What if the fates that let Harry's parents live the night he got his scar, also gave him a younger sister and let him befriend Ron Weasley earlier? What would be different?

Wonderful. I love the way you have portrayed Neville in your story. Every other fan fic I've read has portrayed him much the same as in the HP series. I'm glad you've taken such a different approach. I like Neville and feel he was always made to feel incompetent by his Grandmother. I don't think she did it intentionally, but holding his incapacitated(sp) parents as role models definitely seem to give him an "I'm not worth anything" complex. I love Ginny and Rose. Maybe we'll have a Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Neville/Rose?

Another fantastic chapter. This is just so much fun. You've written a very real plotline, a blend of canon and your wonderful imagination.

The two best girlfriends are wonderful. Now Ron and Harry get to play big brother. Again, your concept is well written, funny, and thoroughly enjoyable.

Love your version of the problems Harry and Ron had getting to Hogwarts. The whole everyone has parents and Harry has  a sister is awesome. I like your characters, their interaction, your scenerios. I can't wait to finish this and start your next one.

Betterer and betterer! This really is an awesome story. I love that James gave Harry the cloak and Rose the Marauder's Map. Lily will kill him if she ever finds out. Sirius and Remus will be cheering them on. I can't wait to see what you've done next.

The lightness is wonderful. Dark things are and will be happening, but the way you are developing this is amazing. I love the new Hermione. This is so much fun it could probably be declared illegal.




Chapter 12: Another New Marauder and a schoolwide prank

This new group is, I repeat myself, Awesome! I love all the deviations from the "original" characters and the new characters. Seems Lily still doesn't believe Snape would carry on that grudge against James, but James, Sirius and Remus all know better and warn the kids.

I am suspecting Peter is going to somehow be released from Azkaban for third year. As a rat, he could get past the Dementors, but how he gets to the mainland will be interesting.

Very smooth. What a great job of getting Harry, and the others to where you want them.

Another good version of the events. This version is exciting because, while I know or can guess the utlimate outcome, how it's accomplished is new and exciting.
