    Er, Vash, whilst your rather... colourful... link works fine, you've spelt the title wrong. Knowm should be Known

    I can stomach H/Hr as long as it ain't too bad, and vampire Harry not taking it up the brown eye sounds cool too.

    I'll give it a whirl.

    I started reading this when it was first posted... for some reason I stopped. Can't remember why but normally I have a good reason too.

    I've only read the first two chapters so far and will read the rest later. Seems to me that Harry comes round to being a vampire way too early and the conversations, at least from what I have read so far, seem like there forced.

    Perhaps thats why you didn't read on Syaoran, or perhaps you've got further into the story than me and found something really annoying.

    I'll keep reading this next time I have chance and post what I think then.

    I give up!

    Why the hell is Snape acting all nice to Hermione? Theres no explanation at all behind it.
    Dialog, theres too much of it and everybody seems out of character especially Snape and Hermione. That whole part with Buckbeak I was cringing, she was like a upset toddler sulking.

    I dunno somebody else might like it, but I give up.

    This story is terrible - not even worthy of the bin.

    Harry is beaten to the point of death by Vernon, and in a remarkable coincidence, the most powerful vampire leader in Britain decides to visit Privet Drive that night. She and her partner turn him, and voila! Harry is now one of the most revered and powerful vampires around.

    This is one of those stories where there is no downside to being a vampire. It amplifies Harry's magic rather than destroys it, 'unlocks' his latent abilities, gives him natural occlumency, and basically turns him into a god. He can even go out in the sunlight with no difficulty. He only has to drink blood once per month, and even then he can just buy it.

    For no discernible reason, these uber vamps take Harry under their wing and train him in the 'old ways,' whatever the hell that means. I made it seven or so chapters in, and it was just a bunch of supertrunk!training cliches.

    The author doesn't even try to paint vampires as creatures of darkness. They bicker with each other as if they were in a bad sitcom, and 90% of the story is inane, unrealistic dialogue. Seriously, there's almost no narration. I'm beginning to think there's no such thing as a good vampire story.

    1/5

    Edit: another failtastic element I forgot to mention: Snape is 1/4 vampire. What is it with fics that do this? Shouldn't it be all or nothing? And it turns out that Hermione is 1/256th vampire or something like that because one of her ancestors was a vampire.

    Stake it, behead it, and burn it with fire.

    The first chapter is absolutely terrible! But it looked like the story was turning into mediocre Super!Harry before the following:
    I'm not taking any more of this shit.

    This thread amuses me, but only because it's fun to look back a few years and see what some people used to called grammar. :awesome

    We also now know that Vash was overly fond of ellipses...

    I have read this story once upon a time, as I see it in my massive list of bookmarks. I probably read every non-slash harry!vampire story between ff.net and hpff.com, but I don't remember the plot on this one, and have no desire to reread it. ?/5
