    I figure there's at least enough to get an idea of where we're headed now. I just posted "CHAPTER THREE" a few minutes ago despite ff.net alerts seeming to be backlogged.

    I like it. Not much happening, so far, but still fun to read.

    4/5

    I'm not usually a fan of travelling to Alt Dimension stories, but, since it's Nonjon, I expect I'll have a few laughs from this.

    Review to follow.


    This is quite an interesting one. Combines the ideas of Alt. Dimension Harry with Sirius not being dead. Much fun and larking about occurs, or will occur.

    I'm quite happy as well that Harry doesn't turn into a pussy desperately seeking out his parents.

    Overall, with the solid writing style, a few laughs and the hopefully well developed plot, it should be good.

    At the moment, 4/5

    First two chapters weren't that great but still good enough to read. The third chapter was good but the fourth takes the cake. I love how you snubbed the whole Remus and Tonks pairing. It amused me greatly. Ghost-Ginny that Harry seems to dislike was a nice touch, too. Probably the best chapter you've written in a long time.

    Well done.

    I love it so much. I was literally choking on my dinner during Tonks-Lupin relationship episode. Ghost-Ginny was a big hit as well. I can't wait to see where you take this story.

    4.5/5

    My favorite nonjon moment ever was the unveiling of a vehemently Francophobic Luna Lovegood... the Tonks-Lupin reveal was right up there, though. Good stuff.

    While the LOVE SHIELD! was amusing, Ginny is fast destroying my hopes for this fic. Tonks-Lupin was pretty funny, and I especially like the fact that the wizarding worlds lack of common sense was brought to the fore once again.

    “I should have been a bit clearer in that fearing a made-up name is silly, but fearing an extremely powerful ruthless dark wizard is just common sense.”

    My favorite quote though? "
    Do you not fear me?" "No!" "I kind of fear you."

    Oh good chapter! I started reading this fic almost as soon as it came out.

    The dynamic relationship and conversations between the characters makes them real. Its good. Also I love the part where Sirius yells out the word for love in Latin. At least what he thinks the word for love is.:devil:

    The last chapter kicked ass. I have to agree that the Tonks-Lupin situation is fucking hilarious. And while I think Ginny is funny for now, it has enormous potential for becoming tired later on. I absolutely loved the mocking tip of the hat to several cliches floating around the fandom, especially about soul bonds and love shields.

    I give it a 4/5 for now, since the first bits didn't really catch my attention.

    Well I got around to reading it, and I am impressed, you have done a great job so far Nonjon.

    The biggest problem that I see, like others have pointed out is Ginny. Yes she was entertaining the first few scenes she was in, but I don't think that is going to last much longer unless you have some good reason for her to be around.

    I enjoy the way you have gotten Harry's and Sirius' attitudes down, they really are quite entertaining keep up the good work.

    No gang violence from emotionally turbulent young blacks?

    This fails.

    Just kidding. I kinda like it and I did get a few chuckles out of it, especially Ginny's love shield. Well worth my time. 8/10

    Not sure why FF.net decided to crap out on alerts yesterday. I know they were working in the afternoon. But anyways, this is a little bump to inform those curious that I put up a new chapter last night.

    I get the feeling that some will appreciate hearing this is the second chapter in a row without a single mention or sighting of ghostly Ginny. She'll still be popping up on occasion as my few and limited plans for her character remain unaltered, but you can forget about her for now if it makes you happy.

    Strange, though Rorschach's Blot started months before you with his story "Thief", you have already tripled the amount of actual thievery (the chapter 10 scene released tonight FINALLY had then steal something; a painting, from a muggle home, with no alarms...).

    Just thought you should know, you contain far more truth in advertising than your nearest competitor. We got Blacks, and Comedy in every chapter, who'd have thought?

    Loved the new chapter, specially the part at Lupin's work about his promotion.
