Darkstar


So this fic had me HOOKED from the beginning. The Darkstar project sounds so ominous.. And the descriptions of what Harry was going through during the training phase was intense.

It’s a great fic, but it’s pretty dark. I definitely enjoyed reading it, but there were a lot of things that disturbed me — of course, it was probably meant to be disturbing, so yeah, haha.

I think the most disturbing part of the fic was when he was put in isolation thing and they were forcing him to kill. I liked that he resisted, but it was kind of upsetting when he did end up doing it. The idea of manipulating some organization training and molding people into just following orders, especially to kill, without questioning it just rubs me the wrong way. I was very disappointed when Harry did end up doing it…

Also, the debriefing thing kind of sucks too.. Losing all of your past just seems kind of lame. I mean, all those people are just signing on to be, like, mindless drones or “perfect soldiers” or whatever. (Gundam Wing reference! XD Not just because I love GW, but also because this fic kind of reminds me of old GW fics I read a long time ago.)

I liked the bonding spell, and how Harry decides to keep it, this one link to the past and the ability to love, which is what Harry does and it’s perfect. And I honestly was expecting an unhappy ending, but I was pleasantly surprised. =)

Overall, great story, but kind of dark. It’s not what I typical like to read, but it’s good to have some from time to time.
