    The Lie I've Lived by jbern. It reads like a published novel to me. Read it yearly. Read it a month ago still stands as the best I've read.

    Maybe Dumbledore gave him the job because he felt sorry for him being a squib.

    I think Liverpool still have a chance. Get Matip, Mane back and Coutinho up to speed and they will give Chelsea a good go.

    Its been a month since I read it. Anyway TLIL reads like a published novel. The first person is excellent giving details without going overboard. HJ is the coolest character you can't help but love him. Didn't like Fleur too much in this but jbern gave her a new character altogether. Sorting hat what can I say but genius. Thank you jbern for this amazing fanfic.

    Whats your relationship with Harry?

    I feel attached to him. While reading a story I'm rooting for him. Hoping he succeeds in his endeavor even if he is doing a wrong thing. Hoping for the best for him in everything. I would get pissed of if the author killed him off or have him suffer with no retribution. Its like he has become a loved one for me.

    Is the The Lie I've lived the best HP fanfic ever written?

    Pacing is nearly perfect. Witty dialogue. Great Original ideas. The best action I've ever read in fan-fiction(that I can recall). Creative spell usage and theory. Author is actually published I think. Good humour. Low filler.

    Not comparing with canon here but with other fanfics. No Library is for reviews not comparing fanfics.
    Well its rated 5 stars on DLP by 300 users so the TLIL is a credible contender.

    Some aspects of it are trite, especially in the opening with the Dumbledore and Weasley bashing being the event that sets off the plot, and some parts of it haven't aged very well, but overall its a great independent Harry fic with good action sequences, a completely original plot and a very Indiana Jones-esque atmosphere mixed with a coming of age story but The Lie I've Lived is amazing, absolutely stellar. There's a few plot decisions I might be able to criticize if I did a fresh re-read but jbern's writing is excellent enough to make it unnoticeable.

    When did you lose your virginity?

    14 or 15 I think when I lost it with my boyfriend.
