This is glorious! I am so happy that you updated - This is definitely my favourite chapter so far! I love it :D Also, like my sister (who I roped into reading this fic - she reviewed this chapter, so you'll know which I'm talking about - I don't remember her username :P), I'm wondering what happened to Pettigrew. You haven't written about him in a while.
I really, really love this! I'm as addicted to it as Tom is addicted to Harry. Please update soon!

This is truly one of my favorite stories. I have no idea if it's because Dark!Harry, or if it's because and it's Dark!Harry and Friends LOL. I LOVELOVELOVE that you made Sirius and Remus and the Twins and Neville dark. There's very few who do that in D!H stories. I love this story. I truly do and I can't wait for the next chapter. :D

I love how you're progressing this so far. The secrecy wards are ingenious and I love the interactions between Harry and Bill. His interactions with Ron are awesome and I love how Sirius and Remus are taking to the fact that they're following a Dark Lord and that lord being Harry. The fact that the order aren't weak adds another layer of depth to this story that I always thought was missing in some fics like this. It was either the Death Eaters are so insane that they're stupid or that the order is willfully blind and believe the power of love will save them!
The way that you wrote the perspective of Kingsley and Tonks had me genuinely sympathizing with them. At the same time, the interactions between Teodred and Tadeus gave them a more human depth than in the original. It's less about an epic battle between good and evil and more like two sides of a war fighting for what they believe in. Which is a wonderful change of pace from that whole everyone is either good or bad mentality that seems to be going on.
I can't wait to see how Dumbledore and the Order reacts to finding out that Lord Thanatos is Harry. When he does find out, won't Sirius and Remus be under suspicion then, seeing as they live with him and really should have noticed that there was something off. Their reactions to knowing that they've been living with a Dark Lord should be a wonderful, though. I really want to know how many of them that Harry will be able to convert before then.
Can't wait to read more! Update soon!

Would have loved to hear Sirius say; "So was your grandmother Cedrealla".

Yes, another chapter. I can't wait for the next one, I'm practically addicted to this fanfic. Please don't make me wait to long, also I'm really excited to see who the Ourobouros will recruit next and thir fifth year at Hogwarts

This was a really interesting chapter, and I'm so happy that you updated! Could you please tell me what happened to Peter Pettigrew, though? You haven't said anything about him in a while. Did he sit down on the spiky chair?

I forgot, is Snape on Voldemort's or Dumbledore's side?
And why was Harry's mark on a bloody parchment in chapter 20? Does he now have a bracelet or a physical mark on his arm, or how does he summon his Ouroboros?
Wait, if the twins are Sleepers, why are they marked? What about Neville? Is he marked? Please do forgive me for forgetting this much, but it has been a while since I read this story in its entirety.
Harry's Parseltongue abilities, does he have them because he is a Horcrux, or is there another reason? Is Harry even AWARE of the Horcruxes?
By the way, can you reiterate the meaning of Ouroboros? That is the ginomous snake that goes around in a ring and attempts to bite its own tail, but however hard I try, I cannot seem to remember its significance...
I had an epiphany: The Court is actually just a bunch of psychopaths. Seriously.
What I find absolutely commendable is that you actually explained Bellatrix's reasons for torturing the Longbottoms in such a logical way.
Also, not 'really deal', but 'real deal'. 'Astonished', not 'astonishment'.
Did Luna just kill Tonks? Oh well. Too bad.
I love how, by now, I am hoping the 'bad' guys win. I mean, how can you NOT root for Harry & Co.?
So, possible recruits: Bill, Dean, Kingsley(?), Charlie(?).
I don't know if this is canon or just my own interpretation of wizards' mentality, but I've always thought they prayed to Merlin rather than to other gods.
How could Snape have told Dumbledore about Thanatos when Harry put up wards to prevent specifically that from happening?
... When did Moody die? That just miiiiight be important information, you know.
Harry is pulling off the Dark Lord role like a pro.
'Friends' in Harry-speak (as in, 'friends who aren't, a) Ouroboros, or b) fellow Dark Lords') is translated into 'Ouroboros-in-training'.
Also, I am terribly sorry for this random review.
