Something feels different in the tone. Harry's much more blatantly in charge, I guess. He's been slowly building up in his command stature, but this is much more an "in your face" kind of thing. Not a bad thing, necessarily, just different.

Did you have to call it Marge's Secret Lingerie Store? *shudder*

Yes, Flint, this proves you do indeed have a few screws loose.

Good try, Cissa.

Interesting insights into the psychology behind the werewolves. The whole mimicing thing.

> Veela tears
*blink* *think* Oh, clever wordplay.

> these hallowed halls.
*laugh* Did you choose that word in particular for any reason? :)

> He’s spent more time as a wolf, and it’s changed his personality slightly,
Ah, okay, ignore my first comment. That was intentional. And now that it's explained like this, it makes more sense.

> “You know,” Harry said slowly, “I really don’t care.”
<coldly> Good riddance.

> He enjoyed immensely the look of chagrin and worry that flashed over their faces.
Ah, good. We DO have a little torment for the two.

Gack! Jec, you were trying to get us to think Blaise was going to seduce Harry with Ginny in the room, weren't you? Either you or I (or both of us) have been spending way too much time around a certain harem fic writer.

> Ginny seemed to find the need to make deep breathing a national hobby, and stretching an Olympic sport, as she settled down firmly across his lap.
> as she undid her bra with an audible rustling of clothing.
> Molly’s voice called through the doorway
You are evil.

> “What ever happened to my shy little sister?” Ron asked the ceiling.
> “She grew B-cup boobs and got herself the best boyfriend in the world,”
*laugh* And she grew an attitude to match Harry's cojones . . .

> More than just an anything
I'm sure that means something (it's consistently Cissa's .sig), but damned if I can understand it

Love Kingsley's .sig, BTW. Tonks doesn't have one, though . . . "More than meets the eye", "Beauty is only skin deep", "Your eyes can deceive you; don't believe them", all sorts of possibilities.

Harry and Gwyneth made it supersonic and then ended up in orbit . . . Okay, now that's just showing off.

That whole scene at the end was pretty deep. Not bad, but certainly not light-hearted. This fic does have a little of everything, doesn't it?

I cannot express how much I enjoyed that chapter (esp. the dragons to the end). It was brilliant.

WOW! I want to ride a dragon! Or at least meet a friendly one. Excellent story, I look forward to the next part of chapter 10.

I have praised your writing before for it's ability to touch something inside of each reader. I had no idea that you could touch my soul to such a degree. The last few paragraphs of this chapter are beyond praise. They are a map for each of us to use in the future. The show that if we, as members of the human race, join together and fight for what is right, no goal is beyond us. Even at my age, I have never been so proud. Thank you for the vision of what can be and what should truly be fought for. I am so overcome with the emotions generated by what you've written that I am sure this review rambles more that usual. I have tears in my eyes from just viewing your vision. Though my words seem so inadequate, once again, I thank you. Yes, the rest of the chapter was excellent as well, but I was truly awed by the vision you showed me and how well you articulated it.

When Harry was lecturing Ginny about believing she can do wandless magic, I was really expecting him to tell her "No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try."

And I love the fact that Harry ruined Severus' sneer.

Very good, brilliant story.

However, I feel compelled to point out a little mistake concerning Hagrid's magic. It was hinted in one of the canon books (I'm afraid I can't remember which, but happened when they commented on how big the pumpkins were growing, Hagrid said that he was having a little help and looked to the pink umbrella that was leaning against the hut) that Hagrid took the pieces of his broken wand and had them placed in the pink umbrella he carried around. Thus, his magic wasn't wandless.

Otherwise, it is a brilliant story. Keep up the good work.

Hey love the story, but a quick question, wouldn't they be using metric instead of mph?

Please update soon

I must say that this chapter was well worth the wait, granted I know this is my first review, but I have been reading TMW for quite a while, and waiting with baited breath for the final chapter. Your treatment of several of the "established" concepts of magic are well thought out, and quite logical.

Harry's speech is one of the best written pieces of work I have come accross, although I must say that the results of it should have sparked one whale of an outpouring of magic, those oaths come very close to not only unbreakable vbows, but also oaths of fealty.

Thank you for not abandoning this most intriguing fanfiction, too many get a good start then just ... dissappear.

awesome chapter, amazing ending as well I beg of you to keep up the good work :)

Maxennce posted a comment on Friday 2nd February 2007 1:44am for 10b - Werewolves, Goblins and Dragons, Oh My! (Part 2 of 3)

very cool, very cool indeed. I was awed. If i had the ability i would have been bowed down in front of him pledging the rest of my life, knowledge and whatever else I had to him and his quest to change the world. As an animated character once said
"I'm going to take over the world" except harry's quest is going to change the world, for the better. There needs to be men like that on the world stage now,
keep up the great work, and glad to see that you;ve come out from hibernation, was getting a litte worried there for a while Tim, the radar was not bleeping
Cheers

This chapter was...enamouring. I felt feelings the way the characters did as I read, and I truly wanted to cry when you were describing Harry and Gwyneth looking down at the Earth. Feeling that raw hope that something better lies ahead. It was beautiful.

Anyone can put words on a page. Some people can form clever and witty sentences out of those words. Only a few can convey emotions so profound that they can make the reader take heed.

You sir, are a writer.

Wow! I feel like I've been through the wringer with the last section...

Congratulations on such a beautiful piece of work. Congratulations also to the betas for their wonderful work.

Eagerly awaiting Part 3!!!!!

Jeconais,

Tim,

What can I say? This chapter was truly inspiring just like always.

When I first started reading this story, oh so long ago, I think it was chapter 3 that had just been posted, and I was instantly hooked on the story. Of course, afterwards I had to go and read Naked Quidditch Match, but that is another story (bad pun, I know). At any rate, I eagerly awaited the next chapter and then the next and kept that habit going, right up until you pulled the story from ff.net so long ago. Of course, by then, you had this site up and running in its first incarnation, which gave me reason to read the whole thing all over again. *grin*

I remember feeling that it was time to party when you released chapter 9 after the long delay from chapter 8. That was excuse enough to read it from start to finish once again. Then you started to work on the other stories and placed TMW! on the back burner for a bit. I knew you would eventually get back to it since you had mentioned that you just had other things to work on that had priority, and not just other stories, but also the programming projects that you dealt with in RL, so I very dutifully kept watch on my email for the announcement of a new chapter.

Imagine the elation that I felt when the email came in announcing the new chapter. I was both ecstatic and saddened because I remembered it having been said that there would be only 10 chapters. Of course, when I clicked on the link to go to the site and found that it was chapter 10 part 1 of 3, well, I was just so happy that it wasn't over yet that I failed to read the whole thing again and just hopped right into the chapter. Then when I got the email that said that the next part had been released and it was only about a month and a half later, well, I did the same thing again. Just too darn happy to have a new section to read, that I did not even think about going back and reading the earlier chapters. Suffice it to say, that means I read the preview of part 1 and not the final. Oops. Ah well, I will go back and have to take a day to read the whole thing start to finish when you release part 3.

Others have commented on the dragon flight being like poetry in motion, and as I read it I too felt that way. It brought to mind the Dragon Riders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey but also the Dragonlance saga by Tracy Hickman & Margaret Weis. In fact, if I did not know better, I would say that you got the three of them to collaborate and write that sequence for you. It was that well written, and invoked a feeling of actually being there with the characters. My compliments.

The spy was not who I was expecting, of course, I'm not sure just who I was expecting, but not him. Well played and nicely hidden within the plot. To paraphrase what another reviewer said, Percy should have seen the fabrication for what it was, a whitewash that anyone should have known was fake. Even Percy admitted he should have seen it, but as Perce said, knowing what was supposed to be there and seeing what is expected can blind someone hence the need for an outside pair of eyes.

Mackrack surprised me with his offer, but logically and logistically, his reasoning was sound. Besides, Harry is doing his people a favor by keeping their teenagers busy and giving them the chance to earn some gold of their own before they start working in the bank. So it really is a fair deal.

The use of an ancient weapon that was designed to slow down and hinder pursuit being suggested by a Muggle was certainly an eye-opener for the wizards. Who would have thought. Not to mention caltrops can be devastating, and not just to the feet. Imagine launching a few hundred of those at a group, could be almost as dangerous as a claymore, and I am not talking about the sword. Imagine using Fred & George's fireworks to launch them out of a Jack-in-the-Box type of device and you get the idea. Plus, caltrops can be easily hidden, and even when they aren't hidden they can be hard to see.

Keep up the good work. I eagerly await the next part.

Wow. Just... wow. That whole chapter was just so well-done. It flowed together nicely, it solved certain things, and pulled others together, and posed a few more questions. I'm very curious to see what the next chapter will hold, but I'm delighted to have a second chapter in as many months. :) And this one was just so great that the only thing I could think of at the end was: wow. Way to go; thanks for writing, and thanks for sharing.
