This chapter is… wow. Just, wow.
| Alwin-nl chapter 14 . 11/27
I hate Harry being a hypocrite. “I don’t want to burden him” is what dumbledore did to him and he absolutely despised him for it; it also caused unnecessary deaths.
And now he’s doing it himself. What could possibly change if Neville and Hermione know?

Quite an interesting and lovely fic! I quite enjoyed the mysteries, twists, and turns!

Chapter 30, so much pain and heartache, for Harry and the Weasleys. Finally they know the truth.
| hufflepuffiesten chapter 16 . 11/11
Chapter 15 was so sad. Poor, poor Harry. It was bound to happen. Glad to finally see Sirius. This story is so good!
| hufflepuffiesten chapter 10 . 11/10
Wow! It's so intense and riveting, the plot twists! It's so good!
| hufflepuffiesten chapter 5 . 11/9
Loving the funhy moments in the story. Snape's caustic wit is hilarious. The "flashbacks" to the future timeline makes things interesting.

I took a pause in reading fanfiction, but now I'm back into it and I chose this story to re- read since it's been years since I last read it. I'm savouring it this time since I've forgotten alot of it. Original storyline. You are one if my favourite Hinny writers.

Wow! Fekking amazing so far! My eyes aren’t moist reading this, yours are.

Thanks for an interesting and entertaining story. This convoluted scheme that backfired and could have been fatal sure was more dramatic than " we were trying out this charm in a book and, surprise, Scabbers turned into this grubby little man." Harry won't seem evil at all with an unforgivable and a lethal curse on his wand. No really, he won't. No one will ever figure out Pettigrew's memory has been changed. Really. What's the fun without quadruple the risk and complexity. KISS is not nearly as good. Yeah, I know, creative license and all that. Probably...maybe...better than my "All went smooth. The End."

We'll all go kill the Basilisk." I vote for this. Simple. Straightforward.
"Actually," Harry said, equally quiet. "We're not sure if that's wise. Certain events must happen the way they happened last time." And he told them every detail of it, with Ron's help and input. "So we think that Ginny has to do it. ...WHY?. It has to happen the same way. WHY?...We can, of course, take every precaution that no one is Petrified. UNNECESSARY RISK. UNNECESSARY COMPLEXITY...But the Sword of Gryffindor needs to be impregnated with Basilisk venom. ...or you could collect the venom and just drop some on the horcruxes...That's the only safe way to get rid of the Horcruxes, especially if we're unable to get to the fangs." Why wouldn't they get the fangs?
"That's… very wise," Dumbledore said thoughtfully.
"Your portrait helped us," Ron told him. "Ginny will have a coin or something that she'll charm so that the coins Harry and I will carry will send us a message when she starts writing in the diary. Every time."...LIKE THAT'S GOING TO ACTUALLY WORK...
Just kill the snake THEN jab the sword into it, even if you don't get the sword until later. The sword makes for good storytelling but it's not vital to the task.
How's that for a cubic ton of nitpicking? Obviously I know nothing of how storytelling actually works. So, carry on, actual writer! Your story is quite interesting. . Thanks for sharing your talent. Here's my talented novel: They resolved everything in a week. Nothing unexpected, stupid or exciting happened. The End. . My novel gets 20,000 wonderful reviews and 1 review that says DUNDERHEAD! TROLL on your Noveling OWL!

This child’s name, tossed into the Epilogue by JKR, made NO sense in the canon story - I could not imagine Ginny ever letting her husband name their son after two men who tortured him, even if Harry had wanted to (which I also could not imagine.). Your story more than justified this naming, and I thank you for it.

I am re-reading this story after first reading it two years ago. Once again, I am thankful that I only discovered it after it was complete. Once again, the tears started falling at the end of the last chapter and had to be continually brushed away during the reading of this one. Once again, I am thinking that this is one of the most brilliant HP fanfics I have EVER read. This is such an incredible story.

Why does Ginny speak and write like a 19th century debutante?
