I will be honest. I came here becouse a translation of this story which I were reading isn't complited. But now I think that original is better. I love this story, it's so emotinal. I felt all Harry's feelings and I could imagine everything like I was there. It's amazing that you could make story so real and so emotional and still interesting, dynamic and little adventure. I hope you will continue writting this becouse it is amazing.

I can't read this further. I really like the premise of the story, and a lot of the writing. But Harry has to have had his head fucked with royally by the beings that brought him here, because his actions are entirely nonsensical. This is no longer Harry Potter. That may be who the story started out with, but this character is emphatically not Harry in any way. Maybe he has most of the memories, but they pretty much have to be heavily repressed. There's no way for him to have gone through what he did and then act like this without mental manipulation.
Just because he is in the body of a 5-8 year old doesn't mean he should have the childish naivete of a 5-8 year old. Being comforted by your teddy bear(sea shell) is not some genetic predispisition that is present in the body of a child. You don't trust the three dangerous looking men after growing up to 18 like Harry did. You don't complain about how people treat you, spend two days in solitude, then feel crushing despair and loneliness when you lose track of three dangerous people. You don't seek out the strange adults for comfort and hold their hands for reassurance. None of this is anything a biological child is somehow forced to do/feel.
That Harry recognizes he is acting fucked up and yet still does it and is okay with it is even more painful to read.
You have a lot of talent as a writer compared to most fanfic authors but I personally just can't make myself read this particular iteration of Harry. Everything is just wrong from one sentence to the next and it's extremely jarring and immersion breaking. It drags me out of the story and makes me try to process how any of this is supposed to be an 18year old Harry, and I can't find any way to justify it.

Reading how pathetically naive and stupid this Harry is, is painful. I find myself hoping that the Rangers attempt to rape Harry or something. Something to truly show Harry hope moronic and disgustingly pathetic he is being.

I personally don't like how pathetic and un-Harry-like you have made Harry. Very immersion breaking to me.

He’d be far more worried about drinkable water, than food or clothing – especially since he’s warm enough naked!

im finding this to be very boring, mostly due ro harry not doing magic.

I love this! It's so hard for me to find a fic I can read in this fandom. This was so enchanting and what I wanted to come across. I hope Harry adjusts more. Your portrayal is just amazing and I was happy with all the elvish antics. My favorites are Glorfindel and the twins lol. Thanks so much for sharing this! If you update, you can count me in for the ride (even though I'm mostly one of those ghost readers - side effect of being shy even on the computer)!

Well now I'm sad. I knew this would happen when I started reading this story and saw how long since it had been updated. I really enjoyed what's been written so far and I hope you find the drive to continue it.
