Reviews For These Cuts I Have

Nice touch to go to some levity, though encased in angst, to help dry the tears from Harry's confession. Damn! So well written!

Very well done!

Don't know how I didn't remember the first chapter, but now realize I have read this before ... at least some of it. That isn't important. What is important is the fact that you have created a simply marvelous story here, a literary portrait painted richly with character development and an amazing range of emotions! Outstanding!

Don't know how I missed this story when it was published. I love your first chapter! Only one concern ... the issue of Harry, who never actively tried to kill anyone and who was clearly only using a defensive spell, was no murderer. I know, I know, you say he wasnb't, but that he knew he was, nonetheless. No. He told Dumbledore that he would want to be the one who destroyed Voldemort back in the spider infested shed at the Burrow. Harry knew he had to end Voldemort, and he wanted to be the one to do it! Sorry to nit-pick here. Your work is always so extraordinarily good, but nowhere in the canon did Harry ever express a fear of becoming a murderer and JKR never ran that mistaken belief up the flagpole. She, like her lead characters, knew the difference between self-defense and murder murder ... and more fundamentally, between killing and murder. Despite this issue, I'm still thrilled beyond belief to see a new story from you, and one waiting after this one!!!

An amazing story. I loved the depth of the characters and their relationships with each other, both familial and romantic. Their journey made me laugh and cry. I am sorry to see it end. Beautifully written. Thank you.

In the books, Harry is usually the calm, levelheaded one in the midst of all of the chaos. Hermione is brilliant and powerful, and Ron is an excellent strategist. They're brilliant fighters, but they just can't think on their feet like Harry.

I just recently began reading FF in general and this site in particular, and while I often abandon a story after the first chapter because I find it to be too soppy or I dont like the direction the story is taking, I have read through the whole of this one in two days.

Melinda, another great, touching, and cleverly executed story. Very touching. I am sorry I did not leave many reviews, but I've been reading non-stop to get caught up after a heart arrhythmia nearly killed me sixteen days ago. Thankfully the doctors were great and my lovely wife of 38 years stood beside me in much the same fashion as you show Ginny supporting Harry throughout. By the way, I had thought you had turned the de-aging potion into a clever story arc. But you outdid yourself with the introduction of the poison! Great job! Thank you for sharing such a touching story!

Loved reading this story. You captured the characters so well and wrote about a lot of the hard aspects of trying to get through the summer after the war ended. Looking forward to your next project.
