Notes: This is a departure from what we know of how his sixth year summer will go (meaning, that it’s to be his shortest stay ever at Privet Drive, and it’s not even mentioned here) and gallops quite merrily into the world of AU. If betrayal fics aren’t your cup of tea, or if over-powered Harry isn’t your flavour of the month, you may not like this story. Final note is that I wrote this a long time ago, so the beginning of it is rather fast-paced so I could get to where I wanted to go with the barest of fuss—it may or may not approach believable, but I’m not sure I care.

Some people actually hated this story. <shrug>

It does have a lot of problems in it. I’ve done things which now I think are ridiculous and have Voldemort make assumptions he has no right to make unless he was feeling insanely optimistic (and even then it’s laughable in terms of logic). However, I think the story is more about the relationships, so....

Comments:

“That was totally and completely awesome! Everything was perfect and the plot was original and delicious. It wasn’t your cliche Harry-goes-to-Voldie story, it was what all those stories should strive to be.” — Midnight-sama

“Oh. My. Gawd. that was fantastic! I literally couldn’t tear myself away from the computer, it was that entrancing. I love the plot, the character formation, the brilliant choice of words and witty dialouge. How can one improve upon that? The answer is that they can’t, so don’t, just keep writing; you’ve got me hooked!” — Kirsti-Lee

“I really love your attention to detail - it makes the story even more believable. But the best part, of course, is the easy, natural rapport you’ve established between Voldemort and Harry. It is this, more than anything else, that gives your work its uniqueness and charm.” — The Wandmaker

“The twists and turns, the character development, the humor, the angst, it is all very well done. You have managed to change all the major players... Tom, Brand, Draco, Remus, Severus, and Dumble... and have provided very believeable reasons and progressions for all of the necessary changes.” — DrarrySev
