Reviews For Fair and Foul
Luckily I saw it after you published 'The Cursed Photograph', because I hated to lose it!
Lockhart... just gotta shake my head and be glad he's dead. What a mess. Poor Lily. I wonder that Lily was able to keep the pregnancy from James. I guess she used concealment charms? And delivered Rose during the summer?
Poor Severus... having this baby dangling in front of him, wanting to be her dad at some point.
Poor Harry feeling unloved and unwanted. Wow.
This is deep. And complicated. I appreciate you coming up with it, and writing it in such a way as to make sense, and fit in, and be plausible. Well done.
Great story. Thank you for writing and sharing it, and updating.
I really hope that Snape can come up with a better way to help Harry than just telling Dumbledore.
The part with the train and Snape getting Luna to go back was really cool. So nonchalant super power dream walker!Snape. I love how you add that coolness to his character. I'd love to see more of it.
Thanks for the updates! And for writing and continuing to post here!
Harry's idea to tell the Durselys that he was killed by a basilisk is hilarious, witty, and so in character. I think most people can't write that sort of witty, dry humor that is so integral to the books, but you pulled it off. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you! I always try my best with the dialogue. Glad you like it. :)
Author's Response: In this Story, Harry and his friends will befriend Luna a bit earlier. :)
Author's Response: Thank you! Glad I could surprise you! (Come on, it isn't such a low blow - it isn't the first, or even the most outrageous lie Mr. "loyal death eater" Snape tells ...)
Author's Response: Thank you! The decision to leave Harry with the Dursleys is one of the hardest to explain while maintaining that Dumbledore is a good person. I prefer to assume that Dumbledore didn't expect them to make Harry live in a cupboard, though he must have suspected that they would not love him like their own son. (Perhaps Petunia's letter to Hogwarts skewed Dumbledore's perception? She was probably very polite in that one.) After Hagrid came to fetch Harry, Dumbledore must have known. At this point, safety considerations really are the only way to justify his actions. And we know he is ruthless - he sacrificed his own life (even if only a couple weeks of it) for the victory over Voldemort. But the initial decision to send a tiny baby to live with people who hate him ... yeah, I really prefer for him to have believed they wouldn't be worse than Neville's grandmother. It is probably partly because Dumbledore thought Harry's magic would protect him from any serious attempts at murder that he left Harry with them after Mrs. Figg must have informed im they imprisoned Harry. (That rat poison Harry mentioned in my story? Would totally have killed him if he wasn't magical.)
