Harry is not stupid, but what if for once he stopped to think for himself, for just a moment? Dissatisfied with his current situation he resolves to improve it, to hell with anyone who gets in his ...
- The story has a slow buildup which I think is necessary since it looks at so many aspects of cannon in a new way. It's funny, but also rather insightful. Harry having lived with the Dursleys should not be naive. He's seen bad behavior and been treated badly. He shouldn't be expecting all sweetness and light. This gives an explanation for the cannon Harry before book 5 and a rather delightful exploration of Dean and Seamous. Worth a read. Not galloping action, but rather insightful, subtle humor and manipulation of cannon ideas.
Author's responseI do prefer to have short bursts of action which are coming in the chapter after next, probably, as I thought it unlikely Harry would jump from one adventure to the next. I feel I mmust warn you that Seamus and Dean won't be this prominant all through the book, other canon characters will be explored. Thanks for the lovely review :)
- I like the story and hope you will update soon. Found my self smiling quite a lot.
Author's responseI'm very sorry for the late reply but thank you for your review. As you can see it didn't take me too long to update, but that was because the new chapter was quite short. Generally I update shorter chapters on fanfiction.net and double up the chapters on this website. Anyway I'm glad you enjoy my story :)
