Wow, that was by far the most amazing story ever. I absolutely adore it. Nothing quite matches up to this story. I'm glad it ended the way I did but I'm absolutely heartbroken I'll never get to read anything new in this universe. Amazing, simply amazing. I commend you on your fabulous skills, this story blows my mind.

A very great story. One of the best i've read. When will the epilouge come out?

Since I've already started, I've decided to keep going with this story. But don't think I've forgotten your recommendations. They're high on my (rapidly expanding) list of things to read.

First of all, I was happily surprised by the ending here. I appreciated seeing that Harry was wise enough to realize that his strings were being pulled. But I liked it even more that, rather than just getting mad or sulky, he needed to take an active approach to figure out why he was being manipulated. Of course, that advances your shipping plans nicely, but it also hints that there could be significant points of conflict between Harry and his allies down the line and that's only got me more intrigued.

Elsewhere, I realized as I was reading this that another thing you like to do in your stories is have Harry and his closes allies mold the environment around them to suit his needs or desires. You did it to a certain extent in WKGQ and TMW, but you're even more overt about it here. It certainly serves to show how powerful and respected Harry is that he can walk into a school for the first time and completely restructure the way the place runs the first week. And you obviously do need some sort of system of subdivision to do what you want with Quidditch, though with as little as we know about Beauxbatons, I'm not sure why you didn't just set the school up that way to begin with. Looking for extra reasons to make Harry and Gabrielle work together?

Anyway, back to Quidditch. I love the idea of an inter-school tournament. It's a really nice way of bringing fanon in line with what we see in the real sports world. It also gives you even more freedom with your setting (It'll be very interesting to see what you do with Durmstrang). But that it's such a tense subject is what's even more interesting. I can't say I'd ever considered the possibility of Harry's returning to Hogwarts for a Quidditch match being one of the biggest points of conflict in a fic. But if you're going to play up Quidditch in a story, you might as well play it up big time, right?

And that brings me to Dumbledore. I'm having a hard time wrapping my HBP-influenced mind (Dumbledore's man through and through) around the fact that he could have alienated Harry so much to make him avoid Hogwarts so vociferously. But I suppose it's a logical enough worst-case conclusion to have drawn from OotP, and like I said, it makes for a very thought-provoking point of contention. It also forces your Harry (both here and in WKGQ) to act more independently, which can only help develop Harry's character when you make him as powerful as you do.

Anyway, I know I'm rambling tonight, so I think I'd better leave it there. But Thanks as always for the interesting read!

I started reading this story about when you hit ch. 7, and it's is by far one of if not the best story post hogwarts i have ever read. The deatail ,and emotions you put into each character was great, and the thought to make such a story is awe inspiring.
Loved the sotry.

Here I am, taking another leap into the rough waters of a non-H/G fic, but in this case you knew exactly how to greet me. In the first segment I almost felt like I was reading a first-person perspective on The Season (may it rest in peace in the land of long-forgotten fics).

Jesting aside, though, Harry's spectacular injury and the media circus were pretty darn clever ways to start a story. They're the perfect excused to get Harry out of familiar places, giving you control over the setting as the as the action. And if it's one thing I've learned about your stories, it's that literary freedom is something you exploit well.

I definitely enjoyed Hermione and Ron's clever and manipulative efforts to convince Harry to go to France, and I was pleasantly amused to see Dobby show up in this like he did in WKGQ. I'm also intrigued by Gabrielle, especially in her incredibly organized approach to understanding Harry. It almost seems like you're mixing Fleur's attributes with Hermione's attention to detail, which is certainly a combination with a lot of potential.

I also rather appreciated Gabrielle listing Hermione alongside Cho as the major women in Harry's life. But if she's got every clipping from the Daily Prophet, what else is she going to think?

What didn't I like? Well, this is the third novel-length fic of yours that I've read, and in all three your female lead has committed herself to Harry before he even knows she's interested in him. Admittedly, that makes the most sense here, where you've got the freedom of working with a non-human character, but I would have been nice to see a little variation in the routine.

The secret bargaining before Harry even comes into the story is also something you've done before, and in this case I was somewhat put off by how readily Hermione joined in. I appreciated Ron's resistance and can even understand how eventually came to agree, but Hermione never even tried to stand up for Harry. Is she so perspective that she immediately concluded the plan would be in his best interest?

Really, though, those are pretty esoteric complaints. All in all, I think you've set a very interesting stage so far. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

Well, I wanted to wait to review until the chapter sunk in...but it hasn't. :) So, rather than a point-by-point...

I loved that you took care of the match, the announcement, then the Dumbledore/Snape/Draco issues in one fell swoop.

I also loved that the fic came full circle.

Can't say much more other than this was awesome, the "obliteration" was more than I imagined (though wasn't it in Red & Yellow, not OLT? Or did it get edited out of OLT and I just can't remember the original?), and I look forward to the epilogue.

well I'll read the epilogue but already wanted to thank you for writing another great story for us lowly fans ;). the fact that I loved it should show in the fact that the time now is 3:30 here and this isn't a habit of mine. so thanks and good luck!

Bah. Great chapter. When is the epilogue gonna be out?

warpwizard posted a comment on Monday 4th June 2007 9:00pm

Good chapter, very meaty. I prefer Quidditch as background material too, though it didn't bother me in this fic.

Inziladun posted a comment on Monday 4th June 2007 11:30am

Well I've been reading the fic as you updated and I've really liked it.

You have used a not overdone pairing and you have made it so that its neither immoral (if this term even exist in the fantasy world) nor the easy way, that its saying that veela appear to be 9 until they are 16 when they suddenly grow... (not that I don't enjoy those).

Appart from that, the way that harry became who he is (he found merlin's grave) its quite original (at least I've never read it before that way) and its not
divine intervention... So great that too.

So all in all its been great to read this fic and I'm nearly wanting to tell you not to finish it, but things come to an end and I suppose that this fic is nearly finished. So congratulations for the story, I'd like to see some other story of yours soon but we can only Hope .pun intended...

A Beautiful ending that makes me wish I'd fall in love young, but alas . . . hopefully when college starts next fall my chance will arrive!

yeah longish, finally over, sappy, WHATS NEXT ??

brad posted a comment on Sunday 3rd June 2007 2:01am

Good ending to the story (although I'm still eager to see the epilogue, of course). Had to laugh a little when Harry used the 'obliverate' - oh, sorry, 'obliterate' - spell. :-)

Although Harry *did* get away with a clear-cut case of manslaughter, didn't he? Draco was captured and couldn't get away. There's no mention of his wand, but it seems clear that he didn't present any danger to Harry. But Harry still exterminates him. Hmmmm.

I wasn't surprised at the discovery that Dumbledore had planted the idea to mate on the eight-year-old Gabrielle - that's one of the drawbacks of reading your Yahoo group, the possibility was discussed ages ago - but I thought the reasoning behind his having done that was pretty flimsy, the case seemed weak. He wasn't suffering from dementia back then ... imperiused the little girl, forced her to mate ... but just decided 'not to follow through'?!?!?!?

Loved Viktor and his 'prettiest chaser', an amusing little thread of humour woven throughout the second half of the chapter.

Thank you for a great story!

The end of an era. I am just going to go cry now.

Bethany posted a comment on Saturday 2nd June 2007 11:07pm

As always, the story was amazing. I love the fact that you got Viktor and Katie together, I was feeling sorry for her before that. Nice move on having Dumbledore be the one to have Gabrielle Mate with Harry, didn't see that coming at all!
Thank you for sharing your talents with us, your stories are always enjoyable.

Really spectacular story, especially at the end where DD gets his due. Personally, I think Malfoy got off a little too easy, but hey, if it's good enough for Buffy :) ... As always, thanks for a great read!
