| Happy Stranger chapter 7 . 4/13/2020
This is so well written! All of them are acting in character! I love your work, thank you for this :)
| roseareader chapter 7 . 3/6/2020
Wow! This is really good! I really get boret between Violet's updates, so this is a perfect tide over! Thank you!
| ArthurianScribe chapter 2 . 8/24/2019
Oh my god. I love this chapter. Not only is Leo one of my favorite OCs of all time, but I have also considered the possibility that Hermione would be the one to give him the info he needed to put the pieces together and it was great to see this play out.
| Astra Across the Stars chapter 7 . 8/8/2019
After reading the latest chapter of FAWL, I went back and read this...and I like these reveals sooooo much. This is how everyone should find out. I’m not kidding I think they’re brilliant. Hope you have a few more ideas for more that you couldn’t add because I love the ingenuity!
| Elby chapter 7 . 6/1/2019
So brilliant! I'd love to see Lily's moment of realization, she's such a clever woman and I don't think the Quidditch slip-ups made by Harry would have escaped her. She'd have to keep it from James, too, because she knows what the consequences would be given his job, and I can see her doing anything to protect her daughter. Harry mightn't even realize how much that's true- like Archie's observation about the lights in her potions labs, a lot of Lily's love for Harry flies under the radar.
Looking forward to the next chapter!
| Life's a dream chapter 5 . 6/5/2018
I totally ship Archie/Hermione!Who else would be suited for Archie now that he's gone thru all of AIM (so far) by her side? Love it!
| Life's a dream chapter 4 . 6/5/2018
OMG i loved Remus's chapter. His thoughts at the end particularly are brilliant. Preparing Harry more in her training - that sounds like one of the best ways he could support her. He's the best uncle! I wish I could've seen him connect Harry's reason for asking for more self-defense is also in correlation with what she has had to go through at school. It really is brilliantly written, thank you so much!
| Vaughn Tyler chapter 7 . 4/9/2018
| The Panda Goddess chapter 7 . 2/14/2018
haha, nice! I was wondering myself how each character might react to finding out, and I found these pretty accurate. I really like Rosier's especially.
I'd love to read your thoughts on Pansy, since I can never quite grasp her character, and Caelum too.
| Elelith chapter 7 . 9/26/2017
Somehow I just discovered this now. These are really good, I love the flow of your writing. My favourite is probably Severus or Leo.
You manage, in each chapter, to make the realisations completely plausible. Hope you continue this - we need more Rigel Black fanfics of this caliber!
| StarOfTime chapter 7 . 9/25/2017
That was good! I think it was perfectly plausible.
I'd like to see the Dominion Jewel reviewing Harry's memories. There would be many moments of realization there.

I think your Hermione voice is perfect. This is perfect. Thank you so much! If you write any Archie/Hermione set in the future you will have one very eager reader.

I really really like this one! I think my favorites are when you venture farther from cannon, and Lucius's motivations here-keep his son as safe as possible, especially with an insane radical on the loose-ring very very true to me. There's also nothing that suggests he can't confront Harry at a later date. Things might get sticky if she's uncovered before he can trade the life debt for silence, but he has enough inside sources at Hogwarts and the Ministry he can't be too worried about finding out too late.
I like how easily Lucius made the jump to Harry-she really was very like how he knows Rigel at the world cup-powerful, imprudent and very devoted to his son. He also got to see Lily with her magic unleashed and magical inheritance definitely seems to be a thing. In cannon I hope his blood (and likely sexism) prejudices blind him, but here it works very well.
Thanks so much for writing!

I wasn't really on board here (the wands, the parseltongue, it's come up before) until the last 3 paragraphs, but those definitely took me for a ride! The possible enticements coupled with a 'the time is past' mentality, then her family as possible pressure points, and the idea of manipulating this very powerful witch to act for their 'mutual' goals, were just the scheming Riddle I wanted!
| meek-bookworm chapter 4 . 9/25/2017
This is my favorite of your set so far! I love the bit about the accents (especially since you take it beyond what Healer Hurst said in SS). It also feels like Remus-the concern about the personalities, his particular reliance on one of his werewolf senses, his cautious weighing of other factors which could have an impact.
I do think, however, even if Remus did decide not to tell Sirius, James, and Lily, that he would confront Harry and Archie to help them-check that their plans (which have only been vetted so far by two young teenagers) aren't missing critical pieces of information (e.g. the O.W.L.S have magically binding paper to ensure Rigel really is A. Rigel Black), or check that they do want to continue the ruse and aren't just in over their heads with no idea of how to end things. He might also want to make sure they know they have someone to turn to if things go pear shaped to try and keep them from making any desperate decisions.
Thanks for writing!
