I just noticed. Frogspawn is spelt with aw, not or. When Selwyn makes the comment about rigel'a assignment, you spelt it as frogsporn. But I absolutely adore this series, I've read it at least three times, and I keep writing spin offs or au'a of this 'verse.

I loved Archie's point of view. Your spin on the troll incident was great. Hilarious

Holy shitake mushrooms on an oversized black frying pan. I LOVE what you did with this story. Great job. The epilogue is oh so very ominous and I am EXCITED to see what unfolds in the continuation. Thank you very much for taking the timw to write and complete this story, it is very well done

Your imagination completely blows my mind. I havent read the series this is based on, but the wiki page leads me to believe that you came up with all of this. It's rare to see a fanfic with so much original content, rather than just spinning off of the 'philosopher's stone' story line in the first book etc (although those stories are plenty satisfying, too).
you have a gift to create such vibrant atmospheres in your stories - each mindscape Rigel enters is unique and perfectly suited to the characters. Totally blown away by this story, and I cannot wait to catch up with the other two straight away!

Okay, wow. Usually I'd wait to comment on a fic until I've finished reading it completely, but I wanted to stop by and let you know just how awesome this is. I was dubious of the whole gender swapped / au / identity swapped thing you've got going on, but it is such a breath of fresh air. Seeing this new character thrust into Harry's cast of characters is fascinating! So excited to see if you do anything with Hermione - I was worried she'd be left out in the cold in this AU, but it looks like my worries were unfounded.
And I love Ridel, she's charming and a fun mix of deadpan and mischief.
Okay, is that enough gushing? Anyways, so excited to finish this and get onto the next! :)

Oh god. Oh god. How have I never found this before? You just crossed two of my favorite series and I just can't take it! Sniff...this is so beautiful!

I don't understand why this story isn't up there with nightmares of future past, Harry crow, etc. it deserves way more reviews and hits, if only for the sake of perfect grammar. Plot line was interesting indeed, lots of little small incidents and a big plot mover. I look forward to reading the other works in the series. Keep up the good work :)
| Alexis chapter 22 . 7/7
It's 1:36 am, and I cannot believe I finally finished the whole thing... Or that there's a completed sequel and a third in progress...
Wow! I've seen a lot of theories on Occlumency (spelling?) and mind landscapes, but I love the way you describe each students' individual core and mind, and how different they all are. I laughed at the part about the Ravenclaw who sat on his cloud and tossed thunderbolts down.
Um... There's more that I was going to say, but unfortunately I've been awake for about... Eighteen hours? And without caffeine, my brain has a nasty habit of turning off at around the seventeen hour mark.
So anyway, amazing story! I'll definitely be reading the second installment... Later today. Like, noon later today. I should probably stop typing for fear of sounding like I've been hit with a jelly-brains curse.

I started reading this fic awhile ago, but then stopped somewhere in the middle - why, I have no idea. Anyway, I saw the third in the series while I was scrolling through the 'recently updated' HP fics, and decided to return to the beginning and start over. Personally, I love how different from canon this is. Most of my favorite fanfictions, as a matter of fact, are completely AU. I especially love how you write Pansy and Draco, and Rigel - even though she's very OOC from the original Harry Potter - is very likable, perhaps even moreso because she is not a straight up OC. I've found that original characters can be very easy to hate, even the good ones.
Anyway, I'm eager to return to reading, so that about wraps it up for now. You can probably expect another review at the end of the story, at the latest :).

This was amazing! I have so many questioned, I loved how the first year was about more than the stone and the writing in general is great. How Harriet will be able to claim to be a potions master when technically the apprenticeship is under Rigel's name confuses me but I'm sure there will be an explanation when the time comes. Keep writing.
