| NotHumorless chapter 17 . 12/15
I just want to say that the bit with Harry goading Malfoy about his relationship with Crabbe and Goyle, including calling him a "poofter", was hilarious, and I shouldn't be as surprised as I am that some people got so offended they wrote reviews for the sole purpose of expressing how they now suspect you of being homophobic and they're no longer going to enjoy or follow this story because it's "morally reprehensible". This kind of thing really irritates me because the ideological goal of such humorless snowflakes is to censor the world and crush all nonbelievers as heretics By Any Means Necessary, so let me point out a few facts that should be easy to understand for everyone who isn't insane:
Draco taking offense to the word means HE'S the homophobic one, and Harry using the word means he thought that Draco thought it was bad, not that Harry (and, by extension, the author) thinks it's bad. There's a very significant difference between using “bad” words and actually being a bigot or engaging in discrimination (or ethnic cleansing), but recognizing that would take a level of nuance inaccessible to people who falsely equate words with actions. To paraphrase George Carlin: Words are neutral, it's intent that matters. Harry's intent was to upset Draco and take his focus off of taunting Ginny, not be prejudiced against homosexuals, and nobody in the story other than Draco took offense. [Contrast this with a few minutes later, when Lucius used the term “mudblood” with the clear intent of expressing bigotry (which he has a known history of acting on as a Death Eater), and the difference is obvious. Even more importantly, look at earlier in the chapter when Harry sarcastically referred to their group as “blood-traitors”, which is actually a good way to defang the term so it doesn’t hold any power over them when used with ill intent by blood supremacists. He defended his intent since Hermione was understandably startled, and nobody took offense. Oh, and to preempt anyone who dismisses this by saying blood bigotry is a fictional construct as opposed to homophobia, (1) the ENTIRE STORY is a fictional construct; (2) several of the condemning reviewers cited Harry's opposition to blood bigotry as proof of hypocrisy which, as I've shown, it's not; and (3) set aside everything in brackets, which is focused on blood bigotry, and my analysis is still correct. I included those examples to both directly rebut the reviewers who included them in their condemnation and to illustrate the differences in intent behind "bad" words in the story itself, but they are by no means a necessary component of my argument]. The author making Harry "feel bad about and learn from” something that wasn't prejudiced and caused no offense to anyone not an enemy in the story (and not a hypersensitive emotional child in the audience) would be nothing other than political correctness nonsense messing up a good plot.
I considered using my profile for this reality check, but I'm not interested in having a digital hate mob after me. The point of this review was to add some needed ideological counterweight and let the author and others know that there are still people out there who have a sense of humor and don't buy into the SJW idiocy being promulgated by other reviewers.

It saddens me to think that such a labor of love will be left unfinished. I have questions that will never be answered, theories that will never be tested. It always leaves a feeling of emptiness when I reach the point where the story ends, but is not finished.

This is literally everything I love in a story. I don’t know if your planning on continuing, but just what I’ve read had me reading all night (literally) thank you so much for spending the time on writing what is probably one of my favorite stories of all time.

I binge-read the 42 chapters you have in under a week. Took up a lot of my time to do homework but it was so worth it

I usually prefer to read the stories that have Harry and Hermione getting together, but I have been thoroughly captivated by your story. Beautifully written with compelling moments of intensity and dashes of fun humor. I am not sure if you still have time to read your reviews, but thank you so much for sharing your story with us.
