Hey, if girls are weird and Harry is weird, does that make Harry a girl?

LOL

Amazing job, I loved the chapter, even if it felt short. Keep it up!

Cathy

Author's Response: LOL!  Hmm, yes, classic circular reasoning...  Nope!  Harry's not a girl!  Ginny would be heartbroken <eg>  Expect chapter 13 in about 10 days to so...  Glad you're enjoying this.

This is an amazing work. You've managed to make me fall in love with Snape, and believe me, it's not an easy job. I can't wait to see where you'll take this now, so update as soon as possible!

Author's Response: Cathy, I'm so glad you're enjoying this.  My aim was for a slow evolution of their relationship.  I've been told that he's OOC, but we rarely see him outside of his teaching persona in the books. :)  Sev says to tell you that he doesn't like Harry at all, and if it weren't for the impertenient brat's importance to the war effort and his promise to Lily, he'd simply just put the kid into Care....

I just finished reading your entire story and really like what I've read.  Your twists on OotP have intrigued me, especially Harry's feelings about being "outed" as a child abuse case by Professor Snape; the entire plotline about Harry's treatment at the Dursleys has bothered me and other adult friends for a long time and I'm really glad you're dealing with it in this story.  You seem very knowledgable about the subject and have captured both sides (Harry's and Severus Snape's) estremely well.  The part that Professor Snape started the investigation only because it was his duty as a teacher to report such things makes perfect sense to me as does his explanation to Harry of why he did it.  Speaking of Harry, my heart just bled for him when Tonks and Shacklebolt came to speak with him and Harry found it too hard to speak.  Altogether, I am thoroughly enjoying this story and hope to see another chapter has been posted soon.

Author's Response:

Thank you!  I've seen several stories in which the Dursleys are kind of caught-in-the-act, but I'd never seen one in which one of the Hogwarts teachers find out during the school year.  It was a rather obvious (at least to me) angle that hadn't been exploited yet.  I chose to set it during OotP because it seemed to me that the absolutely logical way for the abuse to be discovered was during Occulmency lessons. 

 I took the classes dealing with these kinds of laws and the effects of long-term child abuse as an education major a few years back.  I realize that the reason why JKR has never dealt with the issues she's raised by the Dursleys' treatment of Harry is because of the genre that she's based the books in--she's working from the classic boy-hero mythos.  As an educator herself, she'd be more than familiar with the law I'm exploiting for the purposes of this story.  

I'm very glad you're enjoying this, and I hope you continue!  Harry has a long road ahead of him, and I'm not just speaking of Voldemort.

What could Snape's marauder mind be thinking up now..Like when I read the book, I still cry when Sirius dies.



Author's Response: I'm afraid that Sirius's death is a necessary plot point...

I liked that your story is so close to the original but still very different, which results in a whole different take and outcome on the entire story.  Keep up the good work.

Thank you for your time and effort.

Author's Response: Thank you and you're welcome! :)

Excellent story!!  Just please tell me that Sirius doesn't die!  I'll be waiting for updates :)


Author's Response: I'd love to tell you that, but I can't, as I'm sure you've now discovered...

The plot thickens...update soon.

Author's Response: Planning on it, I promise.  I have slowed down a bit, though.  I'm trying to time my updates around the same time as my Schnoogle ones, and I'm fast running out of buffer.  What can I say?  Harry isn't being too cooperative!
