Wise Guest chapter 1 . 6/18
Lots of Harry Potter stories have an issue with making the characters sound their age when they are actually around twelve.

This one is no exception. Although where usually that means the characters speak with an advanced vocabulary and act with extraordinary maturity and character; This story's kids come off feeling like 6-8 year olds and the adults talk to them as such.

It is a bit off-putting and left me wishing this story would state explicitly that second year at Hogwarts was equivalent to second year of elementary school so that the way characters talk and act in this Story's AU made sense.

Well if you're not going to worship Dumbledore's wrinkly old ass then you are going dark. Harry my boy.
tomascatts chapter 33 . 4/29
Harry needs someone to be there for him and what does he get - a godfather that puts him last on the list and a pseudo uncle that kisses dumbles ass while both ignore what Harry's telling them. Sad thing is Harry resents Snape so much that he can't see that Snape is being there for him.

If Harry moves in with Sirius it'll be a case of the child being the parent.
tomascatts chapter 16 . 4/28
I guess the headbastard Dumbledore should have let Harry stay with the Weasleys.
tomascatts chapter 11 . 4/27
Well the death eater already has more of a heart than Albus Dumbledore
Guest chapter 6 . 4/27
And just who in the hell is Dumbledore to keep a child in an abusive house. He's no relation, not an official, he's nobody.
Also I get t so frustrated by writers who make Harry go oh okay headmaster I'll stay and be a good boy! I put it down to them not ever being abused or knowing an abused child. I was abused and so we're a lot of my friends. And let me tell you - abused children are angry as hell by the time they are hard age. Maybe not to their abusers, but to everyone else, especially those they know won't abuse them.
Just once I'd like to read a story where Harry tells Dumbledore to get fucked.
LillyTigress chapter 51 . 4/22
I love how self self-centered Harry's self pity is. while he shows empathy and concern for his friends with unpleasant home lives which is nearly all his friends, he does not think often of his lucky friends. he would realize that they too feel a lack of choice in their lives. Ron wishes he were more important in his family and that they were richer. Hermione would want her parents to have magic. Etc etc. he would see that no one has control of their own lives and everyone has desires that they will never satisfy. he would still be unhappy but the self pity would ease up and he would greatly lessen his pain. But Harry is a teen and he is doing what every teen has ever done and angsting all over himself and I love it.

I am so in awe of your talent. I will never understand how you can imagine so many different, recognizable, complex characters and how they would interact. I pay attention to people and care deeply for a few of them but honestly i have no clue how anyone but myself thinks. I believe most (even those who think they can) can't. you have a wonderful brain so thanks for sharing it with me.

The way the beast is described it remains me and Hermious Mora from Skyrim. The creature who runs the place you go to when you battle Mirrack.
Vampireking40 chapter 7 . 3/25
I read so many stories that I sometime forget which stories is one I am looking for when I think of an event that happens. This story has the event. I am not even sure if I have ever read this story all the way through though at this point I have skimmed to this chapter and will have to actually read this story from the begging.
Zeromaru Chaos Mode chapter 15 . 3/9
when all you know is shadows and death, someone who is a light in the dark, even one willing to dim their radius to make you more comfortable; is a freaking alien.

trust Harry to end up, by playing the game by his own rules, making people think "...yo maybe i should get in on that actual friends thing cause SHIT that seems like good shit."
Andromeda black 1212 chapter 50 . 3/3
This is the first time I've actually left a review on fanfiction which says a lot. I adored this story and this version of Harry until chapters 40-60. Harry began to irritate me, especially when he stopped listening to those around him. I understand that he has trauma, which is probably why he doesn't trust those around him, but he could at the very least understand where they were coming from. His unwillingness to comprehend everyone's reasoning for why they do not want Sirius to be his guardians. Ex: Even after Sirius forced him to perform a spell that nearly blinded him, he still didn't understand why everyone else was wary of Sirius as his guardian.

But otherwise, thank you for creating this wonderful story

Like sofar
Shiaira73 chapter 47 . 1/26
I wont lie... I'm finding Harry to be very frustrating, even for me. I have to keep reminding myself that he's 13, angry, hurting and stupid. I'm very much aligned with Snape and Harry's friends.
Fenaklu chapter 61 . 1/13
Hang on a tick.
Harry was told about the Marauder’s animagus forms in that very first meeting with Lupin and Dumbledore, in Dumbledore’s office, BEFORE Snape had forbidden him from visiting Lupin on his own. So he can legitimately know about them without having gone behind Snape’s back.
