Review of chapter "Harry Potter, W.E." from LordSia
Review:
Hah! Yeah, good point. And the "confuse name" thing goes true; I mean, the Taboo is (no matter how much I wish to repress the last two if not three books) canon, and proves that spells of incredible coverage can be cast on something as ephemeral as a name. In most serious magic stories, mages take up fake names to protect themselves from someone using theirs in sympathetic magic, for just that reason. It also gives a better "feel" when everyone runs around in silly, made up names, like "Draco Malfoy" or "Percival Weasley"...

Hilarious! I would love to read more in this universe.

And I would love to write more for this universe, but I can't seem to get passed the basic difficulties, like how can Harry not know three weeks into first year that something is very wrong. At the soonest when they keep spouting the Boy-who-lived crap. I just couldn't seem to match the tone of this piece, so thought I would leave it well enough alone.
Maybe I'll put it out as a challenge, seems to me I was the only one who though of the 'maybe Harry is a nickname for Harriet' thing. And I only thought of it because of the episode where Doyle's ex-wife comes along, who is called Harry.

Review of chapter "Harry Potter, W.E." from hpssslashfan
Review:
ROTFLMAO! Love the Flint comment, it made it perfect! Ohhhh, "HARRINGTON" is a name that can be given to a boy or a girl and it is VERY uber-British style name. Although I think the father was supposed to be welsh?

Is James Welsh? Didn't know that. Also I was thinking Harriet James Potter, the continue with the whole male female naming thing their Muggle History professor has. Although Harrington James Potter has a certain ring to it.

I liked the surprise ending very much! And Marcus' comment was perfect. I also enjoyed the explanation of Wizarding culture. You should do a sequel.

Review of chapter "Harry Potter, W.E." from WolfWriter
Review:
Harry's really a girl?

Wouldn't Petunia have noticed this during a nappy change and referred to our hero/heroine referred to as "Girl", by her husband and son?

Nice premise though.

And how could Harry have not noticed a lack of a set of accoutrement in twelve years? That's pretty much an indication you are not a boy.

Too bad it's only a one shot; I'd have loved to read about Hermione introducing "Women's Lib", the idea of equal rights for EVERYBODY, going braless, and other achievements of the twentieth century to the Wizarding World.
Comments from author:
That's the whole point , I think. Of course Harry knows he's, sorry she's a girl. Granted having boys and girls share a dorm room is unusual, but what does Harry have to compare it to? He has lead a fairly isolated life before that so maybe he just thinks it is one of those idiosyncrasies. On top of that more than once a point is made that the wizarding world knows everything there is to know about the young Harry Potter. Maybe she thought that she had been put with the boys to protect her, maybe there wasn't anymore room in the girl's dorm, who knows.
And I really only had Sirius' one line as an inspiration. I really, really wanted to use that one line. Absolutely desperately. Wouldn't leave me alone.
And oh God your braless line made me snigger. I can just see Hermione prompting the other muggleborns to burn their bras in the front courtyard of Hogwarts. McGonagall would have apoplexy. And I think Snape's head might explode. Draco would probably have a full-on Anime nose-bleed. *sniggers*
Having said that, I tried to write a sequel, or at least a longer version of this and it was turning into a re-write of the Potter books, which is just boring, and like you said there remains the problem of Harry(et) wondering about the wisdom of leaving a girl in the boy's dorms, never mind putting her there in first year. Just didn't work.

Review of chapter "Harry Potter, W.E." from spring
Review:
ROTFLMAO........ Oh this last part is just to funny. Pity Hermione didn't stay in the class she might have learned the WHY's of the things in the wizarding world. Again I love this wonderful story.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. I am glad you enjoyed it. Makes me smile when I read it. I really wanted to explore the concept more, but I just couldn't match the slightly whimsical tone of this piece. Ah well it will just have to stay as an odd one-off.
