I've recently come back to fanfiction and saw this story again, update soon please!Author's Response: Wow, you're a face I haven't seen in ages! Welcome back Omaha! I hope to work on A Darker Dream more soon since I do miss it. Report Review
Wow. I never read this story before so I can't compare the original to now. Each chapter pulled me in as I read along. I couldn't wait to get to the end to see what would happen to poor Harry. I felt for him and for Petunia actually. The characterizations of the three weren't far off. Can't wait to read the next chapter. You write beautifully by the way.Author's Response: The original was taken down a few years ago to make room for the rewrite. I'm tempted to bring Petunia back later on even if its just a cameo appearance. Thank you for the review. :) Report Review
Wow seems to be one of the only words that I can say at the moment! It was so beautifully written and the description amazing as the one before! It all flowed so nice and well together that it was no problem to read this chapter at all. It has made me thristy in want of more to the story! I can't wait to see where the next chapter takes these characters and how it all develops in time. I liked how you added the bit with Harry's family it felt really J. K. R. to me so great job on this chapter i really liked it! Great Job!

Wow i must say i loved your opening paragraph and it continued throughout the rest of the story. It all held me in! I loved your description and loved that you kept things as they are in the books such as petunia's hair. I think you have a great start to a story here as it really kept my interest throughout the chapter. I like the mysteriousness that you have around the girl towards the end of the chapter the effect really added to the story. I thought it was an interesting idea to have Vernon as physically abusive and then Harry finally leaves them after putting up with it for most of the summer. It's a very interesting story idea! Great Job!

2 of 15!
Well, Selena, what can I say?
You're a very good writer, you know... A very good one.
I've been trully caught in your story and I'd really love to read more of it. It's really original and intersting!
It's strange that you haven't posted since 6 of October...I hope you didn't leave us or something! It would be such bad...
~RamonaAuthor's Response: Thank you very much! I meant to respond to these a long time ago, but seeing this review here today made me smile again. No I haven't left writing fanfiction, I just keep losing track of time in RL and since this story is under deep revision it can be difficult to get it update quickly. Report Review
Guess who's here!
No... don't guess yet... Oh! And put the gun, knives and any hunting things down first...
So *takes a deep breath* ... Hey, here's mommy! Who MOMMY? That NaNo mommy that promised some ( some more) reviews to her children and completely forgot about it... Yep, exactly that mommy.
So, now getting back to the review... 1 of 15!
That was a good intro. The first paragraphs reminds me of how J.K. used to introduce us in her books. You described Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and Dudley really good, same as Harry's situation in that house. Though, I found it strange for Uncle Vernon to act that cruel... Afterall, he was scared of what Harry's wizard friends could do to him if he touched Harry.
However, the story seems really interesting! Can't wait to read the rest!Author's Response: Thanks for the review!! I always find the first chapters the hardest so I'm pleased you liked it in a way. This story is actually a rewrite of an older story, so it some ways thats why Vernon acts that way.poor excuse I know. Report Review
Excellent! I can't wait to see where this will lead.

Aw poor Harry! I like the sound of this woman, she's coool. I've never read the original so I can't tell if you've improved but your writing in the story is cool beans. It's been TWO YEARS since you've last wrote. No excuses you need to update.Author's Response: Thank you for the review Flying Squirrel. I was going through a rough patch in life and had to stop writing for a bit, and even though I'm returning finally, it will be some time before A Darker Dream is updated again. Thank you for your patience. Report Review
Please write more I miss a Darker Dream so muchAuthor's Response: Thank you for the review, but I'm sorry to say that A Darker Dream won't be updated for some time. Report Review
Hey Selene, this is one of my favorite stories, thanks for writting it. I was wondering if there is anyway you could please email me the first version while you keep writting this one? my email is rewop777atmsndotcomAuthor's Response: rewop777,
I'm so sorry about the delay, there is absolutely no excuse for it. I can't remember for the life of me if I e-mailed you previously or not. If I haven't, I beg for forgiveness, and if you're still interested please drop me a line sometime and I'll dig out the copies. Thank you for your review. Report Review
Have you decided to stop rewriting this story? If so, will you repost the old one somewhere or email me the 1ink you told maddog in the previous review. My email is srouse501 @hotmail com. I hope you start writing on this again. It is an excellant story and the previous version is excellant. Please respond.Author's Response: Thank you for the review Scott! I hope you enjoy the original just as much. Report Review
I really enjoyed the previous version of your story and I'm hoping for even more in this one. Have fun writing this and go at your own pace.Author's Response: Thank you for enjoying both the previous and current version of A Darker Dream. I can't apologize enough for the long break in writing, and I'm sorry to say this one won't be updated for some time. Thank you though for your review and support. Report Review
ur my fav fan fic author, tht was godlike plzz add more quicklyAuthor's Response: Thank you very much, derek. I try and update when my creativity and schedule allows, but sadly that isn't as often as any of us would like. Thank you for the review. Report Review
love the story so far but could you increase the updates and would it be possible to email me the origional chapter. my email is email@example.com
i would greatly appreciate it if you could send me the original chapters i loved it, and wanted to compare it to how the rewrite turns outAuthor's Response: Maddog098, if I could increase the updates, I would do so in a heart beat. To be honest, time has been non-existent for me for a bit. Full-time student, full-time job, homework, validating, miscellaneous Staffer work and real life have kept me away from writing. I do hope to get this thing update at least once before my trip this summer.
I appreciate you asking! While I'm not comfortable with sending actual copies of the chapters to people, I'm in the slow process of creating a website for the stories. The first seven original chapters of this story are already up and ready to read. I'll send you the link at the next chance I get. Thank you for your patience and your review, maddog098!

Not a bad rewrite. Although I am a big fan of the original version, I will stick with it to see hoe it turns out. Just asking but is there anyway to still read the original version?Author's Response: Hi Ken. First of all, thank you for your review. I'm glad you seem to like the rewrite, and I'm thrilled that you were a fan of the original. There is a way to read part of the original. I created a little website, that I never finished, and it only has a few chapters up right now. If you can contact me somehow, I'll give you the link, but I hope to have it up somewhere soon for others to access. Report Review
hey please update really soon i really like this chapter and cant wait for more!Author's Response: I'm so sorry about the wait for updates. Time has been non existent to write. I do hope to have this updated before my trip this summer, and I will be working on fics during bus rides on said trip. There will probably be lots of those. Thank you so much for your review and your patience with me! Report Review
Oooh, great first chapter, Mandy. Really dark and I have a feeling this is going to get darker still. If I remember correctly, I have only read two of your stories and, although they were great, I notice the improvement in your writing. I.Am.So.Going.To.Love.This. Heehee. Lemme know when you update, okay? And keep up the good job *huggle squish*Author's Response: When this story gets its turn on the updating wheel, I'll be sure to let you know. The original version of this story was dark and very poorly written. Very poorly. Thanks for the awesome review, Tahi! Report Review
Please keep going!!!Author's Response: Oh don't worry, I will continue this story. Its already pre-written basically, I just have to revise it. Thank you for the review. Report Review
