Hey, I'm from tag.
Well, this is the coolest idea I have ever seen ever for a fic, ever. Harry Potter! Captain America! Nazi conspiracies! I will admit that I tend to avoid superhero comics but this is just geekily awesome.
So... the story so far is as cool and action/fantasy-movie-ish as the summary promises. I really wanna know how Captain America is going to get involved in the current conflict... it's a given that he'll win, of course - unless you're being really devious - but it still looks to be a fun as hell ride.
Coupla things you could improve on: a) is Grindelwald actually on a chocolate frog card? b) technical stuff, you know, a few extra spaces and missed punctuation.
Keep up the good work, and I'll see you around. :)Author's Response: Thanks a lot for the review!
I was thinking of different ways to combine the two fandoms, and given that Dumbledore and Captain America were likely involved in similar things during the war, I thought it would make for a good backstory.
thanks again! Report Review
Review tag! I decided to review chapter two because you didn't have any so far and because Marvel is - besides Harry Potter - my other favorite fandom so I knew I was going to love this anyway :)
This story has everything I love. Harry Potter, Marvel, and history. Fanfiction heaven, right here.
I love how you incorporated Grindelwald's falling with 1940's Germany. And all of your accurate information with Hitler's comrades was just wonderful.
And then there's the Harry Potter aspect. Again, how you incorporated Harry's seeing into Voldemort's thoughts, even feeling the way Voldy felt as Harry did in the books. You made it believable, because it could have very well happened with how you wrote Harry learning more about Dumbledore's past with the Tesseract.
I loved your characterization of Dumbledore for this line: but when Dumbledore learned that this meant he would have to shave his beard and cut his hair short, it became a deal breaker. - it was too perfect.
Very minor, but I noticed a few times where you meant to write the word 'he' you had 'h' instead - (there were two in the beginning of chapter one, and once in this chapter). Like I said though, it's not that big of a deal, just for if you edit :)
I liked how you had Harry recognize Captain America from Dudley's comic books. I think it was a neat part of his introduction; it reminded me of the Avengers movie, all of the times when Agent Coulson wanted Captian America to sign his cards :)
'I must caution you, one does not simply walk into Nurmengard,'- lotr reference, yes? Just when I thought the awesome couldn't reach any higher, I come across that.
Okay, so you probably guessed this from my excessive fangirling, but I thought this was amazing, and brilliant, and epic. I can't wait to read more of this. (Will you take requests for more appearances? Can you add Bruce Banner!? :p) Keep up the brilliant work!

I find it very interesting the way the Dumbledore/Grindelwald story seems to paralell WWII and obviously Captain America does as well, so I figured why not combine them.
You can rest assured that the rest of the Avengers will be appearing at some point, as well as a few other surprise guests! Report Review
Wow this was a really good start! And I'm also pleased to know that I'm not the only one here who's crossing over Marvel and Jo Rowling's work. Anyway, this is really good and I'm stoked for an update. I can't wait to see where this will go, it seems really interesting.Author's Response: Thanks a lot for the review, hope you enjoy the rest of it! Report Review
This looks like lots of fun! I think you did a great job with all the characters, and poor Harry! Thrown into the middle of yet another scenario that he can't possibly have a clue about. Is Dumbledore going to let him in on the "plan", or is he going to lead Harry on a wild ride through unexplained territory?
I loved how you kept Harry's limited point of view intact by throwing in the bit about recognizing the historical figures from the chocolate frog card and how he remembers vaguely that at this point in the war, things are not going well for Germany.
I also loved that Dumbledore whispered the "need to know" facts into Harry's ear as they viewed the memory. It was necessary, but it was funny too! I want to read more,Author's Response: Thanks a lot for reviewing!
It appears that once again, poor Harry is in way over his head, and that there are many things Dumbledore never told him.
The next chapter is in the queue now, hope you enjoy it! Report Review
Perfect nerd fantasy! this was very amusing, and actually included crossovers that I know a bit about!
In your second sentence, there is only an H when I think it's suppose to be 'he' :)!
You have made a random mix of characters very enjoyable to read about. Adding Hitler to the mix is definitely something I've never seen, and I love being surprised!
You have great imagery through most of this, but then there are parts where it seems to lose a bit of that to dialogue. I always find myself having to go through specifically to edit and check for enough imagery, but even a few small descriptive words of certain actions they were doing while they spoke can go a long way.
Anyway, I love your nerd fantasy, it was very fun to read!
JamiAuthor's Response: Thanks for the review!
The early chapters are a lot of filler information to try to set up the epic battle, so they may not be he most interesting.
HOORAY FOR NERD FANTASIES!
I was really hoping that you would put together another Avengers/Harry Potter thing, I was also hoping for a little X-Men, maybe it's not too late?
Anyway, great job as normal and I can't wait to see what happens next! I am definitively favoriting!Author's Response: Thanks a lot for the review!
Without giving away too much, there will definitely be some more rcognizable charactrs appearing in this... Report Review
