It's great to have another update, please do so soon. I wonder what'll happen to Ron, is Cedric replacing him? And what about Neville? I hope we see more of Autumn soon, I still think that James/Autumn pairing will be good.

Hey, I love your story so much and everyday I'm looking to see if it's been updated. I love Harriet and Draco together, and I like how you haven't turned Draco into a complete wuss as most other stories do - he still has a lot of Slytherin in him.
You said you'd update within the week when you last updated, but it's now more than a month later - dude, what happened?

To be honest, I'm rather conflicted on this story. I much prefer a much smarter, independent Harry, so stories that use canon Harry like this one tend to piss me off. Well, I have several issues with canon Harry, but really the one that mattered most in this story was this.
Turning Harry into a girl seems to have made her into more of an idiot than her male counterpart. I still remember all the times she defended her father when he did nothing to deserve it. Not to mention, nothing comes of all his mistakes. He didn't believe her when she said she didn't enter the tournament, nor did he believe her when he said Voldemort returned. Not only that, but events of the first few books, with the stone and the chamber, also resulted in the same outcome; her father not believing her and blaming her. And yet, there was no real punishment for that. He just said sorry and now magically they're alright. Even after Harry finally, FINALLY, said she hated the man in the ministry, suddenly they're all okay in a few chapters. Realistically, even if he was her father, after all the events of the past years, his opinion should not matter to her as much as you make it in this story.
I remember you saying that James Potter was not completely a bad man, and I agree. He isn't a black, or a white; he's a gray. He is a crappy father, but he does have good qualities too. But that doesn't mean that Harry should have just forgiven him easily, or at all, that is one major factor that really requires me to suspend my disbelief.
Not to mention, you seem to be going down the route where Draco goes horcrux hunting with her father and later wins his respect and convinces him to allow their marriage. It's so... cliche that it makes me sick.
So basically, the main problem I have with this story is that the relationship between Harry and her father should not be as good as it is. I'm sorry, but realistically, after all the shit he's done to her, she really shouldn't love him as much as she does. It requires a large suspension of disbelief. I'm sure I had other, personal problems with this story but this issue was the most important one and if I'm honest: it's really the only real problem with this story.
You are, without a doubt, an amazing writer. I have very, very high standards, and I stuck with this fic to the end. I remember you had a bit of a problem with formatting dialogue in the beginning, but it was all minor and ceased to exist a long while back. As you are no doubt tired of reading: the only problem in this story is the implausible relationship between Harry and James. Not even daughters can forgive that much.
TLDR: Your story is amazing and you're a great writer, but not even canon Harry would forgive the James of this story for all the shit he's pulled.
PS. Looking forward to the next update.

Make Harry a girl and you don't have to declare the story as slash. Fem Harry? An excuse for slash.
| guest chapter 33 . 2/1
ok i'm not that happy that the whole order knows about the horocruxes :/
But Harriet HAS TO GO ON THE HOROCRUX HUNT. the prophecy is about her and dumbledore assigned her with that task. Don't take that away from her. It is such an important part of the story.
And honestly Harriet is 17 now (or will be soon) and James can't tell her what to do.

...why is pettigrew ordering the Aurors around when Serious is the head of the Auror department and there as well? Seriously, I like the story but the ministers advisor wouldn't have that much power.
| Fullmetal11791 chapter 6 . 1/31
Honestly think you were far too kind to your James Potter in this chapter. On the one hand, yes, he needed to have his "oh shit I've been a total prick" moment. On the other hand, after having him be a complete douche bag for six chapters, you should have let Harry get some shots in before the whole "forgiveness scene".

This definitely needs an angst tag haha. Seriously, this is clearly well written and in only up to chapter four. I usually avoid stories labeled angst because most people associate the word with depressing. However, you really have the whole "make your readers feel anxiety" thing down well. And while I really do dislike stories like this, as I find that a lot of them don't offer enough relief from the anxiety at intervals throughout, the ones that DO have that timing down end up being some of the best stories on the site. So, definitely gonna continue, cuz this seems really interesting, but definitely hoping that you haven't made Harry too helpless here, cuz that's gonna destroy my fingernails.

Haven't read many "Harry is a girl stories", but this seems well written so far and definitely has an interesting premise.
The one thing I don't understand, with this story and many others, is why do people have Draco call Harry "Pothead". He calls him "Scarhead" in the books, because he has a scar on his head. However, recreational drugs are never mentioned in the books, and even if they are assumed to be part of the universe in whatever fanfiction is using the term "Pothead", Draco Malfoy wouldn't even know what weed was.
And given that Draco wouldn't know that pot was a slang term for marijuana, I can only assume that you are having Draco insult Harry by telling him (or her) that his head looks like, well, a pot. Which isn't really that insulting, as far as insults go from someone who constantly uses the equivalent of a racial slur (mudblood).
