Review #1, by Hasane I see (love) when I close my eyes

22nd December 2017:
It has almost been a year since I have read this story, and its vividness still rings clear in my mind.

I remember all of the characters, and how much I fell in love with your characters, and how much by the end of this chapter that I so wished for Albus, Piper, and Nick and all of the other Slytherins to have their—maybe not happy—hopeful ending.

Every part of this story is so amazing—it was literally everything I was looking for: strong friendships, but an undefined, and perhaps an even terrifying, future for the next generation kids. I love this rendition specifically because it acknowledges and works off the idea that maybe the Slytherin house would not be so redeemed after the war. I love that. This isn’t really a story I couldn’t pull off myself because I love my next generation kids too much to torture them like this. Fortunately, you did it for me. (I have no doubt in my mind that you love your characters though.)

I also love how you handle each and every one of your characters’ spirals into depression; in the beginning it was so hard for me to tell that anything was wrong in the first place. And then everything started to fall apart bit by bit, and we were starting to see how far into depression Albus—and everyone else—really was. It was insanely easy to turn against Albus’ family, and it was easy for me to get angry at them.

This also happens to be the one story that cemented in my mind that there is no place else for Albus except for Slytherin. And the chapter titles are so creative—I’m not sure whether they are part of a song or something like that, but they fit so well with the chapters you write. I think by far my favorite one is the most recent one: “I see (love) when I close my eyes”. I don’t know why, but I think something about that line struck a chord in me. It just—it fits Albus, Piper, and Nick so well. My heart literally hurts when I think about this line. I really couldn’t tell you why.

I honestly could not tell you how much I really love this story, and I think it would be impossible for me to stop singing praises about it. But I will. I sincerely hope that you’ll get the motivation to finish this story, but if not, this will be a story I will always come back to even when I stray far away from Harry Potter (if ever I do).

Review #2, by rainy_days I see (love) when I close my eyes

18th October 2016:
This is an amazing story; really. It's a shame that this story hasn't updated in about two years. As much as I have my own theories on how this story will end, I would love to know how you think this story would end.

On Nick: She's such a great and believable character. I totally understand why she would react the way she did to the situations she was put in. I'm so curious as to what she went through; we only have small bits and pieces.

On Albus: He's so sweet! I loved Rhys' (was it him who did it?) view of Albus; it was exactly what I see and want in him. He's so strong and he doesn't deserve what he's given. None of them do. The scene where Albus breaks and rants about his life at Hogwarts: Ginny and Harry say that they understand, but do they really? Of course they do; but it's not what Al means, I think. I think he's saying that he should not be going through the stuff his parents did when his parents were his age. They fought for a better world, and their efforts should have payed but they didn't; not in Hogwarts at least. I sympathize with him and its a wonder he turned out the way he did.

On Piper: I love the way Nick describes her; it just makes what she went through that much worse.

That's all I have for now and I really hope you consider finishing this story.

Gah. I love this story so much! I've read it many times and it's near and dear to my heart. At first I really connected to Nick, but as I've grown I've also connected with Owen and Piper and Albus. This was my first fanfiction and it will remain my favorite. Thank you so very much. It truly helped me love Slytherins. Thank you.

Review #4, by Harini I see (love) when I close my eyes

30th July 2016:
This is honestly such an awesome story that I've had the pleasure of reading. I've finished this in about two days and I've cried approximately five times. I love how you characterized the Slytherin house; it's basically seen as the dirt under people's shoes or a bloody saint. You've shown that they have flaws and that they are fallible as well as showing their good sides. "Teaming up in the face of adversity creates a family," is basically what I got from this. The characters themselves are amazing and lovable. I really felt for them. Also, Nick's past is really bugging me. We've got bits and pieces but not enough to create a picture. It's really frustrating. May also say that the Al/Piper moments are immensely cute and they seem awfully close for two people who are "just friends?" I genuinely hope you find the time and motivation to update this story because it is amazing and a great read. Best of luck to you!! :]

Review #6, by happyanon I see (love) when I close my eyes

26th October 2014:
I read this one almost a year now. I cried so hard back then, and I'm still crying so hard right now. I don't know if this story has been abandoned or if the dear author still checks the reviews. I'm also a Slytherin. And I am so proud of it. It was funny my "sorting" from pottermore. Before I was even sorted everybody already predicted I was going to be one. I never knew why tho. All my life I thought I was Hufflepuff but then again, i always struggled on the caring part. Anyway my heart broke so mucn for Flynn,Nick, Piper, Albus, Professor Zabini, Kenzie, Lottie,😮 Thomas, Rhys,Allyssa and every single Slytherin being hurt or Blamed for the sins of their Father. Its such a sad thing. Despite being a story we can't deny that this might actually be as real as thd other stories. My heart just cries for Nick. What a brave little Slytherin,determined to fight and live. And Owen. Oh he's such a sweetheart. Owen,the warm sunshine after a snow storm. God I just want to hug every single one of the Slytherins. Honestly, I wouldn't be able to forgive James and Lily if I were Albus. It's just too much,it hurts too much and I just can't. Piper too with her family. I don't know how I'll ever forgive those people who did all those things to me if I were them. All the emotional,physical and psychological trauma is all too much. My tears wont stop!

Review #7, by StarlightAsteria I see (love) when I close my eyes

26th June 2014:
I love this story! I found it last night and read the entire thing almost in one go - my parents had to kick me up to bed even though I'm nineteen :). Seriously, this is fantastic. You make me laugh, you make me weep and growl with anger, it's brilliant. It's rare these days to find an author who is willing to put their characters through hell, something which I think makes stories so much better. Keep writing, whatever anyone tells you - you're fantastic! I can't wait for the next chapter :)

Review #8, by Jazmine I see (love) when I close my eyes

12th June 2014:
I LOVE IT! You are an amazing writer and I have no idea how you put this all together. Anyways, if you need any ideas, perhaps an epilogue where all the slytherins of that year get in a reunion and take a photo. You don't have to listen to me , but I thought it would be a cute way to end this fanfic. OH, don't forget Flynn!

Review #9, by Failed_and_Forgotten I see (love) when I close my eyes

23rd March 2014:
Is the end near? Because honestly, i'm almost fearing it... but at the same time i'm excited to know how things as *excuse me please* f*cked up as their life would end up. Would Nick be fine? Or would she die (for some sick reason in my head i want to see this happen//shot)? Would she be pleaded guilty as charge of being a murderer (which is most likely not XD)? Or would thing end up messy but satisfying at the end? Would they get through the trial in one piece? Would the Snakes have their sanity back?

I'm already in great depression of what initially happened to Nick and Flynn, and now Liam is her older brother and owen is trying hard not to breakdown and with even Harry effin Potter throwing everything out, and now this is driving me in the brink of insanity because my freaking house is already in the deepest pits of what the heck ever they do not deserve.
Excuse my rant of unimportant things but this is what really goes on in my head right now, I could literally feel the tension and sadness over the internet. //shot

It's been ages too, since i've dropped off here and i'm glad that i could read your new updates. I still think i might end up a lunatic because of this tho. (that i dunno if it'll be a good thing//dies)

Review #11, by BKL8008 I see (love) when I close my eyes

15th January 2014:
"I don't forgive you, and I don't trust you."

Probably the quintessential line of the story. As Don Henley said in his song "The End of the Innocence," - 'but happily ever after fails, and we've been poisoned by these fairy tales. Lawyers clean up all details, since Daddy had to lie.' I can't help but think of this song as I read over this story, and it makes me think that the roses-and-clover ending of the canon must, simply MUST, proceed into darker territory somewhere down the line.
While I cannot claim to have gone though anything like these characters have, some of us can certainly relate to the tragic moments when 1.Innocence dies, and 2.We confront the parent who failed about it.
In just the sentence above, you captured the conflict between Harry & Albus. Sadly, the damage is done, and there it is. A lengthy conversation between them isn't needed now, although there are certainly a few more nails that can be driven in here. I'll say it again - excellent work.

15th January 2014:
Thank you for another great chapter.

It was heartbreaking how the NEWT-students all felt like it was their fault that Flynn ended up doing what he did, but also very believable. Liam telling why he didn't know in the start of the story was well written. And THANK YOU for making Harry realise how wrong he has been.

I'll follow this story untill it's finished.

Review #13, by Olga916 I see (love) when I close my eyes

14th January 2014:
A wonderful chapter in a wonderful story from a wonderful writer. That said, it was a tremendous(but happily received) surprise to hear the connection between Liam and Nick. Hearing more about the upcoming trial is worrisome imagining Piper and Flynn being cross-examined by a draconian lawyer, who in my head closelh resembles a certain toady proffessor. All in all it was a much welcome update and respite from studying for semester exams. Sad to see this story end as it was the first one where I was so emotionally invested that I was brought to tears while reading, a feat not even accomplished by the great JK Rowling.

Two words: Excellent work.
You write such raw emotion and develop such real characters that we cannot help but be moved.
As always, worth the wait to see into this world that, more than likely, would have turned out like this - and not the canon.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review. :)

I'm sorry I haven't replied to your email--it's been on my to-do list for weeks-- but I'm so glad you're still reading this. I just can't see the generation after having such an easy time, like the canon suggests.

AH! MERLIN'S SOGGY UNDERPANTS! Sweet baby Jesus! I almost hate your cliffhangers as much as Rick Riorden's. I'm sitting here in my mothers car waiting to get home so I can reread this and do my happy/freak-out dance and squeal loudly to myself. You could definitely write professionally, just saying! AH! I love you and this story so much!

Author's Response: Trust me, I hate Rick Riordan's cliffhangers, too. I've thought about writing professionally, but that's definitely not happening in the forseeable future, sadly. Thank you so much for the review!

I didn't see that one coming. Hmm.
I'm happy that Al is starting to confront how bad he is, how broken he is. It's really comforting.

Now I've hoped that you would update this on MNFF but no. There are now three (?) chapters missing there. This story is the sole reason I've found this site.

Author's Response: I'm sorry I haven't been on MNFF, but it's a lot harder to get things done there and I keep forgetting to update there. :/ Thank you so much for reading it here, though, and Al confronting how bad he's feeling is going to be really important.

Review #19, by UnluckyStar57 Prologue: The Week of Tears

6th January 2014:
Hi! I'm here for the Eleventh Day of the Twelve Days of Reviewing. Today is devoted to reviewing stories in the mystery genre. :)

Wow, I really admire you for writing this story! I'm a Ravenclaw myself, but I agree with you--Slytherins are often given a very bad rap, just because a lot of bad guys came from Slytherin. It's great to know that someone is trying to show everyone that this is not the case for all Slytherins--it is incredibly dangerous to generalize and stereotype, and I am so glad that you're going to undermine all of the badmouthing that Slytherin gets.

I really feel sorry for Nicole, Albus, and Piper. As the only Slytherin first years, they'll have such a hard time withstanding the taunts and jeers from the other Houses. I can't believe that Albus' cousins and siblings are so cruel to him! And Piper... I always thought that Hannah was okay, but in this story, she obviously isn't quite as okay as I thought. Nicole definitely has the hardest life, though. As a foster kid, she's had to put up with deplorable situations, and the fact that her parents are in Azkaban doesn't make it any easier.

This is really intriguing so far! I shall read more later! :)


Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much for the lovely review!

The entire premise of the story is the backlash of Slytherins having a bad rep in Harry's era, and how that could carry over to the Next Gen, and also the backlash of the war.

Nick, Al, and Piper are only first years in the first chapter... the rest of the story is in their sixth year, but things won't get better. And generally, my headcanon Hannah is nice, but that didn't really work in this canon so I had to switch it up a bit.

Thanks again, and I would love it if you kept reading. :)

Review #20, by MeanieMeldrixEer Give Me Love

20th December 2013:
*kises* LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! so very beautiful! You are such a talented writer! One of my usual FanFiction rules is that I don't read unfinished stories, but I make an exception for this one! I love Jane (one of my own characters also being (coincidentaly) named Jane) but I missed Owen (whose name is shared with one my own characters also). Don't feel bad about the long waits- how you're feeling is much more important than our sillily fangirling! You're already so much more talented than my silly one-shots-because-I'd-never-finish-a-chapter-story self who cant make up her mind on how things end... anyway... Much respect!!!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I know it's not finished, but it's getting there. I'm starting to wrap up all of the loose ends before the trial, and I have the very last chapter written. Don't worry; Owen is in the next chapter, and just thank you. I think I'm okay to write this again.

Well worth the wait!
Apparently, the RSS feeds don't work, so I had no idea you'd even updated.
I really like the addition of Jane, and the fact that Hermione is Nick's defense. This has a lot of possibilities.
As always, well done.

Author's Response: Thank you so much, as always.

Be on the lookout when the queue reopens (Jan 3), because then I'll have 2-3 chapters ready to post.
