My man's the only one with the real dedication of an author here. Cause he definitely smoked and was stoned to hell when he wrote this fking story. Prolly the same shit harry was smoking to get in the feeling. Cause this is trippy as hell with its fking logic and storyline.
Now man I am asking you to pass that blunt to me cause only way a man can read this story is if he was stoned to hell as well.

Study some Latin please. Just like Animagus/Animagi, the term ALUMNI REFERS TO PLURAL. As in more than one.
Susan Bones would therefore be the only ALUMNUS of Hufflepuff on the staff. SINGULAR as in NOT PLURAL.
Thus speaks a pissed off grammar Nazi, who is fed up with the copious grammatical cock-ups.
I also request that you invest in a decent English dictionary, such as Chambers 21st Century or Oxford English dictionaries. Look up WEARY and WARY for starters then please "find & replace" your frequent errors dude. Pretty please?
WHERE is not a verb, but instead refers usually to a location. XXX WERE blah, blah, blah. The past tense of the verb TO BE, so if you could, please scrounge up a reviewer to check for such errors and hopefully fill in the many missing words I've had to guess at. At the very least, please read over your chapters before posting.
(Um, you'll have gathered by now, if you haven't deleted my rant, that bad writing bugs the hell out of me. My only excuse is that as the son of a primary school teacher, grammar was 'bate into me' to use a vernacular phrase. My excuse and I'm sticking to it!)
Overall, a decent effort, superior to my own [unpublished] scribbles so thanks for the entertainment.

Continuity cock-up. You have Albus saying he's now closed off the tunnel access. BUT, when HP woke after the school ward stone update you wrote that all of the tunnels had been sealed off by that upgrading.
Also, I'm fed up with your misuse of of the term ANIMAGI (the Latin plural) when you should be using ANIMAGUS (the Latin singular) for a single use bracelet and individual animal form. Seriously, did you never learn this most basic of Latin grammar?

The Autumn Equinox date is SEPTEMBER 21st, not August.
The Solstices and Equinoxes occur during the 3rd, 6th, 9th and 12th months of the Gregorian Calendar year. Never the eighth month.

Swearing occasionally is whatever. But it’s clear you’ve inserted it beyond the norm hoping to sound edgy. Unfortunately, it was a big fat failure. Cut out about half of the awkwardly placed f-bombs, and your Harry would sound much more realistic and become enjoyable to read.

Three chapters in and already loving it. Never imagined I'd read about Harry and Dobby smoking weed and getting drunk together but it was truly enjoyable. Don't know if you still actively read reviews but thanks for writing these stories, just wish I'd found them sooner :)

a tongue piercing on a wizard... Who typically needs to clearly pronounce the incantations... Your Harry really did give up on living

I'm usually neutral about books written in the first person, but this one is VERY poorly written. Author, do you know that besides the word “I”, there are many ways to write that we are talking about a character? Maybe you shouldn’t start every second sentence with the word “I”?

Back for another read! Always a favorite of mine! Congrats on your 1500th review btw!

Well, I was alright reading the first half of it, but then you pull Dobby sized Deus ex machina out of nowhere and by the end of second half Harry is now has a fully equipped home, money, means of magical transportation, blocked Trace and all of that is hidden from any observers, including Order watch. And the chapter wasn't even that big. That's just too much too soon, equivalent of equipping your player character with cheat mode before the game starts. The worst part of that approach is that what stops the protagonist to use cheats again during the game? Discontinued reading.

Um, apologies for additional corrections.
Wordwise, please note that the correct abbreviation of YOU ARE is YOU'RE, not YOUR. Your(sic) mistake vis-a-vis that and other incorrect words may perhaps be due to using voice dictation. If so, quit it! (Yep, I'm a sarky old git!)
Next, there is no such language as Celtic. The surviving Celtic languages split about 1500 years ago into P & Q streams. From personal experience I know that Irish & Scottish Gaelic plus Manx are fairly understandable for speakers of these tongues. Manx however is written very differently.
Welsh, Cornish and Breton are very different from Gaelic. Some Welsh words I can identify as similar, in the way some English and German words can likewise be recognised. Spoken Welsh however, I cannot understand. Sad, but I'm so rarely in Welsh speaking parts of Wales I won't fret over it! Breton I haven't heard spoken in about 40 yrs so I've no real opinion and Cornish I only heard in my teens on a BBC program interviewing a few native speakers. Too long ago to have any opinion. I hope my blathering corrects your misunderstanding re Celtic languages. Ciao.

The incessant misuse of the verb WAIVE where in EVERY instance I have seen it used the correct verb is WAVE is incredibly annoying.
TO WAIVE equates to the the verb TO FOREGO. It has bugger all to do with a friendly greeting or hand gesture as you have so persistently abused it.
May I recommend the purchase and perusal of a decent English language dictionary?
The Chambers 21st Century or Oxford English dictionaries would apparently be of some benefit.
P.S. Really good story and generally much better grammar than most FF. Thanks

This is an AU story. If you choose Delia, it’s perfectly fine.
