I really liked this story! I am sad it ended and wish there was another one but how amazing this one was makes up for it!

He's gotten thrown up on in so many stories it's getting ridiculous.. :)

I know Fang's perspective was to help the story, but honestly, dogs aren't that smart. They can't smell emotions either; that is a ridiculous notion, though I know it is a cliche to use in some stories. Also, Fang realistically doesn't know what boys and girls are. How would he? He's merely a dog, a boarhound to be precise.
Please note that my comments are purely constructive criticism. My words were not meant to offend or insult you. I hope your feelings weren't hurt either. This is merely my opinion, and as a citizen of the United States of America, I have the freedom of the press, to speak my mind freely without fear of prosecution (*shifty eyes, remembering the Alien & Sedition Acts* Let's not start on that, shall we? :P).
Good story, though, so far. Keep up the good work!

If Harry seeing his mother die would have resulted in him seeing the thestrals then he should have been able to see them when he went home for winter break because the 'horseless carriages' are actually pulled by thestrals and they all ride in the carriages to the hogsmead train station

In this chapter you mention that Gred and Forge have the maurauders map, which they got off Filch, however earlier on in the story Lupin uses the very same map to find Hermione when she's in the mirror room.

In all my time of reading fanfics, I had yet to be dubbed a "lovely lurker." The story is great so far. :)

I Loved your story! GREAT job!

Very nice. In your AU, it was fitting that the two wizards who had been holding Snape's life hostage in this world left it together. Really, it was Dumbledore's own doing that he lost his life. Had he not sent the kids down into the fray - in a smug attempt to force a confrontation between Harry and Voldemort in order to fulfill the prophecy - Anubis would (probably) have judged The Fiend and taken him. Period. It would have ended there. Sending in the Stone, something that allowed man to cheat death, he introduced a new debt that required payment.
For all Dumbledore's blathering about ancient magic, blood, and love, I think he underestimated it after all. Those three things had bound both dads to their children - their motives were love and wanting to protect their kids ... and all of the other kids. I guess Anubis judged DD's motives (which I consider evil) and found him wanting.
That Fawkes chose a new familiar speaks volumes. It's as if he found DD wanting, as well, and exonerated Snape. I love how Poppy and Remus are poised for their next steps, as well. I wouldn't mind reading a sequel, if you write one!

So Gred & Forge are now in the "Quirrell loop." I hope this doesn't endanger them, as well. Snape needs to talk to the kids about the Stone, too. The sooner that thing is destroyed, the better.
Harry needs to work on heeding his own inner voice. Draco and Hermione really goaded him into this indiscretion against his better judgment and his heart. I have a feeling the "Malfoy children" May turn out to be a big headache as siblings.

I love Snape and Poppy! She's smart enough to realize that Harry isn't yet ready to share his dad, and it sounds like she's willing to wait until he is. It will be interesting to read (if you write it) Snape's explanation of the kiss Harry saw.
Okay ... Snape's enlisting of the twins in something serious like this is a little weird ... and scary.
Minerva's remark about Remus being "jumped up" is surprising. Does she think his appointment was just for show, and she's still in charge?

I always thought of Madam Pomfrey as much older, but as she is within a few years of Snape's age, I really like that pairing. She certainly knows his history - good and bad - and she has seen him at his most annoying (any time he is ill or injured). She may have been just a decoy to keep Narcissa at bay ... but maybe not. Maybe there is more there than even Snape himself knows.
Love the gift of Lily's trunk. I'm now wondering if Snape will do a sweep of the Hogwarts library and retrieve Harry's property ... assuming it hasn't been re-labeled. (Maybe he should put Hermione on that task!)
It's wonderful that Snape wants Harry to do what brings him joy and is willing to encourage Harry's artistic bent. So many parents have their kids' lives all mapped out, and it sounds as if some wizards even choose their children's spouses. Ugh!

Harry's dizziness with floo travel (and all of that spinning) is probably a result of those early head injuries inflicted by the Dursleys ... the ones that damaged his eyesight.
I wonder if the "dark cavern" ocation of the Naming Ceremony reminded Harry of the Department of Mysteries. That would explain his reluctance to enter. The ancient magic ritual might have evoked fear, as well.
| missgsmith51 chapter 22 . 10/9/2013
Very nice chapter. Having Snape enlist Hedwig to help find Harry was good. It lets her know Snape can be trusted.
I wonder if Harry's nightmares about Uncle Vernon will stop, now that Vernon is well and truly dead. It would be one less thing to haunt his dreams.
Paris ... Do you suppose Snape and Lucius will pay a visit to 51 rue de Montmorency, which just happens to be the home of Nicolas Flamel? If I were Snape, I would. I don't believe Dumbledore, so maybe Flamel isn't really dead!
| missgsmith51 chapter 21 . 10/9/2013
I love the scene between Tonks and Snape. I was just thinking she might be a good match for Snape (if she can muster a bit of decorum), as she appears to have the same kind of spunk he loved in Lily; but apparently she has now moved to Remus. Oh, well ...
I'm wondering where they've hidden Quirrell. Did they tuck him away in the Shrieking Shack? Is that the REAL reason for having Remus come to Snape's quarters to transform? How would Snape explain the wolf in his quarters to Harry, if Harry happened to come down in the night? Just idly curious ...
Okay ... Snape is correct in assuming Hermione has the stone. Now ... How did she get it? Why does she want it? How will he get her to relinquish it? I was interested in the character of Anubis, whom you mentioned very briefly. I remember him as one of the important players in The Enchantress, the final book of The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. Interesting ...
Is Dumbledore determined that Harry must die in order to truly kill Voldemort? Is he going to pursue this course headlong, even though he is wrong, no matter who else he destroys in the process? Or will he turn his "attentions" to Hermione now? Has he perhaps deceived and manipulated one too many people along the way? I hated that scene in the hospital where he was whispering to Harry about the stone and how he had to save it. It made HIM sound like Voldemort!
| missgsmith51 chapter 20 . 10/9/2013
Great chapter! I was wondering how Ron was getting on. It sounds as if he is truly repentant and actually horrified at what he did ... not just upset at having been caught. That means Molly and Arthur are doing a good job.
Hermione's mom is a piece of work. Her dad sounds rather hen-pecked. What a pity neither one could love Hermione as she deserved to be loved; and how despicable they are for getting rid of all of her awards and "treasures." They should have just packed them up and sent them to the Malfoys.
Dumbledore really did go beyond the pale with Harry and Draco. As for bringing Quirrell to Hogwarts deliberately to force some kind of showdown with Harry ... I think he's gone round the bend. I hope they're able to get rid of him in your story!
You know ... if I were Snape, I might want to talk to the Flamels a bit about both the stone and Albus. Then again, if your Flamels are like the ones in The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, they are not above using and damaging others to get what they want. They seem benevolent enough, but they're convinced they know best, and they leave a lot of victims in their wake. Sound familiar?
