Harry escapes the summer before his fifth year, and comes back with a different attitude.
(#) ZanyMuggle 2009-04-12 09:38:11 AMIt's always good to see one of your stories posted, T. I review to tell you that far too little.
I think the setup is sound and within the bounds of canon for a post-GOF story. As usual, I enjoy your take on the characters. The baby-jealousy is a new wrinkle, but entirely believable for young adults who are still somewhat immature.
Thanks again for starting another story. I look forward to whatever you post.

It'll be interesting to see how e-v-i-l-e Dumbles will be in this one, and who are the other players.

- Excellent start to a very different HP. Looking forward to seeing smoke from Dirty Harry's wand! lol Don't you just love Eastwood! It was a shame Lee Van Cleef would have been both too old to play Snape as well as deceased...he would have the evil attitude and nose! (Not that I don't love Rickman, but I can still picture it!)
- Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Aaaaaaaaaahhhh!
DR. T is back! and he's still got it!
The phone scene was excellent! I'll agree to that; she's not the smartest-witch-of-her-age for nothing. Though, like Harry, I imagine she also hates the hyphenation ;)
Well done sir! I hope to read an update, soon!
- Quite the interesting introduction to what portends to be a fascinating story. I'll admit the title had me looking up some old Sergio Leone theme music though, given the situation, 'twould seem that perhaps "The Outlaw Harry Potter" might be a better title; but that's as may be. It's rather interesting that there are more factions out there than the three we normally think of/know about and that two of them are collaborating to help train Harry. I find it interesting that the party watching Hermione for Dumbles didn't realize the import of that telephone conversation and I'm looking forward to seeing how that comes back to bite some folks. I really don't think Dumbles realizes just how much ill will he's accumulated and I suspect it's going to drive him to distraction as he deals with the consequences this.
I'm very definitely looking forward to following chapters.
