Muggle laser surger = LASIK (Laser In-situ Keratotomy); at that time, it had started catching on in Britain, as well as the United States. It has since progressed that more near-sighted and far-sighted can take advantage of it for correction to full-range vision - the only exception are astigmatics ("lazy eye syndrome").

What is wrong with being 5'8? Johnny Depp is that! And Robert Downey Jr. is lower then that. Why do heroes always have to be like 6 feet?

Uhm, explain why Tonks as an Auror just let's Dumbledore plan on kidnapping Harry?

Aha - the 'rebuilding Harry' phase. Next is either training for Harry, manipulating the situation, or both. Still a good story. I appreciate how you portray conversations and people's interaction.

Looking forward to more!

Amazing. You made me like Pansy.

Honestly, there should be more stories involving Dobby kicking ass. And I'm still waiting for a story where Dobby tosses Voldemort around like a toy.

I like how this is going. In many ways it's pretty realistic

it's a very well thought out story although I'm not so sure Harry's eyes would be settled enough for him to get laser surgery on them....my sister had to wait until she was well into her 20's before getting it done. I guess it can be explained away as him being a wizard but just thought I'd let you know :)

I've always felt this was a neat story. COuld've done with the whole Ginny bit but it's your story so I can't rightly complain.

One thing I noticed is that: in this chapter, Dobby tells Dumbledore that he is working for Harry. Hermione is present.

In a later chapter, Hermione is shocked to learn that Dobby is Harry's house-elf. Is this a plot hole or did the words just not register for her the first time?

Well, I can't help it. You're starting to overcome my skepticism. I'm still having a bit of a hard time with the way you've tinkered with the main characters, but the writing's good enough and the story's clever enough that it's definitely drawing me. And that’s quite a step from where I was last night.

A big reason behind that is the fact that Malcom and Gruoch work really well. There's something refreshing about characters with the ability, intelligence and willingness to do whatever it takes to help Harry. Time-turners? Muggle surgery? Political intrigue? House-elf spies? Muggle weapons? They're all such logical weapons, but only with the right characters wielding them, and I think you've hit that spot on with the Parkinson's blend of pureblood aggressiveness and muggle ingenuity.

And the idea of a third side for the war is quite exciting -- something very fresh from my somewhat limited fanfic background. I'm very intrigued to see how the "good guys" react when Harry starts going his own openly way. It's looks pretty obvious that Tonks will follow him, but Remus and the elder Weasleys? That promises to be very interesting.

I’m doing my best to ignore Ginny at this point because you definitely seem to be setting up the romantic side of the story as a major point of conflict for down the road. But I do like that you’re not trying to rush Harry and Pansy together. The time-turner’s definitely helps in giving them more time to get to know each other. And even I thought Harry promising to help her overcome a fear of flying was an extremely fitting turn. That was one point where you could definitely use Harry’s excesses of loyalty and his ‘helping people thing’ to your advantage.

My favorite part of this so far has got to be Dobby, though. He's just hilarious; especially when he's angry. I loved the way he's become Harry's greatest champion. And that he’s perfectly happy (and able) to kick Snape's butt makes it all the better.

So, anyway, good job. I can’t help saying I'm liking what I'm seeing.

Loved this chapter, but I MUST point out an error hoping that there is more in the coming story. When referring to Harry's height, you have Dobby referring to Harry as a "magician". With the utmost respect, I cannot idly sit by and wonder what would lead you to have Dobby insult Harry as a magician- somebody performing parlor tricks, instead of complimenting him with respect as the full magic-bearing wizard he is.
Please respond,
Draxomulus +1

I already loved this but reading Dobby’s line about Harry being house-elf sized made me love it more. This is so clever. Poor Harry sounds like he’s in awful pain. Great chapter.

This story is amazing! I can't believe that I am actually going for Harry/Pansy. I like that the Dursley's got what they deserved even if I was sad to see what Harry's life was like. I also like that HArry is finally getting his independence and taking a more active role in the fight. You really have a good thing going here, and it would be a shame to let it go to waste. I and I'm sure many of others would love to see any updates of this story. Everything is p[rogressing nicely so far, but I can't wait until I get to see everyones reactions to the new Harry and Pansy.

Ch.2 - - I liked the fact that Harry admired in the Parkinsons, and Grouch admired in Harry, the practice see-a-problem-make-a-plan-solve-it approach.

This is a very logical appraoch to solving Harry's problems ina pragmatic Slytherin manner.

I like it a LOT!

"House-elf size is good for house-elves, but it’s not so good for great and powerful magicians.” - Dobby

My Killer Quote of the Chapter.

Earlier in the chapter, Dumbles refuses to take Tonks' advice and sends Harry a Portkey. Dobby intercepts the intended pass and proceeds to hammer the entire Order (physically, in the case of Severus). Speaking of Tonks, she later visits Malcom and is briefed on the Harry Situation. Ginny realizes (through Dobby's report). that she's really bunged things up with the comment about Dean. Harry learns about riding horses (unfortunately for Pansy, he takes to riding horses as well as he took to riding a broom) and starts Reconstructing Harry.

Good god this is a great story. Again I beg you to not ever abandon it.

The only thing that does make me gag is the H/R, mainly because I hate Ron.

You've got a talent my friend.

What a refreshing change! Finally somebody got Harry out from under them Dursleys, for good. So, let me see if I got this right...A) Problem (durselys) B) Plan (check on him there) and C) Fix the problem (remove him) and C2) ruin them muggles
