that chapter was okay
| The Vorpal Eskimo chapter 12 . 4/8/2010
"...the legendary wandering hero Harold Shea..." I love this story very, very much, but that allusion was enough to increase my enjoyment at least fivefold. I adore the series greatly. Is he native to this universe? Do his books exist in Harry's collection?
I eagerly await the next chapter.

Oh, no, Voldemort (or not?) as defense teacher, at least he seems qualified. Good Chapter
| nxkris chapter 12 . 4/8/2010
great story. i love ch5 with draco and harry, and then the whole sorting hat thing, and the entire thing with harry was great, though you managed to spend an extremely long time shopping, though it was at least interesting. update soon.

Ignore the impatient people who want the plot to advance every single chapter. You're doing fine.
Harry is right to worry about becoming a Dark Lord. "I will break your pathetic little remnant of the Dark Ages down to pieces smaller than its constituent atoms..." Yes, running something like the French Revolution in the magical world is going to make him look an awful lot like a Dark Lord to most of the current magical population.
Nice nods to some of the flaws in the canon text. You have an opportunity to flesh out Ravenclaw house here, and get Harry some time in pursuit of his checklist before hitting classes in earnest.
Eagerly awaiting more...

So, if I'm getting it correctly, everything in this HP universe is 50% insane over the original?
Loving this story so far.
| Jay Man1 chapter 12 . 4/8/2010
If Frodo gets to be a Jedi then Sauron gets the Deathstar. So we are faced with what may be a significantly more possessed Quirrell and a Dumbledore who is more cautious of Harry's curiosity. Well I never claimed this story would be boring and I am glad you decided to deliver. Omnipotent soda aside I am glad for the quick updates and refreshing uniqueness to this story. Thank you for the chapter.

Great chapter, I love it !
The Comed-Tea is it omnipotent ? Could it be the key for the victory of the light ?
I wait the next chapter impatiently and thank you !

Wow. GREAT Chapter.
This Quirrel is very interesting
I suspect Comed-Tea to actually be a hallucinogen, or similarly mind-altering. Quite possible inducing accidental magic.
I like the Ravenclaw house rule about mealtimes. Sounds like a way to stop a Revenclaw Dark Lord. Give him an interesting idea, then don't remind him to eat. Or *breathe*.
To-do 1 sounds like Harry might come to Occulemency and Legilimency early, especially if Occulemency offers the usual fanon benefits.

What would have also been funny was if he had been sorted into the new house... of the Sith. Although, writing straight HP fanfics are difficult enough, mixing in the much more difficult SW universe (if it had been a crossover) would be plainly impossible.

When I first saw the omake I thought LAME! Then you said the chapter is gonna be up tomorrow I thought COOL. You gave a time frame and stuck with it. Now the chapter is up and I got to read a little more about this Harry. win/win
| uo-chou chapter 12 . 4/8/2010
Wow, this Hogwarts seems much more insane than the canon one! I look forward to reading more, excellent work. Just something I noticed; this story really shine during Harry's conversations with other people. Not to say that this chapter wasn't good because there were no two-way dialogs; just that you seem to be especially good at those.
| Kumoatsu chapter 12 . 4/8/2010
hm... Now that is interesting, the hat would probably have that spell put into it other wise the test of salsazar would have probably been removed or remodeled over the years but on something like the hat would be considered irraplaceably so it would be kept in close to perfect condition. nice.
| Meneldur chapter 12 . 4/8/2010
Not much to say, and I'm hurrying, so I'll simply say two things:
Please don't have Harry abandon his plans for world domination with the comed-tea; I really want to see how it will turn out, and what Hermione's reaction will be to such an obviously impossible thing being possible, and possibly Luna's thoughts on the subject as well.
Harry planning on going to Minerva regarding the Hat's comment sounds brilliant, and I can't wait to see, the consquences, though I do hope Harry gets to learn from the Basilisk - the lost knowledge of the Founders, right in front of him! Spells in Parseltongue! Wonders Galore, etc! But wouldn't it be more appropriate to star with his head of house Flitwick, who will then go to Minerva if he does not know the answer?
Until the next chapter, Meneldur.
