In the summer before his sixth year at Hogwarts, Harry Potter learns to come to terms with the death of Sirius. As he heals and grows emotionally, he learns how to enjoy life again. But there’s a war on, and Voldemort’s primary objective is to kill Harry Potter, by any means necessary. As a result, Harry and his friends have a very adventurous sixth year at Hogwarts. Canon-based with some OC.

Madam Desiree is an interesting character..... I suspected her true identity the first time I read this story..

I like the way Harry annoyed Seamus by jumping on his head in the cat form

Parvati Patil.... poor thing.....

It wasn't your best chapter.... but that doesn't mean it was bad.... the other chapters were excellent.... this was a point below excellent:) 



Author's Response:

A point below, eh?  Oh well!!  Glad you liked parts of it, anyway!

Woohooooo! Clifffy............... Poor Ron..... LOL

i love the banter Harry and Ginny share..... it's so like them..... however Harry is really obstinate.... he usually doesn't ask for help if he's hurt... yet after the dream he said he needed help... in JKs world he'd have refused any help LOL

great chapter :) 



Author's Response:

He\'s growing up and realizing he can\'t do things alone.  That\'s part of the growth of his character, as I see it.  He need to understand that he needs his friends to help him with the "final solution."  Understanding that he does need help from time to time shows maturity on his part.

Glad you like the banter and the chapter!

Awww! Poor Ron..... he's heartbroken.... I'm surprised Ginny took the news so well....

I also loved the memory Harry has about James

 



Author's Response:

Yup, poor Ron!  And Ginny\'s learning to think before she reacts, which is a sign of maturity on her part.  I loved that memory Harry had of James - glad you enjoyed it!

Poor Hermione... What a punch... the curse of the black widow is again a brilliant concept... .where on earth did you get your ideas from? at this rate your original story will be a success :-)

 



Author's Response:

My ideas come out of my very fertile imagination!  I have no idea where that curse came from - it was just something I came up with when I was writing this chapter!  Glad you like it!  Thanks a lot!

Another cliffy..... Another great chapter.... The only thing I'm slightly doubtful about is the spelling of Romania. Is it Rumania or Romania or is it the English and American spelling over there?

 



Author's Response: This review showed up twice for some reason.  My Brit-picker insisted that the spelling I used is common in England and Europe, and when I\'ve looked at European maps (not American maps of Europe, but their OWN maps, or Brit maps), it\'s spelled the way I did it.  I\'ve had Brits argue with me about it, so it must be used both ways over there.  I\'m not changing it - my Brit-picker, who\'s a well-educated Englishwoman, insisted it was right even after people started complaining about it, and I refuse to redo anything that\'s published (hey, JKR has books out there with errors in them, so why can\'t I???  ;->), so there it stays!  ;->

Author's Response:

My Brit-picker INSISTS on the spelling I used as the correct one in England.  I\'ve had a few Brits argue this point, but I\'m not changing it. Kelpie\'s word is law where Brit-picking is concerned!  ;-)  Glad you enjoyed the chapter!

Really sorry i didn't review for so long. I got a job last month and they are taking the life out of me LOL. Not that I'm complaining. I love the newspaper industry

I loved the chapter especially the Arthur-Harry little wizards talk.... Charlie is  the least spoken of Weasleys and I'm glad you gave him a role. That guy in Romania reminded me of this guy in the Godfather who says, "Don Corleone, I wish your daughter a happy married life and I wish her first child to be a masculine child"



Author's Response:

LOL!  I hadn\'t thought of that "Godfather" comparison, but it seems appropriate!  Glad you liked the little wizards talk and what I did with Charlie.  Glad you\'re doing well in your job, too!  Nice to see you here again!  Thanks for writing!

Very nice chapter.... nice gift bestowed upon Harry and Hermione LOL... it was very aesthetically written. The rest of the chapter was as consistant as always


Author's Response:

Thanks so much!  I\'m glad you enjoyed it!
