Dinomus chapter 1 . 5/31/2011
not too big on reimaginings but i like it when done right or at least readable. please don't change it. i like the idea of harry and daphne meeting before the train left. it's fun when he meets daphne and her family before first year. i hope to c a progressive relationship that is believable and not super crazy and ends in potter-greengrass coming together. curious about astoria though. update soon.

sn interesting beginning. Nice touch using Astoria as the catalyst for Harry meeting the Greengrass family.

Depending upon your plotline, it would be amusing thinking about the Weasley family standing around wondering where the heck Harry was so they could 'bump' into him.

Looking forward to a very different train trip to Scotland next time.

I like it, keep it up!
Siven80 chapter 1 . 5/31/2011
Mmm, good start.

Nothing much more to say so far though, just keep it up :)

Only thing i will say tho is that i noticed a ring and i hope you dont use the whole lords/heirs/seats/marriages stuff and try to keep it more realistic like the books (other than the books horrid pairings).
Naginator chapter 1 . 5/31/2011
Nice liking this and though I like slytherin harry, this canon harry would be eaten alive there and I personally could never see with how he grew up always getting in everyones business saving everyone id think he'd have more self preservation instincts, kinda hoping ravenclaw and that daph sets him right soon
monbade chapter 1 . 5/31/2011
good start. Wonder if Ron will make an appearance to be the supposed best mate

Also what house? Hopefully ravenclaw for both that would throw a wrench in dumbles plans

TheFanatics chapter 1 . 5/31/2011
Interesting so far, can't wait for the next chapter!

VERY interesting. I've seen a handful of stories in the Harry Potter fandom where people write "what if's" but I've never read anything where Harry gets close to the Greengrass family. Please, keep writing. It's always great when someone has a story that's original and unique. Have to ask though, will Draco be making an appearance in this? Seeing as how he did marry Astoria, of course?

Anyways, if you have time, I'd love for you to check out some of the one-shots I've written on my profile. I've got only three so far, and they're M, but I'm working on more at the moment, as well. I'd love to hear your opinion! Thanks so much and, really, great job! -Vonne

It is a story I've seen before but one I will usually look into. I do hope that you don't go down the path that most writers do by going to the extreme with the cliches, especially with Ron, Hermione, and Dumbledore. I'm not saying make them the same as cannon but a little more then just Ron is super jealous, Hermione is super know-it-all and bossy, and Dumbledore is super manipulative. When I see that I stop reading. I do like the pairing and all the opportunities a writer has when developing an undeveloped character. The Greengrasses in your story seem nice but I would caution against making them too nice. They're a neutral family which would mean that they have a balance of both Light and Dark so that they can never be perceived as either. All in all, it's a good start and I look forward to more.
