|Reviews for Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality|
| Zak McKracken chapter 2 . 2/6/2011
OK, so Harry struggles with the concept of magic quite a bit, but his father has nothing to say aexcept to laugh at his boy? About stuff that he has probably not said for the first time? Hmm... I'd expected some more about how he deals with the shock.
Still fun to read though, please do go on :)
I like Harry's behaviour here, just wish his father was similarly well described.

There's exactly one thing I'd like to be different here: The change from present to past tense after the fourth paragraph. The text goes from sounding like a TV script to sounding like a novel there. I like the novel better :)
All else: coool! I'm not a fan of Harry Potter actually, but this is quite the interesting story you have there, and I like it.

just finished reading this story... It is really refreshening... There are many new ideas and your references to ideas of other FFs to bash them are quite funny... Please continue writing

It took me about
a month to catch up; now I
have homework to do.
I'm hoping I'm the first person to write a review in Haiku form, but I'm not about to go through an archive of 11,000 reviews to confirm. In any event, I have decided that all my reviews will be like this from now on.
I'm really terrible at writing Haikus.
I just thought you should know in advance.

Wheee hurray yay-OOF! Who left this brick wall out here? *scrabbles around* Dammit, it's the end of the updates. KHAN!

"If he was going to descend into this madness, he was going to do it with style."
That was one of the best lines I've ever read.
I've never read a fic like this one, before. I'm looking forward to continuing it.

I don't know whether this should be in a review.
I have read many stories recently, some of them are:
Backward With Purpose (all parts);
Battle of Souls;
The Boy Who Died;
all three stories of AndrewsQuill;
Lord of Caer Azkaban (too powerful Harry);
Children of Prophecies.
Looking forward to your writing. My head is spinning from too many too different plots.
I have also read about Atlantis and Chronos, don't remember the name of the story.
And I have strong dislike for stories where Snape is turned into scapegoat, even if he "deserves" it; the same goes for stories where Dumbledore is pictured as weak and/or incompetent. That's one point where Backward with Purpose portrayed Blackhart very well.

*%&! it, Yudkowsky! Do you think you have a life or something? Will you please, please, please, get back to work on MOR and post something! Trivial projects like creating a friendly AI can wait.
I want more!

This fic is legendary. And leading me to Less Wrong and the sequences... I can't thank you enough. My brain hasn't been the same since.

Professor McGonagall isn't going to be Hermione's Old Wizard[tm] is she?

Powerfully written; my compliments. The words seem inadequate when punctuated by a mere period, however exclamation points somehow lessen their gravity.

Oh, I misunderstood. I read the Published date as referring to individual chapters, such that I assumed chapter 69 had been written almost a year ago and Updated last week with a typo correction or the like. I therefore assumed that the lack of a Next button meant that this was the end of the story, and thought you were going to cap your mockery of the magical hero story conventions by killing everyone unexpectedly in the magical equivalent of a gas leak.
I'm glad I didn't come across the story while you were in the middle of writing the Azerba-whatsit sequence or the suspense might have harmed me. I guess I'll check in next week to see if you've updated.
Sorry if "reviews" are not intended for this purpose.

All quite amazing.
I don't think I've laughed this hard for a long time.
I also find it quite nice to have intelligent characters in a story. I do appreciate it.
