I simply cannot put this story down, I really can't! just completely in love with it, you're an artist you are!

Great fight scene. I had to grin at Kingsley's "I apologise for the next bit in advance" to Remus. Heh.

Nice to see the distinction between Dobby and normal house elf behaviour. With Winky, too, viz her art appreciation scene in the library earlier. I'm not sure if I remember much more about the elves in the original story.

I like the little 'adjustments' you made to Harry; he's more studious, deadly serious about learning (defence) spells - a logical extrapolation from the end of OotP, where he was told that he would come up against Voldemort again - and in this chapter you've ameliorated the "time with Hermione is boring library time" stigma dating from GoF. Good to read here that he finds Hermione "rather fun". And the idea of a list, complete with scoring metric, for Harry's potential romantic partners is just classic Hermione Granger.

Fantastic. That fightscene is one of the best i've read. I can't really see your need for a remake just yet, but i guess you'll get there.
I'll be right here for that update too.

um, wow...

Thought I would read the Redux over real quick to refresh my memory, but there are major changes all over the place.

Great editing, the overall plot as has been reviled so far is much tighter than before. Hopefully this will extend through the rest of the story (I admit I was starting to get lost where the original version returned to Hogwarts.)

Ever since the first time I read YOR, I've found myself thinking of the YOR!characterizations as the definitive version for most of the HP characters because of how carefully developed they are. YOR!Shacklebolt is one of my favorite characters and the interaction between Harry and Shacklebolt has long been one of my favorite parts of YOR (though I doubt many people agree with me, because Shacklebolt doesn't follow the party line of "it isn't your fault Harry, don't feel bad about blindly running into a trap"), because I've always thought that Shacklebolt starts off thinking "this 15 year old kid runs off planning to face down Voldemort and who knows how many deatheaters...he must be arrogant, stupid, or crazy" and then as he works with Harry, he figures out that it isn't any of those things it's just that Harry simply shows no regard for himself when someone else is in danger and Shacklebolt ends up respecting him. I also enjoyed Harry's estrangement from Lupin in the first YOR when Shacklebolt stepped in and did (to my mind at least) a considerably better job being a mentor to him.

I read this a few years ago on fanfiction. I remember thinking at the time that it was perhaps the best written story that I'd come across. I saved it. Then skimmed over it a while later and couldn't remember why I thought it was so special. Now I'm really reading it again and am again hit by the freshness and originality of your writing.

This strikes me as odd because I'm so sick of Harry Angst that I could spit. I think what is so special is the dialogue. You can only slice canon and noncanon so many ways. But inside the story framework, once your characters start interacting...while they are interacting, I don't know what's going to happen next. I'm not explaining myself very well.

Anyway, I'm glad you are writing again. I enjoy reading this a lot. Thank you for going through the work of rewriting and reposting.

This was one of my favorite HP Fan Fics before your revision and as of yet, it still is. Continue the good work.

Intense to say the least, and Shack does a good sink-or-swim bit of training for Harry here, and the conversation afterwards with Hermione was interesting as well, and will be looking forward to the next part.

> Scandalous Tactics for Duelling was Harry’s hands-down favourite, however
Ah, that's where you got your "title" for the forums.

*frown* Shack, you idiot, you're assuming it's Harry's fault what happened. Okay, fine, your methods are "normal" for an Auror trainee. But Harry is under-educated for that, even if he's got the right instincts. Adjust your methods to take reality into account, would you?

The fight itself was one-sided. But there was another reason for that. If the fight had occurred at Malfoy Manor, Harry would have cheerfully used destructive spells and come closer to evening things out, methinks.

*laugh* Go, Dobby!

> Hermione beamed. “I am rubbing off on you.”
Now there's a double maybe triple entendre.

Her looking for his "true love". Man, the irony is dripping of of this. Ought to be amusing to watch at any rate.

Shacklebolt needs tobe spanked HARD. Seriously.
