| JIMIRMA chapter 15 . 3/7
Rather fun. A bit unbelievable on some part, but really no complain here. It really doesn't make sense at all, that backwards backwards wizardly world. It's nice seeing adults standing up for children like this in HP world.

Read this before, reread it again. Good story.
| bluekitnaru chapter 2 . 2/17
nice love it when Snape gets hit
| bkasavan chapter 16 . 2/16
This is a nice story.
I like stories were Harry is raised by Muggles, but there are so few. Do you have any recommendations?
Also, I find it a bit idiotic that she would buy rolling stuff and skillets as weapons, as there are much better weapons that exist.
But it does make for some nice imagery.

Interesting start chapter 1. Couple of brit picks that jarred as I read - Natasja (if an administrator) would be unlikely to be driving an automatic (you pay extra for automatic and most learn with a gear stick if they can) also frostbite in October would be unlikely. In Southern England, low temperature at this time would be 40F and it's a little early for gloves. Harry would be cold though. OK onto the next chapter.

At this any sane mother would be leaving the country

You left out the part where Ron died of a heart attack at 36, while being 400lbs. Overweight and a virgin. While Ginny gave birth to a boy that has some suspiciously familiar platinum blond hair lol. While she was married to a guy with brown hair.

albus didn't give sirius his trial ever, for one reason. Harry must stay at number four. Remember is TPS Albus didn't want Harry thinking about his parents or planning for the future. When he finds Harry looking in the mirror.

I really enjoyed your story and I'm going to check out the rest of your stories as soon as I finish this review. The only things I could complain about are, I wish there was more and Henry's name. I kept reading it as Harry and when the sentence or paragraph didn't make sense for Harry I would go back and see I had misread the name, trivial, I know but a different name would have helped me. I did love your a/n back in chapter 2 (?), especially considering that I've left reviews for people where I went out of my way to compliment the story and then pointed out some mistake or other and was promptly attacked for it. Telling me they only write for their pleasure and if I don't like it to not read it is a pretty bad excuse when they are putting their 'only for their pleasure' story up on the largest fanfic archive out there and begging for reviews. So your attitude is really welcome and I'm sure it will help you no matter what you do in life. Thanks again for a fun, readable story.

So how /did/ the public react to Dumbledore kidnapping and endangering a muggle? It's things like this that make it so I would REALLY love for you to create an alternate version of this story that greatly expanded these scenes. If you don't want the hassle of people bugging you for updates you could do it slowly, on your own time, and upload the whole thing at once without telling anyone, besides me of course ;), about it beforehand to avoid said harassment about finishing the story quicker. This story absolutely /screams/ with the need to be fleshed out. It's damn good now, imagine how great it would be then! A pipe dream I'm sure, but a man can dream.

You know it just occurred to me to question how Bellatrix avoided capture after torturing Neville's parents. Also, you seem to be giving the Prime Minister a whole HELL of a lot more power over wizards than in canon, in which he had none whatsoever. I love how you seem to be starting a non violent, except for Natasja, revolution in wizarding Britain.

Wow, the Grangers are pretty rude with 'the help' aren't they? There are nicer ways of going about telling someone you don't like Valentines day decorations.

While having Dumbledore and Snape both get their asses kicked by a non-magical woman is hilarious it is hardly realistic. Besides having magic, and in Dumbledore's second encounter knowledge that Natasja is physically capable of fighting back, both of them are surviving combatants of war and would have the reflexes that come with that.

Wait I am confused. First you make it seem that Natasja, /weird/ name by the way, missed the letter and then latter you say she and the cops are upset at the 'prank' letter. Then you make out that the Potter heraldic symbol is known to the muggles and yet the only Potters they can find obviously aren't related to /the/ Potter Family. Third and finally, if they have the letter then even if they assume it is a prank they would still canvas the area Harry was found and look for anyone named 'Petunia' to try and get some answers. Granted Petunia would lie her ass off to avoid having anything to do to with Harry but they would still find her.
| Racke chapter 16 . 2/1
I kind of really love how Henry and Natasja became a couple, and the way that they found themselves stumbling across muggleborns everywhere was also quite entertaining (if perhaps a little bit cliched for me by the time that I'm reading this) and the couples that formed among our heroes was a wonderful breath of fresh air from what seems to have become the unfortunate norm.
The fact that everyone managed to be furious with Dumbledore without coming off as impolite hypocrites? That was relieving enough to nearly bring me to tears. Goodness knows we've got too few of these kinds of stories that are written this well.
