Awesome, pity, it wasn't updated in the last years ;_;

This is a wonderful story, well-written with an interesting storyline (thus far) and good pacing. Where's the rest of it?

Very good writing. I like the way you imply that Narcissa was 'Crucio'd in order to extract the intel to attack Harry, without spelling it out for us.
I always imagine that magic is something that the US military would have a great interest in, and there would be a fairly large proportion of the small US Wizarding population hired by secret military defense projects and attack forces.
Perhaps it's for the best, but if you have to call in the muggle government, or US troops, magical or mundane, magical Britain has essentially lost the war. (It couldn't happen to a more worthy government, IMHO.) This implies heavy loss of life in the JKR character set, and an very AU or AR fanfic. That can be a good read, but appeals to a smaller audience.
The farther you get from JKR's plot line, the more you need a strong outline or timeline to keep you going. The reason there are so many unfinished fanfics is that the author just started writing from a canon takeoff point without thinking adequately about the sequence of events after the break from canon events.

The best thing I like about this story is that once again, America has to save Britain's butt from the fire. Since this story was written by an American and J. K. Rowling is British and gives jack squat about America except for the royalty checks (Please excuse the harshness), I like this story's perspective as I am also American. I also noticed the parallels between the war with Voldemort and World War II. I also enjoyed the fact that an American who saves Harry and the wizards imprisoned at the internment camp from almost authoritarian British officials. This story also brings up the merging of the Muggle and Wizarding worlds which I had an idea about once and find fascinating. I wonder if J. K. Rowling is working up to something like that based on Chapter 1 of Half Blood Prince. Either way, I thought this story was pretty good and hope that it is finished soon.

I don't have enough time to write a proper review unfortunately, but lets suffice to say that your writing is REALLY good. I definately look forward to reading more!

Hooray for Americans - we get right to an answer. Don't sit around all day talking! Where ARE the American wizards?
Technology Magic answer to everything. Including lycantyhropy.

The true political background behind Harry Potter as presented by Andrew Talon is a scary thing. Probably better for all those kids who read it to stick with the less-scary (less-realistic?) version ala JK Rowling...Should have guessed you'd turn it into a political story, with mandatory enlistment of 'foreigners'. I'll keep reading now, and keep my mouth shut.
| Senda Kenobi chapter 3 . 3/22/2006
I hope you will continue with this story. It is well written and the plot is quite fascinating.

You have very vivid imagery and you obviously did your homework with the ship names. But there can't be that many wizards, can there? If there are only three Wizard schools in all of Wizarding Europe, then that would indicate a pretty small population, especially since Hogwarts seems to have less than 500 students.
Where are the "millions" of wizards coming from? I doubt Voldemort knows enough science to have access to cloning chambers...

Keep going! Keep going! This is good!
Loved the bit with Remus and Tonks. Very funny! :-)
| Wings of Lead chapter 2 . 7/25/2005
Interesting concept, I'll be looking to forward chapters about this story. Also, speaking as an American, the only reason why American Forces would probably be so lenient is because they haven't hurt many, if any, Americans. British muggle forces would probably hold resentment for the wizarding community, while America, and a few other countries outside the Voldemort's influence, are probably looking at the wizarding community in open curiosity (negating any bigotted idiots from various forms of religion).
Though dealing with dementors with aircraft isn't probably truly effective, due to their small size as a target and possibly manuverability. I'd always think that scientists would instead try to form, possibly airborn, poison. If that failed, maybe even an engineered fatal disease or virus formed specifically for dementors. Unfortunately the engineered disease also holds possible repercussions of it mutating and infecting humans in turn...so I wonder what are the effects of a flu virus on a dementor after its been engineered to work on them? Speaking of that, just a sudden curiosity. What if a dementor could become addicted to anti-depressents?
