First and foremost I want anybody reading this review to understand that it is their story and they can do whatever they want in the context of this story. Now on to the review. The thing that has made this story so good is the fact that it's believable you can see everything happening in this story happening in the Harry Potter World. Up until now. Let me start with the obvious Harry's leg. Ever seen a show called house then you'll understand this next part of the review. I had a friend who had something similar happened to him only it was his calf. Knowing the struggles that he went through he got to the point where he could walk without a walker or a cane but if he had any strenuous activity his leg would give out on him. So in that context pretty much you Limited at least as far as keeping it real Harry and Voldemort's fight. 30 seconds into the duel and Harry's leg is going to be so bad that he's barely a going to be able to move, a minute into the fight and Harry's going to be laying on the ground in so much pain that he's not really going to be able to move much. Therefore minute-and-a-half and then we'll be over Voldemort will win Harry will be dead. Again it is your story and you can do anything you wish to do. But unfortunately unless you magically heal his leg somehow later on in the Fic it just won't seem real which will take away from your story. Again this is my opinion and has no actual bearing on the story. Now II pet peeve I have about this story is with all the preparing that Harry and the rest of them have done but her parents didn't have an emergency portkey? It just don't make sense to me but as I said that's just my pet peeve.

Well Molly is lying again. Really someone ought to tell the truth. It might shock a lot of people. Severus just screwed up royally.

Good to have non-magical England notified. Certain people and things don't need to be in Great Britain if it goes down.

Pet Peeve for this chapter: Authors that make Harry a wizard yet unable to defend himself from a flying rock that he knows is coming. Its even worse when the author has Harry able to stop spells in midpath and redirect them back at the caster but a simple shield is too hard to conjure. Why isnt he in brotherhood uniform when he goes out anyways? Lets face it, its common sense. So the real pet Peeve of this chapter is basically authors who are wishy-washy with how talented, powerful, smart their characters are just to fit the scene. Is it really that hard to "stay in character"?

Thank goodness you already said the Grangers would survive a few chapters back in your A/N or I would have been forced to get another mug of ice cream for comfort.

The birth then sprang aloft and flew back out the window. Um...how exactly would that work? <G>

Hi! I haven't reviewed in a while, sorry about that.
Anyway just wanted to say, I laugh every time V-v-voldemort cackles evilly. Really, is that part of the evil gene villains carry, or did he read too many comic books when he was younger?

I wonder what would have happened, if Harry had cast Lucerna Judico at Voldie, the DE's, Snape, and Dumbles.....<EG>

CH14 "...who gave up his rights as a human a long time ago."

THANK YOU FOR THIS!!!
So many fan authors, hell even JKR, falls into this trap. They have everyone angsting over the ethics of executing murderers. It's been bugging the crap out of me ever since I started reading HP fanfic.
The way I look at it, if you willfully violate fundamental human rights, you are rejecting your own rights. At that point, execution is no more than putting down a rabid animal.

Loving the story so far, which is unsurprising considering the quality of your other works.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this story

Thank you

PS The UK don't have an Embassy in Canada, it has a High Commission, and the 'Ambassador' would be the High Commissioner. The same holds true for all members of the Commonwealth... - just one minor detail ....

For the record…..I love this story, I love the writing, and I love the interaction. FINALY!!! For once a decent wizard wasn’t totally incapacitated by a body bind! You’d think it’d be standard practice to learn how to wordlessly dispel one of those, but it’ isn’t. Oh, another thing, if the head boy snuck into the head girl’s rooms, tied her up and used a silencing charm……..well, charges would be pressed.

Hey Mighty Goddess Alex

I have to say this... you missed a spot! You must have been busy torturing Alan somewhere when you by passed this mistake. Or was it possibly Bob?

Oh the mistake I'm referring to is the part where Molly sent that owl to Lavender's mum. Where the owl leaves? I never heard of a 'flying birth' even in Potterverse! That's a new one to me.

Nice cliffy btw. Since I'm reading this as a 'complete' story it doesn't affect me as much as others who waited. (That's a thing I like to do allot, read mostly 'complete' stories.)

Well, I'm reading this story quite a while after you've finished it, and I've only not read the latest chapter of "Power of the Press," so as to finish this. It seems almost ridiculous to leave a reply on a story you're only part-way done with, but I've found that I've always enjoyed them myself, so I figured that you might feel the same way.

Great story so far. I've never been much of a fan of the Super!Harry story genre, as I felt it was too much of a wish-fulfillment, blunt-force method of fixing the HP-verse's problems, but you've really done a good job of turning that on its head here. Harry might be super-powered, but he's not invulnerable and he's having to use his mind and his friends as much as he's using his powerful magic. He's having to lead, rather than just doing what he wants. Public opinion matters to him. He's not supremely confident, he just has a lot of power. In other words, he's still Harry. I'm a fan.

Now turning to the next chapter.

Molly Weasley is a wench in this story. Very brilliantly written.

Birth Controll for Voldemort :D
Sorry, that's perfect!
Thanks!

Harry's characterization is just a little too uneven for me to follow completely at times. He is far too emotionally fragile to be the person you have him at times and there is no reasonable predictive factor to what will set him off at one moment to the next.

Now seeing as how I've read the rest of this and the sequel already, I do admit Harry does even out some as we progress, but the beginning of this story suffers as a result.

Yes he is abused and has had his trust taken advantage of, but on the flip side he forgives far too easily (Arthur) and is way to amicable despite everything that happened to him. Poor Harry and the idealic characterizations authors force upon him (JKR included).

Thanks for writing,
Matt

Hey, sorry I havent replied untill now, but I just wanted to say that I love this story very much, and you two are both highly gifted writters. I have no doubt that if you wish to persue a professional career, you will have many devoted readers, me being one of them.

I noticed in this chapter however a typo

"The birth then sprang aloft and flew back out the window."

Surely this is meant to say bird?

GryffindorDragon posted a comment on Friday 1st June 2007 3:20am for Bad News, Howlers and the Prime Minister

'now days' - nowadays
'The birth then sprang aloft' - the bird
'wizarding version of Kevlar body armor' - didn't you say you weren't going to be doing such plot devices?
