| A great start chapter 1 . 7h
I am intrigued. The intro seems to be well written with proper grammar. I look forward to the rest!

Disclaimer: I've read a lot of Eliezer's writings on LessWrong already, I'm therefore more likely to grant this series more mistakes and weaknesses than I normally would. I also read Aaron Swartz's glowing review on his own site, which got me here. I had no idea this existed before, or that Eliezer wrote fiction (apart from explanatory diologues) at all.
That said, Swartz had mentioned that the warning about the first five chapters was accurate and that one should basically just get through those, as they're nice but not as great. I don't see how this is bad, and nobody really meant that it's bad, but if this is just nice in comparison, I immensely look forward to the rest of this and have no trouble with it at all. I consider this (along with "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman" and others) one of the pieces of writing I'd love to have my own hypothetical children grow up with.

wow. You are an exceptional writer. It is very rare for a story, Especially fanfic, to be so well thought-out, detailed, clever, and just brilliantly written. I can't even tell you how much I feel like I've grown as a writer just from reading the dialogue alone in this story, and the way you brought everything pretty much full-circle from first year and even a lot of characters and most plot devices from the entire series, and managed to wrap it all into Harry's first year in increasingly creative and inventive ways was exceptional. I feel improved for having read this. Thank you.

P.P.S. I'm not actually sure if this will end up being the 33,333 comment but I'm trying anyway.

This story is utterly insane. (I like it.)

I saw something somewhere that argued you might as well have a team of seekers (although it might be worth while to have at least ONE defensive player)

Oh it's been a long time since I've belly laughed.
