Aww I enjoyed this story. Sad to see I finished it so quick. =(

Overall really great short story.

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed my little story, even if it was admittedly a bit short. Not too short, but short. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing.

Only one more chapter left =(

Reviewer: TheHallowsInMe31 Signed Date: 2022.06.07 - 07:00AM Title: Chapter 7


Nearing the end now and excited to see how it plays out. =)

Author's Response: Yes. It's coming to an end. The ending honestly left even me with the feeling that it was a bit rushed.

"Snapes Memories" was always my most favorite scenes out of any of the movies and the only time I thought Michael Gambon was 100% better for the role than Richard Harris. I still get goosebumps watching/reading it over a decade later.

Another good chapter =)

Author's Response: Using the memories is indeed a convenient way to convey important information without much hassle, lol.

I'm actually enjoying this story. Short and sweet. Not flooded with too many extra details. Normally I read lengthier works but this one so far is really good. =)

Author's Response: Since I'm not a native speaker, I always try to be brief - less chance of making mistakes. ;-)

Another good chapter. Your chapters are a little short but I know how that goes. I myself have trouble sometimes reaching 3000 words on a chapter so it's not a complaint.

Author's Response: Yes, the short first two chapters and the POV changes set the length of the chapters.

Man I hope they rescue Sirius or at the very least, Sirius escapes. When you said Quirrel tried to kill Harry, does that mean that Harry at least attended his first year? And if so, Did Ron and him become friends in their 1st year like normal?

Author's Response: I promise we'll see Sirius again. Eventually. But you probably found out already, lol. No, Quirrels attacked Harry before his first year at Hogwarts started, and no, Harry doesn't know Ron. I wrote this story for the Ginuary Big Bang of the Ginny Lovers Discord community. It was meant to be a short 10k word story I squeezed in while writing The Secrets of the Chamber. That's why Harry's back story is a bit cut short. Anyway, more or less, it would have been the same as in the first chapter of the other story.

I spoke too soon lmao.

Exclude my earlier comment about getting the drop on Harry.

Good chapter =)

Author's Response: Thanks, lol.

Reviewer: TheHallowsInMe31 Signed Date: 2022.06.07 - 05:32AM Title: Chapter 1


And here I am as promised =)

I like how you started the story with action. Not too many stories start like that.

One thing though, I feel like if Harry was able to beat Dumbledore, even if it was just once, some random person wouldn't be able to get the drop on him. I'm obviously gonna read to find out who it was and if they were successful in disarming him but I wanted to point that out.

Very great start to a story though =)

Author's Response: I'm glad that you like the beginning. When I was pondering the possibilities for Harry and Ginny to meet by chance if Harry didn't go to Hogwarts, Grimmauld Place was one of my first ideas.

There's a small flaw that I can see with Harry's plan with Kreature: by his own words Kreature must do one more thing to be free to serve "any black family member he wishes: he must deliver the letter to Rookwood

Author's Response: I think I see what you mean, but I'm not 100% sure it's a flaw in Harry's plan. In my head, Harry wants Kreacher to deliver the letter to Narcissa or Bellatrix because he thinks it's the best way to make sure Voldemort and Sirius are there. But he also wants that Narcissa/Bellatrix think Harry doesn't know they know. That's why Harry orders Kreacher to send the letter to Rookwood, to make it look like Narcissa/Bellatrix intercepted his letter. However, Harry doesn't trust Rookwood. He suspects that Rookwood will try to capture Harry and hand him over to Voldemort, who then would probably not be there in the morning. In fact, Harry doesn't care if Rookwood gets the letter as long as Voldemort and Sirius are there the next morning. Harry wanting to get rid of Kreacher is just a side effect to ensure Kreacher carries out the order. I'm not sure if this makes sense, but that's what I thought when I wrote the chapter, lol.

I'm glad Harry got a chance to speak to his parents before returning. This was a wonderful climax to your story and I really enjoyed it

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing. I'm glad you enjoyed my little idea.

Well that’s a fun end to this ride……I’m sorry it’s over but fun nevertheless…. Kutgw

Author's Response: Yeah, could have been a bit longer, couldn't it? But it was already twice as long as planned in the beginning. I'm glad you liked it.

Hope Ginny has the presence of mind to dispose of Nagini. Good cliffhanger though, and I've enjoyed the tweaks you've made to make the story your own.

Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad that you liked my idea. I'm apparently in the phase of exploring all possible ways for Harry and Ginny to meet, even though Harry didn't go to Hogwarts.

Cliffhanger of all cliffhangers! Wonder if that floral scent happened to be under someone's invisibility cloak?! Can't wait for the next chapter! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Author's Response: Lol, yes. That's the usual cliffhanger at this point.

Reviewer: Aurorofthelight Signed Date: 2022.01.13 - 05:19PM Title: Chapter 7


The plot thickeneth - a lot! Nice one with Kreacher - the little creep will do just what Harry wants! Hope Ginny and Harry are ready for Moldyshorts and Nagwienie! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Author's Response: Exactly, there are only two more chapters, we've turned onto the home stretch.

Well that was a shocker for Harry! Good that Ginny was there for him! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
