| LupineMoon chapter 40 . 3/2
I discovered this fic yesterday when a friend recommended it to me and I'v been (as you can see) plowing through it. I was a little leery about Harry's ability to use Parseltongue to do magic and am glad that's not taking over. I'm quite enjoying seeing the Blacks and Malfoys from a different perspective. Huzzah for more nice Slytherins, there aren't enough of us.

I love this story, and can only hope that you return to writing, and that nothing has befallen you.

Great story. Are you intending to complete it?

Sirius was a little bit too sane at the beginning.
And I also highly doubt they would treat with respect a half-blood like Tonks.

I think this is a mistake to begin all this circus with Remus looking for the boy - unless of course he will find him and promise to tell no one since he already knows the old goat is going to send the boy back should he find him.
Penmanship of a six years old... Hmm... Well, since Harry since to act more like a 10 years old boy instead of a little child I think nothing should be surprising.
You should drop "Harry..." - using his ex name kind of clashes now that he has a permanent other name.
A major question:
The boy was supposed to grow up in France, yes? How are you going to explain this detail he knows no word in this language?

The first part is good but I really doubt that Dumbledore would approach the revelations and the problem with such fashion.

First of all, I like your writing style. :)
You re still oversimplifying things but since I like this story (and it can be rarely said about any) so I will try to bear with it. Besides I must say I like it this one time - a potion changing all of Harry's being sound ridiculously easy but then again maybe it will save a lot of problems other writers have while writing a similar stories with more reasonable reasons as to why had Harry managed to pass as someone else permanently.
When it comes to grammatic errors I can only give you one advice: commas are your friends, my dear. Without them you can easily change the meaning of the sentence and/or confuse the hell out of your readers. ;)

Exaggeration - with those slaps and Vernon doing nothing. Oversimplification of everything without focusing on details and writing more. Just jumping from one thing to the other. In your opinion all humans reactions can just chance and appear with a snap of one's fingers. It's rater frustrating to read. I hope it will improve in next chapters or reading it is going to be unbearable.

Good, interesting story. Thank you. Would be nice for it to conclude, I'd be curious about how you'd do that.
