Wow, I really enjoyed your story like I haven't any in a long time now! I guess it's one of the few post dh I read and I really think you had an amazing idea, keeping the characters quite believable while at the same time inventing an absolutely new and unique plot. It is really fascinating how deeply you let wets readers enter Harrys mind. I was never really sure if he was in control of being a character or not. Giving him Draco as an anchor and his development to realising he is all these people instead of them being more than he is really touched me.
Additionally to enjoying the story a lot I also liked your style of writing very much.
So to conclude, I am very impressed and I hope you are still writing, maybe even outside of some fandome!

Truly one of the not remarkable and unique pieces I have ever encountered

fuck this is good. really fucking long but i mean the story is recounted with eloquence and enthusiasm and the recurring phrase with the merciless voice is actually a little inspiring. it’s hella long and taking me forever to get through but it’s making me think and that’s always good. i do hope the plot moves a little more quickly these next couple chapters, but regardless, you’re a fucking amazing writer and no wonder you have like 279 harry potter fan fictions and counting. proud of you.

I’ve read this twice now. Who knew the second reading would be even better than the first?
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! (I had to exclaim something, since my reviews hardly come without one xD)

I must say, you might be my favorite writer. Thank you for developing such intricate characters.

Wow this story is so incredibly well done. I love how the text really makes it clear which persona is talking when it's Harrys mind, and how Dracos deductions to find out whom he's talking to are followable. I love the amount of lines of conflict and perspectives in the story. I love how sanity is defined as the ability to find your way back to yourself, not the inability to lose your way for a bit, and how sanity does not fully require self reliance. How having to lean on another person is seen as not just acceptable but as as natural as standing on your own. How no relationship relies on instant insight on everything but rather on trust in giving and receiving informationor not.

I really enjoyed the story. The writing style was a little convoluted at time but the essence of the message was good. I'm not quite sure where Nusante's sense of entitlement came from but hopefully he will soon get over it. I'm glad you ended the story with the battle still waging on because it is reflective of the currents battles that are still ongoing. I really appreciated the fleshing out of Harry and Draco. Good job!

Wow. That was an epic tale. Like, truly epic - emotionally, politically, EVERYTHING. You have an incredible imagination, and I absolutely love the characters - especially Harry, ALL of Harry - and world you have created here. I loved it all. Thank you so much for sharing.

I love would you created here. Especially the first chapters filled with oposing mind games were incredible. After everything settled between Draco and Harry and thus the story became calmer it lost that little addicting edge that made it beyond extraordinary. It was still really good.
I look forward to reading more from you and am glad that I found a story I want to return to. And I will, especially if the need for some tension will get to me.

I loved this. From Harry's conversation as Elizabeth to the last kiss, this was a good chapter.
| AnyankaEllie chapter 50 . 1/17/2017
That was a tense and very interesting story. And I liked that in this story you wrote about a society where gay couples are banned ni fact. It was interesting to read, thank you.

I couldn't stop reading.
And I absolutely loved it.
Especially how things started to come together closer to the end. There were explanations,and they were good and believable. Great even. And it was all very balanced, for example I wouldn't have seen/realised the how bad Harry's mental health might be-or any danger to it- without Hermione being the part that she was- even though at the start,and being sympathetic to Harry, I would have liked her to be nice to him,not run off to the healers,etc.
Also I love taking ideas,small pictures, sometimes just words that I find in fiction as metaphors for real life. Uff, I fear that might not have made any sense to anyone but me. I do know that fiction isn't real life,of course, and that and that writer's often make use of what they call creative licence. And anyway it would be dangerous to take anything completely one-to-one as to real and only truth. So I hope I always avoid that.
But I loved the "solution" you, or rather your Draco found, to start Harry gaining confidence, to realise that he has all those talents and is everyone in a sense and that he could gain self-confidence from that that.
And to me, I love the picture that formes in my mind behind that, where a person with different excused, hiding behind different feelings/masks/etc might draw .nevermind if that didn't make sense,at least it's lead me to the following words,that hopefully express what I also feel towards your story:
Like Harry, although only maybe in a small way in single situations, I,and probably most everyone, have also hidden some things,sometimes.
And -at least in my reading experience- your tale is very encouraging and empowering .(on top of being entertainment and a great delightful read;)
So thank you very much! :)
