Betrayed, Used, and Royally Pissed by LeTimbo - T

Title: Betrayed, Used, and Royally Pissed
Autor: LeTimbo
Rating: T
Genre: Angst/Spiritual
Status: WIP
Summary: After the final battle, Harry reflects on the war and his life. Longer version hopefully coming...The longer the story gets the more philosophical the story will get, bringing in...Buddhism. Fixed to make it somewhat postHBP.

I thought this was a respectable little start to an Azkaban fic. It got abandoned for over a year but got a new chapter a few weeks ago. Author asked whether it was worth continuing and considering how little response there was it seems potentially unlikely.

Not sure there's enough for a solid judgment, it's only 5 chapters and 10K words. But I really appreciate the fact that he's got the right attitude for an Azkaban!Harry, and not the typical crying whiny weak bish. Nor is he brimming with rage and anger and breaking into a rant whenever he can.

It's not spectacular, but I enjoy it and figured I'd plug and see if anyone else think it's worth the author's efforts to continue.

I think it helps that the title and the fic I refer to as BURP.

This is not bad for an Azkaban fic. Harry's character is surprisingly balanced and all the right people are being bashed.

On the downside, it might have taken too long to reach this point (the escape). Not to mention that he stopped just when it started getting interesting.

The summary sounds good... the story isn't, IMO.

I think this fic has got potential. Although the pace is a tad slow, I think it suits the story. The author neatly side-steps several cliches and I'm curious to see how the rest of the story turns out.

I think that this story has some pretty good potential and shouldn't be abandoned. Besides, I like the idea of Ron/Ginny getting their ass's kicked by Harry later on in the story, which from what I can tell will happen.

The summary kept me from reading this one for a long time.
I usually dont touch anything that remotely sounds like any god-like creature takes a major role. But after finally reading it, I can say its a good story, or more like start-off . I also like the character setup. What I dont see is where this spiritual and buddism stuff comes in. I have never seen something interesting done in this gengre. So maybe it will be something new here. I will probably stop reading it if the main theme will be some moral dilemma (like the buddism vs. angry) or some god shows up.

I wish the author would update more often.

This could be a great story if it continues in this style and quality... Hope it is updated soon.

I'm not sure I remember this fic, I do remember that I hate the title for it's sheer incomprehensible stupidity (that is 'Royally' NOT a title). Maybe i'll give it a read and give a longer response...

Alright, starting off, this fic is abandoned and is five chapters.

So I begin reading the first chapter and I see this:

Quote:
I just loved it when that traitorous former friend of mine Ronald “It’s for your own good, really” Weasly dropped by to try and convince me of the altruistic reasons behind their decision to lock me up. If anything, traitors should be locked up, rather than those who risked their ass to save theirs. Ungrateful swine.
Ugh, the author continues to spell Weasley wrong again.

Quote:
Many sacrifices which led to many noble deaths. But for every noble sacrifice there were just as many people sacrificed to save their own hides. I’ll never forget Ginny Weasley, who I thought I knew so well, throwing Luna Lovegood in front of her to separate her from Tom. Sure, it gave Ginny enough time to get her ass out of the line of fire, but as what cost?
Luna used as a mere projectile, boo.

That being said, it is well-written, and the author manages to dodge cliches that plague many HarryAzkaban! fics. The author also writes a very realistic final battle, which is pleasant to see. I'm also glad to see a loyal Neville.

The interaction between Harry and Ron was a great read as well. Harry's escape was well thought out, and I like the Resistance thus far.

At this point, the story ends which is a huge disappointment considering how much I was enjoying the story. Considering before the abandonment, I would of given it a 4/5 if not a 5 because of grammar and other things. However, due to it's abandonment, I will rate it a 3/5. It's not Library worthy at it's current stage, but it is definitely recycle bin worthy.
