mystpurge chapter 4 . 6/17
turning down having separate quarters is absolutely stupid. he wouldn't be separated from his friends he could still go to the common room but he would of had 100% of privacy if he had his own room

I understand that he doesn't want to lose his first friend but its very clear that Ron isn't being a friend never mind a best friend all he has been is a jealous dick. who in my position i would of killed 10 times over
Happypotternerd chapter 1 . 4/19
I think the premise of this is good but the character development is severely lacking and every character is very 2D, with Harry becoming very Mary-Sue as everyone praising him every two seconds. This is fanfic is years old though so hopefully you’ve developed and improved since then, but unfortunately I can’t finish this one.

Theres no wand twisting in apparition, you use your body not your wand
mumphie chapter 3 . 3/26
I don't know how many times I've read your story, but I still get teary when Sirius tells Harry he won't always be there for him, and will be moving on soon. *sniff*
Pableroski chapter 28 . 3/8
Me he leído la historia de cabo a rabo y es una maravilla. No suelo leer "non canon" porque tiendo a ser muy purista y minusvalorar el fanfic injustamente. Sin embargo esta me ha encantado. De principio a fin. Me ha recordado al estilo de jk, ese que te va soltando pedacitos del puzle poco a poco sin que te des cuenta para poder armarlo todo al final, no solo en ese mismo libro, sino en la historia completa. Y me encanta.

He visto que tienes secuela, aunque inacabada y por lo que veo, no la vas a terminar nunca. Comprendo los motivos, tienes una historia de 500 000 palabras, interesante de principio a fin, y seguir ese ritmo es sencillamente agotador. Más el hecho de que haya pasado tanto tiempo, que ya habrás perdido la motivación, las ideas, y quizás hasta tu forma de escribir haya cambiado y choque con tus anteriores proyectos.

Sin embargo te pido, no exijo, solo pido que le des una vuelta. Y si llegas a leer la review, házmelo saber, por favor. Y si no entiendes el español, te lo traduzco de buena gana al inglés. No uses traductores, suelen dar resultados bastante pobres e ineficientes.

Me ha encantado tu trabajo, y me hubiera encantado poder haberlo leído a fecha de estreno para que pudiésemos interactuar más. Verdaderamente me ha maravillado. Ha sido como volver a abrir un libro de jk.

You turned Harry into a Bully. You made him, Ron and Hermione the worst friends ever.

It's amazing that he hasn't even looked into parseltongue yet.

Brilliant! Great story!
Guest chapter 24 . 11/19/2022
I am beyond thinking point deductions and detentions will have impact on Hermione. Every time she speaks Harry must immediately hex that pigheaded, narrow minded, self righteous bb..witch.
Guest chapter 19 . 11/17/2022
Ron is a misguided hypocrite? Hermy is screeching and shrieking her defense of Snape's professorship even as she totally refuses to acknowledge Harry's professorship. She has loudly and publically scolded, reprimanded and undermined Harry from September 1st with zero respect. Harry should deduct points and give her detention for each and every one of her ridiculous outbursts. She has the emotional range, social skills, behavioral interpretations and insight of a teaspoon.

Does talking about your feelings make you not have PTSD. No it does not, but it sure can help you identify triggers to avoid.

I can see Harry is not trying to exercise endorphin his way to happiness at this point. His dreams with Sirius are his method of working through his trauma. That this method is rather unorthodox and of course he is drifting apart from his old friends. Harry is hiding everything that is important to him from them. Magic without wands, animagus transformations, moon time with Remus, and Nighttime Sirius pow wows, apparition abilities, among more stuff.

To be the person's only confidant, to being completely shut out after a traumatic life event is never going to be easy too accept. I know Harry has in the past talked about how he sees that Hermione needs to be his therapist. I don't see this, I just see her as trying to get him to get any therapy. She is confident he would never get any from anyone else, but if Harry let it be known he is getting some I would expect even this Hermione to back off, maybe I am wrong He is getting some therapy in dream land, Hermione doesn't know about it and all she can see is Harry trying to exercise his way out of a loss.

Had my close friend lost a loved one, had a big personality shift, become secretive, exercised more, and start to cut me out I would probably guess grief and drugs. Even if this shift was about being a more confident, productive person I would still remind them, therapy is an option probably every chance I got Why because unprocessed trauma does not go away.

Well though I whole heartedly agree to say that this one of the brilliant story, but harry potter also needs to grow up. When you are in a war, you either kill or be killed. A war is not fought with a stuck against guns and that too big ones that the enemy use. He shall be ready to kill when needed as you are postponing the end of war in favour of enemy lest you are willing to kill. But what can someone like me have a say when you are the one who is writing a brilliant story. Since your other story seems not yet complete, five this a thought when and if you ever decide to complete it.
