I've never wanted to rip people to shreds more than I do the damn Dursleys; I dunno whether to praise you for eliciting that kind of response, or be angry that you could make me feel so murderous…
| BrothersBestFriends chapter 1 . 8/22
Aww that was really good story.
| HermioneSnapeLestrange chapter 1 . 8/16
I just read this and got to the end thinking please let this not be a one shot. Darn it it is! I see a lot of potential with this continuing, but even if it doesn't this was great. I loved it! Not your typical HP stories.

I like how you said that if he ate to much he would get sick. I was just thinking about that and that was never addressed in the books. Very good story I enjoyed it very much.
| SortingHat chapter 1 . 7/4
Sorry but that is why it's impossible to right Harry being rescued from the Dursley's and sticking to canon because nothing is being done legal wise to keep Harry protected.
The *Bashing Dumbledore* fics at least uses/utilize the legal system. I've even seen one fic where Rita Skeeter doesn't like the sound of Harry being abused and finds out on her own.
| Melindaleo chapter 1 . 6/26
Even though I love the Weasley brothers rescuing Harry, I love this version of McGonagall coming to his aid and discovering the abuse. I, too, believe it was abuse. Even if they never raised a hand to him - and I don't believe that judging by the little we saw, and more telling, what Harry said - the lack of food and verbal abuse was still abuse. I also happen to agree with you about Snape. While I love a good rescue story, the Snape ones always stretch credibility too far for me. I think Snape would physically protect Harry at all cost, but I don't think he'd care one whit about Harry's emotional well being. Well done!
If I had any criticism at all, it would be my own pet peeve. I don't like fixing his eyes. If you close your eyes and picture Harry, those iconic glasses always come immediately to mind. Whenever I read a story where the glasses are taken away, it doesn't stay with me, and I'm always jolted out of the story when reminded. Just my .02 on it.
| CosmicEssence chapter 1 . 3/7
simple but easy reading. This is could easily have been part of canon well almost...lol
| Special Fangirl chapter 1 . 2/6
It's amazeeeeeee 3
| whitee5 chapter 1 . 1/2
I love this idea. I have read a lot of Snape rescues Harry stories, but you're right that McGonagall seems like a more likely candidate to do so. Please post if someone decides to continue the story!

Please add to this story. I love the idea and would like to see where you would take it from there. How the Professor would help Harry? What the school ends up finding out? Harry changing his friends even. To saving Ginny beforehand. How knows.

I agree that this makes a lot more sense than Snape taking him :3 Nice stoy!
Oh, how I wish I had a potion like tnat ;)

Thanks for sharing.

All these times, I can't help but think, it was as long as Harry 'called Number 4 his home' that he was safe. Early, it was the 'only home he knew' but I sometimes wonder if, considering he told Dobby 'Hogwarts is my home', maybe the safety was only in not knowing the location and the other protections. If the Blood Protection was gone, Harry would have been safer at the Burrow all those summers... hmmmmm. No, I need to finish my DC and RotG fics as well as my Persona 4 fic, but that is something to entertain. Anyway, night. 10/10

in the end Harry managed to get to Hogwarts...
hopefully Minerva will do something about his home situation in the future :)

I'm sure you've been told before that this is a great setup for a sprawling AU. I'm curious to see how things would play out now that McG knows about Dobby. I hope your muse tells you more of this story someday so that you can share it with us.
