(#) Wonderbee31 2008-07-31I really liked this, and enjoy the idea of the magical picture that has Hermione's feelings in a way, and honestly can't wait to see what happens when she and Harry meet again, as well as more of the fallout form her and the youngest Weasley's, as I can imagine Ron will be filled to the brim with jealousy, as well as Ginny from her attitude, and can't wait to see what happens next time.
- I love this story! Very original, I like the album idea very much. If Harry is going to be more logical then why not snipe Voldemort? The best military sniper rifle in the world can (barely) hit a target at two miles. It doesnt even need to be that good of a rifle or from that far away. If you take out his physical body, that gives you more time to destroy the Horcruxes before he gets a new body. Or maybe get an uzi from the black market. I'm being serious, if you know that you can't beat him using magic, then try firing a couple of hundred rounds at him rapid fire at point-blank range. Makes perfect sense to me, neither the death eaters or Voldemort would expect or prepare for that. Enough of my rambling, GREAT STORY!!! cant wait for more. ^_^
- I like the start of this and it's a return to the intelligent and determined young witch we saw in th first five books. I'm going to be looking forward to further chapters. It's going to be quite interesting to see what all, and how in depth, Harry's discussed with Hermione's picture and how this'll affect their reunion; it's already obvious that there's going to be significant Weasley conflict here and if -this- Ron does the desertion number, he damn well may not be accepted back.
- Thank you so much for this and your other stories. I won't even go into why DH sucked donky balls, But thanks again for returning Hermiones' brain and personality to her. I just hope that you fix some of the other things too, and if Ron leaves this time let him stay gone he is useless anyway. But i'm really looking foward to seeing Harry and Hermiones reunion and the fit that the youngest weasleys throw when they realise that not only are Harry and Hermione still friends but even better friends than before.
- I enjoyed the first chapter. The magical photo album was a rather interesting gift -- I appreciate that you thought of something original for her to give him.
The idea of this fic intrigues me and I'm looking forward to seeing Hermione get back to her old self.
(#) silverleafhp 2008-08-02Fairly decent start. I do look foreword to reading the next chapter.
However, I would like to point out that this fic does have one of my largest pet peeves involved.
That being Harry angsting about how he wants someone to like him for him and not being the boy who lived. The problem with this is that Harry has never, not even once, in cannon, made an effort to get to know anyone besides Ron and Hermione.
That being the case how in the name of God can any girl get to "know" the real Harry if he doesn't let anyone in to see that Harry?
Please for the love of god explain to me how he can expect someone to want the real Harry when he has never given anyone a chance too?
At any rate, sorry for the rant. And besides that one point the fic is very good.
(#) glrasshopper 2008-08-04Wow, this has been masterfully done. The true meaning of a good AU... change a decision/situation or two but keep the same laws of nature?/plot?/magic? and experience the Butterfly Effect in action.
I wont ever say that any piece of fanfic is better or worse than canon as they are are all stories unto themselves, separate from each other. Aside from that, a great start to what I hope is going to be a great story.
Looking forward to the next chapter.
