Of all the magical children born at the end of last month
The magical world doesn't seem to be that populous, so I don't imagine there were that many magical children born at that time. It could even be that Harry and Neville were the only magical children born in England at that time.
Interesting start to the story. So Voldie goes after Neville because Wormie is just a little late in arriving with the info. I guess Wormie will be around to cause trouble later then??

I suppose you might be right in regards to the number of childrenborn at the end of July. Keep in mind though that "as the seventh month dies" does not necessarily mean the last day or two of the month and could concievably be stretched to include the whole second half of the month. This significantly increases the number of children who's birthday could apply.
I'm glad you enjoyed the start. With regards to Wormtail, you'll just have to wait and see. He'll around...
awww! That's so funny, a real magical snowman. But wouldn't the neighbours notice? And really, James is altogether too carefree when it comes to magic and muggles ... but i love it!
Great story, keep it coming!

Thanks for your review. The neighbours didn't notice anything because of the muggle repelling charms in place. I agree whole-heartedly. James is too care-free, on the surface anyway... He's got his serious side too.
I've never felt the urge to read an alternative universe where Neville was chosen instead but this story is really intriguing. Very nicely done. Poor Neville. I remember the Augusta was the only one to give an interview about Harry, she's probably excited about Neville's status as the boy-who-lived I wonder how that will effect him. Will he end up like Malfoy? Really nice!

I'm glad you're enjoying the story despit it not being what you usually read. As for Augusta's reaction to Neville being the Boy-Who-Lived, I don't acytually remember the refrence you're making to an interview, but I feel compelled to point out that people react differently to similr situations when the person affected is themselves (or loved one) than when it is someone else. Augusta is too caught up in protecting what's left of her family to get hyped about celebrity status. I think it's sfe to sy tht Lily will not llow Neville to grow into Malfoy.
It is really good, but it is really long. How far are you going to go. Just up to Hogwarts, to the end of Hogwarts, are don't even go to Hogwarts.

Really long? Most of the complaints I recieve are that my chapters are too short. I agree that I have been drawing out 1984 quite a bit. The coming years should (if things go as planned) pass more quickly. This story will probably go until just before Hogwarts though I might write a Hogwarts sequel. Thank you once again for all your reviews. I hope to hear from you again.
