This story was beautifully thought provoking, beyond any fic I've ever read. I love your use of irony throughout the series, as well as quotes and poetry. This piece of writing went beyond any I've ever had the pleasure of reading, questioning the very roots of faith and existence. Just... Brilliant story, and I look forward to starting the final installment (which, because of my need for instant gratification, should be in less than five minutes.) Thanks for putting the time in on this one, and I wish you luck in your future writing endeavors.
Until next time,

Wow. Well that was suitably epic. I must admit that I never saw even half of this story coming. I enjoyed the various nods to King, and the OCs in this story were just as good as the ones in part one.
Having made it this far, I'm curious to see where the author goes with the final installment of the tale.

This series is intensely reminding me of The Dark Tower series by Stephen King. I would bet a lot that joe6991 has read it. Magnificent desolation is the mood I'm getting here.

The only issue i have with this is what happened to the watch Hermione gave Harry for his birthday. with that woldn't he be able to tell the state they are in. other than that this series is absolutely brilliant up to this point. keep up the good work.

I don't quite understand why harry couldn't pull his Firebolt out of the trunk that he has... It seems to me that the only reason given for not flying was because of his loss of his griffin form.

What about the chamber of secrets and his dream about the snake can Harry control it since he can talk to snakes

Fucking hell mate. Just... My God.
This has gone beyond fanfiction. Beyond Harry Potter. This has transcended.

Mm-hm. It's getting super epic here. I love this trilogy to bits, I've read it before, actually, but these bits like in the end of this chapter still massively freak me out. In a super good way. I don't understand why in heck this hasn't gotten more reviews! It's one of the best HP fic series around, as well as your Wastelands series- or maybe I just love fanfics with BAMF!Harry and crazy mindf**k circumstances like this one...
Keep writing fanfics, you are THE best author on - out of the ones whose works I've read, anyhow :)

Aww, he has to wait a year? I hoped he would travel endlessly between parallel universes. :) Oh well, still lots to go, I feel lucky

this is retarded y is he going to school he's in another freakin universe. He could just show dumbledore how powerful he is and how much he has trained instead of farting around pretending to be a school boy

Finally finished this beast. Thinking back, the long journey of reading this mirroring Harry's adventure is what makes it great. Since we spend a long time with Harry on a long quest, it bonds us closer than any character before. It's amazing to think about everywhere Harry has been. I remember his fight on Azkaban which seems so old and trivial by this point.
The trillions upon trillions is a bit much since, even in the massive scope of the story you are trying to convey. Maybe its the word.
"His first thought was that Hermione would love to be here, his second was that he hoped she never was - not if she had to follow the same road he had to get here."
An alternate story featuring a sort of dark Hermione was interesting to think about if she was in Harry's place.

"It certainly did seem, at most times, that existence was doing its best to ensure he was ground down into dust." existence: read as AUTHOR
Still, story is pretty incredible when not being horrendously overdramatic.
I think the "Lost verse of the Darkslayer prophecy" was unnecessary. Personally, I hate prophecies. They are too much of a dues ex machinae. The only time they are good is when they employ a clever little twist, but even that is cliche. People like having control or imagining it anyway. Harry's already got a prophecy or two, but to revisit it was distasteful.
Deep down in his mind, he knew Allarius would never lie? That's crap. He's evil, of course he lies. He lied already saying Tashiama or whatever begged to serve.
Harry's line was pretty decent.

Seriously, what is the point of a guardian if all they do is let things go to hell? They never seem to do anything right. This happens in every story anywhere that involves them.
| ArcaneMaverick chapter 22 . 10/27/2012
You know, I've wondered. Each time someone brings up that Harry has gone dark or is doing it wrong or he is becoming what he fights, I want him to say, "How would you do it then?" I know the point you try to make with that but He seems to be doing things the only way possible. Therefore, that should give him a measure of comfort with what happens.
