Draco Malfoy gets credit for being a bright boy with a great sense of humor here. I always wondered if it were so even in the books- Harry's view of Malfoy is kind of like Snape's view of the Marauder's.

I teach in a school for advanced studies. I believe I understand Minerva's exasperation perfectly.

"(And somewhere in the back of his mind was a small, small note of confusion, a sense of something wrong about that story; and it should have been a part of Harry's art to notice that tiny note, but he was distracted. For it is a sad rule that whenever you are most in need of your art as a rationalist, that is when you are most likely to forget it.)"
There's something very fairytale like about this. Like a modern morality story. I like that.

'The March of Reason went on:' that's really uplifting somehow. And I really don't doubt that Harry would get around that pesky wand problem in pursuit of Science!

No respect. Of course you'd get no respect, if your father was a professor: those are the type of people who think they know everything.

Hey, Mr. Yudkowsky. Just wanted to officially congratulate you on being the number one reviewed HP fic IN THE WORLD EVER. You deserve each and every one.
*waves MoR victory flag like a madwoman*
(Oh, actually, I'm not sure, but I think My Immortal may have had more than that before it got deleted off FFnet. If you're not familiar with My Immortal, it was hailed as the worst fanfiction ever written. Also, the worst anything ever written. It has its own tvtropes page.
I sort of wish it were still up so I could have the pleasure of seeing MoR dethrone it, though.)

This is intense. Intensely intense. Wheels within wheels and all that guff. "Preparing for the next war..." Brilliant.
Also: Congrats on being number one! We deserve it!

edit: "man-shaped living lethifold" is used twice in succession- reword?
It's SO EXCITING to see the plots moving along, especially Harry/Draco! This makes me want to live more rationally.

You... -twitch- Mornelithe Falconsbane? My dear author, am I correct in assuming that I've found a fellow Mercedes Lackey reader?

I don't know what Snape's doing. I feel a little lost. I don't know what's going on.
All I know is that I like it. This is the best mental workout I've had all day, since I spent fifteen minutes talking to two IBM employees about their sexy revision control system.

I love this fanfic for so many reasons... First and foremost, I really appreciate your stated first law of fanfic. I once read an interview with an author where they said you had to hate your characters to make them worth reading, because if you loved them how could you ever keep putting them in such difficulties? Second, I really have enjoyed the discussions of rationality and logic.
Keep it up! I eagerly await the next chapter.

Welcome back! Congratulations on being number one.
Pretty good chapter. The ending is terrific. So is Susan Bones. Who put the trap? So is Draco as well, he's probably the best character you have in the story. And Q's single line is seriously scary.
