| Fenris Jin chapter 14 . 7/30
I forgot to note last chapter. I share sentiments with Snape, about gifted individuals losing purpose because they have difficulty finding self fulfillment. That's part of the reason I was dubious to Harry's 'miracles'.
Oh, looks like the backlash I've been expecting from the white magic is coming now? Or maybe it's the exposure to the vaccine? People sometimes get sick when given shots. I don't know how that exposure would translate in magic.

I suppose I can work with the vaccine idea. It's sound reasoning somewhat.

I'm quite please with how everyone was interacting. The Christmas Event at the Malfoys was nice. I actually facepalmed at Pansy's comment though. Did she just say "eww?" at a snake? She's in Slythterin! Blasphemy I say! xD
Well, at least we know Dobby is with Harry now. LOL, I take it this is going to be one of the perks of not having Hermione in his group of friends.
I'm not sure about this eleven year old healing wonder Harry. It's too perfect, I'm afraid he won't learn vital lessons one learns with failure. He doesn't even suffer any backlash.
His magic is overcoming hundreds of years of impossibility(healing lycantrophy) even at a tender age(Eleven!) I fear to see him when he's an adult. He'd be god-like, limitless.. and as humans, we need limitations or else we will never learn to value the simplest things in life..
Or maybe perhaps we will follow the saying, a candle that burns twice as bright, burns twice as fast? That would really be depressing though.

Well.. Remus is here which is good.. But will Harry learn the Patronus without the threats of the Dementors? Hmm..
I didn't realize Tonks was in her 7th year when Potter first entered Hogwarts.

Just a medical note. Third degree burns penetrates past the skin and onto muscles. Meaning, no skin is left, unless you count the leathery bits. You'd lose a chunk of flesh that never grows back before it's considered a 3rd degree. Not sure if that's the mental image were going here. ;P
I like how the Puffs are loyal. They don't go around changing sides when they are faced with the unknown, like in Harry's case his magic outburst. The Lions like jumping to conclusions and pointing fingers.
Cedric is nice. I suppose he's going to have to be the older House mate.. Like say Fred and George without the pranks and more responsible? Oh no wait, he's like Percy, without the stick up his arse. xD I wonder how this will translate to GoF.. xD

Poor Draco. Well, at least it proves that Neville really tends to have unlucky streaks.. Who'd have thought that it really was the broom's fault and not his? xD
If Draco owed Harry a life debt. Neville owes Malfoy the same. xD

It nice that Harry doesn't have to fight Tommy boy with Snape's knowledge of the future events.. I'm worried though that Harry won't have enough experience?
| Fenris Jin chapter 5 . 7/29
Impossible I say! I'm still not over Draco and Harry friensdship and am gushing like a fangirl that I am. Or maybe it's because Puff make me squee? It might be the niceness and fluffiness of the House, I'm not really sure. Still! The colors! xD

Aww.. Draco and his cronies, or I suppose I should call them their names as they're in the group now with Neville Longbottom and Harry! They're so cute! Imagining them as eleven year old tykes is fun. xD
I'm on the same boat with Snape.. Grateful of Horrified? Loyalty and Hardwork, it's too bad the Harry didn't have the enough will to influence the sorting hat(the boldness of the act would be too Gryffindor). But.. But.. the colors! I'm probably just complaining because of the House color. Yellow doesn't have the potential to be the new black. xD
I agree though that it will allow the Slytherins to play nice with Harry without the Gryffindor name causing unneeded prejudice. ...But the colors! I can't move on! xD I like the Raven's colors.. But it's true, knowledge to Harry isn't really so important. I think his loyalty to Snape labeled him as a Puff, just like Neville. Now I realize why you had Harry get a yellow snake! You sly author you. xD
Look Draco's waving to Harry! I'm gushing! XD

So far, I think Potter wouldn't mind being sorted to Slytherin. xD
| Fenris Jin chapter 2 . 7/29
I really think Snape should have taken a lemon drop from Dumbles. xD
Looks like Petunia and Snape had a nice little reunion. :D
| Fenris Jin chapter 1 . 7/29
I'm sorry Professor Snape but.. I can't stop the gushing! It's too cute! An impressionable young Harry and a stiffly affectionate Snape!
I think I'm enjoying this. The only thing I would complain about is the name of Harry's snake. Coral? Really? It's a bit disappointing. Hedwig and Nagini were pretty cool names worthy of familiars for powerful wizards. Coral really doesn't strike much fear nor awesomeness. xD

This was absolutely beautifully written. I had a great time reading it while jamming in my front room to some totally brill American funk from the eighties. Your work has clever plot maneuvering and lovely use syntax and characterization.
