I really enjoyed this and I'd love to read more, if you ever feel like adding chapters ...

I love this rewrite of the Goblet of Fire. Everything is as it should have been, instead of having Harry bumble around as if he's completely clueless or just too shy to open his mouth. I like how confident he is now that he's made friends with certain portraits who like him as "just Harry" rather than the Boy Who Lived and all that rubbish. By the way, I cheered when Edward told Harry about Rita Skeeter's Animagus form and her ultimate fate at Sirius' hands.

Well done -- I very much enjoyed a satisfying retelling of one of the less gratifying episodes in JKR canon. It always feels good when deserving characters are rewarded without strings or the tarnish of trying repercussions.

What a great story. How do I compliment you appropriately without uttering spoilers. Not allowed (Rule # 4). Regardless, this was an edge of the seat read. I enjoyed your twist on things, and the Goblet of Fire year was the perfect setting. I had no initial warning that this was an AU work. I got to where I was looking forward to each tweak to canon. The incorporation of the portraits was subtle, but effective. Thanks for a fantastic tale--Eric B.

The idea that Ginny and Harry come together after the draw for the Triwizard Tournament has always been very charming for me. It would have been a good possibility, as Ron turns away from Harry and Hermione also withdraws a bit from him. It's nice to see how the two of them are trying to help each other and get to know each other better. The scene, as Harry puts Hermione in her place was splendid. I would have liked that Harry acted this way in canon. Maybe the help from the portraits made the difference...

I liked the assortment of portraits Harry encountered; they all had different aspects to offer him. While I liked Harry bonding with Ginny and getting to know her better, at this point in canon (as much as we all detest it) he had an immense crush on Cho Chang. I think despite his developing friendship with Ginny, he would still have to contend with the feelings he had for Cho. Other than that, a very enjoyable read and it's always nice to see our favorite couple wind up together sooner rather than later. Good luck with the challenge.

I really liked your story and it is very well written. But I think it is a bit inconsistent. Mc Gonagall accepts Sirius' permission to Hogsmeade visits even before knowing he is not guilty. That doesn't make sense. Either Minerva knows anything before that or Dumbledore is the one accepting it and Minerva just accepts that Harry has a permision without knowing who gave it. Perhaps that's just what happened, but it would be better if she told Harry dumbledore assured her it was fine or something like that. The way it is written induces us to think she is the one who examined the form.

Aww, I really l enjoyed this story. I'm a little sad that it's already over though. Really loved how you had the portraits helping them out.

I know you wrote as a one shot, but you should consider continuing the story, it is one of the best I have read in a while
