Review of chapter "Owls and Kneazles" from FireWolfe
Review:
I can see the parnets being upset with Sirius however in fairness I am not sure doggie Sirius/Blackie had a lot of choice in the matter. I mean would he willingly let his fur be turned pink? Plus they all chose to give the doggie a bath lol. Poor old doggie lol. He had to act the part lol. More soon Please this is fun to read.

Comments from author:
He didn't much. As a dog he couldn't really get out of it unless he got cranky. (And part of him was loving the attention after years in Azkaban.)

That does not mean that the parents of the children are willing to be reasonable about it...

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review:
someones ben a bad doggie. its nice to see Hagrid showing some of what he hides. great chapter, thanks
Comments from author:
Indeed, though it certainly wasn't all by choice. Hagrid still will be willing to buy stuff of off guys he 'met inna pub', but he also has one of the biggest hearts in the HP stories.

Review of chapter "The curious incident of the dog in the night-time" from AllenPitt
Review:
I can't blame the parents on the Sirius Black/dog/their daughters thing, it's entirely understandable. That whole "10 years in Azkaban" thing might go far towards mitigating, i.e. he's already been punished beyond anything they could do to him. Still, it's going to be a problem for him, yep. That whole "otherwise they'd have dragged him back to Azkaban" excuse probably won't help him much.
Hm, Granger relatives with magic, I get the feeling that'll 'connect' to some magical family in the US. Anything is possible from the Charmed Ones on down.
And Dumbledore has found (or ok, been shown) the locket, that's one horcrux accounted for. And now, no need for him to drink from that fountain, how sly, I see what you did there. Not to mention Sirius will find out that his brother turned against the Death Eaters at the end. Poor Walpurga (or her portrait) can finally find out what happened to R.
Comments from author:
No, they're quite legitimately upset. Happily for Sirius all the girls in the Prefects' Bathroom were drerssed...

Well Jones relatives with magic. ;-) The Jones family tree is the next one I'll be working on. (Currently the Johnson-Warren one)

Yes, there seems to be some slight alteration to canon here.

Walburga will be told her darling boy decided to betray Riddle. And died. Wonder how she will react to that.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The curious incident of the dog in the night-time" from Sunhawk
Review:
I guess it's going to be 'blame Marauders' even though Sirius was dragged into said bathroom by the girls themselves and, looking back, seriously (no pun intended) did everything he could to get loose as they tied ribbons and bows in his fur. I've said it before, it's obvious you dislike Gryffindor and especially the Marauders and refuse to accept that in canon Snape was the original instigator of the great Snape-Marauders rivalry (read the flashbacks, James and Sirius were polite to him on the train and treated him as a potential friend until he called them brainless morons for wanting to be in Gryffindor, it was only then that James dubbed him Snivelous)

I do enjoy the writing, but the constant bashing on the whole of Gryffindor is getting very predictable. In any situation we know from the start, Slytherin, Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff will be right and Gryffindor will be idiots.
Comments from author:
I would like to point out that this is an alternate version. I would also like to point out that what the reader knows is not what the parents know.

The Gryffindors fight Riddle, yes. That does not make them without fault. I 'm sorry, but dumping a child of barely a year and a half on doorstep and never checking on him for the next ten years is neither humane nor good planning.

They are heroes, but they are flawed. For instance, Dumbledore became the headmaster around 1956, he knew the school as it was had produced worrying individuals like Riddle. He was greatly admired for defeating Grindelwald, he had the ear of the ministers and the wizengamot Why didn't he change things at Hogwarts, partially desegregate the houses? Get a decent Muggle Studies teacher? (Or for that matter, a History of magic one?)

Lupin did not tell anyone Sirius Black was an Animagus, despite the fact that all the evidence he had pointed to the fact that Sirius betrayed his best friend and his wife and that apparently while credible threats were aimed at Harry. This, to say the least, is worrying behaviour.

I do not have access to the books right now, but I'm sure someone else will be willing to look up the conversation and reproduce it. From memory I thought the honours were about even. Exactly the sort of spat that leads to a childhood rivalry, in this case made worse by the presence of magic, prejudice and the really perverted House system.


For the record: I do not think the canon Slytherins are good guys. I do not think that the Gryffindors are evil or malicious. (Stupid and often reckless, yes. Evil, no) I think Snape is a bastard, a horrible teacher and fundamentally unfair and dangerously obsessive. That despite all this he still fights on the side of good to the extent he does is about his only redeeming feature.

I used Rowling's ideas for my own purposes and in this case that means that essentially the characters we're changed to accommodate the needs of my story. The problem is that HP has enough glaring plotholes that it might be used as a fishing net. This has to do with the target audience.

The HP arc in this series was inspired by two things: the Kendall name in Buffy and the Mal Foi name in HP. I have written (not published) some very dark Snape stories. And some (which have been published) where Lucius is the same sort of scum as in canon.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Moony Smells a Rat" from AllenPitt
Review:
Things seem to be finally turning up for Sirius. It'd be great if Worm. does get caught & exposed. Nice to see Mrs. Norris improving (plus backstory on her). Dumbledore is going to have some soul searching to do --Sirius never got a trial or even a hearing.
Comments from author:
Wormtail had better start running. Hogwarts greatest mouser is back on her game and looking for a challenge...

Dumbledore wasn't the only one who dropped the ball there, but he will blame himself, yes.

Review of chapter "Moony Smells a Rat" from spikesplayfulpet
Review:
Such a great chapter :) Its funny because I have been rereading the whole series again while awaiting an update on Lonley Souls and I just finished the end of this one and you updated :) The punishment for both Luna and Myrtle I think was justified at least in the sense that it will make them both think before they go off and do something so careless again, even though Luna did make Wolf's Balm in the end. It was nice to see that Mrs. Norris was being treated like the royalty that she is and that she is back to being a nice cat. The way that Remus found out that Peter is actually alive was a nice tie in with all the kids. The scenes with Remus and Sirus were funny and it was great to see them getting along. I can't wait to see if Peter gets what is coming to him. Keep up the great work and the great writing.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Well, that was timely. Then again, re-reading the whole series… That would take some time.

Luna and Myrtle could have gotten a much worse punishment, and this will make them think.

Mrs Norris is a Queen among cats. ;-) All must pay homage!

Remus and Sirius will have some problems to work through. Sirius and Severus… that will be the challenge.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Moony Smells a Rat" from Eureka
Review:
Thanks for the shout out Vid.
Just so you know, I only req my favorite stories.

So Wo..Scabbers has been noticed is NOT what/who they think he/it is, and the kiddos have been told not to say a word about it and a tracking charm has been placed on them all. Padfoot has been congradulated and warned about loosing something he "needs" for going where he shouldn't be by the parents...LOL
Loving the whole thing.
Comments from author:
I find it no more than polite to do so. Glad you like them. Yes, the situation is rather different from canon, but then Harry really had no adults he could trust there.

That does not mean that the danger is over by any means…

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Moony Smells a Rat" from bookworm
Review:
Oh, well done indeed! Let's hope this way the staff can take care of things without Peter getting wind of it...and prove it to the Ministry properly too!
Comments from author:
That would be a very nice solution. But this is Hogwarts, and sense is not something that is part of he make-up of Harry and Ron…

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Moony Smells a Rat" from Salric
Review:
You know, I've never seen that particular sequence for Remus discovering Peter. I've seen him see the newspaper article, but I've never seen him be approached after Scabbers disappears.
Comments from author:
Neither had I, but it’s always nice to hear it confirmed. Then again, I’ve not read that much HP fanfic that I can call myself an expert.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Payback's a bitch" from DofEire
Review:
I do love how you write Dumbledore. The comment about Dawn made me snicker rather loudly.
Comments from author:
I fear I’m confused, is Dawn mentioned in this chapter? Or was it in an earlier one?

I find I must write Dumbledore differently than canon. Or I’ll kill him…
Thanks for reviewing

Yup, let's hear it for Humongous Gazongas!
