Review of chapter "The curious incident of the dog in the night-time" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Well, poo... I'm caught up! I really have enjoyed reading this though, and very much look forward to the next bit, whenever you get to it. Thank you. :)
Comments from author:
I'm sorry to say it will be a while before this one updates, I first need to finish Kindred Spirits and get the Faith arc up to date with all the others.

But I'm very glad you enjoyed it so much.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Moony Smells a Rat" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Probably a good thing that Hogwarts isn't real and I was never a student there. I'd likely have been suspended, or even expelled, for hexing the living s*** out of anyone I ever caught hurting Mrs. Norris (or any other animal) in any way, and possibly worse for any older ones who deliberately injured her. Yes, I'm just a teensy-weensy bit protective of those who can't stand up for themselves. My friends have always told me that if they ever get a call to come bail me out of jail, they'll know it was for putting a real beat down on some a**hat who I found hurting an animal or a child.

Though, it is most definitely nice to see Mrs. Norris being properly taken care of, and it would be really nice if Lucius or Filius would put a charm on her that protects her from cruel students who would actually do her harm. Poor thing, I always wanted to scoop her up and take care of her when I was reading the Potter books, or watching the films. Felt the same way about Harry, too. Anyway...

Still love this story.

Probably a good thing it isn't real and I don't know where it is, or I'd be yelling at a lot of people for child abuse...

We shall see what happens next time someone tries to hurt her, shall we? ;-)

Review of chapter "The curious incident of the dog in the night-time" from (Recent Donor)redjacobson
Review:
And now I've caught up with this story! I really can't wait to find out more about Mr Portrait and how Sirius will get out of being neutered by the parents of all the girls *GRIN*

Seriously though, it would be really helpful if you would go and edit the chapters of Lonely Souls and the other stories so we know where each chapter fits in the chronology.

I hope you have some updates for this story soon, I'm really looking to see how you manage to resolve the whole Prophecy Girl mess and all the other threads.

Yes, Sirius needs to work on his running skills.

It is one of the things on my to do list. But things like 'write more' are higher on it. I may do it when the 'first season' is done.

I look forward to that too.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Things to do in Hogwarts when you're dead" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
*whistles* Having been young and incredibly stupid once upon a time, I can understand Luna, but what she did was rather beyond the pale. Hopefully, folks will be able to get through to her that she shouldn't take risks like that unless there are lives at stake.

I really like the way that you are gradually having Severus and Remus bond over a period of time. It would not be believable if their friendship was immediate, but what you're doing here is perfect. I don't know if you intend to make them a couple eventually, or just have them develop a close friendship, but I'd be quite happy either way. Heaven knows they both need it.

Also, I really enjoyed the Care of Magical Creatures class and particularly the scene later that night. It really does something good for the soul to see such disparate, predator/prey creatures enjoying each others company in harmony and reminds me of the German Shepherd and cat I had when I was a kid. They'd play by chasing each other around the house, looking and sounding for all the world like they were going to tear each other to pieces, then plop down for a nap together with the cat between the dogs from paws and the dog resting her head on the cat. Wonderful warm fuzzies!

Last review for the day/night (gotta give you a break from the review spam some time and I need sleep). Thank you for the wonderful distraction today, I wound up reading much more than I wanted to. I've been trying to stretch this out, but that's a lost cause for me because once I start reading, it's hard to stop and this story is so engaging, making that even more difficult. Eh, well... :) Thanks!

Review of chapter "Turnabout is fair play" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Severus Snape referencing both Monty Python and Blazing Saddles. Yeah, I literally laughed out loud. And what a way to get back at Fred and George, pretty much for the entire school. Freaking brilliant!
Comments from author:
In this story Snape is a lot less opposed to things Muggle, or at least more in touch with the Muggle things of his youth.

Those who sow the wind should expect to harvest the storm...

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Debts of honour" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
I've a feeling Remus is going to wind up being very, very grateful to Severus, even though he's more than pissed off now.

*snorfle* Ha! Lucius is a cat person! Well, a kneazle person... Reminds me very much of my ex, who 'hated cats'. Of course, the kitten I got wound up being his and the two slept together all the time, with Woof (yeah, crazy name for a cat and not my idea) snuggled up under his chin like a teddy bear. Cats do have a way of ingratiating themselves and winning over people who say they generally don't like them, a bit like a lot of people, who once given half a chance turn out to be good friends.

Again, gotta say I love this story! Thank you.

Review of chapter "Burrowing" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
*snorfle* Love the Monty Python reference. Also, I have to reiterate how much I prefer your take on things. Thank you.
Comments from author:
Glad you like them. I must admit I find the callousness of the treatment of the children at Hogwarts exceptionally vexing.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Deliberations in a tower" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Again, this story is just the thing to keep the mind focused away from other things on a crummy day. Thank you for this. :)

Also, I misted up a tad bit over this chapter. It is beyond wonderful to see both Harry and Luna receiving love and support. Canon may be more realistic, sadly, but I much prefer this!

Review of chapter "Oaths and Purity" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Oh, very dark indeed, but definitely an excellent chapter! Seeing the softer side of Lucius Malfoy still blows my mind, even though I've seen it in other parts of this series.

I'm really looking forward to reading more of this, but it's time for me to turn into a pumpkin for the time being. I'm glad I've saved this particular story in the series to read in small chunks as a treat. Thank you for writing and sharing this. :)
Comments from author:
Harry Potter is very dark if you read between the lines. Or not so much between, even... I have written him as an evil son-of-a-b in other stories. I was equally surprised.

I hope to update some of the others in the series soon.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Hippogrifs and secrets" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
I think this is my favorite chapter of this entire series to date. I always liked Neville and always thought he could be so much more if he could ever get past all of the bullying and derision, even from his "friends". I love that Neville now has not only Greywing, but his Great-Grandfather. Hopefully, he will bloom a little bit earlier now than he did in canon.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I always liked Neville too. One of those really nasty little things Rowling buried in her books, the way children are treated...

Neville will have a lot more encouragement to excel and a lot less pressure to do so.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

All of this just couldn't have happened to nicer guys. *evil grin* Brilliant!

Review of chapter "Apples and Worms" from Zeviz
Review:
“Yes, well. I think that the words we shall learn today will be ‘I’m very, very sorry.’” The portrait said drily.

lol I like all of your jokes, but this scene was particularly amusing. (The "this is the original great-grandmother's sock" scene was another contender for the funniest moment.)
Comments from author:
Glad you like the humour. I want the HP stories to be slightly more light, though I don't always succeed. Happily PoA makes easier material to keep happy than CoS, which is just creepy in the extreme.

Luna's family is special. ;-)

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The curious incident of the dog in the night-time" from (Current Donor)Truthmaker
Review:
I'd say, "poor Sirius" but he pretty much brought it upon himself. Something tells me that Professor Lupin will have plenty of time to visit the Colonies soon.

I'm still wondering who Snape has in mind as an instructor for Harmony.

Nice to see this story updated. I really enjoy your take on a less Harry centered Hogwarts.
Comments from author:
He wasn't really responsible for a lot of it, but he could have tried to escape a bit more on some occasions. He'd be dead if the Fifth year prefects hadn't been wearing clothes...

Lupin will probably be visiting his parents, yes. ;-)

I need to write his meeting with that person, but Quis custodiet hasn't really managed to break page 8 yet.

I think Harry enjoys it too. He's still a hero, but he's now also allowed a childhood.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The curious incident of the dog in the night-time" from TroyGuffey
Review:
Reasonable Fudge is kind of jarring. Amelia sleeping with Fudge is even worse, and quite a bit icky, considering canon!Fudge. (It could be that she was using a glamor to appear older in the last HP fic I read.)

Sirius getting in trouble for being a friendly dog is hilarious.
Comments from author:
Most elected politicians aren't as bad as the press makes them out to be. Fudge was largely ineffectual. I considered making him a complete bumbler, but that was too shallow. (I've written him like that, but not here, it didn't fit) and as a villain, but that didn't work either.

Fudge and Amelia aren't everybody's dream couple. But they might be very good for each other.

Poor Sirius. First a prank he didn't plan that fooled the entire school and now he still gets punished for it...

Thanks and thanks for reviewing
