Review of chapter "Kuh-thwip!" from Oxnate
Review:
"Harry bent down, strung the bow and drew an arrow, all in the same motion." ... stringing a bow is not usually an easy process. At least not on bows with enough draw weight to do some damage.

After that, the fight scene was excellent. Incredible, even.

Loved the idea of turning Hogwarts against Umbridge. Very funny.
Comments from author:
No, stringing a bow is NOT easy. I put that in as a bit to show how much Harry practiced. He put as much into his archery as he did flying or more even. It's also a bit of foreshadowing. I'll leave that for later.

I'm glad you liked the fightscene. It took me a long time to get it the way I wanted it.

And in my opinion, Hogwart should ALWAYS be against Umbridge.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Kuh-thwip!" from Gideon
Review:
Well done Harry! Taking out a bunch of dementors and some Aurors without even a wand :) Plus he gets a whole herd of cool magical horses. None of which makes up for the fact that the last of his new friends are now dead :(
I'm glad Hermione has found a worthy successor to her prefectship. Good old Darth Vader!
Comments from author:
He's not yet had time to deal with the loss of his friends. That should be in upcoming chapters. Tonks and Sirius will be dealing with the same.

As for Hermione... I agree that she left Hogwarts in good hands. Well, "good" is a bit subjective, I suppose.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Kuh-thwip!" from (Current Donor)Sithspit
Review:
Ok, that entire bit with Hogwarts removing points from "the Ministry" and giving points and detentions...IN DARTH VADER'S VOICE...is GENIUS!

PURE. CONCENTRATED. GENIUS.

So when will Harry enter the BtVS continuum?
Comments from author:
He already has. Just very lightly.

Review of chapter "Kuh-thwip!" from misterwhy
Review:
When will Willow or Xander enter your story? Willow is great at wandless magic and Xander is good at prophecy breaking and right now Harry will need allies outside of the normal channels he is used to.
The Scooby Team would definitely be welcome.
BTW, is this before or after the Glory incident? If the Knights of Byzantium are wiped out, then what is the status of Dawn?
It is understandable that Harry will be lagging behind wand wizards and is living in interesting times. He is quite innovative and the rest of the Wizarding World will underestimate him...to their detriment, I'm sure.
At some point Harry's actions should expose him to the Watcher's Council, what do you think?
Thank you for a great story so far. I love your story so far.
Comments from author:
This is pre-Glory, specifically Season 4 as Glory is looking for the Key, but has not yet found the Monks of Dagon. You could almost call it "before the Dawn."

The moderate Knights were wiped out, not the fanatics under Gregor. Those were the ones who showed up in Season 5 of Buffy.

I don't know that Harry will encounter the Watcher's very soon. It should be a while. Harry will be lagging behind in some aspects of magic, but not always. He's working on his own spells for use without wands and will have some advantages there. Much more flexibility.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Kuh-thwip!" from Rorschach
Review:
good to see you back squirrel
Comments from author:
Yep. I'm alive! ALIVE! *Cue dramatic lightning in the background*

Actually, this was mostly done a while ago, it was delayed by both me slacking and editing.

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "Kuh-thwip!" from (Recent Donor)Manchester
Review:
“I find your lack of faith in Hogwarts...disturbing,” the ominous voice spoke.

This whole story is worth it just for that line alone.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you liked it! It took me a while to get that scene right and I think I hit it in the final version.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Ugh..." from (Recent Donor)Hawklan
Review:
a shame Marion and the General are death and now Harry is in deep trouble.........
Comments from author:
Yep, quite troublesome for him. I thought about delaying the massacre, but realized doing it later wasn't any better than doing it immediately, so I decided to get it out of the way.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Ugh..." from meteoricshipyards
Review:
Ugh? ARRRG! You can't leave a cliffhanger! That's evil. You don't want to be known as an evil writer do you?

Except for the evil cliffie, this has been a great story. "For important things, we use puppets." You are twisted :-)

Thanks for the story.

Looking forward to Harry getting away from the dementors, as well as wondering what he'll do with the horses, and if he's going to find more of the knights of byzantium. I do hope the knights were able to take out some wizards before they were all killed.

Comments from author:
Well, it had to happen eventually. Actually, come to think of it MOST of my unfinished stories landed on cliffhangers. I should probably fix that.

And I don't think of myself as evil, more a Chaotic Neutral. I don't go out to intentionally hurt people with cliffhangers, I just don't really worry about the consequences of doing so.

Harry will get away from the dementors. It might take a little time, but he'll escape. As for the rest, well, you'll have to wait and read.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Ugh..." from Ratus
Review:
A very nice story, I look forward to more of the story. As I never watched Buffy I had to go do a little cross referencing to understand who and what the Knights are, and I can say that I like the idea and the cross over.
Comments from author:
I recommend watching Buffy. It's a good show with some great characters and development along the way. You used to be able to find it streaming on hulu, but I don't know if that's still true.

I'm glad you've enjoyed the story thus far. Things will change up a bit from here on out, and a little more Buffy knowledge would help. The story will keep rolling on.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Ugh..." from physicsteach
Review:
Holy crap - I have to say I'm really impressed with this chapter. I'd wondered while reading the first part of the chapter if you had just included the Knights of Byzantium as a way to make this story count as a cross-over without really doing much with them. Whoa boy! This is one of those times I'm delighted to be wrong.

I really, really like how you wrote Hermione and Ginny dealing with what the twins did to Hermione and Harry. Fantastic writing. How you managed to show the complexity of the situation, Hermione understanding that the twins really didn't understand how wrong what they did was, and that the nightmares featured Harry even though Hermione knew perfectly well Harry wasn't at fault, along with Ginny's and Molly's - and even the twins' - reactions being pitch-perfect. Dude, kudos are not enough.

Then the next part of the chapter was . . . dark. Well-written, lets the reader know there's a solid crossover in the works, and we've got a really complex, layered story with really well-written characters who are dealing with nasty situations that feel canon-ish.

Thank you.
Comments from author:
It was always going to be a crossover, just slightly different from most HP/Buffy crosses, especially my others. I just didn't want to just jump in, instead going a bit slow to build up the situation.

I really wanted to get the scene with Hermione and the Twins right. I was frankly horrified by what they taught to children in the books and didn't include any self-responsibility, seeming to either let the kids figure it out for themselves or expect someone else to teach them. Hogwarts really needs a mandatory ethics class. It was cultural, which is why I wanted to show it the way I did. It was serious enough of a situation that I felt I needed to do it right. It wasn't easy.

The second part was dark. Not a happy bit in sight.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Ugh..." from mariposa
Review:
Great story. When I saw the new chapter, I decided to reread it all to refresh my memory.
I think the way you handled the snog cakes was brilliant - in canon it struck me that the twins never really thought about the potential for serious misuse of their products (darkness powder anyone; or that the shield hats they sold in the store could be bought by death eaters). Great job.
Comments from author:
Well, responsibility for one's actions doesn't seem to be one of the primary traits of the Wizarding World. This seems to go far beyond just the Twins, extending to Fudge's head in the sand and Snape being allowed around children. Just look at Draco "Wait 'til my father hears about this" Malfoy, he's pretty much the perfect example of no personal responsibility.

I'm glad you liked it, and thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Ugh..." from mwinter
Review:
Awaiting more. I do wonder how Voldemort found out about them. You haven't mentioned a dream that Harry had so the only way would have ben Snape from what I can tell.
Comments from author:
As for how, well, you'll have to wait and see.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!
