Review #1, by harrypotter4ever VII: Crafting The Pommel

3rd September 2013:
After reading that, I'm not sure what to think of professor aesolon (not totally sure of the sp and too lazy to go check :D). He's a really intriguing character. And one thing I love about this story is that all the characters have so much depth- even though we only see a little bit if them, we can tell they have a much bigger story. Like Kettleburn! He's also an intruiging character, with all those scars and stuff. I was wondering if you were going to bring Sirius in. Although his reason for escaping was seeing the picture that wasn't taken in this story, I don't think he would have sat around forever. Or maybe he would have, idk. Speaking of Sirius and his reason to escape, you haven't mentioned anything about Scabbers. I can't remember right now if Hermione has crookshanks or not in this book, but even without that source of conflict, I don't think Scabbers would have totally dropped of the radar. This is probably really stupid of me, but I only just realized you're naming all your chapters after different parts of building a sword. I think that's really cool! I'm also intrigued about the idea of making someone smarter magically. Idk of you already have a plan for that, but I think it would be really cool if Harry discovered how to do it because of the discoveries on the nature of magic that he made that were unknown before. Speaking of which, I though that was also really cool, and I think it would be even cooler if he learned to do magic just as well without a wand. Of course, that's probably not very realistic, because if that was possible, why would everyone use wands? But still, it would be cool. Looking at this, I realize it probably seems to be a little judgmental, since I'm just listing everything I want. But I'm just trying to give you feedback, and everything I say is just because I'm really interested in how this book is going to go :). Best of luck and I can't wait to hear more! :)

Review #2, by harrypotter4ever VI: Quenching The Blade

29th August 2013:
You know I love this story, but I really don't agree with what you've done to McGonagall. I don't think that she would have blamed Harry if Ginny had died in the books. Is there a particular reason that she blames him? Obviously Harry wouldn't know, so you can't put it in the book, but I'd still like to know. And yes, it is frustrating that so little was accomplished, but like you already said, it's very realistic. Racism has been around for hundreds of years, and despite efforts to get rid of it, some people still believe in it. Those efforts have been mainstream for over 50 years now. The effort to end blood prejudice in a main way was not even present in the books, only Hermione really tried to actively change society (SPEW). So of course it wouldn't change, since no real effort was put into it. As a reader, it is frustrating, but most realistic endings are. It's the worst thin about them :(. As always, fantastic job and I can't wait for more! I find it a little ironic that this post has more words in it than the average college essay :D.

Review #3, by harrypotter4ever V: Temper the Steel

20th June 2013:
Awesome chapter! Totally fascinating, like the rest of the book! I love what you've done with the characters, especially Ron. I agree with you about the cannon version of him. I mean, I get that he's insecure, but you'd think that in the middle of a crisis when Harry's got no clue he would see it as his time to shine, not quit! Keep up the good work & I can't wait until the next chapter! :)

Review #4, by harrypotter4ever IV: Into the Fire

5th June 2013:
I like the new Harry! I feel nervous over what's going to happen when he tells Ron though. Can't wait till next time! And I was also wondering if Harry's going to take his control of wand less magic any farther, and maybe become able to do something with it. This is a very good, well written book with good development and enough suspense to keep the reader interested while not making them be like tell me already!
