    I thought it was pretty ok... Nothing great, a bit to heavy on the romance for my tastes... But then again, I am much more into the "cerebral-thriller"/"action adventure" type of story.

    Rating on the Giovanni Fanfic Level Scale?

    6.5/10

    Better than average (5), less than great(8.5-9.5)... Or good (7) for that matter.

    It's a pretty good rewrite of book 5. I was almost going to start a Harry/Angelina from GoF, where she was selected as the Hogwarts champion, but it is pretty far back in the plot bunny farm right now.

    The writer does a solid job with the dynamics between Harry and Angelina. It's believable and that always scores well with me. There are some nice twists on book 5 and it has already significantly diverged from book 5. I'll be interested to see where the author goes with it.

    I enjoy this quite a bit, but it's pretty angsty IMO, and Malfy is wayyy too competent in this.

    Still a good read. Author is up to chapter 26. She (I'm pretty sure the author is a she), is allowing Harry to grow and mature a bit as a result of having a steady older girlfriend. This leads to less brooding and whiny Harry and improves the quality of the reading. Its currently up to the Xmas break where Arthur Weasley was attacked and there seems to be more character interaction between Harry and Sirius than in the real book 5, which if the author parallels cannon and kills Sirius would lead to a more credible angsty guilt trip. I find both cannon and fannon Harry's reaction to Sirius's death sometimes a little over the top.

    It seems like you are right. More and more authors are joining. Glad to see the author of this story on this site. I think Harry and Angelina is one of the more daring pairings out there. She's 3 years older than he is and if you want to dig deeper there is the interracial aspect.

    That's the only thing that kind of threw me for a loop in the story, that Draco would have an obsession for Angelina. He has always struck me as the Arrayan type, who wouldn't hesitate to resort to racial slurs if he ran out of slurs about a persons magical heritage. That said, the author pulls it off rather well and believably.

    On a side note, the actress the had play Angelina in GoF was rather pretty, so I could see it intriguing Draco.

    Wait, I'm confused. Did Malfoy rape her or not? In the scene from Malfoy's POV he just rubbed against her then Obliviated her. In this chapter Harry and Angelina were talking like he raped her. If he actually succeeded in raping her then I'm dropping this asap.

    he did not rape her. he tried to kiss her--he probably would have liked to go further, but he's a stupid kid. she kicked him and ran for it. he panicked and Obliviated her.

    Great chapter. Your version of Harry seems more assertive than canon version. And most fanfiction romance is pretty pathetic, but your Harry/Angelina is great. But I wouldn't mind seeing more conflicts and arguments between them though. Maybe expanding on Angelina's fears that Harry isn't good enough for her? Jealousy perhaps?

    Looking forward to the next chapter.

    I like the characterization of Harry in this... And based purely off of the current chapter, I think that there are probably going to be a few upcoming fights between Harry and Angelina.

    I enjoy the story and I look forward to it's next update.

    This story is one of my current favorites, every character is complex and detailed, and the relationships between them are really well done (I particularly enjoy the vibe between Harry and Angelina).

    I think the author should have Draco beaten to death, but I don't see her going that direction so I'll have to trust that she has plans to deal with him appropriately.

    This is one of my favorite stories, I hope that this continues. Doing a great job so far.

    But just a question, will Harry continue to teach the DA more advanced things such as powerful duelling spells and things, because as it stands now (from what I got), he learned what he did for Draco, then stopped. Also, he says in the story that he thinks he would press a DE much harder now, well sure, but he did not wipe the floor with Draco, much less Voldemort. Will be realize this and train a bit mroe, or will it just stay as is?

    Anyway, good story and I hope you keep it up
