I have to say that I disagree with you that this isn't as good as your older works. You were one of the first authors I found when I started reading Harry Potter fanfiction years ago and I've read everything you have posted. While this isn't as bright or as "happy ending" as your earlier works I enjoyed it just as much.

I quite look forward to seeing how you finish this out.

On the first part: I'm reminded of a situation with a friend of mine, who was seeing enemy action where enemy action wasn't there. Sometimes it isn't that the world is out to get you. It's that just enough of the world is out to get you that everything is colored to the point where you think it is. That's the point Harry was driven to - where everything seemed like enemy action - and the development and manifestation of Harry's psyche was well done. As for the second part... some people just want to watch the world burn. And sometimes, as Albus demonstrates, the world just needs some creative pyrography. It felt wearying to read. But that's sometimes how life is: going through hell and hoping the light at the end of the tunnel isn't an oncoming train. Overall, an excellent, well-developed work. I don't call it fun, but I do call it worth every moment. Thank you.

Nice story! I loved how you showed how everything wrapped up and why; and that you didn't follow the route of everybody not learning from there mistakes and actually showed remorse that wasn't blown way out of proportion.

I'm both happy and sad that you won't be putting as much time and effort into your stories, but a persons life and the balance in it is important. I hope that you will at least continue posting little by little as the stories are wonderful and deserve to be finished.

Well I continue to enjoy your efforts and I certainly understand that as time passes ones focus can shift to different pursuits. I wish you success and happiness in your endeavours and will likely continue to enjoy your occasional visit to the HP fanfiction world. Thanks for writing. W.

Great story, both parts. You still manage to evoke a great deal of emotions from your readers.

Anyone that ask for perfection, or is not satisfied, can write their own. I thought chapter one was just fine, and this chapter also, and thank you for them.

Badass Dumbledore! I approve. Regarding the question in the closing note, I choose to look at the events of Chapter 1 as a brutal slap in the face to Dumbledore (and a few others), the kind that makes you reevaluate your life and decisions and leads to lasting change. (Subject to events in Chapter 3, of course.) The wizarding world as a whole? Not so much.

Regarding the opening note, -eyes rolling-. Several people on one mailing list and one forum I read were bitching about Chapter 1 and Harry is evil and blah-blee-bloo... while explicitly stating that they didn't even read the entire chapter because Harry was so despicable. They implicitly stated that they're dumbasses, that they don't know what they're talking about, and that their expressed opinions are about as important as a dog fart. You certainly owe them no apologies or even explanations, not unless they're paying you or you have some other obligation.

Your recent writing is as good as before, I think. Better, maybe. Different feel than your earlier work, certainly, but there's nothing wrong with that. Words per month is down, but having a life is no bad thing, either.

Interesting ways to partially redeem Dumbledore after the fact. If you continue this at all, it will be interesting to see if anyone else manages to get as far

Love this story.

I personally think this is a very good story and really don't know what everyone else is bitching about. I thought it was very good and hope you continue it. Don't listen to the naysayers, especially ones that don't write themselves.

Good job I loved it. Even though this was a serious chp. You still had a funny part with the mer-people. Can't till the next chp.

Despite what others may have said - given your AN at the beginning - I'm loving this story. I think the writing is great, the idea is certainly unique, and you're taking things in an interesting direction. My only real question is about how Harry was speaking in this chapter... even if he hasn't spoken English in a couple months I don't think it would have degraded his speech that much. That aside, again, a great chapter, I can't wait to see more from the Harry side of things.

The only "bad" thing about the story is Bumble's sudden change. I don't see any one as certain of their own godhood as Bumbles accepting their failures and doing something about it. People can rationalize anything, and Bumbles more than most. Love the story. Hope Harry is having a LOT of fun at the enclave.

I can't speak for anyone else but I have enjoyed reading Enslavement. When things in our life changes of course we change with it. You have reached a new place in your life and your writing is changing along with it. Don't let the reviewers with the negative messages bother you. You and your writing are growing and they are choosing to be left behind. Looking forward to whatever writing you choose to grace us with.

I enjoyed this very much. Harry did what anyone would do when cornered - use any means possible to get out of it. It's not his fault that everyone thought the worst of him - by this point he was used to it, I'm sure.

Will there be another chapter? Just curious to see how this will play out. If not, that's ok, too.

And thank you for sharing your vision of the HPverse with us.

Jane

Honestly? I really loved this story both first chapter and second and I don't understand why you are being so hard on yourself? Your grammar is excellent as always and the plot is new and inventive compared to the normal tripe that represents 90% of the hp fanfiction out there. In short, excellent work and I would honestly like to see a 3rd chapter that shows Harry finding love or at least satisfaction and fulfillment in his new life at the enclave. Thanks for sharing, I had been checking your site all day for this update and am glad it finally came. Cheers!

I liked this. Fan fiction with an excessivly manipulative to outright evil Dumbledore has been much more common in recent years, but when I started reading fan fiction he was more often the good grandfatherly mentor. Either way, I've come to enjoy stories where he gets what he deserves - for good or ill.

Which is to say I like his character here. He's taken some hard blows, but he's also looked at his mistakes and made more than a token start to change things for the better.

As always, thank you for writing and sharing it with us.

This was great! Thank you for enriching my life with your writing. I can only hope there is more to this story, but if not, thank you for writing what you did.

Interesting other-side view of the story. Did Albus change? Yes, I think so. Did he successfully change anything around him? Yes, I think he did, at least in the short term. He acknowledged his failure and while he couldn't make it up to Harry, he did at least take steps to prevent it ever happening again. And I did so love the repercussions upon Gryffindor House for their expulsion. Serve 'em right.
