| DaSalvatore chapter 40 . 7/13
This a nice story with only a few issues. Harry is somewhat wishy-washy in his personality and attitude when it comes to the world. You have him someone committed to being matured teenager who realises what Dumbledore is up to and won't take crap from his friends, and other times he'll be a mostly silent and disbelieving child when it comes to Riddle.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't expect him to fully jump on board with Riddle, but you don't go too into Harry's thoughts so it comes across as him unable to change his mind. He knew the letters were from someone who he had a reason to dramatically distrust yet even after a magical vow couldn't believe anything Riddle said in their first meeting and even when Sirius and Remus said they'd follow Harry to changing sides, he is still unsure when he wakes up and finds out Tom helped save his life from the Acromantula venom.
The other weakness to the story is that there is a lot of "telling" rather than "showing" with large chunks of time skipped so that it can be a little tricky to keep up. Still, a decent story even if I won't be continuing with it.

Wow, I absolutely love this story. I managed to catch up to the latest chapter from the very beginning in just two days! Harry’s new-found take on things and grey standpoint is very refreshing. You’ve managed to portray him as a very relatable character by choosing to develop his abilities and knowledge pool slowly. (Latest chapter would be my best point of reference) Amidst all the over-powered and untouchable Harry’s out in the fandom, it’s really nice to see a Harry that wants improve himself at a more normal pace. Besides a few grammatical mistakes, there isn’t much to comment on improvement wise. It’s not like I can talk about any plot holes, considering the story isn’t even finished yet! Hooray! I can’t wait for the rest :)
Anyway, onto the most recent chapter. I found myself having to reevaluate how attached I became to Harry. His breakdown had me shedding a few tears. My heart really went out to him. So many emotions were involved in this last chapter, whether they were from Harry, Tom, Greyback, or Shiva. It really got me thinking about a lot of things.
The first of those thoughts would have to be on Tom and his reaction to Harry’s distress. Even with all the changes, it’s hard to believe a Dark Lord would be so ready and willing to offer comfort or apologies. You have been hinting for a while now that something is definitely going on between Tom and Harry, that only Tom (and Nagini?) is aware of. He’s been giving quite a bit of individualy undivided attention to Harry as of late. The efforts he’s made to continue their training together during the school year, for one. It makes a girl wonder about what else came back to Tom along with his sanity. I would love to get some insight into what Tom’s been thinking lately. Giving us readers that bit with old Dumbles and Mr. Alpha Wolf was great. Now I’m craving more~ (mostly from Tom)
Secondly, my mind is being drawn back to a previous AN. Something about partial-creature Harry or new characters. This last development REALLY got me curious as to what might happen next and if it involved any of those two things.
Lastly, I don’t really know how to feel about all the upcoming reactions to Harry’s plight. With the way they’ve been acting lately, i don’t have the best confidence in Ron or Hermione. I feel like they wouldn’t be as there for Harry as they should be. I’m also quite scared for Tom and Dumbledore in regards to Sirius’ and Remus’ reactions. I really wanted to punch Dumbledore in the face, and give Tom a big snake hug. Alas, I hope Greyback doesn’t get hurt much from Tom’s very likely stress venting. But, yeah... Mostly, I’m just wishing you luck on writing it all out. For me, emotional bits were always the hardest things to put out into words. I mostly just cry it all out :p
Thank you so much for not dropping this story! I know that I’m still new as a fan, but I won’t be beat in terms of excitement and avidness for this story! I can’t wait for whatever you have in store for us readers :)

Poor little innocent naive Harry:) Someone needs to do a lot of explaining to this silly boy ha ha. Sirius go teach your godson the birds and bees!

I have very mixed feelings about Harry getting cursed by the ring. I hope he won't have to get a magical prosthetic arm or something.. Apart from that, your story is really well written and interesting ! I also can't wait to read more about the relationship between Tom and Harry :)

Poor Harry! I'm pretty confident you won't kill him off, though.
I'm trying to remember Snape's situation in this fic - sorry for my patchy memory. Could he "rescue" Harry "at great personal risk" and take him to St. Mungo's? Could help his cover.

Huh! I thought you'd be killing off Dumbledore here. Too easy? Stories are a bit tricky without an antagonist to play off...
