Oh Great prank and what a turn around for The Prakster! Very classy. Thanks for writing this one! pms

Yeah for Hermione & Ginny & The Grangers! I'm so glad Ginny punched Dudley. Serves him right. Of course Harry over did it again! Some times he needs a witness to his "stuff" to protect him from himself! Ginny will see to that I'm sure. Thanks for writing such an entertaining chapter. pms

I'm enjoying your story a lot. I'm in Iraq right now, and because I have to pay for interent time, I just copy the story down chapter by chapter onto a flash drive in Microsoft Word Format and read it on one of the computers in my room. I can't wait to read more.

I am glad to hear that there is a way to retrieve stories for reading.   I am also glad that you are enjoying my story.   Thank you for reading and taking the time to review.

I especially liked the last line.

I wish I could get that kind of reaction from at least one girl . . . . my age that is . . . getting that reaction from a friend's mum would be downright scary . . .

Most fanfiction doesn't make Ron into an independent prankster, if he is a prankster at all. Yours does so. Harry's reaction to his prank was choice, delicious, and a wonderful revenge up to this point.

However, whatever the revenge Harry and Ginny will let slip on the brothers, continues to escalate in forcefulness as you develop this tale.

You are building towards a monumental explosion.

Can't wait.

Musings of Apathy replied:

Someday, when I get to the revenge chapter, I will have to flesh it out a bit, but yes, come the holidays there will be an answer.

Nice, love the story was reading it on Fanfiction and was wondering where it went. And so it Accends into the hall of the gods of Fanfiction.

Musings of Apathy replied:

Thank you for following me to this site.

"And so it Accends into the hall of the gods of Fanfiction."

That seems like an accurate paraphrase of my reaction when I received an e-mail from Tim Joy inviting me to join the site.   I had to answer him with concern that I was not prolific enough to join.   I studiously did not mention that I didn't consider myself good enough for this group of authors, trying not to look a gift horse in the mouth.   Tim answered that they valued quality over quantity, and so here I am.   I decided instantly that I wanted to make this story worthy of the company, or as close to as I could.   That is why I am in a re-write/re-edit with some great Beta's helping me out.   It has been a good experience.

Hysterical - a author of a book on Numerology/Arithmancy by the name of 'von Toothree.' Oh, clever indeed.

You've made Harry quite the romantic. Ron is unfortunately still Ron in all his dense glory.

Great read.

Musings of Apathy replied:

Ron is a character that I tend to love and hate for the same reason.   I love how dense he is, but I hate how he is not worthy of Hermione when he is like that.   My solution was to have him slowly change.   The fact that he is a supporting character gave me the patience to wait for the slow change, something I could not do on Harry.   I leave that for the better writers.

This was one of the better 'tell-off-the-Dursleys' I have ever read.

And the information Harry assimilated while asleep in the infirmary was a very clever way to portray this.

I highly value 'clever.'

Musings of Apathy replied:

Thank you.   That means a lot.   I had to contend with a laziness on my part, not wanting to come up with and write out an entire block of Hermione's railings, and an opinion that if it got too long, it would be boring.   I also did not believe that Hermione would do anything that I have seen before like changing them into pigs and hipos.   That just doesn't fit her personality, at least not the Hermione I wanted to write.

good chapter update soon

Patches posted a comment on Tuesday 28th March 2006 1:23pm

A very good chapter. I like the way Harry put Draco down in the defense club. I really like the image of Harry in a suit and Ginny in a "little red dress"! Ron's response is classic. I thought Harry handled it beautifully. It's nice to see Harry helping others. Thank you for writing. pms

Musings of Apathy replied:

Thank you.   I had to come up with a way for the club to be open without infiltration of the worse elements.   Thank you for appreciating the method that I used.

you forgot to say harry lives on earth!

Musings of Apathy replied:

That is what I meant by "Terra".

Please, if you dislike my writing as much as you obviously do, do not read it.   If you feel compelled to read it, don't try to make my life bleaker by sharing your thoughts on the matter.   I like constructive criticism, but what you have been giving me attacks the bones of the story.   If you can't agree with the bones of a story, there is no basis for enjoyment.   Constructive criticism starts with agreeing with the framework of the story and helping to build a better story from it.   I will not change my work as fundementally as you have stated the necessity for, in a large part because of my not agreeing with your statements.   View this as an oportunity to spend your time on presuits that will bring you more enjoyment and me less frustration.

I invite you to write the perfect Harry Potter FanFiction, as I, obviously, have not.

lordblack posted a comment on Tuesday 28th March 2006 1:13pm

You know there are a lot of stories out there so similar to this one. you realy need something to show yours is different. Most stories go like this-

*harry's abused
*harry gets powers
*harry falls in love with ginny overnight
*harrys trained by dumbledore
*everything is goody-goody with harry and the weaslys
*somehow, miraculosly, harry defeats voldemort
*they live happily ever after.

get real.

Musings of Apathy replied:

Wow, if there are so many stories out there like this one, why are you spending so much of your energy reviewing it?   If I hated a story as much as you obviously do, I would cease to read it.   Seriously, I am not going to change my mind and erase a 130,000 word story from my hard drive because it is similar to so many others.   You know what, it is also similar to Half Blood Prince in some ways, too.   Does that make it a bad story? There is a reason so many authors have written that series of events, they fit to canon.   To come up with something truly original, you would have to ignore canon or just quit FanFiction writing all together and write an original work.   I don't want to write my own book, so I do this...FOR FUN.   I am not being paid for my time doing this, nor is any of the other writers that you have read.   Please show them some respect and not   read their stories and act like it took no work to write.   If you don't like it, or find it too cliche, don't read it.

And the war is going to begin when?

lordblack posted a comment on Tuesday 28th March 2006 1:01pm

and ginny would know what Harodds is because...
- did the order rent a ministry car? I mean I doubt they just let anyone use them.

Musings of Apathy replied:

Ginny could know what Harrods was, because it is not stated in canon that she is an idiot.   Too much is often assumed that the younger wizards and witches know absolutely nothing about muggles.   Ginny could very well have some experience talking to people that have shopping experience outside of the few clothing shops available to witches in the British wizarding world.   I am still within canon on this issue because JKR has never stated that Ginny grew up locked in the cellar.   You may just be assuming that Ginny, a girl, has the interest in clothing and the knowledge of the muggle world as her brother Ron, a boy.   One example to show this false would be:   Have you ever read, in canon, where Ginny makes the same ignorant mispronunciations as Ron or Mr. Weasley?   Knowing the existance and quality of Harrods is very minor for a teenage girl, witch or not, that is growing up in England.

First, why can't it be a ministry car?   Harry has several off duty Aurors on his escort, his travel plans were arranged by the Head of the Wizengamot and the Minister himself would want to be on Harry's good side after a whole year of defamation.   This is unimportant stuff, why latch onto it?   If you don't like my story, I am not forcing you to read.

I don't cuss alot but I'm going to now...
Stop using the {explative deleted by Admin} work TRAINING! he is learning things that will benefit his life! not abso {explative deleted by Admin} lutly, not just training for one battle with tom! Stop it {explative deleted by Admin} it! stop it!

Musings of Apathy replied:

Please, do not cuss in reviews.

At this moment, Harry is training for one thing.   His destiny.   He has a destiny, told through prophecy, to defeat Voldemort or die trying.   When you are learning in one particular field, it would be best described as training.   If his TRAINING benefits his later life, all the better.   For his own benefit, I hope that he doesn't ever have to come toe-to-toe with another Dark Lord, but his life may turn out that way, if, of course, I write it that way, as this is my story.   I give, of course, proper applause and credit to J.K. Rowling for inventing the characters and world and allowing FanFiction writers to explore their creative side with them, but, once I started to write this story, I was the one controling what this particular Harry would be doing for the rest of his life.
