I made a point of watching Addams Family Values when it was on TV recently, so that's where the name of the title came huh?

Quite a stellar cast, Morticia, Wednesday, Uncle Fester, Gomez were all great and as I remembered them and had the quirks I liked in this fic. Christini Ricci was Wednesday Addams. Only Pugsley was a bit of a letdown.

The three at camp definately looked like Wednesday, Pugs and Harry. WHen did the idea form for you while you were watching this?

Anyway, a solid mystery/general fic up to this point. Thanks.

Can't wait for the muse to strike again.

The title was inspired by the AFV movie, but as you can tell, nothing else came from it. Pubert may show up later, but Debbie won't - I have other plans for Uncle Fester's love life - and there will definitely be no summer camp). My Addams Family is based on equal doses of the original New Yorker cartoons, the 1960's TV show and the first Addams Family movie (if you have not seen that one, run right out and rent or buy it - it's much better than the second one, which I actually kind of despise).  My Pugsley is based more on the intelligent Pugsley of the TV show, who cared for and protected his little sister.  The cartoons also showed an intelligent, although malevolent, Pugsley who gave as good as he got.  Wednesday is definitely the movie Wednesday.

I got the idea when I was looking at some reprints of the cartoons, and realized that there was very little about the Addams Family that was incompatible with Rowling's world, and much that they had in common.  Then I went looking for crossover fics and found very little.  So obviously that gap had to be filled.  :D  I hadn't even thought about the character of Joel at the summer camp looking like Harry, and the idea did not form while watching that movie.

I have chained the Muse to her work table, and hope to have a new chapter soon.

Excellent, excellent, excellent!

The idea of an Addam's Family/Harry Potter crossover was a little scary at first, but you've done a wonderful job at it. The Addam's family characters don't feel oddly juxtaposed in a world where they don't belong; they fit right in. I particularly love Gomez in this fic. An interesting spin on Dumbledore, as well - I wasn't fond of your Dumbledore at first but he is growing on me.
"...there were some round cakes with an interesting sweet red filling that he found quite tasty." I have to ask, could this "interesting sweet red filling" be pomegranate filling? Overall, an engaging and original fic. Can't wait for the next chapter.

The Addams family history goes back much farther than John Dee in the late 15th/early 16th Century. The proof? A quote by Gomez in the first movie:

"We danced the Mamushka while Nero fiddled,
We danced the Mamushka at Waterloo,
We danced the Mamushka for Jack the Ripper,
And this Mamushka, Fester Addams, is for you."

That traces the Addams family and one of their traditions to the Great Fire of Rome, which was started on July 18, 64AD. Since Harry's first year started in the fall of 1991, that means his family history is at least 1,927 years old. The history of Hogwarts itself only dates back approximately 1,000 years. In a culture that views lineage as a status symbol, that's a powerful weapon.

I just found this story yesterday! (thru the Quibbler Awards) I love it I had trouble not laughing out loud (I was at work).
This is so funny! I love it when Harry is not raised by the Dursleys.
Keep writing!
;-)

It's a great story that has great potential. The entire Addams family is awesome, by the way. I kind of feel bad for Dumbles, he has way too much work for his age; he may end up having a stroke or a heart-attack sometime soon if he keeps it up. Update soon!

Is your muse behaving itself, or has it run off to parts unknown again? This story is really good. Please update soon.

I love your story. You are able to meld two different universes into one intriguing story.

This was a very funny chapter. I love listening to Gomez, as he is one crazy puppy!

I love how you made Mr. Adam sound like him on the T.V. show. Excellent work!

Well I must say I was absolutely determined not to read this story. The idea of Harry with the Addams's was truly not enticing (For me). I know, to be part of Fanficauthors.net means you are part of an elite group of writers - so I finally decided to give you a shot. I must say I owe you an apology for taking so long to read this story. You have done what I thought was the impossible. This is a great story and you are a great writer. I hope your next update is coming soon. You have me hooked. Keep up the great work - and thank you for the hours of enjoyment!

*Pouts* Ishtar... I'm sad over the little clifie... Can't wait for you to write some more. I love the terrorizing of Dumbledor... he drives me up the wall and the lengths that your characters go to benignly 'stick it to him' are refreshing.

Thanks
