Was quite possible the most messed up thing I've ever read..
It was well written, though.
Still really screwed up, but it was well written.

30th May 2012:
I've just stumbled across the story and WOW!
It was just amazing. You got the characters spot on and even though the ending was tragic it also felt right, like that would have happened.
A definite 10, amazingly written!

Author's Response: Thanks! I loved writing this story.

Review #4, by queen_potter In Which Harry Plays the Hero

3rd September 2011: i've read this story twice. Once when it was published and once now and it still gets me each and every time.
It reminds me of the movie The Butterfly Effect. How no matter how hard he tries to change the outcome of things it never ends up being how he wanted it to be.
I wish that he hadn't decided to kill Lily. But, I can understand how Harry felt that was his only option.
Very well written, well done. 10/10

Author's Response: Thank you so much! This was a very tough story for me to write. But it came to me so quickly.

Review #11, by HG_HP_fan In Which Harry Plays the Hero

9th August 2010:
This is the worst ending I have ever read. Harry Potter kill his own daughter? Unbelievable.

Author's Response: I'm so sorry you disagree with my ending. It is unbelievable. But don't you think living so many lives wouldn't just make you go mad? I know I would.

Thanks for reading!

Review #13, by Ginnygal In Which Harry Plays the Hero

3rd June 2010:
u no, i like this 1 chap story much better than all those ones which have 36 chapters or sumthing bcos its soo... cool

One thing tho... u no the last sentence? 'I was found guilty of the murder of Lillian Luna Potter and put in Azkaban for the rest of my life'?

It sounds a bit vague... maybe u cud elaborate.

Apart from that, I wud think this is the best story I ve ever read.

Author's Response: It was supposed to be vague :P

Thank you so much though - that's very kind. Your reviews help me as a writer.

Review #14, by Dmali In Which Harry Plays the Hero

20th February 2010:
wat on earth, umm. wouldnt it be better for her to be pregnant than dead. and why not enjoy ur time with her over the years. but to kill ur own daughter. to rob hermione of her child in that way? i dont get it. interesting concept with the futility and the inevitability of fate. but the conclusion not so nice.

Author's Response: The conclusion wasn't supposed to be nice :)

Review #15, by nisalurve In Which Harry Plays the Hero

8th February 2010:
Agh! WTF! When I started this I thought Hermione would drown her, since there was all this intense pressure, but I guess not. I love the story, the only thing I would say is that on the first part, Hermione is screaming. A lot. And I know that Hermione is a character driven for perfection, but I imagine her anger as more icy than being all hot headed, if that makes sense. Anyway, great, but tragic story.

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it :) I know, it kind of throws a curve ball.

Thank you for your review!

Review #17, by cherry In Which Harry Plays the Hero

26th January 2010:
sorry but that was my initial reaction to that ending. well written fic but WTF! is wrong with Harry. He should have cherished his years with his daughter not killed her when she was like five. And the one time when Lily got pregnant wasn't that bad. If he had just stayed in that time frame she'd still be alive...

Author's Response: Haha yeah, but the way I wrote Harry was supposed to be confused.. conflicted.. he was trying to change something, to make it better. The point was for it to end badly ;D Bad, but it worked :)

Review #18, by HogwartsGirl618 In Which Harry Plays the Hero

17th January 2010:
I am in shock. Trust me, the banner of this story does not scream 'happiness'. The summary gave me the odd illusion that I was being tricked, and I started to read. And I'm justifying to myself the title at every step - oh look! Harry is drowning in inadequacy, Hermione is drowning in pretense - Lily is drowning under pressure! And now I am attempting to make sense of this. Harry just drowned her! DROWNED her! It was so well written, so tragic, so heartbreaking. This story - truly - it's exceptional. I'm sure this review is fragmented but my brain is yelling many different things at me at the same time ^_^. Everyone was so in character but it was so original - I've never seen this twist to Hermione. And Draco? Having him there, in a vortex of faux perfection - I found that to be fascinating. And Luna - the whole recital was such an interesting idea! And his fight with Hermione! All of this chapter was stunning. Harry's character - how he tried to psychologically cope and twist fate. How he tried so hard and his conclusion that it didn't make the slightest bit of difference. The end was - I don't have words. You are brilliant. 10, definitely :) I'm in full fledged fan girl mode right now. *hug tackles* xoxoxoxoxo

Author's Response: I LOVE YOU SARAH! Your review means everything to me! It's my story and yet you put it in a new light for me. I love the fact that you loved my story! It absolutely means the world to me.

Review #19, by hermysquill In Which Harry Plays the Hero

14th January 2010:
I liked this story! Useually time turner stories are all campy and "Hooray, we saved the world!" but this had a more real feel to it. Aside from the fact that I think you've taken Hermiones need to be perfect to an ooc level, it all really works. I can see Harry doing what he does. Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you very much :)

12th January 2010:
Oh my goodness, this was such a tragic tale. I nearly cried. But I like the detail and the emotions that poured out of it. I just feel bad for poor Lily.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you like it :) I was trying to capture the feel of the entire conflict; and according to you, I did :) thank you for reviewing!
