(#) whatareyouevensaying 2009-04-11I have to admit that I cringed horribly throughout the Gringotts scene (mostly because it's almost impossible for anyone to write an interesting "Heir of the Founders" story anymore), but the rest was very good. I like your unique perspectives on werewolves, though it does make me wonder how it became identified as a curse in the first place. Biting adults, perhaps? I wonder how you'll handle Remus...
Looking forward to more.
(#) whatareyouevensaying 2009-04-11Goddamn internet deleted my review...oh well, here we go again:
I have to admit that I cringed throughout the Gringotts scene, mostly because Harry being the Heir of one or more of the Founders is horribly overdone, and there's little (if any) original material to work with there. Still, the rest was quite good, and I like your take on werewolves, even if it does make me wonder how lycanthropy was ever defined as a curse...biting adults, maybe? I also have to wonder how you'll handle Remus...
Looking forward to more.
- An interesting first chapter and one that I'm glad I've read (thanks Red for the rec).
Lav being sorted into Ravenclaw with Harry was a surprise, and suggests that she may be a friend or maybe a future girlfriend. If so, excellent! I've been looking for a good Harry & Lavender story for a while.
Then again, if he's an alpha wolf, he'll probably form his own harem- I mean, pack. Oh well, something that probably won't even be an issue for a couple of years at least. It's almost a shame about the 11 year old age limit for turning wizards. It suggests that he can't turn any of his friends so that they can gain the same benefits that he has.
I'm also curious about Remus. I though he was bitten as a child before going to Hogwarts, yet (in canon at least) transformations weren't optional for him.
Intriguing tale, and I'm looking forward to seeing more.
(#) SomeGuyFawkes 2009-04-12Pretty original, initial idea and nice writing mechanics.
Plenty of clichés started to creep in though: human goblins, crazy lordships, over-adjusted Harry who knows way too much, etc.
This story is good but threatens to spin out like so many "Super Harry" fics do.
Hopefully Harry will have to: learn, grow, overcome setbacks and avoid unrealistic power-ups.
- Interesting first chapter! Written well, easy to read.
I'm surprised that you made Fenrir a 'good guy' and that you've removed all the problems of being a werewolf from Harry. I guess that's in line with his becoming extra powerful and gaining his titles; this is going to be a 'super!Harry' story I gather. :-)
I didn't like Lavender's being put into Ravenclaw without a reason for the canon being changed. Or did Harry say something good about that house in the train that I missed?
