Loved this story. Too bad it was only the summer. would have loved to see how Harry pulled it all off. something tells me you wouldn't have a backfiring elder wand lmao

I really enjoyed this story. I haven't read many Harry/Tonks, but this is definitely one of the better ones. It helps that I love stories super!Harry stories and stories where Haryy is trained by the Unspeakables while still in school (not enough of the latter, I reckon).
Will you be writing a sequel? I *really* want to read more.

lol, good ol' Ron.
That was a bunch of rather tasteful xxx scenes throughout this story. You were able to transition between them w/o it being awkward.
A rather unorthodox stopping point for this kind of story; not bad, though.

| zackie1987 chapter 19 . 7/31
Great ending i hope there's gping to be another story after this because i like tonks and harry together
| OrionTheHunter5 chapter 19 . 7/29
I really enjoyed the story, I found the overall plot to be interesting and well written. The only criticism I have is that the chapters should have been broke up a bit more. I found that it made things seem to drawn out and boring. So I would recommended breaking up the chapters more in future stories.

I have read this fic every summer for about 4 years now and I'd like to thank the Author for this fic even though it's highly unlikely that it's going to be continued. Though there are some mistakes that make even me cringeI'm no native speaker), I was able to overlook those as I read fics up here that had no sentences without such horrible mistakes. Nonetheless, I'd like to recommend this story for everyone who is either not native English speaker or has no problem with some mistakes.

This was such a great story. I hope you write a sequel. Please.
| Yaw613 chapter 19 . 7/19
Please write the next chapter already. Thank you very much. I really appreciate it and liked it a lot.
| Meazm chapter 19 . 7/10
You should continue, man. Arrrggggg! The tension !
| GodricGeoffreyGryffindor chapter 19 . 6/22
More abuse of "wondered" for "wandered".
"funeral march", not funeral match".
Misuse of "trader" for "traitor".
Misuse of "failing" for "falling".
Misuse of "here" for "hear".
"didn't say", not "didn't said". Cringe!
Nice long chapters. Take charge Harry. Yeah! Too much citrus flavor for my taste, but you did give fair warning with the M rating. Not really complete by my definition. The initial premise of Tonks being an Unspeakable as well as an Auror and Order member isn't really plausible. They're all really big time commitments, so it only works if at least one of those jobs is a sham. She spent essentially no time being an Auror. Harry's power levels and learning abilities put him into superpower category. I enjoy a superpower!Harry though, so no harm no foul.
| GodricGeoffreyGryffindor chapter 18 . 6/22
Misuse of "Occlumency" where "Legilimency" was meant.
Misuse of "different" for "differently".
| GodricGeoffreyGryffindor chapter 17 . 6/22
Misuse of "peaked" for "piqued".
Another misuse of "wondered" for "wandered".
Misuse of "temper" for "tamper".
Misuse of "affect" for "effect".
More misuses of "discrete" and "discretely" for "discreet" and "discreetly".
Very dramatic save of Tonks. Love it!
| GodricGeoffreyGryffindor chapter 16 . 6/22
"Rookwood", not "Rockwood".
Another misuse of "discrete" for "discreet".
"driving Sirius and me", not "driving Sirius and I". "Sirius and me" are objects of the verb "driving" and therefore require the objective first person pronoun. You would never say "driving I". The rules don't change for plural objects.
"lay in wait", not "lied in wait". The confusion comes between the verbs 'lie' and 'lay' and their tenses.
'To lie' means to put oneself at rest: "Lie down on the bed if you're tired."
'To lay' means to set something down: "Lay the parcels on the bed, please."
Now, the confusion:
The past tense of 'lie' is 'lay': "I lay down yesterday at two for a nap."
The past tense of 'lay' is 'laid': "I laid the parcels on the table when I got home."
Since in this case Sirius rested comfortably in anticipation of a lengthy wait, the present tense of the verb is "lie" and the past tense is "lay".
Misuse of "vial" for "vile".
Misuse of "naval" for "navel". "navel" means bellybutton. "naval" means pertaining to the navy.
Ennervating (or reennervating as JKR now insists) the prisoners before they are safely tucked away in cells is stupidly risky, especially if you can't use magic to control them. If you can't maintain a levitation spell, then pile them in a Muggle lorry while still stupefied in order to transport them the few hundred yards to the boats. Or they could be heavily manacled to each other like a chain gang.
Misuse of "skip" for "skiff".
"atwitter", not "a thither". "thither" is actually an obsolete word meaning "there".
| GodricGeoffreyGryffindor chapter 15 . 6/22
"your father and us did" is incorrect. "us" is an objective pronoun where a subjective pronoun is required. "we and your father did" is correct. "your father and we did" is theoretically correct but it sounds unnatural. I would probably rephrase the entire sentence as "It was just something we Marauders did on your father's sixteenth birthday."
Misuse of "discretely" for "discreetly".
Misuse of "mystic" for "mystique".
