I feel i should criticise you although i cannot explain the details.
I feel you do not get the girls rightly.
They are 11 year old children. They are no feminists.
And they are not (yet) intersted in the other sex.
But that's not it.
It is more subtle.
I think you should get a second beta reader who is female.
Better, one who is mother to girls.
And, please do not get discouraged by just one single review.
Still, think about it.

Obviously, I'd like you to continue this story, but cannot vote for it, because of anonymity :-)
It is great to watch people behaving different towards Harry because they suppose him to be a girl or "young lady" :-))
Yet there is a reason for that: Women can be as annoying as anyone, but they usually are weaker than men, so if a man loses his nerves and only hits once that might cause much more damage than intended :-/

I find myself enjoying this far more than I expected to when I first started it. I seriously considered passing on this story in the first chapter, but decided to give it a second chance, as first chapters are often weaker than what follows. I'm glad I did. I find the premise amusing for the most part, and like that you're compressing the books. There's no need to write a seven book saga just because the source was seven books. Not understanding this has led to far too many stories being abandoned long before they reach completion.
The issues I have stem mostly from the way you're skipping over so much. Did the snake incident from book 1 happen, for instance? Why did Harry not reveal what he heard to the headmaster, since this Harry openly spoke about it and led the entire school running after him while he followed the voice? Some things can be excused as slipping his mind-as you've pointed out once with the Ravenclaw Quidditch champion-but so many things are getting disregarded that it feels artificial and forced.
It's nice to finally have something that shows the Dark Lady is under the same curse, in the form of horcrux Riddle calling himself Tom. This makes me wonder what name Ginny read when the diary introduced itself to her.
I've noticed a definite trend in the last few chapters to Harry becoming more feminine. Some of it surely comes from spending so much of his time among girls and trying to figure out how they work well enough to function as one, but you've also started referring to Harry outside of conversations as "her" and similar feminine adjectives/nouns(e.g. "girl" instead of "boy") Is this intentional, or just slips from the difficulty of writing one character with two sets of pronouns? My personal preference is for Harry/iet to wind up able to switch between male and female like an animagus, but then again, I'm a huge fan of transformations of almost any type*.
Regardless, I believe I'll put you on my favorites so I can follow you as you post. Sadly, following stories hasn't worked for me for a long time, so I have to constantly reference my favorites list to see what has updated. Have fun writing, and we'll have fun reading.
*The primary exception being character assassination, transforming a mind(especially against its will) so completely that essentially, the original person was murdered.

Nice & long waited for update . The Group really puts their heads together to solve stuff , instead of the Trio charging into things like in canon ?

Having plowed through eighteen chapters, I' m impressed that you've managed to story so far sith blending canon in with your own additions. Please keep writing and posting.

Wow this uh. This hit me a little hard. I'm here because this got a favorite from someone I respect a lot so I'll give it a few more chapters but, like, this chapter kind of made me nauseous a bit. The way Ollivander talked about dysphoria, the absolute disbelief just. It hit pretty hard and I'm not sure it was intended to.

Surprise update! Always love those. Still, it was more than a bit odd reading all those departures from canon I'd forgotten about, none more so than Harry and co. considering Lockhart to be a GOOD teacher, even when harry KNOWS his books are full of crap!
Also, I feel it was a bit of a wasted opportunity for character growth with Valentines day, to explore Harry's feelings to being trapped in a girls body and having boys writing him Valentines. Sure, he didn't have those sort of sexual feelings in canon until third year, but one would imagine that living in the girls dorms, with girls as his closest friends (who supposedly mature faster than boys the same age), and now having other boys direct their interest his way SHOULD inspire some sort of combination of sexual curiosity and angst.
Actually, thinking more on it, it's beyond a missed opportunity, it's downright disappointing and makes me lament how seriously this story is taking itself. When I first signed up for it all those years ago I was expecting a fun ride full of shenanigans focused on Harry living a girls life, with all the humorous misunderstanding, struggles, and yes, sexual exploration that should involve. That the story has turned more into what's essentially a fem!Harry fic with the mystery of "the Curse" thrown into the mix isn't bad (it's good for what it is) but it is disappointing.
All the same, thanks for the update and I hope you're doing well!
