When I realised the content that would be covered in this chapter I, like a coward, exited your AU . I dreaded the consequences of the astronomy tower. I guess Harry’s Voldemort connection exerted its influence over him on this night. Allowing Dumbledore to live, and for Draco to receive help if asked for, makes so much sense. And shows a great deal of compassion for the Draco character. But, where was Snape? Keeping his true alliance hidden for now? 😉. Thank you for saving Dumbledore. I had completely forgotten about a Hokey. I wonder at Harry’s retrieval of Bellatrix’s wand. Something up your sleeve? 😉. Thanks for allaying my fears for Dumbledore . Looking forward to my questions being answered over the coming chapters . Thank you for writing this inspired and imaginative book.

I would like to think that the pack will hear the words of wisdom spoken by Charlie et al. But, I think humility will come at a high price for that lot. Wonderful chapter. Thank you so much for writing
Date: 12 Jan 2018 10:32 PM Title: Chapter 27 - Dolores Umbridge.
Thank you for this wonderful update. I, as much as I loath her, have always thought the Pink Peril needed a bit more of an airing in the Potter Universe. She’s not really they type to blend into the background. Would have paid real money to see her reaction to losing the pendant. Lol. Again thank you. My Saturday has started off perfectly.

I do hope they rescue those poor kittens that Umbridge, I'm sure, has kidnapped and trapped her plates!
Nice of Newt to give Edward his swooping evil!
I'm sure the vamps will enjoy Isle Esme! :-)
Great chapter! Happy New Year!

Brilliant. Nice to read about Aberforth. The image of Mundungus as a buxom blonde...😂 . I wonder why the horcrux affected Edward so badly. Will Bellatrix and fenrir, if the vanishing cabinet is repaired, exit as doll sized figures? Thoroughly enjoyed reading this chapter. I hope you are well. Thank you for updating
Date: 21 Oct 2017 9:02 PM Title: Chapter 23 - If Vampires could faint.
Oh. Wonderful. So exciting. And, in particular, relieved by Esme's quick action in regards to the escape. Beautifully written, well executed and tight plot. Believable characters (leaving out the vamps/shapeshifting /magic stuff of course😀).Thanks for a wonderful update.
Date: 20 Oct 2017 1:09 PM Title: Chapter 23 - If Vampires could faint.
God I love this story. This feels so hard waiting for the next chapter...I just want it all now now now. It makes me so happy when a new chapter shows up. I am one of thosepeople that when I get a new book I read it streight through. I was one of the people who went to the bookstors and waited in line at midnight for the next Harry Potter book to come out. If I could transform I would be a dragon or a tiger myself. Thanks for all your hard work.
Date: 13 Oct 2017 11:17 PM Title: Chapter 22 - Things to do in Volterra when you're dead.
Oh. Oh! OH!!! What a chapter! What a surprise! Oh My! Thrilling! This chapter could have been 50,000 words long and still it couldn't be long enough to satisfy every ounce of wonder and curiosity. I am flabbergasted. You've made my week. Thank you.
Date: 30 Sep 2017 12:01 PM Title: Chapter 20 - Surprising Allies.
Another remarkable and surprising chapter. There is so much info contained here. We seem to be moving further from the original HP (even though I do love HP this is not a bad thing) and it is exciting to see where you'll take us. Leah and Seth's quick arrival and easy acceptance also surprised. Loved every word. Thank you
Date: 24 Sep 2017 10:50 PM Title: Chapter 19 -Feeling Lucky.
Another wonderful chapter. We've covered quite alot of territory in this update but there is a lot of info too. Cormac is showing himself as a wa***r supremeo. Those scenes in the movie, where Ron is trying out for goalkeeper, always crack me up. It reads to me that Carlisle is still searching for the 'right' cure for Dumbledore's hand. You know Rose will, one day, have to bring the wizarding world into the space age. That should keep her occupied. So many problems so much time... ;D
Looking forward to seeing what Dumbledore has to say on Emmett's solution to the vanishing cabinet and the deatheater incursion. Another thoroughly enjoyable and brilliant chapter. Thank you for updating.
Date: 18 Sep 2017 6:03 AM Title: Chapter 18 – First strike.
This was a surprising chapter. May I say 'WOW!!!'? So exciting. Bias yes, but I love to see the wolves whipped. Can't imagine Paul in 'anger management '. Is Sam beginning to realise their lack of knowledge and how dangerous that is? Won't the volturi add the wizards and dragon together with the disappearance of the Cullens and come up with 'let's join forces with Voltie' ? I can't imagine any long term alliance with the vamps would suit Voltie. Only he can be immortal and therefore unique.Regardless, of how this is going to play out, this chapter deserves another ABSOLUTELY BLOOM'N BRILLIANT. Thank you
Date: 14 Sep 2017 7:12 AM Title: Chapter 13– summer sun and an update from Charlie.
I'm glad it was Paul! That's hilarous! :-) I'm glad they sorted out the dogs and freed the imprints and that Charlie's going to not let the Alice thing go! :-) And good for Leah! ;-)
Date: 14 Sep 2017 6:41 AM Title: Chapter 1 - A Vision
Thank you for the explanation! :-)
BTW, in case you were wondering, Alexis (Theadosia57) recommended this story. I probably wouldn't have thought about reading it were it not for her. I'm glad she recommended it! :-)
Date: 11 Sep 2017 10:09 PM Title: Chapter 1 - A Vision
If Bella was a witch and over the age of 17, why didn't she "stupefy" and "obliviate" the Port Angeles rapists and "incendio" James? Just saying . . .
Good questions, my thinking is this. At that time her relationship with Edward was very new and hot and cold, in my AU while she knew what he was he didn't know her secret. With her magical abilities I would think she had an inkling that he would follow her, so the need to 'obliviated' the no_Maj/juggle would be rapists would inadvertently reveal her secret to Edward. I'm sure she would've kicked add had he not turned up. As for James, at that time she had an on going argument about being changed and I feel that in keeping to her character would have potentially used James to force that issue, again had Edward and the Cullens not arrived she would've no doubt kicked ass here too. Immature ? Yes but a lot of her 17 year old actions where.
Date: 09 Sep 2017 3:02 AM Title: Chapter 17– A vampire calls.
I rather like Slughorn's resemblance to a niffler. Lol. And the caterwaul charm...what a scream! ;D I wonder, if the brothers gain access to the room of requirement will they smell the evil emanating from the diadem? Too soon? Hopefully they'll find or sniff out the vanishing cabinet. So excited as I really can't figure out, except in very broad brushstrokes, what you have planned. Thank you
Date: 09 Sep 2017 12:51 AM Title: Chapter 16 – Trains, visions and cocky teenagers.
Simply wonderful. Your use of humour, in parts, lightened the tone and released some of the stress. Portable swamps. Only the Weasleys! Lol. I'm guessing that Dumbledore will not experience the ongoing contamination from the Riddle Ring. So very good. Thank you
Date: 08 Sep 2017 10:21 PM Title: Chapter 17– A vampire calls.
Wonderful. Just love the way you play and weave your plot through the original. Always enhancing never detracting. Gotta go back and read again. Thank you so very much for this much appreciated and unexpected update.
Date: 02 Sep 2017 1:59 PM Title: Chapter 16 – Trains, visions and cocky teenagers.
Absolutely bloody marvellous, loving this strong Edward and Emmett's closing comment pure gold, you are without a doubt one hell of a talented writer, integrating them seamlessly, I doff my cap to you xx Alexis
Date: 02 Sep 2017 5:53 AM Title: Chapter 16 – Trains, visions and cocky teenagers.
In my excitement I totally missed Emmett's closing comment. Lol. Truly love this chapter. I hope they, Bellatrix and Draco, don't target Nessie. Anyhow, now that you've completed this chapter, no pressure or anything but just to let you know, I'm already looking forward to the next update. Thank you for writing.
Date: 02 Sep 2017 3:39 AM Title: Chapter 16 – Trains, visions and cocky teenagers.
I have no words to describe how fantastic this chapter was to read. Reminiscent of the excitement and anticipation associated with the end of a year long wait to read the next HP book. In the words of Ronald Weasley 'Bloody Brilliant'. From the Volturi and the growing threat to Charlie and the dumb mutt. Grandpa Newt's involvement, perhaps, in the ultimate sanctuary for the Cullens. To Emmett's destruction of the Riddle Ring (so hoping that Emmett isn't in any danger from the Essence of Voltemort). Wondering if Dumbledore's health won't be an issue and how that plays into the Elder Wand and everything you've got planned in that regard. Or not. Oh, and not forgetting Malfoy's imperius spell on Crabbe and Goyle. 'That's a trip to Azkarban that is' (channeling Hagrid there) if they could prove it. So exciting. Totally b***dy Brilliant. Hyperbole? Not a word of it!!! Gotta have another read. Forgive the spelling. Thanks. Can I only give 10 stars? Drat!
Date: 30 Aug 2017 5:11 AM Title: Chapter 15 – A Visit.
Wonderful chapter. This chapter does raise a number of questions about the volturi their search and any magical abilities. Also the mutts and will they further draw the attention of the volturi. Seth and Leah? Just a lot of titbits . Will the volturi notice something different about Charlie. So good thank you.
I wanted to respond to this as you've been incredibly supportive since I started posting this story. So thank you for that, I get a real boost when I see that even one person enjoys my efforts. As for your questions, good grief I'm so mean, but I'm going to leave you hanging, because I don't want to give too much away and I know that if I answer them I will as I tend to get wordy. Lets just say, there are things afoot. <wink wink>
Date: 30 Aug 2017 2:30 AM Title: Chapter 14 - Swooping Evil, Caipora and Brazilian wizard shops.
A question. How far out and high up does the concealment charm cover Isle Esme? Thoroughly enjoyable chapter. Thank you
As far as my understanding of concealment charms goes, the charm used on Isle Esme, essentially makes it entirley invisble to anyone not shown the island by the secret keeper (Charlie). It much the same way that Hogwarts, the hogwarts express and various other magical destinations are hidden from Muggles, although in those examples they're not covered by the need for secret keepers as I expect they used a disillusionment charm along with a Muggle repellant charm. According to JK and also the HP Wiki, Concealment Charms (incantation unknown) are spells used to conceal things from view and to obfuscate inherent magical properties of objects. Also In the 15th century, evil wizard Ekrizdis placed concealment charms onto his personal fortress Azkaban to conduct his Muggle tortures in privacy. After his death, the charms faded away, allowing authorities to acknowledge the island's existence for the first time.
So using that as my guide, I work on the premis that the whole island essentially disappears.

Love this chapter. I am actively trying to tame my comments about the mutts. Aggressive hatred is not conducive to having a balanced view. They,however, may loom large in the future with the prophecy and the libertines. But would you trust their input? Protectors of others or themselves? Thank you for writing
Date: 28 Aug 2017 9:43 PM Title: Chapter 3 - Moving on.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading this again. Just a small thing that bothers me each time. The cave, the family observes the Denali's from, is 80 miles away. That's seems too far over the horizon. Edward's reading distance, according to some, maxs out around 10 miles for family. So he wouldn't be able to read the approach of the Denali's nor their reactions to the destroyed house. Perhaps 8 miles for the cave would fit in better with canon. Either way I love this story. Thanks again.
LOL well spotted, I actually had written 8 miles in my original draft, but typed 80 when transfering it here. I've now fixed that. I would like to think that with age and growing stabilty/familiarity Edwards reading distance would continue to grow, although even I can see 80 miles would stretch it.
Date: 11 Aug 2017 10:29 PM Title: Chapter 13– summer sun and an update from Charlie.
I have to agree with Edward's stance on the lesson taught to Coyle. But don't we all do things, in retrospect, that could have used better judgement. Loved that Charlie was present for a end of year wind down. If you ever decide to do an outtake please consider doing Charlie's lessons with the pack and the elders. That would be fun to read. Loved every word. Thank you so much for updating. Don't be surprised if I do another re-read. :) Still can't get a notification of updates from this site. Um. Tis' a puzzlement.
