Hahahaha when Ron gets up and says, "You see! She admits it!" I immediately thought of Scar from The Lion King and finished the quote with, "Murderer!" That was a great missed opportunity. Oh well.

While it doesn't refute your Logical stance, it's worth noting that they chose "Dumbledore's Army" specifically /because/ that was purportedly the Ministry's greatest fear, in order to mock and spite them, and had zero inclination to believe that the Ministry people could get ahold of the list. Out of curiosity, does it say that Marietta was dragged to meetings by Cho and was worried about her mom's Ministry position in the books BEFORE th hits the fan? Because this seems like a case of Hindsight Is 20/20 leading to Mary Sue-style fixing

To be fair, 1: As you're so fond of pointing out that "12-year-olds don't have hormones yet" (which may be true for most guys, but puberty for girls can happen as early as 8, I believe), even if Harry's mentally 30 years old he would then still have a 12-year-old body without hormones and would have no sexual attraction to any form of Ginny yet, so there's no pedophile!Harry, and
2: I've never seen a mind-back-in-time story where Harry tries to get together with a new Ginny so early. As best I can recall, one example had them both go back and thus the feelings were mutual, and they (both) struggled with their bodies not being through puberty anymore; in another, Harry went back and let Ginny go through the diary fiasco again, for the reasons you said, but was heartbroken over it (admittedly the story stopped updating before he revealed he was from the future even to Ginny, so she hasn't found out yet, but Harry was also constantly worrying over it), and he was waiting until fourth or fifth year to try going out with her until the author admitted to getting impatient and ass-pulled them together in third year;

A lot of stories make a distinction between life debts and soul bonds. Anyway, while some of these points are valid, I recommend you to SSHENRY's Summer of the Serpent and its sequels for what I feel is a very decent job of the soul bond idea. The stories also go through the negative aspects of it, including a few you had Hermione mention here. At the very least, I highly recommend to you the conception of soulmates laid out in the last chapter of Summer of the Serpent.

If you're going to handwave Harry knowing things from later on, e.g., bits of Voldemort's past, you should also let Harry be aware of the fact a prophecy foretold he would be the One able to vanquish Voldemort; I think a person being the one fated to destroy you is a valid enough reason for you to try to kill them as a baby and continue trying as long as they stay alive, not the illogical thing Hermione portrays it as.

...I think this way would be epic, too. Umbridge won't know what hit her :D

Hey there :-)
I wondered whether I could use one of your chapters as a prologue for an AU story? I don't know which one yet, I wont be able to write for two more weeks and I have another story going on but Im seriously thinking about abandoning the other one :)

So happy I found this story again! I read it waaaaaay back (as in, you'd only gotten to chapter 9) and then I remembered it a year or so ago and I've been trying to find it ever since. Are you planning to keep updating?

Wow. Your stories really bring out this side of Ron...this petty unrational side that I'm glad Harry is solving. I feel so sorry for Hermione sometimes. Ron seems...I don't know, a tad bit selfish, while Hermione's the one that sees sense and Harry's the one that doesn't stick up for Hermione. The suggestions Harry made to Ron were very accurate, and I felt a more level headed person would've done taht right at the beginning. Just asking, are you a fan/not a fan of Ron by any chance? Some percentage of Harry Potter fans feel sorry for him because they think he's under appreciated, some like him and think the trio wouldn't be complete without him, while others say he's absolutely selfish etc etc. What's your angle?

OH MY GOD. FINALLY SOMEONE FEELS THE SAME ABOUT ME WITH HERMIONE'S HOUSE ELF VIEWS.
As I was reading Goblet of fire I couldn't help thinking everything Harry stated in the conversation, and I'm so glad it's been spotted by you and written about. To tell the truth, I thought Hermione was just thinking of herself. It sounds bizarre because her actions make it seem as if she was caring about the house elves well being, but those actions were really to care about her emotional status towards them. She couldn't stand watching what was happening to them. She didn't understand and couldn't understand them and their customs. It was hurting her to see something that SHE didn't think was right. So she decided to set it right. Not for them, but for herself. Does that make sense to you? Sorry if I'm just rambling and talking nonsense. Anyway, I can't wait to read more.

Holy crap, I loved this. I thought Harry's characterization was a bit shaky, but than again, it was meant to represent an illogical aspect of him. Personally, I felt he was really creepy in this, and was glad Hermione was able to voice my concerns so well. You know, this type of attitude reminds me of Edward Cullen from Twilight...one of the reasons why I dislike it.

Wow, if only the harry potter characters actually did that...
Btw, I used to be XxTigerlilyxX, the reviewer for you Oh God, Not Again story :)
