Harry escapes the summer before his fifth year, and comes back with a different attitude.

Good to see more from you. I'll have to track this.
Author's responseIt's more Harry's new attitude; plus Harry becomes a fan.
It was more the 'Good, the Bad, and the Malfoy' in any event
- Great beginning! Can't wait to see where this goes. My beiggest hope for it, beyond the obvious one of taking down Bumbledork, is that he and his allies finally get Sirius free of both the Ministry's and Dumbles control so that Harry never has to answer to the MOB again. Hurry with more!
(If for no other reason than the damned theme song from the movie won't stop playing in a loop in my head. I've always hated all that whistleing.)
- hmmm - I have mixed feelings about this now. On the one hand , I initially thought Harry might have evades the people monitoring him by himself, and wondered how he might be able to actually hide out in muggle or magical world without assistance. I really wanted to have a go at reading about that - struggling to hide out and evade the authorities and also persue magical studies - and where and how.
But was disappointed that didn't happen.
I have to admitt, when Ron's letter was taken, I felt my skin crawl. It was simply a little overreaction on Molly's part. Sirius and others confronting Dumbles was good, but I thought Sirius was a little too nice. I thought in that situation he would try to humiliate Dumbles more than actually work to get the other letters.
It's a great start to a fic, but usually your fics start with a bit more bang, less mystery. This time it's more mystery and slightly less action. I hope that improves soon.
(#) mathiasgranger 2009-04-11 02:54:39 PMGiven Sirius' and Remus' ages when Harry was born, resenting time his parents spent with him seems...err rather pathetic.
I can see a 12 year old resenting that time, but two men around 20 years old? That seems a bit weak from my perspective.
However, it is a new take on the Marauders post Hogwarts that I can appreciate to a degree.
Looking forward to your next chapter.
Thanks for writing,
