Well, it is an interesting and enjoyable story you had going here. It would be nice to have it finished, but I don't see that ever happening here. I do wonder what you are doing now, though not enough to stalk you to actually find out... I'm not creepy like that... though basic google stalking on the TS name does not count.
I think that some of the reason you stopped writing stems from the... umm... fan issues way back when... in the forgotten era; however, it could just be that the story just wasn't meant to be. It was not coming together in your head, from here to letter. Or, RL gave you a crapshoot of a ride. Whatever caused your disappearance from the textualsphinx name, I still wish you well, and hope you haven died since Oct 15, 2010.

I've enjoyed your story thus far. Thanks for putting all that work and heart into it.

Poor severus. I think he needs me to kiss him better ;-)

Does anyone know if this author died?

I love your stories, but absolutely detest your disruptive author notes in between chapters. They ruin the suspension of disbelief, they destroy the entire mood of each chapter, and they insult my own emotional response to the drama you've so skillfully written.

You said you'd try not to take a year, but it's been eight, and I kinda want to see this finished, so I'm gonna spam you until something new comes up. XD

This is a strange experience, reading this after so many years and so much canon and fanon inbetween.
You were so very serious and thorough. I can't stop wishing you'd pick up your brush now, after all of the canon is accounted for.
Wonderful story, in case you could not decode it from the above.

hmmm take less than a year.. I think its been far longer lol!

Is there any chance at all that you will pick up on this story again? I loved it when I found it right before I went to war in the middle east in January 2003, and I come back to re-read it on a regular basis, and hope there's a new chapter...
I love the way that you incorporate so much of literature, politics, pop culture and homage to other HP fanfic writers into your works.
I do hope that you will one day come back to this and enchant me again with the richness and depth of your works.

A well written story but I'm reviewing purely to express my hope that Dumbledore usually visits Rowans on karaoke night. D Oh the horrified amusement! I wonder what he'd sing? )
| Madame Minuit12 chapter 5 . 5/12/2009

Well, whaddaya know, it's absolutely brilliant so far. The only thing I think could be better is that the conversation gets confusing... I have trouble figuring out who's speaking. Then again, it makes it read a bit like you're listening in on a telephone conversation... sort of voyeuristic. So, it creates an effect but it's a little confusing. On to the next chapter!
(P.S. I'm pretty sure the quote's Shakespeare... but I'm not sure which play...)

This is one of the single most inspiring pieces of fanfiction I have read. Really. (Although I admit I do tend to say things like that whenever I find something new and pleasing... that doesn't mean it isn't true. :D)
In fact, I'm rather afraid to click the next button, because I find it doubtful that the rest can live up to the sometime subtle, sometime not beauty of this prologue.
I like the old-fashioned sort of narration here... (not that it's particularly old-fashioned, but it reminds me of the tone of novels written in previous centuries) I like that you don't even try to disguise the fact that there is a person writing behind the story, and you do it tastefully and amusingly.
I also like the fact that Frere Laurent got what was going on... Sometimes Muggles are perceptive little buggers, aren't they? He's a truly likable character.
And, I love the labyrinth idea. I think you've said all that needs to be said on the subject of it, so I don't think I have to go on, but I wonder... who's the minotaur? :)

I just wanted to say I'm really enjoying this story and it keeps me on my toes. I do realize that it's been five years since you've last touched this and that updating most likely wont happen, but I thought that i might beg for an update. The way you capture Hermione's perspective is very accurate (in my opinion) and I'm loving every minute of it! Your impressions with Salomé had me giggling and her names for everyone just make her character so much better. I hope you use her in the future!
Anyways, this story has made it onto my favorites list and I really do hope you update it someday!
