aah!!! this was an amazing story! I couldn't stop reading it. You have a really good writing style and portray action very well. I was especially impressed that you started over to make it canon, and it was, for the most part. There was just one minor mistake. James would not have stayed alive if he was a horcrux, but only if someone sacrificed their life for him and protected him with love. This was the reason Harry had been able to survive the Killing Curse, because Lily had died trying to save him. This was why Voldemort could not touch him until the fourth book, when he was revived using Harry's blood and therefore also had Lily's protection. Harry became a horcrux because he was alive; he didn't stay alive because he was a horcrux. When Voldemort attempted to kill Harry, Lily's love acted as a shield and so the curse rebounded.The one seventh fragment of Voldemort's soul that was in his body was blasted away and latched onto Harry, who was the only living being in vicinity. So James could have only stayed alive had he had someone to sacrifice themselves for him. Other than that though, it was absolutely amazing, it is definitely one of my favorites, if not favorite story yet. I look forward to reading the sequel!!Author's Response: I understand that, and thanks for pointing that out for me, but in this story I did my best to approach this at a different route. I was using my imagination, and it's my belief that JKR only wrote one way that this could happen. Who is to say that it couldn't have happened another?
While you do point some things out, you are correct in all aspects, and I know that. I understand how it all worked. I'm just approaching things differently and. James was never dead. That's emphasized, and the key factor that led to making a horcrux has to deal with his brother that will be explained at a later date in the sequel. I know there has to be a sacrifice. And there was. That will be talked about in the sequel where hopefully I can provide some answers that satisfy you. But even if people don't see the possibility I do, then that's okay with me because I'm using my imagination and being creative!
I hope you can understand and bare with me as I experiment with this. I appreciate your worry, and thanks for taking the time to share this with me.
Thanks for the review, and I hope you enjoy the sequel. Hope to hear from you again! Report Review
Bah. I don't really like Harry's portrayal of a father. I'd suspect he'd be so much more involved with his kids because of his childhood. I dunno, and Ginny seems to be kind of absentee as well. Report Review
I really enjoy your characterizations. They seem spot on to me and I like how you've made Albus out to be the more popular of the brothers. Most fics have them in reverse. Report Review
Oh no! Of course it wasn't going to be that easy, I should have known. That was a brilliant stroke of genius to put the horcrux in there!
I have thoroughly enjoyed this story and I think you are a really talented writer. I was kept on my toes throughout the entire story and there wasn't any stage where I accurately predicted what was going to happen through all of the plot twists and turns. Definitely one of the most original stories I've read on here :) I also like how you did incorporate some romance but it didn't suffocate the story and seemed to enhance it more than anything.
I have to admit I'm actually kind of glad I got a few chapters behind, because it meant I got to read on straight away from the cliffhanger ;) Although I am sorry I didn't manage to keep up! I just had a look and noticed that you've already posted three chapters of the sequel! But unfortunately I don't have time to read them tonight but that's next on my reading list!
I'm looking forward to reading the sequel and congratulations on finishing the story! That's a long time to have worked on it, and you can definitely see that the time has paid off, as you have produced an amazing story :)
Ooh and thank you for including me in your author's note! I feel so privileged :3 But it was entirely my pleasure to be reading this :) Report Review
(I don't know why the archives won't let me log in to my account but AD is here with your review)
OMG you included me in your author's note, thank you! I am honoured that you are fond of my reviews =)
This was a BRILLIANT story. I really don't have much to say anymore. I mean, I loved every single chapter, every single paragraph, every single sentence, every single word of this story. You wrote your characters, and I lived their story. You crafted the scenes, and I went through those scenes. You wove your story, and I felt it all happen. Your writing is just that powerful and effective. I was really very attached to this story, and I was literally drawn into it the entire time I was reading it. You wrote some amazing chapters, created some superb characters, and invented a mindblowing story. Your plot, your scenes, your pace, your flow - everything was just perfect. The entire thing just had the right amount of romance, drama, suspense, thrill, and fun. I really really loved it. And I am going to miss this story a lot. I am so happy you're writing a sequel, which I am sure will be as awesome as this story, and I just can't wait to read it. You can count me in as your faithful reader and reviewer for the sequel too. Do put it up soon!!
As far as this chapter is concerned, I loved this chapter exceptionally, the way you did three different point of views and made it all the more interesting. I am pretty sure it was Parker who is alive (and whose horcrux perhaps resides in James) and I am so excited to see how the sequel unfolds. You have me in suspense and excitement as always.
Superb superb superb job!! I would give you a Infinity/10 if I could! I really enjoyed this story, and I am really looking forward to the sequel!

I just wanted to comment here to thank you so much for this beautiful story. I normally dont read stories that follow the next generation, but this one, i'm glad I didn't miss out on. Your stories have always been much appreciated and this one was so creative and inventive, you had me on my toes from chapter one. I've been following this story for quite a while now, so it's kind of sad to see it come to an end. I will miss your version of James and Albus, and even Harry who isn't always written very well here on this site ;) Keep on being a great storyteller and inspire us with your unique tales! love, from Sweds Report Review

Great! Absolutely amazing ending. I can't wait for the sequel. Report Review
Oh...snap. And crud. Cruddy, crud, crud! Like Voldy and Harry, now James and Parker are connected. Uh-oh. And I can understand why Harry hid the scar, but I got a feeling that will come back and bite him in the rear.
Oh, and thanks for the shout out. ;)
see you at the sequel! Report Review

No! Well now he's dead. But he can't be, can he? And that song was perfect. You may have gotten me hooked on that song. Oh please don't kill James. The story is called The Seer! He can't die! Report Review
He just took that curse, didn't he? No! Oh no, that body he saw is going to be his! Ah, don't kill James. This is so good and too intense! Report Review
Wow. The Namkens really are calling all the shots. Albus better be able to stop this! And this is when James's visions will come true. I just know it! Report Review
No way. It's here! Perfect chapter title. The time really has come. It's climax time! Elias and Parker better get what's coming! Report Review

Thanks for the review, and I hope to see you back for the final chapter. :) Report Review
OH SNAP! He's got a scar just like his dad's! I SO did not see that one coming, Drue. I knew he was alive, but I had no idea how. But that was not the reason I was expecting. Just...oh boy. Report Review
That Was AMAZING at first i thought because of the title was Like Father, Like Son that it was how they had both defeated death but for it to be THAT (being discreet cos i don't want to spoil it for others) WOW amazing i was holding my breath through the whole chapter
Cannot wait till the next chapter
