Oh, come now, you can't leave this as a one shot. I want more please? Maybe, Harry learning to shoot?

Wow! Excellent start to the story. Sure hope you continue on with this.

The 'some one gets a gun and acts like a god in the stone-age with a boom-stick' plot has already been done too many times, and it wasn't good in any of the previous renditions. Just saying.

I know I've already commented one, but re-reading brings up a few other points. Did killing Tom by non-magical means negate some of his protections? I note that there's no wraith wandering off in this story (be amusing if the cold metal of the bullets negated all his protections toward immortality). Secondly, what does Lily's triumph using non-magical means do/mean to Albus' propehcy? Might it mean that Albus is the "Dark Lord" in question and his attempts to gain control of Harry "marK" Harry? That would tie in to the prophecy in that Harry couldn't live a regular life until he removed Albus' attempts to control and manipulate him.

This was good and you are right about guns in the UK back then really you would expect the muggleborn or raised to be ready for anything or do anything since they can't out duel Tom Riddle.
I liked what was done to Vernon and Peter, said to Hagrid. Harry's wand will really upset Albus as its a powerful wand and Harry has no need of another.
I agree it was beyond stupid not for the Potter's to have their wands really they should have had spare wands, potion knives and had an escape plan. I think Albus knew everything and allowed the Potter's to be found and die he does not deny raising Harry to be killed and the sad thing was Harry still had faith in Albus.
I would like to think life would be better now as Harry has both his mum and Sirius not to mention to faith in Albus and his own wand. Thanks for this.

This story is an interesting one. I would love to see a bit more about it, because it is so good that being a one shot is not making the story justice.

Can Sirius and Lily protect Harry from Wizarding public and Dumbledores plans?

Excellent story. I liked how Voldemort mistook Lilly's remorse over what she was going to have to do as her giving in to him. Such arrogance.

I like this story and it makes a lot of sense. I can see Lily's muggle father teaching his girls to learn to use his pistol. I can also see Lily using it on Voldemort when he came to kill all of her small family. I like the fact that Sirius and Lily stood up to Hagrid and Hagrid realized that Lily would kill him if he tried to take her son away from her. It gives a question as to how Dumbledore knew that James and Lily with their infant son were going to be attacked. If he knew that why wasn't he there to help protect them? Very good thinking. I would like to see more of this but I understand why it is a one shot. Thanks for writing a thought provoking story. pms

Will there be a sequel to this?

Really stupid to be without their wands. I mean how do they cook, clean? Them magical folks use their wands for almost so many things.

Love this!!!!! I always wondered why Lily didn't fight back...

Well I disagree with you, I have seen few Lily survives which were good. I for the most part consider Dumbledore almost as bad as Riddle.
I would like to see you write several one shots of Harry Growing up with Lily. While Dumbledore does everything in his power to gain control over him.

while I wish this was expanded into a full fic..

Bravo!! As the title of a book in one work has it, "Wandless, Not Helpless". Given the service that Lily's father admits to, I can very easily see why he'd want his daughters to be able to protect themselves. It's probably just as good that Lily had his pistol as I can't see someone like Vernon keeping it around if Petunia had inherited it. I have to admit, I do think Lily's questions to them about the eagerness to deal with everything were quite germane and 'twould be interesting to know the answers. The final scene was perfect as Tom finds that sometimes magic can't protect you, no matter what you've done. It could be rather interesting to see what a live Lily and a free, and reporting to the Aurors, Sirius do to throw Albus' plans into disarray. For that matter, how would wizarding society in general and the Ministry in particular react to Voldemort being killed by non-magical means (and a firearm in particular - I can see the pureblood contingent getting rather agitated at just how dangerous "mere muggles" have become). There are lots of ways the story could go from here and, while others have taken some approaches, this reader wouldn't mind seeing what approaches and "variables" you selected.

Ah, the power Voldemort knows not - a 9mm headache!

I like it. This would make a great Prologue to a much larger, multi-chaptered story...(hint hint)

I understand not wanting to take this further, so I'll just say, 'good job!'
ShadeHawk posted a comment on Friday 9th December 2011 3:52pm for Lily
Very nice story.
BTW. I always thought that Dumbledore either cast some charm or ward on either house or Harry, or as the caster of Fidelius he knew when it got broken...
