Good job on finishing this story and while your writing is detailed and adequate, unfortunately there are far too many plot holes and inconsistencies in your story for me to continue reading. Well done capturing the minds and hearts of hundreds of other people, it’s too bad that I couldn’t be one of them.

I'm going crazy with this fic

Fuck man, this fic was amazing. Well written and emotional, it had some brilliant and breathtaking moments. The duel when Lestrange walks in and Harry's last meal with Riddle are absolutely thrilling. There are some pretty heartbreaking scenes too, especially with Dumbledore at the end. It's hard to see him like that.

Harry's relationship with everyone is pretty great also, and was incredibly fun to read. The first half of the story focused on school interactions was just perfect.

The story got kinda questionable during the 2nd meeting with Riddle though. I simply cannot comprehend the reason Harry obliviated Riddle and forced the future to play out the same way. Hermione's "theory" makes sense I guess, and it IS thought provoking, but we never get any introspection into what Harry's thinking. He wants it to be the same, but why? Why must it be this way? He spends a hell of a lot of effort making things the same, but never considers that he may have the power to change things, or that they'll play out the same without his.
interference. Is he scared of the part of him that's Voldemort? Definitely, but I thought that was an issue that was resolved? I assumed, I suppose, that he was rid of the horcrux when Voldemort shot the kling curse at his Dinner Party at Grimmauld. Was he afraid of his power? Maybe, but it never really seemed that way.

Not much is said on Harry's thoughts on his time travel, but he probably assumes its like his time travel in 3rd year, where the loop is closed, which is why he's not trying to change things, but there's no reason why he should assume that things played out the way they did in canon as a result of something Jonathan Frost did. This really bothered me.

His confrontation with Peter was very uneccessarily cruel and ruthless, and Peter hasn't really done anything to make me feel as he's deserved it. Why does he go out of his way to make it this way? He knows how much Severus suffers, how much everyone suffers, but chooses the same future, which is just an awful thing to do. I wouldn't be surprised if Snape never forgave him.

Grrr I have to read the sequel. Can't wait!

What on earth! The story started beautifully and I was totally hooked. But you destroyed it for. me. in the end. The fact that he could have changed everything, given everyone including himself a better life, but chose not to seems so OOC. Harry Potter would do anything for his friends. The possibility that he is responsible for his own parents death!

Why, oh why I never read this fic and its sequel is beyond me. I read your first one, why not this one? Why I waited so many years, reading subpar jobs when I could read this little masterpiece? Fate is a bitch, indeed.

Such a brilliant story, thank you for writing and for sharing! A fresh, original plot and you've made Harry into a very intriguing character indeed (I've never been much of a fan of JKR's original Harry, but then he's young and troubled...) The internal warring between his soul and Voldemort's makes for very compulsive reading, and I enjoy fics where Harry has attained alternate magical training. (I read one many years ago where he became a Mage.) I'm now reading your sequel, I'm very happy there is one.

I logged into my FFnet account a week or two ago to find 0 hits on my Harry Potter fics these past three months, it seems perhaps that people have finally got tired of the Potter universe, which is a bit of a shame. Not sure I'll tire of Snape fanfiction. I still have an aim to finish my main story one of these days, I got stuck, frustratingly! My greatest struggle, being unable to finish my stories...!

Thanks again for your words. :) ~Thirteen Ravens~

What an ending.
Voulve chapter 7 . 8/30/2019
The part that likes to be called master is the the soul piece of voldemort that kinda transferred into him, I suppose.
