I haven't read this series since 2011 and I only made it to Ch 1 of Surpassing Danger. (I got lost during the gap between uploading Ch 1 and 2, it seems.) I'm going to re-read the whole series though, starting on this wonderful long weekend. I remember really enjoying it, and really enjoying your take on the characters. I do remember that [SPOILERS] I was nervous about seeing Ginny wind up on Sixteen and Pregnant [/SPOILERS] so I can't wait to see what you did with that or how you got around it! Yay, now I settle in to begin my re-read. :)

THis is a return visit to an old favorite. Partly because I've been trying to find where Danger explains how she got her nickname. I think it had something to do with rollerskates, but beyond that...

I also have the impression that Anne carefully never specified what happened on that day when Gertrude was 11.

I'm also looking through the DV AUs for a story I vaguely remember, in which a copy of the canon shows up in the Griffindor common room, and the Maurauders (including Peter and his girlfriend) are reacting to it.

Curse my failing memory!

Heya Anne, love your works. Just one question, do Muggles in 1982 Britain actually have the resources in their Animal Control departments to take down a fully grown Lycanthrope (Werewolf) in it's Lycan form? Something Wizards can only reliably do with Silver blades or a certain green tinged spell...

So... Remus is an heir of the founders?

Would that make Sirius the father of the Ravenclaw heir?

And supposing those two are true, it would logically follow that Neville Longbottom is the heir of Hufflepuff, non?

And of course, Tom Riddle is Slytherin's heir, but I guess Luna could become a Slytherin heir through some blood thingy--really it would only make sense that way, don't you think?

Hi!

I have read this story multiple times, and I decided that on this reread I want to comment on each chapter. Thus:

I adore this chapter. I can recite the first two sections completely from memory, I've read it so many times. It is the start of this wonderful story (and inspiration to a couple of others) but it also stands beautifully on its own merit. It isn't too fast; yes, a lot happens, but you would never guess at where the plot is going from this chapter alone, which I think is a really valuable thing. I love, also, the way you work Remus' inner thoughts so well into the story. The pauses are just long enough. For example, these two sentences: "Several loose parts of his world were starting to fall into place. Specifically, the 'Sirius would never betray Lily and James' part, and the 'Peter doesn’t strike me as the martyr type' part." They would take just long enough to think that I can picture Danger walking away to get the prophecy and coming back. Seamless. <3 I've always admired that about your work.

And here I am again! :D

Once more, I applaud your style. I suppose to some, it might seem like you're rushing into things, but as someone who has read the entire series, sort of, I will say right now that I love the way you kicked things off. We start with Remus, who is living closer to Harry than he realised, being as miserable as the depressing weather, and then he meets Danger, and she's looking after Harry, and knows far more than anyone really should or could, and her dreams... I love her dreams, honestly. Especially when she revealed that Sirius wasn't the traitor! And of course the prophecy poem was awesome, but I think I told you that on FFN. :D

Still love this story, your style, your characters and what you did with Jo's, and will now proceed to the next chapter!

Alright, I'm meant to be on study leave, but this story has suckered me in again! Two questions - what colour hair did Remus's parents have? And how in the world did you ever think an idea this big would fit into a ten chapter story? :)

I'm starting over at the beginning now that I've read the most recent chapter of the most recent story. I'd like to review after each chapter to tell you how much I enjoy your story, but I'll probably be five or ten chapters in before I remember I'm supposed to again. Thanks for writing!

Beginning another reread of the best harry potter fanfic universe. I can't wait to experience it all again!

I love this story - it's one I come back to and reread every so often. It starts off in such an odd place, where the reader has no idea what is going to happen, and you are able to construct such a complex word, with such great original characters. One of the greats in the HP fandom!

It has been much much too long since I read these stories last, since it's all pinging as brand new, just about, rather than as familiar.

Wee cubs are adorable.

Is the "revew [sic] and go to next chapter" button not working, or just not working for me?

OMG, I was just re-reading everything of DV (yes, I know, lots of reading to do,but I have to keep busy while you type up all kinds of magically wonderful stories ;)) and I tripped mentally over the first poem ever. When they who saved the savior twine

The freshest blood with founders’ line,

Then has the age of hope begun,

And peace comes to the man who won.

If that means what I think it means, than DV isn't ready to be anywhere near finished until Danger gets pregnant. Right? Since she's the freshest blood (Muggle)? But then that would mean that Remus is linked with the Founders' line... It can't be Sirius and Letha because Letha is the one with the Founders' blood and Sirius can't really be called 'fresh blood'... And it's either them or Danger and Remus... OMG! OMG!!!!

(sorry for the rather hysterical review. I'm kinda excited suddenly :D)

Wow! I've read fanfic for years, and I've always avoided this one, because, frankly, it always sounded corny. But I just read the first chapter while I'm waiting for my date to call.... and holy shit! I don't remember the last time a first chapter got me excited about a story the way this one did.

I really look forward to seeing where you go with this!

Hello! Just started reading your works. I've heard good things, and so far I like what I see. I foresee many sleepless nights reading your stories. =)

I like it, first chapter has drawn me in, what in my experience is a good sign that I will enjoy the rest of the fic. I'm looking forward to reading the rest.

...so I'll just leave little notes here and there. *huggles poor Remus* It's fun reading this from the end. XD

This is a killer of an opening.
Granger... the little girl is Hermione... ne-ne Neenie... ?
And Hermione has an older sister with... prophetic dreams? And far-sighted dreams? Wow.
I love the way you write this. Remus is just despondent in his internal monologue, which is so like him. And then he sees Harry and it's just autopilot to run to him and get involved with him again, so of course he's willing to talk with this girl. I believe all of it.
And this line in particular is really compelling - "Several loose parts of his world were starting to fall into place. Specifically, the "Sirius would never betray Lily and James" part, and the "Peter doesn’t strike me as the martyr type" part." The way you keep the language references constant I guess: you say that "parts" are coming together, so you refer to the particular belief-concepts as "parts". Very compelling and awesome.

That prophecy must be really confusing to them, but not quite so much to us: The first bit is the pairings for the story, H/G and R/Hr? (alack, I've become partial to H/Hr) The rat is obvious, and he's with the Weasley's, so that's "red"? Cat... McGonagall didn't believe the treachery? In PoA she was bewildered by it, but she did believe it just like everyone else... grim is obvious... "truth" is this aletha who's mentioned in the summary (that's cheating, oops) b/c aletha is really close to the Greek root for true, so they need her to help them rescue Sirius? "wolf that runs in brightest dark" is a full-moon wolf, werewolf, that's Remus, and that's a fabulous turn of phrase to describe him, "in danger" should read "in Danger" b/c 'danger' is the only word that could be referenced by 'she' in the subsequent lines... although it would also be really cool if that line meant something about actually ?conjuring? fires out "of" bravery rather than fear or some such... "his mind is whole" so he doesn't want to commit suicide anymore? I feel like "twine" could be used archaically to mean "two", unless that was a similar but other word, in which case it would enumerate "they" at the beginning of the line, but that would leave the sentence without a predicate. So "twine" means 'tie the knot', marry? Having saved Harry, they can marry him to... a muggleborn?... Hermione, perhaps? then the first couplet means something else... and yea, if they do it right then everyone lives happily ever after. Cool. This is like the way Shakespeare would open his plays with a quick plot summary so everyone would be able to follow along?
