Dumbledore had said he kept failing at killing voldemort cause of the prophecy, so I look forward to watching this assassin fail too
Dark-Prince-of-Clowns chapter 2 . 1/13
Small fyi, because you seem to honestly belice one must be intentionally evil to destroy people's lives...

Dumbledore is a person with GOOD intentions.

Sure, he's a quixotic moron who tries to both be a war general AND a pacefist at the same time. His high morals is guaranteed to get his own people killed.

He also tries to gain redemption for his own youthful follies, especially for the death of his sister. The regret is gnawing on him every day. (And is the reason he put on the cursed ring like an idiot.)

He also refuse to kill an innocent child (or anyone else), so instead he manipulates Harry into committing suicide.

Which is FAR cruler when you REALLY think about it -but he does it because he can't stand the thought of killing anyone.

Harry will be protected if he lives with his relatives, even if they're shitholes. So he NEEDS to believe that while they may not be nice, they won't hurt him or abuse him. So he avoids checking, so he can believe they do love him.

He tries to repay the shit Harry is going though by refusing to tell him about all the bad shit he SHOULD know, in an attempt to let Harry have a childhood -which leads to Sirius dying, amongst other things.

In short; dumbledore is the epitome of the saying "the road to hell is paved with good intentions."

And I know I use this example far too much for a man who honestly IS good...moralistically speaking...

But even Hitler honestly believed himself to be a good man. Who did the good and right thing and helped people... and he DID. He saved Germany from the aftermat of WW1

The fact that he blamed all the nations problems on the jews, and the whole thing spiraled into a shitfeat the world is still complaining about (while ignoring things like genocide in africa, cuz, who cares about africa, right?) is something else. And the one thing that DO make Hitler genuinely fall under the "Evil" cathegory, while dumbledore don't.

I would need a whole essay or book to properly psychoanalyze dumbledore, but there you have some of the highlights.

Your story itself is brillian. And yes, dumbledore here is hillarious... but SO OOC (out of character)

If you want to write a realistic Villain, find out what makes him human, WHY he does what he does, and you will have a less laughable result.

And writing a realistic dumbledore is better done writing him as someone who is highly moral, driven by grief and fear of becoming like his old bff Grindewald, that tries to stop a horrible monster of a man in a war-and BECAUSE of his morals, he fails miserably.

Because you cannot fight a war with stun-guns and attempts to appeal to your enemy's better nature.

Imagine america fighting Taliban terrorists with only non-lethal weapons, and if a terrorist promised he would change, they let him go.

Imagine if Gandi was put in charge of the army to fight them.

Which side would suffer the most losses?

THAT is effectivly what dumbledore does.

The man has no business fighting a war.


I apologise if I sound harsh, but dumbledore's very existence pisses me off. Quixotic idiots usually do.

Your story IS a good story tho. Just to have that said.

It's just very OOC on certain people. Mainly dumbledore.

Hello, I read I believe to the second chapter. A trigger warning for teacher predation and child molestation would be appreciated. I didn’t quite see it adding any depth to the story and came off like a way to justify writing about it. It made me uncomfortable and not because You wrote about Snape doing it, but because it didn’t make Snape out to be a monster due to the light language used (e.g., diddle). It was almost framed as light comic relief and not what child molestation truly is.

Excellent story. Just excellent!

I remember reading this story around the time you first posted it and couldn't remember for the life of me what this was named. I enjoyed back then, and having found it again, I enjoyed it even more on my second read.

Lots of people try their hand at the trope of Harry going to another magical school, but this one was GREAT! Thanks for sharing and writing.
Jack T. Writer chapter 4 . 9/7/2022
Yes! This is a story that proofes that Harry Potter going to another school doesn't need to be a bad story.
The best thing was that while Harry is proficient in fighting he didn't need to fight against Voldemort once.
I think that Harry fullfilled the Prophecy already at the age of one.
The one to vanquish the Dark Lord. It was never said to kill, it was just interpreted into it... Or Rowling said it to be, but I prefer the idea that Harry decided to defeat Voldemort to stop him and not because he believed a Prophecy told him to.
What a great story, thanks!

Scroil couldn't afford good quality already passed/Masters of their fields with experience in certain subjects? For supposedly brilliant school they run on lectures by not yet eligible teachers, giving lectures. Where is supervision?
Bronze chapter 1 . 8/17/2022
This isn't the first time I've read that the stone was a fake! I read one where Good Ole Fumblemort got the minor gem thinking it was the real deal. Only it turns out it's a fake. The real stone looks like one you could pick up along the side of almost any road. Because of that the Flemals leave it sitting on the kitchen table in plain view. I loved that idea! What better way to hide it?!
