Oh, bloody hell. Read all this in a day. Great plot. Great characterization - you deserved that HPFA Award.
I like how it really wasn't all sunshine and daisies at the start. Even the breakdowns - they were angsty, they were hard to read about, they were ugly, but they were realistic, and that was very, very good. Harry was blind, and I was really, really glad you didn't make it easy for him, and how you outlined what drove him to do better. "Nobody will laugh anymore." Great work in that scene.
I like how you really showed the progress, especially between Harry and Snape. Damn, I even teared up a bit in the first few chapters. Thank you for writing.

Wow. Just discovered this. Beautiful plot. Amazing characterization. And, damn, 2006 - This is one old story. Nevermind. Am super hooked.

This is a little too...overwrought and overwritten for my taste. Like this: "Harry circled Sirius' still form, talking strongly, almost harshly, and each name was a blow to the fugitive. He asked meekly, eyes downcast although he knew that his expression would be lost on Harry now." This is just too much. Powerful words are powerful-if you cram rich, descriptive words into every phrase, every exchange, it's a overwhelming. 'Ware adverbs! I think you have some decent ideas (I like the dynamic between Snape and Harry) but the endless, cutesy "hee hee!" "heh" cookies-and-personal-notes author's notes at the beginning *and* end of every chapter really take me out of the story and slow down thwe flow. Anyway you have a lot of good reviews so you're obviously connecting with a lot of fans (I mean that sincerely, not passive-aggressively). Good luck!

I must say that this chapter is moving me to tears, especially as there seems to be some sad music playing somewhere here. It's really hard to think about what harry is going through. I am sure that it would be so hard for him to say the least!
I really loved the interaction that Ron and hermioney had with harry. Thought I might say, Ron is starting to sound a lot more like the twins that usuall! Hahaha really good story! *hits favourite*

Sirius' codename is Padfoot, not Snuffles!

I loved the way you developed your characters through this story. It was really great, and I loved the way you threw a bunch of different obstacles in their way. I especially liked it when they had quite human reactions to it (like when Harry first tried walking as a blind boy). It's great, because so many stories have them with totally unrealistic, superhuman abilities to get on with those kinds of tragedies.
I think the way you began it was very striking, and it really captured my attention, so well done :)
And I liked the ending, because it was a very strong finish which tied up all the loose ends, but didn't make me feel like you were intricately planning the next hundred years of their lives and trying to throw it at me.
Once again, well done with this story. It was wonderfully written, with a brilliant portrayal of all characters involved. I think it thoroughly deserves its title as 'Winner of the Best JKR character portrayal.'
And congratulations also for not magically taking away his blindness. That can take a lot of guts for an author, and a lot of authors don't have the courage to continue with the hardship they place on their characters.
Great job :)

So Draco's Free From The Pressures Of Becoming a Death Eater & Joining Voldemort Huh? Good For Him, Maybe He'll Be Nicer From Now On... Doubtful, He Doesn't Want To Give Away His New Revelation To Anyone.
& Uh Oh, Hopefully Harry's Watching All That. Because Otherwise, Snape'll Have To Try & Get Word To Dumbledore, & That'll Open Up The High Possibility Of Being Found Out. Which Would Be Not Good.

Hell Yes! Go Harry! He'll Show Them! I Just Hope His Shoulder Didn't Get Too Hurt! XD
& Uh Oh, Whatever Voldemort Wants Snape To Make Doesn't Sound Good. It Even Terrifies Snape.

Thank Goodness That Hedwig Was Okay & Unharmed, But Now Thanks To Harry's Slip Up, Malfoy's Found Out There's More To Him Than Just Hedwig. Not Good.
| Post U Later chapter 15 . 12/19/2013
NO! That Ferret Better Not Lay A Finger On Hedwig! I'll Gut Him! No, I'll Dye That Precious Blond Hair Of His Red & Orange Gryffindor Colors!
& This Doesn't Sound Good. Voldemort Can Get Into Hogwarts? & He Want's A Multiplication Potion To Multiplicate Something The Size Of A Human. Definitely Not Good.
