This was a very fun story. I look forward to reading the sequel.

That's more like a pun than a riddle

Cardcaptor Sakura has a special place in my heart as the first anime series I watched. So does Harry Potter.
It's great to see a fanfic hold up to my rose coloured view of the series.
Thank you very much for the trip down memory lane.

So, as much as I loved this story, it's rather disappointing at the same time. The story itself was fun, but because you try to keep canon entirely intact for both worlds, you end up not being able to actually EVOLVE the world, so it ultimately feels like just a side-story with no impact on either world. That's not a BAD thing, but it does make for a less interesting long-term story. I was looking forward to seeing how Sakura's presence would affect the world more, but after reading the last bit here and how one of your goals was to keep the canon intact, I'm probably not going to read the sequel. If the canon must be maintained, then obviously Sakura will have no impact on the Chamber of Secrets at all, and then it's just not much of a crossover as a Sakura-In-Hogwarts story, which isn't as interesting to me. Still, it was a good story overall, so nice job.

Sakura got sorted into Ravenclaw? What? No seriously... What?
I mean yeah, she wanted to learn how to make new cards but she isn't interested in learning, not really. I mean Sakura has never been one for intellect, never had the desire to study or gain knowledge (in fact she dislikes school and homework for the most part). Her least favorite subject is Math and her best subject is PE. Her redeeming quality (in her words) is her energetic and cheerful personality (her intellect on the other hand, not so much...). I don't mean that to put the character down but she is about as far from a Ravenclaw as you can get. Frankly I'd say Ravenclaw is the house she least belongs in.
At least she has some amount of cunning (keeping her magic a secret and capturing Clow cards, often by tricking them) for Slytherin, though it's probably the third place house for her. Which leaves Hufflepuff or Gryffindor as the houses that make, by far, the most sense for her. She is undeniably loyal, values friendship, and is hard working so Hufflepuff fits well and she is recklessly brave and heroic which fits Gryffindor just fine.

"Your wand... it seems very long."
"That's what she said!"
"Dammit you could be at least a little more mature?"

An enjoyable story all around- I rather like the way it revolves around the Harry Potter story rather than being a direct influence upon it. I've thought of doing the same with other Harry Potter characters myself. I've actually been intending to read this for a long time now and I'm glad I did.
One thing that I did notice as I was going through though was the Skiving Snackboxes. George and Fred didn't start their line of products until Harry's 5th year so they are really early here. I did note a couple other items as I went through, but I would probably need to skim through again to recall them so they obviously didn't stick out as much.

what is brothers thereof and God Mode Sues...? *search at Google*
Anyway, this fic is really really Awesome !
I mostly doesn't like too much OCs as the protagonist friends. Because most people would love to make them so special that makes me annoyed with them. I Love Good Canon after all. If Canon is bad, then I love Good AU. *shrugged*
But this OCs of Sakura's new friends was fun. Not perfect, and wasn't annoying either. Normal with how kids act and good friends. Nice !
Probably going to read the sequel now. ;)

Overall, the story was great to read and had an interesting concept of the crossover behind it. That being said, I still felt a little let down. For all of the climatic scenes and such that involved the Sakura cards, the effect they had on Hogwarts was anti-climatic compared to the grand scheme of things. Other than that, it was interesting. and I honestly expected a little more interaction between Sakura and some of the more prominent book cast. I'd say for an improvement, try to encourage more of the interaction instead of just Sakura being kept so ignorant of the backstory behind Hogwarts and prior to year 1. No one had identified He-who-must-still-be-mentioned-with-hyphens to her and was always just You-know-Who or You-Don't-know-him? Understandable somewhat as Sakura, living in Japan, was unaware of Voldybutt's actions in England, but the pretext there was that everyone thought she would know.. There wasn't much elaboration on it; and to me, that disconnects a bit from the canon story. At any rate, I'll take a glance at the sequel

Maybe if you had posted your rules in the first chapter, I wouldn't have read this. I expected Sakura to interact more with Harry :( I finished this nonetheless... I really like the idea of the crossover, and I totally get the point of keeping Harry as the hero (I support it), yet I wanted them to become friends :(
Sakura's adventure was small (she's not saving the world this time); I was expecting something a bit more elaborated. However, this was easy to read so I don't really have any complains xD.
Still, many questions remain unanswered. Why can Sakura see the thestrals? Why does Snape dot on her? Will Charms always be difficult for her? Will she ever get used to her wand? Are the other students able to see the magical patterns when casting a spell?
It was a very nice story, thanks for writing it :)

Wait, how did Wayne get in the girls' dormitory? I thought boys couldn't enter them.

What an outstanding story! I read all the chapters in one sitting. Good equivocal balance between the two series. And I'd be sure to read the sequel.
| Guest chapter 13 . 10/14/2013
I loved the story although I'd have liked it if it contained more interaction with HP characters.
Likes the Touyax Yukito ... Kinda wishes for more ... Yaoi-Fangasm.
If you've read Tsubasa and xxxHolic youd know clow and sakuraxcoupd kick all dumboldor and voldemots butts. I bet even Voldemort and Dumble and all death eaters combined doesn't haven enough power like the "Earth" card when it went rampant in season one before Yue judged Sakura

This is an interesting story. I notice your effort at not intruding on canon, but I hope you won't be too strict on that in the later stories. If Sakura never interferes with the canon issues then that will eventually lead to a large amount of out of character moments with her not helping when she can. It isn't even an issue of her overpowering the HP series, at least not compared to some of the other Magical Girl series I can think of. Imagine Nanoha or Sailor Moon with their insanely high end energy output, or Homura from Madoka Magica with time manipulation and her army's worth of guns and explosives. Sakura could try her best right along side Harry and wouldn't be able to solve all his problems. This is even more true with you having wands and cards mixing like bleach and ammonia. I'm going to start reading the next one now, and as long as Sakura befriends Luna Lovegood or at least stops her from being bullied then I won't even care if she ignores the basilisk. The thing about putting a protagonist in a different series is that it is difficult for readers to see them on the sidelines when we know they can be right in the middle. It is a testament to your writing skill that you managed that without it getting boring, but that can only last so long. Anyway, as I said before, I'm on to the next one.

Why doesn't she just use The Erase to erase their memories...?
