The US government in all their wisdom has come up with a law called Stop Online Piracy Acts (SOPA). It’s basically a blanket law to stop ALL forms of online piracy including fan fiction, fan art, and fan videos! So they punish those that they want to punish. BUT they also punish all of us who express our creativity through writing, drawing, and recording around something that may not belong to us, but that we LOVE. There is a Petition on WE the People that ends on the 19th of March that needs 100,000 signatures. So far we have 53,002.

I just noticed that you named the Station in Antarctica Zebra. Was that influenced by the book Ice Station Zebra by Alistair MacLean at all?
| Schnuff chapter 4 . 2/27
Great Cahpter, rite more!
| Fire Wolfe chapter 7 . 2/24
Great chapter. Is sirius 36 or 38 you have his age listed differently in two chapters. Sorry for the nit pic. Just thought I would point it out. Though it may be intentional as the prophet are idiots.
| BlackRevenant chapter 1 . 2/25
I was actually looking forward to a Squib!Harry.
| Indecisive Bob chapter 9 . 2/13
This was a really great story! It was a different kind of Harry Potter story, but it was nice. Not a lot of stories on this site have a plot mainly focused on character development. It's not my favorite kind of story, but it's a nice change from reading the same kind of over-powered-boy-who-lived type stories. Excellent job!
| Vegasman59 chapter 9 . 2/10
It needs an epilogue at least
| iChaos chapter 9 . 2/10
That was one heckuva delightfully wicked tale. It made me laugh, out loud, more than once. At times, it was endearing. It was insightful, and above all it was surprisingly satisfying.
To being with, the concept that Sirius and Remus would take active and decisive steps to insure the best interests of one HJP is perhaps the most sensible and natural places for an AU narrative to divert from cannon. Of all the HP fics out there, few of them bother to really take advantage of the fact that Sirius is one of the few characters the truly has the potential to instigate change and both the resources and motivation to make those changes happen. Clearly, this is good news for Harry.
Although it does not become completely obvious until late in the story, not only is Hermione a natural and compatible match for our intrepid hero, she is also establishes s crucial link between who he was when he arrived at Hogwarts and the person he will grow to become. Considering the metamorph ability, that stabilizing influence goes a long way towards keeping him grounded. Honestly though, I have a difficult time assigning that particular attribute to the character. Harry already has more than enough qualities to set him apart from his peers, and although I can see why it was useful for this particular plot, in the long run I think he could have accomplished the same things without the morphing.
Other favorite story elements include the psychotic Snape and cross-dressing Dobby. I swear, the mental image of the elf in a playboy bunny outfit was enough the spew coffee the the monitor and curse your deranged sense of humor while simultaneously harboring literary envy at your unconventional yet highly effective imagery. The newspaper articles also added a welcome dash of panache that sets this fit apart from the masses. As much as the media may have unwittingly contributed to the overall plan, I am convinced the power of the press itself was only one part of the significant role that the written word had to play in this fic. Indeed, the correspondence between H&H was an even more compelling example of the pen being mightier than the sword. In this case, it was absolutely critical to further build upon the foundation of their relationship.
While your selected method of occupying Voldemort while Harry prepared to meet the dark-wanker on his own terms was definitely creative, I am still a bit confused by the whole double horcrux concept. In the end though, it amounted to the same thing, and that is of the good. I very much enjoyed this story, so now I am going to stalk you... er, I mean explore your other fics!
| BeautifulCherryBlossom chapter 9 . 2/8
I have now read the whole thing in a day, and I am sad to say (but this is a compliment to you) that none of the other HHr stories are good enough to read right now. I really want to follow them some more on their journey towards a new family etc,.
| Noble Korhedron chapter 9 . 2/4
The story was great but it sucks that we don't get to see what happens next. :-(
| Noble Korhedron chapter 1 . 2/3
Thanks! And even better, you posted a version that FFn can't remove without changing their own rules! *EVIL GRIN*
| HarryPotter'sCharmedTwilight chapter 9 . 2/1
Like your other stories, this is like nothing I've read before...
I loved it!
| MooNOrchiD chapter 9 . 1/28
Alyx seems like someone I should aspire to become! Your use of elf dialogue ties me in a tizzy and it's now extremely difficult for me to not picture all house elfs in playboy bunny outfits! Makes life worth it.
Every mention of Minister spokesperson Perky Weatherbee makes this story all the more compelling.
Now, on to the plot! Freaking amazing! Make me your house elf so I can witness the making of this first hand, preferably in a dark corner with a red bow tie and loafers on! Yeah, that might be all I'd wearing...
| EverydayMagic17 chapter 7 . 1/8
...Can't stop laughing...love the authors' notes
| kiera-sama chapter 2 . 1/6
I found this story when I was reading Notebooks and Letters. It's only been two chapters and I am enjoying this story immensely. It makes me laugh.
