Review of chapter "Snap!" from AbscondingCascade
Review:
The Knights of Byzantium have clerics who were called to bring down the barrier that Willow raised to stop them entering the petrol(gas) station. Maybe they have knowledge and the resources to train Harry to use his magic wandlessly ...

Anyway, a great start to what looks to be an interesting story. In thanks for this chapter - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxOoapCsD1w
Comments from author:
I thought about that, and yeah, there will be a little of that. There will be some other things as well.

Thanks for reading and the music.

Review of chapter "Snap!" from Selias
Review:
HO-LEE-SHIT. This just might be my new favorite fanfic. This is a FANTASTIC idea! Is Harry going to wear the classic robe and floppy hat when he starts learning wandless magic to "get in the right mood?" I can't wait for your next update!
Comments from author:
While the Gandalf persona is a good one, it won't work for this Harry. I think he's much more likely to wear Lincoln Green and keep his hood up. He's going to be somewhat similar to the Harry we know, but different.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Snap!" from TurquoiseGirl
Review:
Very interesting chapter. I think my favorite part was when Ron and Hermione had that confrontation in Gryffindor tower. I completely agree that super!Harry and Weasley bashing is over done and lame. Harry buying up the vital Hogwarts parts of Diagon Alley was a great idea. I am a fan of LARP, though I've never done it before. You are really onto something here. It's wonderful to see something new. Well, happy writing!
Comments from author:
I really saw Hermione and Ron stepping up to the plate when not protected by Harry's presence. They're both strong in their own right, Hermione more so in my opinion, Ron can be quite a prat at times, so I wanted them to lead at Hogwarts.

LARP has as many variations as there are clouds in the sky. Anything from American Civil War reinactment to pretending to be vampires or werewolves to fighting each other with live steel and armor when trying to take down the "orcs" on the other side of a plywood "battlement." If you're with a good group it can be great, incredible even. But you have to have the right group.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Snap!" from Shezzi
Review:
I'll admit, I hesitated. I don't know, something about the title made me pause. But I came in, read it, and love it. As everyone has been telling you, it's a refreshing draft of water after all the thick mud that we have been swallowing for so long - the over-trodden ground. Glad to hear you're not going there. Looking forward to seeing where this does go. I too was misled by the 'rattan' clue, but love the idea of them being the K. of B. Can't wait to see how all of this turns out! Thanks for sharing, love xx Shezzi
Comments from author:
Well, I figured that there must have been a time when the Knights learned their skills, so I figured this was a possible way of doing that. And really, you can't always practice with live steel in a public park. I'll try to keep it fresh as possble.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Snap!" from Waverly
Review:
That was awesome!
Your characterization of Hermione was perfect, and while the start was a little shaky, that ending was fantastic! I never would have guessed in a million years where this was going. I can't wait to see what happens next! (Though no matter how much Harry is embittered by his experiences and enjoys his new life, I can't see him trying to kill Dawn. The Scoobies, maybe, but not Dawn, she can't help what she is, and unlike the other knights, I think he'd make that distinction.)
Anyway, I'm really loving this. Whoah, not at all what I was expecting.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I worked pretty hard to get the characterization right for the most part. I agree that the beginning was a bit shaky. I tried to straighten it up a bit, but it didn't work all the way.

On Dawn, I'm not talking. Not at all.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Snap!" from SFBKludge
Review:
Nice start looks to be semi new at the least and if you stick with your posted rules it should go fairly well w/o a big bomb showing up killing your plot.
Comments from author:
Thanks, and what I've got written has kept pretty closely to my rules, even if I skirt pretty close to a few at times.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Snap!" from trongod
Review:
This was excellent! New twist in the stories; liked the slow change of Harry's attitude as time passed. Him finding the re creationists and their activities is new, hope to see more on this ASAP and your Muses provide.

One of the things that did occur to me is that with Hermione's new attitude, she's going to be a major target for Umbridge fast - and I wouldn't doubt that a pre arranged attack leaving her raped, broken, and partially mind wiped would be one of the first things occurring to the scum bags. And with Dumbledore's typical, gutless behavior, nothing would be done to even investigate the attack. HOPING that she and a bunch of others - even some teachers ought to be sick of the crap by now!! - have the brains to move n packs, ready for attacks...

Also wondering about the further consequences of Harry's economic warfare. Seems to me that a lot of the Pureblood wealth has come from the shops, whether as part of an investment, coersion, or whatever, so they should start to feel th bite fairly soon after school starts - say, around Christmas or so...
Comments from author:
I'm glad you liked it. Hermione will start butting heads with the Toad, but it won't be as bad as you say. Umbridge is going to feel more arrogant since they just "won" against Harry, so she won't resort to such a thing. Besides such a thing could be traced back to her, so she'd be cruel in other ways.

I'm doing Dumbledore a bit different from how many have portrayed him. I hope people like him.

Random closings might just shake Diagon Alley up just enough to get things going.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Snap!" from DesitaniaF
Review:
It's interesting. I think that it was a shame the Knights were against Buffy, since they could have made good allies. I like that he's learning archery. he should also learn the quarterstaff, I think.
Comments from author:
Good suggestion. He'll need it if he ever wants to fight the guy on the other side of the stream. Hagrid as Little John?

Review of chapter "Snap!" from twlight
Review:
Having Harry buy out the stores in the ally then raising the rent is wonderful. I have read a few stories where Harry didn't win his hearing but none where his friends stuck by him as they are in this. I have to say that I am wondering about the backlash of Harry doing what he did to the students who couldn't get school supplies and how the ministry also reacts. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment to this so far wonderful story.
Comments from author:
Admittedly, that was one of the reasons I wrote this. Having Harry be expelled holds so much possibility, but it's rarely used and when I did see it used, there was this sudden irational betrayal of him. I didn't want to go that way. Things will change and morph.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Snap!" from DHX
Review:
as long as you don't spring H/Hr on us, i'll keep reading

BTW(H/Hr) is just as contrived and overdone as the H/Weasely pairing that you want to avoid.
Comments from author:
Meh. It'll go where it goes.

Thanks for reading!
