And, at last I've reached the end of your enchanting tale! Well done! I still wonder if DD slipped Harry the Invisibility Cloak at Christmas - he should have it, it's his family heirloom. I also wonder why DD is letting his control slip. I suspect the sequel will have to contain some pushback from him.
You seem to be turning Hogwarts into less of a British Boarding School, but I'll have to wait to see how that plays out. I'm going to hit an author alert as soon as I finish typing.
Thank you for sharing your vision with us - you are the best I've yet seen at capturing McGonagall's voice.

"Bested by a girl?" What the heck is that supposed to mean? Seems to me, a wand levels the playing the field greatly, so I never saw as much prejudice amongst the sexes as blood status. Snape deserved a belt in the nose, too and I'm surprised Minerva let that slide.

I stumbled upon this story very recently - within the last 48 hours in fact. It's wonderfully well-done, with thoughtful, adult portrayals of adults. Thank you for the hours of enjoyment it's given me. I look forward to the possibility of a sequel with great delight and anticipation.

Dude, great ending!
I've followed this story for a while and it's been a fun ride!
Can't wait for the sequel.

Sigh. I knew the Snape-less chapters wouldn't last forever, but I enjoyed the reprieve. I'm most curious about what DD is up to? He's been silent for too long, and he's a powerful, influential wizard. I can't believe he's just going to let the Heads change Hogwarts completely without any input - or manipulation - from him. He's manipulative, yes, but I never doubted his love for Hogwarts.
I had a question after last chapter. I'm assuming that Hagrid still brought Harry his letter. But this Harry, so frightened - I can't imagine Hagrid wouldn't have terrified him. He was down visiting, so obviously they've become friends. I love Hagrid, and I always thought he was the one canon adult who always did everything he could to watch out for Harry, but I wonder what this far more fragile-Harry thought when he showed up?

Remus has been a bright spot of sunshine in this story, and I've thoroughly enjoyed his inclusion. Last chapter's "Mischief Managed" had me pumping my fist in the air, and this chapter's softer, gentle tone with Harry was lovely. I find myself wanting to reach into the screen and hug the boy, and I wish someone would - I wish Remus would. Poor little Harry really needs a hug.
The story doesn't have a lot to go, and I don't know what your version of Sirius will be like, but I always saw him as reckless and impulsive, but sharp as a tack. I hope he finds some place in Harry's life. I think they both need each other.
The DNA didn't intrigue me as much. Wizards don't have the same methods, but they have thier own way of doing things, and I sort of like that they're separate. Well done yet again. This is such an enjoyable story.

This was my favorite chapter yet! The twins get to learn who the Marauders were! Remember a few chapters back when I was lamenting that never happened? That was awesome! Love the awe they gave to Remus. Loved Remus' pride in what he'd accomplished. That map is badass, and I like seeing him proud of part of his life for a change. Love the Snape-repelling charm! I hope the twins take that suggestion and run with it. Loved them hoping McGonagall will tell thier mum they helped in catching a Death Eater.
However, best of all - Minerva playing cat and mouse with that rat! Love it! This was so much fun! I do hope Harry is all right hearing all that blurted out so quickly. I've been listening to PoA in my car, and just tonight I heard the scene where he's facing Sirius in the Shack, and the pain in his voice is so palpable. It hurts my heart. I hope the Harry in your story is all right.

Absolutely LOVE that Flitwick is more concerned about leaving the twins in her office alone than any of the other stuff. That made me laugh out loud. I think it's such a clever way of discovering Pettigrew in the castle, and I love more scenes with the Weasley twins, but... I had a little trouble wrapping my mind around the fact they'd go to an adult - or give up something so good. It might be that my heart hurts a little thinking Harry won't get this wonderful link to his past now. Of course, the twins are so clever, they could probably work out how to make their own version of the map by now!
I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens, and I have to compliment you on such a riveting tale. I'm thoroughly enjoy it.

That was a fantastic reveal, but I'm a little stumped. If Bathilda had this all figured out for so long, why hasn't she done anything? She was quick to condemn Remus and Minerva, but she's in the same boat. She's a famous Historian - she could've used her own influence. Something is off. How would she have figured out about their Animagus forms when no one else had?

Okay, no. Hell no! I love this story, every single moment of it, except the bit about Dudley in this chapter. As far as I'm concerned, Snape wipded his memories and turned his hair red like Lily's and had him get adopted by a nice couple under the name Ley Evans so that Dudley can live a normal life free from his parents toxic influence.
Aside from that, Petunia and Vernon's punishment is very fitting. I enjoyed everything else about this chapter and it's a great way to end the story.

This is some randomass British muggle news channel, we have found suspected corpses whose blood shows them to be -presumably- the Dursleys. They have seemingly been exploded, picture not taken for the amount of blood...
Albus turned off the Muggle News.
"What have you done to the durslys, Minerva?"
Minerva smiled a smiled worthy of the cruelest hufflepuff. (They can be quite scary.)
The next words that came from her elderly set of lips would follow Albus Peecibel Something another name Dumbledoor to the grave.
"What I'm about to do to you next." Came the crisp replie.
There was an entire article about the murder of Dumbledore.
(Aw heck, I had to do it. I love murderous McGonnigal.)
