    I thought this fic was great. It's an interesting look at the canon universe. Dumbledore is the epitome of a manipulative bastard.

    HOLY COW!!! That was..... WOW.... I can't find the word for this fic. It's... wow!

    The ending was a little disappointing thought... maybe because I wanted more retribution. But still…

    Wow. (I feel like Neo)

    brilliant.

    curious about remus/albus interaction though. i wish that had been fleshed out with another scene (a precursor perhaps?).

    but brilliant.

    Yeah, I thought it was alright. Not really quite wow material. Like, it was beautifully written, and the plot is lovely, but ... wow? Nuh ... :?

    it's too bad the author's other works are filled with slash.

    there was a really good evil!harry piece...but completely ruined by the slash at the end with snape.

    Wow indeed, though not the best fic ever. It was classic, especially the ending.

    Yea, it was written pretty well.

    It was interesting for it to be done as a little one-shot since I've seen that idea before, but strung out into 30,000 words or more. The speed of it was what kept me reading. Had it been any longer I would've gotten bored and irritated with the writing, (I didn't particularly care for the wording of some descriptions, I'm a simple kind of reader), but this was good.

    Got ten minutes to kill? Read it. Course, now I want to know what happens next...

    Meh. I think all the 'wow's here got me expecting something more.

    It was interesting. I liked Harry's little ending proclamation of "I am..." and the summation. But the rest of it just felt choppy and rushed in many parts. I suppose the easy comparison would be to Dzeytoun and all his Albus-POV and Remus-POV writing but without the coldness to the manipulation this one seemed to have. If it were longer it probably would have endeared Albus more.

    Overall, it was good.

    But not "wow" for me.

    It was pretty good but also not wow for me either. Better than most stuff you may find out there though.

    Pretty good writing. Like nonjon said, reminencent of Dzeytoun. The story turns your mind in some weird directions. I recommend giving it a whirl.

    Wow!!

    Easily one of the best stories I have read. I like spy-Wormtail who isent some idiotic fool. A fool would not be able to live in animal form for over a decade in a wizarding home or bring back someone to life even with help.

    It was pretty good. I wouldn't say "Wow", but it's a good story.
