| Harlequin de Rustre chapter 7 . 2/22
This story took a mild turn for the weird, but I'm allowing for flawed perspectives...
You honestly know how to write intelligent characters. That really takes some doing, not to mention some personal insights (ergo intelligence)
| Harlequin de Rustre chapter 6 . 2/22
If anything, this chapter raised the bar for subsequent chapters. A wide range of emotions and a genuine cognizance of the human psyche made for a positively enrapturing read.
This is quite possibly the first fic that I've been impressed with since shortly after I began reading such things.

This chapter tickled me literally pink. The fact that the repetition of the initial gag made for a more potent one- and then another right after that- is an indication that your writing is most definitely progressing in a "brilliant" direction.

The banter is really something else. Although it's not as shameless as some of the conversations I've penned, the one in this chapter has a cadence and a flow that are both very natural.
| Harlequin de Rustre chapter 3 . 2/22
A passively tragic scene without the sense of melodrama that most scenes of this general type maintain- within or without fan fiction.
The quality of the writing is keeping level with the preceding two, and I'm moderately happy for that.

I guffawed a little at some of the punchlines. It wasn't anything that dramatic, but that your writing is relatable enough to garner such a reaction is a good indication for the things to come (as far as my selfish desires for a non-boring HP fan fic go...)

To keep with being polite, I really like your pacing thus far. It's a fairly standard introductory chapter, though.

I've read all the chapters -all pub to date 2/18/14 and enjoyed them all immensely! Didn't see the note re: reviews till today and not being a member couldn't Fav before. Truly admire both your skill setting the story and how you manage the characters and the puzzles. I am a story collector and HPMoR is one of my favorites. Life obligations preclude my reading time lately...but I was up till 4AM the other day re-reading HPMoR, and saw your note saying not to stay up till 5AM! It made me laugh, then I took your advice and went to bed. Thank you for allowing us into your parallel universe, HPMoR is interesting, entertaining and thought provoking.

what the FUCK
| tolraisgrey chapter 11 . 2/21
THIS IS POSSIBLY THE FUNNIEST CRACKY HILARIOUS BEAUTY I HAVE EVER READ! THIS CHAPTER RIGHT HERE! YES THE CAPS LOCK IS NECESSARY! Seriously though, my housemates weren't sure whether I was sobbing or in hysterics. They're on the floor below me as I read. YOU RULE!

Funny. Kinda overdone, but still funny. Reminds of Big Bang Theory.
| Anaelyssa chapter 3 . 2/20
Only a burnt body left? How suspicious. How did they identify it as the Dark Lord? And why was the body burnt when the Killing Curse just separates the soul from the body? And how do they even know that the scar comes from the Killing Curse?
And why does Harry know Quirrel? Is he a horcrux or is there some more complicated explanation?
Just questions I'm asking myself while trying to figure stuff out.

When I first read about the headline in this chapter, I thought it was super funny and that your assurances that this would not be HPDM mpreg were silly and unnecessary. After this fic started my spiral into fanfic addiction (aided by the fact that I'm a yaoi fangirl), I just look back and think how wrong I was.
*Sigh* well, re-reading this after going through multiple other HP fanfics is going to be quite an experience.
| Scarecrow Repair chapter 79 . 2/20
I can think of two holes:
Why no Incantus Priori (sorry if I got that wrong) on both Draco's and Hermione's wands?
Supposedly Draco was saved from death in spite of being found so late because he was so strong; the murderer was planning on him being dead by the time he was noticed missing in the morning. Yet QQ had wards monitoring Draco's health, so although the murderer wouldn't have known that, Harry et al would have known that after the fact and not considered it mere luck that Draco was found in time and survived.

I have been reading this story up to here on and I thought it was high time that I should leave a note saying how much I enjoy it and THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH FOR ALL THE EFFORT YOU PUT IN! This really is amazing!
