I am. at present, a 60 year old retired AF MSgt. I love HP fanfiction and abhore the poor spelling, grammar, etc. I see in many stories. I now and then offer my services as an editor/beta to various authors.

The story is well written and has many good qualities and many people will enjoy it. I started reading it because of a recommendation in one of the Yahoo groups I belong to. That being said, I cannot continue reading this story. JKR has put HP through hell for six long books and I read HP fanfiction because it is the one place I can see Harry overcome all that has happened to him and be happy. I can read about him getting away from the manipulations of Dumbledore, the spite of Snape, being in love and having someone to love him. For this and many similar reasons, I can no longer read your story as I see that none of this will happen to him and that you have heaped even more suffering and isolation upon him. Good bye.

Author's Response: Judging a story that has yet to end is a sign that you are either immature or too young to understand the plot.  For both, I forgive you and feel sad that there are still people in the HP Fandom who are close-minded and shallow.  Though it's true that my version of Harry's life is far more grievous than what JK has written, it is also more impossible than that.  What JK has written about Harry--his suffering in the hands of the Dursleys--is a reality for many children in the world, and in my opinion is even more hurtful than my fantastical version of Harry's suffering simply because it can happen, and it is happening.  To the person who recommended you read my story, my thanks for your open-mindedness.
