This was ... BRILLIANT. Really, incredibly creative and very well written. I generally pride myself as someone who notices the hints and catches onto the plot fairly quickly. I often figure out the end to mystery novels in the first third and know what's going to happen next in movies, so it is quite a rare treat to have no effing idea what is going to happen!!

Honestly I don't think this was confusing even though you warned for it, sure you kept us waiting at times to find out what was happening but thats what makes a good suspense mystery. I really couldn't have told you who was going to survive, which plans would actually work and how everyone and everything was going to shake out until it happened. I especially loved this day slipped into cannon where Draco and Harry experiment, Snape, Lupin, Tonks and Fred really show what heroes they are (agreeing to right the TL knowing they will die), it was just great. And as much as I love to see all my Harry's and Draco's together there is a sort of satisfaction knowing that it's future Harry and Draco who essentially enable the epilogue (and it doesn't hurt that they get to live their happily ever after of sorts)!! [BTW- "Epilogue compliant? That's a good question!" you're too cute!]

Also I have to say that time travel fics/books/movies tend to freak me out. I don't like thinking of time as such a fragile thing and I loved how you presented it here, I was able to completely enjoy without the willes! Great job mystery author.

Oy vey, finally finishing answering lj comments on a fest that ended over a month ago! ::hangs head in shame::

I'm so glad you liked this story! Even though you had no effing idea what was going to happen - which, btw, made me actually laugh out loud when I read it :D :D

::beams:: Thank you! I found it confusing to write, actually, and had quite a time keeping everyone straight in my own mind - not so much who was who, but who had explained what to whom and when - so I wasn't too sure how that would translate onto the page. Screen. Whatever.

And as much as I love to see all my Harry's and Draco's together there is a sort of satisfaction knowing that it's future Harry and Draco who essentially enable the epilogue (and it doesn't hurt that they get to live their happily ever after of sorts)!!

Hee :) I think this was partly me trying to reconcile with canon!Epilogue. Because to a certain extent it almost had to happen the way it did, what with this being a children's series... but that doesn't mean our slasher hearts didn't die a little upon reading it ;)

Thanks so much for your wonderful comment!
