    I'd have to say Ruskbyte is one of my favorite authors, and during my hiatus from the computer I did read this story, and I was just speechless...it was wonderfully written.

    I really don't like his (Ruskbyte's) writing style and his Order of the Phoenix was a complete bore IMHO... BUT this was utterly amazing!! I've never seen Hellraiser because I'm a freak and I can't stand horrer movies or gore because I get really weird and have these vision thingeys of the bad things happening to myself... like the main reason I never watched Hellraiser even though I really wanted to was because of Pinhead and those nails...COULD YOU IMAGINE IF HE TRIPPED?! THE PAIN IT CAUSES!! And these visions (i call them visions but its really my overactive imagination) like to include approximations of the level of pain... I think I threw up after that one...ANYWHO this fic was awesome *high fives Ruskbyte* it was VERY well written and even though it was short it had great character development for Harry. I could actually picture him absorbed in the building of the Lament Configuration and telling Hermione to piss off... wow.

    *shrug* does it get better past the first half, which is ALL canon crap with AU bits tossed in there, or does it keep along the same thread?

    EDIT: it does get better later on, but takes a god awful time to get to it.

    Can't really get with this one, sorry.

    -takes forever to start, recaps all the canon stuff for the first while.

    -makes it AU with sticking Harry in a foster home, it shows it AU by having the exact same crap happen again and again, with just small changes chucked in till later.

    -later you're stuck with a long part of him building the box, which was well written.

    -then Voldie shows up, and you're treated to a way too long section of dialogue (and for ME to say this is bad, rofl) which accomplishes nothing more then Voldie attacking Pinhead, and all the death eaters get taken.

    -The bit with Dumbitch and Fudge was priceless though.


    Overall the various torture bits were cool for Wormtail and Bella, but all the various things killed it for me, sorry.

    I loved this story. Rustbyte wrote this one really well. The recaps on the canon can show where the AU bits pop in so that was a nice touch, I mean the Dursl-I mean wastes of flesh blood and bone, died in the begining.

    Yeah it was OK, but the fact that the loving forster parents didn't change anything is a little bit strange.

    I think this is the first fic to ever give me a nightmare. After reading this, I went to an auction and there was a well decorated wooden jewelry box up for bid. Had me paranoid and getting the hell out of there as soon as possible.
    Great story, though.

    Yeah this story was a gold mine. Absolutely hilarious. I actually liked the guy's writting except for Order of Phoenix which was a complete bore. Those who hunt and the newest one which is xover with Billy, Mandy Grim is also pretty funny.

    His From the Abyss is a good old Azkaban back to fuck everyone (literally) piece. He 'rapes' a whole bunch of nameless muggle girls, including a Hermione look alike for that very reason.. and Harry also makes bacon out of his blood relatives, which was cool. Pretty good/sick stuff. Take a look if you haven't.

    I found the cross over with Billy and Mandy amusing.
