Thank you all so so so so much for sticking with us! I hope it's worth it. We worked really hard on this one, especially to get it done by Thursday. Major props have to go to Doug for powering through and getting the animations done in just about a week's time. You are incredible.

To the fans, what can I say? You all rule. 'Nuff said.

If you enjoyed Part One, please share it with your friends. We are incredibly proud of it and want as many people to see it as possible. Parts two through twelve will be coming to you starting next Thursday. 'Til then, adios and carpe diem!!

Also, a group of my Harry Potter pals have recently launched a Kickstarter for a convention they are hosting next year. They have a ton of experience with HP events and the convention is going to be unique amongst HP cons. They already reached their goal, but they have a new goal now to make the con even more amazing. Check it out here and check out their awesome rewards, including special registration packages: kck.st/LyF6nb

I love everything about this. Mike and I worked almost nonstop this past week getting this put together (that's right, we spent almost EXACTLY 1 week on this.) I think it's the fastest I've ever animated a cartoon of this size/quality. Idk, I'm just thrilled with how this turned out. I hope everyone else enjoys it.

Special thanks to all our friends who provided voices for our characters. It was almost unreal hearing them for the first time. They were perfect.

Thank you so much Jon! Yeah I love that flyover shot.

Really fantastic job! The flyover shot was kinda Simpsons-like, but I liked it a lot :) A tip for the next time - try making some of the scenes a bit shorter, for example Jack falling was pretty hilarious, but it got boring after about 10 seconds :D And the last frame with Betsy's face was also a wee bit too long ;) Just a pointer for you guys :P

Thank you very much. Yeah I thought the same thing about the opening. As a joke I wanted to record a "Thorn-saaaadllllle". Haha. Thanks for the constructive criticism as well. It certainly wasn't perfect, but we are always learning. We'll get better every time.

Outstanding work, gentleman. I really love the awkward moments and dramatic pauses. The only thing missing is the low, slo-mo "nooooooooooooooo" as the portkey flies through the air. :)

Thanks, Scott! Just sent you a message actually.

Ditto to what Doug said!!

Fantastic work! You two really brought it together. I'm glad Doug brought this to my attention. I've now read them all and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Hope to see more of that evil little furball. Leroy has a few issues to work through.

Thanks!! Leroy is kind of my favorite. What a little scamp! I wonder what he's up to while Jack and the rest try to get home...

I've been following Thornsaddle since your second comic posting, and have always found it amusing.
That said, this was a treat! It was actually far better than I thought it was going to be when I clicked play on the video!
Well done all around. Without doubt, I can get my other friends interested in watching this (and possibly even following Thornsaddle regularly) now too!

That's awesome! Thanks for sticking with us for so long. I hope we are always getting better. And another BIG thanks for sharing Thornsaddle with others! <virtual hugz>

So... this was pretty epic! I really appreciate the lack of cursing in here... and may I just say, I think you just made my day. The double portkey drop was hilarious. And now I have something to post on my HP page :D

Thanks so much! Yeah I do try to keep it fairly clean. Glad that's appreciated. And we are very happy to have made your day :)
