I feel the need to reiterate that this story is just full of awesome, no ifs ands or buts.

This chapter was a enjoyable read and a good solid effort. Looking forward to more in the future.

Wonderful update. I adore the relationship between Harry and Gabrielle and love that you haven't forgotten Hermione's relationship with him along the way. Lisa is the perfect foil for the male bodyguards and, though we saw her only a little this chapter, it was clear that she will be a leader in Harry's security force. I didn't notice the "showing" until I read it in your author's notes. The story continues to move forward without hiccups or unwieldy time changes. I wonder though if Hogwarts will willingly allow Harry go since it is obvious she has a soft spot for him. Eagerly looking forward to the next installment.

This is a really good chapter. I know you messed with time, etc. to grow Harry up quickly. I like the changes in him. Kate is especially skilled in what she has done with him. I like a naughty Harry! I like the way he works with Gabrielle. It shows his loving big brother side. I'm glad Michael is so open with Harry. The way Harry dealt with Fleur's attitude at the dinner Harry didn't eat was excellent. She needs a few lessons in how to treat people she feels are her inferiors. Thanks for writing and I look forward to more. pms

Quite enjoyable chapter, especially the second half of it. It's always nice to read a self-assured Harry, and I've high hopes for interesting material later in this story.
Thanks for the update, and have a happy new year!

Superb. I am so glad that you updated this story once again as, just as with 'this means war', 'hope' and 'White knight, grey queen', I find myself thoroughly enthralled with the story and i love how you are portraying Harry. I think I'll need to re read this from the start.
I found this update at 12.30am and, despite being knackered, I just had to stay up and give it a proper read. Thanks very much.

Very fun and enjoyable chapter.
Love Michael! He's such a fun and wonderful guy. Usually Fluer's dad is shown as stuffy or prissy, but he is very cool. Harry flirting with him was such great fun. Loved it.
I also like the effect Mel & Kate have on him. The Dursley's warped Harry in many ways, including not being able to really let loose and enjoy himself and taking on the blame for stuff he didn't do. This harry is much more relaxed, open, and stable.
As for the time-bending thing, I know you said you weren't happy with it, but I think that it came out rather good. The sense of time passing was there, but we also got peeks into the details of it and Harry's physical/emotional reactions. The transition was smooth and flowed well.
All in all, great job. I'm eagerly waiting for more...

Happy Holidays! Thanks for the Christmas present (ie. update).

I wonder what is happening inside the Room... I can't see any reason for him not to wake up in the bed (except if Hogwarts is too weakened... but the not feeling alone part tells me it is something else...)
Ouch... I think that Fleur will hear some truths about her attitude at the dinner from her parents...
You know, I like your Michael Delacour!
I wonder, will someone (other than the twins) recognize Kate and what her job is... and if so, what will the reactions will be... And now that I wrote that, it is obvious that, as they will be front page of the newspapers the next day, someone WILL recognize Kate, and though maybe not DURING the Ball, there WILL be a reaction...
I hope to read more soon!

Wonderful chapter! I'm glad this isn't another of the Saint Potter/chastity etc. stories. It brings quite a new perspective into play when Harry actually chooses to use his brain to get himself into a better life situation. Great job and I continue to look forward to more of this story. :) TLC

Brilliant chapter, as usual. You might want to look at the wine served in the restaurant again. There is no way a 96 Châteauneuf-du-Pape tastes like it still wore nappies. Simply because at time of the Tri-Wizard Tournament this vintage does not exist yet. Harry starts school in 1991, the Tournament in in his fourth year at school, starting 1994. However long Harry spent in time dilation outside it is still 1994, the Yule Ball not having taken place. A 96 vintage would not be for sale before 1997 earliest.
That said I like the idea of a sentient Hogwarts and I like the Harry portrayed in this story.

Well, I liked it quite a lot and I had no problem with the time passing quickly.

Great work, I really love your characterization of a mature Harry. Especially the talk with Micheal was gold.

More soon, please.

season greetings back at you and the news that if you don't like the chapter, you can at least be proud of this harry you've created. The fact that this harry is somewhat a-typical of your usual type is somewhat of a pleasant surprise.
so compliments to the chef. for I like the starter and can't wait for the main dish after this chapter :)

Pretty good update to the story. There seemed to be a few mistakes (2-3), but they might be how you wrote the characters. I hope to see more.
Also, in the review box, is that a quote from Repo! The Genetic Opera?

I loved this chapter, not that I've ever had trouble sinking my teeth into any of your stories, but this one was a nice surprise. I look forward to seeing changes that will come about from writing Harry as a teenager instead of an unearthly saint. Stopping the time training was a nice touch, with attention to the fact that nothing comes from nothing and so the energy needs of the dilator had to come from somewhere.
Keep writing and I like many of your fans will most definitely keep reading.
