NamelessWanderer6 chapter 4 . 2/11
In regards to Harry’s personality change if we could call it that, it is more or less perfectly sensible and logical. After going through torture which no one before has been able to mentally survive intact, his apathy and even contempt towards those around him is only natural. I mean it’s hard to be bothered by Ron’s bad table etiquette when you been crucioed and raped numerous times, that sort of suffering brings about a new perspective towards life.

A part of me mourns the many positive aspects of Harry the have been lost, his kindness and his desire to help others but the other part of me is excited to see where this new Harry goes, assuming the author ever returns to continue this story. I think this Harry would make a very good Slytherin, with his focus on his self interest and with the ease at which he now manipulates and uses those around him.

Now moving on to the OOTP meeting, Dumbledore’s new plan is dumb as fuck, incredibly risky and very in character. Rescuing death eaters and putting the Orders members at risk perfectly encapsulates his saviour complex and also his general negligence towards his followers. I mean in canon, Dumbledore didn’t even leave anything for the Order. He entrusted everything to Snape and Harry and didn’t leave any contingencies or plans for the Order after his demise. Which is why I’m pretty sure most of the Order members ended up being hunted and killed by death eaters. That aside this whole story in general has reminded me of how incompetent and shitty Dumbledore’s treatment of Harry was in canon but I will try to avoid going on a anti Dumbledore rant here.
After all Harry says more than enough for all of us Dumbledore Haters.

Overall pretty good chapter, I know that these story has been abandoned for many years but I would like to speculate about future events regardless.

I think that if Harry goes to Grimmauld place, I can see him ending up in the Black Library and trying to learn the Dark arts or something. With his current state of mind I don’t see there being aversion anymore towards learning dark magic especially if it can improve his current condition or more likely help him take revenge on his enemies. As well I do see him eventually going back to Hogwarts. I wonder if Dumbledore is going to be willing to get Harry involved in the Horcrux hunt with his current state of mind. I am also curious about whether Dumbledore has contracted the curse from the Ring Horcrux in this timeline. If I’m being completely honest though with the timeline as far along as it is right now, there is very little room for things to change from canon. Even if Harry kills Draco in rage if he sees him at Hogwarts, I highly doubt that would be meaningful at all in the larger scheme of things.

If this story is ever continued in the future I think it would be interesting if we get to see other peoples povs, for example how are Ron and Hermione coping with a new Harry they do not know at all. Also what is Bellatrix doing, after all if she is to end up with Harry, a lot of effort is going to have to be put into manufacturing that end and Bella will definitely need to get involved more intimately in the story.

I also have one suggestion or idea that could maybe be useful in this story. If we assume that the Blood wards protected Harry including his soul from the corrupting influence of Voldemorts soul shard inside Harry, than with them gone, Harry and Voldemorts soul might now be able to interact and in-fact merge inside of him. This could have all sorts of interesting implications for the story. If Voldemorts soul unconsciously begins to merge with Harry’s than Harry’s magical abilities may suddenly and massively improve. Of course, he is likely to be mentally and spiritually corrupted in the process. If Voldemorts soul shard becomes conscious, than with the influence of Lily’s magical protection, it could become a sort of mentor to Harry, an insidious, guiding voice inside his mind. Anyhow, though it is very likely that this fanfic will never be recontinued, a man can hope.

Great story, very horrifying but with lots of potential. I hope you return one day Voice of the Nephilim, thanks for an engrossing read, good bye and good night.
NamelessWanderer6 chapter 3 . 2/11
Great chapter, even after so many years, I can almost perfectly recall that whole scene with Bellatrix drinking her sisters blood and stealing her youth. Horrifying as it is, it is definitely my favourite scene in this story, the incredibly vivid and macabre imagery is very memorable.

The psychological aspects of Bellatrix’s rape are also explored very masterfully. A part of me feels like I’ve been transported directly into Harry’s shoes. On one hand I’ve never hated Bellatrix more for being a sadistic, psychotic cunt but then on the other hand this fic has given me a perverse crush on her, lol. I was never even remotely attracted to her until I read this story. I do not at all envy Harry’s position in all of this.

I wonder what role Bella’s rejuvenation will play in getting Harry and her together. On one hand it no doubt plays a supreme role in Harry’s physical attraction to her but with her mind marginally more sane, I wonder if she will be more willing to join up with him in the future. That being said even before Azkaban, she was already a complete sociopath. I just think that with her mind somewhat healed she might become less zealous in her loyalty to the dark lord, this is of course just speculation.
NamelessWanderer6 chapter 2 . 2/10
Good chapter, from Andromeda’s guilt it is clear that she has some responsibility for Harry’s current situation. I wonder if we’ll find out what she did. Also one moment that really caught my eye this chapter was the scene where Bellatrix drunk Harry’s blood and then analyzed it. Even though it has been many years since I read this, that scene has never left my memory and I think it is one of the best scenes in this entire story. In terms of how it fits with Bellatrix’s character, insanity and obsession with blood purity but also in terms of the dark magic displayed in this story, it is a scene only second to what we are about to witness next chapter. All I have to say about what happens next is poor Andromeda…
NamelessWanderer6 chapter 1 . 2/9
NGL, this is already one of the most fucked up stories I’ve ever read, I’m kinda nervous about continuing but I think I’ll be able to handle it. Feel bad for the Dursleys they may have been terrible to Harry but they did not deserve their fates, at least Vernon went down fighting, I can’t believe I’m saying this but RIP Vernon, you did good. As violent and horrifying this story is no doubt going to be, it will allow me to vent some anger at Dumbledore. Even though nothing like this happened it canon at all, the fact that it was a possiblity at all, is a result of severe negligence and stupidity on his part. While reading this story, I will cope by fantasying about total Pureblood supremacist and Slytherin Death as well as Dumbledore living the rest of his life in pain. Anyhow, good chapter, horrifying yes but good writing nonetheless.

Seriously how have you not updated the best bella/harry story ever?
bode chapter 1 . 10/7/2021
although I do have to say, if Harry is going to die anyways, he might as well tell them the prophecy and hope for a quick death.
