I like this! Always a sucker for those revelation fics, especially the truth spell/potion ones haha!
But- I gotta be honest. They flip gears wayyy too easily. Even in canon it took them a while to grow used to the idea and treat him somewhat affectionately. Even Phoebe, who knew the longest, was still rude and dismissive for a long time after her private reveal. So it's a bit jarring how swiftly this was resolved here.
But I still enjoyed it. :D Looking forward to the upcoming reveal in Lonely Light of Morning!

I'm a self-respecting Chris lover, and I haven't written a revelation story... oh, hold on, yes I have. ;)
Speaking of revelations, I loved this one. I really liked how you made Chris hate the thought of him being conceived without love, instead of him hating the thought of his parents having sex altogether. It may not keep entirely with his character, but it does keep with the Halliwell way of thinking, and Chris is a Halliwell after all. :)

Great job. :)

It doesn't need to be something extreme to sever the parent/child bond. It's something really simple.
No contact for years definitely does it.
Stealing from a child helps.
Selfishness or self-absorbed, even perceived.
Unconditional love? Myth.
Especially on the child's part.
All that being said, good story.

Not a bad story but I find it a bit too simple... like they apologize and he's okay with everything and happy end. Chris is a cool character in part because he's got issues and stuff, you sort of brushed all that off. I mean even in the show things were more complicated than that and that's saying something.
"You're family. My son. And I've treated you worse than a criminal."
So it's ok to treat like a criminal a guy who traveled in time to save your son as long as he is *not* family? I am not saying that is wasn't a bit like that, but not so obviously. It just makes Piper and the others look like bad people, really. And idiotic at that.
Anyway... not bad. I just feel you could have developed it a bit more to make it more realistic.

a lil too much acceptance from Chris letting everything change so quickly like that but otherwise good :)

I don't think feelings that strong and angry are just a complex. He must have something said or done to him to back up those Chris' anger.

Great story. I love the revelation part. I liked all the questions leading up to it. I loved the angst. But, I'm not that they would forgive that fast once they found out they were his son. I think it might take more time.

I really liked this one shot. My heart went out to Chris when he realized that his parents had to conceive them by a lust potion. How horrible for him. I liked how the revelation came out, and the acceptance. It would be pretty cool if you write more of this kind of fics :)

I am such a horrible person! I've read this story like a million times and I've never reviewed! So I really liked it (obviously, I've read it a bunch) and I think that you had a totally brilliant characterization of Chris... there are a couple of lines in here that just scream Chris at the top of their voices. Congradulations on a tremendous story.
