To imagine, you have saved some ones life, at tremendous cost to yourself, only for them to die, and then their death probably being kinder than their survival because of the death of their family.
This is an emotional rollercoaster ride.
What is Maitri? Why is she what she is? What is she becoming? Again, why is this story called "Mermaid Merlynn"? And how long is it taking Lynn to tell this story? Report Review

Seriously ecstatic to come across another Indian! So, you're not in India right now? Nostalgic? Aww. That's sad. I'm glad you enjoyed the little piece of India that has made it into the story so far...
Thanks, keep reviewing!

Aargh! I'm afraid this story is going to be one long cliffhanger 'til the end!
I am so engrossed and caught up in this story! Will Maitri even make it back for her 5th year? What will she do in the founders room? What is the creature in the forest? Why is the story called "Mermaid Merlynn"? Will these and many other questions Really be answered?
Please don't stop!Author's Response: Eddie!
Yes, I'm afraid the story's much much longer than I figured out it would be when I began writing it! It just goes on and on as the details emerge... but yes, I'll get to the titular justification soon enough! Maybe in a couple of chapters or so, I'll drop the first hint! :D

I have to say that I am impressed with the way this story is progressing at the time.How Orion can expect Sirius to turn James is a mystery but I will keep reading.Thank you for entertaining me.Author's Response: Dear PotterBlack7201,
Thanks. Please stay, read and review the rest of the story. Glad to have been of entertainment. :)
Let's just say, the Blacks weren't that bad of parents, hating their firstborn son. I'd like to think that Orion loved Sirius and was proud of him for quite a while, and tried desperately to make him stay on Voldemort's side. With James Potter being a distraction from the good side, it would only seem right to rein Sirius in by converting James, too, right?

Wow! I havn't checked in for a while, and all of a sudden, two updates! I was afraid you'd quit.
This is quite the cliffhanger you're leaving us with, please don't keep us in suspense too long, I'm (along with a lot of other people) very hooked on this story.Author's Response: Eddie!
No!!! I'm not giving up!
I haven't even come close to explaining the story's summary! Report Review

This is great!!!
Good luck with your exams!!! Don't worry about us, we'll wait. Report Review
This is a really amazingly written story. It made me cry and laugh and was just generally a brilliant read. The whole story line was unique and really drew me in, I could really understand the characters and their messed up lives. You should really continue this book. I need to know what happens next. Keep up the amazing writing :D Report Review
Ah, a break from the intensity of the story!
It's good to see those who were previously enemys now as friends. It's way too rare in the real world, and we need to be reminded that it can be this way. Now I'm looking forward to more founders room, spell theory, strange creature in the forbidden forest, Maitri haters, and friendships.
I hope you'll have a little time for more writing after finals?
Keep up the good work! Report Review
AH! The end of the year! WO! So good. I rate this, five hearts!!! Thank you for continuing the story!!! You helped cheer me up tonight. Report Review
Oh my goodness!!! So good!! (I've probably already read it, but I re-read it to get caught up for the next chapter). I'm excited about EVERYTHING. It's so good, and heart-wrenchingly sad too... Report Review
I hope school is going well for you!
I began in ernest, about a week ago, looking for this post, and now see my question about why Maitri conceded all cleared up!
I like the new Slythern prefect. He seems very shrewed, skilled in understanding what motivates others, as I would expect of a Slythern! And I like the way Pottter is burned, realizing he owes Maitri!
Keep up the good work, just not at the expense of your education, which I understand HAS to be your #1 priority. Report Review
hey there! i was just checking to see if you updated since this last chapter... but sadly you didn't please come back soon and update :) i can't wait! Report Review
