Everytime I read this story, I like it more and more. Well researched, a rarity, well written, a wonderful surprise, and an engrossing read, which in and of itself, makes this fic stand out.

Well done :)

Patches - Thanks for starting "382 BC." It is my most original work, and I am most proud of it. A number of people drop off in the first few chapters because it drags a little while Willen and Eirran stumble towards the basis of magic as it's known in the PotterVerse. It has to be discovered hit ot miss, groped towards, to be realistic. By the time they leave prison it will begin to be more exciting. Those few that stick with my tale up to the first dragon incident, generally finish it and rant and rave about how much they enjoy it. I hope you can stay the course. Thanks for reading and reviewing all of my works! Cheers!

The Potter pun entertained me so much. I especially liked them being too brave for their own good. You've made Willen & his luck into a likeable, interesting character. "Baldet felt bad about nearly killing a fellow dog lover. He decided to show Willen some mercy and ordered him sent him to the dungeon for the rest of his life instead." was a particulary good bit.

Fantastic first chapter to this story. I really like Willen, and the people of Loudon. It is great to see that they were able to come together, and look for solutions to their problems.

Although that is not unique to those people, my guess is that kind of courage was as rare in that day as it is today.

Harry faces those kinds of challenges as did Willen. And, to be blunt, we all face those challenges in our current day as well.

Thanks for sharing this story.

I haven't finished chapter 1 yet. However, I noticed you have removed chap.1 from the chapter area.

Can you check on that?

Thanks.

PS. To this point, the story is brilliant! I will leave another review when I have completed the chapter.

Incredible. This chapter took an amazing imagination to write, and I was laughing at several points. I enjoy your 'story telling' style. Its history, but in the fashion of a good oral history where you can tell it has been changed ever so slightly to make it a better story. I like how Willen has the lazy eye like the Ollivanders after him. Good stuff.

I had to know 'why 382 B.C.' in canon.  My research gave me no real reason, and reading fanfiction told me nothing either.

So I had to explain it all.  Man-days of research and 138,000+ words later...

Thanks for your interest.

Very interesting story. And the only "correction" is that Knuts are bronze...
I'm off to read chapter two!!
