~"‘I am not another one,’ she said, in a cold voice. ‘I am the last one.’" Who knew? That was just what it takes for Jean's mother to approve... Hehe... ;)
~“I make him sick?” Hahaha!!! XD Loved that part...
~But really, I knew Katie felt something when Harry told them about the bond... But I didn't know then that Katie was the fourth girl Harry slept with... Really, I wasn't expecting that.
~Oh and BTW, great chapter! I enjoyed reading every word! :D
What an entrance! They sure showed Hogwarts! Great job!
I would LOVE to see a movie made of Beauxbatons' arrival at Hogwarts! And of Dumbledore's face! I'm SO glad Colin got pictures of it!
The whole school? Amazing idea. Nicely done.
Outstanding chapter to an outstanding story.
this chapter was wonderful i absolutly luved it. i will say it again as i have before this story so fits the title it is almost horrible to read to know that everything u write is completely true of how i see harry in the real HP books. honurable, caring, and protective of the ones he luvs.HOPE....HOPE......HOPE
This was AWESOME! I'm new to the site, and my friend recommended this story to me, and I didn't register until just a second ago, and this is really really good! I have to read more, but I have to get off the computer for now.... grrrrrr. Oh well, this story will be here in an hour or two! :D
PS I have a question: how do you become an author on this site? E-mail me at email@example.com (I know it's long, and fanatical, but it leaves an odd impression, no?) Hope to hear from you soon. Just put something about fanfiction authors in the subject line so I know who the message is from and what it's about. Thanks!
The way gabby retained some independence was a nice twist - and says a lot about both of them.
Potter's crew was a nice twist, but eminently logical. This is 'the old crowd' from the second war, after all...
Great chapter. Love your description of the beuxbatons move.
Thanks for writing.

This is one of the best written HP fics I've read in a while. I think I had read up to Chap 3 a while back and I found it again. Keep them comming!
Katie? Really? Constipated twins made me giggle. Harry’s dealing with the evil teacher was also so funny. That was a truly impressive piece of magic. Wonderful chapter.
I'm re-reading the first 8 chapters in preparation for chapter 9. I've discovered a perspective I didn't see the first time around.
Like many readers, I felt angry on Harry's behalf upon discovering TBD. This, of course, was weakened when it was discussed that Harry *could* have fallen in love and inadvertently broken the bond. Nonetheless, I still felt that Harry was in a situation where his nature and Gabrielle's choice had robbed him of free will.
Now, however, I have another idea. (Of course, all the other readers probably figured it out and have discussed it to death on the boards - such is my timing. Nonetheless, I continue undaunted.) At most, Harry lost romantic love for 8 years. Instead, he gained the opportunity for a love that is uniquely tailored to *him*, and not just in the Veela-mate way. Gabrielle represents an independent-human-plus-powerful-Veela whose strength and compassion match Harry's needs. Would any other woman have been able to satisfy him, with him being the uniquely powerful person he is? (i.e., did he actually sacrifice anything at all?) Or is he almost a complementary Veela-like individual whose only true love would have to be so uniquely magical, so uniquely powerful,... so uniquely Gabrielle.
Now that I re-read my "insight", though, I realize I've just more-or-less restated the summary of the story. *sigh*
BTW, I absolutely *loved* this line:
“Damn it, I need to date a Veela,” Oliver said enviously.
“Sadly, Ollie,” Katie pointed out, “Veela are also intelligent, and would run away if they saw you coming.”
HOPE ! HOPE ! HOPE !
I hope you'll update hope soon !!!
just love this story...best ever !!!!
keep updating !!! don't take too long !!!
( and think about this means war too pleeaaseee !!!!!
It's the old Cultural Relatavist argument - Everything is good to someone, therefore no one can possibly say that something is bad; because someone, somewhere likes it, and someone, somewhere liking it is all that is required for it to be good.
By that logic, every story, every film, every poem, every song, every painting ever done by man is good; especially if they put a lot of work into it, it turned out they way they wanted it to, and most importantly, someone, somewhere likes it. Becuase those are the standards that are most important in art.
If you can't tell someone you think they're doing something wrong in their writing because you just aren't accepting their writing for what it is, then what exactly is the point of a review? Is it only for Ego Fluffing? That seems to be the opinion. Tell Tim how wonderful everything he writes is, or get out; but don't dare suggest there's something he could be doing better because by doing so you prove that you 'just don't get it' and are insulting the people who do like it.
You like his writing and don't see the problems I do. Fine. Why are you getting offended that I see problems?
Ah come on! You've left us hanging here! It's been over a month. I'm gonna cry. Nah, just bug you until I see chapter 8 up. How long does Beta-ing take, eh?
I know, I'm being a bum, but that's only because it's so good! Can't wait :D
Check this out, it seems to be a rip off of your fic, apologies if it isn't, I thoight you should be made aware of it
i can not wait for the next chapter to come out
Impressive story. Loved how they upstaged everyone with transporting the whole castle to Hogwarts.
When are you going to update? ;)
