Hah! And to think I naively thought it was Riddle's diary!
Unless it is.

That was such a massively entertaining reveal I very nearly missed the last line of the story in my haste to tab over to my reference pages to try and predict where, how, and in what sense you are going to use this new historical character.
Also, cold as ice dude. Unknown curses by sixth years? Real subtle.
Great job having Quirrel's main moment of badassness being 'reading really fast'. In bad hands that would be silly, but you managed to couch it right, and it does sounds awesome.

Oops. There goes Rita Skeeter!
I'm intrigued by all the interaction between Harry and Quirrell. Quirrell harbors the Dark lord and Harry has possible future dark lord tendencies. He'd better watch his step...

You forgot to mention that first the "sixth-year Slytherin" cast an un-freaking forgivable - a potentially worse than lethal spell.
}} "If you have not dealt with journalists before, take it from me that the world gets a little brighter every time one dies."
:) Excellent LOL material.

Yes! Rita is dead-hopefully. And everyone will think she fled in ignominy from her written falsehoods.
| Maxwell Gray chapter 26 . 6/15/2010
oh my, Doctor Mirabilis, a wizard? well I'll be.
| Haud Nomen chapter 26 . 6/15/2010
Pretty sneaky, Sis! You fixed the typo about the metal plate before I could even comment on it.
| mylittlehazmat chapter 26 . 6/15/2010
Just thought you ought to know you have an error in the paragraph explaining the physics class teacher thing with the hot plate yadda yadda ...
You say that they felt that the bit of plate nearer the fire was warmer, and the part farther from the fire was colder ... which makes sense. It's supposed to be the other way around.
You threw me off for like, 30 seconds trying to figure out why the heck they were baffled by the plate being hot closest to the heat. Awesome.

I started reading this story two days ago and you have, in a single story, told me everything I ever wanted to know about scientific theory. I understand you didn't write this story just for the sake of telling people what to think, but it has helped me a lot in understanding how I should look at problems I don't understand, and later on solve them.
That I'm taking advice from fanfiction writers might elude to another problem I have...

I am literally on the floor laughing. OMG! Super smart Harry is so...(laughs hystarically SP?)...And Poor Draco!
| Greytune chapter 15 . 6/15/2010
You know, if I was Voldemort, I'd problaby horcrux the clockwork of Big Ben. The pendulum, or something. For, I mean, if they were to un-horcrux the thing, they would have to remove and/or destroy it. And every single being in England would know within the hour, if not the minute, the Big Ben stopped.
That sounds like something a smart Voldemort would do if he wanted to guard his horcruxes. (Because we know he wanted at least six - in canon anyway)

You posted this story out of order! Any particular reason. Ok...let's see, Act One- cute. XP
Act Two, amusing. :D
Act Four, awesome! XD And interesting. So that's why teachers always want to to brainstorm instead of just picking the first thing that occurs to you and calling that your topic/answer. Why does no one ever spell things out? *rolls eyes*
Act 5- Nice theory for why the Marauder's Map exists. Very interesting indeed...
Huh. Hmmmmmmmmmm. So, Harry's got multiple plans in the air again, huh?
| Animekitty47 chapter 24 . 6/15/2010
lol You made a Death Note reference and a Xanatos from Gargoyles reference, didn't you? *hugs you*
You know, when we touched on evolution in Social Studies/Anthropology/Biology, the teachers always suggested the first two ideas and then just sorta stopped there. Finally, someone spells out the answer. XD
| Syron13 chapter 12 . 6/15/2010
Voldie took over Quirrell's mouth? So Harry's change in behavior and new house changed his plans on how to behave.
| Sdarian chapter 23 . 6/15/2010
A nice touch with that spell. Good job.
