“Knock me up if anyone tries to wake me.” HARRYYYY NOOOOOOOOOOOOO, DO YOU KNOW WHAT GETTING KNOCKED MEEANNNNSSSS?! OMG

I like your choice of ending! Harry wanted to get them thinking, and is no lover of public attention. This puts it squarely in the people's hands - as he may be anyone, so anyone may question wizarding behaviors that are unfair at their base. Well done!

Addition: I just went on your profile to see if you had any other Harry Potter fanfictions and read that Frau has since passed away. I am very sorry for my indiscretion and offer my sincerest condolences! May she rest in peace.

I‘ve come across this fic quite a few months ago and reread it recently when I decided to leave a review on every single one of my all time favourites and this fanfiction is on that list!
I love the idea of an intelligent and eloquent Harry Potter, mostly because (as you pointed out several times) his parents were described as highly intelligent in the books and it didn‘t feel logical for Harry to be such a lazy person with only real talent for quidditch and defense of the dark arts and getting in trouble.
I enjoyed your self confident Harry who speaks up for himself and takes responsibility, leading the Wizarding World into a new age - if only under an alias. The way Harry‘s articles were written seems ‚legit‘ - what I mean is that they do in fact sound like newspaper articles and columns.
I laughed quite loudly when Dobby caught Rita, especially when he went to show his achievement of and decided to keep the blasted woman as a pet! Suits her right, that horrible woman.
I‘m also a huge fan of the very subtle Molly and Dumbledore bashing. I hate when Dumbledore‘s manipulations are not subtle but very clear and incredibly unrealistic. You however managed to make it very subtle without discrediting Dumbledore too much towards the end of your story. Having him have mental health issues makes sense, especially now knowing his background story with Ariana and Grindelwald, he must have had quite a lot of things to live with and quite some guilt and that can certainly drive a person crazy. Adding your reason for his issues, it‘s honestly quite marvelous he managed to stay ‚sane‘ that long ;)
I wish however that there would have been some closure with an epilogue of sorts that showed what happened to the magical world after they got rid of Riddle and his Death Eaters, how the Ministry was affected and in which ways they changed their policies and maybe followed Oliver Twist‘s advice on a few things. I also found it a little weird that Hermione as the stereotypical bookworm didn‘t recognize Oliver Twist. She sure must have read Dickens but since you are the authors...
In conclusion, I love this story dearly and revisit it regularly to read it because it is an incredible story with an amazing idea and on point characterizations! I also hope that Frau got better (even though the story has already been finished for about 8 years at this point but I know that dealing with mental health issues takes a lot of time and patience) and I wish you both the best!

This was brilliant, echoed many of my problems with the wizarding world, and was a thoroughly enjoyable read

"Anything you want to, do it! Want to change the world? There's nothing... to it." God I love that movie, and that song. Gene Wilder is a treasure

Ah, yes, the inheritance rituals. Wonder how they have gone...

STOP THE PRESSEES!
And someone get a priority alpha message to Lord Potter that in all his dealings after claiming his emancipation there was a "Lord Harry" in attendance.

You know,... all this meticulous switching to meet his dudes could be migated by slipping Harry a time-turner.
