|Reviews for Checkmate|
| Dragon Soarer chapter 1 . 2/4
This was such a great story, amazing in every way! It really bugged me how quickly the world turned on Harry, but I decided to keep reading anyway, since it was explained! Brilliant writing all the way through! I really wish for some clarification on the loose ends, though. Is Ginny really a Death Eater? Maybe it was just because of Harry's spell, but I doubt it. You said she loved killing and torturing and was as ruthless and cruel as Bellatrix, a fact noticed not only by Voldemort, but also by Harry and the good guys... Also, did that witch ever find a cure for Neville's parents? How is Bellatrix still alive (unless it was someone else under Polyjuice)? And most importantly, what is this about Sirius being alive? I really hope you reply to this review and tell me the answer to these questions, since I highly doubt the sequel will get written, what with Checkmate being finished in 2008... Thanks for the amazing story!

My goodness, those plot twists were absolutely brilliant. I loved the story, especially the development of the characters and the story line and it was fun to watch your writing grow throughout as well. One other thing, thank you for not having the stereotypical 'Harry is betrayed' storyline, complete with OOC characters and questionable dialogue, I mean those can be interesting sometimes, but it was fantastic how the story and actions fit with the characters you managed to shape them as in the beginning chapters alone. And it made you think, which is such a lovely thing. Thank you for this story and please update again if you wouldn't mind too terribly. Best wishes,

Every so often I go looking for another great story... I am absolutely astonished that this gem has been sitting out there so long. For the life of me, I cannot understand how this story has been missed by so many people.
It. Is. Brilliant.
I hope that someday we'll see the second half. Thanks again for the ride so far.

I see you've turned the Ministry into a dictatorship. Way to go, has to be one of the best stories so far. I hate the idea of Draco/Ginny though.

Somehow, I found myself reminded of Code Geass.
This was a very interesting and highly original story-I commend your plot idea.
Thanks for taking the time to write it _

I haven't yet finished the story, but i must express how fantastic it is.
This is truly one of the best fanfics I've read.

Okay... this is a freaking amazing story, I know. But there's one problem... the last two chapters, my thinking was along the lines of: huh? what? who? why? o.o Could you explain the whole thing with the spell? I know this is a great story, and once it makes sense I can actually know what I'm saying when I give it the amazing review it deserves... it kept me up all night *yawn but for now, I need to know... what just happened?

woah... I can't wait to read the next part! This was awesome, and I loved how Harry is "throwing the chessboard" That's awesome! _
| Bratling chapter 28 . 3/30/2009
Just wondering... but has this been abandoned? It's been over a year since the last update.
| TaintedFantasies chapter 37 . 1/18/2009
Okay, SERIOUSLY! How the HELL was Harry captured by Voldemort and then suddenly and miraculously in the Hospital Wing?
And is Bellatrix alive or not? And what's with the "Mr. Black" thing?
I like the story, but the last two chapters have been really confusing!
