All the trials in the room were very well done and interesting. It's good you went into the aftermath as well.

| Slytherin'sAngelOfMusic chapter 28 . 5/6/2020
the ending? perfection. i am shocked beyond my core, a skill which i noticed you to have very clearly. this whole thing was well-done and brilliant and i cant wait to reread and relive the magic of your writing all over again.

| Slytherin'sAngelOfMusic chapter 17 . 5/6/2020
this chapter hurt me. my jaw dropped and i had to call my boyfriend and tell him wtf i was feeling because my poor brain cant even comprehend the shitstorm of pain you put me through. you're brilliant. "I guess I can't stop from hoping that things will get better." that quote? that was painful. that resonated in my soul. so thank you, author, for punching me in the gut so hard that i completely changed my view of everything around me.

This was such a beautiful, complex journey. We've got two pretty messed up characters, but I love how you've managed to so elegantly begin to stitch them up together. I can't wait to read your other stuff!
| Aurelian16 chapter 17 . 5/4/2020
So normally I prefer to read to the last chapter and then review so that I can tell the author the fullness of how wonderful they are, but this chapter absolutely deserves its own comment. I can't tell you how many times your words solidly punched me in the stomach. It's not easy to make me cry while reading, which goes to show how alive you've made this story, these characters. The gun, oh the gun why would you do that?! That was so brilliant and so shattering that I had to stop reading for a moment before ravenously continuing. I love how you've developed Snape and Harry's relationship; there have been so many incredible moments you've forced them into, particularly when Harry comes back to heal Snape. Harry and I (and almost certainly Snape) have similar feelings towards Dumbledore at the moment, but I begrudgingly have hope for him yet. I cannot praise your writing enough, and I cannot wait to read the rest of this story and go see your other content. I hope you have a phenomenal day!

Wonderful story. Sometimes there was a little to much bickering for my taste where none of the two wanted to admit to anything and/or was over-reacting. But everyone was in character - even Dumbledore. I always thought he had it in him to just meddle in peoples lives no matter if it was his business or not.
Thank you for finishing it.

I just had to stop reading long enough to let you know how much I enjoy this story. Finally somebody is pointing out that Dumbledore is going over dead bodies for the greater good.

It was so nice. Hope you u write such stories more often

I can't really put my words into my feelings on this fic, I actually had to put off writing this review for hours to process it
your characterisation is absolutely spot on, everyone included in here not only feels true to character, but like a fully realised person. Snape especially I was so pleasantly surprised by. too often in fic he is badly written, or rewritten entirely into something new. you didnt hide from how awful Snape is, coz let's face it, he's a cunt. but instead of hiding all of his faults so that his relationship with Harry would work, you tore them kicking and screaming to light, and at the end of the day, he still kind of sucks. he's better, but still sucky.
and Harry too. GOD I love your Harry. Harry's fucked up, in lots of ways, and I don't appreciate when he is made out to be helpless in stories like these. he feels so incredibly real here it hurts. he's scared, he rages, he does things he regrets, but he's also so so kind. I love that he and Snape's relationship is rocky, and hard, and pretty crappy at times. again, it makes it feel so genuine, like these are two real people im reading about. they're both really intense, and stubborn, and don't deal with things well, and put together, it's pushed to the extreme
I also really liked your Dumbledore, I think you really captured all the difficult nuances of his character
and when Harry is reunited with Ron and Hermione! (；ω；) I love them so much. gah, how Harry felt at ease for the first time in forever, how downright terrified for him when they realised how bad things were, and how they were constantly concerned with keeping him safe. I love them so much
I also loved Harry and Snape's arguments, especially as you get further and further in and they know exactly how to push each other's buttons. god that argument in the great hall man, at each other's throats
I've probably said this a million times, but I'm so in awe at how this fic doesn't shy away from ugly. things are bad, and it's not the kind of bad you can repackage as pretty or noble or romantic. it's bad and things are unstable and you don't know what's going to happen next
but even though this fic is really dark, and wholly centred on abuse, it never really feels bogged down or wailing in its own misery. it feels raw and ugly and vulnerable
I can honestly say this has become one of my favourite fics ever, and definitely my favourite characterisation of Snape. I can't sing it's praises enough

man I love Ron, Harry, and Hermione's friendship so much. I never realised till you pointed it out how much Harry would appreciate rarely being doubted by them, so different to everyone else around him
