Hey just read your story and well I like it ALOT! in fact from what I saw from your little note about maybe not finishing this, I sure hope you have changed your mind cause this is one hell of a GREAT STORY!

Excellent chapter, and I completely agree with you about Lockheart and the stupid pratt would probably think that they should be honored because he was a celebrity. Can't wait for the next chapter...

Interesting story so far. I believe that Voldie is now alive and kicking? Hope Harry does not turn out evil even if he considers his friends 'HIS'.

I personally liked less emotive Harry, he didn't have
any weaknesses and now he has four.
The next thing he'll be attending parties!
Glad to see a update on this, great story~!

I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I can totally see Lockhart being a pedo. It does fit awfully well. And i totally get the possive bit (i think it is adorable) I don't really care if harry ever gets along with the Potters but i hope he does get close to charlus.

I just realized that I had favorited some of your other stories, but I had never put you on author alert. I just remedied that. Aha...
Anyway, this fic has certainly caught my interest! I think I like it because Harry isn't staying the same (as in, emotionless or bitter... so on and so forth) but he is actually redeveloping his feelings as he is going about.
And the chance for redemption for Lily and James is always a bright spot. I do, in fact, enjoy that. I don't know if it'll actually happen (and it doesn't even have to happen). I like the fact that they care for Harry, even if that care and love has led them to do stupid things as parents often do. Charlus seems alright from what I've seen so far. He isn't ridiculously spoiled and seems to be a good kid that has taken the cannon Harry spot.
But yes, I think that this series is brilliant and that you should continue it! For as long as you want, since it's your story. But I'll be very happy to read it when/if you update.
So, thanks for posting this up. It was a lot of fun reading it! :33
... on another note... Poor, poor Ginny.
And on the second note... the Lockhart bit, while freaky... does kind of make sense. I mean, with the explanation that you gave and his handy tricks with memory charms... Who knows what he did at Hogwarts!

Great Job on this story. I think you've captured Harry's apathy (and, to be honest, slight creepiness) perfectly. I'm definitly looking forward to reading more!
One thing though- When did he become friends with Neville? Because he seems to appear about halfway through the second chapter and is part of Harry's group of misfits all of a sudden...
Anyway, keep up the great work and update soon!

I'm really enjoying this story (except the scary bit about the rape) and it's an absolutely fascinating type of harry mindset. Having the older brother who apparently cares (but not enough to get off his ass and manke an effort) instead of resenting or bullying him is nice. I did wonder if him walking in and discovering Harry's experiences that year were intended to act as impetous for him to grow a pair and focus on his little brother for once, instead of his own little 'adventures'.

A sign of a good story is that we want to know what's going to happen-it keeps our interest. And that is so true of yours. These are some of the things I would like to know about your story, to be answered in the story and not in a review response!
Does Harry have the lightening bolt scar? Is Charlus the right or wrong BWL? Is Harry more powerful than Charlus? Is Harry connected to Voldemort or speaks parsletongue (goes along with scar question...)? What will Harry say when Lily says one morning at breakfast, "So, Harry, tell us about your friends at Hogwarts?" Will Harry & Charlus have a joint birthday party? Will Dudley beat up Harry this summer? Will Dudley take all of the Potter's time this summer (the time over and above training Charlus), leaving Harry ignored again? How will Dudley live without TV, or do the Potter's have a TV (they have a car)? Do Harry's friends visit during the summer, for the birthday? (Or do Lily and James presume that Harry's friends are his dormmates?) Does Harry get to go to his friends' homes? Does James force Harry to play backyard Quidditch? Does Voldemort have a body, since Ginny is dead? Does Harry have to be "protected" and "safe" if Voldemort is back? What's going to happen in Harry's 3rd year, since Sirius died on that Halloween night that Voldemort attacked? On another issue, I can see that Harry would start to become more human by beginning with negative emotions, but he needs to have a set back somewhere. Surely he's not going to progress to a happily adjusted 17 year old with healthy relationships by 7th year in a slow even progression? He is really mortally wounded, I don't see how he can be "normal"...

I only now noticed the update. Darn.
Thanks for the update, and thanks for including Luna in Harry's group of friends, even if she was hurt badly by that Lockhart.
So I am not sure, did Harry 'take care' of Ginny and the snake? I guess I will have to wait to find out.

The Potters really have no clue, do they?
Sickening with Lockhart but I'm glad several people saw something going on and did something about it.
Nice alternate to the second year. I'm curious as to what you'll do with the third year, especially since Sirius is dead.
