I recognize the redundancy in pointing this out, yet I feel I’d be remiss not to mention how remarkably well written this was. It was spectacularly dark, truly everything you promised/warned it would be in the first chapter, needless to say, I very much enjoyed that this wasn’t the typical redemption story. I was admittedly a tad skeptical about how heavily time traveling would play into the story but gradually grew pleasantly surprised by the way in which you used it. An example being the alternate timeline where she went back in an attempt to change Tom’s path and the way in which it so dramatically backfired, ultimately ending in tragedy. In more recent chapters I couldn’t help but imagine how fried Hermione’s brain likely was from containing the memories of a number of lives.

Speaking of Hermione, I loved your creation of this dark version of her, you really pulled it off in a believable way, particularly by adding things like her telling herself that a normal person shouldn’t enjoy seeing the torture of Avery. Persephone was a fantastic choice for Hermione’s alias; I too favor the idea of a dark queen with power over life and death rather than the meek victim of a kidnapping. On top of everything, the descriptions of magic were phenomenal, the more recent addition of blood magic especially blew me away. Your young Tom Riddle went above and beyond any expectation I came into this with, from that first meeting where we saw his charm together with the cracks in his well-constructed mask. There was never any question that this was the young dark lord, made plausible by his flaws just as well as his power of command. This is someone still coming into his power, he could be taken out of his comfort zone and prove to be petulant, unused to anyone disobeying him. To have those flaws on full display and still manage to write such a seductive character is undoubtedly a difficult thing to achieve. The other characters were interesting too, whether they were younger versions of their canon selves or entirely created for this work it all came together to create a cohesive story that very much felt as if it belonged in the Harry Potter universe. Abraxas was a favorite of mine, his development as he faced inner turmoil at finding out Hermione didn’t come from a magical family. Then his desire to help her while still showing some of the cowardice we see in his descendants.

That final scene in chapter 32 was nothing less than a masterpiece, so wonderfully suspenseful. I always say I’d like to see stories completed but this one begs for an ending in a way I have possibly never encountered. I can’t help but feel eager to read about Hermione creating her first Horcrux. All in all, I find myself vaguely regretting that I chose to read this one as the first for this pairing because I truly can’t imagine anything surpassing it. It simply roped me in until I was thoroughly enamored and far beyond the ability to restrain myself from obsessively reading it to completion. Obviously, I could go on and on, any mistakes I noticed were quickly swallowed up by everything that worked so exactly right. I was saddened to hear about the health problems you’ve been suffering with, I sincerely hope you’ll be able to recover and I apologize for failing to condense my rambling review.

Hi I just started reading this fic and it is amazing Holy moo cow! Hermione is something else. This is the first fic I have read that has her so dark! And I love it! I really like what you've done with the time travel bit. It's absolutely brilliant. I hope all of Hermione's hard work isn't for nothing though! And can Lestrange please just die?! I know it would muck up all the timelines and stuff but he has to go. He's such a prick! Please take care of yourself my friend! I hope your health turns around!
