Well it looks promising. I am generally not much of a fan of crossover fics but I am very fond of the Addams family so I am quite curious to see where you are headed. I have enjoyed Fidelius thus far and I liked After the Fall so any further progress on those stories would also be greatfully received as well. Thank you, Wolfric

Very cool concept, I like where this could go.

I love the twist that you put where Harry is dismembering hte morning paper and scattering it to the wind. It seems to make him fit more with the Addams family structure than plain old Harry would.

Excellent job. I'm glad that you are tackling this challenge.

Would be a twist if I'd intended it; I was just picturing what happens when you give a bored toddler a newspaper ... Front page goes in the rose bush, adverts in the perennial border, the sporting news blowing down the street ... I figure most of Privet Drive was wearing Vernon's newspaper that day ...

i have this vision of harry being raised with wednesday and pugsley and i can't help but laugh maniacly at what that harry would do when faced with dumbledore's incessant cheerfulness.

An interesting start. I'm curious to see how it shapes up from here.

hmmmm, I like it. :) "The Addams Family" I presumed, yes? :-D Kudos to me for getting it from "Morticia" before I read "Addams"... althouhg, really, how many times do you hear that name? ;) hahaha. Ooooh, Harry raised by the Addams Family! :-D hehehehe, I've never read one of these before!! I'm all excited! Normally I never beg for more, but this story has me all excited and I want to know more more more! ;) hehehe, so *ahem* please write mroe when you're able, but please excuse me if I do hope that "able" is soon. ;) hehehe. Great start, though, you really had me going for most of the chapter where on earth you were headed with that. :) Kudos.

Like it so far. Morticia's surname wouldn't happen to be Addams perchance would it?

Ishtar replied:

Of course it is.  Says so right in the story.  Addams is the name on the envelope, Petunia confirms it's from her cousin Morticia.

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

Ishtar replied:

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.

Ishtar replied:

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.

Beau Wolff posted a comment on Thursday 2nd November 2006 3:50am

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

Bernd Jacobitz posted a comment on Thursday 2nd November 2006 3:37am

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

Uldihaa posted a comment on Thursday 2nd November 2006 3:21am

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.

Good chapter. I was hoping to see more of this. :-)

Thanks for sharing it with us.
