|Reviews for To Fight The Coming Darkness|
| Guest chapter 1 . 10/4/2015
Ok i really dont want this review to be treated as a flame i actually quite like this fic as oposed to the lie ive lived which is quite distasteful and forced in its humor mostly from the hat as well as unrealistic but enough about that. You said REALISM that however dosent mean being biased towards voldemort which is the case. I get it people die however in real life fighting 4 vs 1 when at least 3 experianced fighters are constantly launching powerful curses at old voldie would not end the way you wrote it he simply would be unable to take them out leasurely one at a time due to the cnostant barrage of spells. Secondly he seems to be able to cast 3 or 4 curses in time for dumbledore to cast one and when someone like hagrid kicks you in the knee trust me when i say you no longer have that joint. Now as someone who has seen some combat the only way to beat multiple opponents is area of effect damage and finish them all as fast as you can or you are dead no matter how good you are

Ok, I had to leave a review here.
Dumbledore is a goat... Any chance he inherited it's stubbornness as well as it's sense of balance? :p

Why does everybody start whining about super Harry? The dark lord is supposed to be one of the most powerful wizards ever - and Harry is supposed to be his equal. Just because JKR never did much with showcasing Voldie as intelligent and or with particular skills does not mean a powerful Harry is super. Thanks for writing rational realism.

Well, your story is definitely bloody enough!
By the end I would not have been surprised if you had killed everyone.
The trapped wedding was fairly obvious. But I was on the fence as to whether Narcissa was a willing part of the plan or a pawn. I like the way that went!
Rufus needs to die.
If you do a "19 years later" be sure to write about how he got what is coming to him.
All in all, a well thought out story.

Ok, so Neville was severely traumatized by the DE attack that killed his gran.
The vampire started a spark which he thought he could control.
Neville's 'careful plan' to kill DE children unravels
Believable. Well, believable enough for fanfiction.

Wow... didn't see that coming!
Neville is screwed. He is turning dark, his uncle has plans to kill him, and he has no one to turn to for help.

"How many are feeling bad for Pansy right now?"
Well, if Pansy were a normal human being, I would be feeling very bad for her.
But, she isn't.
She chose her side in the war and is paying the price.
Not everyone is lucky enough to be killed quickly.
Neville is waging war against the dark, using the tools of the dark. Sort of that whole, "fight fire with fire" philosophy.
As a soldier, I understand. I also know he will spend the rest of his life dreading the nightmares which will sometimes cause him to awake screaming in the dark. Taking a life is a hard thing, even when it is completely justifiable. To paraphrase your version of Narcissa, "It is only when we can do these things without it troubling us that we are truly lost."

LOVE the Bill/Aimee scene!
| BarbedCaress chapter 20 . 8/25/2015
I really enjoy your fight sequences. Enough detail to let me 'see' it in my head.
They are exciting and logical.

From what I remember about cannon, Amelia Bones was Susan's only living relative. But, this is your story, so write as you see fit. If I wanted to read a cannon story, I would just read JKR's version.

Hagrid is made of absolute, distilled, pure AWESOME in this chapter. TIME TO DIE TOMMY!
| 00 Non C. Anon 00 chapter 16 . 8/19/2015
That was just full of pure awesome. My only complaint is that the scene between Harry and Susan devolved from an intimate scene into exposition that Harry probably wouldn't be thinking about while they were "making like bunnies." But still, absolutely full of pure awesome.

I think I may be in love... it is a very strange feeling.

Olivander is probably subsidized by the government to provide affordable wands. You can't have students attending Pimplypig's who don't have the tools to actually attend. Another thought: If Pimplypig's is really the best, most awesomest, grandest rich kid wizard school in England...
A) Why do we see all these muggle-born students running around, and...
B) How absolutely horrifying are all the other schools?

This is probably one of the top two or three Harry Potter stories I've ever read. I don't count canon, 'cause... well, let's face it: canon is questionable at best and downright awful at worst. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love the story as much as anyone else who isn't an absolutely obsessed fanboy or girl. But, really, so many of the things that happen in canon have absolutely HORRIFYING implications.
