HAHA. This is a great chapter. I particularly love the chaos at the end. The snowballing is very well orchestrated. I feel almost like Madam Malkin and her assistants.

Very good story. I don't read FF, but this is good.
As to why the prime-time thing did not work, my guess is that Harry made a math mistake somewhere. My first thought was that 181429 was miscalculated, but 397 and 457 are it's prime factors. My next guess is that he made a mistake somewhere in the (997-101) * 397 457 3561,69 multiplications that the experiment required, got to the end state of 997 x 997, left the paper blank, and started the loop again. But that could only happen if he blew 397 x 457 each time. So my final guess is that the the time twister had a stack overflow somewhere in there bad enough to convince Harry Not To Mess With Time, which he promptly forgot a few hours later, messes with time, and is reminded by the Remembrall.

I think I love you. Just saying. Excellent story thus far. Engaging, good flow, well thought out, interesting character portrayal.
Looking forward to more :)

Just discovered this last night. EXCELLENT work! I have a theory about this Harry: He's Voldemort. The Potters may not have ever *had* a child, but if they did, that real kid died real good in the climactic encounter. However, the Good Guys managed to age-regress Voldemort back to babyhood. They also Obliviated his mind into a blank slate, and handed him over to a complete and utter Non-Magickal - if not Anti-Magickal - family, on the theory that such vastly different upbringing might result in Voldemort not growing up to become a Dark Lord *this* time around.

Wow. This story takes you up and down and up and down and up and...
So parts are so hilarious and others are moving and poignant and reading this last chapter about the headmaster made me fell like what I imagine a bad acid trip might. It just kept getting stranger. BUT I can firmly say I am in love with this story and look foward to following it.
I very much enjoy Harry and McGonagall and I'll be interested to see what happens with Quirrell.
What you're doing with Draco is brilliant. His evil/dark/whatever nature is incredibly believable but you can also feel the fact that he is a child and a compex human - not a cookie cutter villian (terrible, hoorrible comments about Luna notwithstanding).
If you do follow Harry through all seven years, I'm eagerly anticipating seeing how Luna and Neville will fit into his life later. Hermione and Draco and Neville and potentially Luna... is this how he will avoid becoming cold while in Ravenclaw?
The scene with the hat was rather wonderful. It seemed that Harry was largely sorting himself, even if the hat was self-aware during the process, and for Harry to urge himself toward Hufflepuff; for Harry to try to teach himself to play the game of Life; for him to resolve not to be a Dark Lord... its all so interesting and intricate and awesome!

Oh, oh goddess, this is too damn funny, and (quite often) so true at the same time! I particularly enjoyed the plot hole scene with the Remembrall and the whole time-travel-revelation scene and and and...
(deadpan to prevent over-excitement) And I can't wait for the next chapters.

I'm only on chapter five but I had to stop and review because this is so beyond splendiferous I have no word adaquete to express the awesomeness of this story.
I'm gonna go back and keep reading now.

"Although this dial with the eight hands counts the number of, let's call them sneezes, by left-handed witches within the borders of France..."
Right, Dumbledore, sneezes. Gotcha. Say no more.
