| NobodyLikeMe chapter 7 . 11/25
One of the funniest stories I've ever read! Absolutely loved it!

Brilliant, as usual. This is really a quality piece of work. I loved how Harry named his kid...he had so many choices in canon, but he went with Albus Severus and that always pissed me off. Thank you for remedying that as well as not having Harry suddenly see Snape as redeemed just because he turned out to actually be working for the right side.

Y'know, the "Susan Bones seperated her leg from the rest of her body" is a miff painful to read.

Haha! Again with the sock filled with a half brick! Every time it comes up in even more hilarious ways! I can only imagine what would happen if it was used against Voldemort. Taken down by a lowly muggle thug weapon!

When I read the part with Black and Snape and all of Harry's weapons, I couldnt stop laughing for a full minute! Something about the crossbow and that sock filled with a half brick just struck me as hilarious. I think this changed the way I see Harry...

I seem to suffer from a "Loving the stories but hating the endings" Syndrome :D Poor me.
Both the breaking into Gringotts thing and the going into the forest to die moment are in my opinion far below your otherwise wonderful work in this story. And the jump from the ghost station in the afterlife back to the main fight against Voldi and his crunchers of lethality is nastily abrupt, which translates into "could have been written better"...
Still, the idea to have Harry compensate for weak spellwork and bad grades with ingenuity and sneakyness was well presented and almost everytime nicely used to the best of effects (okay it turns a bit one trick pony like towards the end with only the fireworks getting ever larger and more powerful, but it's good fun all in all.) and the epilogue of your story is also a wonderful bit, showing rightfully how useless too mushy scenarios are and how you can convey a good impression of two decades gone by with only some simple paragraphs without even giving up things like who#s his spouse (*cough* coward *cough*) or how many other children (and what their names are) he could have... just some well used details but generously vague so everybody can fill in most of the things with their own preferences... excellent work there.
Oh and Kudos for NOT twisting the thing around in the end and having him gain back his awesome superpowers of absolutely magicfulness and such a crap... the story needed something down to earth to finish it properly and you found some excellent ideas to convey that feeling.
But be honest, please... the multiple and long names are just so that stuck up (or expressing it slightly more nasty... touched in the head...) witches like Hermione, Molly or Ginny have a hard time using that "if i call you by your full name it means you are in deep trouble mister" tactics, right? :D When she's finished to call Freddy that way she must have forgotten for what she wanted to shout at him anyway :P
I had a lot of fun reading this over the course of two or three days

lol, fantastic fic!
I wish Siruis hadn't died though...
I'm super pleased with How you wrote Snape's death scene. In my honest opinion, that's exactly how Harry should have acted towards Snape in the book. But oh well...

Though you probably won't read this, I salute you.
'The power the Dark Lord knows not' indeed. Common sense.
A refreshing perspective. Good job.
