- Thank you for sticking around. DH was a profound disappointment, so fandom is my only hope for satisfaction.
I'm always glad when someone adult steps in to give Harry a hand in growing into his powers. I was (and still am) very fond of your stories that included the 'Old Believers'. I found the concept fascinating and would welcome more, especially with Harry taking an interest in the faith.
As to this story, I must say it grabbed my interest and I will follow it closely. Any hope of it NOT being a Hermione-ship? I just don't like her for Harry that much. As for Ron, good riddance to bad rubbish.
Thanks again for continuing to contribute to my fanfiction addiction.
Author's responseActually, there. They are only 13 in the story so far (No, I didn't miscalculate Harry's age) so if I ship develops later in the story, it could be Hermione or Luna. Harry won't really be 'super Harry' (very powerful Harry, well trained Harry, but not super Harry), so Hermione will crush on him a little in the story (as opposed to Lockhart), but they might end up even closer friends.
Usually on a longer story, I wait until I have at least 10 draft chapters before posting the first one, but this time I did it with only 3 1/2 (and that took a month). Hence the slower production time. I don't want to paint my self into a corner and have to drop the story later on.
(#) White_Dragon 2007-11-14This is my first real AU story, T. I find it very refreshing. Is it appropriate to call O/C characters O/C in AU? I find them very interesting and I am comfortable with them already.
What attracted me to this story is my strong feelings about how Harry has been abused in his life.
I look forward to future chapters, and to reading other stories of yours in the future!
Author's responseHarry's abuse, and the over-all lack of guidence in his life, have always bothered me, and almost all my many fics reflect that, here and on fiction alley. I tend to supply Harry with mentors, who develop the magic potential we saw in the first 5 books. Of course all my stories, save one, are now considered AU ;-)
- Very good beginning. I STILL don't understand abandoning Harry in the cupboard. I don't think scotland Yard would easily accept that story and understand how he dragged himself home, bleeding and with a fractured skull and didn't leave a long blood trail. I could see them dumping him in a dumpster in Middlesex, and at the same time have Pet call about Harry running away. When Vernon and Duds get back, they were just away looking for the boy.
Author's responseI guess that means you're smarter than the Dursleys
