I get Harry's feelings. He was forced to be and act a certain way, why would he want that to be the reason people follow him? I also get Draco and for once I'm not going to complain about him because Draco is finally talking not like a whining little girl but like young man in love but not too blind to shy away from telling his lover certain truths.

I'm getting really tired of this cycle of Dumbledore shit. Sorry to say but it repeats, repeats and repeats. Don't mistake me, I absolutely LOVE your story but this gets irritating after some time…

What a great ending chapter with the unicorns calling to Harry so he'd be confronted with his own stubbornness again, like in the Forest with Draco, and so nice of them to take some of those spells off his hand. He'd better honour that gift with trying to remember the lessons (why did he never write down what he learned in the Maze so he could reread it when he lost his way - that Maze doesn't help much if the people don't remember its lessons, see James), and then work on getting his hand back. Because it's obvious that Bella was wrong, and the spells can be reversed, though no doubt it'll take a great deal of time to do so, it isn't impossible.
Can't wait to read the sequel, because I think I know what Severus is about to do, and people will finally get their comeuppance.
I sincerely hope that as Harry begins to overcome more of his training against pleasure and resisting touch, that their will be more romance in the next 'book'.

Will Peter accept? Or will he merely allow Severus to persecute them for crimes against Harry alone? I more see him doing the second one, because Peter will reason that Harry will need an adult to go to once Severus takes steps further down this road.

Neither of us were born for the easy way. Understatement.
Yes, Severus! Yes. Harry needs this more than he can realize. The abused child is oftentimes the last to realize their situation, and this especially rings true for Harry, whose to noble for his own good at times. Albus and Lily don't deserve a Vates IMO! Harry would have kept giving them chance after chance; Severus is right. But where will Harry stay for the summer? Hmm, Malfoy Manor perhaps.
And once the fact leaks about Albus, Lily, and James, will some of his recently acquired allys dessert him, when they realize that their powerful leader is an abused child?

Cissy is evil! But to be fare, Bellabitch deserves it and more. That oath sounds vicious. *smirks*
Narcissa and Lucius are one of a kind and a perfect match for one another.
Harry will need all of the allys he can get in the upcoming war, and I'm glad that they will accept him without his hand.
It's reassuring to see that Regulus, Fawkes, Narcissa, Draco, and Connor are doing their best to protect Harry and help him heal. I was thrilled when I realized that Harry hadn't made Connor sware not to tell Severus, because while I think that seeing his abusers go to trial for their crimes against him will be difficult, he needs the closure.
Regulus will finally be able to begin the road to regaining his proper body. Can't wait to see him in the flesh so to speak.

Using Dumbles desire to have Fawkes bonded to him once more as a basis for preventing him from continuing the compulsion was a brill idea!
Yay! Connor is finally starting to care more about his bro's well-being and less about his own deameanished fame. He's growing up at last.
Draco is going to do something stupid as well as Connor and report Harry's condition to Severus, who in turn is going to unleash a fire storm. They deserve it, but what Harry will see as the ultimate betrayal of his guardian, will irrevocably damage his trust in his guardian.
Seeing Poppy destroy the curse was fascinating.
"Come to us." what creatures are calling for Harry?

Yes Harry, you definitely need to go find Draco, he'll knock some sense into you.
Dumbles is a bastard!
okay, Dumbledore's toast, this time. I have to admit that I feel a certain glee over that.
Well, there are things that don'T fit, though: Harry can'T possibly have recovered from the severe and probably incurable trauma he sustained from the events in the graveyard so quickly that he's able to form coherent thoughts not tinged by emotions, let alone plans. Also, NOBODY, not even Harry, can get used to the idea of having just one hand THAT quickly. His brain - and I mean that in a anatomic/medical sense - is incapable of just acknowledging the loss of a limb. It will also have severe psychological effects. So either Harry is still in shock (which is the most likely possibility) and hasn't realized what happened with all of his being or he's mad, which isn't a comfortable prospect, either. Or the compulsion has prevented his brain from processing it.

Why oh why isn't Harry at least a little apprehensive about his sudden desire to see Lily? Come on! The old wind-bag has put you under compulsion!
| Taylor1991 chapter 79 . 1/28
Tut, tut, tut...Albus is up to his old tricks. I fear that he's put a compulsion on him to return to Lily or something equally as stupid. Not good, because Severus will take action, believing that James and Lily have hurt him again...and though they will be forced to surrender to the strong arm of the law, it'll hurt Harry.
Hawthorne took it better than I suspected.
Breaking the web was the bomb to help heal Harry's emotional wounds, giving him a sense of purpose once more.
It's only a matter of time before either Severus or Draco realize that the left hand is merely a glamour.
| Taylor1991 chapter 78 . 1/28
This mental battle ground was all that I expected it to be. Harry's "heart" was very elusive, good thing too, since Voldemort was aiming to wound "Draco". Looks like the score is Riddle 2, Harry 5. He wounded Harry severely, but Harry got in the last hit, and what a spectacular one it was. Harry and his allies should have a month or two to grow in number and strength while Riddle recovers. The sword was very intricate, and the jems were obviously the horcruxes. It'll definitely be signifigant that Harry remembers what they look like for the future.
At least Harry can take his body back for the family, and he has Fawkes by his side.

Evan is rather complex in his madness. One moment, he's on Harry's side, the next he's helping Riddle torture Harry in a manner that made him utterly insane.
But he hexed Bellatrix, to me, Harry having to deal with a persistant Evan stuck to him like glue will be worth that, doing what Harry wanted, even needed to do, but what he couldn't.
I knew it! However, it doesn't make his death any easier to read. Hawthorne will be accepting of events, because she can think rationally and knows that Dragon Sbane went to that graveyard of his own free will knowing that he was going to die their. Pansy however isn't mature enough to realize that, and will probably not forgive him.
Interesting...both of them casting legalimensy on each other at once. Can't wait to see their mind battle.
