harry ran back from the entrance of the 2nd floor to the 3rd floor corridor, yet before he arives 6 other 1st years are there and yet they still made the connection of harry and flint being out at the same time? (slytherin and hufflepuff dungeons)(gryfindor and ravenclaw 7th floor)

funny how dumbledore acts because he doesnt want to make the same mistake as with tom, and by doing so does exacly that.
i can burn your closet so you do what i say, i can wipe your memories so you do what i say. i am more powerfull so you will listen, no wonder they think power is everything

Bene Factum! Excellent story, well written, quite a different track from the normal plots. It is hard to believe that you are not a native English speaker.

What an unusual and interesting story... The only question I have now is how tossing Voldemort's soul fragment inside the Gorgoneion would help revive Athena. But maybe you will be explaining that in your sequel. Anyway, great job!

Hope Harry eventually points out that the only reason Lilith got hit was because she invaded his mind and then tried to blow it off and try harder. She got what she deserved and it didn't go too far. He has nothing to apologize for.

I remember the the chapter "The Goddess" where Lilith is narrated as being a full veela, but her father is human, isn't he? Veela are mythological creatures of Scandinavia, they are all female. If at the very least their female children were not also fully veela, they'd have been extinct in the first few generations.

I'm shocked he didn't react the instant she pointed a wand at him. I would have in his shoes. I'm also shocked she was stupid enough to point a wand at him after what just happened, or to do so at all without his permission. That's a good way to get yourself killed by someone who sees the wand as a threat to his life.

Dumbledore is definitely getting too old. It never even occurred to him that Harry's fights were very clearly provoked by the dumbasses. Just because they lost the fights does not mean they were the victims. Besides that, letting children fight it out among themselves (only stepping in if someone is a risk of serious injury) usually resolves their issues and those problems do not come up again. When the adults intervene and break up the fights or stop a fight in the first place, their resentment festers and they just keep going at each other indefinitely. Often their harassment gets worse and worse over time.
Dumbles is reminding me of Batman in this fic. Seeing anyone strong and not under his tight control as a growing threat, standing up for the villains and basically telling the victims to suck it up, trying to collect a young child as his ward to train to replace him, etc.

What the Minister said is true but also does not matter. There is still no legal right to interfere in Hogwarts anyway. It doesn't matter if someone was killed or not. Claiming it is a moral matter has no impact on the law whatsoever. Once the law is not enforced due to believing something else supersedes it (unless related to survival or freedom), then there is nothing keeping that civilization together. For example, saying "I can interfere with Hogwarts because a student was killed there" and then everyone following through means that it has become accepted that the government (or possibly anyone at all) can say "fuck the law" whenever they believe they are on a moral warpath.
Besides that, Hogwarts predates the Ministry of Magic by centuries. They wouldn't have just gone in and said "we now claim authority over you" especially since they were all practically raised (indoctrinated) there. No way. Besides, no legal authority means no legal authority. Changing the law when you want to do something (especially in a knee-jerk reaction) is morally wrong and so it undermining the entire basis of changing the law in the first place (claiming moral rightness).
Imagine if that happened in the US. Someone was killed in a tragic accident in the White House and Congress decided to impeach the President. Ignoring that he must be convicted of a felony for that to even be legally possible (not merely a crime, a federal crime i.e. felony and BTW no law forbids collusion in case you were wondering, it's not illegal in any way) that would be basically what is happening to Dumbledore. Someone died and so the government removed him and their response to him pointing out that is illegal was basically "fuck the law, we're looking good for the press".
You replaced Fudge to have someone who does not act like that, but you're OC replacement for him acts like Fudge with a backbone. Which is a bad combination, by the way. Now he's doing stupid things like Fudge did to look good for the public (dressing it up as moral rightness when it's really just a knee-jerk reaction for public popularity) but has the spine to not bend when pressured to not do stupid things. Unlike Fudge who could at least be pressured to sometimes do something smart. What's even worse is that this OC is competent at doing those stupid things. This makes the problems he causes even worse than those Fudge did.
Now, I have little (only a little) doubt that everything will turn out okay anyway. You wouldn't have made him if you were willing to actually have the realistic damages of his actions occur. Otherwise you'd have just kept Fudge and made him a little more competent and definitely braver.

Good Big Damn Hero moment! Why faint? He's done similarly impressive stuff with no effort before. Spammed it even.

You've done a good job of naming your chapters after what happens in the chapter. This time you did not. The troll was not mentioned until literally the very last line of the chapter.

Did not really see that coming! How touching, too.

Well damn, that was a thing.
