Hey are you going to update this or have you reached a road block?

Hope the muse jumps on you soon its a well written fic and deserves an ending.

You're a talented writer, as I'm sure you're aware. I love the historical perspective you bring to the story and that you've developed characters that normally languish in the original author's and other's stories; especially the Grangers. Your back stories are interesting and engaging; not dry in the least. Many have a hard time seeing historical characters as real, but you bring them to life marvelously. The political aspect of your story is likewise engaging.

I don't generally write reviews, however, in this case, I wanted to say, job well done, thus far. Hopefully, you'll continue on with your story. It's absolutely wonderful to come upon a story that's well written, intelligent, well plotted, and keeps the reader wanting more. Thanks.

Just finished rereading this. A wonderful story.

Are you going to be continuing this, or is it abandoned?

I have finally (!!) caught up with this story and it is soooo good. Thank you for the nice long chapters and the activity. I like St. Simon's and the residents that we've been introduced to. I like the Paladin program. Rich!Harry is a cliche but you are doing having him do things with the wealth and power that I don't recall before. I am looking forward to the introduction of the American and other counties Paladins. I especially like Ted Granger and the fact that he was able to convince that killing and murder are two different things - one of them acceptable; the second never acceptable. The characters within the Wizengamot are interesting especially Mr. Smith and Madam Sheets. You actually may be able to make Rita Skeeter a sympathetic character. There are so many more things that I have enjoyed reading the entire 22 chapters and undoubtedly forgotten most of them but they are still interesting and thanks for including them. Even the stometimes long-winded explanations. I'm the kind of reader that may enjoy seeing Harry go through a shopping spree but hearing about the detailed decriptions of the minot differences in the 14 new sets of robes he bought can get boring. So far, I have not been bored with your details. Some of the quantum mechanics are still abit over my head but that may be because I was reading it at 2am *smirk*.
So, hopefully, in the next couple of months you'll be able to upload the chapter dealing with the new school year.
Thanks for the great story!! I really mean it especially since I am not usually a fan of Harry/Hermione. But that pairing is favored over Harry/Ginny IMO

Loving it so far, can't wait for more. By the way, is this story going to go all the way through sixth year, or be a "summer story", followed by a sixth, then seventh year, story?

This is the best chapter of this entire story, for reasons that are, to me, quite obvious. You've done a masterful job in showing Dumbledore as a real, frail, and repentant man and I have to admire the thoughtfulness you put into the dialog between him and Harry in the carriage. Great, great job.

Regards,

Edmond

Brilliant story, I'm looking forward to more. Thanks for the great read, and sorry for the short and banal review.

Fascinating tale. I truly appreciate the depth and reality that belief in God, redemption from sin and living the faith you believe adds to the story. It's a shame there are detractors who marginalize both our Christian heritage and the value of aligning ourselves with it in a personal way. They simply don't understand, do they?
Unlike JKR, I appreciate a strong Harry who doesn't waffle and moan . The Paladin universe is (in my opinion) far more satisfying. May God bless you and yours!

still can't understand how the wizarding public let Fudge remain after it was shown that he'd been lying about Voldemort's return, but I loved the manoeuvring in this chapter.
MORE PLEASE

For once I loved the historical reference and it is SO typically Fudge

Great battle by the way

The Weasley back story was quite interesting but to be honest there was too much of it

Brigrove posted a comment on Tuesday 10th March 2009 1:46pm

loved the comments about muddlesoft

Brigrove posted a comment on Tuesday 10th March 2009 9:14am

I agree with your beta - the main story far better without the lengthy biographical details.

The highlight of this chapter for me was the emotional letter from Molly

Brigrove posted a comment on Tuesday 10th March 2009 7:25am

Nicely constructed chapter. And I loved the true-Brit explanation of how this pureblood nonsense happened. Blame the French! Of course!

Brigrove posted a comment on Tuesday 10th March 2009 5:28am

loved the milicent bit and the final confrontation in front of Fudge.

I disagree with you on religion in HP. JKR has elements taken from religion, you have introduced the religion itself into the story and a religion which forbids anyting to do with witches or witchcraft. While it doesn't bother me enough to make me stop reading an otherwise great story, I find it a mildly tiresome distraction.

nice end scene there. Oh and a pity he didn't blow Snape away, but we can't have everything. About time someone showed Dumbledore where he was wrong too

Brigrove posted a comment on Monday 9th March 2009 5:41pm

The scenes with Molly in the hospital were brilliant and very touching, as was Harry's letter to "his family" via Penny.

I loved the confrontation with Dumbledore and the others over Spell Mongering.

A great chapter

The whole long first half of this chapter was frankly hard work. I felt like Ron trying to read through Hogwarts, a History.
FAR too much of the flashbacks and background story to the point when I began to wonder if you were ever going to get on with the story.
Only the fact that up to now this has been an exciting story despite the textbook style being used far too often stopped me from simply giving up. The chapter really needs a total re-edit.

Even the aftermath of the potions accident was drawn out - In most cases nothing much happened, but you took a long time basically telling us that.

The battle was okay, but it's impact was lost after ploughing through the earlier parts of the chapter.
