I can't remember many a time I had almost been brought to tears in the first chapter. But damn, you about did. And in a good way, just so we're clear.

The summary had gripped me from the first and when I saw it WAS your first fic, I had to read. From the beginning you gripped us in, drawing us into the desire to know what the hell was going on. Who Hermoine was talking to, the despair that seemed to prevade the air after the loss of this being she was sitting over. Who turned out to be Harry.

I do like how you left what Harry was saying, leaving us with a mystery and the burning desire to read the next chapter as soon as you get it uploaded. Why? Because we want to know, dammit. Haha.

It probably doesn't hurt that you have some of my favorite pairings going in this. For some reason, I've always had a preference of our good guys ending up the the "bad" guys. Like, Hermoine/Snape, Luna/Blaise and so forth. Those are the ones showed in the summary, of course, but the others one can get imaginative with.

And on to that spell... I really want to know who the hell that one boy was!? I know he's dead, yeah, but it had to have been someone with a notice me not because Harry isn't slow, not that I think of anyways, for someone to get the drop on him like that.

Anyways, I get that we're going back in time. In truth, I always wondered how no one thought of it. If someone went back in time, willing to sacrifice their existance... They could have likely prevented Tom Riddle's birth, or even his rise of power. But, as the snowball effect goes, something bigger and badder would have happened, unless they find a particular point that allows nothing bad to happen and only the good.

So I do wonder if the finicky properties of time will take some toll on those who are to execute this plan or if there is to be a few concessions. Such as, things can be changed, they're just never going to be allowed to go back and will have to be 'stuck' as it were.

This is how you know you did wonderfully well as a writer. You get the people asking questions, wanting to know more, see more. And honestly, long chapters are nice, but quality over quantity is the best way to go. If you need a longer chapter to get a scene across, thats all well and good. But if you're forcing it? Ends up making the final product suffer a whole bunch.

So, to put it simply, awesome work. Can't wait to see what is next.
