| Moral Conundrum chapter 11 . 7/1
A great story, ruined at the last moment by "She-Who-Can-Do-No-Wrong" McGonagall. With all the hypocrisy of her own, and her complete failure to help or protect Harry throughout the entirety of his time at Hogwarts, I am infuriated how in every story I read, if she isn't a main villain, McGonagall is immune to any criticism or blame. And even if a writer has Harry stand up to Voldemort, Snape and Dumbledore, they have him cower in pathetic impotence the moment McGonagall glares at him. I highly suggest a re-write of this last chapter.

Enjoying the story but why did you switch tenses at one point? "Von Clausewitz lead him to" - you're writing in the past tense but right there you switched to present tense with lead instead of led. I'm wondering if it's a glitch in FFN because the majority of stories I read seem to have the same problem. They almost always use lead instead of led like they should. It's quite strange.

Because it's not the Night Bus, you doofus, it's the Knight Bus! That's why the name doesn't change. Why would it? The name has nothing to do with the time of day.

Your stuff is excellent, I thoroughly enjoyed the entire read. Thank you for writing it.
Harry never had to hunt for the horcruxes - love it. Remus and Sirius being *that awesomely helpful* - love it. Harry never actually hearing the prophecy in its entirety, but figuring out *just enough* that he makes that interpretation? ADORATION!
Also, the essay competition is inspired.
And thank you for the fic rec. I'll go check that out next.
Again, thank you for writing!

What about Madeye "totally-not-Crouch-Jr." Moody's, "you could all get your wands out and point them at me and say the words, and I doubt I'd get so much as a nosebleed."? Harry is a ludicrous magical powerhouse, but being able to spam "Bet" is something else, I would say.
On another note, I would have loved reading about the natural consequences of interfering with Goblin Gold falling upon the Dursleys. the lack of closure makes it seem a tad like they got rewarded for subhuman behaviour.
I'm gonna have to do some real thinking about Dumbes' being the leader of the "light" (communal betterment, greater good) so very literally. Delicious plot-point, that.

Okay it's different and quite good, but there are mistakes.
-calling this a romance when it's not.
-Okay other fanfic do it to, but it's such a quick turnaround for harry in behavior.
-Really rewarding the dursleys letting them get away unpunished? couple other things weird though.
-Right.. harry doesn't come to the burrow is behavior for them the not be friends anymore things don't add up here, more so if molly wants ginny with harry and this doesn't stop ginny suddenly from her crush for him.
-Ron's is the only information bron for harry at hogwarts, without he nows nothing what a load of bull. He has hermione and others.
-quite simple to be rid of voldy, but also dumbles creative but lacks so much.

That one line made me laugh out loud, that one line in the end.
"We have a Potter, and we're not afraid to use her." HAHAHAHAHA! That made my evening. Thanks for that. :)
