I like Crookshanks too (in my fanfics he's so huge that standing on all fours his shoulders reached Hermione's knees), but you really should mark this as completed...

I would like to inform you that your boyfriend is evil if he had you change your previous ending to this. I a sitting here bawling because Crookshanks died. How could you do that. I loved the whole story and thought it was very well written with great flow. I especially loved Crooks' personality. Going to look through your other fics now.

That was a wonderful story and I liked that you ended it with Crookshanks death. All of our furry friends that have a shorter life span than ours. He lived 36 years at least. It had WAFF all over it. The midle was a touch cliche but as an author has said before "They are cliches because they work

I had been hoping it would be Harry telling her that he found out that John was actually married or something and had a family, that's why he never invited her over and couldn't make certain times available and that he'd just been stringing her along. That was rather optimistically naive I guess. At least I recognized what was happening when I saw the direct evidence of the potion bottle so I'm not completely clueless.
Doing something so aburdly stupid and desperate doesn't seem completely out of character for him but him going through with such an absurd plan before at least confessing his feelings to her as Harry seems much too dishonest for him. Fear of losing someone he cares about does drive him to his stupidest acts though. Is Harry at 25 impulsive enough that he wouldn't have thought about what his endgame would be? If he tells her the truth she ends up devastated, or he can break up with her as John or point out some awful fault with John while he is Harry and break her heart and swoop in as Harry to console her. Actually he's just stupid enough to decide that staging a huge fight with her as Harry and leaving the country and cutting ties with everyone or maybe even faking his own death and then spending the rest of his life as John for her would be an acceptable plan over seeing her hurt.
I'm rather hoping he was just being his usual self with zero ability for forward thinking and was just desperate to be able to go on a few dates with her and that he didn't have some devious plan where he hurts her and then swoops in for the rebound. Seeing him do something that sneaky to protect someone I could buy but not him doing it so he can end up with Hermione. Comes across too selfish I guess and when he's only acting in his own best interests I view him as rather guileless.

Good story but I hat e crooks dying made me want t cry my eyes out. I know he died happily but I still don't like in his case reincarnations is true. H did so much for them he'd deserve it.

Lovely story! Of course the premise is self explaining... which cat would not preserve the right to judge a new person in her human's life?Just good that Crooks has so excellent a taste that he approved of Harry even in the John-disguise.
I'm still a bit undecided if Hermione's decision to break everything completelly off for three long years and not even talk it out once was quite in-character, but it gave the story a lot of friction and drama and so it probably was not too bad a decision even when it might have been very un-Hermione-like...
And finally... what is it always with coupling off Ginny and Draco? Wouldn't that require a very much changed Malfoy even from a book 5 perspective like i guess this story has had when it was written? Why should he date a mudblood and a blood traitor like he at that time explicitly still saw both females you put into his life afterwards... why not some Death Eater spawn or grey family child like e.g. Daphne Greengrass (I'm not sure HER name was known after OOTP, Astoria's definitely WASN'T) that would not only be closer to his established worldview and persona but also not hate his every bone? I can see the need to "wed Ginny off" so she can't interfere in Harry's relationship, but doesn't she at least deserve a kind of decent guy?

Well if you were honest with yourself and your characters, the real "low point" would have to come AFTER this moment. I can actually understand WHY Harry did it... it must have been easier to cater to Hermione's ad than to come out directly and say he doesn't think she needs to date anybody else and it might have given him the additional security and confidence to truly woo her what he might never have done as "himself"... but not telling her until now was really a bad idea and MUST have consequences, even when Hermione should be able to see his reasons and her own aiding much in the circumstances leading into this mess.
So let him suffer a bit and her sulk a bit and then they can get their backsides up and make up ;)
| Runecutter chapter 5 . 2/5/2013
Oh now you've betrayed yourself... Harry IS John.
How does he expect to ever come out of that mess again? Crookshanks will be happy that he wasn't daft and did approve of two different guys for his mistress but Hermione? That will be quite the explosion coming when he finally confesses!

I LOVE CROOKSHANKS.
I've been looking for ages to find a story like this. Well i was looking for a Hedwig POV story but then Crookshanks was great too. When I found the story, I can't stop even though its 1 am in my place. Its brilliant even though I don't approved of Harry's way of getting Hermione. It seems that is the only way he can get her. And Hermione's reaction when she found out the truth was truly acceptable. When they were heartbroken, i also felt heartbroken as if I'm part of the story. When they're happy, I'm happy. At the end, I really felt sad that Crookshanks have to go. I love him so much! :) I want to thank you for writing and sharing this wonderful story. Keep on writing, you had it in you. And please make it HHR. haha.
