|Reviews for Harry James Potter and the Power of a Prodigy|

I know I already put my two cents in but, I still say that the definition of courage is not the absence of fear but the willingness to overcome fear. For that reason I still think that Harry belongs in Gryffindor. He overcame more fear just to get on the train than any other rash idiot in that house ever thought about dealing with. Plus He has already made several friends that are in Gryffindor. He shouldn’t have to be all alone. Since the hat takes request into consideration, wouldn’t Harry ask to be put into the house that contains some people that he is already comfortable with? I just think that even as smart as he is, he belongs in Gryffindor. Ravenclaw is the surface choice. I think you should have the hat look deeper into what he has the potential to become. I really feel passionate about this. If you do put him in Ravenclaw, would you please put Hermione in with him? I can’t stand the thought of him being all alone.

Also if your going to make Harry a Prodigy give him so common sense, don't make him stupid just for the stories sake or it defeats the title.

Nice, different story so far but I hate the cliffies at each chapter end. Once in a while they're good, every chapter...no. Also why didn't Harry use the portkey to get to Hogwarts while he was so sick...surely he realized the Hogwarts seal and letter were sent magically, after all they way the envelope is usually address is telling enough. Harry seems to know enough other odd facts to have know that. And isn't there a spell to tell where a portkey goes?

GRYFFINDOR! He has to be really brave to face his fears like he's done.

I love this story but you could hurry up the writing a bit?
you do know how to let a person impatient, finishing the chapter there.
"he turned to face the source of the disturbance and felt his mouth drop to the floor in shock at what he saw."
what did he saw?

Well first of all, I want Harry in Gryffindor. No Slytherin...I don't like it when that happens.
I can't wait for the next chapter! I'm so anxious to hear what happens when he meets his parents. And also that ending was a cliff hanger...and I can't wait for that either.
Oh...AND we get to find out what's wrong with Harry...wow...that's quite a lot of stuff going on there.
Forest seems pretty nice to me...and true, he does need a parent sort of figure, so it's ok with me. (the whole idea of Forest).
Well, overall this is a real great story you've got going on. It's just perfect, and I have some written stories (very rough) that this story sort of reminds me of...like Harry getting sick, living on the streets, meeting his parents...
Yeah, but it's all stored up somewhere and I haven't showed anybody like you have. It was a wonderful idea that you did, because I am lovin this story.

I absolutely loved the Daily Prophet article! And then Lily and James's reactions...
And poor Harry has gone through so much! You described the sickness very well, I felt pretty sick myself...that's a compliment. James's crying was awfully sad...it's so sweet that he cares so much, though. I just love James and Harry father bonding moments! They are the most adorable things in the world! I'm glad that Lily and James didn't have more kids, same with Remus and Sirius, because then it'd be sort of strange in my opinion. Many stories do that, but I like how this one doesn't. If L/J had another child, it'd be like they didn't care about Harry...which I hate!
Thanks for another lovely chapter!

Here's my second review for the second chapter:
Yes! A view at Harry's life alone! That was a great thing to include, and it was done well. And his trip to Diagon Alley was interesting. I love it when people react to Harry like that. It must be annoying for him, but I still love it.
I was really exciting when they found out about Harry. It happened sooner than I imagined it would, but the sooner the better!
I like the part at the end with the Marauders and Lily, when they argue about his handwriting being like a girls. That is so hilarious!

A very great beginning that was. Much description of how it happened, which is always good to include, because then it's just sort of...clueless. But I did like the pace that it was explained at, because it wasn't too rushed or dragging on.
The mood was explanatory but also sad, and kind of depressing, but it urged me to read so I could find the happier sides. I enjoyed it, actually, the sadness of it all. Harry's story is very sad, and it's just horrible how he ends up in the wrong hands-different hands. I'm a bit glad you didn't include the Dursleys, because sometimes I like to think they weren't completely bad (even though at other times I picture them as cruel). It was a nice, calm twist.
Poor Lily and James, the loss of your only child must be the greatest feeling of sorrow you could ever feel. It's so stressful to think that they don't know he's alive. Even when Lily believes he is, it's horrible that she can't see him.
I also think I'm going to like Harry's character. It seems smart, and that's good, because leaving him on the streets scared me, and for a moment I thought he might be deprived from any kind of education. I'm glad he knows about the Wizarding World beforehand, that saves a lot of explaining.
Well, that was my review for Chapter 1. Be looking out for the next reviews, I will try to review every chapter as they pass. That's how good it is!

You must always do what you feel is best despite other peoples thoughts. Besides, listening to Harry's POV he truly doesn't sound like a Slytherin despite the fact that THAT is my favorite house...too bad. Lion's house is not bad. Although Harry is not prideful, arrogant, and rash [or idiotic]-maybe Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff? WHatever you decide is okay.
| GinnyLover14 chapter 4 . 5/4/2008
I think Harry is a Ravenclaw.
| HaruJam chapter 4 . 5/4/2008
good chapter. for the record, i like Forest's personality. in regards to his house, i think he'd do well in any of them but for some reason, i want him to go to either ravenclaw or hufflepuff.
