- Another interesting beginning and a subtly different Draco. I think that he will be both more arrogant and more capable having not had Narcissa's moderating influence for most of his life.
No doubt the trip up to Hogwarts will be next. Should be interesting if Hermione is able to find Neville's toad more quickly as she will now have the assistanct of with a moderately-capable Harry. :-)

Author's responseYes, if anything I see Draco being more ruthless with this version of Lucius being his sole influence. I've seen some stories where Snape has a role in Draco's life, but I'm still unsettled in that aspect. I need to figure out how Lucius and Snape correlate.
Unfortunately Hermione and Neville will be having much more reduced roles in this universe.. more so Neville. Hermione will still have a place, just not a big role.. a little less than Ron. As will be shown I used the Hogwarts Express as a way for Harry to gain a friendship, much mirroring the way his mum did in this universe.
(#) whatareyouevensaying 2006-09-07Fantastical chapter, as always. You played the dynamics between Bonnie, Harry and Nym really well. I'm eager for Harry to get to Hogwarts, but at the same time I really like his interactions with Bonnie. Either way, I guess.
Author's responseThanks for enjoying the chapter! I think a big thing I'm doing in this story is establishing Nym as a big sister type for Harry. She's able to see things they don't since they're not experienced in life, and she's able to lend her advice. I was glad to be able to pull off, I wanted to cement Bonnie and Harry's closeness. Bonnie will be seen again before the end of first year, that I can guarantee.
