Poor Neville! I hope Augusta tells Dumbledore to take a hike!
tgraham00 chapter 22 . 2/2
Dumbledore did, in fact, owe Sirius a justification after 6 years. He left the man in prison to rot, without a trial, and without even asking if what he believed about Sirius was true. Dumbledore went to bat for an actual Death Eater, but left his own fighter to die in jail. He absolutely owed Sirius any explanation he requested.

I know this is an old fic now, but in case anyone is going through older content, like myself, and maybe also perusing the reviews... A little note for you for both any writing you may do, or just life in general...

Men don't always go to...bordellos etc, don't always call sex lines, for the intended purposes.

They also use these services to simply have someone to talk to.

I remember the story of one woman who had to quit her job as a phone sex operator because she couldn't take the guilt of lying to these men about who she was. They would be so honest and raw with her, and she felt she was deceiving them.

Whatever the author was hinting at in this chapter could be a couple options; the women bring mistreated, which I don't believe the establishment would stand for, or that they felt so weary etc after a customer because of what that customer me that be going through in their life.

Because society doesn't seem to think men need anyone to talk to, that they're supposed bro bottle it all up and Yada Yada. Phone sex lines, bordellos... there's a certain level of aninimity there for them, a separation from their life, in which they feel safe to talk about their problems. Is that fair on the women? No. It's not fair on either party. A man shouldn't have to feel like he has the hide like that.

So while I can't speak for what the author here intended with that line, it's a little factoid for all of you out there to think on, new information about the world.
Dark-Prince-of-Clowns chapter 3 . 11/5/2022
I'm sorry... *pokes my ear* WHO did NEVILLE survive to be called "The Boy Who Lived"?

Is this an AU where NEVILLE was attacked by Voldemort?

Because Bella & co NEVER hurt HIM, NOR did Neville in any way stop them. They were caught by AURORS.

So WHY does he suddently have the nickname as of he somehow defeated Voldemort? Especially when people ALREADY KNOW that it was HARRY.

Humans are stupid, but not THAT stupid.

Maybe calling him the-prophecy-child or something, sure. (With pure propaganda, and because the prophecy isn't known before)

Buuut... everyone thinks Voldemort is dead, soo...

I'm getting a headache trying find a SHRED of logic in your story... please help? O.o
Dark-Prince-of-Clowns chapter 2 . 11/5/2022
Why do people think Neville is some sort of "spare" for the prophecy?

A prophecy is either about a person, or it is not. If the one in the prophecy dies, the Fares doesn't exchange it; it consider's the prophecy done with. (In this case; the prophecy has been fufillled. It never said Voldemort had to kill Harry, just that one of the two had to die for the other to live.)

Now, I GET why the old goat would CLAIM so. Propaganda is a valuble tool in a war.

But Augusta strikes me as smart than that. So why does SHE believe in it? It makes NO sense!

(I can see her agreeing to USE the boy as a figurehead -maybe... UNLESS she loves him, then she'd protect him from dumbledore's machinations instead.)

But believe in something so illogical? Neville isn't even Marked by him.

That's just weird.

That aside, however, this story is pretty intresting thus far. And fairly well-written overall.

It will be intresting to read the rest of it. _

Of all the things in this fic the fact that Cedric won annoys me the most lol
Mia711 chapter 1 . 7/30/2022
I love this soooo much
Matan777 chapter 1 . 5/27/2022
I feel like its a very anticlimactic way to reveal that Harry is aliveā€¦
Simianpower chapter 23 . 4/16/2022
That was the ugliest, clunkiest, most forced-plot garbage I think I've ever read, out of literally THOUSANDS of fanfics. Is that REALLY the best you could do? This story was actually good before this bullshit. The past couple of chapters have been purely awful.

If you wanted Voldemort to come back, and Voldemort knew that Harry was alive, and Barty was there, then WHY NOT FOLLOW THE CANON PLOT?! Fuck, if you don't want to bother with that, just handwave it away in a couple of paragraphs! Instead you have Magical Barty running across one random lucky encounter after another where everyone near him babbles mindlessly about some random British folks that they knew YEARS AGO, then the utter shit of this chapter. What the FUCK possessed you to ruin the story so thoroughly in two chapters? I almost quit after the last chapter, and this one's worse in every way.
Simianpower chapter 20 . 4/16/2022
Why is Harry suddenly gripping the idiot ball so hard? This isn't in character, and feels very plot-forced. This entire chapter was fucking stupid. This story had been so good until now, but this chapter alone reduces it an entire rank.
