(#) slashslut 2008-07-20another great chapter! glad to see sirius has made an appearance and that for once his character is showing some signs of sense and questioning the circumstances of his imprisionment and dumbles role in not getting him out. that always irked me in the stories that after everything dumbles did NOT do for him, he just willing falls back under his leadership and doesn't immediately do anything to better harry's situation. grrrrr! anywho, i hope that harry will accept his as an ally if nothing else. the showdown with lupin promises to be explosive! can't wait! read ya later:)
Author's responseThat always irked me too. Dumbledore got Snape off. He couldn't get Sirius a trial?!
(#) red_jacobson 2008-07-20Another excellent chapter! I really like the way you have developed Harry, and I can certainly understand his coldness to Sirius. I really hope that Remus has a good reason for what he had done, otherwise I don't think he will be enjoying meeting this Harry.
(#) animemonster 2008-07-20True, this chapter title does make sense. Halloween...that all important time in the HP books when huge important events occur, like trolls attacking, secret chambers opening, parents murdered, escaped convicts attacking, etc. I always found it a bit strange that such important events always seemed to occur on the same date, and that Harry never seems to have a "Happy Halloween". Can't wait to see what you do with it.
(#) michae1ange1o 2008-07-20A very intelligent and well thought out story that manages to avoid all the clichés that other Dark Harry stories seem to regurgitate every so often. Each chapter is a genuine pleasure to read.
(#) DrT 2008-07-20I have to confess I have no idea where you'll be going. Hopefully Hermione won't be hiding in that bathroom come Halloween, because I think it unlikely Harry would put himself in a position to save her
(#) Vanir 2008-07-20Me? I'm just buckling my seat belt and enjoy the ride. I think Harry might just understand Sirius a little better with time. Sirius is a hothead, and he can be trusted to be a hothead, but after Azkaban, he's also very pliable. This Harry wouldn't waste such an opportunity, would he?
(#) biged78 2008-07-20I love this story, keep up the good work.
(#) firelord 2008-07-20this is a fantastic story so far please update again a.s.a.l.a.
(#) Maxtaf 2008-07-20Ah, I do so love sociopathic Harry stories. And this one is the best I've read of that ilk. My personal favorite is Harry calling a truce with Voldemort. I suspect that they will get even closer if Volde decides to take Harry up on the offer the trade childhood stories. As it has been pointed out before, they have a lot in common, and having the opportunity to talk peacefully with a kindred soul (male bonding in all it's twisted glory) might help darked Harry, and possibly lighten Tom. I can see this Tom starting to see Harry as the little brother he never had...
If Sirius had just left baby Harry lying there in the rubble, to be found when Hagrid got there, I would agree with being angry at Sirius. But he didn't. He waited until Hagrid, someone he trusted with his life, to show up, and then left Harry safe in his care. He had knowledge at that point of who the traitor really was, and needed to act on it before the rat got away. His only real error was not simply telling Hagrid "I was a decoy. Peter was the real secret keeper." But as Vanir said, Sirius was a hothead, and a furious, betrayed hothead at that.
Please keep up the fantastic work you are doing on this story. I am really enjoying it. Thanks for writing for us.
