A very gripping chapter, and I'm worried that it hasn't been updated in so long.
I've enjoyed the previous chapters, and that includes the emphasis on wizarding society, which you don't see a lot of in fanfic. I also note that Harry/Orion is slowly shifting his perspective from only championing the Muggleborns to seeing both sides of the Wizards-vs.-Muggles controversy. There's no easy answers for him, either, no deus ex machina wave of a wand to resolve this controversy. It will take a lot of work, a lot of failures with any victories, and more importantly, a lot of time to change the views of both wizards and Muggles. I look forward to the journey.

I'd just like to wish cosette-aimee a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and I'm eagerly awaiting more of this fanfic.
You have maintained a surprising plot, skillfull writing and all in all, the occassional (and rare!) spelling mistakes is the only thing wrong with this pearl amongst other works of fanfiction. These rare finds are what makes it worth skimming through hundreds of boring, predictable and badly composed fan stories on this website.

Wow i didnt see that coming! Cant wait for the next chapter

I've reread the story, and I remember why I liked it so much. I think this is a much more realistic way to fix things; I'm glad Harry isn't all-powerful. I wonder what will happen now that Arcturus is dead. I hope his wife won't stir up too much trouble; Arcturus was my favourite. Though then again, maybe this will stir up purebloods; since Voldemort/one of his followers attacked one of 'them', maybe they'll think that there's more truth to the rumors and fight harder against his return.

Poor Harry... nothing is ever simple for him, is it? Its interesting that you waited 16 chapters to reveal the story's title, or so I presume the story's title meant the gift of being an Assessor, even if Harry only thought he was pretending until recently...
| Soulless Traveler chapter 21 . 12/15/2013
Oh my god. A stupid bunch of mudbloods on the reviews. I...at least know how to appreciate a well written story that actually makes more than two of my brain cells rub together. More like too many of them. I love this story and hope to hear from you soon.

You killed grandfather Black! I can't believe you!

Great story, too bad it is abandoned. But thanks for leaving it up. I can see where this one was hard to write, but now sirius is head of house black.

I really enjoy your style of writing, and your handling of the plot of this story. You write in shades of gray, with characters having realistic strengths, and weaknesses that seem consistent. I guess that is what I enjoy most about your writing here. You create rules for your universe, and follow them. The actions of your characters make sense, and there are good and bad consequences to those actions. It makes a complete world, without the gaping plot holes that distract from the narrative. That's rare in fanfiction, and really fun to read. So keep up the good work!

NO CRITICISM should be related to the start of this story! It has my humble approval.
| Poseidonschild chapter 22 . 12/11/2013
Keep working on this! You have done a great job of putting together a story that still exists in the universe JKRawling created. I could easily believe your explanations and reasonings were truly what was behind the political strife in the canon text. I can't wait to find out what will happen next and I love Slytherin Harry. He's not overbearing about it and you left enough Gryffindor tendencies that I could believe this Harry can exist and in fact does exist in the last book. Excellent job!

I LOVED this story, thanks so much for sharing it.
