Just another fan of Harry Potter. I might write fanfiction someday, but for now, I'm having too much fun reading it.

The Dark Lord has conquered death, but Dumbledore's plan may yet win a bloodless victory. With only a pair of unlikely bodyguards, Harry must leave behind everything--Hogwarts, his friends, even the girl he loves--to find the one thing that may stop Voldemort. But can even the Boy Who Lived prevail if his journey should take him to the darkest part of his heart?

This is one of the most fascinating fanfics I have ever read. The things you've come up with are nothing short of astounding. I think you will make a fine writer of your own original work someday. Good job! I can hardly wait your next update!

Author's Response: Thanks for the vote of confidence, hp_fangal! I'll be sure to update soon, for all our sakes.

So, for a long time I ignored this story whenever it was updated, and then I decided to take a chance this evening. You have not disappointed. This story is so intriguing that I just kept reading until I realized that there wasn't a next chapter yet. Very good work! Hope to see the next chapter soon!

Author's Response: Thank you very much!  The next chapters are on the way.  ~Six~

Chapter 25: Intervention
Reviewer: hp_fangal (Signed)
... Wow. This was a pretty intense chapter. I loved it, especially that scene with Ron and the twins. And I have an intense love of AU stories; they're so fascinating when you consider the "what-ifs" of a decision, or go all out and change almost everything. I've evern read an AU that took place in a world under the rule of an immortal emperor where wizards are in control. Anyway, I loved this chapter, and I'm very excited for the next one.

Chapter 26: Resistance

“It’s simple when you're using your brain, Ron,” Fred said.

I think that's my favorite line in this chapter. Anyway, I love how you've planned this all out. The connections are so clever that you overlook the solution all too easily; it's brilliant! When Cush said that the answer to breaking the curse was in the curse, I spent a good amount of time looking over the information you had provided so far, but I hadn't quite reached the conclusion. Very good work! I love this story.

Author's Response:

Thank you again!  It really inspires me when I get reviews like this.  So, thank you! I can't thank you enough. As for the solution to the Curse...  it is in the curse itself, but whether Hermione was right or not...  will be revealed in the next chapters...   so I hope you keep reading.  *impish grin*

Chapter 27: Duel
Reviewer: hp_fangal (Signed)
... And the suspense builds. This felt more like a bit of a transition chapter, but things are being set in motion. Ron's finally going to get that knight training, and hopefully Cush will be all right. I'm not entirely sure I want to know the answer, but I'm going to ask anyway: Is Cush their offspring? With the physical description and the mention of a paradox, it seems likely...

Anyway, another brilliant chapter. I'm definitely excited for the next one.

Author's Response: ...And transition chapter it is.  This marks the end of Book One Part One.  And the answer to you question is coming soon...  Thank you very much for the review!  ~Six~

Chapter 28: The Defender in Végtelen
Reviewer: hp_fangal (Signed)
I knew my lessons in chinese would pay off someday!

I feel so sad for Cush. Such simple desires that we take for granted, he can't have. I imagine I'd cry too in his situation.

So, I guess Cush really is supposed to be Harry's offspring. His longing is for a parent, from what you described. Lullabies, hugs, kisses... all such simple desires. But you make it out that Cush is different from the other Keepers, and not just because he touched Harry. Remorse, guilt pain... you even mentioned fear and an intense caring in earlier chapters, which I'm guessing is different from what We Peng and Felix were talking about.

Harry has fallen in love, has pretty much experienced it in all but physical intimacy with Ron. From what I understand, that never happens. Defenders have always been Knight's from the Bureau, but Ron isn't. That also never happens. The Defender and Bearer have rarely come into contact at such young ages, let alone being close like Harry and Ron. Near as I can tell, this time around is the best chance of breaking the curse once and for all. The question is whether you will write it that way, or if they'll fail.

In any case, please keep me guessing. This story is the most intriguing one I've come across in a long time. And yes, it was another excellent chapter that will give me much to think on.

Author's Response: Sorry for not responding for so long, got caught up with the writing--anyway...  Again--thank you!  The reviews are really inspiring.  I am glad that the story has that kind of effect on you.  I hope I'll continue to deliver.

Chapter 29: Seven Disks in Seven Temples
Reviewer: hp_fangal (Signed)
Oh, I could starting squealing like some silly little fangirl! *squee!* This is honestly one of the best slash stories I have ever read, and I desperately hope that Hermione's right. But ... Voldemort knows now, doesn't he? Wormtail would be a fool not to tell him at this point, though I really hope he doesn't. Anyway, wonderful story, beautiful chapter!

Author's Response:

Thank you!  Well, I am very glad that you are enjoying this story this much.  I hope that I will be able to bring more--and soon.

 Again, many, many, many thanks.
