I'm back! Thank you all so much for all your support this past year and a bit since the last chapter was uploaded. Every month I get a lot of views and people adding this story to their favourite or follows list. Thank you so much!

Yes i know, making the first chapter an AN is technically against the guidelines but i finished rewriting the first chapter and it wouldn't count it as updated unless i add a new chapter rather than just replace and existing one. Please don't report me!

Anyway, considering the number of stories I have in the running at the moment, I will be making on of them my main focus and uploading it every two weeks, the others will have a monthly update. There is an ongoing poll on my profile where you can vote for your fave story.

Please check it out.

This is the second edition of this story and I have to say, I'm happier with this one. This chapter is twice the length of the previous version, though I added a lot more into it so the next few chapters will have scenes taken out.

Changes from the last version.

I got rid of the rape completely. I have no idea why I wrote it in here in the first place. It gets in the way of my plot. It's gone now. I have made a few changes to the way I've written the first chapter, generally writing it better than before and correcting old spelling and grammar mistakes. I changed a few things around a bit, Harry doesn't have time control over his pocket dimension yet, if at all, and he managed to get rid of all the chains on his magic instead of loosening them.

I moved the scene with Hedwig's reveal from chapter four to here as it made more sense as Harry removed the familiar bond. I find it hard to believe that Hedwig would wait any longer than necessary to bond with Harry. I also included the shadow wolf as I was having a hard time finding a way to fit it in later in the story line.

I added a scene of Snape catching Harry on his way to the common room as Madam Pomfrey doing a medical scan and wanting to contact Gringotts is a lot more believable than Harry seeking emancipation.

I removed a scene where Harry tells Fred, George and Lee the full extent of his abuse, even after deciding not to. This didn't fit in with his character. I also changed the argument Harry had with Ron and Hermione as it was unreasonable given its place in the story. Harry completely over reacted and was acting like a spoiled whiny brat.

I revamped the Quidditch scene. I made it longer and more realistic.

I have tried to work on my characterisation but that is difficult for me to do. I have also been working on trying not to, and I quote, "Bounce around from emotion/Personality like a friggin flubber." Thank you nightwithmoon for pointing out I did that, even if you were trying to flame the story. You were pointing out a flaw in my writing that I have since worked on correcting.


Please leave a review or Favourite of Follow this story. I welcome feedback with open arms.

Flames will be used to set fire to Dumbledore.

Hope to hear from you all soon!
