First of all, wow! This is one of those fics that make me wonder why the author is not off writing stories and selling them so that more people can enjoy their creativity and making millions. Or you know just writing for a niche fan base (like some writers do; i.e. sci-fi, fantasy, romance...) and making a reasonable living and being happy. Because one or the other is what you should be doing.

This story was really creative and at first made me thing that it was some sort of HP fan fic with a bit of Fringe creeping in. However, I was quickly realised that it was much more than that because it was a whole lot more complex than one simple episode of Fringe (its more like one whole season/series of it). You explained everything about time travel and magical time travel so well that it made me think that you were some lead scientist in theoretical physics or just really good at research (and as I sit here typing this I also just realised that you could also be an avid reader of science fiction). It was all just very impressive.

When everyone started traveling back in time I though it was about to get massively confusing, but your skills shone through again by being able to create a way to have three Harry's without confusing the reader.

The plot was amazing! It was just brilliant.

I kept thinking that when Harry was looking at his alternate version and thinking that Harry Three was a reck, but still the best possible future that all he needed was Draco as his crutch and make him and everything better. But you took it a whole other way that I was not expecting. It still amazes me everything that you wrote and you still managed to make it epilogue compliant, in a weird way. Not that I am a big fan of it, but whatever.

Anyway, I am sorry for the long comment, but I have been working nights and sleeping days and just taking the odd time here and there to read fest fics and not really getting enough time to leave anyone comments and its a new year and I am have stopped working nights and I am now rambling in a comment. I should be sleeping.

Again, I really enjoyed this fic! Especially the Harry Makes out with Malfoy in a Bathroom scene. It was one of my favourite bits of the whole fic. Ever if Harry mucked it up a bit, but hey, its Harry.

OK, so, over a month since the fest ended, I'm finally finishing comment replies! ::hangs head in disorganized shame::

Hee - your comment re. making a living off writing made me giggle when I read it, because I had just finished listening to a friend who is busy selling her third book, and she'll tell anyone who will listen that they must never, ever, ever go into writing professionally if they value their sanity. Of course she always ends it with "Of course I never had any sanity to begin with!"

I have never seen Fringe! Something tells me I should correct that, what with being an avid enough sci-fi fan to name myself after a minor X-Files character :D :D

I'm so glad you liked the story, and that it wasn't hopelessly confusing! And the Harry/Malfoy in the bathroom... hee! I'd feared getting shot for not even letting them progress to second base, but like you say, hey, it's Harry ;)

Thanks so much for your review. You never need apologize to writers for writing long reviews - at least, not to this writer. I'm flattered when one of my stories gets a "Cool!" or "Nice story!" from a reader; getting a review as lovely as yours makes my day :) :) :)
