|Reviews for Tom and Harry|
| chem prof chapter 1 . 8/1/2005
Looks like the start of another great story by old-crow. You do such a great job writing the Grangers, Scott. I know they're among your favorite characters. I was surprised that you managed to get them into your story already in the first chapter.
I see that a lot of reviewers here are wondering about how the ship is going to end up, HG or HHr. Every one of your stories has ended up with Harry and Hermione together, even the one that looked like it was going to be Harry and Ginny right up until the end.
I think we should have a poll here in the review section! How many reviewers think it will end up HG and how many think it will end up HHr? No fair voting if Scott's already told you the answer.
My vote is HG, but I'm not very confident about it.
(I'm sure udderpd will vote for a threesome.) ;-)

Good start. I always love your Grangers. But I'm not sure Harry would have told them about it after refusing to tell Prof McG and the lion man minister.
Nick started the Order to fight darkness and evil. Nice twist.
As always, MORE! Write faster! :)
Good to see you back!

Glad to see ya back in action OC! The new story is off to an interesting start, great job with the way ginny handled harry and better than any interactions in the new book imho. Greeat job with harry's discussion with hermione parents. ah but maybe I'm just a disappointed h/hr fan. Great job anyways and can't wait to see more! kudos!

Nice summary of the HBP, interesting groundwork for what lies ahead. I'm pleased to see you writing more, and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of this story. Are you going to be sticking with the Harry/Ginny ship? I ask because I've found your Harry /Hermione stories some of the most tastefully and IC renditions of that ship. I can't say that I have a shipping preference just curious mainly.
Another question, do you want the reviews to be over substance only or would you also like to be informed when the odd typo or tense disagreement crops up? (Not saying you have a lot of them, merely that they do occur :-)
Thanks for continuing to write, and I'm looking forward to more of this story.

Hm Look like that Harry Ginny and Hermione is main character in this story. So what is pairng? Well at frist i thought it was Hermione then in middle of chapter it's Ginny but now I am wondering which one! Update asap!

Good start to another story. I was hoping that you would start another story soon as I have been waiting for it. I am just curious, is this going to be H/G or H/Hr. It seems to be H/G but I am just curious as you seem to be a much bigger fan of H/Hr and you are probably the reason that I am a H/Hr fan even if JKR shot that ship down. Keep writing and post as soon as you can.

Yay! Welcome back.
| michelline chapter 1 . 7/31/2005
So far this is really good, although of course, I've grown to expect that of you :) But I'm wondering something. Will this remain a H/G fic?
| BenRG chapter 1 . 7/31/2005
Hey! You're starting a new story! This promises to be well worth it too.
Okay, let's start at the top for now. You've managed to keep the characterisations about right for the HBP received canon, including a slightly more passive Hermione (is she questioning herself?) and a slightly more assertive Harry. I wonder if you are planning to turn this into an H/Hr as your previous stories have all been, or if you want to keep it a canon-friendly H/G (I loved their make-up session BTW). Either could happen from the point at the end of the sixth book, although I personally believe that JKR is a H/G & R/Hr shipper and won't do anything too dramatic in the last book.
You killed Pansy? Did she die in the book (I don't remember that happening) or is this your way of getting revenge for Albus' death? ;-)
Your fanon characters of Dan and Emma Granger are always a welcome sight. I also /love/ the idea that Nearly Headless Nick founded the Order of the Phoenix.
Now, I find myself wondering what Albus' last instructions were to Snape. You see, I'm not convinced that he has betrayed the Order. A lot of things went wrong that night, and Snape's position as a spy in the Death Eaters is an important one, possibly even more important than a maimed, dying 160-year-old man.
So far, so good. Waiting for more!
BenRG's Rating: 7/10

In the time a read the chapter, and added the story to my favorites the reviews jumped from 6 to 11. I think you have a most promsing start on your new story. I like the depth so far. I don't think you should "hook up" H and Hr. Remember, you did promise in another story you would not kill off Ron again. Anyway, an excellent start.
Personally I would like to see a bit more Tonks. Maybe Harry, can take her on as a recaimation project/ big sister thing, and they can hunt the Horcuxes together. Think of the tension you could set up with Ginny thinking there is something going on when there is not.
It has been some time since I have left a review. I like the check boxes. Maybe I never n oticed them before?
| dead feather chapter 1 . 7/31/2005
The beginning sounds really good. Especially Mrs. Grangers list of the murders. That would be one way for Harry to start searching for the horcruxes by figuring out who was the important murder Riddle would've made one.
Voldemort's pretty smart though. Wonder how long it'll take for him to start figuring out what had weakened Dumbledore so. Or perhaps he already knows. Albus did say he was brilliant.
I have to disagree with bringing Ginny back. It sort of spoils the feeling of understanding they had at the end of HBP. Harry has kept Hermione and Ron upto date with everything, yet he never told Ginny. I think that says quite a lot.
I also wondered why tell the Grangers everything? They are muggles, if anyone would suspect that they know, they'd be hunted down. And that Harry so eagerly tells them what he refused to tell the minister or other order members. I do see your point that without help he would be staggering in the dark and that he wouldn't have to be the only one destroying the pieces of Voldemort's soul. But it's also risky to let so many know...
In any case, I hope you'll update this soon :)
