Hey... been a while...you still around?

wish this had been finished
| OrdinaryMortal chapter 19 . 4/20
This is so, so good.
I’m sorry about the writers block; I know it well. This was a fascinating take on an all-powerful Harry while making human and sympathetic enough that we simply accept that this is reasonable considering this Harry was trained by true professionals rather than mostly ‘helped’ by Potter Luck. I also like that Luna, Hermione and Ron were in the story and in the family, but with completely different dynamics. I wish we had the rest to read (is Fawkes now bonded to Harry or simply hanging around?) but I’m pleased there was as much published as it was. Stiil going to hang a ‘follow’, just in case!
| SiriuslyEvilWizardComingThru chapter 19 . 3/20
Great story and sequel. Too bad it's been abandoned right at the end just before completion. Total bummer. We came along this far only to be left hanging.
| LunaLuna99999 chapter 19 . 3/17
This is one of those great story that you always reread even though you know it will never be completed. I hope someone picks it up or the author comes back
| KoldT chapter 1 . 3/12
Would love to read this story, as the first one was so good, but as it seems to have been abandoned, sorry, I just can’t. I’m too old to spend time on unfinished stories, as good as they may be.

Will this be up for adoption?
| Himanshu.99 chapter 19 . 1/13
It has been a lot of years and no progress. Sigh!
| Dadat2 chapter 18 . 12/23/2022
At this point, I must have read this story (and AD) about 15 times. Every time, it lures me back in, every time I know I'm in for a sad ending (because there isn't one), but every time, I'm so so happy that I read this story, and that you pushed through to get it this far, despite everything. Tons of things have changed for me over the years, but this story has been a wonderful, restful constant in my life.
| Guest chapter 1 . 12/8/2022
Very sad that I can't read this story as it has been abandoned. :(
| Revliledpembroke chapter 16 . 10/23/2022
More tone shifts with vast gulfs between them. "Road trip!" to "I leave her in your care, I must lead them away!" To "FIGHTING DEMONS! *heavy metal riff*" to "Lil Girl is Now Wolfman."

They really are fine welcoming a Veela into their forest?
A creature known for their temper and the ability to THROW FIREBALLS is welcome in THE FOREST?
| Revliledpembroke chapter 13 . 10/23/2022
This story makes several very jarring tone shifts.
"Here's Harry Happy and Loving Life!"
"Here's Harry as his two biological sons are MURDERED, along with an adopted grandson and his sons-in-law!.. In revenge, they play silly jokes on the Ministry involving Star Wars, Gremlins, and throwing Nifflers at the Malfoys."
"Here's Harry and the grandchild of his adopted son go on a fun, silly tour across the United States!"
It's one thing if it's the story about a guy who wants to live a normal, happy, prank-filled life being reluctantly dragged into WWII... It's quite another to jump from "happy funtime fluff" to "LIFE IS PAIN!" to "Teehee! Silly jokes and pranks!" and again to "Now we have crazy road trip across America! Look at Harry as he's glad the grandchild of his adopted son isn't a teenager yet! Ha ha! Hee hee!"
| Revliledpembroke chapter 10 . 10/23/2022
Yes, I'd much prefer fluff to this meaningless, over the top, George RR Martin level of violence.
| Revliledpembroke chapter 8 . 10/23/2022
You know... I think I would have much rather have read the fluffy story about everything going right for Harry... for once in his life.
Can you go back and write that? No werewolves attacking the train, just Harry finally getting to live for himself with his massive extended family?
