This is such a good story. One of the best vampire one's I've read.
| henriette chapter 7 . 11/29/2003
this is good, this is very good, please continue, but if Harry is dead then how can this story go on. I hope he comes back and makes Fudge a vampier that would be fun, than he had to kill himself. hehe, I like that.

| ex-angel chapter 7 . 12/24/2002
holy shit, people...this is fanfiction. not "lets see who can rewrite the books exactly as jk rowling would." man, talk about a tough crowd. i think this is awesome-even if some of it might not be "plausible" its fanfiction...you can do whatever the hell you want to with the characters! i think its well written, and takes harry's point of view into really nice perspective. nice job.

! what is this you have to keep writing what will happen is it over is it done, he shouldn't die, because if you read interview with the vampire wooden stakes don't kill them, only fire and sun.

This is a really good fic, and pretty dramatic and angsty. Your style is refined and elegant, so it makes the fic quite enjoyable. Though it is meant to be read as a whole: waiting between chapters may make people loose interest. I am lucky to have found this when it was complete.
But I have to ask you this: could you explain the quote from Shakespeare? It's not that I don't get it, but I don't understand all of it either. English is not my native language, and we never studied Shakespeare (a great loss, I know). So even though I read things he wrote, I was never able to study it from a litterary POV. Therefore (heh) I don't quite understand the quote, especially not why it makes Lucius hesitate. Would it be too much to ask you for an explanation? My e-mail is
About the reviews Kelly wrote. Frankly, I agree she may not have been quite the diplomat. But that remark about Pounds, although scathing, was nevertheless true. Then, the last review she wrote. I have to agree that such a thing would not happen in the HP Books (vampire killing, I mean). JK has hinted that they are not exterminated. But I don't judge your work on that basis. Your fic was poetic, dramatic and strong. I loved your style and the fact that it was poignant. But there are readers who look for integrity in the work they read. Kelly is one such reader. One or two little mistakes will irritate them. Don't let it get to you though, since we cannot really judge yet whether or not your take on the view wizards have of vampires is true. We have only hints in the books after all, we don't know yet. For all we know, wizards could have such a view of vampires. Plus, you have laid the foundations of your fic earlier, in the chapter with Madeline, where she said quite clearly how he would be treated. Also, how could this fic be dramatic without such harshness of judgement? As I said, this fic as a whole is really good and has no 'mistakes'.
The only thing that could be held against you is the everpresent religious references, if an atheist-to-the-core were to be irritated by that. Again, I am not unnerved by it, but you may receive such reviews (maybe).
Anyway, I will say it again, I really loved this fic. Why don't you attempt a longer fic? With what I have read already, I think your characterisation is pretty good and strong. You seem to have a grip on the characters' personnalities, it would be nice to read a long fic from you. You should think about trying out the Severitus Challenge. With your take on Snape and your penchant for dramatic tales, you could break the prototypes that Challenge has fallen into, and make it something worth reading. Besides, that fic has so much potential...

Thanks for the scathing comment about the pounds, Kelly. Next time I read anything of yours I'll be sure to pick out all the mistakes and present them to you in the most bitter and sarcastic way possible.
| Kelly Holden chapter 7 . 5/29/2002
This is... Odd. Very odd. Thing is, in book 4 Percy mentions the Guidelines For the Treatment of Non-Wizard Part-Humans, paragraph twelve specifically, in relation to Rita Skeeter saying they shouldn't be wasting time on cauldron thickness, when they should be stamping out Vampires. They couldn't, and if Harry became one, I reckon killing him would be an unpopular decision, not a popular one.
I actually have a feeling there will be a sympathetically portrayed vampire in a later book. JKR's already got a nice werewolf, and two perfectly harmless half-giants (as long as you don't insult Dumbledore in front of the male one), and she goes on about negative prejudice quite a bit (and in book 3 Dean says (quite hopefully!) maybe they'll be taught DADA by a vampire next year, and JKR does have a tendancy to make passing comments that in fact hint at major later plot, but you can't see it at the time, like the Parseltongue/snake-in-the-zoo thing).
I still don't feel anything but disbelief and weirded out at this, so I'm not going to say I liked it, but on the other hand I don't think it was awful, either.

OK, I've only just started reading and am rather weirded out, but *dollars?* Harry is English, Joltz. They use Pounds in the UK. Little symbol that looks like an L (It's from the Latin "Libra", you see) with an extra horizontal stroke, not an S with an extra vertical stroke (from 'Pieces of eight').

twisted, my friend would love this, but you HAVE to be bitten to be a vampire don't you? and if not then how and when did this happen? have you seen interview with a vampire?
| jona chapter 7 . 11/2/2001
wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow! Amazingly amazing with amazingicity! Wow! This fic was incredible! That last chapter made me think of System of a Down's Chop Suey, very intense, I can't wait for more of your stuff! Wow! I think I said wow didn't I? Oh well, you deseve at least 100 wows for that chapter alone! *Grins* Really cool. Thanks for writing it. Although I wish I could have read those discarded chapters. I love to read stuff that people leave out, it's always fascinating to me! Luv, jona xxx
