This has nothing to do with your (excellent) story, but your author's note about J.J. Abrams actually made me cringe. I cite the incoherent dumpster fire that was Episode 9 as evidence that J.J. "Mystery Box" Abrams was not the right man for the job, and, well, I'm afraid I have to disagree with you on Episode 7. The Force Awakens is, at least by itself, a perfectly adequate and inoffensive popcorn flick. But when viewed in context with the rest of the films, it is more often than not a shot-for-shot remake of A New Hope, and it not only undoes the happy ending of Episode 6, but also completely fails, as a first act, to set up anything at all for Episodes 8 or 9 to build on. The Sequel Trilogy floundered because Disney insisted on making it up as they went, and hiring a one-trick charlatan when they should have hired an actual writer.

I'm sorry, but that line is Molly's to deliver. I am totally riveted by your writing and can't wait to read the 3rd "book"!

I find the moralizing over killing enemy combatants while in a full blown war to be patronizing.
At this rate they are going to lose, and they'll deserve it.
"Kill the enemy" Should not be this hard to figure out.

Awesome way to end the story. I’m looking forward to reading the sequel.

Somebody really needs to assassinate the child-torturing sadist already.

very nice last year's! I really liked how everything came together and the battle was very nice

Why can't Dobby transport Hermione to and from Grimmauld Place? That way no one would see her coming or going.

It's not right to blame Hermione for Dumbledore's death or what happened to Bill. They might just be upset and not thinking clearly, but it also seems like what Hermione feared - they are assuming she'll do everything perfectly and getting mad when she isn't a perfect superhero. Cutting off the ring made sense, and neither Bill nor Harry thought of calling for Dobby either. Apparating to the front of the store might have been stupid, but I don't see how that makes her to blame for what happened to Fred.

It's an excellent story, but I just have a micro rant... Why is EVERYONE in the HPVerse obsessed with Merlin's bollocks?!

Hello! I'm not sure if you're still active but I wanted to point out something to do with the Polish text used in this chapter, as a native speaker. The phrase you use translates to 'all Jews can exit/leave' instead of 'may come forth'. This may still fit the situation in the paragraph, and most people wouldn't know anyway, but in case you want help adjusting the phrasing pm me

Just as I did when I first encountered "The Arithmancer," I set this story aside for a while when I found out about it, saving it for the right time. Then I started reading it - - and got interrupted by Real Life and never came back to your story for years. This did, however, have the bonus feature that the story was already done by the time I recently started reading it again.
What did I discover? "Lady Archimedes" was as good as I expected - - and my expectations were very high after reading "The Arithmancer." While I would have enjoyed even more mathematics in this go-round than it already had, I was amused by the *side-effects* of the mathematics, including things like Hermione using different languages to get the correct syllable count, the Lovecraftian references, and the intriguing possibilities for the algebraic topology of the soul.
Taken together, I feel that "The Arithmancer" and "Lady Archimedes" constitute a major work of fanfiction, right up there with RobSt's "Harry Crow" or Diane Castle's mega-crossover masterpiece "The Secret Return of Alex Mack" over on Twisting the Hellmouth. If I ever manage to actually write and post any fanfiction of my own, your work will be one of the reasons why.
So, thank you very much for writing this. I would give you a 16-cell (also known as a hexadecachoron) in exchange, but I cannot get it to lie flat enough to fit in this review box.
Yours in mathematics,

This was amazing. I loved every chapter and all 1 million words of it!
