The ardvarks! my eyes! At the aquarium I volunteer at we have a tank with horseshoe crabs that is very popular. Even though the crabs are all males, sometimes they get a bit enthusiastic. I tell the adults the crabs are confused. The little kids get told they're playing piggy-back.
I read this on fanfiction and enjoyed it there. I love the extended ending, especially Tom's punishment and Dumbledore's graveside remembrance.
Thanks for sharing.

Well I didn't notice many changes and only two typos so I liked it just as much as before, which is quite a bit. I had forgotten the bit about the Weasleys and the Prophet which tickled me all over again. Thanks for writing. W.

I like how you've changed this from the original and allowed Hermione at least the possibility of happiness. A couple of commas missing, I think, such as in the following: "Unlike Harry[,] I'm not a noble..."

Hah! Good one! Really enjoyed this story. And it's not often that I run across a fanfic author who can (dare I say it?) write better than Jeconais. (Not as well as Anne, though. Sorry.)
I liked the way you skipped over revealing exactly how they defeated Voldemort, plus what they did with him afterward.
What's really odd is, I usually don't care for the "Ron is a clueless git and Dumbledore is worse" category of stories. But you made it work. Congratulations.

Yay! Excellent finish to a great piece. I liked all the cleanups you did from the original version.
So... now that you have this one up and posted... get to writing new stuff more! :-)

I'm glad you made for happier ending for Hermione -

I see you edited out several repugnant scenes, which IMHO works here. Let the reader imagine them as your descriptive storytelling while great in the normal format sure gets quite literal and I was so incensed with Daph's Dad and the Count I would have made Sausage links of them and feed them to the nearest pigs!
I suggest publishing this as a revised edition on FFN just to get the attention and comments from the community at large, sheep that they are!
P.S. Lets try a true Harry/Luna story as even though Hermione's relationship with Dufus-Ron was stomach turing, I hope if she doesn't end up with Harry she gets someone who is deserving!

And Thus ends the story of Albus the schemer, and Harry and his brother Neville. Ron is show to be a prat and Ginny well she is just a well trained gold digger.
It was a good story and one I will reread when the times are slow.

THAT WAS BRILLIANT!!!
I just sat down to see if any updates had happened since I was last on, and I read the whole story start to finish. Thank you for such an enjoyable read. Chances are I'll be giggling about parts of the story for the next few days.

I'll have to write a proper review. Just as soon as I stop laughing!

What a cute and wavky ending to this story.

I like the 'kinder, gentler' Ginny we see in the Christmas scene in this version of your story. I can believe that this Ginny truly does end up regretting what she did to Harry. But, Harry stills feels he 'could not hurt her' and you still characterize her as a vindictive 16-year-old. I am curious why this Ginny, who admits to caring about Harry at some level, becomes so hateful and vindictive when he leaves.

Great read! Still kinda mad about Ron not getting a better punishment, but oh well. Kinda sad its at an end, but it was well worth the time!
Can't wait to see what you update next!
-PS My vote is for the Technomage!

Nice touch-ups in this story. And always a very good story.

That was great. I enjoy reading your stories. This one grabbed my attention and kept it to the end. I hope you play on updating your other stories as well because they are very good to. Keep it up. I like your Neville. His interaction with Harry gives off a James and Sirius vibe. Alot better then Ron. Good job

Once again, thanks for imparting your excellent writing skills on us. Fantastic ending. Nothing could be better than pissing on your tormentor's grave. By the way, Aussie blokes also think English womens' accents are sexy too. Cheers.
