This is an incredibly interesting story. It's also one of my favorite Dark Lord Harry pieces. There's just something about a powerful, intelligent, and ruthless Harry who just wants things run with competence and meritocracy.

Read this story for the umpteenth time and love it just as much as the first time. Thank you for sharing your talent and for creating a Harry that is dark, devious, and has the best of magical Britain/World at heart (as long as it fits his vision). You made me like this dark Harry, just like his 'people'. Well done.

This was definitely an interesting piece. Not my favorite Dark Lord Harry story, since it really just showed highlights and that isn't my preferred style. However I did think you did well with this. I liked his motivation and how he went about achieving his goals.

Damn! This is a wothy dark lord, a real man amoung men hidden in the dark... :D

Harry was the perfect Dark lord. A dark is by definition one who goes against the current wizarding politics. Harry did just that very successfully.

The evilest Dark Lord in history? Not really. Not particularly nice, sure. But what Harry has been doing is more like a public service. In essence, he didn't do that much more than orchestrate revolutions in multiple countries. That included some necessary evils, yes, but most of that wasn't very self-serving, nor unnecessarily cruel or aimed at some perfectly innocent minority that could be conveniently blamed for everything going wrong.

Damn, This was real dark lord, a hidden leader controling everything behind the scenes... :D

First, I think dividing this in to multiple chapters (just the formatting) would’ve made it more readable. Second, the six year old killing people, perfect wandless magic, ect? No. This is a completely different character and he’s extremely over powered.

I'd add in both Hermione and Fleur getting a piece of his action every few years.
Harry wasn't really dark. He wasn't malicious or evil. He was practical and pragmatic.
Are his children immortal, too?

I love the Harry Potter fandom, but the writers love to make Harry be a pussy to his relatives/adversaries/enemies, even when he has the power to fix it, stop bullying, bigotry and magical stupidity... So I periodically go back and re-read this fanfic where Harry just uses what he's given. Use it correctly. Uses it for a comfortable life, both for himself and for other people. This Harry has ambition, and that's great, because it's another trait that makes this fanfic stand out in a faceless mass.
Rereading this fanfic, you seem to be freed from the stupidity, naivety and inertia of the protagonist in other works of the fandom.
Many thanks to the author, you wrote a short but very logical and good story!

This was satisfying. I don't see the evil, though. Dark, yes; evil, no.

This was a pretty good read, if a bit contrived at times. Good job!
