Genius! I thought Ginny wanted to make Harry love and trust herself , and Harry was not supposed to see himself. And when he did see himself, I thought he would start loving himself like that Narcisse person, or whatever his name was, and I got panicky. But you made him not hate himself, which is genius!

Great little twist - making it seem like Ginny wanted to make Harry love herself, and it turning out to be that it was to make Harry not hate himself.

I just think you ruined the story slightly by making them tell Harry what they had done.


But otherwise, great story

For a minute htere, I thought that Ginny was going to have Harry see her first. I like that he saw himself. It really helped. Good job!

This is really interesting...I was so mad at them at first...like, how shallow could you be, to try adn fix Harry's problems with a love potion? But then the idea of having him see himself...it was actually quite touching that they'd want their friend to love himself...It's still kind of disturbing that they drugged him though. O.o Also, one thing wasn't clear for me - was he actually planning on killing himself? It was left sort of vague. Really interesting stuff.

"Also, one thing wasn't clear for me - was he actually planning on killing himself? It was left sort of vague. Really interesting stuff."

Thanks for the review!

I intentionally left it vague, as it was mostly from Ginny, Ron and Hermione's POV. They were afraid that Harry was thinking of hurting himself because of his morbid interest in the rat poisons. But Harry wasn't seriously contemplating suicide. (Maybe some rat-icide, if he ever catches up to Wormtail.)

Very Clever! I would never have thought about using a love potion on one's self to get over depression. That was great!

Cool story!
U know, u could have a sequel 2 this. The first person Harry saw wann't actually himself, he was looking at a virtual image of himself, not a real one, so the first person he saw would be Ginny. He only felt like he didn't hate himself any more because he thought that the potion made him like himself. Get it? And u can say that they find out that the potion doesn't work on virtual images later on, in the book or something. N eveery1 knows GIn n Hayyr sort of r attracted 2 each other aldready,so the potion would work even better. Cool idea huh? YOu don't have 2 use it.

Oh that was sweet with a great ending and a great message. Love potions are always associated with romantic love--what an interesting twist. You also did a good job with all the characterizations. Hermione and Ron were just right. Lovely.
