| Media theorist chapter 45 . 1/29/2011
This chapter is simply brilliant. It changes everything. Sad that you can't make money from this. Ended Potter would be a great addition to any junior high school science curriculum. That said, I am confident that, with your own characters and stories, you will.

After two weeks of mind-boggling exams and frantic revisions this made me laugh. Somehow this chapter is so light.
| ladyastralis chapter 69 . 1/29/2011
This chapter was just what this story needed.
| Evlyn chapter 69 . 1/29/2011
I liked how in this chapter you put a bit of a background to Dumbledore's manipulation. Really, who wouldn't be at least a bit manipulative after so many years of living and dealing with people?
Another great chapter.
| badkidoh chapter 69 . 1/29/2011
another great chapter
| Fredryck chapter 69 . 1/29/2011
This is just so...lol. I hope Draco won't become a hero as well or else we're all doomed xD
| nitpicker chapter 69 . 1/29/2011
"Hermione told the story, it began rippling out in further whispers even as she spoke." That's a comma splice with no stylistic reason not to have an "and" in there. (On the other hand "...and there was nothing, no sign, she waited for long seconds..." is stylistically justified, even if it is gramatically just as bad.)
"said the Sunshine General, sounding like she was trying to sound confident"
Should be "as if", not "like". (I'm willing to give up on "as if she were" - "as if she was" is fine - but "like she was" still really grates).
When Harry says "It's not like I'm an imperfect copy of someone else", I can believe it, because people talk like that, even sometimes intellectual British boys. But that doesn't mean it's OK to write like that.

I don't have to actually tell you how much this chapter is made of win, because I'm sure you know it. WOW! Equality. :D I love this. More female heroines are totally needed and this was wonderfully, wonderfully believable, right down to the point where Dumbledore manipulated her into it. Beautiful! :D
| MariusDarkwolf chapter 5 . 1/29/2011
I laughed so I hard I passed out from this this chapter, looking forward to reading the rest. You should have tagged this as humor too!

The proud, the PHEW, the sunshines.
| Curly chapter 69 . 1/29/2011
And that was wonderful. Clearly one of the sparkliest chapters so far. Possibly disqualified from competition for the use of sparkle-enhancing spells.

Hero hermione ?
Lets see if she could take the challenge...
Man I am missing Proffesor Quirrel..
Also ur writing is becoming predictable and it is not that mind boggling any more...
| Spoit0 chapter 69 . 1/29/2011
This was a nice counterpoint to all that angsting after the jail break
| Sarshi chapter 69 . 1/29/2011
*rolling around on the floor, laughing*
Awesome. That last line was beautiful. Dumbledore's insane. I have "That reminds me, Dumbledore refused to be my mysterious old wizard, is there someplace I can write to get another one?" as my status message.
*laughing too hard, so stops reviewing*
| PhiJ chapter 68 . 1/29/2011
Quirrell starts to look stupid again in this chapter (doesn't he realise that Harry has a non-dark side? That whatever he tried to do when Harry was tiny probably didn't quite work as expected?) but I'm sure he's acting that way to manipulate Harry. Oh, and I've only just realised the above, and it explains a lot.
And YES I AM HERMIONE! (pretty much, but I am male and 22, and tempted to be neutral, not bad.) I thought it was great the way you portray the struggles between doing good and doing what you want. Even though they're often not as far apart as you (sorry, I) think.
