Wonderful trilogy, should make it a...hmmm, I have no idea what you would call a four part series. Perhaps a Quadrilogy? Anyway, continue! Please?

:') *claps* I'll be honest. Most of the Harry Potter fanfics I've been reading lately, regardless of pairings, have really been no more than 30K (mainly due to lack of interest in the longer ones). In the space of two days, I have read this whole series The only other fandom I've found fics this long in that interest me the whole way through was Assassin's Creed. These are brilliant. Also, I'm more than happy to be a beta for you in future if needed. Granted, I haven't done it before, but I would like to learn. *gives stack of virtual cookies as I do a Draco and thank you* XD

Okay, so this is a review for the entire Soulmate trilogy
(thought about reviewing each of the stories seperately but probably would have just ended up repeating myself)
First, congratulations on having completed such an extensive trilogy.
I thought you story ideas, character development and writting were all excellent.
Due to my own trauma (which is no where near as bad as Harry's in this story) I have found myself drawn to these stories, full of not only emotional grief, but characters that manage to fight on despite it. I felt the emotional range you managed to portray was impressive and the reactions felt true to the characters.
I feel you maintained a sure grip on the characters as you let them grow, so that the story progression felt natural.
I enjoyed your use of celtic and wiccan/pagan history/legends; I consider myself pagan, though i do not practice extensively, and I felt that you managed to encorporate it well into your story without it feeling forced and without being disrespectful to anyones belief system.
Throughout you used descriptions of violence and sexual relationships only where they added to the story, making them all the more potent and important when you did write them.
There were some disapointing errors throughout all three stories, (sadly i was reading on my phone rather than my computer or i would have kept notes as i read), for example in several places "was" was used instead of "were", "allowed" instead of "aloud" and "hear" instead of "here"; As well as a few typos.
These did not detract much for the story but sometimes took a few seconds to work out what you meant, therefore disrupting the flow of a paragraph or section of the story.
On the whole grammatically the story was very good.
I enjoyed the variation in the points of views, I believe it allowed for a greater understanding of how the characters were all feeling, but I also think that sticking with Harry's POV for EOTM was a brave move that paid off, given we needed to really get into his head for the story to be as powerful as it was.
(fairly long review I know...but I did just spend the best part of three days reading your over 500000 word trilogy... it was totally worth it and i thought you should know)
Overall: I felt a strong emotional connection to your story, which was increased by your easy-to-read writing style and captivating story-lines. I would (and will) be recommending these stories. Thank you for your story (if you ever felt like writing a 7th year story, I would definitely read it.)

There is so much I want to say about this story, but i'm just going to say that this story is brilliant. I'm happy with the outcome :) Going to check out your other stories. Great writing!

Wew, I was nearly out of my seat by the time I finished reading this chapter!
So much angst the last and this chapter.
I actually wanted to punch Vernon, the creep.
Your writing aced at both chapters and I'm gonna keep reading.

I liked the way you experimented with the characters and H/D's fluff is pretty sweet.
| madclifton chapter 2 . 4/5/2012
You portrayed the 'mental' Sirius nicely and it was angsty to read the bit when Remus and Harry lied. It was good all round. Gonna read some more :).

ayo girl, I wanted to say thank you for your brutal but real characterization of rape and what happens with it. It makes me so sad when I read other fics on here and they treat rape as just anything. I read one where Harry forgave his rapists because they said sorry. As a rape survivor, this kinda shit really grinds my gears. So thank you for treating the subject well.

i just finished your trilogy. I loved the battle scene, well done Sirius!
| DemeRain chapter 28 . 10/28/2011
Brilliant! I cannot thank you enough for sharing such a wonderful story. To be honest, going into this, I had no idea there were going to be three parts and that this journey would cover so much ground. But you added to the world of Harry Potter beautifully, building on the characters and making them grow in ways they didn't in the original story. And though I'm curious to know how the final battle would have ended in your version of the story, I am happy you were able to leave it up to the reader to decided. I looking forward to enjoying you other stories and I hope you continue to write.

That was amazing! I loved the entire trilogy so much! I was sad to reach the end, but the ending couldn't have been better.

I've read the Whole of your Soul Mates Trilogy, and I must say, I prefered your stories to J.K Rowling's.
I loved the plot of every single one and your writing skill and the may you present the story is simply great!
