Wow, that was amazing - brilliantly done! So well written.
My favorite describption:
they kept to themselves until at some undefined point in the earliest hours of the night when sleep and reality hold equal sway,
Author's Response: Hi, thanks for reading and commenting. It's always lovely to know that people are still reading this. It's also really nice when people put things like favourite quotes and dialogue and things in their reviews as it's interesting to see what grabs different people so thank you for that.

My first reaction after reading this was just ... WOW ...
It was heartwrenching and heartwarming at the same time. There was a scary sort of logic in the notion that Voldemort's death could have sucked Harry's magic away from him somehow and it made me shudder to think that could have been a plausible ending to the books. And of course, there was logic in Neville's explanation for how that happened.
I could sadly see Harry running away if that had happened, and it is so perfectly believable that Ron would have gone after him, no matter what the cost to himself, and that he would have somehow found the strength to give Harry whatever he had to in order to make him whole again.
Powerful, and beautifully written. As much as I liked the one I just betaed, I have to say it pales in comparison to this one and really makes you appreciate the distinction between a fluffy, happy piece and soul sucking angst.
I really hope you will do the sequel at some point, and give Harry at least a little chance to be in control again.
And for goodness sake, give us back that gorgeous messy dark hair!
Very well done indeed!
Author's Response: Hiya, Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment on this story. I did try to say that the story you beta'd for me is a little piece of fluffy fun really in comparison to how I would normally write but I'm glad you've had a chance to see that for yourself. I do know how I would start a sequel to this if I ever feel like I have the time or inclincation but at the moment I am working on a long H/R piece and, although I'm a very slow writer compared to some, I am very much enjoying it. I'm sure we can let the hair grow back at some point although, it should be said that you have put your finger on a quite important plot-point there for the sequel, as it is currently in my head. Thanks again, for everything....

wow. just as impactful as the first time.
in fact - i'm sure there was a section in the middle - the introduction to the more graphic brutal sex/power play - that i'm sure i've not read before.
the passage of explanation of what goes on in the silences between them was quite stunning.
Hiya, I can't believe you read it again! but thank you nonetheless. There really shouldn't be any new material in this story here and I have had a look and can't find anything that might have been added later at the point you mention. I'm not above correcting missed mistakes and typos but I don't think I'd add new bits to an already 'published' story. I'd love to claim credit for the silence-talking but, to be honest, at that point I was fed up of writing dialogue and needed things said that would take them ages to spit out if they had to use words - glad you think it worked though.

Oh my goodness you have me completely enthralled!
This is such an amazing and complex story and I can't wait to read what happens with our boys next. I'll be eagerly awaiting the next installment.
Thanks so much for soldiering through all 30,000 words of this and taking the trouble to comment. I'm really glad you liked it and it's always lovely to hear from satisfied readers.
In fact I meant to upload this as a 'complete' story. I do have an idea for a sequel but for the time being, the idea of even making a start on it seems rather daunting and I have a couple of unrelated stories on the go too. I guess I'm saying: don't hold your breath.
Thanks again for your kind words,
