I don't understand why some authors think that ptsd or the like, trauma from war and combat weariness is the same thing as turning into a child mentally. Victims of ptsd react most often violently towards anything that reminds them of the trauma, they are paranoid, they are prepared, always prepared even if they haven't got to be. THEY. DO. NOT. TURN. INTO. MENTAL. TODDLERS! They are weary of life and it shows, they are not little reactors of fluff

What is Harry an elf or what I’m leaning more towards elf but it’s all over place
| Slowest Turtle chapter 5 . 2/19
This plot would've been easier to get through if you'd straight up wiped Harry's memories completely. A grown man acting like a kicked puppy does not a protagonist make. This version of Harry is one I'd gladly say probably should've just been left to die and move on with his "friends". Way too angsty. I'm out.
| Slowest Turtle chapter 4 . 2/19
Seriously, did Harry not have friends and comrades in his previous life? Does he look at every new potential interaction from the perspective of an abused slave? Contrived nonsense for the sake of it.
| Slowest Turtle chapter 3 . 2/19
Also, is Harry literally a useless abused 5-year old who cant abide human contact, again? Is he not 18 and fresh off the back of killing voldie? It's all so overdone and exaggerated.
| Slowest Turtle chapter 2 . 2/19
I get that Harry is all depresso and is in the middle of a huge bout of survivor's guilt, but the whole bit about the entire second war being his fault is a little too angsty and melodramatic. He's not wrong exactly. There would be no second war because the first would've ended in Voldemort's victory. Smh.

With Elven hearing wouldn’t Legolas hear their conversation in such a small space?

I noticed you love to use these 2 words a lot - agony and scream XD
| HelpImDrowning chapter 30 . 8/10/2022
This story is so well written, and verges enough from the original sources to be its own adventure. I love the relationship between Harry and the fellowship (especially the father-son relationship with Aragorn).
I hope that you will continue this story in the future 3

The harry being a scared kid does feel a bit forced, but at least you have given reason for it, with the valinar messing with his aging and having mentioned that he felt himself thinking more and more like a kid the longer he was in middle earth
| rowenasheir chapter 30 . 7/31/2022
Please finish the story

Harry is such a drama queen that I'm dropping this. He blames himself for everything that happens, and that is just selfish.
