Review for Harry Potter and Merlin's Reaper

Harry Potter and Merlin's Reaper

(#) Cateagle 2007-11-01

Oh, my!! I -almost- feel sorry for the resistance, they had a tremendous ally and let their blindness and predjudice drive him away. I wonder how long it'll take Amelia and Minerva to mend fences there. OTOH, I don't feel at all sorry for the purebloods who flocked to Tom's banner nor for Tom himself; it's got to be hell to find out that you're nowhere near as "all powerful" as you thought.

I liked the rescue scenes, Harry's always been good at that kind of thing and the episode at the Weseleys clearly shows that he's not going to turn dark, despite his power and anger, he's got too much compassion to turn that way.

I like the recruiting of the Weaseley twins, that is -not- going to improve things for Tom's forces. I do wonder when Harry's going to meet up with the loyal remnants of Her Majesty's forces, -that- could be quite interesting; the results could be even more fascinating, esp. if he receives a royal equivalent of a letter of marquee and reprisal.

The Purebloods are in trouble...

I tend to have him lose it and end it too quickly. I wanted to kill lucius slowly, but even though I wrote it 4 times, each time it ended with Harry atomizing them... Ah well.

Everythings better with Boom!.
