I loved Harry's reasoning skills as well as his reasons to "protect Dursley's behaviour". It's indeed the wish to feel better himself if he believed not everything was bad. But Severus did a great job himself.
I loved the last dialog:
“An’ I can still help with potion ingredients tonight, right?”
“If your homework has been done to my satisfaction,” Snape warned.
Harry rolled his eyes. “ ‘Kay. Oh, an’ Hermione’s going to come too,”
LOL! I'd give a fortune to see that face!

i like that you're having Harry develop some brains here. we all know that he's smart he's just really good at hiding it. it's good to see him coming into his own. now i wonder how'll he will react to seeing Black for the first time.
antoher good chapter and i can't wait for the next!

Another great chapter! And having Harry mistake Voldemort for a pastry was just brilliant. Like always, I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

First "Crunchy thing" and now Volauvent! I could not stop giggling about the "flaky pastry" thing this entire chapter!
But my favorite phrase in this chapter was "a guardian who was strong and strict and *forced* him to accept affection." I can't really explain why, but it was at once funny and charming and sweet.
Much enjoyed, as always.

An absolutely wonderful update to your story. I also have to congratulate you on the Dark Lord Voluvent, I always knew these pastries were an evil concoction, I mean when can you just stop at eating one?

It's so great to imagine Snape's quarters being occasionally the target of Gryffindor firsties :-)
I liked their discussion. Yes, Harry's unquestioning trust is scary. But it's also healthy at that age to have a grownup that he can fully trust with his wellbeing.
Oh, and my favorite part:
"...he now had a guardian who was strong and strict and forced him to accept affection."
Thank you so much for sharing!

This chapter was GOLD! XD I love your Snape-Harry interactions in this fic, but this chapter is just too perfect. _

I am going to be very, very depressed when this story finally concludes. Its fabulous. Your Snarky Snape's character is wonderfully heart warming while holding true to his irascible model. And his approach with Lucius so cunningly done that I could not help but think "Why wasn't it done this way in the Canon? It should have been done this way. It could have been done this way. Why... Why..."
oops moving into rant territory there.

Lovely chapter :) Lots of harry and snape -
I like snape looking for slytherin quallities(sp?) in harry.
"evil wizard named Volauvent" LOL And snape didn't notice at first :) Very nice! Kids who hear long new words often make mistakes, I like all of harrys mistakes.
Oh no, Harry can't say 'You Know Who’ that is what a girl would say... LOL jep mannly pride of an eleven year old boy is very important.
Yes do compare the dark lord to an 9 year old girl! LOL
I like how harry thinks. How he compares everything with muggleschool. Nice work!
"Very special child" sweet :)
Good luck with the next chapter.

Thank you so much for updating early for me! I really appreciate it. It was a great chapter. I love Harry not pronouncing anything right like Volauvent and Izkibibble. And Snape rewarded Harry! Wow. I can't get over how well-written this story is. Thanks again for the update and I can't wait to read more when I get back.

“Oh.” Harry looked over the word, even as Snape happily fantasized about Voldemort’s reaction if he were ever addressed as Lord Vol-au-Vent. Maybe Snape could come up with a hex that forced everyone to pronounce “Voldemort” that way? “I guess that makes more sense. Aunt Petunia used to have me make vol-au-vents for her club meetings. I wondered why the evil wizard would call himself that. Voldemort sounds a little scarier.”
That was priceless!
I really wish that had a Quote function for the reviews, it would make this much easier.
I loved the "Name The Dark Lord" Contest, although I have to agree with Severus, the Mind of an 11 Year old is a very scary place!
I also liked the idea of the "Wizarding Word of the Day" Calendar.
Needless to say, really enjoyed the new chapter
| Laurenke1 chapter 20 . 12/16/2008
Very nice chapter.
Poor Voldemort, spent all that time trying to think up a cool name and it isn't cool enough. I say he should just open up a contest and see who can indeed come up with the coolest name.
Something with Dark...M, how about Dark Dude? Or Baldie? Snake Fellow?
He would need a slogan then too, do you suppose that if he had a slogan more people would be inclinded to join the dark side? "Join the dark side, we got cookies."
"Join the dark side, we don't care how you look"
(As you can see I am far from being productive today and I should be studying for a test, I will go do that now)
Just one last thing, I loved it as always.
