I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY. I think this might be my favorite one-shot of yours too. It's haunting and desperate, every word written with precision.

I kind of love insane Harry. It's terrifying, what he's going through, seeing things that aren't there, wishing for the noises to stop. It makes sense, though. After everything he's gone through to finally crack. It almost seems like he has some obsessive compulsive tendencies, with the counting steps, etc.

I think the last section is my favorite. That they're together, though they really aren't, because Harry is crazy and thinking that he sees Voldemort, when it's really just him.

I just don't even know what to say except how brilliant and wonderfully constructed this was. Very disturbing, the ending especially, but an excellent in-depth look at one way Harry could've turned out after the war and everything he had gone through with Voldemort.

Author's Response: GOT TO LOVE SOME PSYCHO!HARRY. I was going to enter this into a TGS competition at one point, and then got a bit selfish and kept it for myself. :D I can't regret this too much, though. I just am very proud of this story.

I have social anxiety and mild obsessive-compulsive disorder, as well, and most of Harry's experiences (like the step-counting you pointed out) are things I do on my bad days. Especially where he talks out loud to himself, repeating the same thing over and over -- when I'm embarrassed at something I've said, I repeat it constantly over and over while walking away. It's probably not the best thing to admit, especially for everyone to see, but I think it's important to mention that a lot of this story is based on extremely factual firsthand experience, if only to add credibility to the story.

Thank you so much for this review -- seriously! I am pleased as punch you like this, too, because I think you really /understand/ it, you know? Anywho. Long story short, I am so, so indebted to you, and you are just amazing in ways that words don't convey. Thank you so much!!
