| Kai chapter 27 . 2/11
Perhaps one or two (dozen) reviewers already mentioned that Bellatrix and Andromeda are sisters, but that allows much easier for close resemblance now, doesn't it?

To comment on your A/N:
It's entirely impossible that families like the Blacks, Malfoys, Crouches, Yaxleys, Lestranges, ... (you know who I mean), accept contact to creatures they consider lower than filthy vermin, and a lot of them, several times a year without complaining. I mean, it's the creatures they rape and torture to death for a bit of fun. And by complaining I mean throwing a certain golden argument on the idea of installing floos directly on the platform to definitely make it happen.
And there's no conspiracy theory necessary as the Weasleys' behaviour is erratic enough to dispel any notion of bad intent. Come on, they're poor but squander the money to take three taxis from Devon to London, AND they would have to leave at about four in the morning or so to get there even barely on time. Btw, the Leaky Cauldron HAS floo access, and taxis from there to the station are A LOT cheaper. They're just barmy, all of them.

Loving how you list out every minute detail that happens as well. You know, the one thing they tell every aspiring writer not to do.

I like how literally no one in your story conjugates their words. They all must talk incredibly slow.

Cool, that's a fitting end to the story. Harry and Hermione leading the magical Britons into a new era.
| cztelnik chapter 53 . 2/4
Definitely the most innovative demise for Voldemort and Bellatrix. It seems like the rest of Voldie's Death Eaters will spend their life in prison? I hope Luna isn't plagued as much by awful visions of what might happen.

This was one of the most inspired and creative 2nd task I've read in HP fics. The tasks felt more in line with Harry's age and makes sense that they revised after learning Harry would be a Champion.

An inventive and much more dramatic Cup scene. Fudge and Malfoy have a finale that will bring things to a head sooner than later.
| cztelnik chapter 42 . 2/4
I am confused, must have missed how the Potter faction is protecting the Dark Mark bearers that swore to uphold the law. Glad they are because it is necessary. When Voldemort returns he can kill them painfully and directly, they can't avoid coming when he calls and they won't survive long - either their magic will kill them or he will for disobeying. They must have a means to remove the Dark Mark.

This is really cool sounding sciency speculation on the details behind the werewolf phenomena!
| cztelnik chapter 35 . 2/4
The key issue from what I understand of the Harmionic faction's progress so far is they've not provided any safety net for those who are promising under the greater present threat while thinking Voldemort is gone. Those people may actually want to honor their promises but when Voldemort returns, they will lose their magic and their families will be first on the line to die distrusted by both sides. The repercussions of such a percentage of loss and financial disruption to the magical world will be tremendous.
Also, not sure how easy it is to be a "model citizen" and support either side. For example, in "Mundania" N. Korea likely has the most peaceful and model citizenry anywhere in the current RL world. They hardly ever rebel and follow laws religiously. Voldemort would likely institute a similar, very peaceful regime at the end. Alternatively, the current Head of DMLE is betraying her own oaths and going vigilante to fight against a movement that was succeeding on both fronts, violent and lawful and it is more about differing points of view of what is "right". It compares to the rebellions of the Colonies against King George - they said they want to be allowed to live in peace. What they really meant was they wanted to be allowed to Be in Charge and not be subservient to the king's laws and Do as They Wanted. Native Americans didn't get to partake in the peaceful living, and it is possible wholesale slaughter and even slavery would have not proceeded as it did under rule and settled authority from England. Not being allowed to land grab was a large part of the dispute.
Just ...it is never so simple as just "knowing that your side is in the right". Draco knows that too and the only difference is who's in power at the moment instead of one side being inherently better.

Nathan can't tell but he can teach and pass on his hate to his family and those affected will find ways to come together in their "hurting" but as a short term solution it is really very interesting and turning balance of power.
Umm, I can't see Severus Snape ever allowing the plebeian utterance "no way!" to pass through his lips tho...just imagining the furious horror at the thought. :b

The one concern with open development and sales of the protective gear and weaponry to the Aurors is that Voldemort will get his hands on it too. It could be reduced a bit by a purge of any in the public office or hired by such with a Dark Mark but then Snape would be a casualty as well.
If Harry could find a way to remove the Dark Mark they could use it on Snape and let it out as a temptation to anyone wanting truly to repent and change but there will always be a majority of people willing to collude and abet those who are powerful. So it will be a more heavily armed standoff or escalation of violence to overcome the protections. Just look at any countries politicians, who the people vote into office are either pretty, dominant or both. Rarely does anyone with genuine humanitarian goals succeed in rising up to positions of power.

The theory behind all Harmonics is inventing and investigating is really, really cool to read and speculate on. Combining current mundane science to the magical applications and attempting to transmute is a long time dream of people but makes more sense when you look around at all the items transferred from one form to another occurring naturally with catalyst of pressure and other aspects we don't understand yet. Even if the prevalent attitude seems to be we are the enlightened age and know everything. For example T-rex bones have been found with dna extant, invalidating the previously accepted theory of the fossilization process. Haha, they should call current era the Age of 16! ")

Hmm, did that permanently increase Harry's magic core? Guess I'll find out later ").
Hermione and Harry will no doubt continue their mundane education while on Holiday, it isn't likely they'll be content to twiddle around when they have so much invested in the experiments during Term and they'll need the advanced bio-physics and chemistry to continue.
