A very, very good story. Well written plot - great background. I groaned when it was over so fast. Well done! :-)

I never knew that, because I thought you were a banana. How stupid am I?

Thank you for this wonderful work, if at times it seems extremely poorly paced. I was impressed at this interesting twist on the "rescuing" Harry from The dursleys. Which I always thought that someone should have made a bigger deal out of during the book cannon. A lot of what you wrote Harry's character as doing is very logical for a physically and menally abused person to do, for example Harry runs to the library to hide from his cousin to not get beaten. As for the dual sperum on Harry turning light where as Tom turned dark is probably more biased on what the two grew up knowing about their respective parents. The Dursleys constantly told Harry that Lilly and James had died in a car crash, where as Tom was told his parents abandoned him their at the orphanage. Psychology is a very interesting science especially child psych because it opens up the idea that even the smallest thing can be a major impact on a brain that young.

Ah fuck ! Just what is it with weird fan fiction stories and making the plot complicated with introducing un-needed and completely unrealistic . TELL ME DID LILY FUCKn POTTER ALSO MAKE HORCRUXES ? HOW the fuck is she alive ?

On that last quote by Sun Tzu that's not quite accurate. America profited immensely from the 'cold war' with Russia and, while not quite as obviously, a great deal from world wars 1 and 2 as well. WW1 shifted the US from a minor country to a notable power via arms dealing and WW2 left us as one of the primary world powers then our arms/tech race with Russia offered us enough innovation to be the world power for the next 50 years. THat time has not yet passed but the rate at which other countries have been advancing politically, militarily and technologically that's going to change in the next 5-10 years, thus the 50.

I am in love with george granger and all the science. I would like to thank you for being one of the few author to actual realistically portray the results of extreme abuse. there are so many people who minimize these things, especially in the fan fiction community. I find Harry's utilitarian outlook inspiring and this story has convinced me to finally get around to reading The Art of War. Thank you for providing a wonderfully thought out and executed story and I fully intend to read the short stories you have published.

You had me hooked since the prologue. Read it all in a single day - should have studied instead, but coudn't let this off.
I have long searched for fanfic, that would make logical decision to include firearms in the war. Thank you! This was a great execution of the idea!

Ugh. I am pretty sure that the second part of my review had been eaten.

(oh sugar, wrong button) anyway: I am not entirely sure did you pay as much attention on to devaloping her character. Which is understandable of course, she is not the main focus here. However O find this in lots of aspects of this story that even thpugh you had give great attention to some of the events, some are very brief like for example Sirius case. I have to add as well that I do understand the usage of Muggle weapons by Harry but still I couldnt stop myself from being slightly amused. Being a visual person, I like to imagine and see things I read and the image of Lord Voldemort being blasted by Uzi had been very entertaining and a little over the top but thats just me being closed minded and all.
Anyway, my second point should be a huge congratulation on creating such complex yet simple in its message story. Love which you had showed and developed ( even though not satisafctionary enough for romantics like me that could simply rival Wordsworth with need for deep emorions) have stopped me dead me in my tracks. Simple yet complicated, beautiful yet tragic. A trough mastership that indeed had to be acquired trough years of learninh. Your authors note, however, had me worried slightly. I dont deny that probably you have experienced more in your life than me. But even though you may not have found the love you are speaking of, or you are not seeing it as much as you would want to it is there. And this is said by a girl who had endured what you describe in Harrys childhood. Maybe with not such ferocity but still with full force. Yet here I am reading, loved uncoditionally by so many people and I want to give some of this love to you so you will see as much of it as I do.
Maybe youll laugh at my poor attempt of reviewing this great story. You also probably will find my english to be dreadful. I must excuse myself as it is not my first language. However I am simply thankful that I stumbled upon this wonderful adventure. And I just thought it would be nice to share with you my happiness :)

I have a very good reason to think that you probably won't ever get around to actually read my review. Still I found myself not caring, simply because I am so inspired and so full of this "hope" you have put into the the story, that foolishly Ill do my best to describe the feelings I am left with. First of all: thank you. For not dragging ou the plot, for keeping chapters short enough to be readable but long enough to be interesting. I find myself sometimes to simply abandon a story because the author puts up ridiculous amount of chapters and expect people to actually stick with sometimes pointless babbling. Another great advantage of the story is your own knowledge that shines trough the characters. As a person of mere 18 years of age I really appreciate your intelligence and attention to details, especially the aspect of personality of the characters. I absolutely undersand, no, I simply get Harry Potter you have created. You showed the reasons he became what he is, you showed his strenghths and weakness and even the purposes that drive him. I must agree entirely, even with lack of indepth knowledge of psychology, that the persona you have created is far more plausible than that of Mrs Rowling. As for Hermiona, altough I am in Love with her, I am not antirely sure

Well, 10 chapters later I rescind my dislike of Harry (as you probably knew I would!).
Beautiful story. Love the relationship development- the friendship is so realisticly written.
My only comment that's even close to negative is that, although you revised each chapter, there were sometimes tiny mistakes that could distract a bit. Examples woul be leavin letters off words occasionally ('ay' instead of 'say'), pronoun confusion (Hermione isn't a he) although that could merely be missing letters, and once or twice you misspelled Madame Pomfrey's name (Pomphrey).
But this is all just nitpicking because I loved your story so much I attempted to blitz through it while finishing up homework that was in desperate need of my attention.
You have tremendous skill as a writer and I look forward to moving on to the sequel.
