A good story.
| FireRebel chapter 19 . 1/28
Wooaahhh! I've read this story and I still love it. All the details. Just enchanting really. I like the animigus qualities and the Potter crests. The wedding was super cute. Lavender and Ron. Very interesting. Luna. I like that you have her a nice part her and Neville. Fairly overlooked characters. Just fantastic the grangers as well. Wow. Not enough words to describe. Unfortunately this review is the best I can do as I'm running late I spent too much time reading. Still great story!

Excellent story. I felt you kept the characters very much "in character" with their book counterparts. I love that Harry and Hermione pursued becoming healers rather than Aurors or bureaucrats.
I'm glad you finally gave Dumbledore the justice he deserved. I particularly liked the way you used Remus, McGonagall, the Sorting hat, and even Snape, among others, to show how certain very specific decisions DD made over the years gradually changed him into someone even his beloved mother and sister couldn't stomach. That was well done.
It would be interesting to hear Ron's reaction to the Potter kids opting out of Hogwarts. Frankly, though, between the Grangers, H&H, and the Elves, those kids could easily be homeschooled in both magical and Muggle subjects to the level where they could pass OWLs, NEWTs, and SATs with flying colors.
Again, great story!

Well, I guess that answers my Snape questions. Apparently he even has a companion now - a marked one, but then he has a couple of marks, as well.
Ron continues to be clueless. I fear any kids he and Lavender have may be rather gormless ... although Lavender does seem to be showing the stirrings of common sense in her assessment of the behavior of Ginny, Luna, and Neville. Too bad she didn't use that common sense and apply a contraception spell. If she really is pregnant, she is probably stuck with Ron ... or at least tethered to him through the child.

LOL at "Little Ron's" predicament. I know that sounds cruel, but Ron is such a clueless, selfish arse that I just can't care!
The wedding party sounds appropriately decked out. Now I suppose we can only hope they are left in peace, something that seems unlikely, given the situation. At least everyone there is a capable fighter, except Hermione's parents. And I wouldn't put it past the two of them to have concealed weapons on their persons.
Now for Snape ... Will he go for revenge or opt to kill Voldemort and skip town?

How did Anthony get in Ravenclaw? He seems rather stupid to be trying to press his affections on the woman engaged to Harry Potter.
Yikes! Dumbledore is worried about Harry being dark? He has lost all common sense ... If he ever had any to start. I'd say a Head of House plotting to attack and rape a student should qualify him for a lifetime in Azkaban, if not a trip through the Veil. I'd like to see what happens to him there when James, Lily, and Sirius get hold of him? Dumbledore has gone 'round the twist for sure.
| missgsmith51 chapter 15 . 1/28
It seems to me that Snape has been causing Harry harm of one sort or another for years, on his own and through the unchecked bullying by Draco. Why should he need revenge?
| missgsmith51 chapter 14 . 1/28
"... thinking everything was once more right with the world." Alas, words like that at the end of the chapter tell us it couldn't be farther from the truth.
Snape's comments to Dumbledore seem to indicate that he thought Draco had done nothing to warrant dying. Didn't he know Draco was marked and had been going on raids and killing innocent people? Snape continues to be a fool where both Harry and Draco are concerned.

As much as I hate violence, it is certainly a fact that putting Death Eaters in prison does not stop them. They are repeatedly broken out and do worse damage each time. It may be that the Mark itself makes them incapable of remorse, as it is inexorably linked to the evil that is Voldemort. Whatever the case, it seems that executing them is the only way to guarantee they will not kill again.
Thank goodness the muggle government seems to recognize this and is prepared to stop the carnage with whatever it takes.
| missgsmith51 chapter 12 . 1/28
Imagine having such a gift of healing. I agree with Emma: Why can't it be like this all of the time?
I'm now hoping that there is some high tech retribution on the way to Voldy's lair. With the Horcruxes (including Harry's scar) destroyed, he should be mortal, able to die in any manner.
| missgsmith51 chapter 11 . 1/28
It was really nice of Lavender to point out the city where the Grangers lived and worked (NOT). She's on her way to becoming the next Rita Skeeter, not caring whom she endangers with her words.
I hope Harry was able to portkey everyone out before the place exploded.
| missgsmith51 chapter 10 . 1/27
Ron has always been jealous of Harry's fame. At no time was this more apparent than during their fourth year. In his blind envy, he accused Harry of lying about entering the Tri-Wizard Tournament rather than believing Harry's claim that someone was trying to get him killed. His latest tantrum was about not getting his share of the publicity following the battle to save Xeno.
Neville understands the danger of Ron's jealousy and how acting out at the wrong time could endanger them all. Sadly, Ron doesn't get it. He doesn't get a lot of things.
| missgsmith51 chapter 9 . 1/27
If Dumbledore is such a genius, you'd think he could figure out that Harry is tired of being controlled and manipulated. I hope Amelia slaps some of those magic-inhibiting cuffs onto the old man; otherwise, Fawkes will the him right out of his cell.
| missgsmith51 chapter 8 . 1/27
LOL So Harry will accompany Hermione as Puck? Perhaps, if Albus and Snape are given the boot, Harry might be willing to return to Hogwarts. Maybe ...
Ron continues to be a git, a condition which seems to be terminal. He really is better suited to Lavender. He'd never be able to handle the regular Muggle contact with Hermione's parents, and it's obvious that they do not intend to be shunted aside, save for a few holiday occasions each year. They seem perfectly willing and able to assimilate into Hermione's magical life as much as possible.
It's amazing that there were no real casualties among the rescuers. The Dementors and DEs took heavy hits, and Riddle seems to be getting worse. It will be interesting to watch the Ministry try to spin the story, especially after getting an earful from Tonks and the twins.

Dumbledore and Snape are beyond ridiculous. Him. I wonder if Snape apparated out of the lake to go on the raid ... I'm also curious to know how many DEs are left.
