Wow, great fic. I really enjoyed how you described Voldemort as human and the way you wrote especially "His body – he had never realised how much he loved his own body until he examined his long white fingers again, noticed how complicated their design was, the way they curled around his wand. And the movement! To feel the earth beneath his feet, the precise balance of his bones and joints when he walked, the smooth flexing of his muscles. It was pure joy, the joy of possessing a working physical body.
Few could appreciate just how good that was."

Very well written

Interesting. I'd kind of assumed that the spell to create a horcrux was spoken in Parseltongue and so that's why hardly anyone could do it.

Gorgeous. I love both series (obviously) and you have done a marvelous job at working them together. Your idea, and your portrayal of it is perfect.
I found the old man particularly fascinating. His character - now, his character was like something right out of His Dark Materials.
This, really, is just beautiful.

I think this is one of my favorite HP/HDM crossovers here. It's really brilliant, how you tied in Pullman's idea of everyone having daemons in our world, just not seeing it. And how Voldemort tore his daemon apart by creating Horecruxes.
My favorite concept was his relationship with Nagini. I think it was the most touching part-how he kept her close, almost seemed to pretend she was the soul he had, for the most part, lost. It was also very well done-although I really wished we saw Voldemort's reaction to Nagini's death.
My favorite part was the very end: "He saw, with perfect clarity, the she-wolf standing next to Potter, her hackles raised, her lips curled back in a snarl. She gave him strength, a strength that he lacked, and she dazzled with the purity of Potter's heart. The fragment of soul left inside him trembled.
And Lord Voldemort was afraid." Not only is this chilling, but it's also interesting and a perfect end.
Also, I love Harry's daemon as a she-wolf. I thought about HP daemon forms, and I decided Harry's would be an Arabian Wolf (small and scruffy, to match his humble side, but a wolf all the same!) so I was very happy with your choice. A lot of people think patronuses would match daemons, but, I think patronuses reflects an animal you find protective. That's why Harry's would be a stag.
Alright, I'm done rambling. This was a great read, thank you for publishing this!

Wow this was amazing. You're a very talented writer.
| Featherfur chapter 1 . 5/28/2013
I loved this story maybe u should do a series of one shots over how everyone interacts with their daemon I think that would be cool as well
| toolazytologin chapter 1 . 5/26/2012
that was really good!
the reason for keeping nagini around was plausible
the way you wrote voldemprt was realistic
| mainstreet52 chapter 1 . 4/4/2012
Well-written, and a fascinating concept to match the execution. I approve. :)
| captainbanana chapter 1 . 3/31/2012
This was fantastic. I love the cross over of the two fandoms, and especially the use of Nagini as his idea of a replacement soul.
Very nicely done, I felt the pace was just right, you skipped the in between bits but without it feeling rushed

It was positively brilliant, the way you structured this story. The pacing was perfect, the ending was one that left the reader warm and glowing, in an oddly courageous way. Your word use was supple and fresh. All in all, a very good story.
