| Gandalf's Beard chapter 6 . 8/15/2014
Really well done...
| Specky Clarke chapter 6 . 10/31/2013
Good start to the story. Please keep writing.
| Luvliacd chapter 6 . 8/24/2013
I sincerely hope that something was actually done to Malfoy and his goons when his head of house found out what he did. He'd better have lost his house the cup and more. It's always been a downfall of the books that the apparently 'good' Snape never disciplined his house students...I think his goodness was very limited. I'm liking your story without Ron in it, although I have to ask, is Ron even in existence? I'm glad you kept the twins though, they were good friends to Harry. Loving the friendship between Harry, Neville, and Hermione.
| Man of Constant Sorrow chapter 6 . 8/23/2013
Another excellent chapter.
You know its only hallucinating, if what your looking at doesn't exist. Perhaps Harry is an heir to one of the founders and as such his bloodline is privileged to seeing some hidden parts of Hogwarts that others cannot see. Perhaps the other founders had their own special places not unlike the CoS.
Glad to see Malfoy finally getting caught in the act of being a douche.
As always thanks for sharing, I eagerly await your next.
| Lupinesence chapter 6 . 8/17/2013
Cool fic so far :)
| Ragav chapter 6 . 8/16/2013
Thanks for the update. The plot with its modifications from canon is interesting and makes me look forward to reading more.
| Penny is wise chapter 6 . 8/16/2013
Awesome story so far. Did Dumbles just ignore the fact that Harry said he got a beating from his relatives?

| cellester chapter 3 . 5/22/2013
love your story but you have a typo."Several quickly got up and fetched potions, and soon the air was filled with the smell of ingredients". shouldn't be fetched ingredients and filled with the smell of potions? hope you update often.
| Red Phoenix Dragon chapter 5 . 5/21/2013
A good measured chapter for Halloween, remembering parents and why it is not fun plus a troll to boot. Snape's lessons for DADA failed to teach them how to deal with a troll. Maybe they should ask for their money back?
Good for Harry to get the map so early. Maybe he should monitor who Dumbledore sees?
Great for the soft kiss. Now what is Harry going to do?
Thanks for sharing your story. Please update soon.
| geetac chapter 5 . 5/21/2013
I like the chapters.
| DivineDeity chapter 5 . 5/21/2013
Not bad, not bad. Good writing, though not perfect as there are a few mistakes here and there. They aren't story breaking however.
I'm not sure if you simply hate Ron, don't like him, or just plain don't care about him, but I do applaud your way of dealing with it. Most people tend to bash the characters they do not like. Turn them into something they're not. It is a terrible plot device, and a terrible method of dealing with it. However, I'm not sure if not mentioning him at all is the right way to go about it. I'll reserve judgement though, since the story is not complete and it is possible you're simply waiting to bring him up. His family is an important part of the series, so completely erasing him might not be such a good idea.
Personally I really do not like bashing, of any kind. There are far better ways to deal with a character you do not like, which are far more forgiving to your story. Bashing characters left and right turns the story into a hate-fiction and those are just a waste of good writing talent.
The only other thing I can see is that the story seems just a tad bit too fast paced, though that isn't terribly important. At least in my opinion. I would prefer a story that is a little too fast paced to one that slogs through the mud. I'm not really a fan of stories that take 30 chapters to get through half a year's worth of material. It's hard to get a good balance so it's not your fault anyway.
