Took you long enough, my friend! Well worth the wait, though. Now, hurry up and post the next two!

Speaking of which, I did notice the title of the next chapter happens to be my home city... good ol' Sydney. I'm curious how you've brought that into the story...as if I needed another reason to read the work of one of the Masters of FanFiction (Don't even try to deny it - you know you are!). I'll try not to nitpick details too much. :p

Eagerly awaiting your next masterpiece!

YES! I love it! This is easily one of my favorite fics EVER.

Have you studied socialogy extensively or something? Because you are very good at describing the reactions of people in correlation to others (i.e. - at the danse club, and at the hotel).

I absolutely adore this story. It's the only Harry/Gabrielle story I've ever seen and when I saw the pairing I admit to being a little wary. I am *so* glad that I went ahead and read it anyway, you have made me a true believer!

There are so many issues that you handle with such a delicate touch; the age difference, the non-human laws in England, Harry's vast power & wealth, Albus' (& Hogwarts) steady decline & Englands habit of forgiving Death Eaters with money or political pull.

And the thread of romance growing between Harry and Gabrielle that is woven throughout everything else is just wonderful. I can barely wait for the next chapter. This story is definately one of my all time favorites!

Once again, wonderful. I loved the chewing out that Rita gave crazy old Trelawny, perfect. It's about time Rita smartend up about trying to go against Harry. Beautiful job on the love scene with Harry & Gabby, passionate and full of beauty.
I can't wait to see what you are going to do with the 2 remaining idiots (SS & DD).
Love what you do, thank you for sharing your talent with us.

Amazing chapter. I especially liked the scene at the end, but I'm starting to wonder... is there anything that Veela power can't do? It seems to be the ultimate toolkit for Gabby when it comes to the condition of her body.

Thanks for picking this one back up!

Side note: If I remember correctly my "History of mathematics" lecture, Madame de Pompadour was the one who translated Isaac Newton's "Principia mathematica..." into French for a wider distribution.

just a small slip:

On chapter three you said that Aimee was 'approaching he fifties'. This chapter she is over 65...

Anyways - a wonderful read!

Another great chapter. Can't wait for the rest of the story.

knowing that the last few pieces of the story are in the pipeline led me to finally break with my "only completed works" reading habits so i guess I'm asking you to consider this a review for the story so far, and i must say that I am floored. you have the talent to spin a fandom cliche into gold and I am truly in a better mood than I was when I sat down to read.

having read your other stories here, and being familiar with the works of some of your betas (betae?), it goes without saying that the level of technical detail was also immaculate -- you didn't misspell any incantations or character names, you wove a believable and internally consistent story for Harry and the gang as well as a believable and internally consistent story of Merlin, breathed life into the character of Olympe Maxime for the first time that I've seen as anything other than someone for Hagrid to chase, and allowed the characters that I know and love to mature (or at least grow up) in a believable and natural way -- I can see hints of the canon personalities in this, and find myself thinking that there are hints of your personalities in canon.

sorry for the sycophantic praise, I'm just so happy to find something GOOD to read again, after a couple of weeks of settling for less. thanks for the good read. :)

And so the great Jeconais fanfic logjam of 06/07 is broken, and the bonanza begins!!

Very nice chapter, but did you have to make me feel so lonely after reading it? :-( Damn.

On the technical level, I'm wondering if Harry has put some of his power into Gabby's ring, such that he might be weaker than before. Or does his ability to 'tap' into the magic around him mean that his strength will always remain constant (in a given location), regardless of what spells he casts?

*SO* pleased that Hermione did the right thing and didn't use the break-bond spell before telling Harry about it.

The image about Gabrielle needing to be as *close* to Harry as possible after the bond was broken was quite riveting.

And the idea that Harry was a magical voyeur to Hermione's and Ron's lovemaking was just a little ... perverted. Ugh. Bleh. Canon!Ron's ears would have been so red his head would have burst into flames, I reckon.

Interesting turnaround with Sybill - "all thoughts of revenge against Harry gone" - pleased that you made such a twist, to keep us on our toes.

Thanks for the chapter!

I guess I'll be the voice of dissent. The writing was excellent, but I feel like something is missing. There was no real sense of conflict in this chapter. No seething Draco Malfoy plotting his revenge.

Early in the story you planted the seed that Snape was somehow controlling Dumbledore, but you haven't done anything with it.

I am glad that you avoided the 'Gabby kidnapped before the bond could be consumated and the race to rescue her before she goes insane' pitfall that I thought was coming - kudos on that.

Anyway it boils down to my major problem with the story is the lack of a real counter to Harry.

Another thing that bugged me is that throughout the story you reinforced that the bond prevented Harry from forming lasting and meaningful relationships, but in this chapter Harry becomes a 'Rico Suave' flirt. Those two simply don't work together from my POV. It would seem that unable to really develop lasting relationships, Harry would be weak in this area and instead be leaning on Aimee for advice.

He's just too perfect. His flaws are things like 'he cares too much about others'. He lacks real character flaws and anyone who dislikes him (like Sybil) is marginalized. How about having him face off with a young Hogwarts student who realizes that his/her parent(s) were DE(s), but doesn't understand why Harry killed them...

Then again, I'm the guy who likes a body count in his story, so I might not have the correct mindset to comment.

I hope (no pun intended) that you find my comments useful or at least thought provoking. I do enjoy the story, but would rather give a critical review than one that lacks any teeth to it.~Jim

Great chapter! It's been so long since you updated that I almost forgot that this story was still in progress!

I loved the duel ... and the obstacle course ... and Harry & Gabriel, of course.

Wow! I was only expecting the engagement, but that last part was a nice surprise. I'm really glad that you updated this fic. Now I'm anxious to see chapters 11 and 12! I love your fics!
