I love the way this ended. I was genuinely surprised when person A grabbed hold of person B in Chapter 24, and spirited them away to location C, and let out a huge cheer. This changes everything, and I'm really delighted. I've liked your version of person A since Year 2.
Generally, I really enjoyed this book, and I like the way you are treating the whole "muggle" issue. My only criticism of this book is that you do seem to have spent a lot of time on the topic of which teenager is dating which teenager; I found most of this rather dull. That said, I'm delighted that Millie got such a wonderful date for the Yule Ball.
Please hurry up and write/publish more!

This ones a little boring...not enough mystery and plot, to much 14 year old drama and romance..if the characters where more interesting it would have been okay...I did a lot if skimming and dropped it eventually

Just read all of these in 3 days. Omg, so good!

It was something of an unpleasant shock when, after several days of frantic, obsessive reading, I discovered that this was the last chapter of this part.
It was even more of a shock when I discovered that the next Year wasn't up yet.
It was absolutely cruel to see on your profile that you won't put up any more until you finish it, and that it was 'almost done' last September, but isn't done yet. I fully intend to sit and glare at my computer until the next part appears, or my brain oozes out my ears, whichever comes first.

/sigh If they are being taken as children and raised alongside the purebloods, then they would know exactly the same things, unless their education was being sabotaged. Straw arguments benefit nobody.

I enjoyed reading your stories. I was pleasantly surprised when I (like eneath) saw that, unlike many of the slytherin!harry stories, yours actually depicted how being sorted into Slytherin could potentially affect Harry's judgment and decisions, thus changing some of the situations he gets into (without straying too far from canon). I also like that you showed us what Harry's and Padfoot's relationship would have been like had the latter been declared innocent by the MoM. :)
I'm really looking forward to the next story! I hope you update soon! :)

This story is absolutely amazing up to part 4! It is the most realistic Slytherin!Harry I've ever read and I've read quite a few. I really like the changes you've made, some people only change the House Harry is in and not much else, but I can really see it happening like you have described. Of course it still follows the main story events from canon, but the changes to the details really make this work. When you had Wormtail kissed, I really didn't know how you were going to pull Voldie's resurrection off, and his soul in Wormtail's body is bloody brilliant! I can't wait for part 5, hope to see it posted soon!

I just finished reading all 4 stories, and I really enjoyed them! They were really well written and I'm looking forward to the fifth one.

I love all of the characters, especially since Rowling never showed us many outside of Gryffindor and practically none from Slytherin. Theo's especially interesting, as are Crabbe and Goyle (I like the way they aren't complete idiots).

Great story that catches up with the politics ... and physical reality of Harry's situation. I liked how you managed to 'delay' many of the signs of voldemort's return and make it more of a surprise. The Malfoy maneuver was also well done.
I'm looking forward to the next book and hope you'll be posting soon.
Thanks for your obvious hard work on this story.

VERY GOOD! I love this series, I must say, with everything in me. It has taken me a little over 2 weeks to read this entire series from book 1 to now, it has consumed me since I stumbled across it. I hope to see book 5 coming soon, because I am very much looking forward to it!

Amazing Story! I just started this series a couple of days ago, after being curious about it for a while. I'm glad I finally found the time to read it, but now I have to wait until Year 5 is posted, darn it!
Lots of things to like in this story, although I will admit that Harry's bullying in younger years was kind of hard to take, and the death in year two was a real surprise!
Thanks for writing

Love the series, *really* loved the Wraith Squadron quote
| DamonandElena4ever chapter 25 . 10/22/2012
wow ...i adore this story ...really :)
and i didn't know this was possible but part 4 was even better than the others before! i just hope crabbe, goyle and theo will stay friends with harry and not abandon him somehow ...but i'm happy about lucius being on his side ...i thought for a brief moment he really changed the side ...
but what i don't understand is ...who put harry's name into the goblet? if moody wasn't the one ...maybe i just didn't realize it in the story but i couldn't find a clue about that ...i'm just curious about it :)
and the relationship between sirius and harry is awesome :) it's just the one thing missing in the original books ...they could've had so much more time together it's just sad ...anyway i love the idea of harry becoming an animagus :D
and i can't wait for you to post part 5 of the story ...btw :D congrats to your marriage! :)
aaand really looking forward to part 5 ...i'm so addicted to this story :D
