An intriguing start. This promises to be a truly enthralling story.

Thanks.

*hums the Addams family theme song* This should be an interesting cross-over! :D

Now you've got me trying to figure out how the Addams Family Theme goes together with Hedwig's Theme.  It sounds really weird in my head ...

The problem with including the tarot and NOT giving an explanation is this chapter now contains a HUGE section which makes absolutely no sense. I'm sure you researched the layout and meanings of the cards extensively, but because you didn't include what it meant, I'm sure most people simply skimmed it and shrugged and said "Thats nice, but can we get on with the story?"

I know thats what I said. WIthout an explanation, it's just gibberish, you could have put any card in any order you wanted. I'd consider either putting in a partial explanation, or pulling the section. Personally I'd be in favor of a partial, but don't show the final cards, only her reaction to them. Just a suggestion.

It's only three paragraphs.   The rest of the passage is stage-dressing and atmosphere, and gives some sense of the way Morticia lives. 

If you want to look them up, the meanings of all the cards are at http://www.learntarot.com/cards.htm .  Morticia is an intuitive reader, so there is no formal layout (i.e., I didn't feel like taking the time to work out a Celtic Cross or Pyramid spread for the reading).  I'll probably put an explanation at the end of the story.

This sounds like a brilliant idea. is this a entry for NaNoWriMo?

Ishtar replied:

Yes, it is.  I'm going to try to keep this one under control so it stands a chance of actually being finished by the end of the month.

Nice chapter, can't wait to see more.

I'm too tired now to make a more coherent review, so this will have to do :)

I like the change of tone from the beginning of the chapter to the end - from the dark aura of the Addams household to the slightly humorous writing while Harry was at the Dursleys. :)

Can't wait to see what happens next!

Great start. Hope you update soon. Have always loved Addams family crossovers and there are so few out there.

Wonderful beginning. Glad you decided to post it as you write it.

Good to see you writing again, and--even with the cards themselves--I can't wait to see where this leads ...

This could turn out to be a brilliant and funny one!

Yay! I've been waiting for this story since you mentioned it in the forums. Harry Potter/Addams Family cross-over! This is going to be so much fun to read :)

I loved the opening with the Tarot cards, nicely mysterious. And I'm glad you decided to not include the meanings, it'll be fun to figure them out.

Looking forward with great anticipation to more chapters of this fic.
