"James Sirius Potter, it is the judgment of the Wizengamot that you have been found guilty. You knowingly, in possession of sound mind and body, used the Cruciatus Curse and the Killing Curse in the intentional torture and murder of one Gregory Goyle the Third."
James Potter was going to Azkaban for the rest of his natural life, and his whole family was in shambles. His wife and child have fled the country, his sister was missing, and his parents were a wreck. However, James knew that he had larger problems: his guilt was coming more and more in question.
Though he knew that James was withholding information about the circumstances of the murder of which he had been found guilty, Harry had secrets of his own; however, even he could not handle this torrent of trouble alone. Can Harry trust his darkest confidences to anyone? Even family?
How will the Potter clan stop the downward spiral into pain and disaster, and can they recover what they've lost?
This fic was nominated for a 2010 Quicksilver Quill Award - Best Next-Generation Story.
What a great book! I call this a book because that is what it is. You took the characters of JKRowling and brought them 35 years into the future. I was totally caught up in the story especially the way you brought Draco and Harry together. These characters are iconic and I enjoyed the way you took them and brought them in and out of crisis. The struggles between Harry and Ginny was well written. It was hard to read but it showed that this is part of real life. I also liked the way you brought in the Deathly Hallows specificllly the Resurrection Stone which every one thought was lost when Harry dropped it before facing Voldermort. The interaction between the Wesley family, the Malfoy family, the Black family and the Potter family as well as Greg Goyle and how they all were affected by the Dark Lord. You did a great job with both the content and the structure of the book. You are a talented writer and I hope you keep writing
I'm so flattered by this review, hehe. You may have inflated my head a bit, to be honest. The thing is that this isn't my best work by any stretch of the imagination in terms of writing quality, but it's a story that I loved enough to slog through my still-sprouting authordom and finish it off. This story started my love affair with writing fanfic. Of course, I do have 70 other fics and poems a year and a half after finishing this story, but I do feel a sense of nostalgia when I think of TVoJP and how it started this whole thing.
Thank you very much for this review. I forget that people still read this fic, and it's nice to know that something far at the bottom of my author page can still bring someone enjoyment.
