Like Some Song You Can't Unlearn

(#) Geovanni_Luciano 2007-07-09

This was an interesting lesson. I have to say that I like it but at the same point you're holding back, a little. I'd have to go back and see how it all started but at the same time I see that your Odd Harris is becoming more and more human himself. Realizing that he is holding grudges against people he doesn't know or don't exist in this world, at least not as the did in the one that he came from, is absolutely fruitless, however, he would have to be blind not to react to people whom have a given track record that is proved consistent, such as Hermione, Ron, Luna, Sirius, and even Snape. Luna maybe shouldn't be clumped in with the rest because you've got other factors in the telling of her story that don't get explained in the prior universe or even Canon.

I loved what you did with Ginny in this one and have to ask whether or not a trip to the Chamber of Secrets to secure a Basilisk Fang will be in order.

The interaction with Minerva was somewhat expected . Initially I felt that it would have been a bit more angry, but again, or should I say firstly, you took the mature way of discuss the grievance.

I look forward to what you plan next, and do hope to see a little more of Sirius, James and Lily in your story in the near future.

Holding back? Where, pray tell? I will admit I did try to keep the scenes short so that they fit, this was still the longest chapter to date in the story but I had originally intended to keep the chapters at around 3-4K words and this is double that.

Yes, Harry is starting to come to terms with what he did, here and in the previous world, and learning who he is and who he wants to be. There will be some hurdles to get over but it wouldn't be a story if there weren't.

Yes, we will be returning to the Chamber shortly and I hope you will enjoy the trip.

James and Lily will be key players later in the story but Harry isn't ready to face them yet. I'm sure Sirius will nudge him in that direction though.

Thanks for reading and reviewing, your comments always get me thinking.
