This story is very interesting. Sad to see Neville turning a blind eye to bigotry.

A lot of people really do be exposing themselves in the reviews, huh?
| RiseOfTheDarkness chapter 5 . 3/21
That ending line made my day, holy shit Neville never stops a chance. Sad but unsurprising to see others still trying to defend the aristocracy, this fandom is weird about things like that

He should have avada-ed her right there where she stood. I think this was probably the most serious political story I've read and I imagine it's deadly accurate too. but he still should have thrown that unforgivable at her for being such a bitch and having no class and having no grace -just as all of the old families accuse her of. it's true. she could get her point across and still have a little bit of decency. cant say I've ever hated Hermione more than I have with this story. excellent writing to cause so much emotion! thank you for sharing it

This was interesting and something I can imagine happening.
Great story, thanks.

This is the best story on the website.

"Why, Neville, you've finally embraced democracy!" poor sod could never win against such a marvellous brain as our Hermione.

This story is deeply frustrating, but I think that just serves to illustrate how people become blinded by politics

Actually a very frustrating story. No resolution, no Harry learning what his parents would have done by reading a family grimoire, no socking her in the face...

This is a truly beautiful piece. I love it. It feels perfect - you have captured the idea of Dumbledore trying to work within the system to promote small changes. It makes good sense that the Golden Trio would advocate for democracy. Honestly, democracy has the potential to work much better in a smaller society, because the barrier to communication is lower.
More than that, I loved how you wrote the piece from Neville's point of view, making him very sympathetic. You gave him the skill and nous to provide a serious foil to Hermione in the Wizengamot, deservedly so.
Thank you for sharing this piece.

What really interests me about this fic, is that if Neville had done more research into other forms of government, he wouldn't have been so willing to defend the Wizengamot. At its core, the Wizengamot is an aristocracy, so power is passed down through lineage, and influence and wealth are traded among a selection of families. What Neville described in his first anti-democracy speech sounded far closer to a geniocracy or noocracy, where right to rule is determined by education, intelligence, and wisdom. Still elitist, but, theoretically, not as corrupt.

Dude making hermione sound like hitler bruh
| Palletking2001 chapter 5 . 7/11/2022
Neville here is really a traitor. He should be punished more... such as his parents or... shaming him hard
| Guest chapter 5 . 6/21/2022
OMG! I LOVE a BAMF Hermione!
Brilliant story thank you ️

Would you blame me if I said the final line by Hermione is so OP it feels like it belongs in a crack fic?
