I seriously can't get over how awesome this story is. This is what fanfiction should be, something that can tell a wonderful story by using and adding to the existing world and characters without wallowing in canon. It is stories like these that I reread from time to time to remind myself of that.

Every once in a while, I come across a fic which is just on a whole other level compared to the rest. This is one of those fics. Bravo!

Powerful story, very moving. I really liked you telling the backstory the way you did, very inspired.
I'll certainly read the sequel now!

This is a very interesting take on the potterverse. I'm intrigued by particular roles of NL and HP of this story, and I am looking forward to seeing where the author goes with it.

Words can't describe how highly I regard your writing.
The composition of plot, atmosphere and character setups/developments in every single piece is just so perfect that my vocabulary fails me in describing it.
The magic-concepts you employ are always original and refreshing, unlike 99.99% of the other stuff written up on this page.
Thanks to reading this story, immediately followed by reading the sequel and every other story you wrote, I got interested in fanfiction again after several dozen disappointments. For that, I can only thank you

Poor Hermione, but I wonder what was wrong with her parents (probably the same thing as in canon).
| Guest chapter 6 . 5/28/2013
good plotting, pace and masterful exposition. I think I would have liked more of an insight to old magic but I hope that will come in the second story.

This story was frickin' awesome. Just flat out wow.

Sometimes I feel I've been on fanfiction for too long. I start to believe I've read all the good stories. I wonder, when I've trawled through 100 stories and can't seem to get past the first paragraph, if it's worth the effort. I never wanted to know what MaleVeela!Harry or HP/LV slash! was. I know more about Griphook that some of my family members. I don't care if Hermione's favourite book is 'On The Road' or any other such avant-nonsense. I miss the wonder and joy that used to come with reading the Harry Potter series.
And sometimes, I find I story that reminds me why I came to fanfiction in the first place. A story filled with such exotic charm and horror, that it shows up every re-working of Harry's sixth year - with Manipulative!Dumbles - for the trash it is.
This is what fanfiction should be like; exploring the endless possibilities of JK's magical world, and delighting in the host of characters we can play with. With fluid prose and taut storytelling to boot? You spoil us, enembee!
The point of this overly-long spiel was to thank you, enembee, for such an original, captivating and well-focused piece of fiction. And next time I read a description of Remus Lupin's perfectly toned abdominal muscles, I'll come and read it again.

Great. Really wonderful writing. I can't believe this has so few reviews. It deserves a lot more.

Cool story, your Harry has some serious mood swings.
