Four plus years, Harry is. bound to have gotten better?
| Jestrbob chapter 10 . 9/30
Well I love the start of this chapter.
And I wonder how chapter XX and XXX will start, now?
The story for rewind is different.
I know the story appears not to have been updated in a while, but I will set it for an alert.

I think that was a huge mistake for Hermione to reveal as much as she has. Dumbles is just going to keep it to himself and perhaps try and keep Hermione from telling anyone - maybe even eliminate her?
This is his nature. He has been keeping secrets for many decades. I dont see why he would change now - especially not on the say so of one teenage girl.

OH MY GOD YOU CAN'T LEAVE LIKE THAT!
HARRY! PLEASE CURE HIM !
PLEASE UPDATE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
| desireejones99 chapter 6 . 6/21
excellent entertainment, though one would think that Hermione would have taken the hint from Lily, that Hermione is Harry's future mate. Ah well still plenty of chapters for her to figure it our 13 more, and if we are lucky you might be kind enough to write a few more

If you equate the Goblins with the Ferengi from star trek, you will have SOME idea of how they think, act and live.

Por favor actualiza...
Me encanta esta historia y soy completamente miserable al no tener noticias de ti.
Espero que puedas encontrar la misma chispa que te hizo escribir esta increíble historia y puedas continuarla.
espero con ansias esa señal.

Will you ever finish this story?

This is just coffee !
You have performed a very good illusion here. I was thinking about something else (and more emphasized by fact english is not my native).
Very well led !

This is an interesting story, I find it very original (I found several stories where a character was sent back to earlier year with his memory. Sometimes with powers, but it was always Harry. Doing this with hermione is more unusual).
Regarding other parts, i totally agree with your Dumbledore's description. This is not an evil character, to my mind. At least a little manipulative, but he has the global Good as goal. I don't like story where he has personal mind in its actions, as I think this doesn't match at all with the character.
I just find Hermione a little to much powerfull in the last combat. Moreover compared to Harry (even with 2 more years), Harry has pretty done anything during the fight.
This is a real shame that you don't get the time or the motivation to continue this story. This is a one I would like to ask the permission for a translation into french. But this makes me frustrating it is not a completed story. Well. never mind.
(just please forgive me if some words are not well chosen, I'm a french guy, so this is kind of translation, and not fluent words).

I understand this is an AU and if you say it is so in your universe it is all well and fine, but in case it was not intentional, according to canon as I understand it was three things that combined kept Harry alive:
1. Lily's protection
2. Voldemort using Harry's blood in his ritual to restore his body
3. Voldemort's horcruxes.
The blood ritual linked Lily's protection to Voldemort, which was already in harry, so Voldemort was not unlike a horcrux for Harry, for as long as Voldemort's body survived, Lily's protection survived, which thus kept Harry alive.
I am not entirely sure if existing horcuxes for Voldemort were necessary or not, but I believe if there were none horcruxes left, Harry would have died from Voldemort's killing curse, AND the link BECAUSE of Lily's protection would have killed Voldemort as well. This was not so, so Harry could choose "in King's Cross" wheter to go on or not - effectively choosing wheter to die and kill Voldemort's current body, or live and let Voldemort's body live for now as well. Again I emphasize this is not how normally a horcrux works, the heavy irregularity of completely surviving is all because of Lily's ancient magic used.
I find that many fic writers are under the impression or are intentionally making the change that it is owning all deathly hallows that saved Harry. While this is quite possible and believable, and canon information is not absolute - the characters might be wrong -, the canon book still describes otherwise, and according to that after Voldemort's ritual in fourth year, Harry is effectively immortal.
I theorize that Voldemort was able to kill his horcrux/soul part in Harry because it was his to begin with. If any other wizard would have tried - after the blood ritual, but I am unsure whether horcruxes are immune to AK, they might have needed basilisk venom or Fiendfyre to kill Harry even before that -, Harry would have simply lived with the horcrux intact.
Also this is why Dumledore said it was imperative for it to be Voldemort to strike Harry, and tried to manipulate everyone to this direction - Harry had the possibility to choose to live every time he was killed, and thus there was a loop inside Voldemort's and Harry's immortality. Only Voldemort had the power to kill himself, for he had an immortal horcrux in the form of Harry - if he did not destroy it himself there was a possibility that no one else could. Maybe with the exception of harry if he chose to die when he died.
This is obviously more a theory than not, it is possible that Fiendfyre on Harry would have done the trick, but as these were obviously undiscovered branches of magic, Dumbledore might have thought it more sure and maybe even easier to make Voldemort try to kill Harry himself.
My point is: Harry should have lived, normally, even though Voldy hit him with an AK.
Unless canon was wrong or you intentionally changed it for it to require the Hallows.

Inheritance: Surely you meant 30 galleons. 30 percent is ridiculous and an outrage, I would pretty much threaten the goblins with withdrawing all my assets if they tried to pull that one on me. And would actually carry out my threat if they don't budge to a sufficient extent.
I'm assuming 1 galleon is worth around 100, a knut thus being about 20 pence, which sounds realistic to me. If you want a galleon to be say 5, the price for inheriting could be greater, but both the Blacks and the Potters are supposed to be RICH and 30 percent IS and outrage.
If the goblins are actually serious, I might even start thinking about creating my own bank. PotterBlack fortune should be enough to do that, but I might try to get other rich families' help if necessary.
Also there must have been a contract made with Sirius, I would want to check that out, not to mention that Sirius might have already paid the goblins for placing the inheritance in their hands, thus this being a robbery by way of Harry unknowingly legally accepting that they may take 30 percent of his vault.

You do realize, that a simple incendio/fire does not damage most dark artifacts, right?
Maybe Hermione can't control Fiendfire, but I don't think it's wise to leave them around; at the very least she should drop off an anonymous tip to the aurors someway fast, so they can be there within minutes after she disappears. Something incriminating that gets them to actually search for illegal dark artifacts, which I'm sure Borgin should have a few.
