Usually I don't like self-insert characters but I think this is a really clever and cool way to do.

Kind of sad Sirius didn't Avada kedavra voldy. Lol. Would cause a lot of plot problems if he did though, so it all works out.
Confuzed about Aletha rn, going to need to keep reading to find out what happens :p
If you still read these, anyway: you are the best writer ever. You are the reason good stories actually exist in this world.
...no, really. Fanfiction is equal in excellence to the original media nowadays, due to people like you. Never stop writing :)

Just a little thing, but in French, it would be: Toujours pur du cœur. Heart (cœur) is a masculine noun, not a feminine one. It would be a bit of an awkward turn of phrase, but still possible. :) Minor French grammar issues aside, I have loved your stories and find you to be an excellent writer.

Super-fantastic chapter. Danger's spell was very clever indeed. I'm so glad that the pack-parents survived. Lily and James adoption of Marcus was heart-warming, I have to admit that I shed a few tears over him.
While I was gutted about the loss of Marcus, I think the MoM adventure resolved itself perfectly. I particularly enjoyed the two appearances of Dolores Umbridge. I cheered when she tried to be officious with Voldie, and thought her death was well-deserved but not drawn out enough. I cheered when she came out of the wand as a confused shade. But when she started yelling at Fudge to do something, I broke down laughing.
I suspected that Umbridge killed the old Minister, but it never crossed my mind that she killed Andromeda, so that was a nice twist. It's good that Fudge blabbed about Umbridge's murders. Rita, no doubt, is writing everything down. Not only is he finished, but he's wholly disgraced. I loved how Dumbledore berated him on his actions. The stupid old git won't be able to show his face in public again.
The only thing missing for me was a picture of Cornelius' shocked, flabby face.
So, who is going to be the next spy? I'm really worried.
| Sir Punchula chapter 36 . 1/3/2016
In case my review of the previous chapter left a sour taste in your mouth, I want to insert a quick "thank god!" for Molly's "not until she's sixteen" line.
Of course, I don't think she and Arthur are being entirely realistic by taking the news of their only, youngest, underaged daughter getting engaged so in stride, but my suspension of disbelief will take what it can get. After all, Tonks and Remus got hitched in canon, so you're still not nearly as bad an offender as Rowling.
| Sir Punchula chapter 35 . 1/2/2016
Okay, I like the series, I really do. But sometimes parts of it grate on me something fierce and I need to complain about them in review form, and so here we are.
Prophecies are extremely tricky, and I both really like and really dislike them, depending on how they're handled, and that can go lots of different ways. In this series, prophecies tend to be somewhere between "portents that are initially vague yet invite clearer interpretations as more information becomes known", "portents that are clear as mud until the things they predict come to pass" and "portents that are extremely clear and refer to clear conditions". I've listed these in order of increasing dangerousness, and it's the third one that I want to talk about here due to aforementioned grating.
The common problem with specific prophecies (that is, prophecies that call for clear, specific things) is that they are often the sole driving force behind a character's action that would ordinarily make little to no sense. Now, to be fair, JKR is a pretty big offender of this herself: Voldemort's whole fixation on Harry is based on a half heard prophecy, and Harry's "chosen one" status is much the same (why does he have to be the one to kill Voldemort? Because a prophecy said so, that's why).
The bit in your prophecy of the Lion's line continuing is really, really hard to swallow, especially because it's clear that Harry wouldn't dream of proposing to Ginny otherwise. They both repeatedly say, both aloud and silently, that they understand that they are far too young for marriage and that they're only seriously considering it because the closest thing there is to God told them to.
Mentally substitute it for the plot, since the two are functionally identical anyway. When I read this, I thought "Why are they getting married? Because whydoyouneedtoknow's plot said they had to, that's why." Yes, that sounds harsh, but the principle is the same: the characters are hoing to do an extremely out-of-character action because an exterior force demands it. It doesn't matter if they would do so within the context of the story otherwise: they're doing it because that's what has to happen. It just seems to me like a really aggressive and heavy-handed way of enforcing a ship.
Full disclosure: I'm extremely snobby and critical when it comes to relationship writing, especially when said pairing is given out in advance. It just kills all the dramatic tension for me when a pairing happens too soon and especially when the story comes out and tells me, "These two characters are going to be together."

So, now I see two ways that Aletha's memories could be fully returned, along with the memory box thing to partially rebuild them. I wonder what it's actually going to be.
"Here's to a good Super Bowl." I'm afraid I'm not with you on that. My family specifically goes to Super Bowl ignoring parties.

I hate when people die and or go missing. Sitting on edge of seat.

Love your story.

MindBlown! Seriously! I can't praise this story enough. The pack had to face so much adversity and they came out stronger. I think that I have not been on pins and needles so much in a story in a while. Your use of imagery in Luna's vision in the grave yard was haunting and superb. Lucius would do something like that I have no doubt. Luna is some how spelled to respond to his voice like Christine to her Phantom. He has taken her free will away using something her and Draco loved together... I keep hoping for a miracle. As for Aletha and Sirius, I am so amazed at how out of the ashes they have overcome and found each other again. It is different, but the love still remains. I am not usually a Ron and Hermione fan. I don't hate Ron. I just think Hermione could do better. In this story, they have helped and supported each other through some terrible times and the way you have written their dialogue I can see them together. I like cannon Viktor so I was not happy with what you did to his character. I always saw him and his family as the Malfoy opposite. They were pure blood and rich and fought on the side of the light against the deatheaters. As for Harry, I loved how close you made Harry and Draco when they were sharing a room for so long. I like your version of Harry and Ginny it is sweet. The way Draco, Harry and Hermione fought Volemort in the dreamscape was beyond amazing! The plot bunny you had for all of the craziness you gave us was epic. Here's hoping the next story is just as good...

Isn't Terry Boot's grandmother our old friend Sue?

Another great sequel! I loved the references to the movies: The Princess Bride & Monty Python. I wish Aletha hadn't lost her memories but you are making it work, same thing with Ron and his blindness. I plan on reading the next sequel and reading your published work when I get a chance.
