This was heartbreaking, really. It's too bad you never posted his twentieth birthday, but thanks for posting what you did write. Really well done.

Opalish,
may I write a story off of one of your lines please?
the line is "we won't give you the answers wasn't so very far from don't ask questions, and keep your nose clean was starting to sound a lot like be quiet and pretend you don exist."
I have what I think is a great idea if you'll let me do it... :)

I found the comparison to the cupboard and being shut out of the wizarding world very cleaver, can't wait to see how it changes at his 20th birthday

I really appreciated this comparison:

We won't give you the answers wasn't so very far from don't ask questions, and keep your nose clean was starting to sound a lot like be quiet and pretend you don't exist.

You are simply amazing. This is absolutely perfect. I felt so angry and frustrated reading that I wanted to rip something apart.

You said you hated this chapter. That read so effortlessly and fit so well I would never have had guessed!

Aw god no. That broke my heart.
The Shadowless Nuance chapter 3 . 4/12/2013
I really like the comparisons you draw from the Dursleys to the order in his fifth year. I'd never really thought about it that way, but it does make a startling amount of sense. I really enjoyed this, bitter and heart breaking as it was and really feel you captured an essential part of Harry on this piece.

" wondering if that's really how everyone saw him, like some miracle child who'd pop in and solve a few problems and then disappear when he wasn't needed. Like a little boy who'd leave his cupboard long enough to finish the chores before being unceremoniously returned to his prison under the stairs."

I've never realised this, but it's true isn't it? This is such a moving story, I suppose it's too much to ask you for the next chapter?
Vuurvlieg chapter 3 . 4/6/2012
I kinda want there to be a next chapter. Maybe one about a 5th year in which Harry keeps that mindset, keeps in mind the way that people treat him and responds in kind... This story isn't tagged with 'complete' so... any chance?
