When Luna says you have weird friends, it means something!

Amusing to see FredOrGeorge and GeorgeOrFred both referred to as Fred in the prose

I KNEW IT, I KNEW THAT SLIMY LOCKHART DID SOMETHING TO HER. When Sakura was smoothing out her clothes I thought that’s a weird detail to mention especially with the lack of an explanation given, and then her memory loss! Well played good sir well played.

Honestly what a plot twist. Thank f though, I really liked Wayde and Gloria and I cried a little bit when the Mirrow was smashed...
I hope Xiao Lang gets better...

Yooooo it kinda seems like Anthony has a thing for Sakura and he needs to Back Off, my daughter is in a loving and supporting relationship already and doesn’t need your negativity in her life.
Ps also loving how it always seems like wizards have made a charm but due to their weak magic and inability to see mana flows they always make inefficient or, ask Sakura puts it, ‘wrong’ spells.

I love your interpretation of this chapter, HP missing and all of the students noticing and even before that, with Hermione walking around the train looking for them. Admitantly ive never put much thought into what happened with the remaineder of the Hogwarts student body that day when Harry and Aron were driving to school, but after reading this I suddenly can imagine it clearly. I especially love how Fred and George pull a prank and suddenly the atmosphere of the great hall has changed and the school year doesn’t start on a negative, worried tone but rather and amused and joyous one!

Just a small nitpick, (and yes, i am aware clamp committed a far greater timeline error in their squeal) but CCS takes place in ~1996-1998, but your fics take place in 1991-1993.

It's kind of disappointing that this is the end (unless you add another story, later), but it was fun while it lasted. Good story, Shareon.

"There isn't any such thing as good magic, evil magic, light magic, dark magic, or any other labels your teachers at Hogwarts might try to put on things."
Seriously? So, murdering someone so that you can tear your soul apart isn't evil? The Cruciatus isn't evil? The Entrail-Expelling Curse? Evil magic exists.

A fairly satisfying conclusion over all. I think your Luna improved over the duration of the story. It would have been interesting to see Sakura do something more with Snapes's offer or maybe the insight she gained from her Charms while she forgot the Cards, but it stands on its own as is.
I could certainly see more of this even with Sakura's decision- I could see Sakura having trouble with Muggle school given her missed years, for instance. That could well provide incentive to continue down the Hogwarts path (or possibly another school of magic that isn't quite so dangerous like, say, Beaubaton's in 4th year. Only to end up in the party that is drafted for Hogwarts, of course. :)). The rumors of prophecy that start traveling around in 5th year might also give her hopes of influencing things for the better given Kaho's words about the whirlwind approaching as another option.

I was kind of assuming that Snape was eyeing Sakura for that reason- given what we find in HBP about his own Potions classes when he was a student this definitely fits and I'll be interested in where it goes from here. Luna on the other hand hasn't quite been matching up to what I imagine for her- there's something a little off about her behavior I think. Not quite sure how to put it into words though- possibly a little forced. It might just be her causing trouble rather than others causing it for her though.

Just so you know, this is the first fic where I ever really dislike Professor Flitwick on 3/4 part of the story, and 1/4 part near the end makes me realise he's just a normal human- err, dawrf, wait- elf... uhh, a normal goblin (don't tell me this is wrong too?!) who can feel frustration with something that unusual rather than tradition or normal thing that happens around.
But I Really Really LOVE how you made Professor Snape is a Good Professor in Sakura and Syaoran's eyes without make him OOC. God, I Love it !
And I did wanted to kill Lockhart when he erased Sakura's memories of the Card and Clow magic. Damn!
Anyway, I really Love and enjoy this fic and the prequel one.

OK, I have to say that I really enjoyed this story and it's first part though I'll have to admit that I found the pacing to be off but that's probably because I usually don't read 'slice-of-life'-ish stories.
I think the characters have all been handled carefully enough when it comes to the CCS & HP characters and I liked the original characters well enough though I did have trouble remembering their appearance but, again, that's common for me.
I think the amnesia POV was handled really well as well as the basilisk attack even if it was quite the mood whiplash and quite the shock.
I also really like the magical theory you presented, vague but solid enough to sound legit.
However, I do have to point out a few points that stood out to me, besides the occasional spelling errors which were more noticeable this time though not enough to be too distracting.
1.) The cleaning of the board.
I may not be too good with remembering characters but for Anthony it was a bit too obvious with the repeated references to him that he'd pretty much had vanished from the story without a send-off or anything.
With Gloria it's more understandable since her personality stood out the most, probably too much to have been ignored in the books, but her getting transferred just seems a tad much to me though as I've said that it is understandable with the danger throughout the year.
Perhaps it's best too say that it was maybe a little too sudden without much explaining though overprotective/-reacting parents is a thing.
And as I've said before I'm not too good with remembering characters but I'd all but forgotten Deborah until she got her last minute mention.
Again, I can't fully remember her from the first story but a bit more mention would have been nice.
2.) How did Lockhart know?
As good as I found the amnesia section I think an opportunity was wasted here with Lockhart not trying anything with the cards.
Also, I might have overlooked any hints to it but Lockhart attacking Sakura was kind of out of nowhere and unprovoked unless it was all about the avoided basilisk attack and his denied glory.
And if it wasn't because of that but specifically the cards then I still have no idea how he could have learned about them in the first place.
Even with the mentioned above I still really enjoyed this little series.
It got me anxious as I neared the end as I often do with stories I really like and I thought the final round through Hogwards was just beautiful.
If it ends here I'm fine with that but if it does continue I'll look forward to it in anticipation.

It was pointless because no changes, but still fun.
