| grao chapter 9 . 3/10
Okay, this just got a bit too much for me.
This segment has the exact same problem that all the Betrayed!Harry fics have: the protagonist, upon learning that he was betrayed, goes on a bloody rampage, killing everyone without regard to their motivations or circumstances. That's why we use courts and law enforcement - they provide a framework of basic lawfulness and decency (well, in democratic countries and yes, there are miscarriages and tampering even there...)
My main point is that anyone who takes the law into their own hands and suddenly decide who shall live and who shall die becomes at best a vigilante, at worst a mass murderer. Your James is sliding towards the latter.
Family first? Nah, I could find dozens of reasons for not supporting family blindly. What will James do when one of his sons later breaks some law? 'Eliminate' the witnesses? Bribe a court? What if one of his sons becomes a bully? Just how many people will have their lives destroyed because James isn't content?
The way James deals with Lily is pretty revealing: he practically tortures her to death for what? Being ambitious? How does James have the moral high ground? The only way for Lily to achieve her goals is to marry someone she doesn't love, but James is just as much part of the society that makes this necessary. The wizarding world betrays Lily: perfectly okay. Lily (in response) betrays her husband: death! Death!
Nah. Grow up.

Funny history of how Voldemort rose to power. Too bad it was lost in the free love colony. Eh I understand why they did it I just really don't care. Then again most of the world sort of operates that way anyway. So many people having random sex and so many unclaimed orphans, marriages poping up left and right and ending just as quickly. I try not to think about the sad state of the world.

Never chain your enemy. For they will have nothing to do but plot ways to make you suffer. And they will be increasingly more creative and thorough.

I can imagine the interviews with the cast.
"Yeah they had us go to this empty warehouse where we acted out a script in front of a blue screen and two camera dudes. Then they left. That's all we ever saw of the filmmaking.
These Dog Star dudes really knows how to make killer fantasy films. Those special effects are unbelievably amazing. Best $200,000(random number) I've ever made."
