A Dangerous Mission by shieldmaiden Rated: MT - Mature Themes starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 0]
Summary: When the Order learns of a unique plot to kidnap Harry Potter, they attempt an equally unique way to turn the situation to their advantage.

Written as a gift for wolfiekins during this years bestmates_xmas gift exchange. The story is canon compliant up through Half Blood Prince, and then presents an Alternate Future, disregarding Deathly Hallows in its entirety.

That was pretty clever.  You got me, and I had to read it again to get all the players straight.  Good job!

I've read your first 2 chapters, and I think you've got a very strong story here.  The slave plot is a stretch, but you make it very believable with the details you've fleshed out.  Harry is very messed up and Draco is a lot less bitter than I'd expect - but all in all I'm very impressed.  Well-written, and I'm looking forward to the next chapters.  Thanks for posting a story that you've completed, but in serial style.  It can be difficult waiting for WIP's, especially ones that never complete.

Author's Response: thanks for reading and commenting :)

I've just read your 1st 10 chapters in a few hours.  You've done a marvelous job with a lot of original ideas.  I think my favorite is how absolutely nasty Hermione is, because it's so very different from her usual fanfic persona (and her canon character, of course).  Ron the ghost is delightful & poignant, Harry is so very tortured & delicious.  I like how you switch the pov's - oh, and when the twin made a crack about Draco drooling, that was so spot on.  I'm glad I finally started your WIP, and I'll look forward to future chapters.

Author's Response: Thanks so much, and I'm so glad that you're enjoying this.  I'll try to be better about getting the chapters posted more regularly, now that Valentine's Day is over.

This is my favorite WIP right now.  You are doing an awesome job.  The "dressing up" of Harry in this chapter was very sexy & the transformation you described was very vivid & appealling.  Can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: I'm so glad that you are enjoying it, and thanks so much for the kind words.

I was so excited to see another chapter up.  I can't wait to see more.  Draco & Harry are incredible in this story, incredibly appealing.  You made my day!

Author's Response: Oh, yay!  That makes me happy!

I am so grateful that you're updating this story.  It's fascinating & I can't wait to find out what happens.  Draco & Harry are terrific characters.  It's so well-written, having the Fat Lady in the opening scene in this chapter, eavesdropping and interrupting, was an exquisite touch.  Keep it up!

Author's Response: Thank you so much.

So excited to see a new chapter.  Draco's admissions and the "child of the heart" - so touching & well done.  I can see we are getting to the climax of the story soon.  I can't wait!

Author's Response: Thanks, love.

That was a very nice trio fic without being graphic.  Great job.

Author's Response: Thank you! I wanted this to have a gentle feel, and smut didn't fit. However, I did write an "outtake" for this called Bedfellows, which is being approved by the mods as we speak, which was specifically about Ron and Harry's first time, and it's smutty. It just felt better as its own piece.

Well-written story, and I particularly liked the snide comments of Blaise Zabini - they really added the outside observer's POV!

Well.  I really didn't want that to end - it was brilliant.  I love the way you started smack in the middle of a story, and hints of the past and of problems to come in the future are showing themselves.  Extremely intriguing - please update soon!  Thanks 

Author's Response: Thank you - I'm so pleased you're enjoying this. The plot involved elements of the past in solving a mystery, and starting at the beginning would have been too tedious - plus it adds to the mystery, somewhat! More soon.

Still a big fan of this story & can't wait to read more.  Powerful Harry is powerfully appealing.  The sentient blood wards are a good original idea. Ginny the gossip was really fun.  Etc.  Looking forward to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Thank you! It's lovely to know that you're still reading and enjoying this.

I thank you for this story, and for the song link.  I listened to it, and then to a tear-jerker great song called "My Young Man" by the same artist.  Wow.
