| Jedipilot24 chapter 28 . 2/21
Although an interesting premise, this story is an example of what happens you ignore the First Rule of Fanfiction: Every power-up for the protagonists must be met with a corresponding increase in their difficulties. In other words, you can't make Frodo a Jedi without giving Sauron the Death Star.
In this story Harry and Hermione get a significant power-up by virtue of being possessed by demons: they are very strong, they are immune to dementors, they are virtually invulnerable, they cannot be tracked, they can shadow-teleport, they retain their spellcasting abilities, Harry can make wandless magic-eating fireballs, Hermione can summon out of nothing impossibly sharp blade weapons, they can do new things that no one else can do (Enchanting and Technomancy), they have perfect Occlumency and Legilimency, and they both know instinctively how to use all of their abilities without no training at all. And to top it all off, they're effectively immortal. Their only "weaknesses" are never relevant and never put them in danger and the only lasting consequence of their transformation ultimately becomes irrelevant. At no point in this story are they ever seriously in danger of losing their life. And while they got all these power-ups, their enemies not only didn't get any of their own, but actually became weaker in some respects (no horcruxes for Voldemort).
In short, an interesting premise boringly executed.

Uhhh that was a nasty trick... making him SEEM dead so the MLE will do the real killing for them. And all just through standard procedure, that's creative villaincy to learn from :D
Okay, the "spell" made me cringe, terribly bad latin has that effect sometimes. But on the whole... nice chapter and a very inspired way to get rid of somebody using the system for their own protection. Make the system work against them - unknowingly. Perfect

Well it's getting interesting as we get to know more details about their background and what they have been doing all the time. Nice how they played Dumbledore, but it's bad to loose the services of the map. Couldn't Remus have made simply a new one for the old geezer?

While the beginning was good, I think I like these last few chapters most. I'm especially interested in fics that develop and reform the major social issues of the HP universe, and that is certainly the case here. Very enjoyable fic; I wish you had completed it.

Thank you for your service. Your muse is obviously more concerned with keeping you alive than inspiring you to write. Come back to us healthy, hearty and ready to write.
