Wow I can't believe there are only two chapters left! This is seriously one of my favourite stories on this site. You have written it so brilliantly and the ideas and detail that you come up with are incredible. For instance the fact that you put the watch in there! (found it on page 15 of my Philosopher's Stone version) It seemed vaguely familiar to me but now I realise - but how did you remember such a tiny detail? I wonder when and why Snape ended up giving the watch to Dumbledore in this story's world.
I just noticed that your chapters are about 3000/4000 words but they always feel so much longer because there is so much detail and complexity in each chapter. Which is definitely a good thing!
I loved the part in there where Narcissa analysed what Voldemort called everything. I found it really interesting and it fit so well with the way he would view things. I realised as I read this that somehow, over time, my views of Voldemort have actually changed and I haven't thought of him as quite so powerful or smart. I completely forgot that as Tom Riddle he was a very intelligent student so of course he still would be. Your characterisation of Voldemort very much reminded me of that and just how powerful he was. I think you've really captured Voldemort and what he's all about.
I just read your response to TenthWeasley's review and I love how you explained Voldemort's power and how Lucius seemed so weak in comparison - so much of his life was spent in what was such a horrible way and then Voldemort just snaps his fingers and the reason for him having to live that life, Circe, is dead.
The way your incorporated Greyback was genius! I just can't even express how (not sure what word I'm looking for) excited? I was when that happened. It just pleased me for some reason.
Well I think I've rambled enough for now, even though I could go on forever. (and wow after hitting preview I think this is one of my longest reviews ever)
Also I've been meaning to read Run for months and months and months so I will try to get to that soon because it sounds amazing. I just know I'll probably read it in one go (because your writing is amazing and I'm enticed just by the idea of the story) so I'll need a decent amount of time to sit down and read it ;) and after stalking your page I've realised there are a lot of stories I haven't read which I shall have to hurry up and read - it seems I've just happened upon some random ones.
So pretty much just loved the chapter ♥

Author's Response: First of all, thank you SO MUCH for returning to this story even though I've treated it so unfairly and let it sit without updating it. I'm very grateful that I still have you as a reader. :)

I love what you said about how over time, you've stopped seeing Voldemort as a really powerful person - because I've done the same thing. On the other side of the epilogue, we know Voldemort's downfall, his flaws, his overconfidence. It's easy to want to water him down and make him more of a one-dimensional villain instead of someone truly terrifying, especially with funny stories floating around that make him a caricature and call him 'Voldy' (which I adore and am guilty of doing myself). But in truth, at this time period he was much more than a villain. He was a plotter, a manipulator. It was under his reign that he murdered some of the most skilled Aurors in Britain. So I wanted to underline exactly how easy it was for him to squash other people who had, up until that point, seemed powerful.

Eeep, if you do read Run I hope that you like it! I'm really proud of that story.

Thank you for reading and reviewing. :)
