- I was re-reading this and something struck me. While doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is one definition of insanity, there's a parallel one of doing things differently and expecting the same result; that's what Tommy-boy initiated here and it's going to burn him big time before this is over. Amusingly, I doubt he'll realize until it's way, way too late just what chain of events he's set in motion.
- It's great to see you back again, and with a story that's as intriguing as usual. Like some others, while I do quite like HHr ships, also applaud movements outside that relationship... besides which, 15 really isn't anywhere near old enough to form a permanent relationship.
I quite like the time-travelling Harry as a plot device, as it offers an excuse for too-adult thinking on his behalf. The hard part is, of course, the characters around him. Hermione is easiest, I think.
Anway, a good start and I look forward to where you plan to take the story... and thanks for sharing your work with us.
- This seems like a good start. I like Harry to be more aware and assertive. Even just a little shift in that direction could make things work out better in the end. This story seems like a substantial shift and that looks like fun as well. I bet Snape will "appreciate" the change. Thanks for writing. W.
(#) hammerhead 2010-04-24Thank you DrT for coming out of what was thought fanfic retirement to grace the the poor peoples of the fanfic underworld with your great writings. I am looking forward to more of this story as soon as you see fit to put it up. Thanks again.
- I love this. You advoided most cliche's and the few you had were very interesting. I liked how honest Harry was with Hermione. I love Hermione, but she can be bossy. I wonder if Harry might help her with that. Also how will this new Harry deal with Ron. This is the year Ron was a real prat to Harry, and I just don't see this Harry be as forgiving as the other would have been.
