Hello!

Hey there, its Gabbie with your requested review and I'm sorry that it took a minute, I had some really annoying real life issues. And I had to update for all my WIPs and blah, blah, blah, I need more cupcakes.
So! Onto this! Harry is really taking a risk, isn't he? I was so moved by how you described his emotions, I thought they were so powerful and touching. Heartbreaking, but they left an imprint on me and I was really feeling for Harry, he's letting his heart get the best of him now. What he wanted to do was so dangerous that I couldn't really believe it at first but after a moment I sort of could understand where he was coming from. Its been four years since he's last seen his son and knowing that he can finally hold him was too much. Though Geoffery did surprise me, I think he might have just used this opportunity to his own advantage to escape with Devlin. Not sure why, but I think he really cares about him underneath all the darkness and fear around them. I'm hoping that he'll be all right though, Voldemort will not be pleased when he discovers what he's done and the other Death Eaters are going to pay the price. I think you played on all of that SO wonderfully and the relationships you've given me between Harry and his family versus the life Devlin and Geoffery has was so well-done! ;)
As for CC's, your pacing is amazing, your characters great and thought provoking. You've got a few grammar things but nothing that a quick proof read can't fix. Thanks for the great read, I added this to my favorites! :D
Much love,
Gabbie

Author's Response: First off: *hands her a batch of freshly made cupcakes* I totally understand annoying life issues getting in the way.

Thanks you SO much for the review! Eee! ...and yes, I actually said that when I saw you had reviewed!

Geoffrey is not an especially NICE man, of course. He reminds me a bit of what Rowling said about Snape, that if Harry hadn't been Lily's child and if he hadn't had her eyes, Snape wouldn't have protected him at all. If Devlin hadn't been a werewolf Geoffrey would have never made this bond with him and- well I shouldn't say more about that here, you see more about it in the next chapter!

I think Geoffrey knows that his usefulness is limited by Voldemort's trust -which often seems near existent. If he was captured by Aurors and returned, Voldemort would kill him anyway, because his usefulness is with the boy and Voldemort wouldn't risk having him around Devlin if there was any doubt. So, I think he left Harry certain he would die and when he had the opportunity, he took it, because he figured that death at Potter's hands would be less painful. I can't wait to get all the stuff I have written UP. If you enjoy Harry and Geoffrey's characters I think you'll really enjoy Devlin - from his perspective.
:D :D @ you favoriting the story!
Don't mind me as I buzz over to your thread and re-re-request! :D
