Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from ReflectionsOfReality
I remember reading a story where Jack remembered locking up the gun and bullets securely where Charlie could not get. It was only revealed later that it was a bit of accidental magic that got them for Charlie. Magic works well for wants and desires or protection when its possessor is able to tell that something wrong is about to happen. Bullets that can travel faster than the brain can register a sound particularly if death is instantaneous not a chance particularly if the magic was already exhausted from getting the gun in the first place.

I like your writing style and I hope that you post some additional chapters for your stories quickly,

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from shawnie
If the Ancient gene is also the one for magic, then Harry and Snape have it as well...

I really hope you decide to continue this fic.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from CrystalBlaze
The Ancient gene being the magic? I like that concept. It makes sense, too, as Merlin, the Ancient, could well have taught those with the Ancient gene something else to do with it...
Comments from author:
Yeah, that was pretty much my thought too. Even the Norse gods seemed to have magical properties of their own, so it might not be just Ancients. I'm trying to figure if that will play a big part of this story. Glad you've liked it so far!

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from liferscove
I love your work. This is a great start and I'm looking forward to more.
I mean we haven't even gotten to Snape's son yet. What? I'm a little giddy with anticipation.

*now steps onto a soap box*

People are being dumb enough to complain? seriously?

Am I the only one that thinks: if you don't like a story you should just stop reading it.
I've been reading fic for years and I realize just cause I don't like a story
(this is in no way including your story I'm really looking forward to the next chapter )
doesn't mean somebody else isn't loving that same story. Though to be truthful the only thing
That usually makes me stop reading a story is usually grammar so bad
I can't even puzzle out what they are trying to say.
Continued reiteration that I am in no way talking about your fic.
I've just read some pretty big glaring mistakes in the last couple months that made me want to
*head desk*.

*steps off her soap box*

again great update and you have just made my tracking list.
Comments from author:
Thank you, thank you! Feel free to soap box all you like - poor grammar and spelling is one of my big pet peeves as well. Specifically your/you're, then/than, its/it's, prostate/prostrate, etc... even when the results are funny as hell, it ruins the flow of the story. My habit (because I don't have daily internet) is to cut-n-paste story updates and read at leisure, but when over half my reading time is spent correcting the writer? No love!

Anyways, I've got most of the next two chapters written, but have been shuffling the order of scenes around. They just don't want to play nice. Or else - more likely - I need better lead-ins for them.

As to people complaining... most of it was about the possibility of slash later (will be posted in a different story heading, so why bitch?), or that Harry always seems whiny (which, in many fanfics, is sadly too true). I just figured that he deserved a good cry *this one time*. LoL!

Remember: I thoroughly enjoy other people's rants, soap boxes, or just lengthy reviews. It makes me feel like I have a social life *snicker* Say what you will, and be warned that I WILL reply, usually at the same length. Big hugs for making me smile, by the way.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from LNR

LOVE IT!!!!!

More please! This chapter totally rocked!
Comments from author:
Wow, I'm so pleased that you liked it so much! This one was hard for me to write - I hate weepy!Harry, but he needed to release it all, y'know? Next chapter won't be quite as emotional, gonna try to let him regain some male pride and stiff upper lip *lol*

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from KyrissDraconis
ha! now that you mention it, the Ancient gene could very well be the same or related to the magical gene. Cool thought!
Comments from author:
Thanks, the idea just has so many possibilities!

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from desartrattaz
I agree, the ancient gene and the magical one could logically be the same.
Comments from author:
Thanks! Hope you're enjoying the tale.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from MonkMayfair
I just read Ch 1-3 and have to say I really enjoyed them. Plot, pacing, characterization and story were very well done and polished. I really liked how you tortured Aunt Petunia.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure I'll continue reading this story. I skimmed the author's notes and missed the slash reference. I'm not a fan of slash as I feel it violates an essential element of the established character and the characters are why I read fanfic. Being a hetero male also lowers my interest in such stories.

Please, update your summary to reflect your story content.

Anyhoo, good luck with your writing and Best Wishes.
Comments from author:
Ok, first things first... I'm glad you've liked it so far. The idea of finding lost relatives for my favorite characters always intrigued me. Don't give up though. Second part: I really don't have any plans for slash pairings here. In the unlikely case that they start to develop, I'll probably put that sub-plot into a different story heading and leave the main line with links for those who are interested. *IF* that happens, I'll change the category. I understand your concerns, truly, but it's not as likely as it may seem right now. Whatever you decide to do, thanks for reading so far.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from Tanydwr
Nice work! Looking forward to more.

Just give us fair warning if the slash is going to be less than subtle, alright? I can cope with it in the background and subtle, but if it's overt, I'm not a fan. *shrugs*

Still, love that you've got Hermione and Ron preparing for their wedding and Hermione at uni! Works perfectly for keeping them out of the story in a realistic way.

Just watch some of Harry and Snape's dialogue - Harry would have a mobile phone, not a cell phone; he'd say 'Anyway' not 'Anyways'; and 'batshite crazy' isn't anything I've heard a fellow Brit say. 'Batshit' perhaps, but 'completely bonkers,' 'utterly mad' and 'completely nuts' would be more likely. Or I can definitely see Harry making a 'bats in the belfrey' joke. For more tips on British words and slang, go here:

Keep up the good work, I'm looking forward to more!
Comments from author:
LOL! I'm a born-and-raised Texan. My limited access to British slang is from other TV shows and a couple of friends from Leeds. Since I've heard them both use the terms/phrases, it seemed alright. But I'll definitely check out that link!

Glad you're liking the story so far. And don't worry about slashiness -- if it ever comes into play, I'll put it in a sub-story under a different link so it won't affect this one. Ron and Hermione... well, I have issues with the redhead, and to prevent character bashing it seemed smart to keep him out of the way.

Thanks for chiming in. Love the advice and comments *hug*

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from yrfgd
Nice chapter. Not sure how I feel about the weepy Harry, but I do like the interaction between him and Jack.

I'll have to look back into the first chapters and remind myself about Severus's reasons for being there aside from Harry.
Comments from author:
I'm not a big fan of Harry as an emotional basket case, but in this instance it seems justified. How long has he wanted a family, a blood-related family? Even my macho ex couldn't stand up to a situation like this without getting sniffly. And with Jack being the hugger... he simply exudes comfort, y'know? Don't count on Harry being extra weepy throughout the story, won't happen, but it felt right for this scene. Glad you liked it anyway.
