next chapter! (By the way, I'm making a prmis to you to review every single chapter of this new story! I want to be one of those "ever-faithful" reviewers! Lol.. ::Puts on a haughty voice:: Keep up the mahvelous work, dahling.

That was a great first chapter. I don't think you have anything to worry about cos you're a great author. Besides, the anticipation for this fic is go great that readers are bound to enjoy it anyway!

As for Harry hiding the extra work from Bill and Dobby: wouldn't that slow down his recovery soewhat? Besides, Bill seems to be really intuitive. I'm sure he would have picked up on it. Maybe if you elaborate on how exactly he hid the factit would be a bit more believable.

Anyway, I'm just nit-picking, it's nothing serious so don't let any soruness oin my part distract you. It really was a great first chapter!

I thought it was a great beginning! Bill's a great addition to Privite Drive, don't you think? Can't wait for next chapter.
Joeri chapter 1 . 11/19/2004
this is very good. dont worry about all the expectations do what you think is right cant wait for the next chapter! :)
illjwamh chapter 1 . 11/19/2004
You have no IDEA how excited I was when I got the email saying this was up. I've been waiting for it for a long time.

That being said, I was pleased by the first chapter. You've set the transition well, moving right from the end of the last one and still managing to make it seem like a whole new story. Plus, the only mistake I found in the whole thing was "Winging" instead of "Whinging." Very well proofread.

I don't agree with you on the issue of Hermione's age, but that really has nothing to do with the story as a whole and so it's not a big deal.

Good to see you back in action.

I was so happy when I read my emial today to see that you had updated the sequel. I've been really anxious to see how Harry does at the Dursley's with all his injures. I would not worry about your expectations I think this chapter was brilliant! I really like all the details of Harry's exhaustion, it seems very realistic. The scene's with Bill and the Dursley's were very funny. I hope Bill teaches the Dursley's some lessons. I think it would be funny! I can't wait for the second chapter I hope you update soon! This chapter was great!:)

I loved this first chapter! Thank you so much for continuing the Power of Emotion. You are a brilliant writer and I look forward to reading more. I'm hoping that there will be some kind of blow up with the Dursleys and everyone will learn once and for all (instead of only suspecting) how awful they really are. Will Bill ever figure out its Harry that has to clean up all the messes he makes? Does Dobby know? Where does he sleep? Okay I'll stop bugging you so you can go write. Update soon!
Freida chapter 1 . 11/19/2004
WOW...you have absolutely no idea how excited I was when I went in to check my e-mail today and I saw that you had an author alert. I opened it, and saw that you had started the seventh-year fic, and I WAS SO EXCITED! It's only been one chapter, not much advance in the plot yet, but still I must say fantastic job. I really enjoy reading your story and I have began to once again feel the excitement I did back in June everytime you added a new chapter. I'm happy I will have something to keep me going now. Thanks Melinda!

I understand how hectic life can get, so all I can really ask of you is to update as soon as you find that you can :D

Finally!

I've been waiting for this sequel for so long! You don't know how pleased I was when I got my author alert.

Make it long. Make it good. I know you can...
Ted M. Hammett chapter 1 . 11/19/2004
I am absolutely tickled to death that you have started the sequel to "Power of Emotion." That was an excellent story and I look forward reading its sequel. I won't review this chapter because I know its great I will give a review to both chapter 1 and 2 when it comes out, I was just too excited to not let you know right away how happy I am that you have started the sequel.
Dianne chapter 1 . 11/19/2004
I waited for this with extreme anticipation! And I wasn't disappointed! When I read the part where Petunia doesn't approve of Bill's appearance, I could almost picture Mrs Weasley deciding for the first time, that she like it now that the bony mean spirited Petunia disapproved of it, even though she had always, up until now, begged Bill to get a haircut and take out the earrings. When you describe Harry as tired and restless, I like the oxymoron, just because a person is tired physically, it can be very annoying not to be able to rest because your mind knows you shouldn't be tired. I think everyone can identify somewhat with that. You are off to a great start...or finish, to power of emotion, if you look at it that way too. I know everyone who liked the first part, poe will love Curse of the damned. I love the Weasleys, so for me at least, this story has it all, and I can't wait to finish it to find out what end you have in store for everyone.
Lupin123 chapter 1 . 11/19/2004
Hurray! I am SO glad you have started to post this! Well, so far I like your beginning. I am very curious as to just how Harry is hiding his extra chores from Dobby...is he trying to do them while Dobby has popped out to get more food or potions? And I just love Bill in the big brother role. He is such the perfect person to keep an eye on Harry and help him out. The "gigolo" comment had me laughing.

I am wondering also just what is up with Dudley. Is Harry right that the memory charm isn't up to snuff? Or just why is he acting the way he is towards Harry? Actually kicking the ball back to Bill and Harry? If it was just that he was scared of Bill, he wouldn't hang out in the same area, so it must be something else.

Dobby was just killing me, too. "Harry Potter has a full bladder..." good grief, Dobby! Just what is wrong in your brain that you would blurt something out like that? ROFL! Poor Harry had better keep Dobby away while Ginny is around. I can just imagine the things he would say while in front of her. Dobby is worse than a well-meaning parent...speaking of which, I can't wait to see what Remus' role will be in all of this after he recovers. They never really did get a chance to talk over what happened at Christmastime and I think that Harry would be more likely to spill something (though maybe accidentally) with Remus than anyone else. And I would think that Remus would like to get some answers about just how his friend's son has grown up.

Anyway, yay again for you writing this story for us! (Gosh I sound like a teenager again...must be regressing in my excitement!) Don't worry about our expectations-I know we won't be disappointed in your writing!
