Great story. I read some of it awhile ago and enjoyed it. I am glad I checked back here and found you had updated.
The small section of conversaton between Harry and Ginny was lovely. But I wonder, at the age of 13 with an older Harry memories, why their relationship is not progressing even just a little bit?
Anyway, update when you can.

First of all, this is a quite good story. I'd guess it has been brought up before, but the oddest part seems to be why they haven't finished the Horcrux hunt, with the most likely explanation being that they are not sure Voldemort will leave the realm when they are destroyed. Still, the chance of losing those pieces is a big thing, and I just can't see the risk being taken, particularly if there is another way to banish what is left of his spirit. Another idea might be to destroy them all but the hat, and give the hat a way to destroy itself, should it be taken with the understanding that they would try to save the hat after Voldemort was destroyed. Beyond that, I don't remember a big deal being made of the wards at the Granger's, Luna's, and Neville's. Are those weak points?
Still, all in all this is a quite compelling story. Thanks for the new chapter.

This has to beone of the best stories I've ever read. This chapter didn't live up to most of the others. Is this a bridge chapter? I hope so I'm looking forward to seeing the storyline progress.

An interesting chapter...
Keep up the good work, whenever you get the time and urge to write. ;)

I have to admit, I don't think that your rather transparent solution to remove Bullstrode from Hogwarts would fly with the evil pureblood crowd. Just because Millicent was moved to France accompanied with some additional publicity wouldn't stop her daddy from joining her sister due to a breech of faith. I don't see that it's any different than if he had pulled her out of Hogwarts himself. The only real thing to change is how public they make his "tragic but completely accidental" death.

Started at the beginning - again - so I could keep my stories straight. I must be a little too old to read several stories simultaneously. Still really enjoying it. Keep up the good work and have fun! Happy New Year!

Great chapter, and I'm glad to see you're back to writing again. On the whole, I loved it, but I do have one eentsy little nit to pick.
Hermione should know that a duckbilled platypus is a monotreme (an egg-laying mammal), not a marsupial. To be sure, the continent they live on, Australia, is dominated by marsupials, but the platypus lays eggs.

I think Harry & Co will regret not engineering a few 'accidents' before 3rd year ends.

Hooray!! It's great to see more of this wonderful story, and this was a very good chapter. I love the interaction between Harry and Ginny. I also like your inventiveness in coming up with new threats that weren't in canon.
Happy holidays to you, too!

OMFG! I had the worst day ever, nothing was going right, and then I check fanfic authors and YOU UPDATED?! can I say OMFG again?!
So, honestly, this was my favorite story ever. Got me started on fanfiction, which i have now read years and years worth. To log on and finally read the 28th chapter that I have yearned for was the best joy i have experienced in a long time.
You have no idea how happy you made me. That smile on my face, still there. prolly not going anywhere for hours, days, weeks.
OMFG! HARRY POTTER AND TE NIGHTMARES OF FUTURES PAST! KENNY!

As always, beautiful work. Just as I'm about to count this story out, you come back and make me read a do-over fic. (grin) Take care, happy holidays, and don't let real life get you down.
