| Emjhai chapter 13 . 1/6/2013
Excellent chapter, as usual. It's outrageous, though, that Dumbledore is still willing to use a little girl to do what should be HIS job. As the most powerful wizard of his time, it's his responsibility to combat V. Unless he has some infallible scheme regarding Rose's blood in mind, and he doesn't have a good record of infallibility. What he SHOULD do is go to meet V in Rose's place and blow him (and Peter) away.
Thanks for the new chapter, and Happy New Year to you, too.

Such a great chapter! Lots of emotions and lots on info. Loved it!
| Very Small Prophet chapter 13 . 1/3/2013
It never seems to occur to anyone that Harry (or Rose in this case) could simply forfeit each task in the Tournament as it comes up. Step up to the edge of the dragon pit, put away her wand and say, “I give up.” Step into the lake, step back out and say, “I give up.” Step into the maze, step back out and say, “I give up.”
And Dumbledore’s crocodile tears make me want to throttle him.

WOW ! I am really looking forward to Black's reaction. I hope Draco does not ignore Rose, especially after she is chosen as champion. Somehow, I hope Severus would find a way (with polyjuice?) to ensure that Rose never does the final triwizard task...

Great chapter! There are a lot of holes in JKR's books. In so many cases you'd think Dumbledore and Snape would know stuff and they don't.

Fascinating. When Snape first entered the office, I assumed we were going to just have a short scene where Snape left frustrated at not being able to find Moody and then trust to his dislike of the map not to reveal Crouch that way. Have to agree that it is highly implausible that he would be able to remain undetected for a whole year, even as someone who may be particularly antisocial like Moody. Also, reading Snape's thoughts about Neville reminded me that the prophecy makes specific reference to sex, although not in the part that Snape and therefore Voldemort heard. Assuming the wording remains the same, then Dumbledore would be aware that it applied only to Rose from the start. Not sure that really makes any difference, but it was something that interested me.

Can't wait to see what happens to Crouch. Oooooh, it's becoming more and more interesting.

Okay, first things first; A belated Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoyed your special day :)
I really like what you did with this chapter. I agree that it was strange that in the books no one realised that Moody was acting differently. Supposedly he was good friends with Dumbledore... couldn't have been that great a friendship. And like you said, Crouch had spent such a long time in Azkaban and he had been under his father's Imperius Curse for quite some time. So yeah...
Thanks for this wonderful new chapter!
| Poetheather1 chapter 12 . 12/17/2012
Very nice. Very very nice. Yeah, Snape would totally out duel Barty. And Snape would totally catch him, and you have set it up so well. And having Sirius watching the questioning... clever. This is going to get interesting. It makes me wonder if they are going to Imperius Barty to make him still do what he is "supposed" to do. Or have the real Alastor pretend to be the fake Alastor and still put Rose's name in the Goblet. This will get insane from here. But if they use the real Alastor as a teacher then the kids will learn a hell of a lot. This is getting quite good.

Great chapter! Logical plot progression, excellent character dialogue. Well done! I really like that Snape figures it out, calls Dumbledore and then worried, gets a witness. Worth the wait!

happy birthday love the chapter, cant wait for more..
| cheekysorcerer chapter 11 . 12/16/2012
Loved the new chapter!
It's really late at night, so I can't really think of something to write. Just know that I had once again fun reading your work!
| Christopher Kidwell chapter 11 . 12/5/2012
An awesome story and a great render of a female Harry in the story. Snape's emotional growth is exceptional as well.
| Saint Snape chapter 11 . 12/3/2012
Good, Severus is suspicious of Moody. Pansy is such an ass too. The dueling club should be interesting.
| Poetheather1 chapter 11 . 12/3/2012
Another excellent chapter. Man Snape keeps getting deeper and deeper into it. Pansy probably wet herself in fear over that whole mess, because it was rather intense and quite lovely. It completely set up that Snape was still completely in charge even while sick. Very cool. And the slow realizations about Moody... I approve. That does make things work well. You are changing things some but not massively. That is working well. I must admit, now you have me desperately wanting to see what you have for him to say to Neville.
