From HP wiki:
Parseltongue is the language of serpents (as well as other magical serpent-based creatures, like the Runespoor) and those who can converse with them. An individual who can speak Parseltongue is known as a Parselmouth.
Harry is Parselmouth, not Parseltongue.

Awwe made me cry, love the story so far.

I like this story! I love how poor Harry try to protect John. It is strange how what Harrry didn't say to John make me thing of the canon and what Dumbledor didn't say to Harry.

This is so mind blowingly awesome. Thank you for sharing.

This is marked complete, but it really doesn't feel that way. John has an explanation but there is no closure. Oh well, I saw a note about a sequel so I'll go check that out.
I despise JKR's Dumbledore, and I'm not fond of the Ancients. I am surprised by the fact that your mixing them together has actually made some stuff make sense and significantly reduced the amount of loathing I general experience when considering DD's existence. Pretty amazing work.

Wow, that was well written. Poor Harry and John though.

I have enjoyed this story immensely. Thank you for writing it, I look forward to the sequel.
The ending was well done, albeit I was left with questions. A small, happy smile graced my lips as I finished the last paragraph.
I do so enjoy endings that entice further exploration, as well as leaving you feeling as though everything is as it should be and will work out as such in due time.
A few critiques of the entire story:
I felt like the relationship between Sheppard and Potter was too rushed. Sheppard at times felt more like a young puppy following Potter than a trained and experianced soldier and man; I would have expected him to have some form of comment, at least to himself, about wether he was genuinely feeling anything for Harry, or if it was a spell (Although, I'm saying this with a grain of salt in mind, because I have only recently started watching SGA - I don't know how his character develops later).
Again, what a wonderful story! I would like to go through and re-read it chapter by chapter, that I may offer my oppinion on each, however knowing my life as I do I understand that I will likely not get around to it for months, if ever. The thought only counts if the other person knows about it, right?
Please be safe and happy throughout the course of your life, and may your inspiration be flowing and everlasting, in all aspects of your life! Thank you once more for giving me several hours of such delight!

The tone of your fic is incredible. It's a little disjointed for most of it, but it comes across as snapshots of realness that kept my interest. There is just a feeling that this could be real even as there was a bit of unreality to what was happening. It's also a bit too real, as in no one gets any happiness. A thoroughly modern epic/tragedy.

really awesome story!

I like this story very much. Despite the holes in places, which you are slowly filling in. Must read more

*breaths humongous sigh of relief*
THANK YOU! Aaah, you have no idea how... how RELIEVED I am that things are finally moving forward! XD

*bashes head against a wall repeatedly*
You have no idea how much this story makes me rage, but I just cannot stop reading it! This isn't an insult to you, and I don't know if that were your intentions but... GOOD JOB. I have never been so frustrated at the characters in a story so much in my entire LIFE.
OH MY GOD Harry keeps shipping John off to all these different places and for freaking WHAT? John was perfectly fine in Atlantis, but Harry removed him. WHY? Harry doesn't want John with him. WHY? So many questions, NOT enough answers.
Also, why is Harry going out of his way to keep John in the dark? Why is John standing for it? Why doesn't John freaking run away? I know I would, no matter HOW freggin curious I was. If everyone was just going to give me half-truths and ship me around like used luggage, I just wouldn't stand for it!
Haha, I feel a little better now after venting! I SOOOOO hope things take a turn for the better soon. I really really do.

...What the hell? What is UP with Harry? One minute he's kicking ass and taking names, and then the next he's letting himself get beat? UUUUHG.
And John, he's... taking it all rather well. I mean, you'd THINK he'd be more upset/mad/defensive, but nope. He's just... taking it all in stride and waiting patiently for answers.
I guess this is good writing, because I'm definitely feeling emotions. Again, I'm not angry at YOU, just at the characters. :P
