Hey, Harry's starting to show more emotion...I'm actually amazed the boy didn't try to eviscerate someone for putting both his brother and Hermione in danger. Viktor best watch out, I'm rather sure Harry is developing an aggressive, protective brother persona in regards to his friends and possibly family later on. Haha, if he's like either of his parents magickally I fear for anyone who evokes his wrath enough to spark his magick.
Hm, weird. Tom Riddle just offed his potential future self...huh. You know I wonder, if Ginny's soul was used in Tom's rebirth then did parts of her get integrated into the boy's personality? Er, don't answer that please. That's was the next chapter at some point in time is for. And take all the time you need. Each chapter is wonderful, so if you find the need to rewrite it till you do like it then I am all for it.

Hm, well I actually like the way you introduced the Potters in this story. They are essentially idiots, but they are well-meaning idiots. They really should have picked Harry up after a few years, rather than waiting ten years to collect him...but they are human and logic errors do occur in the human brain. I do wonder if Harry will ever use the gifts his parents got him way back in first year. Hm, short-sightedness would explain a bit of the Lovegoods' issues, especially since theirs may deteriorate as they get older, like mine. Meg definitely fits as a half-Gypsy...can you be a half-Gypsy? I always thought that was more of a life-style rather than a race, but I could be wrong. Great chapter.

Poor Ginny, such a sweet girl...well, once the fan-girl within is crushed at least...hm, so Charlus wasn't a Parseltongue and neither is Harry, I think. Poor Luna. Poor Harry! Go Meg! Pick his head up by his "luscious" hair and smash it against the stairs! Go! Meg! Go! Again, again! Go! Meg!
Sorry, I might actually be a new fan of your OC. I do agree though, Lockhart is beyond creepy in canon and he's quite willing to Obliviate someone at the drop of the hat...I'm pretty sure I'd have done some damage to the slug myself if I'd been Meg. Great chapter!

Well, I definitely found the apathetic Harry interesting, and a bit more likely on a psychological level when compared to canon Harry. Actually, I am pretty sure canon Harry would scare a psychologist quite badly in retrospect. I did like the nice touch of Fawkes reaction to Harry, but I found it more amusing that Hermione and Megan have had more of an effect on Harry than a magical bird did. I am wondering if there will ever be more interaction between Harry and his older brother, but I'll have to move on to the next chapter to discover that, will I not?

I like this. Please continue, at your leisure, of course.

Just reread this. I want to review it again, but can't. So have an extra early chapter review.
I really enjoy this story. Your chapters are a little short - usually doing one year in a chapter feels far too rushed. However I think you've managed to portray your character really well. I've enjoyed his development, the slow thaw from complete hatred of his parents and Dumbledore, to the reluctant acceptance of his parents. Well done. I especially like the way you twisted the fourth year, and how the small changes are growing and becoming more and more important. Please update again, I'm really interested in how 5th year will pan out - what with no reason for the Umbridge thing (or at least no reason for Umbridge focusing on the Potters)

Given as it is now more than a year later, can I assume that is the end?
