"If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I’m alive and well, will you be
There holding my hand
I’ll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might"
Sorry, couldn't help the reference.
Hee, I love naming chapters. Right now I'm writing a sci-fi that takes place millennia in the future, but the chapter titles are all classic song and poem titles. The incongruity is fun.
Also thinking that the online sobriety test is quite appropriate, seeing as New Years is just past. Luckily all I had to drink was a rather small mimosa and a smaller poinsetta, so I passed with flying colors (speaking of which, how's about "Flying Colors" as a theme song for the canon R/H relationship?)
Finally, aside from complimenting you on the chapter, I once again find a shirt I must own. Really, I think you could sell designs to AOL/Time Warner Books for merchandising.

This is a great story, but I think your method of destroying Bristol is at the most impossible and at the least highly overstated. In order for gasoline to explode with force, as opposed to merely igniting, it needs to be vaporized and put under pressure. Car engines get their power because fuel injectors vaporize the gas and mix it with air, and the piston compresses the gas. When the spark plug sparks, the resulting reaction causes a release of energy in the form heat, causing the rapid expansion of the gases. This rapid expansion inside of the enclosed piston causes the force to be concentrated. A bullet works in a similar way.
In your story, the death eater ignites a large amount of liquid gasoline. While the outermost layers of the gas would vaporize due to the low vapor pressure of gasoline, the interior would remain liquid. Though in such a situation, a large fireball would occur, but the explosive force would be dissipated over the whole area. Furthermore, the reaction would be limited because all of the oxygen in the near vicinty would be consumed.
As for the natural gas, I am not as sure, as the gas would already have been in vapor form. However, as natural gases burn at low temperatures, it seems unlikely that the entire city would explode. A more plausible effect could be that the natural gas fire caught other flammable materials on fire in a nearby warehouse, and the fire soon spread to the rest of the city.

i do love this story, and I'm reading it again for my own personal I get that added thrill of you using my humble summary as the official summary, that's so dope! anyhow, I dont know how you've done it, but you have made fudge almost likeable in this story. I mean yeah he's a bastard, and everyone knows it but he's been absolutley hysterical so far especially when he interacts with bumbledork and weatherbee of course.

Wonderful story, really! I love every chapter, even if they are quite long...but hey, somehow I manage to get through them.

By the way, I've written a story similar to yours, not knowing about this one at the time. It's posted on, my author name is Harry85, if you would like to have a look at it it is called "The Heirs of Darkness" and you would make me happy reviewing it! Thanx!!

I love some of your details, guys. You have me cracking up almost enough to wake my little boy, who'd really be hacked off at this hour.

As much as you say you hate Draco, he's so likeable in this fic that it brought tears to my eyes when he threw himself at his recovering mommy. Maybe because I'm a mom myself? Or maybe just because you guys are fantastic writers...

He could have used magic to isolate the poison, then bleed it out. rehabilitation would come later. Also, " diabolical music"?! WTF is that?

I like how you write this story almost like a movie, with the scenes shifting (sometimes rapidly) and the succinct imagery, which almost feels like a camera following the actors. I love this story!

I love how this story is going. Please keep up the exellent work.
Have you ever considered professional writing?

By the way, thank you for putting in the 'Pet Peeves' part. You have managed to put into words what I have been dying to say but never found a way of expressing.
I really am not in a position to comment about the one concerning chapter titles, though.
On all but one of my multi-chapter stories (I'm more into poetry and companion groups of one-shots) I've managed to label about half of the chapters then been absolutly unable to think of anything that would fit! Really, sometimes I think that inventing and writing chapter titles is harder than the story itself!

Peace be with you,

You owe me a mouse.

It has been pretty good so far, but you got one thing wrong that I can think of. In Painful Recovering , you said that the last time Harry visited his vault was the summer before his second year. Actually, the last time he visited his vault was the summer before his third year, after he ran away from the Dursleys.
