    Wow! Normaly don't read this site, but I'm glade I did.

    This story was realy well written and the characters were great.

    So glade you didn't do the hardened Harry leaps into happy go lucky rich kid.

    Nice to see that all the Harrys have their problems. The loveing parents dealing with a troubled son shows how Jamies can have as much strength of character that he has.

    I can't believe this is your only work. You must be on another site under another name. Keep it up or let me know where I can follow you.

    Author's response

    Hi, thank you for your review. I'm really glad to hear that you like it and find it interesting so far.

    As for this being my only's not. However, it is my only posted work. I've never had the guts to post anything else I've written, but with this story, I felt compelled to, as I was getting tire of the 'norm' for this category of HP and thought maybe someone else was too. I'm actually quite overwhelmed that it has been so well received, but pleased as well.

    I did make a fanfiction account over on (under the same name). I have the story posted there as well, as these are the two sights I've read fanfiction from over the years, so you can follow it here or over there.

    Normally I sit back and let others do the talking, but this story has made me write my first review!

    Especially with the addition of your most recent chapter, I have never read a HP story that's gone in this direction. The perfect melding of magic, power, problems, solutions, and family dynamics.

    I look forward to reading more chapters, and also hope that you might post some of your other stories that you've mentioned.

    Keep up the brilliant work!
