I'm going to start this off with - wow.
In the beginning, I wasn't sure what to expect. The first two chapters put me off as I really can't handle second-hand embarrassment. For the longest, this story was just sitting on my FFN reader app. A couple of days ago, I finally found the courage to read this again (albeit I did skim those parts that I'm sure I had second-hand embarrassment before truly reading). I sincerely applaud you.
In the beginning (20-30ish) chapters, I was really happy with how you sowed their relationship. In a way, it seemed so healthy and consensual - far more than what you'll usually find, either online or on a bookstore shelf. But you also didn't hide how easy it can be for everything to get twisted. You didn't hide the truth of the matter; I daresay, you reinvented the quote "It takes two to tango", because it certainly took both Harry and Voldemort to fuck one another over, metaphorically, emotionally, mentally, physically, and literally.
I tend to compared this story to Bonded One by Stephke23. That story could be this one's polar opposite, one in which Harry did in fact succeed in convincing Voldemort from falling too far into the Dark Arts. This story depicts the both of them falling into the Dark Arts and the madness that came with it. It was quite the descent from high places.
It was beyond interesting (and occasionally maddening or sometimes created anxiety within me) to see Harry's POV become rather angry, so full of life, to dull and overall blank to the world around him, to vibrant, but not quite as colorful, to this somewhat content yet tinged with madness sort of POV. As I hope to write a character who has to deal with their immortality and everything that could come with it, I find myself very inspired by your work. I had basic ideas at first, but reading this gave me more of an idea on how to go about it.
All the same, this was a beautiful story that I am sincerely glad to have read. I find it unlikely that I'll read it again due to me having a history of avoiding series that put me through a rollercoaster of emotions.
You story is among The Emperor of Konoha (in which everyone kept dying), We Three (in which people won't talk to each other), The List (in which no one wants anyone to die), the Roommates Trilogy (in which all I want is for everyone to die so that they may be spared from all that bullshit), Little Seer (in which fuckery), Phantom of Truth (n which ghost powers suck), and Misery Business (in which fuck the future).
I shall now refer to your story as (in which Harry and Tom fuck over each other in every way possible). Thank you for writing this and I hope you do well with your travels and future. :)

i wanna be yours by arctic monkeys - song i'm listening to while drowning in feels
this hurts to read. i can understand why harry condones tom's psychopathic behavior. i would. tom has never been more attractive than he is in this story. and harry's cute, too.
their relationship is so complex, strange, and deliciously forbidden, and i'm so invested in it. if this doesn't end well, i'll be devastated. tom needs harry, and harry needs tom.
thanks for writing this 3

Wow that was such an amazing story that I'm having problems expressing what ii think about it. You did an amazing job at building up the story, the characters, the relationships, and the plot of the whole thing. This story was so detailed and well thought out that it seems to me to be almost like a back story to the canon that I am impressed you were able to do this. I have nothing else I am able to say to explain how great this story was so thank you for putting so much time and thought into a story that has brought me such joy.

I have to say I hate these last two chapters(not the actual chapters just what is going on). Obviously tom and Harry's relationship ssng healthy but it tears ms up that harry now seems to hate(though he still loves) tom and is suffering spending time with tom. I fear for what is going to happen next and am worried that harry is going to end up hating tom even more or hating the things tom makes him do. Great story can't wait to see what happens next.

I'm going to be completely honest here - imo, Harry/Nott would have made more sense as an endgame ship. I really loved how you wrote their friendship, how they comforted and looked out for each other while being inside Tom's inner circle. They both didn't agree with the war and wanted a better future, and they raised Theodore together.
I get how this is a Harry/Tom fic, but at the end, I think Tom lost all semblance of who he was at the beginning of the fic. His relationship with Harry was pretty much shattered, fairly abusive (Tom cursing Harry when Harry felt regret, taking away emotions and memories), and based on a lot of lies. I had a hard time believing that Harry would just go back to him, after all Harry went through during the war.
/just my two cents. Anyways, thanks for the interesting read, no matter what my weird opinions are! This fic really glued me to my screen, and I understand that you told the story you wanted to tell.

I don't see how one conversation with dumbledore(a man harry seems to hate) would make him question his relationship with tom so much.

This really came together in the final chapters. I love this; thank you.
| Tatiana-P chapter 40 . 6/18
Their relationship is so fucked up, but you somehow manage to pull it off... I can't wait to see how this will end.
