I've always been intrigued by the theory of parallel universes, and I really like your take on it. This is a quiet bittersweet gem.

I really like this story. I like seeing this alternate universe through Harry's eyes, his longing for that life and realization that he can't stay. I like seeing your view of how his life would have been, how carefree and confident he'd have been. And I love the idea of him going back with the mirror to communicate with Sirius. This would have been an excellent multi-chapter story, as you touched on some things that would have been fun to have fleshed out more -- the AU Harry's siblings, the interactions with his schoolmates and friends, Dumbledore's reaction to his story. And, just to offer some constructive criticism, you glossed over several things too quickly, such as his explanations and discoveries, and how his counterpart explained his appearance to his schoolmates. Wouldn't Hermione have been more curious about his life and asking more questions, regardless of her different personality? Weren't his classmates more curious and appalled by his life? Where was Dumbledore during all of this? Things like that. But otherwise, I enjoyed it!
I'm really glad you liked the story. I did write a sequel, which I'll be posting here when RL cooperates, but it's more from the view of this universe than what was happening in the old one. Thanks for your review!
