Great story, I love the way you portray Harry and Hermione's relationship and I'm curious to when they will be reunited with Sirius!
Hope you're still writing,

A very nice idea. But some thoguhts for this last chapert:
1) David goes with Harry into the chamber and is more than worried after the stunt the unspeakables tried
2) A VERY pissed A. Bones goes with him into the chamber (or at least knows that he will be there)
3) Harry has an Auror guard
So how on earth can it not leak to the press that Harry was harmed by the Ministery after he, David and Bones all expressed that they don'T want him to go?
Even if the old Fugde controles the Prophet argument is waved (which I would thought to be wrong at this point in time or Fudge wouldn't be so scared in Book 3) David & Co would rally the troups (the other parents, Dumbels and the order of the fried chicken etc.). For the lenght of the absence it is much much to clam.

I'm leaving this review so that I may eventually get to read more of this great story. Selfish as it is, I hope these prompt you to continue at some point.
Keep up the good work. Its one of my favourites.

Hi, about your author notes... I actually liked how you fixed the problem that the kids were going to have over 'people' just walking through their minds. You are one of a very few authors to introduce rings or amulets that warn of 'mind rape'. And yes while Alan Rickman is a very sexy actor and a very good actor, Snape is a very ugly character.
In fact I would say that Snape and Dumbledore are actually more evil that 'Mort in the books. Both do amazing amounts of damage to the world and to people around them... 'Evil is not always done in big ways... Evil is the small things that occur every day, the tiny cuts that strip our world of humanity one word at a time'. 'Evil is a good man doing nothing'. Both Snape and Dumbledore provide a hot-house where hate, fear, and loathing grow. No one stops the bulling and when someone does try and stand up for themselves or others against the petty cruelty. The bullies are rewarded and everyone else punished - teachers and people in authority are either bullies themselves or powerless.
The only problem I am having is working out which 'Potter' or 'Granger' is which. I was wondering if you could... For the slow readers you have (like me) you could use italics to separate out the Points Of View? Just a thought. Apart from that I am highly enjoying this story and exploring the ongoing changes to the timeline from one change. I love the 'going back in time and fixing the problem' stories. The only stories I like more are the ones where Harry stops when he sees the Vault for the first time and turns to the Goblin and asks "so who has been looking after my parents stuff?" Or any variation of such.
I will leave this... Very long comment... With just one question. How are you going to introduce the idea that 'Harry' could fall pregnant while in a girls's body? Please understand... I am not for or against the kids staying stuck where they are... I am just saying you have left out an area of plot development (so far) and while I know you addressed the kids coping with their 'new' bodies, I am hoping that you expand on it a bit more... I loved how you have the kids adjusting to different magic in their 'new' bodies. And 'Potter' not being a Parselmouth, will 'Granger' be one now? It looks like Magic is a combination of Body and Mind, a theory I love.
With thanks for a good story, Ngaire

So, strangely, it wasn't the summary that drew me to read this, but your well reasoned explanations in your profile to reviewers' fact challenges (being a year and a half older than Harry, I remember those computers well... and the envy for our neighbour when they got an IBM while we were still running our C64, followed by buying games off each other because so many were put out at that time with a disk for both in the box). And I'm very glad I found my curiosity there. I love how you're handling your premise. I also think you've done a great job handling the character shifts created. I'm also very amused by your assessment of divination (one of my favourite areas to muck around with in plot bunnies). I look forward to the next chapter.

Just happened across your story. Very enjoyable read. Hope to see more if it in the future.

I've just read all the chapters, and they're awesome. Shame you haven't updated in a while, because I really enjoyed reading this.

On the plus side, if they're at all intelligent, they'll realize that this means Voldy can't possibly be dead...
(Looking forward to the next chapter!)

Actually, I want to praise your dealing with Snape. This is very much a case where actions that make sense to the protagonists are painfully inappropriate from outside the universe.
(Poor Snape. He's a jerk, he shouldn't be a teacher, but he doesn't deserve Azkaban.)
... I do hope they figure it out /eventually/ though. If nothing else, he's bloody useful.
| FreelanceBum chapter 13 . 11/9/2013
I do hope you plan on finishing this sometime.
Also of course a blood test would show Sky as being Harry, any other result would be absurd.

Honestly most stories like this have a ton of chapters at the beginning, a few in the middle, and a ton at the end. Like a sandwich. Mmmm...plotwich...
| FreelanceBum chapter 9 . 11/9/2013
Alan Rickman and whomever played Draco were far too charismatic for their roles. And fans for them push for their characters to be more noble than they were in the books.
However I do object over calling a murder attempt a "teenager's grudge." Sirius should have been expelled, or given some incredibly strong restrictions for that.

Parselmouth not parselspeaker. Meh, minor, shouldn't nit pick.

1. This premise is HILARIOUS.
2. Did you seriously have Hermione, of all people, think " What? What was that woman thinking, ordering her about like… like a house elf!" HERMIONE?
3. Next chapter button has been calling to me, I can't believe I've managed to wait this long.
