Hey, this has to do with Hermione's comment on Harry's 'saving people thing' , right?
Oh man, I'm so observant.
Excellence. I was singing the whole time. Really. That's just the way I am. Heh.

Perfect. Really is perfect at capturing it. The perfect words.

That was good! It really did sum up Harry- how he just runs to save people, as if by instinct... although it has got him into trouble at times. I especially liked Nevilles part:
"He'll stand up for a giant
Who's already eight feet tall "
lol. Very Neville.

Hi, you emailed me your info so I'd know it for filk related stuff, but due to an unfortunate accident (aka, my computer dying) I lost it. Could you please, please, Please send it again? This time, I'm making a hard copy, lol.

Bravo, Bravo. Encour. It would be awesome if you could write out the tune, but even without it, It's fun to make up your own.

^^ What can I say, it's quite good. Not my favorite of your works, but still excellent.

Reviewer: PussyKatDate: 2004-08-18
Reviewid: 97821Chapter: 1
Lol, I loved that very much indeed! Very impressive. Amusing but you know it's all true, too. Particularly appealing to me as I am a die-hard fan of Harry's, so it's interesting to see all these points of view on him. I particularly liked it when Neville sang "He'll stand up for a giant who's already eight feet tall". I don't know, that line really struck a chord in me.
The rhythm and rhyming were perfect as well, keep up the great work!

*Blows out the candle*
Blessed Be,

P.S: I have that chorus going round my head now, it'll be there all day.

This fits a sort of music known as Filk. Filk is often parody, but is also original fan music from different Genres, such as Sci-Fi or Fantasy. There are many wonderful and moving Filks out there, and I feel this is an excellent example of what those sort of Filks are like. is a Filk Con in Atlanta. I'd like to know if I could possibly show some of your stuff to some friends of mine at the filk, and perhaps we could sing it, with proper credit being given, of course. Please Email me, I won't do anything without your permission, but your songs are so accurate and moving, they really should be shared.
Thanks, Emily.

Wow! You've really captured perfectly both Harry and the way his friends feel about him. I'm impressed! You have a good sense of rhythm, too--good job.

Reviewid: 91987Chapter: 1
Intriguing style and one I haven't seen used in fanfic before. It works beautifully though. Reminiscent of a Greek Chorus, it conveys a very real feeling of (for lack of a better word) drama to the piece. Your words are absolutely fitting and the images they bring forth are great. I can picture exactly how this would be played, as well as the boy they are singing about. Very well done!

Oh my... this song is just so touching. It really depicts how Harry really is. If anybody doesn't understand why Harry is just the way he is... this is the answer for it. I love it! My favourite part, "He'll avoid your eyes and shrug / With that funny look of his" Very Harry. You know him very welk. Great job!

I usually dont like to read stuff like this, but yours is something that i applaud.i really liked it alot, and think this describes harry VERY well.

Reviewer: NarumiDate: 2004-07-10
Reviewid: 91698Chapter: 1
I love this! It's really great. The rhyming isn't cheesy, and yet it's sincere- something that a lot of authors have trouble with. I also really like how the final parts sung in the chorus match up exactly with who's singing them- and they all still fit in at the beginning, and throughout the whole song. You should write more of these, you're good at it!

Reviewer: NicoleDate: 2004-07-10

Reviewer: RaneDate: 2004-07-06
Reviewid: 90879Chapter: 1
That was really sweet: a nice, quick feel-good read! I'm feeling a bit bad right now though, because I've just seen the new psting suggestions above the fields and I really don't have much constructive to say... oops. I guess the only thing is that it would've been kind of cool if you could've had a couple additional verses; it ended a tad abruptly - no big deal though.

Very nice work!

I read this originally when it first came out and it actually made me tear up. I didn't review it then because I was busy but I thought I should come back and say that this is REALLY REALLY good. Thank you for writing something that explains Harry (and his friends' love for him) so beautifully.

Reviewer: dhvaniDate: 2004-05-26

Back again. Your stuff is still wonderful... and I'm still wondering WHY YOU AREN'T ON THE PROFESSORS BOOKSHELF YET!!!! You're way too good to be a nameless nobody... but the thing is, you AREN'T a nobody! Do you know how many people came back and read this too when they saw your name on the update list because they remembered how great Afterwards was?! You are very very worthy. Great job.

When I saw Ron singing I almost ran away
But thankfully I didn't - as you guessed, I stayed
And, gosh, I'm glad I did 'cos by the end, you see
I was grinning just like a happy augurey
(And that's pretty rare!)
Well done. Harry to a tee. (Er- sorry about the song!)

Hahahaha, I LOVE IT!!!!!I've already made up a tune in my head, and I'm humming it, driving poeple crazy!!!! Are you R/H? If you are, do a song on how Ron feels about Hermionie. Something about she's always in the library.....

Normally, I avoid all song-fics. However, this caught my attention, and I like it. Sometimes, scantion is a problem, but not horribly so.

Reviewer: LouDate: 2004-05-24
Reviewid: 84290Chapter: 1
Love it! Are you a professional songwriter? If not, you could've fooled me. You get to the essence of Harry -- his selfless, automatic heroism -- and I love it that by the end of the song the chorus is reflecting a little bit about each singer's personality. Wonderful stuff!

Reviewer: EmilyDate: 2004-05-24
Reviewid: 84289Chapter: 1
Oooh! Brilliant! Really, a great song, because it is So accurate. I can sort of see them, a la Buffy the musical, sort of standing around in the same dim room, maybe talking to each other, maybe not, the angle turning so each of them has their face highlighted when it's their turn, and the camera pulls back for the chorus. V. Cool, V. Good.

Oh, that was simply wonderful. I read your other song and adored it (saved it to my computer, in fact) and I'm definitely adding this to the collection. I can't decide which verses I like best--they're all too good. I hope to see many, many more of these from you!

Oh. My. Merlin. This was just as awesome as the last one, and it describes everything just as well. I don't understand how you can take these words, and form them into something so beautiful that truly makes sense and describes everything so wonderfully! Merlin, it's crazy! (As in a good way.)

I really love your songs - they're so beautiful - and I'm glad to know that you wrote another one! Keep writing - you do such a fabulous job!

When I saw your name under the "update list" I clicked immediately because I remembered your first piece....and this is so good! I especially love Nevilles and yes....I cried again......*sobs*

Ahh, when I saw your name again on the recent posts list, I immediately clicked on it because I knew it had to be good. You've earned a special place in my heart with Afterwards. I'm never going to forget your name (which is oober cool, btw). You're great at these songs and such and you can make such natural rhymes! Both of your song things you've posted so far are beautiful... THIS one didn't make me cry, but it did make me feel all achey and touched. It's lovely. You're an awesome song-writer or poem-writer or whatever you call these things you do, and I'm keeping watch for later works! Keep writing please, because you rock and your stuff is really great. It sort of gets to me, you know? Great work.

Is this to an existing song?

I' d say Hermione's is the weakest of the verses, but the others are great, especially the Hagrid analogy and Neville's, which is very poetic.

LOVE! Fabulous work; where most people fail to even make a point in HP songs or poems, you soar to success. I like the work with the chorus a lot, giving each character an appropriate line to sing.

This is just a suggestion, but maybe you could do a romantic one next? A sonnet between Ron and Hermione? It's just a suggestion, I'm sure whatever you decided to do next will be as excellent as these two have been.
