The subject of religion and the wizarding world comes up on occasion, and seems to have followers on both side.

Personally, I am very active in my religion. Yet, I don't see a conflict between wizards and religion.

Wizards, to me, are just ordinary people with an extraordinary skill. I don't see them as devil worshippers, or evil automatically. Sure, there are some rites that in and of themselves are satanic, but at least the stories I have read did not engender wizards as using these rites.

Interesting thought process though, and I loved the chapter.

Musings of Apathy replied:

I feel the same way about religion and wizardry, but I thought to paint this character with an all to common brush of prejudice and bigotry that, while he claims it is religious in nature, really is about anything but.

Thank you for reading and responding to my story.

Nice way to protect the Runic Transport System. Good job there!

I really liked Harry's prank. That was very inventive to have it tied to caloric input.

Great chapter.

Great chapter. I have a feeling he's going to give Remus the fairy tale cottage. :)

I loved this chapter and hope for a update in the near future! I don't know if this is the first time I've reviewed your story or not, if not, I have to say you do a very very,wondeful, colourful, story!

So will Harry give this fairy tale cottage to Remus and Tonks? This was a wonderful chapter. Thank you ever so much.

Great chapter! But the wrapping paper moments were a bit much. You didn't put in the Weasley and girlfriend's reaction to the necklaces Harry made. I would have liked to see that.
I loved all the reactions about the family finding them sleeping together. It was great. I can't wait to see how Harry gets back at the twins for waking him up with a bucket of water. And then Ginny not letting Hermione tell Harry he should put clothes on was so classic, perfect and very cannon. What did Harry get Ginny? Was it mentioned before? I like what Ginny got him it was sweet and thoughtful.
Ok another little critic - I can't see Remus "gushing" over anything. That whole ending there on Remus' part didn't sound right. He just sounded OC. But it was just a little scene so I can overlook it and see what you were trying to get accross.

Another great chapter and I eagerly await the next :o)

Hmmmm I'd like to say this was a good chapter, but the truth be told I'm going to have to completely reread this story before I can say one way or the other. It's been so long since this moved forward I've forgotten most of the storyline. :)

Maybe I'll review again in a few days after I've reread the story. :)

Musings of Apathy replied:

I'm glad to have you back on board.   There has been some minor changes to the story that don't know if you will notice after so long or not.   A few scenes were added to cover some things.   I hope that you enjoy it.

I'm glad to see your latest chapter. But the bittersweetness is that you will no longer post on SIYE where I have been following this story. I'm sorry to see you go. Good luck in your future writing. Tom

A very sweet chapter, very nice.

One comment Bill W's name is not William it is Bilius. Yuck.


Musings of Apathy replied:

I think that you may be right about Bill's real name, considering Ron's middle name, but I could not find any reference in canon.   I checked both on the lexicon and at JKR's official site.   If I ever find a canon reference, I will change his name where ever it appears in my story.   I am sure that it is in more than just this last chapter.

Thank you for reading and reviewing.

Excellent explanation about why Harry has problems with Floo and Portkey travel.

Brilliant, actually. Those few who have tried to explain it before either come up with lame excuses or say that Harry is too powerful to travel those simple ways. I've liked some of these, but yours is quit unique in it' simplicity and logic.

Although I am never too pleased with believers made into religious fanatics, this was an excellent chapter in all ways.

Well done.

Musings of Apathy replied:

Thank you.   I like to find the simplest explanation for most problems.   Ackham's Razor and all.   I have liked some of the stories where it is explained that Harry's extra power overpowers the floo, causing his unstable exit; namely 'Hope', but in this case, I found the quick and clean to be best.

As far as religious zealots, we have all seen too many, and will never see the last.   That part of the scene just seemed to write itself once I was able to start his dialog.   After that I had to shake it out of my head and step away from the computer.   I hope to never have to go back into that character again.   As far as believers go, this man was beyond a believer, he was a zealot that forgot about not judging.   We forget that we do not know all.

Thank you for reading and responding.
