Oh, God, I wish this would continue! But it was a good place to end it. Nice ideas for the potions, by the way.
| Xiaou Nem chapter 1 . 5/16/2013
Wow. What an amazing solution. And I bet it costs less than jail.
Just and fitting.
| GuesssWho chapter 1 . 3/6/2013
A bit cruel, in a way. You can't add up pains like numerals. But at least he gets it now.
| Hahukum Konn chapter 1 . 2/28/2012
Very nice idea! When I first started reading this I wondered if the Ministry was maneuvering Lucius or Lucius was maneuvering the Ministry. As it is, it seems the Ministry maneuvered Lucius very, very neatly!
It would be interesting seeing the drastic change in Lucius Malfoy after his 'sentence' finishes.
Incidentally, I am not in favor of the death penalty for murder, and were it possible I would rather favor something like the Amnesia; as it is we spend years leaving such people behind bars to spend the rest of their natural lives in prison. Why not turn them into productive human beings who will no longer kill others?

Excellent! Would that this was the way things truly went in the books.

I'm with Kingsley Shacklebolt on this one. There's no way to make a potion with temporary effects be sufficiently punitive for something like an aveda kedavra curse that causes no pain or injury, just death. There's no way that a few minutes (or even an hour or more) of cruciatus pain can make up for the resulting permanent insanity that is a secondary effect of the curse. Then there are victims like Moody who have permanently lost limbs, had disfiguring scars, etc. And what about secondary victims like orphans or Neville who lost his parents even though they didn't die? And then there's the fact that some people are simply insensitive and don't feel things to the same extent as others, either because they were thick-skinned to begin with, or they were trained to ignore physical pain or mental suffering?

Different, strange, and a beautiful idea.
Thank you for writing it, I really enjoyed it.
I would have liked a more thorough paragraph (or two) of Lucius' punishment. I just wish that Harry could have given it to the Dursleys- - -they NEED it!

AMAZING! omg i can't believe you. all your stories are good, but that was something else. i am definitely putting that on my fave list. my heart is going faster at the terror. i don't suppose you'd be able to continue it. pleease consider it, but i have no idea how you'd do it so... :S
| demonicnargles chapter 1 . 10/5/2009
That was really awesome. Wow. Somehow, I am not surprised they all choose the third potion.
| Karl Thoc chapter 1 . 9/6/2009
You see, this is exactly the reason why you back up your memories in an off site location and arrange a time-delayed contingent restoration.
| Sean Mulligan chapter 1 . 5/8/2009
A great story. A sequel about what happens to Lucius might be nice. Re Someguyfawkes, I disagree with you about the death penalty.
| katdemon1895 chapter 1 . 11/16/2008
those potions were positively brilliant, the name for the second was a nice touch
can't really think of anything else to say other than well done on an excellent story
| Shanti Ame chapter 1 . 11/13/2008
Lovely. I really liked the characterization of the trio. And the ending is great.
| Tamira chapter 1 . 8/1/2008
Oh, wow, I remember this story! i read it some time ago, but did not review, even though it's DARN good!
That's a clever sort of punishment, it's really good!
I like this story, as it is ver intelligent and has some nice twists...
