Well, this certainly is the most normal chapter of the story.
I'm wondering if the entertainment district will play a role or if you were just dodging Malfoy.
And Luna! Loo-nah!
She should certainly provide and interesting perspective on what happens this year at Hogwarts. I wonder what she'll think of the basilisk that...is there but isn't? I'm not sure if she is literally experiencing both timelines at the same time or if she's just seeing the other one happening like when you see a ghost of your best time in time trial mode in racing games.
The Celebi line was clever, but I /really/ think you should let it go at that. Changing all of her cryptids into pokémon is just...weird and I imagine it'd get annoying pretty quickly.
I laughed when Riley got sorted into Hufflepuff and told him to suck it...but you actually made it sound interesting. So, while the part of me that wants Riley to suffer is annoyed with this, I am intrigued by what you've done.
Seriously though, the staff is okay with teenaged boys and girls sleeping in the same room? /Really/?
I'm not sure how Luna got into Gryffindor though. It seems like almost nothing has changed for her that would get her sorted differently. If anything, her curiosity and knowledge bout the alternate timeline would seem to make her even more suited for Ravenclaw.
Jesus. No matter how she's seeing the seperate timelines, Hogwarts must be a madhouse to her, with seeing doubles of /everyone/.
And only one other girl was sorted into Gryffindor? Really?
And finally, the real question: Can Raven kick Voldemort's ass?
She seemed to make easy work of those Aurors and it's not like she hasn't face powerful magical beings before...but would an Avada Kedavera work through her shields?
It's funny. I almost didn't review this chapter, thinking I didn't have much to say, but I ended up saying a fair bit after all.

Your A/N is brilliant. I'm no Pokémon geek, so I'm not sure I could help you. However, Luna is wonderful. Few people can write her well, and you are doing wonderfully. Keep it up!

Luthiel's explanation of why they're are coed is pretty amusing, and with the whole what happens in Hufflepuff stays in Hufflepuff, pretty much marks them as being a bunch of hippies... in the best way possible of course :-)

I'm just starting out this story, but I have to say that I'm surprised how refreshing it is. Ginny-bashing is so common, that I didn't realize how glad I'd be to see her kick a little butt all on her own. Also, the no-nonsense approach to Scabbers is a breath of fresh air. When Harry goes back in time it often takes him months or years to deal with a situation that Ginny dealt with in her first couple of hours back. The only thing I might add would be for Ginny to feed the transfigured rat a sleeping potion or something similar to increase the resemblance between it and the real Scabbers until Ron was safely away at school.

You ruined a perfectly good story with that Riley character. I came to read a Harry Potter story, not a self insert Gary Stue

I admit that I rather dislike adding the new alley, it seems rather unnecessary changing canon (twins had shop at Diagon Alley). Interesting Luna, it must be really weird to her.
BTW, I think that ravenclaw, gryffindor should be capitalised.

Oh gosh. I'm bursting with laughter. Celebi.
and yay Ri's a puff. we need more awesome hufflepuffs.

(This review is meant for chapter 18, but I already submitted a review for that one, so it won't go through.) :/
Actually, I STILL feel like slapping him across the face. Stupid stupid irritating stupid idiot. It's so hard not to hate Riley, even though I can understand why he wouldn't trust Professor Sinistra and the others.
| nupuroo chapter 18 . 5/2/2013
Oh thank God that's over with. If we'd had to deal with any more of Riley being a stupid stupid idiotic bonehead, I might have teleported myself into his world so I could slap across his irritating face REALLY hard. XD
| Anime-StarWars-fan-zach chapter 18 . 5/2/2013
I still don't like the whole subplot with Riley, myself, but I am a big Teen Titans fan, so it was a pleasant surprise to find Raven, of all people, now apart of this fanfic. That should really shake things up! Poor girl, though. It won't be easy for her to find out her life and all of her friends aren't real.

This is alright, but Riley completely ruins it.
| Sean Mulligan chapter 1 . 4/29/2013
Thanks for keeping the story going. What chapter did Raven first appear? I haven't read the earlier chapters in a while.

I originally wanted Riley to go die in a fire.
I've changed my mind.
I've decided it would be much more fitting, and satisfying, for Voldemort to kill him, by disecting him to try and etermin what had made such power latch onto him.
I hate him.
I lik Raven though. Her pressence is interesting.
Can we kill Riley but keep Raven?
And I know you said you know what you're doing, and you said he has an important role to play...but I think that you shouldn't be doing this in the first place and his role shouldn't exist!
I literally do not care about him. The only reason I read the..majority of this chapter was the aniticipation of seeing him getting his ass kicked.
But I liked Raven. Her story is interesting. A magical construct with all her memories but conflicting knowledge trying to figure out her place in the world.
And when Riley's dad swore, I really, really, really, really, REALLY hoped that Riley had splinched him.
Not that I bear any ill will towards his father, I just wanted him to /suffer/ the pain and anguish of knowing he'd, perhaps fataly, injured his father.
And here's is an example of why I hate Riley. He's a god damned idiot. Sinistra explained the whole secret world thing, didn't she? What part of that didn't he get? Hasn't he seen Men In Black?
And don't tell me "no, because it hadn't come out yet" because neither had Pokémon.
I'm not going to say anything about the Teen Titans because the comic existed for a /long/ time before the series.
...and there really was almost nothing to comment on regarding the characters I /do/ give a flying fuck about.
Except Tonks. Tonk's interaction with Raven I liked. I'd enjoy seeing more of that.
And more Harry and Ginny, and Harry and Sirius, and Ginny and Dumbldore and...hell, I'd rather see more Belatrix than read about Riley.

"Moony was none other than our favorite Defense Professor!" - he was professor during Harry's third year that has yet to happen here.
So Riley lost his additional powers? And Raven will learn that he is fictional entity made real?
