While it's been recommended to me many times by people whose opinions I trust, I haven't watched a minute of post-1980s Battlestar Galactica. Your story hints at such a rich tapestry that I may need to take the plunge. It's a fun ride! I'm looking forward to the next update.

so Racetrack is tied to the Graystones . . . Huh. Not sure if that'll be important later, but an interesting factoid.

Imagine Gaeta's (or Tyrol's) reaction if Harry points his wand at a broken Viper VII. "Reparo." Okay, probably too complex a machine to fix with one hit, but you get my point. Clean the air scrubbers, transfigure or conjure a part that isn't available any longer . . .

Gotta avoid becoming Baltar's science project, though.

Hmm. That Cup. Talk about a money-maker in the short run. And assuming he's on the fleet, that'd solve many of the medicinal problems. If he uses it that way, anyway. Give him a little high end ambrosia or wine and he can start producing the same stuff by the gallon.

Nice touch on making the lemonade both sweeter and using frozen lemonade in place of ice cubes. Most of the world "looks" the same, but there are enough differences that it keeps emphasizing that it isn't England (or Kansas) anymore.

Speaking of, not so sure why the tape machine and songs. If that was just a list of what he happened to have on him, fine. But then why not have any "real" food as well?

You know, to the right people, his magic won't totally freak them out. The priestesses, oracles, whatever they are already do something that looks suspiciously like divination. He'd become a religious figure if he did magic, but he could openly do it. Not advocating anything, just making an observation.

What happens if you Stun a cylon centurion? What happens if you stun a skinjob? I suspect we'll find out in 10 years or so.

Looking forward to more.

PS: didn't get the e-mail notification. Did I not sign up for the right category of your stories, or did you not send the e-mail this time?

I do like this. Not so much as I like the "Harry uses Trelawney's magic" story, honestly. A battle defeating Tom Riddle with no sign of aftermath is disapopointing.

You could have counterpointed, alternating between "Harry" chapters with the fight against Riddler, and Hermione and Ron chapters where Hermione and Ron deal with the colonials (American colonials). But that would have cut the story speed by half, so I can understand not doing it.

Good work, the pre-veil stuff felt compressed, perhaps, but not rushed, which is great.

Ummm, is this going to drive me nuts since I saw very little of the Battleship Galactica reboot ?? I watched the original one in the 70s, but didn't have cable when the new one came out so I only saw a few. :-(

Otherwise, I am liking this new chapter. It's fun seeing Harry adapt, confused though he is. With all those wands, I like that he has spares, and also options if he ever bumps into another person who can do magic.

Hmm, no magic creatures either, eh? Has he tried concentrating on summoning Fawkes? Or tried calling for Dobby? Not much chance, but desperate times...

thanks for sharing

Great! I loved the 2003 BSG and enjoyed Caprica as well. Other than the very start of the miniseries that started the entire reboot, we've not seen anything of colonial society post cylon war, so I look forward to seeing more of how you interpret it.

Thanks for writing and sharing you work with us, and Happy New Year!

Brilliant introduction, which has a nice easy transition from the old world to the new one

Considering how tings went with the Cylon war, I can see why they might be a more wired society, just wonder how it was that the virus the Cylons helped sneak into the combat systems was uploaded to jump, as it must have slipped around the anti-virus stuff, that or piggybacked maybe on Baltar's code? Will be most curious to see what might happen next with Maggie, and if Harry's skills at his game might lead to him being recruited for the Colonial fleet? Very much a great read and will look forward to what happens next time.

A well written action chapter that shows the confusion that happens during a fight with multiple participants,

Loving this story so far. Can't wait for the next installment and to be introduced to a universe I haven't had a chance to read anything about yet. I'm looking forward to getting to know a new cast of characters!

It is sad that Harry was grieving so much. I'm glad Dumbledore was able to show Harry how to use the resurection stone so he could talk to his parents and Sirius and Cedric. The message from Athena was strange. I'm sure we will see what she meant soon. Thanks for writing. pms

Patches posted a comment on Wednesday 19th December 2012 2:17pm

This is a sad chapter. I really didn't want to see Sirius die. Poor Harry. He is destined to not have his godfather with him through his life. They did get the cup but at a great price. I look forward to more of this story. Thanks for writing. pms

I love the way they visited Dolores. Dumbledore taking her to visit the centaurs was excellent. I'm sure they were happy to see her. The oath Dumbledore made her take is brilliant. I really enjoy the banter between Harry and Sirius. The pink dress would be a great trick. I can see Sirius wearing lipstick, can't you? I look forward to more of this story. pms

I really like this beginning to this story. What better way to start a story than to inconvience Fudge, Umbridge and Voldemort. That and get that cursed horcrux out of Harry's head. I look forward to more of this story. Thanks for writing. pms

> Greek was…well all Greek to him.

That was an awful line.

Okay, so we're now on Caprica, 10 years pre-attack. If he's found in the museum, he'll just be considered a homeless beggar and cast out, I'd think. If someone'd seen him come out of the arch, that'd be a different story. Hmm, surveillance cameras? But there's a dead body to deal with, too. Just so long as they don't consider him a Prophet or something.

Hey, here's an idea: instead of him running around loose until the attack, he's in prison and ends up on the Astral Queen. Interesting way to get him into the fleet without having to have a preexisting position that contradicts too much show canon. I know you already have an idea where to go, but I amuse myself with predictions. He definitely wouldn't be in Zarek's camp, though. No way would he join a terrorist of any stripe.

Thank you for making at least the written language different than his English. A crossover that has them speaking English when they almost have to be a Greek city-state transplant via Kobol is annoying.

Trying to think of who he may end up being paired with, and nothing is jumping out at me. One of the Eights after the civil war?

Looking forward to the next chapter. Have a good holiday season, in whichever form you celebrate it.

Amazing Jim, Other than that I am speachless.

Crys posted a comment on Saturday 15th December 2012 10:46am

believable Snape. Getting out and taking the potions with him. More importantly, wanting to stay "awake" to see the end.

Nice line about James Potter. Not may try to redeem the character.

> “I doubt the battle cry of ‘Constant Hygiene’ would impress our dear Mr. Fletcher,”

*laugh* That's a great line!

> “Sadly, by the time you understand, it will be too late, lad.

Ain't that the truth.

Looking forward to the next chapter.

I just finished watching BSG again and was very excitied to find this story. I am looking forward to find out how you get Harry into the BSG world.

Pretty good chapter, the story seems to flow a little better than the fourth one. Thanks for sharing!

Cheers!

Well, the GINO universe. I really do much prefer the original series of BSG. So far, though, you're doing a really great job of setting things up with a much more serious Dumbledore than we usually see.
