And the Truth Shall Set You Free by silverskies - T

Title: And the Truth Shall Set You Free
Author: silverskies
Rating: T
Genre: General/Drama
Pairing: None(slight chance of slash very far down the line)
Status: WIP
Summary: Response to the Veritaserum Challenge. Starts PreHogwarts. Harry cannot lie, how does this affect him? And what happens when he meets an escapee from Azkaban?
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3205105/1/

Pretty decent story and Bellatrix has been playing a major role so far down the line. Sadly she's not her sadistic self but she's not a puddle of sugary patheticness either.

*edit* sorry about the author. Think I might have gotten mixed up between stories.

I've read chapter 1. All I can say so far is that the first chapter was good enough to warrant reading chapter 2, which I will do now.

Okay, I've read through chapter 5 (ff.net notation; author calls it chapter 4). Definitely worth getting the group's opinion.

The pairing of Bellatrix and little Harry is very well done (as in 'well written', not 'overcooked'). I would like to see what everyone else here thinks.

Of course, if it veers towards slash, as the warning says may happen later, I'll have to stop reading.

Also, the other big drawback is that the chapters are extremely short, shorter than some greeting cards I've seen.

I like this fic. Its one of the better fics though. Im not a fan of the pairing, if it even is a pairing, cause right now it seems more mother/son or teacher/student than that of a romantic interest.

Provided it doesnt repeat the same freaking SS/PS storyline that every other preHogwarts/1st year story gets to eventually this will be a top notch bit of fiction.

I like the development of Bella as a character, and enjoy the premise. 5/5 if it doesnt go through PS 3.5/5 if it does.

Don't double post, ZanyMuggle... the Edit button is there for a reason.

That said, decent, and I like it. It has the potential to be real good, as long as it doesn't follow PS/SS, as other people have said.

4.5/5

Nice start. Two original ideas mixed into one AU story. Bella's character is great.

Unfortunately, I'm not very optimistic regarding the Hogwarts years. Since Harry is already a foot in the Slytherin, I can already see 'pre-slash' atmosphere developing between him and 'Dray', kinda like in 'Saving Conor'. They don't have to outright fuck eachother to make me sick.

But for now, 4/5

I hadn't thought of that. Yes, it would probably be easier to read Harry bearing Hagrid's children than Harry/Draco drivel.

I like this one better than the one where Bella whores herself off to Snape just because he takes them in.

Still, "I wuv Dway" is kinda like the Titanic. Sinking; but not quickly enough.

2.2 / 5

The auther states that this will not be a slash story, and that should Harry be kissed by anyone it will most likely be a friendly peck on the cheek. I quite like it and I really think that more people should read it. I want to see it in the library.
