FINALLY I GET AROUND TO READING PSYCHO!HARRY :D

Vell hello, Janechel. This vas pretty awesome. I honestly don't know why I'm writing in a Viktor Krum type accent, but hey.

I mean, I guess that's slightly weird of me to say after I just read about a psychologically messed up Harry, but it was extremely well written! It can't not be awesome! I did not expect any less from you, of course. ♥ I absolutely love some of the sentences you write; for example: "He collapsed onto the floor and the wand slipped from his fingers, rolling away and meeting with shadow." OOH, MEETING WITH SHADOW. I LIKE! Your manipulation of the English language is quite creative! /and there goes my poor attempt at sounding sophisticated and grown up. It just won't happen. :P

I think it's a very logical idea that Harry would go crazy after defeating Voldemort. Having those memories of the awful experiences in OoTP at the Ministry, the final battle, etc., are bound to scar a person (hardy har har!). Honestly, I was a bit confused at the end. You say Harry was Voldemort and Voldemort was Harry, and then you say it was only ever Harry. Are you saying that it was just that Harry was crazy? Or are you saying that piece of Voldemort that was bound to Harry never died, hence he kept messing up with Harry's mind? OR ARE YOU SAYING BOTH? oh, the intrigue of it all.

I really enjoyed reading this, Janechel! I liked how your tone throughout was more like one of an observer and not as emotionally connected to Harry as it might be. It gives a sense of detachment from the character that lets the reader imagine more things & construe more possibilities as they read, which is really fun and amusing to do xD

So to wrap this up.
this was such a horrible story.

Author's Response: Viktor Krum's pretty awesome. I'm surprised people don't type in his accent more often. VELL HELLO, JORDAN.

That entire last chunk of the story was written stream-of-consciousness and I have not touched it since. I am glad you were confused. :D (Is that strange? OH WELL.) Basically, it goes as so --

Harry is only seeing himself in the mirror, Voldemort is obviously not there. He's been defeated. But his mind twists his own image and he sees Voldemort as himself, because he's going mad, you know. His mind's somehow got it that Voldemort is still inside him. It's like he's jumped a few years back in his mind. Then, for a split second, when he casts at the mirror and it cracks -- right before it shatters -- his mind is cleared for the very briefest of moments. And he sees himself, as he would have seen all along has he not been insane. Then the madness consumes him again as the mirror shatters, and the pieces kill him.

Wow. That sounds a bit dark.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SUCH A LOVELY REVIEW, JORDAN. ♥ I am very glad you enjoyed psycho!Harry!
