So I ended up catching up with the story Spoiler I am really enjoying her relationship with Hagrid, it's both adorable and easily my favorite part of the fic. The whole care of magical creatures focus is pretty interesting and unique. Harry's reluctance to use animal products in potion's is interesting, and does fit with someone whose only friends are animal's. Though I dislike how simply it was resolved, while I have no problem with the idea of potion's being to be modified to to no longer require animal products, but a first year student with less than a month of potions experience under her belt being able to do so is jarring. Though I am curious if she's going to go full-blown Vegan!Harry which is something I have never actually seen before. I feel like her true name should have already come out by now. I mean the original impetus for the change to Riddle came from her getting harassed in her compartment on the Hogwarts express. Did those boy's completely forgot that the Girl-Who-Lived was on the train, and never questioned about the identical copy of her with a different surname? I am having mixed feelings about the relationship with Quirrel. On the one hand he's shown to be charismatic and manipulative, a depiction that is all to rare in this fandom. But then he tells her he's a parselmouth on their first meeting and she never questions him about it or tells anyone. She already knows that it has a dark reputation and she learned from Padma that it's a family trait. On the whole it feels like a stupid decision from a character that won't have any consequences because of plot convenience. On the whole I'm really enjoying this fic I am really interested to see what the author does with the with the various plot threads she has going on. Especially the Nagini subplot which the fic seems to have been building towards the whole time. I would currently rate it at 3.5/4 with the potential to go up or down depending on how the author handle's certain things.This fic is also on Spacebattles, if your in to that sort of thing.
