I was quite surprised that I really liked this. I like Rep's other stuff, of course, but I quite religiously stay away from fics that are predominantly about the romance between two characters - I tend to like the romance to stay in the background of a story. I ended up finding this story hooking, though. Just to be clear, I've only read the chapters that are up on fanfiction.net. The first thing that really stands out is the fact that the characters are very well written. I could count on one hand the truly well done Daphne fics and still have fingers to spare. Their relationship doesn't feel forced or rushed. Now Harry does seem a bit out of character, as people have noted, but you can still see the 'core' HP of the series in him. I'm pretty sure as more is revealed we will come to understand why he's actually like this. Secondly, the subtly world-building is great. Pretty much everyone's said that, so I'm not really going to expand on this point, except to add that I love the 'magical' world that he's created. The small mentions of how HP has grown magically is also pretty awesome. It's nice to see an HP who's come into his powers, and believably so - he seems to have a good grasp of the more esoteric parts of magic, that he showed at the end of the series. Now, I understand the vagueness in HP's motives that Rep's trying to create. It's probably going to be a combination of this ulterior motive of his as well as the excuse he gave – his professed lack of understanding of her. However, at times, Rep seems to try and stick to this vagueness a bit too much. For example, during some of HP's introspective moments, he doesn't seem to even acknowledge a reason for his actions. He tends to consider the conflicting viewpoint from some other character, and wonders if they are right about him and his actions, and if he is doing wrong. Which is not wrong by itself, and I can see the benefit of keeping the reader guessing, but surely when you are given 'direct access' to the character's thoughts it shouldn't be quite so ambiguous. I could see it being this ambiguous if a character wasn't aware of his own motives, but in this situation I don't think that's the case. If he were unsure of his own motives, this HP would, in my opinion, believe he is doing it entirely for this ulterior motive of his and not partly because of a fascination for Daphne. This one small criticism seems to have taken up a huge part of my review, so let me reiterate - I am really enjoying this fic, and find it particularly well-written. This criticism of mine is a very small complaint, and I'm sure it will be clarified sooner than later. I would rate it 4.5, rounding down for now.
