Oh Severus! <sigh> Actually what Lily did pushed him over the edge I guess.

I agree with this description of Molly. I really can see it.

Totally awesome! Now find a way to bring back Sirius from the Veil!

Truly superb! I hope the old goat really gets his just desserts! The only thing wrong with that ward is that it didn't hold the caster accountable as well. Judgement of Blood! Albus was just as guilty of the abuse as the Dursleys.

What a great idea! I love it! I hope you gut Albus like the git he is or stuff him in Azkaban with the Dementors for years.

I'd really love to see an update to this.
I really, really, REALLY want to know why Lily doesn't like Hermione - all she's doing is making me want to rip her red hair out - by the roots - and then feed it to her....

OMG!!! They're alive!!!
And whyyyy is Lily acting this way? Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

this is a great story, and i felt that the handover between authors was fairly seamless (something that is very hard to do). i don't like what you're doing to lily here, though. i'm really hoping that there's some kind of hex or curse on her, because slapping your child is a big deal. the fact that he was abused previously makes it an even bigger deal. i think it would be appropriate for her to talk seriously with hermione and even for her to talk to harry about her concerns. i think it would even be appropriate for them to argue about it. i don't like where you're taking the character, though.

I wasn't going to comment on this chapter, but I feel that I must. Most people (fan fiction writers) have always thought/written that Lily was a much better woman than you've portrayed in this chapter. I, however, tend to agree that Petunia and Harry were exhibiting an Evans trait. Harry's angst driven year (OOTP) proved he had a temper and we know that Petunia had one, although I liked to think that was partly Vernon's fault. Lily has been shown through Snape's pensieve memories to have a temper, but against her own son, that soon, might be a bit of a stretch. I can see the fine line of a mother's jealousy over a girl about to replace his mother, so I say, well written and spot on.

I'm surprised I haven't read this excellent piece before. It has a few elements of another story I've read in that James and Lily survived and were told Harry had died, but I really like this version. Very few spelling errors, so that's always a plus and it's well written and logical. The only item I could find fault with was Remus curling up with Harry as a werewolf. That shouldn't work, even with wolfsbane according to canon. A minor point though, so not really a criticism.

Great story, lots of angst. It's great to see a story were Lily isn't all goodness and light but a normal person with petty faults. Is this story going to continue? Like to see Harry having other girls chasing him such as some Slytherins.

So, any word on updates for this one? I am greatly enjoying it, as this is not a plot I've seen elsewhere, and for one I can't wait to see more.

i dont suppose there is an update coming anytime soon?

It's a shame that you've gotten no further with this story. I began reading it today and would not walk away from the computer until I was done. It's quite engaging and I would love to see more on it.
I've been reading quite a few of your stories in the last few days as my guy has introduced me to you and I agree with his assessment that you are a fantastic read. I hope to read more.

I am so hooked on this story, I have not checked on when you posted or updated after you took over the story, I hope that you have plans to complete it. It is having more depth for the individuals with a wider range of emotions. Keep the posting coming.

I've just finished reading all of 'Wishful Thinking', and I must say that it's one of the more original fanfiction plots that I've seen in quite some time. I do hope that, at some point, the muse will climb on your back and encourage you to write more in this most interesting story. Particular kudos on dealing with the issue of the 'ghosts' during the brother wand incident in the graveyard at the end of the TriWiz--the 'ghost of a ghost' explanation works as well as anything. Also, to have Harry realize that his parents aren't saints shows remarkable maturity on his part. One suggestion: Harry may need to remind his parents (especially Lilly) that he is a Family Head in his own right, and has his own rank and responsibilities (not to mention fortune). Oh, that would be an UGLY scene...but you've shown that you can do well at writing ugly scenes, and they do drive the story forward most forcefully.
I truly enjoyed the story thus far and, once again, hope to be seeing more of it in future.
