I love this story ... except that I can't help but feel that Snape is not being Slytherin enough; the last chapter inspired some hope, so I'll look forward to Snape coming around to Harry. It's a matter of what is in Snape's best interests; obviously with the blackmail the Family has on Dumbledore, he won't be any sort of backer to Snape if he carries on and alienates Harry completely. Socially, as well, Harry is a force to be reckoned with, and with Morticia pushing for greater parental involvement at Hogwarts, Snape should not be seen to be ostracizing Harry or other non-Slytherin students; won't it look odd especially if Harry, Wednesday and Pugsley ace their OWLS when their Potions' record is so poor?

Ishtar replied:

Give Snape some time.   We're only two months into the first year, and he's behaving pretty much as he did in canon - with the added justification that this Harry really does act in ways that could confirm "arrogance" as Snape sees it.   Remember, Harry's entire background has changed, but Snape's hasn't.   He is what he is, and changes will take place going forward.   Some of what you cite (like the power of the Family over Dumbledore) is unknown to Snape; he cannot take that into consideration at this point.   The extent of Harry and Morticia's social manipulations  is likewise  unknown to most, although obvious to a reader.   The impact will start to  become evident shortly, and Snape will modify his behavior accordingly, but just because he's a Slytherin, that doesn't mean he can easily overlook grudges that have been stewing for twenty years or more.

I found your story by pure happenstance and I'm real glad I did. I've not read a Harry Addams Story before and I believe that it is setting a high standard for what I will hope be a great genre. Now if only i could find a good Harry Potter Indiana Jones Crossover my day shall be complete. I've always wondered what would happen if in book seven, instead of fighting voldemort to the death, he instead imperio's a death eater to open the ark of the coveanent in Riddle's Head qauaters, or in the graveyard as riddle rises after the triwizard-tournament.

Ishtar replied:

I   submitted a drabble length bit to Crys's 1001 deaths of Lord Voldemort that had Tom Riddle, as a young man working for Borgin & Burke's, tracking the progress of an artifact that he very much desired ... and getting to it just as the lid was removed from the Ark of the Covenant.   I'd like to see a longer piece too.

I just read your story. I couldn't get enough of it. I read it as quick as I could and can't wait for you to get the next chapter out.

Just read the whole story. Can't wait for the next chapter. I really love this story.

Theres a lot of good Harry Potter stories but this has been fantastic the whole way through with no slow moments. I can't say enough about it. I really love this story. Keep it up.

"Tish," said Uncle Gomez, sweeping her into his arms, "you spoke French!"

"Oui, mon cher," she replied, running her hands up his arms.

"Cara mia," he responded, pulling her closer into a passionate dip.

"Oy vey," said Harry, putting his hands over his eyes.

*falls out of chair, laughing*

"What is it?" asked Wednesday, who couldn’t see at all around the boys and was dancing on her toes in impatience. "Is it the mad aunt? Is she dead?"

I do hope Wednesday won't talk about mad aunts, and such, to Neville.

"What happened to Sirius Black? You said he was my father’s friend, and that he’s alive but can’t vote his shares. Remus — that’s our tutor — has mentioned him, too, but he always looks sad when he does. So what happened to him?"

"Mr Black has been imprisoned by the Ministry — without a trial or record of a conviction — since two days after your father died. Some say that he was responsible for your parents’ deaths."

Harry caught his breath. "But doesn’t anybody know for sure? Don’t you know?"

"Goblins deal with facts, Mr Potter, not speculation. If there isn’t the requisite paperwork filled out, it never happened. All we know is that Black never repudiated the alliance, which is curious if he indeed turned against your father. Until someone asks him, we cannot know."

"Why doesn’t someone ask him, then?"

"Mr Black is currently held in the depths of the Prison of Azkaban, Mr Potter. It is a terrible place, and prisoners frequently go mad there. After almost ten years, I am afraid there will be no asking Mr Black anything."

"Why doesn't somebody ask him?" Out of the mouths of babes! I've got a feeling that Harry will be breaking in to Azkaban to put a few straight questions to his Godfather, before all this is over!

The ring was carefully stashed in Harry’s vault. It had stopped insisting that he wear it after he had threatened to throw it into an active volcano.


Oh, Ish, I do love this fic!

Grah! I truly want to hurt Snape! Is anyone going to talk to him about the fact that he's a git! Harry gets hurt and he has to walk a few floors to the Infirmary. Malfoy gets hurt and "oh no! levitate!"
*Deep breaths*
Okay....i like your story so far except for the fact that i am getting increasingly frustrated over snape.
I practically fell over laughing at the image of Neville at the Addam's house.
Enjoying greatly!

Ishtar replied:

Remember that this is first year Snape.   He's been stewing in resentment for the past ten years or more.   He's still convinced that Harry is arrogant, and nothing Harry's done has disabused him of that notion - this Snape is even more convinced of it than Canon!Snape.   Plus, he's still kowtowing to the Malfoy family.   It's only been two months; that's not a long time for things to change.

Rest assured that he will, eventually, get what's coming to him.

This story is brilliant! I love the way you've managed to combine the fandoms and make it believable, and the way you treat Malfoy is perfect. Write more soon!

Ah i think that was bullshit, why isnt harry more crul, i think he should be towrds those who fuck with him, i dont want to see some pansy harry.

Ishtar replied:

He's cruel enough, for an eleven year old, but his cruelty is more psychological than physical.    He and Wednesday have just destroyed Malfoy's 'street cred' in Slytherin - something that will hurt Malfoy for far longer than a simple sword cut would.   I don't believe there is any call for Harry, even this Harry, to be a sadist.   He wouldn't be Harry if he were.   He will do what needs to be done without hesitation, but going too far and reveling in it would destroy him.  

Harry is not a pansy.   Neither is he on the path to become another Voldemort.  

We recently had a discussion on this at the FFA forum.   You might find it interesting.

CRAZY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heheheh i wonder what will happen :) keep it up i love this story big time!!!

Oh, my furry, pointy-eared God! I LOVE this chapter! If I tried to list all my favorite parts, this review would be longer than the chapter itself!

BTW, Draco isn't clear on what a Mistress is, but it seems pretty clear that Wednesday - and her brother and cousin - are. That's progressive education for you! ;-)

(Oh, but Ginny's going to be so sad when she gets to Hogwarts and discovers that Harry is already taken!)

*holds out hands, like Oliver Twist holding up his bowl* Please, Ma'am, I want some more!

A great chapter indeed.

Just one nit - Gomez goes from having an unlit cheerot to puffing noxious smoke. He pulled it out, but he never lit it.

That said, the "duel" had me rolling. I was almost expecting Harry to start with the left hand and make a comment that he didn't even need to switch hands to his dominant, but I can't have everything. Waiting the next chapter eagerly!

Ishtar replied:

And you get a cookie!   That was NOT a mistake, that was deliberately done, and you're the first one that's commented on it!

An acquaintance of my husband's can actually do this ... she takes an unlit cigarette out of the package, waves it around while she talks, and then takes a puff -- without ever having lit it.   She denies using sleight of hand, and says she's always been able to do this.   It's just one of those weird things that happen in real life but most people try to ignore.   I thought it made sense to give some of those  little talents to the Addams Family (sort of like Morticia "smoking" without a cigarette and Fester making light bulbs light up in his mouth).   It establishes that yes, the Addamses have some magic.   Maybe not as much as Harry or Remus, but they do have some.

All these times, when i've seen the summary of this fic and thought it too stupid to waste time on, and went to Bobmin's pompous and neverending ramblings instead. I can't believe it.

Well, now that i've come to my senses, and laughed myself senseless again, I am most certainly putting this enchanting tale on my top five list, and updates will henceforth be celebrated with a glass of the 24-year-old.

Thank you.

Wow. This is really really really well written. I love how you keep close to JK's writing style, especially in the beginning of the fic. I really hope you update this story ASAP.
