The most interesting thing about this story is one that no one else has mentioned: the story starts off a few seconds before midnight, apparently on the 30th of July 1997, so that the bulk of the story occurs on July 31st, 1997.
However, at the *end* of those ten seconds, after Mundungus is immolated, all of a sudden it is July 31st, 1996... a year earlier!
Is that meant to be part of the whole mystery, that time has been rewound a year? Or simply a typo that has never been caught? I doubt the latter, as at the end of the burning section, the date is completely written out "longhand", *and* the date heading for the "investigative" section agrees with the longhand date... one year earlier than when the story began.
The other odd thing not at all resolved by what there is of the story, is why Mrs. Figg did not respond to Minerva's Floo-call.

Wow, that was great but only if it is continued, otherwise the whole existence and trials of Harry were pointless. The longer story gets my vote.

Well that was a terrible tease. Start off with a bang and a cliffie and not even promise more.
Does that make you a bad person or just someone not to date? ;-)
Depending on what was actually going on, this story could be excellent or just pretty lame.
It's also amusing that so many authors have something magical happen on Harry's 17th birthday but then assume that he was born at the stroke of midnight! They also suppose that magic would somehow follow the calender date when this will be up to a day off of any of the various natural cycles that magic would truly care about.

This is good, so have Harry not be dead. Just thought I'd share my opinion.

I would like to see option 2 - if Harry is dead, it is just pointless IMO - nothing of value accomplished.
very well written descriptive scenes, nice tie ins to the canon, etc, but the story has to have a point to be worth reading.

I'd say go with the lving!Harry story, simply because there will be more of it. This was an intriguing read, and I'd rather see you build it up and reveal parts of it slowly, rather than rush it. You can always have Harry consumed in the end, even with a longer story.
Thanks for writing!

Whoa you got to write the longer version pretty please! This was so good.

Nice. If he's dead the world is screwed. Also seems like it's screwde if he lives.
