Reviews for The Golden Age

for what my comment is worth, its a difficult read. a polarizing look at characters one easily gets attached to and then realises that they are all changelings and we've been tricked with a right rotten little ploy
Cerebrum Aegis chapter 4 . 12/16/2023
I just like that Snape still treats Harry like a piece of shit which somehow got into 'the boy who lived' position. It must be really satishfactory for Snape to berate and have a holding over harry as he has the good bits.

“For the hoary social curse,
Gets hoarier and hoarier,
And it stinks a trifle worse
Than in the days of Queen Victoria…
When they married and gave in marriage,
They danced at the country ball,
And some of them kept a carriage,
And the flood destroyed them all.”

I’m not sure if anyone’s still checking this inbox, but I loved every last word of this fic and hated every last character in it. This is exactly what I’ve always wanted from a HP fic.

May this author’s memory be a blessing.

It's spectacular. Serious and adult, nuanced and subtle. The Dumbledore bashing is a bit harsh for my taste personally, but hard to dispute as a viable reading of canon events. The warts-and-all Hermione is an unusual – but thankfully not unique! – characterization that works wonderfully for this story's tone of languid devastation.

"One of the tabloid reporters had started scanning Hogwarts, a History into his computer, but the device was seized as well."

Lol this reminded me of DH bring leaked. Us muggles aren't quite as quick ;) the guy uploaded just the epilogue and we told him he was full of shit and it was fake so he started scanning the whole book. It was only maybe a week early but the library advance copies were quite a security breech

This was really hard to finish, not because of your writing style, but because of all the things that happen. M
guest chapter 18 . 2/21/2022
Tried to get into this one, but frankly, there are no likable characters here and that makes it very difficult to invest yourself in reading it. I didn’t get a chance to care about Harry & Hermione’s story because the whole time I was trying to figure out why the author felt the need to make them into bumbling fools.
Anon chapter 14 . 12/3/2021
I realize this is very old, but for what it’s worth, your Harry and Hermione are extraordinarily ugly people. Your vision, of course, but I think it falls flat.
DeathToSnakes chapter 24 . 11/19/2021
All style, no substance. This story is like reading a art house film. It even has the same amount of drug use!
Guest chapter 24 . 11/16/2021
well done

Just denying justice like that is wrong.
Handers chapter 24 . 7/9/2021
This is one of the greatest fanfiction I have ever read. The ideas are original and the writing is good. It made me think of The Fortune of the Rougons, the inability of both Harry and Hermione to truly integrate with magical society, both of them unable to truly achieve their real goals and condemned to play a game of which they ignore the deeper rules.
Guest chapter 24 . 6/19/2021
WOW! WHAT A STORY! I loved it very much! Now I know why Lucius was acting this way, he had predicted the future and acted like the Slytherin he was. And the last part, well it was quite ambiguous, but I should like to think that the wizards fared, if not well through the crisis and then made the wizarding world a PROPER secret and not like the lazy way JKR had made it in her books.
Guest chapter 22 . 6/19/2021
WOW! It was a masterpiece. How you are being super sarcastic with the potion thing, that how everything fits the frame made by JKR only if we conjure up something as ridiculous as a calming potion. But if we don't go by her plans, it would have been very interesting to see them all GROW UP and move on from the familiar grounds to new territories. It could make grounds for another fanfic if you think about the possibilities of things going in less condescendingly stupid way than written by JKR in her 'epilogue'! It was as if she never wanted them to grow and move on with live, she wanted them to ALWAYS be together in and around the world she created, not liking the idea that her characters would have wanted something else, something NEW for themselves other than her inept wizarding world!
Guest chapter 20 . 6/19/2021
WOW! It was a good ending, but again, Narcissa and Lucius were very OOC. Yes, they all were friends, but Lucius is OOC for most of the part in this fic. I understand he is manipulating Harry and all, but it would have been good to have a P.O.V of him while dealing with Harry and the lot.
