"Now all you need is a brilliant witch who's sometimes too clever for her own good," James said. "Then you'll have a matched Lily-and-James-alike set."
this did it for me. Comparing the likes of james and Lily to those waste of space of ron and Hermione... just no. Annoying bossy know it all with a stick up her ass and the biggest dunderhead to grace hogwart. In case you forgot, James was a popular guy. Just because he likes jokes doesn't mean he was like ron or the twins. James was more like an intelligent futbol players we see in movies while ron and the twins are more like imbéciles or in the twins case, inmature Little shites. I hate when authors protray him as another weasley twin. He fucking grew up, you should fucking do the same
Lily? Hermione would love to even come close. She even had friends made on her own, instead of out of guilt. GTFO and take this shit with you

I am thoroughly enjoying this. :D

This is unlike any fic I've read before. I'm really enjoying it! Your characterization is great and the way you handled giving harry the powers of the hallows is without fault. It would have been easy to go down the super!harry route with incredible powers and whatnot, but you haven't, which I love this the more for! Thanks and I really hope you update soon :)

Very very good
| princessofthedeadsheep chapter 6 . 6/22/2013
A very interesting premise-and quite original, all things considered. I love the way you portray Lily and James. I'm quite curious as to what is going to happen next, and look forward to future chapters!

I was never fond of the idea of an adult, whether it's Dumbledore or Lily's ghost, asking the child to make allowances for the adult when it comes to Snape's antagonism of Harry. Shouldn't the adult have to be the mature one? I'm glad you have Lily investigate and see the truth for herself.

Thanks for the great read! I'm looking forward to the next instalment.

What an awesome idea for a story. I love an original idea and this is brilliant. I love how you set it up starting with the original universe and how you have got harry using his head and having his parents is a way that is truly believable. When will you update next? I really want to read more. What's going to happen with hermione? So many questions i have. Please continue this story as i have loved reading it so far.

Why ghosts generated by the ring are invisible to wizards other than Harry?

The title name is wonderful.
| Debate4life chapter 6 . 6/7/2013
Love this story! Very entertaining.

Percy became prefect in third year, I believe, so a bit of an error there

Awesome story. Seriously, I'm supposed to be doing this essay at the moment (it's midnight-and the thing's due TOMORROW - well, today, technically, but... ah never mind), but no, you had to suck me in with this freaking awesome story.
Although, I do wish you made Snape a bit more ... redeeming? He did have a harsh life, and though I've read both Snape-bashing stories and Snape-...loving(?) stories, I do tend to like him in a neutral or better light. Will this be a bashing? Cause' ... truly, he's done quite a lot for Harry in the canon, and then... yeah. He's still a stupid bully (greasy git...) but I suppose he does have a good reason when his life's been so shoddy, with only Lily being a bit of a highlight. The rest was, a) (probably) abused home, b) not so great looks or socialism, c) bullied childhood, including the life-or-death incident with a werewolf, d) VOLDEMORT, e) ex-best friend dying because of one mistake (notice how whenever he ever makes a little mistake [mudblood fiasco, eavesdropping incident...] they're always blown up? He's never had a break!) and finally, f) spending rest of his life as a reluctant protector and still in a life-debt with the Potter(s).
Yeah. His life kinda sucked.
...sorry about my rant about Snape.
Anyway, back to YOUR review:
It's been a really great story so far, and the characterizations are pretty spot on. I'm unsure as to whether Draco Malfoy will pop up with a very bad or very, VERY bad light in this (just bracing myself) and I do hope Dumbledore will be popping up soon.
The writing's been awesome as well, along with the rather... unqiue plot. I love your idea, and, sorry, but is Hedwig not ever going to come back? (I miss her...)
Finally, I'm done. Now I have to do my stupid English essay about "Challenges Growth" basically for three books that aren't even all that great.
PS: Does this story have a update schedule?
| Jerrac chapter 6 . 5/11/2013
fun start to the story. Um, how did James and Lily send Harry presents?
| Guest chapter 6 . 5/8/2013
Your style of writing is simple yet elegant. I hope you update such a beautiful, compelling story.
