Honestly, there's no need to berate yourself over silly little errors. I like to think of the Dumbledores as insane/eccentric enough to wear robes to a duel and pull it off gracefully, and a couch is certainly a reasonable thing to expect, even in a run-down little bungalow.

Anyways, I'm only 4 chapters in at the moment, but I had to fire that rant off. The story so far is original, as it certainly deviates from established cliches (i.e. spineless Peter, gotta-be-evil Malfoy), and in a way that's believable and brilliant. In comparison, magically appearing sofas are inconsequential!

Uh oh. Love the way you're writing this. I don't feel sorry for Peter but I do feel fascinated by the way the wizards interact with muggles & house elves. Nanny is particularly good.

I actually feel sorry for Peter. Aw...poor misguided, put upon Peter...no really. And also. You only had the house elves start speaking like the 'Big People' because you couldn't be bothered writing their annoying little dialect, could you? Just kidding, but I'd do the same thing... your story amuses me in a strange way. The oddest things make me burst out laughing. When I realized what you'd done with the house elves, I cracked up. Dobby would love Harry's place. He would thrive and burst into unnecessary tears constantly.

I just didn't want to have Harry speaking  their annoying little dialect.   Can you imagine the razzing he would have gotten if he'd showed up at Hogwarts speaking  fluent house-elf?

Just a quick note if you really want to keep as canon with out being canon as possible... hows that for an oxymoron... the Black Family tree that JKR herself created is located at http://www.hp-lexicon.org/images/blackfamilytrees/official-final-version.gif
It gives Sirius's mom's name as Walburga rather than Lavinia... it's a great piece of work... it even references the other pureblood family relations and HOW they are related to the Black line...

Ishtar replied:

I am aware of the Black Family tree.   It hadn't been released yet at the time this chapter was written.   At some point, I might go back and correct her name, note Sirius' relationship to Harry, and correct the degree of relationship to Arthur.   I have a ton of other minor corrections to make to early chapters anyway.

This is so original and so well-written. I love how SNAPE is the figurehead for the wizarding world...how funny. And Peter's death, and his now ghost form - wow. That's something I didn't see coming. I wonder how the Fidelius is going to break.

Again - wonderful. Could be published.

OMGoddess! The part about Remus being a witch is having me in stitches right now! ROTFLOL! Damn I loved that, I can imagine him laughing so hard about it when he figured that out!!!!! What a great cover for the muggles. You just made my day so much brighter than it had been. Its been a little rough the past couple of days but thank you so much for putting that in and I think it was magick that brought me to read it today.

Mari - Eclectic Pagan

Ishtar replied:

Being of the eclectic pagan sort myself, I had always wondered what the Wizards would think of Muggle ideas of Wicca.   So I decided to put a little touch of it in the story.   The books are real and were ones that would have been available in England at that time, and the blonde in the pictures in the books is real and Sirius would definitely have approved of a religion like that, I think ...   ;D

I didn't like the fact that Peter was buried in Potter's field. Other than that, great story so far. :)

Ishtar replied:

Potter's Field is just what they call it - the shorthand term for a municipal graveyard where the poor and unidentified are buried.   I could have called it "Municipal Graveyard #3" or something, but everybody knows what Potter's Field is.   And it was ironic.

Excellent work. I'm left
wondering if James and
Lilly were there to
condem him or offer
forgiveness for his
weakness.

That's my favourite chapter so far!!!
I loved the scene whith Remus and the Werewolf books.
I also thought that Harry would have troubles to understand the difference between house elves and humans. Your solution was great! What will the wizards think, once they see educated house elves?! :)

aaah you made snape a hero, noooooooooo!!!

Ch.5 - - This is just tooooooooo clever! To the extreme.

I cannot believe how many gaping canon holes you filled in an AU way. The Grindelwald explanation was very original. I have no need for it in any stories I plan, but I have thought of an equivalent sort of explanation of that war.

Remus writing Muggle witchcraft related fiction is choice. Peter as a ghost is amazing - of course he'd be afraid of death.

But Snape as a hero - now I am floored with the brilliance of that idea.

Cheers!

UPDATE!

hehe. Hope you're doing well - and your hubby, too!

It's going to take Nanny a while to get things smoothed out with Harry? When will Sirius and Remus reenter Harry's life? Will Peter tell them where Harry is? Sort of ironic that Peter got buried in a "Potters field".

Very interesting effects in this chapter. It'll be instructive to see if Peter can interact with the elves and young Harry, let alone those looking for Harry.

I'm quite enjoying this story.

Sorry for the double review.

Is Harry going to get into Hufflepuff? *blinks rapidly*

What can Peter do to help him? Teach him Wizarding ways hopefully? Please? Harry the house elf may be fun for a while but it'll become humilating later ...

Hm. I hope Harry isn't going to act like a House Elf in public. That would be outrageous. Maybe okay when he was a kid, but common sense kicks in somewhere, right?

I don't mind him being capable of elf magic though. ;-)

Simply great :)
I love this AU, no continuity mix-ups and so well written, it simply draws me in.
