English isn't my mother tongue. Therefore please be patient that I can't update my chapters as soon as I have them written. They have to be checked by my beta first!

Thanks to my wonderful beta, Amaq Iraluq, for correcting my mistakes.

1. Chapter 1 – On the Plane by grugster [Reviews - 7] starstarstarstar (1902 words) Printer

Dear readers,
I did a lot of research for this story. I tried hard to read as much as possible about the Cherokee to not make stupid mistakes. The last thing I want is that someone feel offended. Please read my description and explanations to this story in my Livejournal. The link to it you can find on my profile here. There you can find a detailed summary and descriptions to the characters. In this story will be a lot original characters and so this would make things easier for you to follow.
The story is canon conform until book four and from then on it is AU!!
I’ll mention rape and torture in this fic but it won’t be described in detail. All the characters are OOC because of his changes in Harry’s fifth year.
The Character death warning I only included because there will be mentione the death of Neville and Ron. No more characters will die in this story!

There are still 6 more chapters finished, and I will need some time to feel into this story again before I can restart writing on it. I think the last chapter I wrote two month ago. I will finish one of my other stories next week and then I will start chapter 25 for Cherokee Camp and hope it will fascinate me as much as it did when I started it.

I hope you all are still reading. Please leave me a review!

Dear readers,

this story seem to be cursed. My new beta became sick and now isn't able to edit my chapters. That's the reason why I couldn't upload for over a month, I have ten more chapters finished for this story. It WON'T be abandoned.

I found another beta and I hope the chapter is okay. I just wanted to give you something to read. I'm really sorry for this whole situation and I'm very sad that I couldn't upload this chapter earlier. :( Believe me this is effecting me even more than you. I hope you are still with me and PLEASE review. I need it VERY much!

Dear readers,

a new chapter! I hope you like it!

All those who hoped to find the sweat lodge ceremony in this chapter, I have to really dissapoint. The sweat lodge will take part in chapter 37! Many more things will have to happen before and the way to the sweat lodge is very long! So please be patient. You will learn about the other characters a bit more in the next chapters before I let you sit with them half naked in the sweat lodge. ;)

26. Chapter 26 - Setback by grugster [Reviews - 8] starstarstarstarstar (3149 words) Printer

Dear readers,

I think I need to give a bit of informations now. I could hardly find any texts/information about Cherokee. I fear they never used the sweat lodge ceremony, but I needed it for the plot. So please try to over see this. Most of what I write in this story is influence by experiences I made on a farm for drug addicted people in Austria. And of course many things are just made up by me. So don't take it all too serious. This is fanfiction not an attempt of me to show any real kind of therapeutic actions...

I also have to warn you that the next two or three chapter will be heavy stuff. Lots of drama. I wrote it during a time were I was very, very down, but I promise this mood won't last for a long time.

27. Chapter 27 - Healing by grugster [Reviews - 11] starstarstarstarstar (3057 words) Printer

Dear readers,

Back when I wrote this chapter, over two month ago, I thought about stopping to submit this story and Final Breeze 2. The chapters became to overpowering because of my depressions then. So I thought it would be best not to submit any longer. Then I started to get it under control and the following chapters became more 'normal' again. I spoke with my moti-betas, and they said I should keep on submitting. I hope I did the right decision. I still fear you won't like this chapter and stop reading. I can promise you that it will get better again after one or two chapters! Please be patient with me!

Now you learn more about Maya! I'm sure you won't think so bad about her after reading this chapter. Don't judge people by the first thing they say to you or what you hear about them. Sometimes people just have a bad day or have there reasons to be like they are.

Dear readers,

I would like to state again that this story is not REAL. I don't want to give you an inside view of any real therapy programs or so. I just put together a few experiences of myself and a LOT of imagination. I write my stories to balance myself out. That's also the reason why many of my characters have a control issue. I know that many of you are annoyed by it or even start to hate my stories but I need that to balance myself. At work I often feel helpless or restricted by laws or my boss. In my stories I can let my characters have power and control and it feels good for me to give them more than it is healthy in REALITY! I write my stories for me, but I realized that some people like them, even so they are a bit weird. That's why I upload them here. I won't change the way I write this or any other story. I'm not a good writer and it isn't my goal to become one! I like to learn but my main reason is to help myself with this stories. Feel free to tell me that you don't like the way I write things, but don't expect me to change it. Everyone has the right to have his own option, and you all have the choice to read or not read. Please just respect that I won't change the way I write. ( I added this information because of a review I got on another fanfiction site. It seems some people take my story too serious.)

So if you want to know if something is just made up or a real experience of me, just ask me in a review and I will tell you. Otherwise try to think that it is all just made up. There will come two chapters soon where something happens that wouldn't happen in any therapy, and if someone would do something like that, he would loose his work. I will give a warning before it happens to remind you again.

So now enough of this. I won't mention it again! So please keep it in mind.

Dear readers,

We are finally are coming close to the sweat lodge. I hope you haven't lost your interest!

I'm currently writing on chapter 60. So I fear this fic will become longer than "Harry and his new family". I would have never guessed. I originally planned it to be 20-30 chapters, now I think I'm hardly in the middle of everything.

It seems my reader on this site already loose interest. Of course I still know that a few are reading and so I will go on updating. Therefore I would like to thank especially silverstargirl and crazychick84 who reviewed my last chapters.

41. Chapter 41 – Letting out some Steam by grugster [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarstar (3764 words) Printer

Dear readers,

thank you for all the review on the last chapter. At the moment I have some motivation problems and you helped me some.

IMPORTANT!!! I know I scared you all with the end of the last chapter. When you read this chapter now, remember that it is fanfiction. It's not real and that are no real methods. Black Hawk is a character I created. He has his own terrible childhood and now is starting to learn to help others. He is no professional. He just does what he feels is right. I made him do what he does to Harry on purpose for telling his story and giving his character more depth. Light Arrow will reflect Black Hawk's behavior and the whole situation in the camp. Remember I tell a story here and don't try to give you a realistic inview in therapie camps/institutions.

42. Chapter 42 – Before School by grugster [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (2853 words) Printer

Dear readers,

for all those who haven't realized it by now, I uploaded a sequel to Harry and his new family. So if you are interested, have a look at it. So i'm a bit busy with it at the moment, but with a few lovely reviews you maybe get me back to Cherokee Camp as well. I still have a few chapters ready but they are not betaed at the moment.

This chapter is a bit confusing, and I didn't manage to make it clear that at the begining of this chapter we are at the beginning of the same day as last chapter with the wrestling and all, just this time out of Draco's view.

43. Chapter 43 – Helena by grugster [Reviews - 0] (3996 words) Printer

Dear readers,

I'm a bit overwhelmed and overworked because I write on four stories at the moment, and I just can't decide where to put my priorities. It's really hard when you have ideas for all your active stories and even more for new ones, but only limited time. So I switch between the stories and I'm not very sure if that is a good idea, but we will see.

I just hope you still like the story. You will get to know some new characters today. I really like them. Please let me know what you think about them.

I'm sorry you have to wait so long, but at the moment everything is complicated. I still write on my original book and won't finish it before July and then my laptop died and I had trouble to get my files back.

I won't abandon this story. I will finish it as soon as I have more time which should be from July. Chapter 67 is already half done.

"Harry and his new family II" and "The final Breeze II" are already done and I try to upload the chapters as soon as possible. But some still have to be betaed.
