Wow! What an amazing story! I personally so t mind the all powerful Harry stories and you did a spectacular job with character development further from what is usually shown and I love the animigus. Oh gosh just overall an amazing story I didn't want it to stop but its length is not to be overlooked as there is so much packed into this story. Just wow!

O_o I'm torn between wanting to feed you to the dementors and complimenting you. Although reviewing in the middle of a story should be compliment enough so...

I had hoped that Fawkes was right and Dumbledore would come around. Darn.
I totally, absolutely, adore this story. It's incredible! You have a wonderful way of letting the relationship between Harry and Ginny grow. It feels natural - not like the hurried 'OMG I'm in love let's have sex' type that many fanfic authors are fond of (not necessarily excluding myself here *blushes*). Which is fun, in its own way, but it really feels good to read a fic that actually has a slow, realistic development of the relationships between the various characters. Also, I love your character development. The 'golden trio' becoming a lot less golden, while all of them still mean well in their own way, is so far from the bashing of Ron and Hermione that's often performed - I really enjoyed reading this.
Harry is a bit of a superhero, what with his wandless magic, mindspeak, double animagus and so on. Still, it never gets boring because even with all these talents, he often barely manages to escape alive. That's also a great bit of writing. Besides, seeing people get what they have coming for underestimating Harry - and later Ginny - is fun to watch.
I love all the mystery you include in the fic. That golden glow surrounding Harry and Ginny, how exactly flame travel with Fawkes' help works, what additional spells Harry may have put on the portkeys... I can't wait to read more! :)
Alright, I'll stop gushing now. Just know that I really, really hope you will pick up that apparently abandoned sequel at some point and continue it. This story is too good to die such a sad death.

I suspect that, rather than "castrated," you meant "castigated". You may wish to look them both up. GOOD story, though!

Anyone know another good fanfic like this where Harry's powerful and helps the war effort even while in hogwarts? I live these kinds of stories. Good job fake a smile!

So awesome. The whole thing. U struck the perfect balance of powerful talented Harry combined with hard work. Also urs is one of the best stories where Ginny is the gf. U did a brilliant job of making their relationship natural. It moved from a friendship to a romantic relationship with reality. One of the things I never liked about the canon pairing before is that it seemed forced and random. U did a great job avoiding that.

Brilliant chapter! Bravo!

Good story, your galleon value seems to be way off... One of the books mentioned that Weasleys only had 1 galleon in their vault, so 70 Galleons for robes seems to be bit pricey, I read somewhere that galleons are easily 90 dollars in value

Nevermind my question about whether this is the end or not, I just saw the sequel. :P
| pinkpixcee chapter 28 . 11/25/2013
So this story is over? You marked it as complete, but it doesn't say the end or anything. I just want to make sure it's really over. Anyway, I loved it! One of the best HPGW stories I've read!
