Dauntless10 chapter 80 . 9/27
If Harry stays with EITHER James or Lily this summer I’m going to riot, lol. Especially because, unlike in cannon, there’s no real reason for him to return to the same place every summer. In JKRs books there was the blood wards, but here it just seems to not fit? Hardu does so mich growing each and every year and then, does the same tjing over and over again during the summer? It’s so frustrating because it’s just completely lacking any reason for it to happen. I know this is the part where you said Harry would be illogical, and there are still several chapters left, so I’m hoping someone will talk some sense into him and something will change, but like ugh. I NEED a change from the idiocy of the last 3 summers that is so separate from Hardy himself.

Wow! This installment flew by! Harry's growth is excellent. Love seeing Snape trying to save Draco and Harry from making similar mistakes he did. And I love the last chapter. The beautiful imagery reminds me of Susan Cooper's work. So gorgeously done. Tons of thanks for this epic!

I started this 4th book on the 13th of July so in the end it took me 10 days to read.
This storyline has been the most intense with so many twists and turns.
Manipulating Dumbledore which I hope something devastating happens to him for all the pain and suffering he has done to Harry.
I’m happy that Connor is getting better and becoming a better brother.
His allies I love especially Narcissa.
Onwards to book 5 I go.
Take care and be well!

I’ve never seen Narcissa fight before and it was AWESOME that she got to fight her sister Bellatrix.
She is and always will be my favourite Dark Lady.
Onward I read.
Take care and be well!
Tony Moonstone chapter 76 . 7/21
That was the most gruesome chapter I’ve ever read in the Harry Potter Universe of stories on Fanfiction.
It’s so shocking and horrifying.
Pray Harry gets revenge.
Onward I read.
Take care and be well!
Tony Moonstone chapter 52 . 7/20
That was so beautiful what Harry did for the Unicorns, it made me cry.
This story continues to impress me with every chapter.
Thanks so much.
Onward I read.

"But Harry was not sensible, and never had been, or they wouldn't have had to bind his magic."

Such a subtly devastating exposure of the abuser's justifications and wholesale invention of the victim to suit them. Same with your portrayal of Lily in that chapter. I feel quite Snapeishly about it.
Guest chapter 52 . 7/19
There are a lot of things you do extremely well, which I don't review because I'm too busy reading the next chapter. You're a compelling writer.

I like the way you write Luna: she's a very engaging character whom it's nonetheless difficult to write persuasively and you achieve it. Your Scrimgeour is deeply enjoyable: a character with totally sensible motivation who consequently upsets what others expect.

I really admire how you write the after-effects of abuse and the ways foward, how you grasp the internal logic which abuser and abused strangely share, and the painful rhythm of unpicking. It's slow and nuanced and deeply rooted and makes the moments of epiphany or slight shifting credible and actually healing. The moments of epiphany sometimes need refreshing, and it works vicariously too.

I may be like other people or not but for me….
I would NEVER forgive her if I was in Harry’s shoes.
She did the ultimate betrayal to him.
Onward I read.
Take care and be well!
Tony Moonstone chapter 2 . 7/13
So far the story is good.
I LOVE when you do a letters chapters.
Looks like Snape and James haven't overcome their childhood rivalry and Lily hasn't really learned.
Onward I read.
Take care and be well!
gpenguin906 chapter 81 . 5/26
this is actually it after hundreds of thousands of words, i am stoping here. I cannot believe harry is still choosing to go back to lily beacuse narcissa will be concern when he stays at the manor. how fucking stupidly lazy conflict. all the hundreds of thousands of words wasted. you write harry so unbearably stupid, I cannot stand it.

Harry's so stupid,I JuSt hAvE to liE BeTteR tO dRaCo because this NEVER happened before, he TOTALLY won't suspect anything this time."

Harry is so lazily written he have the same conflict every 6 chapters, and they all resolve the same way everytime. He thinks everyone is stupid and he's so smart that he can get away with hiding anything. HOW MANY PROMISES OF HONESTY HAPPENED ALREADY? THIS HAPPENED EVERY 6 CHAPTERS, IT'S UNBEARABLY LAZY.

what a waste.
gpenguin906 chapter 80 . 5/26
Harry would rather go back to lily than have other people be concerned about him. How fucking dumb. How stupid can he get. I get surprised every chapter.

"surely that's the stupidest thing he can do. nope here's an even dumber, stupider one. enjoy. and also, you are supposed to root for him soo . . .
gpenguin906 chapter 78 . 5/26
I have read thousands of fanfucs and I have never seen one where the author hammered the readers how much powerful and strong Harry is and then fail to actually deliver when it counts.

"Look at how powerful Harry is, Isn't he amazing? look everyone like and were in awe of his powers. Some even feared him. oooh the magical creatures respective his powers. OH OH the wild dark magic even likes him. HE'S SOO POWERFULL LOOK!"

Then Harry in an actual battles: Oh he got hit by a mysterious spell and it injured him. Actually he's magically exhausted so he can't fight. Oh there's this thing that blocks his magic that's why he can't fight. he's gonna spent several chapters recovering.

And don't forget how naive and stupid Harry is. it's like he keeps repeating thr mistakes over and over again.

1. Harry: I'm gonna keep this thing to myself, no one can find out.
2. Draco: Harry that's STUPID and you are being moronic. you should tell me!
3. Harrycrying, guilty, and feels bad for hiding something* sorry I won't do it again.
