| HPandPJO4ever chapter 56 . 10/23
Oh my god! I read chapters 46-50 on AO3, found out there were more over here, and immediately came to find them. These last few chapters made me the most excited I have ever been in my life. Seriously, well done. Just, Tom and Harry, the Wizengamot, and then the school's reaction, and just... AAARRGGGHHHH! I can't wait for the next chapter!

Wow, it's been such a long time since I read this story, but your sudden pile of updates on AO3 made me decide to reread the whole thing again. Then, getting to the end of your updates on AO3, and having seen a comment from you about migrating content from to there, I wondered whether there might be any more chapters here. I was ever so pleased to realise that, not only were there more chapters here, but two of the things I've been most looking forward to happened during them!
Seriously, I love this story. I love how Harry is so contradictory - both loving and vicious, destructive and creative, cunning and excitable, able to lead a faction at the same time as acting like a child... Wonderful!
I loved the development of Tom and Harry's relationship, and how they were utterly clueless for so long - it was completely in character and made the moment when they realised their feelings and came together ever more poignant. I'm so happy that they're finally together properly, and I bet all of their friends are relieved that the worst is over in that regard! Plus, the sex has always been hot, and the way Harry has Tom wrapped around his little finger is so cute!
I absolutely adored all the show-boating. Drama and dramatic reveals are something I have a weak spot for, and so first the ball at Malfoy Manor in the summer, then a whole load of smaller reveals to Tom's DEs, then the long-awaited Yule-tide balls, and then finally the Wizengamot we were all on tenterhooks for plus its fallout...marvelous! (Hah, Marvolo, marvelous...not that dissimilar ;) ) Add in Ginny's very public humiliation... I haven't been able to put this story down for the last few days: I was enjoying it too much to stop!
Just a little bit of constructive criticism. Although the writing has definitely improved from the start to the finish - very obvious when reading the whole thing in one go - there are still a number of words which are used incorrectly. One which has come up a few times has been the difference between 'heel' and 'heal' - the first is the body part e.g. 'he turned on his heel'; the second is the action of recovering from an injury e.g. 'Harry healed quickly because of his phoenix animagus form'. One which I saw in this chapter was 'birth' vs 'berth': the first is the event of a baby/idea coming into the world e.g. 'the birth of the Death Eaters was in Tom's younger years'; the second is actually to do with ships, but should have been used in this chapter as 'they gave her a wide berth' meaning that they gave her space. I'm not sure which method you're using to check grammar and spelling, but I suggest that if you are unsure about a word, that you use a thesaurus to check its meaning - when I write, I do that all the time! Alternatively, if you haven't already thought about it, maybe get someone with a wide vocabulary to proof-read your chapter. I'd be happy to do so if you don't have anyone else available.
That said, despite the misuse of some words sometimes being jarring, I have thoroughly enjoyed this story and look forward to your next update! Since the version seems to be updated more often, I might subscribe to this one instead of the AO3...
Thank you for writing!

| Guest chapter 56 . 10/20
Oh my god, I'm so happy you updated! I honestly am addicted to this, I absolutely love dark golden trio, and Luna is always awesome and I think you've got Dumbledore perfectly manipulative. Even in the real books, I'd always thought he was meant to be all-knowing and all-powerful but he let's/makes Harry do everything! Anyway, love this!

| AlexHosler chapter 56 . 10/15
Words cannot explain how much I love this book - I have read it three times now and every time it seems to get better! It updated three chapters since the last time I read this and I was actually feeling nervous with the team as they prepared for the Wizengamot! You write so well, thank you so much for sharing this to the world! 3
