possessed too Psh, I still label him a douche hide spoiler Draco view spoiler And then we have Draco Oh my god, I need one So cute It s giving me whiplash, the hate for Connor and adoration for Draco And the ever so promising echoes of compatibility and romance to come is brilliant their mental twining, their tight friendship And the splashes of the pureblooded heir superiority in action Fabulous I like my characters multifaceted hide spoiler Sylarana view spoiler Um, hello, awesome Familiar not familiar companion Pinicle of traditional fantasy Owls have no chance, these snakes beat ALL Harry s owl Hedwig had, like, one mention in the last book hide spoiler Sniffles view spoiler I cried Kicked puppy is the worst, and again, chapter 10, Connor is a fucking douche I wanted to share Harry with Sylarana and hiss at fucking Connor Ungrateful brat And then chapter 11 Officially dead to me hide spoiler Other houses view spoiler Yay The other houses actually get a say now, they have exposure Rejoice And Harry s turning out to be a web of leadership and worthy of followship hide spoiler Harry s gift to Draco view spoiler Um, yup, extremely thoughtful, and super cute That was lovely hide spoiler The prophecy view spoiler The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches Born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies He is the younger of two, and he shall have the power the Dark Lord knows not For the elder is power, but the younger is power united with love O guard him, O shield him, for the darkness through which he passes otherwise is vicious and hideous, and love has but a scant chance of surviving The elder will stand at his right shoulder, loving him, but the younger will love the whole of the wizarding world The Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, and in so doing mark his heart The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches, born as the seventh month dies hide spoiler Harry s magic view spoiler That it s higher form is sentinent is rather awesome As far yet, not evil or good, but self serving, and wholly under will of Harry Extremely fascinating hide spoiler Snape view spoiler Fuck yeah, Snape Quickly becoming a favourite character Scratch that IS a favourite character hide spoiler Quotes view spoiler Wait until you see what we bought you, Harry It s wonderful And you can t guess what it is Go on, guess Why does he think that you can guess what it is when he just told you that you couldn t Sylarana hissed into his mindThis one is my second choice for someone to bite, if I cannot find your brother He is spitting on me Tell him to stop it hide spoiler view spoiler It s true that you ve given us no gift of equivalent price, Harry, she said gently Her smile reminded him of Sirius s when he had played a particularly good prank, but with a different twist to it You ve given us something greater She glanced sideways at Draco, who was examining the broom in silent rapture, and lowered her voice I have never seen my son so happy as he was this summer hide spoiler view spoiler I hope that utter prat isn t really going to be our Defense teacher Draco, said Narcissa You will show respect to your professors Draco turned and gave his mother an innocent look Even to him Narcissa s lips twitched, and Draco beamed hide spoiler view spoiler I am never going to get bored of you You speak with serpents That is rare You are myhuman, and I am going to defend you from other snakes who might try to take you away hide spoiler view spoiler Drop the shield, Harry he screamed Let me at him No, Harry said, and then felt slight movement behind him Draco, if you fire a spell at him, I will drop the shield, and then I ll hex you, he added hide spoiler view spoiler Harry nodded again and called on the Protego, which he wrapped around himself just a few inches above his skin It caused all the malicious hexes that the other students cast at him when the teachers weren t around to bounce right back at them Next, he cast a spell that Snape had shown them, Muffliato, one which made the voices of the other students sound like a distant buzzing in Harry s ears Snape had looked vaguely ill at ease when Harry had managed to change it so that it obscured the conversations of not just one person but all of them, except Draco, the other Slytherins, and the professors Harry did not know why It was a useful spell, and the variation was easy to make, just involving a bitemphasis on the first two syllables than normal hide spoiler view spoiler Well, I don t know, really, said Justin amiably, following him down the rows But, see, that s one of the nice things about being a Hufflepuff The Ravenclaws think that you have some deviously intelligent plan that your every motion is part of The Slytherins think or would, I assume, if any of them were aligned against you that you re just lying about everything The Gryffindors are sure that you re Dark, and they re in an agony trying to make everyone else see it But Hufflepuffs relyon common sense So I thought I d ask Are you evil and Petrifying people hide spoiler view spoiler You re the evil House, you know, he said Everyone always tenses up when there are Slytherins around And they relax with Gryffindors, or the Gryffindors think they do, and the Ravenclaws get asked for help on homework But we just get ignored It s weird hide spoiler view spoiler The box bucked in his mind, and Sylarana hissed at him Could you avoid talking about him unless you absolutely must You know how he gets.I do know, Harry told her, and stroked her back where she lay on his arm And you are a wonderful snake, a magnificent snake, for holding him in so effectively Sylarana made a small suspicious sound under her breath, but accepted the praise and the pettinghide spoiler view spoiler With wild rejoicing, with a glad cry, the power was free, and rushed up and around him Harry had never felt such magic It was mad It would tear everything apart if it could, take the sun and the moon from the sky and use them as juggling balls It knew no boundaries, no limitations Except that it will, thought Harry, and brought down his own will upon it hide spoiler view spoiler Let him believe what he needs to believe, or wants to believe, in regard to his brother Instead, offer him training, what he doesn t have and will yet need in the battles to come.It isimportant that he succeed than know why he is succeeding.But if and when he ever changes his mind I will be ready hide spoiler view spoiler Let Zacharias do this, Justin whispered He s the best I ve ever heard at this He s skeptical of everything He even talks back to Professor Snape if he doesn t think the potions are made right And people will take it better if they see it coming from someone who s not the person he s accusing, or a Slytherin hide spoiler view spoiler She closed her eyes And he said there weren t any Gryffindor Death Eaters, and I thought of Peter Pettigrew, and didn t say anything hide spoiler view spoiler And then the cold voice was silenced, because a different self had come forth from the box.It had no voice It had no boasting Harry could feel its rage, though, and the coldness of that rage.He opened his eyes to see Draco encased in ice, the dead basilisk frozen, and blue white fire cutting the darkness and racing towards Tom Riddle and Connor In a moment, Connor, too, was a statue, and then the magic reared high above Tom Riddle and the diary and stared at them.Riddle stared back for a long moment Then he swung his head to look at Harry, and his eyes had gone mad Not him, he breathed Never him It was you, it must have been, and the nature of our connection The silent self had had enough of him Down it coiled, and made itself into a snake, a constrictor, so black that Harry s eyes bled as he watched it His own voice was distant now, a sobbing scream, worse than a kicked animal would make He could do nothing but watch He was not in control right now The silent self was.It coiled around Tom Riddle and broke his ribs with one squeeze, his newly formed body with another, and then his life from him with a third Then the snake placed him on the floor, stretched its jaws wide, and ate him Harry felt, distantly, that cold power settle within him, consumed by his own magic, adding to its strength hide spoiler view spoiler Because he is ours, too, said the centaur, utter seriousness on his face His eyes were piercing, bright Vates hide spoiler view spoiler He had been a Death Eater He had been a Dark wizard, and still was, in the sense that he knew the Dark Arts He had sometimes thought that his sense of right and wrong had long ago drained away from him He had made his choices, but for selfish reasons as much as anything else His courage was nothing that a Gryffindor would recognize hide spoiler view spoiler Fawkes says that Harry Potter is on the road to being a vates, he said What is that All of us know, said Dobby, instead of answering All the magical creatures know House elves, phoenixes, centaurs, unicorns, dragons He shuddered convulsively as he spoke the last word We know what might happen No prophecies, no destiny, no masters What might happen, if it is chosen We wait, and we hope hide spoiler view spoiler They canceled our exams with all the excitement, you know Hermione was moping hide spoiler I have too many mixed feeling for this story First of all it felt so long The next books are far longer but CoS was never my favourite anyways, the settings and the events never intrigued me Maybe that it is why I couldn t enjoy this book.Harry s thoughts make me rage His obsession with Connor can t be healthy at any costs and whatever Lily or Dumbledore say doesn t change it This is why I don t understand why some of the adults don t interfere I mean yes, Remus tried and I loved him for i I have too many mixed feeling for this story First of all it felt so long The next books are far longer but CoS was never my favourite anyways, the settings and the events never intrigued me Maybe that it is why I couldn t enjoy this book.Harry s thoughts make me rage His obsession with Connor can t be healthy at any costs and whatever Lily or Dumbledore say doesn t change it This is why I don t understand why some of the adults don t interfere I mean yes, Remus tried and I loved him for it But what about Mcgonagall She was aware of the abuse, some of it at least And the book was long enough for her to notice someConnor makes me want to stab a knife into my stomach I don t care if he is possessed or some shit, I don t find him sincere Maybe my opinions of him will change if I decide to go on with the series but for now, I want to strangle his throat and burn his the boy who lived arse I had always this problem with fanfictions OOC feels so wrong to me It s obvious in this story that the author had to change the personalities of characters, I can t find it convincing Draco is too soft, Lily is too horrible that it feels like this is some Lily bashing story I know it serves the story but it still bothers me , James is too stupid, Sirius is too prejudiced when he denied all those pureblood shit because he wasn t a prejudiced bastard I can go on and on.I still liked the book better than the first one I think Characterizations weredetailed and finally Harry had some common sense and most of all, he showed Draco he cared for him It looks like I am cold hearted, I didn t even bat an eye reading last chapters, that was supposed to be dark Or it is just it hasn t been long enough since I read Song of Achilles Harry Draco friendshipSlytherin HarryMentor SnapeAUJust as good as I remembered, and I m enjoying thisknowing how the series end and noticing small things knowing they re going to be explained matter later in the story. Even better than the first one I love the characters Narcissa is awesome Remus is awesome Dumbledore scares me Compelling plot that mirrored the Chamber of Secrets while also containing new and creative elements The exploration of occlumency is fascinating. 4.5 starsAfter finishing this book, I realized that there is no way turning back I must prepare myself for this promisingly long, but incredible journey of several thousand of pages in this series next year Oh, my review on this book it s weird, yet addicted since I m only used to the original story of Harry Potter however, this series will take me to another new time line of my most favorite series of all time it s time to buckle up. I ll review the series once I finish but may I just say Wow This isJust Wow. Definitely as good as I remembered here s a series that makes me happy from so many points of view, not the least of which is its brilliance.Reading it for the second time is different from reading it the first time around I noticedthings, I knew what to dread and what to enjoy while it lasted And I really love how everything is working awesomely together. Whoo When I said in my review of 1 that I hoped she d relax into the world and let us spendtime with and get to know the characters a little , I had no idea my wish would be granted to this extent.This was incredible A fascinating, enthralling, heart breaking, inspiring examination of the mind, free will, responsibility, sacrifice, friendship, and family.We learnabout what has really happened to Harry because of the way Lily chose to raise him It s fascinating to get to head Whoo When I said in my review of 1 that I hoped she d relax into the world and let us spendtime with and get to know the characters a little , I had no idea my wish would be granted to this extent.This was incredible A fascinating, enthralling, heart breaking, inspiring examination of the mind, free will, responsibility, sacrifice, friendship, and family.We learnabout what has really happened to Harry because of the way Lily chose to raise him It s fascinating to get to head hop and therefore see multiple peoples reactions to what is going on in Harry s head The descriptions of what the structure of Harry s mind has become were vivid and powerful, and having so many of the battles take place there was fascinating Yes, this is dark But it never claimed to be otherwise, and we re also given the assurance just before the darkest chapter that things only get better from here Plus, ever and always in the midst of the darkness there s some light and some hope.Draco is the most vivid example of this This Draco annoyed me in the first book and the first half of this one He just seemed so one dimensional in is adoration of and devotion to Harry He seemed weak and silly when Harry tried to break off their friendship for Draco s own good, and Draco kept refusing But after view spoiler he stands up to Harry and insists on going with him to the Chamber, hide spoiler I loved him for his simple and uncomplicated view of the world Things get so VERY complicated after that point, with seemingly every character having several different secrets and motivations for doing some of the horrible things they ve done Draco became the breath of fresh air The one thing I didn t have to question That was fantastically well done and I find myself eager to return to this world for book 3 partly to get to seeof how he develops and whether he continues as the only ulterior motive free person in Harry s life.The whole thing was beautifully well done I can t wait to see where we get taken from here A Review In Six WordsFanfiction has never been so good.
