Very very disappointed to find this story, see all the great changes you’ve done, and then have the canon story firmly slam back onto the standard plot line with Weasleys and Gryffindor in this chapter.

Grams' revenge IS colorful! I never did like when Snape visited his revenge on Harry just because of Harry's Father, and Dumbledore let him do it by taking Shape's word over Harry thereby tarring Harry with the same brush like the other teachers; I really think that was canon Harry's problem at Hogwarts: Snape was not the only teacher who looked at Harry and saw only his Father, he would've a lot better off if the teachers who taught James, had looked at Harry & seen his motherhood eyes.

I like your story. I loved that Harry wasn't raised with the Dursleys. I love his relationship with his family and how close they are. I also love how Harry doesn't take everything at face value and his more of a deep thinker than in the books. I like that Harry is willing to learn things and is more coolheaded. I also like his friendship with Neville. I also like how you didn't do character bashing! Thank you for that! You made Dumbledore more manipulative than it is said in the books, but not in a way that doesn't fit his actual character. Like the changes in Harry's personality make sense since he was raised in a different environment, but he is still Harry. Dumbledore's manipulative character can be seen as reaction to changes to his plans, but still Dumbledore who does care for his students even if not competently with his blindness and biases.
I did have a bit of issues about how much events stayed the same as the books simply because it made me think to much of fate and very little free will if the future is preset. I am also sad Harry is going back to Hogwarts because a contract doesn't garantee his safety. Like it's not much of a threat if Penny just keeps agreeing to send Harry the next year and let Dumbledore win. Next year the basilisk happens and then back to Hogwarts after chewing Dumbledore out again? Rinse and repeat until Harry defeats Voldemort and Dumbledore is dead and has achieved his goal. Plus if Harry ends with Ginny, then Dumbledore does get everything he wanted in the end, since Harry would probably stay in the wizarding world with his wife, like Lily did with James. He might keep in contact with his family but he wouldn't be close to them anymore. Then nothing really changes, once again that whole predestined thing, no real free will. Plus Dumbledore wins, which bugs me more, honestly.

GO PENNY! times like this, she reminds me of my mom, when they get angry like this, they're like a rottweiler with a ham...please write the sequel soon, ooh, maybe get Aberforth in to side with Penny, that'd be freaking awesome! Stupid Dumbles totally needs to have his (as quoted by Paige) "testicles orbed into a volcano"...at least I think that's how it went, its been a while since I've seen "Necromancing the Stone", I know she talking about orbing the Necromancer's testicles, but I couldn't remember if she said into a volcano or not...have Penny go after McGonagall and Tonks next! have her tear them a new one too!

You're railroading. It's fine, its just it'd be fun to see him do something different for once, likeaybe refuse the quidditch position instead of just meekly going along with it.
Or maybe him repeatedly telling Ron to shut it.
Or possibly even him managing to not let Ron pull him along on the farce of a duel, because hey, filch having spent all night on a stake out of the trophy room means he would be extremely upset with Malfoy for the false lead and suspicious that it was just a ploy to keep him occupied while Malfoy did mischief elsewhere.
As for grams punishment, too public, should start with something that causes him private embarrassment. Or even pain. Perhaps a positive reinforcement curse, if he punishes inappropriately then have the curse give him pain, if he then reverses an unfair punishment or gives an appropriate grade/reward where he would normally have not, then give pleasure. Of course it might take him a while to figure that out.

I have enjoyed this story, but you ended it in 2007 and there's no indication of a sequel as you said would be coming. Please, it's been 10 years. Reconsider and continue this saga.

Good story but too much from canon for me. Hopefully you change that on the second story.
| Mitsukini Haninozuka chapter 21 . 10/30/2017
Please let me know when the sequel will be out. Looking forward to it,

You left out part of the spirit summoning spell...

Yeah. Bored now. You're just rehashing canon word for word and adding a tiny little change here and there. Not even the NAME of this story is accurate. "Wizard of Silence" my ass. The amulet totally ruins the entire story premise, which was interesting until that came up. A telepathic but mute Potter with Charmed magic. But that way you wouldn't be able to copy all the dialog that JKR wrote, so you quickly reversed the mute part. And blindly copied all of her text. I'm out. This story is about 3/10, mostly just for the idea that got squandered around chapter 6 or 7. A mute Potter would be lame, but with the telepathy it had some potential. With the amulet, in Griffindor, doing and saying exactly the same things as in canon? Not even a little bit interesting. G'bye.

Rehashes of the same stuff that happened in the last chapter... This whole chapter could've been reduced to "Harry wrote letters home detailing what happened in his first week of school." There, I just saved you 700 words or so.
