And the diverted river returns to its original path to the sea... and Harry proves once again he really is a dunderhead Gryffindor... (You all now - genuine Daft Morons)
(I should say one of my all-time favourite stories is 'Harry Potter and the Daft Morons'. I think I've read it at least 20 times...)

Another interesting chapter - I'm loving this version of Snape...
jaqmaq77 chapter 25 . 10/1/2021
I like the changes... it's quite refreshing...
Just something I was curious about - in chapter 23 you wrote Justin Finch-Fletchley... for some reason I thought it was Finch-Finchley... but now I see it I'm thinking I'm wrong...

Oh... thats just nasty... and a great prank... revenge really is a dish best served cold...
jaqmaq77 chapter 23 . 10/1/2021
So elder Malfoy strikes again... but I don't think in canon he was malicious... I don't think he knew about the Basilisk... if he did he would have pulled Draco from the school.
I always thought Marie Antoinette got bad press - I don't think when she said, "The peasants have no bread - let then eat cake," that she was being nasty - I think she was like every rich person, ignorant of the real world...
When a friend was complaining about having to chose between heating or eating last winter, one of the mates asked, "Why not use some of your savings?" and got, "What savings?" in reply... Danny really could not understand not having savings... He really could not get his head round poverty...

Well, Draco's in black and white - Is that the opening line to the old Virgin detector joke? (you paint your privates half white and half black - and if she says, "I never saw bits that colour before," She's not a virgin...)
Like Draco telling Goyle he thinks Crabb is gay. Goyle asks "how do you know" and Draco answers... "His bits taste of poo..."
Sorry, sorry... it's a brilliant story and I just found I had nothing to say...
jaqmaq77 chapter 21 . 10/1/2021
Wow... now that was a very clever chapter... Snape's 'Chief amongst slave's; is a brilliant line to kick them in the arse with... really good chapter to a very clever story.
jaqmaq77 chapter 20 . 10/1/2021
A fun chapter that had me smiling... this is a very 'feel good' story.
jaqmaq77 chapter 19 . 10/1/2021
Happy Harry seems to be sweet... His desire to please is weird in a kid brought up in a house without love, but that's just back to the Nature/Nurture argument... that I honestly believe... I have two sons that are chalk 'n' cheese - no difference in upbringing or the care and love given... but the one is the kind who would work hard and loan you his last penny or save someone from drowning - the other would save someone from drowning by dint of taking his foot off their head... after he stole the guys last penny...
jaqmaq77 chapter 18 . 10/1/2021
Sweet and sugary... and I can feel my teeth rotting, but love it...
jaqmaq77 chapter 17 . 10/1/2021
So sad... the old saying, 'Hindsight is better than foresight.'
'Oh what a gift the lord could give us - to see yourself as other see us.'
Or...
'Think well before each action - what's done you can't re-call.
It's no good to pull the trigger - then try to stop the ball

But I prefer to be the happy forward thinker who jumped off the Empire State Building...
As he passed each floor he was heard to say, "It's all right so far..."
jaqmaq77 chapter 16 . 10/1/2021
Oh dear... will Harry forgive? Poor Snape - he really can't let his hatred of James go.
This really is a most enjoyable story.
jaqmaq77 chapter 15 . 10/1/2021
Quite a large divergence from canon, but very well done... a left turn out of nowhere... and now we head into uncharted water, where there be monsters... Remus in first year - but why would the stone still be there when Tommy-boy is gone?
jaqmaq77 chapter 11 . 10/1/2021
Five chapters read upstairs on the tablet and for some weird reason the tablet refuses to let me review - and I'm too lazy to go back...
Last five chapters were very good - I like seeing the story from Snape's point of view - it's unusual, but very well done.
jaqmaq77 chapter 5 . 9/30/2021
Damn it! You made me laugh again... Story just gets better and better...
