I have to tell you that I absolutely love this story! I think you have the characters pegged perfectly, at least from the Potterverse standpoint prior to book six. You also have them progessing in a very natural way.
I have to tell you after books 6 and 7, with it both being the end of the series, and those books being downright dreadful, I fell out of th HP fandom. I had stopped reading fanfiction of Harry Potter almost altogether. Mostly because the stories reflected those awful books or were just awful. SO thank you for this story that I truly found by accident. It's truly wonderful, and made me remember why I loved Harry Potter and H/Hr ship so much.

Will harry and hermonie be able to break the dark curse on Harry's scar before the third task? Love the story and looking forward to more. Will hermonie be in the lake for harry or will Dumbles pick Ron again?

2 nice chapters there, I like the goose vine, Does it go for targets of opportunity, or choose it's victims by cuteness?
How come Harry's developing perception of magic didn't help him pick up the presence of the animagus?, or was she masked by the overall magic of the fairy garden?
Cn't wait to see dumbledork and his spying portraits torn into a hundred pieces each.
thanks for sharing

This story really is gripping. Each time I get the alert in my inbox, I turn into a five-year-old-on-christmas-morning. Please, keep writing this epic story.

still a good read. we're really seeing harry and hermione's break from dumbledore. the ball was a nice, almost normal experience for them, and we're seeing harry change his regard to his enemies. good work, update soon!

Nothing in life is simple so while Harry ackowledges Hagrid's role in his placement with the Dursley's he also sees that Hagrid if not innocent is only a dupe. I had hoped Ron would pull his head out, but his reaction to a percieved slight at his sister shows that might be aways off.
| Vilkath chapter 3 . 7/13/2008
Sort of a filler chapter I suppose, despite going to somethign big as the Yule ball I really don't feel much of importance happend in this chapter. Harry and Hermonie are still getting along, Dumbledoor is still pretty evil and Harry is taking his lumps from every one. Seriously the reads for Harry to come back to hogwarts next year are looking mighty slim. Self study, tutors or even a foriegn magic school would be a way better choice. Hogwarts is nothing but death and danger, beyond just what Voldemort offers Dumbledoor himself doesn't seem to do anything else with his time but put Harry's life in danger.

oh evil dumbydork! but then again he's got to either evil or the dumbest son of a bitch I have ever met or heard of!

I like it that Harry didn't need to do a thing about Ron, Ginny did it before he needed to. Ron, obviously, still hasn't learned to think before speaking. Meanwhile, Draco is definitely learning the better part of valor. I do think it interesting that Harry's already cottoned onto the portraits spying on him; Dumbles is not going to like that. Continuing on, I love it that Harry's slowly but surely identifying all the spells on him and dealing with them in appropriate manners; when he removes that monitoring spell, the reactions should be "enlightening". That Harry has already found the peculiar nature of that curse behind his scar gives him a much better shot at dealing with it, esp. if Remus or Sirius realizes what it most be. And all of this is in addition to his growing abilities means he's maturing into his full power and rabilities much earlier than I suspect Albus wished it; the fun part will be demonstrating that he's still on the side of the Light, even if not on Dumbledore's side per se.
| what are you even saying chapter 3 . 7/12/2008
Brilliant update, I enjoyed every bit of it. Can't wait for Harry's revenge on everyone making rude comments at the Ball...and Rita Skeeter as well.
Looking forward to more.

Nice but harry should go to the DMLE and have them check him for spells during the summer and randomly over the next few years with his permission. Someone as famous as harry is would be a big target for anyone wanting to make a name for them self so stands to reason he is at risk of harmfull spells.
One thing that he could do with thinking about things more is to talk to a group of students about writing a book about his time in school. I figure a group of Ravens and Hermione would love to build a name and it insures the story if the full truth as far as harry knows it. If they pool resources they can get a pensive and see the events from harrys POV. With a magical oath for the truth from harry it could really hurt dumbles in the eyes of the public. If you wanted to you could have them make a series of books each covering one year with the titles of the real books.
If harry dose get pulled to the grave yard after you will need him to start carrying a vial of things that react bad when both are mixed into a potion. A salt pill with 2 sections could work well. would dissolve fast and add 3 ingredients into a potion with at least 2 of them explosive when mixed.
