This story was very interesting, and well thought-out. It shows us 'the other side' of the disappearance of Ollivander the wand-maker, while also telling us about Ravenclaw's Horcrux. And, if I'm not wrong, about Fenrir Greyback's ancestors. (Tell me I'm wrong)

The pool of information which has been blended into this fic is large - but you've written it well. The history of how the letter-opener falls into Ollivander's hands is simply amazing - the Ice Dragon was something that even Voldemort himself didn't imagine.

By accident, actually. It has quite a busy history, as you might imagine… I have spent quite some time exploring its memories

This line of Ollivander's is one of my favourites. It tells us about the power of Ravenclaw's letter-opener. Ollivander tells Voldemort about the special powers of the letter-opener, which makes Voldemort want to use it as a Horcrux. The last few paragraphs come back to the second war, which makes us easier to link the history of the letter-opener with Horcruxes.

Dark - that is the first word I thought of when I finished reading it. But, after a few seconds, this is what I thought: So dark, so deep, so powerful...

The history of the letter-opener was simply amazing - with information that is crucial in the fight against Lord Voldemort

O_O Whoa.

Okay, I love you.

I'm really, really glad it came across that way - I remember, that's exactly what I hoped for when I wrote it. Did I mention I love you?
The only thing - Fenir Greyback. That was probably the biggest risk I took in this story. The man from the past actually isn't meant to be an ancestor of Greyback. It actually is him. At the end there is a sort of a flash of a scene, with Voldemort doing the spell to summon something from inside the Letter-Opener. That was when he summoned Fenir from 15th Century Turkey.

Well, Fenir's a creepy guy - may as well have a creepy past, right? Killing and turning a load of people... 450 years ago...

But yes, thank you so much for this review, and I'm sorry I took so long to reply. You've definitely made my day!

wow, this is very well written. I wonder if Voldemort will try to recreate the ice dragon. Though, from what you have wrote, i gather that even He wouldn't be able to control it.

Author's Response: *Delerious happiness* I really hoped that possibility would be something people left with after reading this story. Personally... I went with the thought that he would, at some point, try, and would need to be stopped. Thank you very much for reviewing!

As I've already told you, I think this is a brilliant piece. It's creative, tells a wonderful tale, and has plausible explanations. Well done, MoM!

Author's Response: *Is on top of the world* Thanks Ginny, for reviewing and (because I could never tire of looking for different mediums in which to thank you) I'm humungously grateful for your work with me on this story! Looks like you found out it was up before I did ^^

I like your mysterious style of writing.It ties so well into the 6th book!! I'm adding you to my favorite authors!!
Fantastic,

Author's Response: *Blushes* Wow. Thank you so very much - and I really appreciate your telling me that. It can really make the day of one of us small-time authors. Yes, making something inter-twine with pre-known cannon facts can be an interesting level within a story. Also a fun challenging one to include. Again, thanks a trillion for your review!
