I wanted to let you know that I like how you wrote Snape's character. It's different from most fanfictons and refreshing to read. To be honest I can totally imagine him actually acting like that even in canon since we don't really know a lot of the depths of his character and personality. Also just because someone looks foreboding doesn't mean that their character has to match their looks.
I know it has been quite a few years since you last updated this story and put it on hold but I feel the need to mention that I would be excited if you some time find the will and inspiration to continue it. I also like the idea of the arca trunks, it's a valid and not so far fetched solution for Harry to be more informed and studious. I definitly appreciate that while he is smart and further in his studies than most that he still acts like like a regular boy his age. I imagine it's quite difficult to write him as such since in my personal opinion it's easy to slip into writing him like a miniature adult or move him into a more arrogant or egoisic mindset.

I dont understand Harry. If I were in his place I would feel a huge amount of resentment toward the Dursley's for their ill treatment. There's no way I would give them money or protection. Very odd.

Note: Greek is not written in runes; runes are *Germanic* forms of writing. Greek has/had (because it applies to Modern Greek as well) *letters*. So Harry could hardly study Greek runes, because such a thing does not exist.
Also, I'm sorry, but not able to speak a language because of its complexities? I could understand issues with certain sounds, but not the former. True, he might not learn to speak it *fluently*, or not for several years, but there should be no reason he couldn't learn to speak a basic version of it.

Hi I am posting this here as your page doesn't have a pm option I truly love your story's and I hope if I ever get the chance that you will continue this one. I think you might have been one if the first to come up with a severus hagrid pairing and I would like to see we're it goes. Even if you never finish this it has been one of my favorites for years and I love rereading it all the time. Best of luck to you and whatever you do with your life.

I just found your story, and loved reading it. It's nice to see Hagrid shown as a person of intelligence instead of a bumbling good-hearted fool. I've never read a story with a Snape/Hagrid relationship before. It would be interesting to see where it goes.
I like Neville's development as a wizard, gaining confidence in his abilities. Will Dumbledore try to use him to get to Harry if he can't manipulate Harry directly? Will Neville hide his abilities like Harry does?
What about Scabbers? Can Harry sense something off about him? Will Sirius escape by third year or will Harry get him freed? Will Sirius come to live with Harry, and if so, will he and Snape fight or try to get along for Harry's sake? I can see Harry choosing Snape's side over Sirius'.
I hope you can finish this story sometime. I really like what you've written so far.
