|Reviews for Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality|
| NarutosBrat chapter 5 . 4/25/2011
That was the most classic scene in Harry Potter humor fiction I've ever read. I'm not sure if your intention is to make this a humor fic, but that's exactly what you're doing.

Harry just threatened/blackmailed dementors... and succeeded...
You are God!
| LukasRodam chapter 4 . 4/25/2011
Remarkably! Excellently written and very entertaining. I love how he uses the actions to back it up without offending others. A pity that it took me so long to start reading this fic.
| Gedusa chapter 45 . 4/25/2011
I cried, obviously. This chapter is unbelievably awesome.
Also, I'm desperate to find that hint mentioned in the author's notes. I'm guessing it's something to do with the Dementor wanting to hunt down Qurriellmort, McGonagall guarding the philosopher's stone or the strange word in Harry's mind.
Great, now I'm convinced that the strange word is the hint and going to have re-read the entire fic up to this point...
| Gedusa chapter 40 . 4/25/2011
"Professor Quirrell was in a contemplative mood that Saturday, and so was Harry, and Mary's Room, it seemed, had not neglected to notice this"
Wait.. Rooms can read minds? Or at least intentions or feelings or something? Sooooo, occulumency barriers aren't effective against rooms?
I don't get why Voldy is angry in this scene...
| Gedusa chapter 43 . 4/25/2011
A couple of things occur to me on this chapter. Firstly, Harry's dark side is the bit of voldemort's soul (this is probably pretty obvious). Secondly, Voldemort might've got as dark as he did by getting demented; after all the symptoms to Harry getting attacked are very similar to what Voldemort is described as being like.
Just my two cents.
| Gedusa chapter 18 . 4/25/2011
Obviously I just have to compliment the fic, it's FANTASTIC! This is my second run-through, it's a LOT easier to understand this time, and I think I'm getting some of the hints! Yay!
I'm also just going to assume that Snape is reading Harry's mind in this chapter, e.g. by knowing the number of electrons in the outer shell of a carbon atom. How dare he cheat!

Oh I'm glad to find this! I neeeded a good laugh! The ULTIMATE reason to homeschool! Flaming Zebras! I know a homesechooled young man like this, and it's a good thing he only had computers!

Best...Harry...Potter ...Story ...Ever!
I actually mean that, I'm at chapter six right now and am thoroughly enjoying your Harry (a Harry who THINKS!). In a fandom where too many stories are carbon copies of each other this tale stands out. I'd write more but I really want to get back to reading chapter seven!

I wonder what's going on these days on the Science of Magic/Bayesian Conspiracy front. Are there any more low-hanging fruit HP could pick?
| Jake chapter 71 . 4/24/2011
I really love this story, please don't abandon it!
| AvatarofDeath13 chapter 11 . 4/24/2011
Alternate Endings of 'Self-Awareness' File #6 deserves it's actual own spin or story!
Seriously, that is FUNNY!

Finally getting around to reviewing this... probably mostly b/c I selfishly want to see more updates. But reading this has been somewhat of a blast. I have to say I haven't minded the most recent chapters (as others apparently have, based on these reviews), but definitely my favorite parts have been the battle scenes, which is like taking all of the good parts of Ender's game w/o so much of the oppression pornography. It's really hard for me to compare it to "traditional" fiction b/c it's the first fan fiction I've ever read, so I won't try to rank it or anything, but I will say, that I'm quite happy I now know what fan fiction is, and keep it up.

I loved the last sentence.
It reminded me of the first creation story in the Bible, you know, God created the world in seven days.
Great story so far, I will continue reading.
