Harry arrives at Hogwarts. Excitement levels rising.
(#) siledubhghlase 2010-07-19 04:35:40 PMHi again, Leo...
Excellent chapter. Harry's already got Dumbles on the run. LOL As you can see, I'm not a Dumbledore fan, really.
Malfoy just doesn't get it, does he? I wonder if Harry's chiding is going to convince the little dork that he IS gay after all...if not entirely STUPID!
Okay...you used "whom" three times and all three times it should have been "who." Don't worry. It just takes practice. Also...no 's' on the end of toward, forward, backward, afterward, way (except as a plural), or for Merlin's sake, ANYWAY. Sigh. Now that I've got that off my chest. LOL
That said...I must again assert that your story is perfectly engaging. I'm truly enjoying reading about Harry making good friends and standing up for himself...and them as well. He really needs to teach Neville that summoning charm.
I have also read "Harry Potter and the Sword of Gryffindor" and I laughed my rear-end off through the whole thing! It really is hilarious! I kind of guessed you might have had that tale in mind when your Godric Gryffindor said what he said. Nice one!
Keep up with your McStory. I'M LOVIN' IT!
- Heh, I thought this was a fascinating introduction of Harry to Hogwarts, on all sides. I quite suspect that Dumbledore is not going to appreciate the independent, capable, and knowledgeable Harry he's faced with. I rather suspect that situation, combined with lack of access to harry's rooms, is going to severely annoy him. Somehow i reckon taht's just the start of his problems.
I like the way that Hermione, Susan, and Daphne have identified with him in their common dream. i suspect Susan and Daphne will be approaching him reasonably quickly under the circumstances. 'twill be quite interesting to see where that leads.
- I stand impressed. This story is vibrant, vivid and occasionally funny as hell. I'm looking forward to the next installment. When i read about Daphne, and later of the Gryffindor portrait, a scene jumped into my mind. Harry is returning to his quarters, to find Daphne and Godric engaged in a contest to make the other one blush. Wouldn't that be a good introduction? Anyway, your story, your schedule and my continued amusement. Keep at it!
Author's responseI already worked out how I want Daphne to arrive, but I could implement that suggestion if I tweak my own idea somewhat...
(#) teachergirl 2010-07-26 06:15:40 PMDid you mean to make Harry so arrogant? He acts more like Malfoy than Malfoy does by demanding separate quarters because he's the head of two houses. I don't find Harry very likeable anymore.
Author's responsehe'll calm down a bit soon. I'm sorry I made that impression on you.
