Reviews for The Substitute
OriksGaming chapter 1 . 5/30/2016
This is a really unique idea; I just can't get on bored with Harry being a golem. Magical creature(or construct in this case) Harry stories aren't fun for me, especially if Harry's not on top of the food chain. Making him subhuman really doesn't appeal to me.

Very nice, I have liked all of your fics so far.
I vaguely guessed that they should have made a mistake, left the golem and baby Harry in the crib together and taken the golem with them by accident. Baby Harry's connection to the golem in Avalon acted as a sort of not-horcrux/ anchor which pulled his soul back in after it was expelled by the killing curse.
At his death I think it would have been wonderfully bitter if they found this out - found they had vilified the 'real' Harry. A bite back at the adult Potters for being so selfish. I'd hope that they wouldn't reject their golem son for it though.
I simply felt that that Harry was too perfect to be real - too humble, too good at everything, never getting angry - like a perfectly programmed robot basing itself off its 'parents' and stories of what it should be. Especial with it being too good at social interaction for someone whose only other experience is with family and toys.
Just popped in to my head,
Again, great story,

Evet original!
FreelanceBum chapter 6 . 2/6/2016
Love this ending, although I wished it explored further into the ramifications of being (non)human. I felt from the way even his siblings were abandoning him, he was the real golem...but I feel this was a much better ending.

Cheers.

I'm still halfway convinced "real Harry" is actually fake Harry, and they were swapped.

Got to find something happier to read...
You had to know that something like this would happen, they would not have let him live, but there was hope. The tension and expectation was growing, you had to keep reading...

Omg. Bruh. My feels. Nuo. No. I can't. And something is wrong with the returned Potters? Nope I'm good. Could be a number of things. Could just naturally be due to their upbringing and not being around real ppl before. I'm good. I think I will be just fantastic if I don't continue this. Sorry. Not sorry. Bye-bye!
WhatNoMore chapter 6 . 12/22/2015
My goodness, I read this two months ago and it still messing with my head. I can't stop thinking about it. This is just fantastic, a story that really makes you think. A mark of a really great read is something just pops into your mind, hours, days, weeks later, something that you can look back and think fondly of. Easy to say that this has completely done so. I have to go and read some other fandom right now because your people and plot has just ruined me for a while. Excellent work.
