Reviews for Leaping Into Magic
The Gandhara chapter 8 . 12/4/2007
Finding this fic was a pleasant surprise. I had seen the first three chapters elsewhere, and I thought it was abandoned. I'm glad I had the chance to see such an original crossover finished.

You handled things pretty well, maybe a bit rushed at some points, such as Sam's practice training, but I feel it couldn't be helped and the effect wasn't that bad. You did the right thing keeping it short, this plot couldn't fill more that ten chapters, IMO.

Very interesting. I've never seen Quantum Leap before, but the story flowed easily with only a brief summary of the show. I think you portrayed Harry very well, I doubt he would want to live if Ginny died, since adding the death of his only real girlfriend and love to the deaths of his parents, Sirius, and Dumbledore, all of which he blames himself for, with the possible exception of Dumbledore. You have a very interesting style, and I look forward to more good stories.

This is the only cross-over I've ever read; I only read Harry Potter fanfiction, but I am a Quantum Leap fan, and when I read that Sam was going to leap into Harry, I had to read it. I am so glad I did. I loved this story. It was like watching QL reruns on the Sci-Fi channel, only better because Harry was involved. I really liked that you included Harry in the story, both in the waiting room and for Sam to see and talk with. By the way, I too was a young reader often found with a book under the piano, though I spent enough time on the stool to actually become a piano teacher. Good writing!

Wow, that was wonderful. And 'Waterblood' is a great insult :)

Well, I guess I was wrong; it wasn't Dudley! A deranged Malfoy does make sense - especially in the light of the whole "pure-blood" thing.

Excellent story! I have one little "nit" to pick: I don't think Harry would have been quite as quick to believe that Dr. Beeks was really a Muggle and that this really had nothing to do with Voldemort. But I realize the story couldn't really progress if Harry continued to stonewall endlessly.

[quote]“Nobody ever found out, Sam,” Al said sadly as he studied the handlink. “According to our source, there were quite a few suspects- that Potions guy I mentioned killed the Headmaster, Voldemort himself, that sort of thing- but it didn’t really fit their M.O. of attack; they’re normally secretive in when they’re doing it, but don’t leave you any doubt that they were the ones who did it.”

Oh, God, it's Dudley, isn't it? Raped, bones broken, those are Muggle forms of attack. And here we have a large, surprisingly strong young man who's been a bully all his life, hates his cousin with a passion and has been brought up to believe that wizards and witches don't really count as people! What better way to get back at his "freak" cousin once-and-for-all than by raping and murdering the cousin's "freak" girlfriend! And it's not as if it were REAL murder of a REAL person, after all!

{quote]“Nah, he just stopped caring much about anything else,” Al explained, as he studied the handlink. “He took out those… horcrux… thingies that I mentioned earlier, but he kept on ending up fatally wounded as a result. He didn’t even seem to give himself time to heal; just waited long enough for him to be in a position to walk without having to stop in pain every few minutes, and then was back on the field.”

[/quote]

I'm pretty sure you can only be FATALLY wounded once, since fatally mean you die from it. Maybe you could say, "Severely wounded" or "Dangerously wounded." Or "ended up with near-fatal injuries," perhaps.

I really like this story so far.
Dark Dragen chapter 8 . 11/18/2006
What a great ending of the story, I just wished you done one more chapter, where Harry and Sam met after Sam gets back to his time. That would have been cool.
Dark Dragen chapter 5 . 11/18/2006
So it was the asshole Malfoy, who kipnaps Ginny, I hope Sam can do something to help.
Dark Dragen chapter 4 . 11/18/2006
What another great chapter, I've been trying to find this story after I read it on SIYE's but until now I could find it, but now I have, I can't wait to see what happens next. So until time time, keep up the great work.
Sean Malloy-1 chapter 8 . 9/5/2006
Great work on this story it had some very good humor in it. Is there any chance you might make a sequel?
Mayleesa chapter 8 . 8/21/2006
awesome story! :)
Sleepygirl68 chapter 8 . 8/13/2006
Wow! I really liked this story. I used to watch Quantum Leap and really liked how you intergrated it into the Harry Potter realm. I am impressed! Thanks for writing it.
Beth5572 chapter 8 . 7/23/2006
