Bwahahah! I love this! This is great, the whole Harry-makes-a-movie-out-of-wizarding-events idea :D
Very creative. :)

Lovely. A quirky way of dealing with evil by damaged 'heroes' who find a way to profit from 'the insanity that never ends' of the stream of dark lords and ladies.
Can you imagine though the reaction of the mundanes (as I think calling normals muggles insulting and degrading by such a small bigoted minority). Many people can stomach watching gory movies and video games simply because 'we know' it's not real. Learning after the fact that a series of bloody movies we all enjoyed were repackaged historical events would be sickening (consider thinking back to an audience cheering as the lead evil dude gets torn apart and then learning that someone really experienced that...)
All considered, I did enjoy this story sequence so long as I don't look into it much further than the written scope of the story. After all, the above potential revelations only matter to the story if the author chooses to make them an issue. If not added, they shouldn't matter beyond a simple 'what if?'
Thanks for the story.

Brilliant fic. I really adore everything you've got going here. All of your ideas are brilliant. Your Lily reminds me of a less evil version of Lightning on the Wave's Lily. Love your Azkaban Harry, as well as your sensible one.
Thanks for writing,

roflmao strange and amusing chapter indeed
| Banner chapter 5 . 1/26/2008
That was awesome. You took an idea to its logical extreme - and made it work so well. Smart, tough Harry is my favorite.
| HarrySirius Fan chapter 7 . 1/26/2008
Fantastic chapter! It would be a fantastic story and if you ever do write it I look forward to reading it.
| blue artemis chapter 7 . 1/26/2008
This is an excellent set up. I would seriously follow this story.
| Gogolu chapter 7 . 1/26/2008
Great setup story.
Snape is still out there as is probably Crouch Jr.
Maybe it is start of out of wizarding world story? Crossover or something like Miranda Flairgold epic. World is big place with many secrets.
Snape with his Potter hatred and hots for Lily can find some out of box way to muddle things up.
Also don't make it Harry story, keep it James.
| ranma hibiki chapter 7 . 1/26/2008
now THIS would be a fantastic idea!
please say you have plans to continue this

very good. i've always hated when people make james out to be dumbledore's most ardetn supporter. i'm glad to see some of that true marauder spirit come into play.
| dogbertcarroll chapter 7 . 1/26/2008
Found one mistake. You said Harry instead of James about some planning being done.
| Memory King chapter 7 . 1/26/2008
This is the second 'Twin-Who-Lived' story I really liked. The other is Ksom814's Unknown Relations series. You're right about the setup, something more of this would be great. Sirius could find about Regulus's betrayal, leading to the discovery of the Horcruxes. James could use the Elder Wand to deal with the rest of the criminals. I think it would be best to finish before the twins enter Hogwarts.
I noticed you sometime called James Harry, you need to fix that. Excellent work on the story overall, looking forward to more ideas from you. Keep writing!
| aboulhosncc chapter 7 . 1/26/2008
I like this story it seems to have a fairly different presence than the ones that have been written before. I like the fact that they are twins and they actually like each other. The idea that its dumbledore's idea to separate the love is refreshing. I think you should be careful with the names as you mixed albus with voldermort and harry with james other than that a good start
| AmetheSecond chapter 7 . 1/26/2008
Wow. That's so cool! I'm so glad James didn't have his head up his arse! Interesting take on Lilly ... I can see it happening that way. Very cool! Great job of writing!
