| Balthanon chapter 1 . 12/28/2015
Very interesting story, though I'll admit that I'm not sure how that last situation would have overturned the life debt that Sirius holds to Salazar. You would also think that even if he thought giving Harry to Salazar unavoidable, Dumbledore would also recognize that Harry will never trust him in any significant way after if he doesn't begin to make it up. Not that that is likely anyway.

That was mindblowing. I was stunned beyond measure, at how good the story turned out to be. I'm always on the look out for these 'dark' stories, so I'm really glad that I found this story. That was absolutely wonderful.

It's your fault anyway, goat-sucker...
I hate manipulative men like that. Mostly. If they stood in my way.

| Icefield chapter 1 . 4/12/2015
Well, OK. So it took me two re-reads to finally realize exactly what happened in that last 'ritual' Slytherin enacted while Harry was drunk... Naive, much?
Though to be fair, the first time I read it (back a while go), the mood was so dark and hopeless it actually scared me a little. After I had some time to digest that, I read it again in detail, and only then can I appreciate Slytherin's subtle manipulation and not-so-subtle powerplay.
As much as I enjoy the noble and misunderstood Slytherin pictured in some fanfics, I just can't help but feel that this version of Salazar Slytherin- powerful, fearsome, manipulative, vengeful, as dark and selfish as history depicts yet oh-so-charming and seductive when he wants to be- might be the closest to the actual founder of the serpent house described in canon. Masterfully done.
I just love your stories!

Have to say I really enjoy this story. I'd love to see where things go from here. I realize that it has been over 6 years since this story was written but it's just awesome. Your writing is quite skilled, and the plot line is good. I really hope you revisit this story again and continue it on from here as this plot has a ton of potential.

...Dumbledore is quite the bastard. I'd hate anyone trying to sell someone off like that.
