There was a fleeting thought that it was a hoax but then got wrapped up in the happenings.? *am sad*. Emotional blackmail so isn't cool Harry! and Susan should never have capitulated and apologized. if it was a joke than no need for an apology, if it wasn't, he's being a little b*tch and she should move on. Yes, it wasn't right for Harry but she acted according to her nature...so to kowtow like that, she can't maintain respect that way.
Suppose this is common theme in relationships yah but it seems such a waste. She plays games and he sets her straight. "BORING"! And the sex, Susan, if you can't keep up now, how will it be with the stress of kids and keeping house and all the issues life brings? and Harry can't possibly consider her a true partner, not when he's already 'managing' the power in their relationship. Nope, it's better to be in love yet remain distant forever, than to be under someone's thumb,,,no matter how awesome they are. Just think they both have so much potential and deserve someone better than they can possibly be for each other.
I liked a lot about this fic. The fight scenes were descriptive and the friendly banter, ribbing they shared along with the hangovers was realistic and brought back a lot of good memories. The darker side too, front lines gallows humor and using innovative survival techniques for maximum damage adds to the appeal. Even the morbid realistic thoughts about death and suicide; in that it's a relief to see a fic be able to talk freely about concepts some folks deal with routinely but that horrify most people too much to discuss.
The romance tho-never could understand the attraction in a Harlequin romance prototype. No matter that they are incredibly popular.
Lol, Can you tell I got rather invested in the characters? ").

Yay Dozer. The most intelligent, incredible man in the world gave beautiful presents "butter" leading up to the proposal night to increase his chances of a positive answer.
Bit disappointed in Susan's lack of stamina but mostly the willingness to play games and lack of focus. If the other person is someone you need to escape it isn't the real deal. Harry was right to break it off and leave but his letters were more of a Slytherin tactic I'd think then that he really was so lovelorn. Gah, at least I hope not, I "pity the fool" if he was.

It certainly was cruel of Susan but that didn't make Harry's suicide her fault. That said, it was very well written getting them past that impasse, and I can believe it if I don't think about it too hard. Mostly because Susan is incredibly hot and Harry really likes her and wants to get...well, there's about most anything he'd forgive at the moment. ") Also, all his fighting and training has made him a different person, less angsty and more cavalier but perhaps he wan'ts someone soft and,,,other to come home to. Nothing to do with his team and their battles.
The most real part of the chapter was the funeral for his comrade in arms and Harry's thoughts about death and loss. Companions and people get hurt, sometimes it is quick and you learn to treasure the memories and live without them beside you. Sometimes, if you are truly lucky, they survive till they move past the bitterness and truly live again and you can re-enter friendship on a new level. Death can be surprisingly easy to accept if you have peace about someone.

Urgh. Need more action. The fun is alright but Harry if he really wants a partner should go with Cho or keep looking. If he wants a princess to protect and worship and tease he should go with Susan but please, please get on with it so we can get back to the good bits of the story.
...unless that's it and it's over. In which case it was fun and a good fic if a little corny at times.
| cztelnik chapter 14 . 1/30
Action bits are good and the humor entertaining but it's lost focus somehow. Almost like Susan was supposed to be Harry's ever after but the story just wouldn't write that way?
| cztelnik chapter 13 . 1/30
This reads better through the "band of brothers" scenes than the hysterical women snapshots but all in all it's good fun. Susan is a bit immature, spoiled and privileged but then again, so was Cho before she became Night Wisp. Susan just needs a few trips through the Twins everlasting swamps and then be captured and almost despoiled so she can properly appreciate Harry's rescue. Not sure the sarcasm really came through there but oh well. It will be interesting to see how Harry's quandary is resolved.
On a side note, although it isn't completely improbable Dumbledore would commit hari kari instead of facing his shame, it seems unlikely he'd be able to do it by jumping. Seems his magic abilities and spell knowledge would kick in even subconsciously?! Eh, curious to see if he turns up again later.

That was very dramatic. There's still some crippled giants in the street but seems the goblins wiped out all the attackers in Diagon Alley and there aren't any other's here. Not sure why Voldemort reverted to his human form as he was dying but perhaps that will be explained.

There's just no easy way but if Harry persevere's, and moves to another country, he can probably live a fairly normal life with at least no more attention than say Lucius Malfoy attracts in public.
| cztelnik chapter 9 . 1/30
Ahh, that makes more sense the cheesy ending since it was for snark benefit. Poor Harry being tortured and Cho too but nicely done to take out so many and the final horecrux. If Harry survives he'll likely become the owner of the Death Stick tho.

Damn, this is ending more Black Company style than ever anticipated. Excellent der'ing do and innovative transfiguration skills. Wow, absolutely and unexpected favorite fic even if that last bit is cheesy.

Perhaps Susan ought to consider that the simple country Wesley ended up becoming a deadly pirate, no. not just any pirate but the Dread Pirate Roberts! before he ended up collecting her. Like the parallels because a simple country Harry would be...passementarie for the current Susan. She'll need to experience a few adventures under the tutelage of Wraith before she's ready for a serious relationship.

Wow, certainly didn't expect the dark, vivid descriptive deaths. They were harsh and stark but not drawn out. It's a gift from soldiers that they do and become those who have blood on their hands protecting others so they can enjoy lives of peace and never truly have to empathize.

This is very introspective. I didn't expect it to be so intense, or to enjoy a romance so much. There's a lot of emotional angst without the tedious drama (except from Susan). Rather like his mother did with his father, Harry will likely forgive and forget the spoiled, ignorant remarks once he's set his affections on her.
