What a marvelous concept! This first chapter is chock full of possibilities and promise. I like it :-) Metamorph/Undercover Harry...and I cannot wait to see who he's hunting. It's a safe bet that it won't be as uncomplicated as good guy captures bad :-) I can already tell. Thanks ! Samayel

Author's Response: Yeah, I like to think this one is a little dark, and a little complicated.  But aren't the best men usually?

MMM! I like the relationship between the title and the style of writing. First a bit of the now, then a bit of the then in each chapter. Artfully done I might add. Reviewers must be stingy here to have left this unreviewed. For just two chapters, I've been thoroughly hooked, and I'll be making this a favorite so I can keep up with updates as they come. Once again...very well done! Peace, Samayel

Author's Response: Thank you.  Having just read Love Potion#9, I feel as if I'm getting props from an expert.  (Bows)

Campy hustler Harry is adorable :-) It already looks like whatever happened back then went way beyond what Draco might have originally planned. There's something that just screams unplanned disaster and cover-up here. WOnderful! Thanks, Samayel

Author's Response: I like this little hustler, too.  He reminds me of so many gay kids I knew when I was younger; vulnerable, covering it up with bravado.  He's sort of a tribute to them.

Wow! I grossly underestimated the nature of what Harry went through. I expected an assassination attempt via seduction, or something less...strangely horrifying. So many little details that hint at deeper meanings. I shall enjoy watching this unfold :-) Thank you, Samayel

Author's Response: I hope you find, as you go along, that the nature of the attack was not gratuitous.  I try not to write violence for violences sake.

Now we move closer and closer to the endgame, where the then meets the now :-) What a twisted bastard our Draco is here! Poly juice for his victims so he can have his eternal fantasy again and again, and all it costs is the price of rentboys! Thats thoroughly foul! (and a great plot!!!) Peace, Samayel

Author's Response: I haven't been very kind to Draco in this one, I'm afraid.  I'll have to improve on that in the future.  He's just such a lovely squicky villian.

ARgh! How ruthlessly my weaknesses are exploited...mmmmgothy-Harry and Brad Pitt lookalike Harry in the same story. I'm all atingle! Love poor Grimes' reaction to his Master's decadence, and Harry is quite the tease, isn't he? Thank you for another timely and thoroughly enjoyable chapter! Peace, Samayel 

Author's Response: My weaknesses too, darling.  And I put old Brad in for bit of levity - like your story, which I am quite thoroughly hooked on, it gets a bit grim.  And I felt really sorry for Grimes', too.  Personally, I think people who tease are a bit cruel; in this instance, I felt like Harry wanted Malfoy a  off balance, and preoccupied.

Bloody magnificent, and worth every minute of the wait :-) My anticipation wasn't disappointed. You know, I don'y usually read H/R or Trio fics, but this was done well and wonderfully, right to the last. Thanks for bringing this to us all :-)

Author's Response: I don't usually read H/R or Trio fics either, but this one sort of had a mind of it's own.

Bravo. And the finale is en route! Its still possible that something better than this could happen...and that hardly seems possible. I bow :-) Lurve, Samayel 

Author's Response: Thank you.  Being an enormous fan of your work, as well, the compliments are deeply appreciated.

The plot keeps pacing restlessly forward, soon to climax we hope :-) I have the terrible suspicion that Harry will have more than just a faint glimpse into Draco real opinion of Harry Potter before its all done. This isn't gonna be pretty ! Love love it loveit, had to borrow a computer to read the last two chappies, but well worth the wait !! Peace, Samayel

Author's Response: I was getting worried about You!  Glad your back, hope your computer problems are behind you.  And thank you.  And that's a pretty good guess.

Argh!!!! It's all coming together here! Tension through the roof! Trenton harry is in deep trouble, even if the cavalry knows whats going on. I'm glad I was offline for awhile, I would have been on pins and needles for weeks if I'd read this when it first came out! We're closing in on the finale...I can just feel it...such elegant tension :-) I'll be waiting and watching! S.

Author's Response: "Elegant tension".  What a lovely description for what I tried to convey!  As ever, you honor me.

Whew! A narrow escape for Harry, but out of the frying pan and into the fire eh? The cavalry is finally on its way...but what final twists remain before the endgame? What lurks in the ugliest recesses of Malfoy's mind...or what's left of it. Harry has something left to learn...or so we'll see :-) Thank you again!

Author's Response: Yes, but he's not in the clear yet.  And Malfoy is seriously twisted, so the games get nasty.  Revelations are forth coming!  And thank you.  It's been a fun ride for me, having you review so kindly.

Now that is some hi quality class A Dark!PWP that actually has a plot !!!Love Harry in this, brooding and powerful, amoral and restlessly in search of something to make him feel alive, which, in your capable hands, Draco did quite well :-) Thanks for a lovely read!

'I'll be your mirror...reflect what you are...' I suspect someone else love the Velvet Underground as much as I do :-) Peace, lovely story, Samayel



Author's Response:

I ADORE the Underground!  Bwahhaa, now I need to go double-check.  I might have forgot to add that in my author notes when I was uploading the story.  ;)

 

Thanks so much!

LOL! Wonderful! I am very glad you approve. This little series adds the NC17 aspect to the story, and shows some different dynamics between their personalities along the way ;-) I hope you enjoy the rest! Love, Sam
