Thank you for this delightful story!
It's very well written and I love how you handle the relationships between the characters. I also appreciate the bits of gritty plot you add to keep this sweet story from becoming sickeningly sweet.

Thank you for the fic. I need some time away from your writing. It is very emotional for me.

Vernon and Petunia Scholarship Fund is enough to them spinning in their graves. This fic is helping me see things clearly.

Darker than I usually read, but also grabbed my attention. I needed something like this.

It simultaneously feels like it has been far more than 12 years since you first wrote this fic, my friend, and also far shorter of a duration. Your story has never left me, and I come back here every year or so to re-read it.
It's held up to the test of time extraordinarily well and still feels just as relevant and applicable to real life now as it was when you wrote it. Aside from the more serious topics contained herein, I've particularly enjoyed how well you did when, back in 2010-2011 you were writing somewhat prophetically about muggle society and technology in 2017-18. For example, you emphasized the significance and ubiquitous nature of cell phones, something that has only increased in the intervening years.
But above all else, what makes your story so relevant today is the way you address child abuse and foster care. After many of my re-reads of this fic, I've frequently found myself doing a deep drive into RL research and stories about these Enormously important topics. It has turned out that this research has been extremely helpful to me. My sister and I have been attempting to help house and educate three young cousins of ours after their family fell apart a year ago. I cannot emphasize enough how helpful this knowledge has turned out to be. So much so, in fact, that I've had to confess to my sister that my starting point in accruing this knowledge was a fanfic. It was both an awkward way to have to confess my fanfiction addiction, and a huge help in demonstrating how GOOD fanfic can be — just as much as any published book. I could easily paraphrase that Jane Austen quote about the significance of novels: “It is only a [fanfic]... or, in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of wit and humour, are conveyed to the world in the best-chosen language.”
So, for the umpteenth time, I must again thank you for pouring so much of your heart and soul into writing this. I treasure it dearly.

Oh, I so love this story! it is definitely going on my re-read list. This last chapter, especially Harry's last dream, just touched my heart. Sev as a guardian angel just works perfectly, and all three, Harry, Tim and Sev get a new start. Now I'm off to read more of your stories. I'm sure that I will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed this one.

Great story, thank you!

I'm so glad that Tim seems to be alright! Good for Harry!
| WeisseHex chapter 24 . 9/2/2022
Well, THAT totally sucks, doesn't it?
| WeisseHex chapter 19 . 9/1/2022
Well of course the child's father will want the boy, but for nefarious reasons, I believe.
| WeisseHex chapter 8 . 9/1/2022
I am wondering just WHO Tim's father is?!
| Leapyearbaby29 chapter 1 . 8/29/2022
I’m confused. Who is Tim and where did he come from? How old is he?
