    Just in case anyone gets the wrong idea, I am a boy--and Sree is an idiot :p. (Oh, and so is Rain. Both are quite touched in their heads. lol.)

    ok...

    Really love this story so far, as i have said in my reviews. i do hope you have a plan on what's going to happen, even now that you have changed the plot. Because having a plot is always a good thing :)

    Glad to have heard hermione wasn't one of hte muggleborn kidnapped, you had me worried, though i guess most people here would have liked that. Just wondering now, what will be harry s relationship with his old friends? a father figure? great story.

    One reviewer asked me what the orignal author thought about this story, and so I PMed the orignal author, and here's what she wrote: (Sorry, I'm a bit rushed... but I'll reply more thoroughly to arkeus' question later!)

    Well, I think that the direction the story is going in is brilliant. Well thought out, creative, and with proper developing characters!

    I think there are too many stories out there that are totally stereotypical "Harry goes back in time and just grows up again", and if someone wanted the plain stereotype stereotype they can read any of hundreds (possibly thousands) of stories available that basically retells Harry's life with adult thoughts, but without letting anything Harry does influence the future of the story.

    'Young Again: The Rewrite' is taking a totally new spin and Harry and of course the wonderful prof. McGonagall actually INFLUENCE the future and develop realistically (Like any proper story should!) I think the story you have turned it into is one of the best I've read, and thats without favouritism!

    I have read hundreds if not thousands of time travel fics and this is one of the best. Don't let one or two reviewers let you down, they're not worth it. If you go into stats in your profile you can see how many people read it, add it to favourites, what C2's its in, etc. And I' sure you must've seen heaps of the recs it got on fictionalley/park. Most of us love it, do away with the evil pessimists.

    *hugs*
    Abby Jack, bloody pirate.

    PS: Don't stress, I never was worried, from what you've written so far I trust you to write a good story. I love waiting for the next chappie, and then reading back over the story when I get it.

    Wow... Frankly, it seems like the author is much better when it comes to respond than when it comes to writing...i think. A bit like me. As some said, his writing in the original story was a bit awkward, and even went into a harry/ELT (evil little twat) pairing, among other... interesting... choices. Glad to hear you have his approve, though.

    Liked this story very much! I just love a good Minerva. She's usually not given the importance she deserves, she's a tranfiguration mistress after all. :D

    Sorry about the lack of an update...

    My parents enrolled me in a two week intensive SAT I study program that lasts nearly 10 hours every day. Every single day! By the time I get home at about 7 in the evening, I'm absolutely wiped. I'm trying to finish the chapter. Really, I am. But my brain is so dead tired, I just can't seem to write coherently.

    Good news, though: I got 800 on my Math IIC test, so that's cool! ^^

    Saturday is only a half-day morning thing, so I have the afternoon to finish this chapter. I have about 4,000 words written.... Hmm, maybe I should post up what I have somewhere in this site, so you guys can at least have that? I don't know. What do you think? I know JackOfDiamond's (name sp?) put up his draft of the next chapter up, so maybe I should do the same.

    Anyway, I'm a gonner, right now....

    Toodles....

    If you ask me, I'd prefer to wait a bit longer and read a complete chapter, than part by part... but others may want it now... dunno, your call really.

    Actually, I've just looked over what I've written so far, and I realized that it was all absolute rubbish. I obviously wasn't thinking as clearly as I thought I was when I wrote those scenes. I don't think I'll post them. Way~ too embarrassing. Seriously, the scenes are a mess. It'll take me some time on Saturday just to fix up what I've written already. *sigh*

    I mean, look at this: (SPOILER WARNING)

    That's in the middle of what I've written so far, and it's absolute crap. Voldemort would *never* say that. It's too abrupt. And too cliched. And *way* too stupid-sounding.

    Yup. So. *Major* makeover for the chapter is needed..... *sigh*

    Toodles....

    I must admit that voldemort would be too wary to ask that of harry. After all, his "mark" could be taken as marking him. Too bad. Oh well, i still can't wait for the chapter to go out, i hope you do manage to sort it out soon. After all, there is what, fifty chapter now? Grins :p

    Permanently? No.

    But for how long? That is the question. ^^ (Though, definitely longer than weeks...)

    Umm its mark him as his "equal" he cleary 'chose' harry when he marked nevel(i no spelled wrong) so that he could bring harry out and deal with the larger threat.

    He marked harry by marking neville, does this make any sense?

    Lol... I think you'll all see where I'm going with the marking business, once I post the next chapter... *tries to act like I'm not avoiding the subject of when*

    And remember, keep in mind the new Prophecy that Minerva heard in the Headmaster's office. Something like, "Midnight" should strike a bell... especially since the next chapter is titled, "'Tis Midnight."

    Really amazing chapter, and that title, Those Burning Bones, was perhaps one the most omnious ones I've read in a fan fic. And the rest of the chapter lived up to it; or perhaps, i'd say it lived up to the rest of the chapter. Can't wait for an update.

    Ps. Woohoo, I do have Rise of Chaos on my HD. It had ten chaps when it was discontinued, right?

    This is far better than "Rise of Chaos" I want you to know something Liath. I would like an update. I'm actually am quite eager.

    I appreciate your discretion in this matter and trust this information will stay between the two of us.
