oh, i love this kind of fanific! so randomly cool, you know? sort of like "how on earth did you actually come up with this?" but its so good! what a difference that would have made if Vernon died. you got harry's personality down spot on too! excellent job!
Ah, I was sure it would be Severus.....good for you for taking a different path. Poppy knew Remus well, and so knew a good bit about James and Sirius, too. The summer in Hogsmeade....this should be interesting....
This looks very interesting - I can't wait to see what you do with it. I can see several directions for you to take it and any one of them could prove quite entertaining.
I'll be looking forward to more - your writing style is pleasant and overal, you have good grammar and spelling. One friendly nitpick - in one paragraph you mention how Dumbledore calways has a way of "peaking" Snape's interest and I believe it should be "piquing" which is the spelling you use a little further on.
Anyway - so glad to see something new and different to read!
Now that's an odd take. Since this is canon and phoenixsong locks in ships to canon, I won't complain too much that Harry doesn't get to stay with Hermione. Still, Madam Pomfrey is quite a surprise. This could be a good one.
I hate to point it out, but the quote about phoenixes is actually from The Chamber of Secrets; canon Harry doesn't meet Fawkes until Justin and Sir Nicholas are petrified and McGonagall takes him to see Dumbledore.
that looks promissing!!! at least it's new an refreshing...i don't think i ever read anything similar
one question: is this supposed to go and cover all of Harry's Hogwarts' remaining years of schooling? Or is it just a Summer fic???
Anyway, keep up the good work and PLZ update soon!!!
