I love the fact that "angst" is one of the keywords!

Incredible way to look at magic- it would be more disturbing than regular school, as what they teach at Hogwarts is basically how to use your weapon, the wand.

Goodgoodgoodgood. I think that the main problem you outline is one that faces all educaters and crops up in so many places, how do you pass on knowledge safely, if you judge each person individually, you can't teach anywhere near as many, and it reverts to a primitive apprenticeish arrangement, if you make education available to all, then you lose control over its use very quickly. From this, I think, I think comes efforts to teach ethics and reasoning, logic and practicality in schools as well as basic knowledge, to, as cliche as is sounds, produce sound people capable of making the world a better place.

As far as the actual fic, I liked it a lot, though I'm not sure about the time, is it Voldemort's first rise or Grindelwald? Your message in the end, just keep plodding on, is a bit depressing and very faith based, just trust that everything'll come out in the end, but that's fine, I think a lot of the time that's how life works. Good job.

And yet, her very vigilance against all things Slytherin helps to drive them to Voldemort-and she doesn't even know it. Oh, yes, Black and Potter have spontaneity-and an Invisibility Cloak, and a Marauders' Map and a werewolf prefect willing to lie to her for their sake.

But she never worries about her Gryffindors. Not even Peter.

Although by the end she's convinced she understand that any of her students could become Death Eaters-we all know who she'll really pay attention to in the years to come.

Excellent story.
