one of the cutest fics i've had a chance to read :)

Yes, but what about the part where "Harmony" becomes Minister of Magic???

The Fic, Bedtime story's needs to be continued. Now
that we know the real players.I really think that
it would be nice to get them to confess to their
son and tell Him their real names and to inform him
that he is a young wizzard. But the fic is a very well
written story .Please continue with it if you can.

This is a very enjoyable read, Please continue with
it as this could be very exciting. firstly to have
a son and be the Son of Harry and Ginny Potter.
That is quite Fantastic. Please continue

Aw, that's cute! Would it be a bad thing for me to admit that a few years ago I used to imagine the books were real as well?

Reviewer: RachelDate: 2005-10-16
Reviewid: 134614Chapter: 1
Aww, so sweet! I love the ending to the canon - "But this was now a different world. A world where they didn't fear for their lives. A world where Harry Potter would always be 'the Boy Who Lived' ...with or without his scar." Fabulous!

Good, but I think it would have been interesting and cooler if they were the HP charecters but changed their names so no one would find them...that ii just me though....

LOL. Simply brilliant! And Henry Gardner?! LOL.

Love the names!

Nice job!

Ingenius, I love the idea. Earnest White aka Sirius Black and Jimmy Gardner who just has to be James Potter, Harry and Ginny's son. Every child (or even 20 year old who should know better) dreams that their favourite fiction becomes reality with them as a star character. lol

Earnest White...Sirius Black


What a great idea. Awesome short story!

Reviewid: 116966Chapter: 1
Aw! I really like this story. I'd love to see more of it! Very intriguing idea. Also, I read the reviews before hand and whoever it was that said they'd always fantasized about JKR being a witch writing about a real wizard... I've done the same thing! Then again, when I was a little girl and my mother read me The Hobbit, I thought something similar of JRRT and Middle Earth... wouldn't it be wonderful if that were all true? That's why you need to write more. ;)

Reviewer: Ashlee SincockDate: 2005-03-08
Reviewid: 115862Chapter: 1
I think this was a great story, though it got a tad confusing when you used the names henry and jenny, don and harmony instead of the names from the book so it made me skim back over it a few times to check that it wasn't just a mistake. Other than that fantastic, i'm actually trying to write my own sugar quills story for a subject at school and i had no idea what to do so thanks for the inspiration!

Reviewer: MiekeDate: 2005-02-26
Reviewid: 115032Chapter: 1
That is such a cute fic!!! Your part about when Harry defeats Voldemort and his scar goes away is something i have never thought of before!!! Props for that one!!! I like this fic alot! Keep writing your fics are all so good!

Reviewid: 110255Chapter: 1
Nice twist. That made me laugh quite a bit. It's funny, the idea that Rowling 'changed the names to protect the innocent'. Heehee. Interesting idea.

Ok, has anyone noticed that JK had red hair and green eyes before she dyed her hair blond? Yeah,conincidence? Maybe not.....Amd Neil, her husband, has black hair and glasses. Does this remind you of anything?

Dun dun duh.....

Reviewer: Geena WatersDate: 2004-10-26

Reviewer: JulesDate: 2004-09-28
Reviewid: 99747Chapter: 1
Very cute story! A clever concept. And don't we all wish that it really was true? One thing I was confused about, though, was who Earnest White stands for. It's probably obvious and I'm just being a dunce. =)

Reviewer: ArtemisDate: 2004-09-27
Reviewid: 99617Chapter: 1
WOW!!! I can understand why the kid felt like that. Now I wonder what the real ending will be like! DRAMA!!!

Reviewer: mirandaDate: 2004-08-05
Reviewid: 95881Chapter: 1
Brilliant. I love all the name changes and everything. It makes it seem as though there really is a wizarding world we just don't know about.

I read somewhere that the last word of the seventh book was going to be 'scar', and I have no idea if you knew that or not, but the your ending was great. The whole thing was amazing :D

Reviewer: TrulyDate: 2004-07-30
Reviewid: 94695Chapter: 1
*sigh* i love fics like this.....
it IS real, i know it is!
makes me feel justified in my assumptions that any couple vaguely resembling harry and ginny really is them.... :P yeh i know im sad.

thanks for putting some SQUEE in my day.

Reviewid: 91268Chapter: 1
That was increadibly sweet! :) I particularly liked your characterisation of Jimmy and how much he loved to hear the books. The little snippet of "canon" was very plausable; I would just like to have known, though, how J.K. Rowling got word of Henry Gardner and how she came about writing his story.

God Bless,

strange. a bit different than what i'd thought by the description.

Reviewer: CheddarTrekDate: 2004-06-25
Reviewid: 88785Chapter: 1
Very Original/Unique/Interesting, excellent work. Just one thing I don't get... Who is Earnest White? Oh wait, just as I am writing it I think I get it... Sirius Black? That's got to be it, took be a bit longer since, well... this must've been written before OotP. ^^ Quite enjoyable, thanks.

Reviewer: elanineDate: 2004-06-20

Reviewer: abcDate: 2004-06-13
Reviewid: 86977Chapter: 1
To HeatherK - Sirius Black is Earnest White as a play on serious = earnest and... well, black/white is more obvious.

Reviewer: KatjaDate: 2004-06-13
Reviewid: 86976Chapter: 1
Oh, I absolutely LOVE the name changes. Earnest White!! And Gardner for Potter is great. Such a sweet story...

Reviewer: HeatherKDate: 2004-06-12
Reviewid: 86873Chapter: 1
Oh I love it! That's so cute! I suspected when his case showed up that he was magic, but for them to be Muggles?! Oh I love it! "She brushed through her long, red hair" that was the giveaway, but really...Earnest White? ROFL that just does not sound like a proper name for the trouble maker! Great story though, absolutely adorable!

Reviewer: LannDate: 2004-06-06
Reviewid: 86049Chapter: 1
Oh wow. That was good. Henry=Harry and Jenny=Ginny, and so on... THAT WAS FANTASTIC!!!!!!

Reviewid: 86044Chapter: 1
I've read this ficlet before about a year or so ago and just came across it again...still I love it. So goes with the rumour of the 7th book having the last word as "scar". I really enjoyed the real-life feel of the story. Thank was endearing...*grins*

Oh, this is really cute. I particularly love "Earnest White."

Reviewer: Donna Irene MohrDate: 2004-05-12
Reviewid: 82345Chapter: 1
Great. I could see this as a movie. You know it would be kind of cool if the Harry Potter movies were set like this. A princess bride sort of format, but I guess there's too many books to have that scenario over and over. Write a sequel or prequel or something.

Reviewer: TiaDate: 2004-05-08
Reviewid: 81726Chapter: 1
OOOH! :D How sweet little story! I love it. The ending of the book was sad, but it was good to know that it ended happily. :)

Your story is such a pleasant conclusion for the very last chapter ever. It was short and sweet(in a good way). *sniff* It even made me tear up a little.

Great Story! Now that I think about it, I'm going to be devastated when the Harry Potter books end- I'm going to cry! I hope the 7th book doesn't end like that! That's funny how the names are sort of alike- Don and Ron! hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.............................

Reviewer: NicDate: 2004-03-06
Reviewid: 73337Chapter: 1
That's brilliant!!!

I honestly thought it was a fic that was kinda making fun out of how the seventh book is going to end and I found your concluding sentences very convincing. When I went on to read about mum and dad as Jenny and Henry, it brought a huge grin to my face! It's just like reading the real Harry Potter books, you get to a point where everything is turned upseide down.

It's great. Very original and very witty.

Reviewer: imeldaDate: 2004-02-29

Eeheehee!! How silly! I just loved it!!

Reviewer: KagomeDate: 2004-02-28
Reviewid: 72493Chapter: 1
AWWWWWW I really loved this ficlet :). it was very nice to see in the end that Jimmy's parents were Harry and Ginny (oh, well, Henry and Jenn, of course!). I think you did a great job in giving different but similar names to the characters :)

I bet Jimmy will be a bit shocked the day he'll receive his Hogwarts' letter :) *I* would be shocked to know that the character of whom I've read the story until a few days ago is in reality my dad :)

I enjoyed the story very much. Bravo!

PS: Jimmy's right, it's a lame ending ... but I think you wrote it like this on purpose :D)

PS2: Oh, I join the general question: who's Ernest White? Maybe Sirius?

Reviewer: OccamyDate: 2004-02-27
Reviewid: 72422Chapter: 1
Uh... it's so weird when you go back and remember all those little jokes you had about a character in a book, or read a fanfic that was written almost ages ago, and you think, "He's dead now. He won't have any more sarcastic comments and the epilogue won't say that he's now an Auror and it won't all be very ironic that an escaped convict is now an Auror, it'll just be ironic he died saving Harry when Harry was trying to save _him_!" Oh, and this is interesting, maybe could you continue it? *giggle* Although I bet I won't be able to risk the temptation to take the mickey at a dead person's "real" name next time!

Reviewer: GillianDate: 2004-02-27
Reviewid: 72291Chapter: 1
Awesome story!! LoL I love how you had his reaction to the ending and then his parents were Harry and Ginny, or should I say Henry and Jenny! Great job I loved it!!

Reviewer: MiriamDate: 2004-02-19
Reviewid: 71370Chapter: 1
This is sweet. I like the idea that Harry, or "Henry" managed to escape the famous father image until it is likely that Jimmy could appreciate it.

Thank you.

That's a cool!! But i do prefer the names from JKR better. Good job. I'm also a big fan of you "sex talk" series. That made me cry from laughing so hard!! Well anyways that was a good read.

Reviewer: mattyDate: 2003-12-12
Reviewid: 63014Chapter: 1
that is such a good one! really good. but you shouldn't have made the names like that. it confused me a bit. but once i saw the " red hair hair" part i knew who you were talking about...even if they had different names.

OH, wow, genius, pure genius! I have never read a fanfic like this, ever. It was extremely creative and unique, I loved it! Cute, funny, and sweet, how interesting! Harry going off to live with the Muggles, wow! I wonder how he lost his scar? This is all very interesting! And the thought that Jimmy is actually the son of Ginny/Jenny and Harry/Henry! Incredible. Excellently written fanfic, in character, and just overall fantastic!

Reviewid: 30417Chapter: 1
OMG! That was so cool! What a neat twist. I was kind of thinking it was really Harry and Ginny for most of the story, but I knew for sure when it said she had red hair :-) I thought the whole thing with the names was really interesting. At first, I was under the impression that Harry and Ginny and everyone had changed their names so that people wouldn't know it was them. But, I think the fact that those were their real names and the books changed them was a much cooler and more original idea. Very good story! I really like it ^_^
