Old buzzard (over fifty crowd) who loves reading and writing HP fanfic. I live in Norther California, much to my chagrin, and have a Handyman business which keeps me busy and leaves me with enough time to enjoy my HP fan-aticism.

Escellent start to your story. You draw pictures with words which are easy to visualize. Well done. The ending pargraph, especially the closing sentence was killer. Vern

Author's Response: Thank you for the kind words, as well as being my first reviewer. You're wonderful!



Chapter 1: Memories
So Harry is stuck at Privet Drive once more and has much to think about. A crazed wizard out to kill him. The death of his godfather and friend. The Prophesy looming in front of him. And not even one note from his "friends." That's been Harry's summer break so far and can you blame him for wanting it to end? But should Harry really be looking forward to a year filled with surprises of all kinds and not all of them good?

After I posted the third chpater this morning I had to go back and read the other two. You have a well developed story going here. It is quite well written and you are doing a good job keeping everyone in character. How many chapters it the story?

Author's Response: *grins sheepishly* 46



Chapter 3: Secrets Always Hurt
An *R* rated outtake from Reign O'er Me.

Excellent outtake. I always wondered what happened in the shower that first time. :-) Great work, and a greaat story. I've been following RoM for a couple of months now on your website and really enjoy the tale. Vern
