    I tried this one when it started, but I left it for some reason. I think the writing was too choppy or the plot was too clichéd. I really don’t remember, I just know that I don’t think I’ll take it up anytime soon.

    I’m not that bored

    Interesting, but since there are so many of these this one is really up to par with fics like Shattered Mirror.

    Its an ok story. But the X men xover does't seem to fit. If anything it seems a little forced and secondary. Mind you I like the story but I think it would have been better without the xover.

    Then of course there's the cliched animagus and Potter wealth....

    It's an okay read, but there were too many cliches that I came across to really enjoy the story. Shattered Mirrors set the standard for X-men crossovers for me. Other than that, it's a good story to save for rainy day reading.

    I like this story but I recognise Harrys mutant power to manipulate energy, either I have read this story before or there is another story were it is harrys mutant power...

    Yeah, I wasn't too impressed with the third movie either. Sorta butchered the series for me.

    I didn't like this fic at all to be honest. I felt there was too many cliches, and Harry's power is somewhat unbelievable, even for a mutizard. And, I don't really like Neville.

    This fic is average at best. There are quite a few clichés in it, and it jumps around quite a lot. Characterization isn't anything special either, but that's rarely the case in betrayal fics anyway. It's nonetheless a long, entertaining read if you're bored. Perfect Recycling Bin material IMO.
