    Very ingenious. I always wondered how the twins found out how to open the map. Your way was the best I have read so far.

    Hmm, are we going to find out that Dudley has some magical power I wonder. The flickering dot on the map is intriguing, but I presume we are going to find out soon that HArry Potter is Harry Snape.

    And didn't the twins tell Harry all they knew about the map when they gave it to him?

    I really like your Dumbledore BTW.

Title: About A Boy 31 Oct 2008 2:45 pm

    Boy, all of those revelations have come to light rather quickly. Is there a reason why you changed Sev, Lily and Petunia's early relationship? Did Petunia love Severus as she apparently did not love Vernon. Is that one of the things that makes her so bitter.

    I ound the horcrux revelations a tad too blase...told to Harry while they wait for Severus to come back and in a very big hurry. I suppose you have your reasons for doing it this way.


    Author's Response:

    I get tired of reading fics that stick completely to canon and basically copy and paste chapters of J.K Rowling's work and call it fanfiction, so I decided to change how Sev met Lily a bit.  I also did want to do something with Petunia and Severus, but I don't know how that will fit into the fic.

     Yeah, I did rush the horcrux reveal, but I didn't want to just repeat canon.  I wanted Harry and the readers to have enough info to get by on but at the moment it is Harry's parentage that I wanted to focus on.  I'll do my best to return to these topics in the future :)

Title: Dealing with the Dursleys 31 Oct 2008 2:25 pm

    Nice to see Dudley using his brain. Petunia is a foul creature, just as foul as Vernon. She knows Lily would never have been vindictive towards her son, as she has been towards Harry. I wonder if she ever stops to think what her and Lily's parents would think of her treatment of one of their grandsons.

    Loved the line...Harry had thought that face was reserved for him and the occasional stubborn stain...very funny.

Title: Destruction of the Wards 31 Oct 2008 2:09 pm

    Good action scene...very exciting. I hope the fact that Volde got into the house doesn't mean he killed DD. WHy did Fred have a Portkey as well as using the Floo?

    Oh, yeah, and I very much hope Remus escaped Fenrir.


    Author's Response:

    Thanks for the review!  I made the phoenix necklace not as a portkey but as a medallion for Order members to use to bypass Hogwarts security and be able to Floo into the castle from their homes.  I'm sorry if that bit was confusing.  I know I didn't really explain that, but I wanted to do something to show that the twins were Order members.

    The intrique increases. You said wuestions would be answered, so I will not ask any and hope all will become clear.

Title: Prologue: Rescuing the Map 31 Oct 2008 1:52 pm
Reviewer: wrappedinharry (Signed) [Report This]
    You definitely have my interest.

    Gred and Forge at their delightful best.

    Can't imagine what their punishment for that last little misdemeanour would be if they were already going to be in detention until they left school.

    Very well written also.

    I liked this chapter and the back story on Harry being burned and the potion making him look more like James. Is Severus really his father?!?!? Can't wait to read more!

    Author's Response:

    Thanks for the review. 

     Yes, Severus is really his father.  It will be revealed in the coming chapters, so I hope you like how this fic progresses!

    Thanks so much for all your hard work on these chapters, when Lord knows you've got quite enough on your plate just attending medical school!
    I had to laugh at the possible side effects rattled off (just like at the end of commercials!)--but including "...constipation and excessive toenail growth"!!
    The other thing I really like is that your characterizations seem a lot more like canon. Snape, especially, can be a hard yet delicate balance of qualities, and you really do a nice job. Well done!

    Author's Response:

    Thanks for the review! 

    You're first line really made me laugh!  Yeah, I don't know why it took me so long to decide to write my own fic...I really should have started when I was in college and had far more free time.  At least updates would have been more frequent!

     Those commercials were exactly what I thought of when I wrote the side effects.  I had to toss in something random that wasn't too gross, so I'm glad you liked it :)

     I'm glad you like the characterizations.  Thankfully, I find Snape to be one of the easier characters to write.  The only one I have real trouble with is Harry!

    Ah, I thought that they were going to find out that Snape was Harry's father!

    I'm so thrilled that you updated! Very original plot. Very intricate potion as well. You are very creative to have thought of it!

    Can't wait for the next update!

    Author's Response:

    Thanks for the review! 

     Yes, I wanted to make it a bit different, so it won't be revealed (at least to Harry anyway) for a little bit more that Snape is Harry's father.  The potion is a bit of a hint (as was Lily's behavior when James volunteered his blood) for what is to come. 

     I hope you enjoy how it progresses!  Thanks so much for your kind words :)
