Hey I never reviewed this story on your other web pages. So I thought it would do good to put them up here.
I love the chapter. The new Sirius and Doug are really good. I forgot Piers Poilkiss existed until you had put the chapter up
His father actually turned out to be a bigger jerk than him
Glad you liked it! Glad you liked the "new" Sirius and Doug too! As for Piers - the apple didn\'t fall far from the tree, as they say, as is too often the case! His dad\'s a jerk, so Piers is a jerk too!
Thanks for writing!
I liked Casey a lot. She was a very muggle Ginny and I guess that's why Harry fell for her
I liked the way you employed psychological treatment to help Harry recover from his wounds
Another great chapter
Glad you liked Casey! Yes, she\'s a lot like Ginny, but not as, um, physically aggressive as Ginny, I guess you could say. I can\'t see her getting in an actual fight, but I CAN see Ginny doing it (as the younger sister of six brothers, Ginny\'s had to learn to handle herself - as the oldest of two well-mannered girls, Casey never had to learn those skills). Yes, I thought Harry was going through enough psychological torment that it would take some psychological thought to get him well. Casey explaining the stages of grief to him and helping him through them was an important part of his healing.
Thanks for writing!
“Anytime you have an ouchie, you come to me and I’ll take care of it for you, OK?” LOL
Rita Skeeter aka Ruth Spectre. What a brilliant fake name. It was pretty easy to figure since you put a reporter in the story. Working for a muggle newspaper is hysterical. She'd do the tabloid jobs well :P
Great chapter again
Glad you liked it! Yeah, I can just see Rita working for a tabloid - she\'d fit right in! Glad you liked the "ouchie" bit too! LOL!
Nice chapter again. I don't get Harry getting scared of his uncle when he threatened to lock him the cupboard. I thought Harry apologizing was a bit far fetched because he never apologized to the Dursley's unless it was sheer sarcasm
But none the less I loved the chapter
Harry doesn\'t want to get in more trouble, and he knows he\'s powerful enough to cause a lot of problems. The majority of the fear is fear of himself and what he can do. And he\'s tried HARD to keep the peace this time - he\'s growing up and realizes he\'s STUCK there until he leaves for his last year of Hogwarts, and he has to make the best of it. He\'s MATURED - that\'s one of the reasons for the apology. Glad you liked it despite your quibble!
This was one of my favourite chapters in the story. Confessing everything to Cassey was very difficult for Harry and he did so and she took it really well
Ron is so mature in this. He's still thick but has suddenly grown up
Ron NEEDED to grow up. He\'ll grow up even more in the sequel to this story, "The Time of Destiny." Glad you liked the chapter!
Yeah you killed Casey off in this chapter. it was disappointing because I had grown to love her as a character, but expected after Rita's story on Harry's love life.
Poor guy is a wreck
Another excellent chapter
Thanks a lot! Yeah, I got a lot of flak from readers about killing off poor Casey, but I created her to be killed off. She\'s been so popular that I\'m using her in my original novel, "Star Sons" - and I\'m doing my best NOT to kill her off this time! (But no promises! LOL!) Glad you\'re enjoying the fic!
nice session with Harry and Ginny. 'Taking advantage of one another' LOL
Ron has suddenly grown up. It's nice to see that. He's very OOC but he works for me
He\'s only OOC if you consider HBP - and I wrote both of these bgfore HBP was published. JKR could easily have had Ron mature the way I did if she\'d carried on with him from the way he was in OoP. That\'s what I did, took the characters as they were at the end of OoP and "matured" them. Glad you liked the H/G bit and that Ron "works" for you despite your thinking he\'s OOC.
very nice chapter. i loved the business deal between Hermione and the optician.
"Altruistic humanitarian" left me in splits. Colin is brilliant
I usually don't comment on the sad parts of a chapter unless absolutely necessary but it was really well written :-)
Thanks very much! And yeah, Colin IS brilliant sometimes, isn\'t he? LOL! Glad you enjoyed the chapter!
LOL. My Hair hurts. that cracked me up
the concept of the refiners fire was really nice
and i loved the banter between harry and ginny
Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for writing!
