I liked this a lot. I admit I was hoping that Harry's magic would change his face... like how his face was sometimes different for him and that he could effect it but just didn't know it. But this is really good too.

I love the marriage of Hephaestus and Aphrodite in greek mythology, and this takes everything I love about it and adds Drarry. So...

Awww, such angst! Damn...
Glad Draco could finally open his eyes!
Now I'm off to homework! (you know, I think I may have a problem...)

Draco is making me so angry. He's being an asshole and ugh. I love this story.

I truly believe that Scorpius was the best part of the entire fanfic. I am rather sorry to say that Draco and Harry annoyed me to no end in this fic, with Harry and his stubborn Gryffindor pride about 'bearing pain', and Draco not able to love someone for something as trivial as scars. I couldn't help feeling rather ticked off at that. Nevertheless, I truly do love your style of writing; wheew, and this was written about 8 years back! Well done, all the same. I look forward to reading more of your works!

Such a mesmerizing story. Such deep meaning. You've fully ultilized the personality of both characters in full potential. I'm amazed by the plot. Am heads over heels in love with this story.

Realistic to the point I freakin cried when Draco kissed Harry on his deformed face and accepted him. Beautiful.

Hmmmmm... So, I conclude that this was an interesting story.
While I personally thought Draco was a little shit, pardon my phrasing, because of how he only values beauty above all... I also concede that it was an interesting take on that kind of person. I mean that, well, Draco wasn't completely shallow; he had feelings, he cared. He was just really honest about how much he valued beauty (and having grown up how he did and what part of society he lives in, it's no wonder).
And I actually think it's unfair and unrealistic to expect someone to turn their principles on end at a drop of the hat, regardless of how unreasonable the principles themselves are- I like how you didn't have him just do an about face. HOWEVER, in this last chapter particularly, I can see him working through changing himself. I really like how he's putting in effort, and it's a legitimate self-confrontation in a way. And I like how you showed these efforts to try to change himself- he realized exactly how he had hurt Harry, and tried to get over his feelings of disgust, even if it's taking time.
I also like how Harry himself had faults. His refusal to seek out other means of possible cure was defeatist and ridiculous- and his refusal to use the pain-relieving spells even a LITTLE was dumb, although admittedly I can see his angle on not wanted to get addicted. But still, I like how Harry had faults, and he also had some "give" in him, while Draco was changing himself- it wasn't a one-sided evolution, even if Draco had a larger fault to get over.
I also really liked Scorpius. Haha, that kid... :P
The spells they put on him seem a bit horrifying. But I like how the kid turned out. He could have easily been the pretentious twerp kind of character... x.x But I think he was a neat kid! ...haha, "You made lots of noise and kept me up, and you stink. you should take a shower. that's all. here, catch the doxie!" xD xD
So, all-in-all, while i personally think it's a totally risky kind of thing to touch on... I like how this turned out. I like how you characterized everyone; with the way some people really DO value beauty in the real world, it's neat how Draco represents the two sides of how some of these people CAN change, and also how difficult it is- so we can appreciate their efforts when they do and not get hung up on bitterness. It was a nice balance between the righteous hurt and anger, the reform, and the forgiveness.

Wow, draco's a complete bastard.
...I'm not certain that it would be considered a healthy relationship if they were to get back together...
...*sigh* But i'll keep reading a bit, because I'm curious. :P
