Heh, I love the comments about how he found he was not the descendant of merlin or the founders, and how his magical artifacts where not of unknown quaility, nice break from the norm there.

I'm really enjoying this story. It's nice to see it's possible to really change events without going overboard with power and 'good things' when giving it all a lighter tone.

I'm wondering what happened to Harry's talk about Riddle at the dinner after the Halloween Ball though. Would have expected to see some kind of reaction from the other students, wether he told them or decided not to.

Thanks for writing.

I keep forgetting about the talk.  Harry, however, forgot about the talk to inform the students about Riddle with the events of Halloween night.  Someone may remind him yet.

Ah, good. You gave Harry all the miscellaneous "stuff" of a old family, but you DIDN'T give him any way-cool items, nor did you make him a Founder heir (or scion, as it were ;). I liked how you subtly poked fun at those stories that DO have some wunder-stuff in the Potter ancestral vault.

Are you going to make multi-animagus a unique trait? How will McG react when she finds out he's ready for a second (and third) form?

Love the ongoing prank. Don't want to point this out if it's already been said, but the dodo is the same as the magical diricawl. Which ISN'T extinct, per the Lexicon.

I enjoyed Bill and Hermione trying to corner Harry. Enjoyed Harry's temporarily successful efforts to divert them, too.

Musings of Apathy replied:

Lord forbid I make him a Scion.  That would just be cliche, besides, I hear that someone else is doing a story about that, something like 'Scion of Slytherin' or the sorts.  {Seriously, though, I love your story.}

As far as the vault goes, I find myself drifting away from suspension of disbelief when an author makes up TOO much fun stuff.  If some authors were to be believed, a person could buy one set of robes and never have to change them with all of the auto-resizing, auto-repairing, color-changing, style-changing, self-cleaning, hip-slimming charms that are available at Madame Malkins if you just know to ask and don't mind spending 400 galeons for your knickers.

Multi-animagus will go mostly unexplained as far as why there are not more mentioned, or even if there are more.  I will go into registration later, and what that entails, once I make it up.  How will Micky-G react?  I don't know, guess that we will just have to read it later.

Okay, the Diriclaw...why can't all readers be as ignorant as I am?  I promise not to mention anything extinct again before looking at lexicon.  Maybe Harry can be excused for not reading Fantastic Beasts and retaining every detail, but it is inexcusable for Hermione.  Perhaps she was distracted by trying to weasle the runic information from Harry.  Yeah, that sounds good.  She may have a 'How could I have been so stupid?' moment.  A bit of light reading, reviewing every magical animal in the world in fantastic beasts while she is eating her poridge or something.

Thank you for reviewing.

I've been following your great story for a long time now...I've seen it bounce around from site to site. And I kept on googling till i found it again. It's an intensely rewarding story and your ideas are very original and well thought out. As a fanfic writer myself (notice writer, not good enough to be author) I have to admire what you've done so far. :) Keep up the great work and I look forward to (i.e. check back every day) for new updates to this amazing story.

Great story. I read this on siye and found you here when you quit there. I hope that you keep going, this is to good to stop. Good luck.

Glad I've found your new site! Please keep it coming and I wonder if you are going to let Ginny find some extra/super magic to compliment harry's

Loved the idea of the prank Harry pulled on the Weasley brothers. I can't wait to see what happens when they get back to school and what Malfoy will try and pull. I almost have faith for Crabbe and Goyle maybe wising up to the fact that Malfoy is just using them and they would be better off with Harry, any hopes of that occuring?

Harry and Ginny are so sweet together and you can tell that they really love each other. You've done a great job building up their relationship. I also like the relationship between Albus and Harry, though it seems that they still might need to mend some fences. Will there be more of Professor Snape in the story? I've liked the small bits of him that we've seen so far.

Tell me, was the mistake about the Dodo deliberate, or is it just that you didn't read "Fantastic beasts and where to find them" entry "Diricawl"

Musings of Apathy replied:

I didn't read it.  I wanted to come up with an extinct bird and that is what came to mind.  If nothing else, I can say that it slipped their mind or they didn't know.  It's not a major point.

Thank you for reviewing.

A most awesome chapter! which of the brothers will figure out the prank first? Will it be Bill? I look forward to more.

Keep up the great work

Very good! I really liked the dig at other authors pre-occupation with making harry the heir of every important magical person ever!

Nice work!
Keep it up and keep updating!!

Musings of Apathy replied:

Thank you.  Right now is the struggle to write the chapters leading from here to the Gryffindor/Slytherin Quidditch match, which was one of the first chapters to be written, and has been rewritten a couple of times since then.

That was a wonderful chapter! I hope you have fun writing the next one!

write and keep your imagination alive!

Splunge posted a comment on Friday 14th July 2006 8:40pm for Chapter 43: Runes and Trips

Actually, the dodo isn't extinct. In Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, Jo explains that what the muggles refer to as the dodo is actually a magical creature called the diricawl, which is alive and well to this day. The muggles are unaware of the diricawls ability to vanish and appear elsewhere at will (similar to phoenixes, but without the flames), and have thus concluded that they hunted the dodo into extinction. The magical community have encouraged this, as it protects the species, and teaches the muggles a valuable lesson about the indiscriminate killing of other species.

Musings of Apathy replied:

And the gold star goes to Splunge.  Good job with paying attention to your reference materials.  I hadn't seen that one.

Pleather Boots posted a comment on Friday 14th July 2006 7:31pm for Chapter 43: Runes and Trips

Great chapter. One thing I noticed was "only are you a Potter ancestor" wouldn't that be descendant?

Musings of Apathy replied:

That was intended to say that the potter family tree ends with him, no others.  Sort of depressing to know for a fact that you have no realatives, distant or otherwise on your father's side.

i loved the new chapter. it was cool to have harry find that he isnt a famous heir! keep up the awesome writing!

Bill the seal (intentional pun on all the work he’d just done as a seal-breaker?) was so sweet sounding. I take it that the descendant line was a little jab at other writers who have done similarly strange things to Harry’s genealogy. I still love the prank. Great chapter. More please.

Rictor posted a comment on Friday 14th July 2006 1:59pm for Chapter 43: Runes and Trips

I am curious about your wording... You said 'He was unable to find anything surprising; he didn't find that he was a descendant of all four founders or a direct descendant of the illegitimate love child of Merlin and Morganna'. Does that mean he was a descendant of all four founders and/or a direct descendant of the illegitimate love child of Merlin and Morganna and he just didn't find out, or the he wasn't but he looked just for the sake of curiousity?...On another note, love the story, hope you update more frequently.

Musings of Apathy replied:

It just means that he did not find himself to be any of those things.  He was not a descendant of all for founders.  He was not a direct descendant of the illegitimate love child of Merlin and Morganna.

It was just a small dig at other stories where he is the direct descendant of every major magic caster through history.

Thank you for reading and reviewing.
