Author’s Summary: It’s not running away from home if it never felt like one. Harry/Astoria
My Thoughts: Unfortunately, while retrospect caused me to bump Serpent’s Heiress up a tier, the exact opposite is true for Flight of the Forbidden. I honestly really like this fic. I think it’s got some really cool ideas going on, and it’s set in an AU world that I was honestly curious to learn more about. I thought there was a great setup for a compelling Harry/Astoria romance, even if it was basically destined to end tragically in the end from the start. Unfortunately, a good chunk of my enjoyment of this fic came from wondering where it would go next, its abandonment makes it so I will never know the answer to that question. I still like it, I still like the writing style, and I’m still a fan of the dialogue, but…I can’t justify higher than, like, a 7.7/10 or so.
