    This story was very good, though it's been a long time since the author updated. I wonder what the pairing will be, I have my fingers crossed for Harry/Fleur.

    (Correction) It was updated a few days ago, I have no idea why I never got an Email notification about it. Sorry everyone, my bad! won't happen again.... I hope.

    It updated yesterday, and before that about 4 days prior, and before that it was published on the 5th (chapter 1 and 2 were uploaded on the same day).

    The fic as a whole is 12 days old and has 4 chapters.

    You are a moron. You're also pretty retarded for the Harry/Fleur comment. Fleur hasn't been mentioned at all in the story. What could possibly make you think it's Harry/Fleur?

    Eh, new chapter not as great in my opinion... Fudge taking Harry to Azkaban just for a photo-op? Seems pretty flimsy to me, especially given the reaction Mrs. Fudge has to it... like, isn't the minister supposed to be kind of politically savvy? I just didn't really buy it. I kind of hope the whole situation was a cover up for something else--I mean, why did Fudge just appear in the middle of the field all of a sudden? And what were they doing going to Azkaban in the first place? Crossing my fingers here...

    Intrigued, at the moment.
    4/5, eager for more.

    It was decent enough. A little boring and cliche here and there be very readable 3.5/5

    I enjoyed it. Barely.

    The author seems to subscribe to the "I'll show everything with dialogue." school of thought. There are more " marks than descriptions.

    Atleas the author didn't try to make Harry and Draco all buddy buddy...

    And now Sirius Black is on the loose.

    I'll give it a 3/5, just because we are in the beginning of the story.

    Oh, I like this.

    Original, well-written, appealing to personal likings. This hits all the right spots. I love the premise (Harry growing up in a pureblood-home I can read anytime), even better that it's done in a way that actually makes sense, plus there's the People's Wand, which makes for an interesting plot.

    NW commented on the OC's, but given the job the author has done with Nicole Fudge, I'm actually looking forward to any more OC's that might come. She's by far my favourite character here at the moment. I'm eager to get to know more about her, she had this interesting slip of the tongue, when she told Harry about the killings of the Death Eaters -- and said she had "seen" them do it many times.

    Was she somehow involved? Is that what she means in the last chapter, when she says, "he forgets what I can do, what I have done. They all have."?

    ^


    One thing I'm not quite certain of -- Draco said they would be the first to go to Hogwarts without the "Mudbloods": does that mean Fudge got an legislation through in that regard, and that there will be NO HERMIONE?

    I'd love the author forever. Or, with Sam Cooke, "What a wonderful woooorld this would beeeee ..."

    A fic like that already happened. I don't know if it was posted on fanfiction though. I think it was on patronuscharm.net? If I find the link, then I will definately send it to you.

    As far as the story goes, it is a good read. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a GEM just based on the first few chapters but so far, it looks to be decent. Glad he didn't go for the clichés though. 3.5/5 so far...

    3/5 for me. It has some interesting concepts and shows promise, but right now I can't really get into it and find myself skimming through it.

    Better yet, did you see the part where she says: "None of us knew he had another, but he was a Death Eater...” Well, I guess that settles her part in the first war pretty crearly.
    3.5/5 for me.

    Saw the idea and almost immediatly did not want to bother with it. Then I thought I was maybe being hasty so I glanced over some of the ratings here. It must be pretty damn good. So, I tried it and NAH! Lucius near Fudge, Harry letting anyone in the house who says they are wizards@ Urg.

    But maybe I'll go back when I'm feeling generous... or at least not so friggin tired.

    Well, this updated, after what -- six years? Meh Chapter, most of it being the cliche wand scene with Ollivander. Still, it's good to see Master Slytherin get back to writing.

    This is a really, really interesting premise. The idea of a pro muggleborn terrorist faction is something that really should be done more often given their horrendous treatment, but it sadly is not the case. Given it's been years since the last update I assume MS abandoned this, but I implore MS to reconsider that decision. 5/5.
