    Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2520724/1/

    This is one of the most original Harry-in-training stories I've seen in a long time. Some very original ideas and plot decisions are what seperates this story from the others:

    - It starts after POA (book 3), featuring 13/14 year old Harry and Voldemort who's still plotting his return. VERY GOOD decision. More authors should do things like this - HBP is a terrible starting point for fanfiction and GOF and especially OOTP are totally overused (there's just so many ways you can describe Harry grieving for Sirius before it becomes irritating).

    - Harry is being mentored by Ollivander (the wand maker). I don't think anyone's ever done this before, even though the man is obviously very knowledgable and wise. Good idea!

    - Harry/Katie Bell pairing + interaction with less used Gryffindor Quidditch characters (Angelina, Alicia, Lee). Used only few times before. Harry is a standard confused klutz, but that's ok here coz he's only 13/14. Good choise.

    The only downside is lower update rate, but other than that, this story is truly great. Highly recomended.

    This was just updated today. It is enjoyable. I gotta agree it is a brillant starting point, the romance was abit sickening in the latest chapter but its something you can skip over. Overall something to keep an eye out for.

    It's a good story, with like ip82 said excellent starting point and Harry-in-training. Only problem is its slow moving basically doing the same thing for 4 chapters where he runs back and forth between Durzkaban and Ollivanders, if anything it needs some action to happen.

    Actually the title is referring to the effects of the time turner that gave him images of the future which started him on this path to begin with.

    My only problem is that this author has a tendancy at times to vaguley described something interesting, then totally gloss over it. Annoying, but it does not detract from that fact that this is fairly original, I've never seen good old Oli' mentoring Harry.

    I'd give it a A-, it's a must read, hopefully it'll be updated quickly.

    I'll be following this one. It's one of the better stories I've seen in a long time. I like the fact that Olivander is used as a mentor for Harry rather than the more commonly used people. I don't think I have ever seen the magic not being detected in a pensieve thing used before either.

    Actually now that I think about it I recall a pensieve being used in a story by Omagic or something, an interactive penseive that Sirius created. Not seen that story in a long time though and I don't think I ever finished reading it.

    Overall I would recommend this fic.

    This was a good change from all the post Ootp and HBP stories. There are few stories around that start after the third book. It also has original solutions to Harrys need to practice magic, instead of the over used solution of buying a new wand in Knockturn Alley or removing the tracking spells from his original wand. Also one thing I like about it is that Harry does not blame his bad grades on the Durseys, in many stories so does Harry have bad grades because the Durseys have beaten him if he gets better grades then dudley so it is nice to see a story were harry freely admits that he has been lazy.
