| MissingMaeo chapter 11 . 10/22/2021
So that's why it felt bit unnatural when I read the previous chapter...
| ewan72 chapter 11 . 10/22/2021
Why wasn't the song in the original... it would've been perfect. how the sh**y the readers were... but now I just let myself take it as an alternative blooper like if the actors improvised while on set and the director just let the camera roll. hahaha

I'm so confused I want to cry while laughing
| aGnamZer0 chapter 11 . 1/29/2021
You know, I didn't comment any chapter because I would only be able to tell how much I laughed while reading your story, but now I just can't keep it form myself. I never laughed so much and hysterically while reading a fanfiction. Honestly, it's kind of relieving. Thanks for your work, I love it!
| The Unplanner chapter 11 . 1/7/2021
I shouldn't be laughing so hard at some of these, but I am and I don't regret it.
Although I am very glad you decided not to stick with the Ghostbusters song parody.
| NightTriumphant17 chapter 11 . 12/25/2020
Awesome. I was laughing throughout the entire chapter.
| Guest chapter 11 . 12/22/2020

This is bloody hilarious! I would save my review for when I finish the book but I'm 11 chapters in and your writing has opened up multiple dillemas in my brain and has made me laugh so much! Your work is amazing, truly.
| Darla Wolf chapter 11 . 9/3/2020
ROFLAO love the ideas. Thanks for the laughs :)

| Sw0rdS0ng chapter 11 . 5/24/2020
I don't know why they complained. The song was brilliant
| DeadFish37 chapter 11 . 5/20/2020
Honestly I prefer your ghostbusters chant to the idea you went with
| 117 chapter 11 . 5/13/2020
you are the most hilarious writer i have ever happened across, holy shit.
| Kylau Ren chapter 11 . 5/5/2020
Those. Are. BRILLIANT!
(My favorite will always be house Achoo though)
| Guest chapter 11 . 4/23/2020
Holy shit that is a nice beginning for an omake, you could do an intere fanfic only with it
| Wow chapter 11 . 4/23/2020
| Guest chapter 11 . 4/18/2020
WHAT THE H*** IS GOING ON?
| Bean89 chapter 11 . 4/17/2020
I... love this.
Also have you ever read a book that explains some complicated scientific information and it makes you feel like a genius so you want to leave a very intelligent thoughtful review but then you remember you’re actually just an average 13-in-two-days-year-old and you’re really not remarkable in any way, and certainly not in the way of knowledge and you’re pretty sure the review you do plan to leave will make very little sense except to yourself and why bother to review in the first place?
And then you realize that even by visualizing leaving this review you are putting yourself on a podium in your mind because in reality the review you leave will be disguised as an intelligent review when in fact it’s just a few run on sentences that don’t make sense even when you yourself read back over them but you won’t change them because you know you’ll never be able to recreate this sheer level of insanity and mind-blown-ness.
And look, now you’re just making up words to make yourself feel smarter.
I should’ve ended this after the first three words.
| PersephoneQOTU chapter 11 . 4/8/2020
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR INCLUDING THESE ABSOLUTE GEMS! I LAUGHED SO HARD AND THESE MADE MY DAY
| Aortica chapter 11 . 3/26/2020
OH MY GOD! I was trying to get to sleep after reading this, but of course my mind was still going crazy trying to dissect your book. I was thinking about what house I'd be in (Ravenclaw or Slytherin, ever a war) when it hit me. See I knew you'd be dropping hits because you said, but I literally wacked myself in the head when I realised; Ron says, Mr Gold - Gryffindor, Draco says, Mr Silver - Slytherin, Harry says Mr Bronze - Ravenclaw. Accurately predicting his house. Damn. That is truly well done. Though I'm not sure weather missing that means I'm not a Ravenclaw, for being stupid enough to not see it until now, or that I'm not Slytherin, for missing that not actually that hidden now that I think about it hint. Arghhh. I believe I am doing pretty okay, saying as I've never been that good at this stuff, though I'd LOVE to be. I predicted Hermione's fancy memory a few paragraphs before the reveal. And I've been piecing together new information with old hints. This is literally a logic puzzle and a book in one. That's amazing. I still don't understand the little note things at the top though. Are they quotes randomly chosen from within the chapter? For some reason I doubt it. Anyways, it almost 4 am and I really need to sleep. But overall, this is a beautifully crafted masterpiece.
| Blackbob chapter 11 . 2/11/2020
If I were the sorting hat, I would have gone with the last one
| Someone chapter 11 . 1/31/2020
All of these are amazing! My favorites have to be the achoo and the house elf ones! But th oficial chapter is PERFECT! 3 I know this is an old fic, but it's still great!
| Blackbob chapter 11 . 1/18/2020
Is the last one the final answer of the Sorting Hat or is Harry in Ravenclaw, like it was said in previous chapter?
| Alyce and Indi chapter 11 . 12/26/2019
| Guest chapter 11 . 12/19/2019
LOL even your omakes are hilarious
| aries12345251 chapter 11 . 12/14/2019
not my cup of tea and too many pointless arguments
| zachdabossss chapter 11 . 12/11/2019
I didn’t have much hope at first (given that I was into the story) but I’m DYING of laughter right now
| Guest chapter 11 . 11/4/2019
| Dude chapter 11 . 10/7/2019
The troll chapter, chapter 11 that is rather belongs at the end of the story.
| Guest chapter 11 . 9/24/2019
Useless and confusing. Not funny at all
| OneDocToHealThemAll chapter 11 . 8/21/2019
Totally confused right now.
| Majerus chapter 11 . 7/3/2019
-rinse and repeat, aud naseum-
| Berrybanana05 chapter 11 . 5/13/2019
I’m laughing so hard that I’m crying-
All of these are hilarious
“Scenario after scenario played out through Minerva's head, each worse than the last. The Hat would say that Harry was too evenly balanced between Houses to Sort, and decide that he belonged to all of them. The Hat would proclaim that Harry's mind was too strange to be Sorted. The Hat would demand that Harry be expelled from Hogwarts. The Hat had gone into a coma. The Hat would insist that a whole new House of Doom be created just to accomodate Harry Potter, and Dumbledore would make her do it...“
| Merc chapter 11 . 4/20/2019
Really? I thought omake was a salmon skin roll... Or a prana-bindu technique. Where fear has gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain. The sorting is done and, as expected, hopes change nothing. Being as futile as fear. Why are you so sure the sorting hat was not lying about losing his/its self-awareness? What if he/it goes HAT 9000 and takes over the world while humans/wizards fight each other?
| Wicked.A chapter 11 . 3/23/2019
The parts where the hat exploded after screaming ,with draco,Naruto and him beeing the headmaster were the best (in my opinion) and am very intersted in reading a harry x preg fem rapist draco...
| Wildheart21 chapter 11 . 2/15/2019
Okay that was crazy this story is confusing the heck outta me but it so funny i can't stop LOL
| thebestofall chapter 11 . 12/18/2018
God damn. The Omakes are awesome!
| Millie072 chapter 11 . 12/11/2018
Omake or not, this chapter was not more than a waste of time.
| BorderLand chapter 11 . 10/30/2018
If only the hat made him Headmaster, I would probably die of laughter.
| Srita Tragalibros chapter 11 . 10/19/2018
I've got screenshots of all these non-canon scenes, because they're THE BEST SCENES I'VE READ IN MY LIFE. I'm crying, I can no longer laugh, this is too much.
| AnimeVampire chapter 11 . 10/14/2018
NOOOOO DONT MAKE HIM THE HEADMASTER ITS TOO MUCH POWER FOR HIM NO ONE WILL BE SAFE

| Dragonflydotcom chapter 11 . 7/15/2018
OH goodness me... this last OMAKE is the best.. I just had an explosion of BUNNIES...
| suziq968 chapter 11 . 7/9/2018

| Guest chapter 11 . 6/16/2018
You just made my day right there with this chapter. Thank you
| HDan chapter 11 . 6/3/2018
"Headmaster!" called the Sorting Hat.
At the Head Table, Dumbledore rose, his face puzzled. "Yes?" he addressed the Hat. "What is it?"
"I wasn't talking to you," said the Hat. "I was Sorting Harry Potter into the place in Hogwarts where he most belongs, namely the Headmaster's office -"
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL :D ahahahahahha this would be epic! :D
| Guest chapter 11 . 5/15/2018
Lmao. Absolutely hilarious.
| HowOddSheMustBeToBeMad chapter 11 . 4/9/2018

| Unicornglittercats69 chapter 11 . 3/12/2018
this is fucking brilliant. the bloopers made my fucking life. read this fic it's so worth it.
| AlenDarkStar chapter 11 . 3/7/2018
The final part of the chaptet is the worst-case scenario, Harry/headmaster change quidditch and eliminate snitch.
I like this omakes, are funny.
| IzzyLinc chapter 11 . 2/24/2018
haha wut is this? im dying
| GreenMasks chapter 11 . 2/6/2018

| beigedecore chapter 11 . 12/30/2017
I laughed so hard while reading this! :D
| Emporer Bloodfire chapter 11 . 12/20/2017
I have to say this chapter of omake was the best of ever read.
I have literal tears in my eyes and pains in my chest from laughing so hard.
| Guest chapter 11 . 12/7/2017
Not sure if I already reviewed this but you said that Lee Jordan could be muggle born because of his name but all the Weasely kids have muggle names as well
| Mr Foreman chapter 11 . 12/7/2017
Best Chapter ever and the Draco is a girl was my favorite HAHAHA
| IamtheK chapter 11 . 11/28/2017
Awww, I can't decide which one's the best. Love the ideas from everyone. I really like that song, thank you for sharing it
| Fiction is the Truth chapter 11 . 11/13/2017
The last one was GOLD.
| Grademaster chapter 11 . 11/8/2017
Oh God please tell me there are more omakes
| UBlessedCreature chapter 11 . 10/23/2017
OH MY GOD
I LOVE THIS
I WANT TO MAKE A PODFIC- JUST OF THIS
IT"S TOO PERFECT
AND GOD- THE ONE WHERE IT CLAIMS MALFOY IS AN OLDER CROSSDRESSING GIRL THAT RAPED HIM IS AT ONCE HORRIFYING AND FUNNY (as long as it did let him know it was a lie- otherwise just horrifying)
| dbpeel chapter 11 . 10/7/2017
This is beutiful
| laenamoradadeROGUE chapter 11 . 9/7/2017
OMG I laughed so hard. I simply had to read that with the ghostbuster intrumental version on the background. This was tooo funny. And soorry, I am not going to review every chapter but this was epic. Ghostbusters. Plus all the scenarios of how the Hat reacts, i especially liked it exploding, how will the rest of the first years be sorted? There's still Weasley, Zabini, Thomas, Smith, all those unsorted? Let them join House Elf!
| Coolspygirl chapter 11 . 8/29/2017
Omg sass at the end! But really...you should have had a warning that this chapter was hazardous to my health. I swear I was laughing so hard my brother was starting to get worried cause I was crying like someone just died while not breathing. Gosh warning, I can never look at Draco the same way again...I shouldn't have said that, that brought me into another laughing fit. Favorite chapter here.
| Derpidot chapter 11 . 8/27/2017
im wheezing in my pillow ahhhhh
| Ballerina-Geek chapter 11 . 7/25/2017
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA I AM LAUGHING MY ASS OFF!
Your are a precious gem from above! I love your sense of humor and you have me rolling on the ground all throughout that chapter! I love you so much. Thank you!
| Kimmytrainer chapter 11 . 7/23/2017
THAT. WAS. FUCKING. FANTASTIC. HOW DID YOU WRITE THIS ARE YOU A GOD?
| Cry0maniac chapter 11 . 7/23/2017
I died when the hat shouted "KHAAAAN"

This chapter is killing me!I can't breath.
| Guest chapter 11 . 4/22/2017
You're insane. In a good way. Ish. But, best thing I've read today. Been laughing my head off some the beginning.
| ack1308 chapter 11 . 4/6/2017
Giggling uncontrollably again. I blame you.
| WildNoa13474 chapter 11 . 3/15/2017
Hahaha, this is absolutely amazing/genius/hilarious. Don't worry, hat, he's also the reincarnation of Gabriel, Merlin, Regulus Black, and a bunch of other characters.
| Amused chapter 11 . 3/14/2017
You have my utmost respect for taking shots at the absurd number of rehashed reincarnation-fics that the Naruto and HP fandom generate when crossed over with literally anything.
| SnuggleKitten69 chapter 11 . 3/10/2017
I don't know if it is my pain medications or the pain which is causing me to be so giggly, but the make file was hysterical.
| aribabybloom chapter 11 . 3/9/2017
oh dear, this chapter was absolutely hilarious!
| WhiteWhisperingWind chapter 11 . 3/3/2017
Help! XD i can't stop laughing!
you are a truly good writer, and i love the chaos! :D
| LadyPhoenixKnight chapter 11 . 2/27/2017
i absolutely want to see you write this kind of harry personality as headmaster. make it an epic and change everything according to scientific logic not wizard logic. it could be a cool way for him to take over the world.
| Morfanerina chapter 11 . 2/2/2017
I can't stop laughing, I cAN'T BREATHE
| yuritsudalove chapter 11 . 1/1/2017
Estos omakes fueron geniales. Pobre Minerva tendrá pesadillas siempre.
| SilentAttendance chapter 11 . 12/18/2016
OMG THE SORTING HAT I CANT ROFL MY STOMACH HURTS
| Silverfyre16 chapter 11 . 12/16/2016
All the different outcomes are so FUNNY! My favorites are the Naruto and ACHOO ones!
| Meerhawk chapter 11 . 12/10/2016
These are too freaking perfect to have not been excluded. Thank you.
| PatchworkChimera chapter 11 . 12/5/2016
dying from laughter from this chapter
| Jatok chapter 11 . 11/13/2016
Ohhh fuck me, this was too damn funny. I liked the hufflepuff, slytherin, hufflepuff one the best though haha
| HecateMist chapter 11 . 11/5/2016
Dammit, I haven't watched Naruto yet... It's ridculously long though, so I highly doibt a consistantly good plot would suffuse it.
| Not.Lex.Luthor chapter 11 . 10/25/2016
i have three favourite answers out of that and they are:
in that order
i think i would have accepted the ghostbusters theme as whaat actually happened because that was just fantastic
| River king chapter 11 . 10/4/2016
| Guest chapter 11 . 9/28/2016
My first time reading and I cannot stop laughing. I am quite sure that my roommates are under the impression that I am crazy.
| Rambling Drabble chapter 11 . 9/20/2016
1. Damn, Fred Weasley. That's so brilliant. And changemyvoiceo: best spell name ever.
2. Yup, McGonagall ain't no pessimist, that's for sure. She's still one of the most awesome adults in this fic, at least for a while, but that combo just makes here character that much better.
| blood-doll-aishiteru chapter 11 . 9/15/2016
God, the last one's the best, only thing missing are McGonagall's terrified screams at the end.
| maana999 chapter 11 . 9/12/2016
Most of these are just GENIUS.
I liked the ghostbuster one the most though. :P
(Could def. see the twins and Lee doing that)
| SilentSnowLeopardNinja chapter 11 . 9/4/2016
Being sorted as headmaster is my favorite one.
| Denz-El chapter 11 . 9/4/2016
Hmmm... I like the "Ghostbusters" version better. :)
GOD Bless, keep up the Good Work, and Keep Moving Forward! :D Amen! :D
| JD73hsnHSBDF chapter 11 . 9/2/2016
I'm laughing so hard and utterly amazed. This chapter blew my mind and I love it. The scenarios McGonagall thought out ... I love it. (The shampoo allergic one is epic. EPIC.)
Love this hilarious and wonderful chapter.

| Lupinefire chapter 11 . 8/28/2016
| Littwink chapter 11 . 8/27/2016
I died in the middle of this chapter, then revived myself due to my insatiable curiosity just to finish it.
| AstoriaGrace chapter 11 . 7/28/2016
Oh my gosh. I think I almost snuffed it when I read that Draco Malfoy is a 13 year old rapist girl. I love you, Sorting hat. And Harry saying that they never had sex...
Also, the Ghost Busters moment made me really crack up. I just saw the new film remake yesterday, so the song in fresh in my head.
| The-Mrning-Star chapter 11 . 7/25/2016
The crack soooo much crack. !
| Guest chapter 11 . 7/20/2016
I didn't understand a thing in that chapter. Can someone please explain it to me

| Guest chapter 11 . 5/21/2016
YOU ARE A VERY BAD PERSON! Once again you made me laugh SO hard - this time at the sorting - , once again I had a physical response! This time an asthma attack. I could well die before I reach ch 122 at this rate .. Ms Tinkerbell
| TheLittleRoguex chapter 11 . 5/14/2016
| Violet Hiwatari chapter 11 . 5/9/2016
Oh. My. Gods.
I just died laughing! Scientifically impossible, then who'd be typing this? However, here's my secret, (professor. I'm ALWAYS angry.)
I Lied. (You don't say?!)
Never mind me, a surprise school holiday does this to me.
Seriously, incredible chapter. And story, too, till now. Harry( ) is what I think Calvin would be like when he grows up, perhaps.
You just got a new follower to your story :)
| gi-freakazoid chapter 11 . 5/2/2016

Cracked me up reading. People're looking at me weirdly.
| Guest chapter 11 . 1/9/2016
Bloody hysterically funny ! As someone with an I.Q. of about 170 & an eidetic memory , I can really see this Harry's point of view .
| NicoCheesediPizzaAngelo chapter 11 . 1/1/2016
Oh gods. I think mum thinks I'm sick. I've been cackling for over five minutes. The Omake files 3 are everything that is good in the world (except for this fic, of course) and I just wanted to thank you so much for including them

I love these omakes especially. I can't help but laughing so hard! I knew you wouldn't write 'okane' without actually reading a manga or two. These omakes are brilliant and witty!
- Wanderlust no tsubasa
| Joker Army chapter 11 . 12/14/2015

I actually rather like the original version of chapter nine, the song was quite nice and would suit Fred and George. A lot the omakes are really funny, but for some reason the one where Fred "saves" Harry by making it seem like he was assigned to Gryffindor is kind of heartwarming. Harry seems to get along well enough with the Weasley twins in this version, so Fred trying to help him is quite nice.
| Citrus Sinensis chapter 11 . 11/23/2015
Oh, there you are! I have something to say to you, it concerns this batch of omake. Here it is:
I scared my mum laughing at this at an annoyingly late hour of the night, while my sisters were asleep.
So I was forced to make a strategic retreat to my bedroom,where I collapsed laughing into my pillow and stayed like that with tears pouring down my face for about five minutes. THAT'S how good that was.
Did I mention that this fic is the best?
No? Ah,well. Must be over-exposure to hilariousness messing with me again.
Best fic EVAAAAH!
*slinks off to re-read the chapter and repeat the above and aforementioned effects of reading it before*
| Crack-jouchan chapter 11 . 11/8/2015
Worst case scenario: HE'S HER BOSS. Ohhh the chaos that would come from that xD hahahahaha!
Omake 1 is hilarious as well. Harry is all calm like while Dumbledore is probably hyperventilating across the table from him xD I love this Harry!

i can see why people didn't like the ghost buster version, if only because it felt jarring and didn't mesh well with the rest of the chapter. i think my favorite omakes were the 'harry, you ARE the father' one and the last one

After the drama and tension and unnameable aspect of the last chapter, this comedic chapter was a much needed break! And I will view the thing with Fred and George making the Hat say Gryffindor as canon.

The Khaaaaan one was the funneiest!
And the last one where Harry gets sorted as the headmaster - I have seen that in one other fic as well.
But the real sorting in the last chapter - where the hat says "just kidding" and changes its mind - after half an hour or so of silence - well that was probably for the best.
I can see why this fic is now more than 100 chapters long since Harry clearly has this obsessive need to QUESTION every single thing that he ever sees or learns!
It must get boring sometimes. Because now Harry is ten times worse that the Know-it-All that Hermione ever was.

Holy crap. I'm about to die of laughter.
“Oh dear. This has never happened before.”
“Your mind is beginning to assimilate mine.”
WHAAAAT? You mean like the Borg?
“No! Shut up!”
YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.
The Sorting Hat screamed and leapt off Harry’s head seconds before it grew a rather unsightly scar on its brim and suddenly sported glasses. It then began hopping maniacally towards the Head Table shouting, “YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED.”
“Oh dear. This has never happened before.”
“Harry... I am your father.”
“PIKACHU! I CHOOSE YOU!”
“Oh dear. This has never happened before.”
“I’ve heard about students writing fanfiction about other students before, but it seems that students of Hogwarts are already shipping you with Draco Malfoy.”
“And Professor Snape.”
Sweat began to break out on Professor McGonagall’s brow. Scenario after scenario played out through Minerva's head, each worse than the last. The Hat would say that Harry was too evenly balanced between Houses to Sort, and decide that he belonged to all of them. The Hat would proclaim that Harry's mind was too strange to be Sorted. The Hat would demand that Harry be expelled from Hogwarts. The Hat had gone into a coma. The Hat would insist that a whole new House of Doom be created just to accommodate Harry Potter, and Dumbledore would make her do it...
Well, at least she would be recognized forever as the head of House Doom. An easier route to fame... now that she could live with. Maybe she’d grow famous enough that she could resign and live in Chiswick in the Wizarding District. Or she could find some crazy cat lady and live with her for the rest of her life. As a cat, of course. Suddenly the House of Doom wasn’t sounding so bad.
“MCGONAGALL!” the Sorting Hat shouted.
Confused, Professor McGonagall rose from her chair. “Yes? What is it?”
“No, no, I was just sorting Harry Potter into Minerva McGonagall’s care,” the Hat explained. “You will be his tutor through his seven years at Hogwarts.”
“Excellent!” Dumbledore proclaimed, seemingly oblivious to the look of horror on McGonagall’s face, her dreams of retirement shattered. “McGonagall will be head of Gryffindor in addition to her new duties as Harry’s tutor.”
“Headmaster!” she protested. “I cannot possibly put up with that kind of workload!”
“Then I will have someone else teach your Transfiguration classes.”
Professor Sprout rose as well, her face the color of spoiled milk. “Then who will teach Herbology?”
The Defense Professor wasn’t listening. He was a zombie.
McGonagall asked the question that the Defense Professor surely would have asked had he been awake. “Then who will teach Defense Against the Dark Arts?”
Dumbledore thought for a moment. “Voldemort.”
Harry woke up in the infirmary. Madam Pomfrey was hovering over him, muttering incantations while her wand spewed sparks in his face.
“Oh good, you’re awake,” she said briskly. “A mental overload like that would have made you into a vegetable if you weren’t everything everyone said you were.”
A drop of liquid slid down Harry’s throat.
“Fortunately for you, you are,” she finished.
“What happened?” Harry asked.
Madam Pomfrey sighed. “You overloaded the Sorting Hat with questions, so both your minds overloaded. The Sorting Hat exploded.”
“Then where am I sorted?”
“The Ministry of Magic convened on this while you were asleep. They decided to look at the facts - that the Sorting Hat was hundreds of years old, that its most ancient and sacred magics were lost when you destroyed it, and now Hogwarts is completely turned upside down, because half the first-years still haven’t been Sorted.. Judging from this, they have decided to move you to Durmstrang.”
“THIS IS SPARTAAAAAAA!”
The Sorting Hat sat on Harry Potter’s head for over ten minutes. The atmosphere in the Great Hall was one of absolute tension. The first years were already whispering that the Sorting Hat taking a long time to sort someone was the hallmark of a Dark Wizard. The older ones shook their heads and tried to look smarter than the younger ones, while most of the time dismally failing.
Suddenly the Sorting Hat straightened. “Everyone!” it called. “I have an important announcement!”
At this the entire Head Table stood. In over eight hundred years the Sorting Hat had never made any announcement other than the Sorting. This was unheard of, but somehow McGonagall figured that it wasn’t a coincidence that the Hat had decided to make its first ever announcement while it rested on the head of Harry Potter.
“Harry Potter and I have decided to get married!”
“BACON ON EGGS ON TOAST!”
“Oh dear. This has never happened before.”
“Open the fob watch. You’ll see.”
“SLYTHERIN!” the Sorting Hat announced, as Harry swept it off his head and went to join Draco Malfoy at the Slytherin table.
An old lady wearing magenta standing by the Head Table smiled at the sight of them. “Look at you two! You would make the perfect couple!”
Harry looked up at the lady. “Ma’am - I’m not gay.”
She smiled again. “Don’t bother denying it, dear; it’s all the same to me.” She looked into the eyes of everyone in the Hall. “Live and let live, that’s what I say.”
“SHUT UP, MRS. HUDSON!”
“Mr. Hat, that’s not a House -”
“Yes it is, as a matter of fact. A most Noble and Ancient House.”
Draco was smirking.
“But why are you Sorting me into -”
“You and Draco are now married.”
“HUFFLEPUFF! haha jk lol”
“HEADMASTER!” the Sorting Hat called.
“Yes?” Dumbledore asked, rising from his chair.
The Sorting Hat swiveled on Harry’s head to look at the Headmaster. “Who is responsible for allowing Harry Potter into Hogwarts?”
It took a few moments for Professor McGonagall to realize that Dumbledore was looking very pointedly in her direction. She stood, nearly falling in the process, and, doing her best to sound authoritative, said, “That would be me.”
“Then,” the Sorting Hat proclaimed, “I hereby re-Sort you into Slytherin, where all the Dark Wizards belong, for you have committed a most evil crime.”
McGonagall was speechless. Instead it was Harry Potter who spoke from under the Hat’s brim. “On what charges do you accuse Minerva McGonagall?”
“Bringing this THING into this school!”
“Mr. Hat, that’s not a House -”
“Yes it is, as a matter of fact. A most Able and Nocient House.”
“What the hell?”
“Oops. Sorry.” The Hat looked embarrassed, if a hat can look embarrassed. “I got tongue-tied.”
“HOW CAN YOU GET TONGUE-TIED? YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE A TONGUE!”
“I’LL BE BACK.”
The Headmaster rose, looking puzzled. “Excuse me?”
“Bond... James Bond.”
Harry sighed. “You keep using that word. I do not think you know what it means.”
“ERROR 404. SORTING NOT FOUND.”
“WAX ON, WAX OFF!”
“DON’T WORRY! I GOT A RESTRAINING ORDER ON THE WINCHESTER BROTHERS!”
According to Professor Dumbledore after the Sorting, nobody had known that the Hat had a self-destruct.
“WIZARD!” the Hat shouted, after twenty-three long minutes on Harry’s head.
Hagrid rose from the Head Table, a look of pure astonishment plastered onto his face. “Harry...” he stammered. “Yer a wizard.”
“SHUT UP, HAGRID!” shouted George Weasley. “You say that every time you enlist a new wizard!”
“Yeah!” shouted Fred. “I remember when you said that to me!”
Hagrid protested angrily. “No, I said that to George.”
Fred and George looked at each other and then continued. “Yes, I’m George!” Fred said. “And I remember when you -”
Dumbledore watched all of this with a slight smile and benign twinkle in his eyes, while Professor Snape looked as if he was trying to make his head explode. Professor McGonagall had her head in her hands, and Professors Flitwick and Sprout were trying (unsuccessfully) to ignore the whole spectacle. As for the students, they simply sat where they were, as if frozen. A few of the first years were tugging at the older ones’s sleeves, trying to figure out if t

Haha, these omakes were harilious! I liked all the random "house" names shouting, and also the one where the sorting hat trolls Harry! (trolls as in: makes fun of, not in the actual mythological creature...)
You know, in one way, this whole entire chapter could just be the sorting hat running it's head through all the possibilities of how he/she could've sorted Harry, and all the flashes of sortings are just it's thinking. But since it borrows another person's intelligence to communicate, perhaps it could be sitting on somebody's head in this chapter? I'm thinking perhaps Professor Mcgonagal, since I doubt Harry will want to look at sorting possibilities if he had another conversation with the sorting hat :P I also love the one where it runs off Harry's head and explodes XD

"Oh, dear. This has never happened before..."
"I'm allergic to your hair shampoo -"
And then the Sorting Hat sneezed, with a mighty "A-CHOO!" that echoed around the Great Hall.
"Well!" Dumbledore cried jovially. "It seems Harry Potter has been sorted into the new House of Achoo! McGonagall, you can serve as the Head of House Achoo. You'd better hurry up on making arrangements for Achoo's curriculum and classes, tomorrow is the first day!"
"But, but, but," stammered McGonagall, her mind in nearly complete disarray, "who will be Head of House Gryffindor?" It was all she could think of, she had to stop this somehow...
Dumbledore put a finger to his cheek, looking thoughtful. "Snape."
Snape's screech of protest nearly drowned out McGonagall's, "Then who will be Head of Slytherin?"
Oww Oww my sides hurt I was laughing so much. I think im gonna die from laughing too much. Oww

| tricorvus chapter 11 . 8/2/2013
I like the last one best. And quite frankly, the Sorting Hat used in Harry's Sorting was an imposter anyway. As the original, which sorted my husband (rghosman) into Slytherin in 1973, found his mind too awfully strange, leapt off his head and committed suicide...
| Pavel.Fr chapter 11 . 8/1/2013
The last omake was hilarious and I loved Minnie's nightmare! I really enjoyed the omake with Gred and Forge!
| Ash-Bookworm113 chapter 11 . 8/1/2013
F***ING AWESOME! :)
| Netchka chapter 11 . 7/31/2013
Funny bits. Made me laugh. :-)
| Arafell chapter 11 . 7/25/2013
This is still the best Omake (3) ever written.
| Anise chapter 11 . 7/16/2013
Oh, I had forgotten how much I love this story.
And it truly is a story- you laugh, you cry, you smile, and perhaps most importantly, you grow. Every chapter seems like a new lesson, broadening your intellect as well as your own moral conscious, demanding more of you.
I could go on, but I won't bore you. You're a gifted writer and your story has made me think more than 12 years of education combined. Well done!
| SkyNocturne chapter 11 . 7/13/2013
Omg... this omake chapter is precious...! I've never laughed so hard in my life! Especially about the shampoo and also the last one...haha!
| Tama Saga chapter 11 . 7/12/2013
Oh god! Those are some awesome sortings. I particularly liked the Khan and headmaster scenario.
| Guest chapter 11 . 7/12/2013
i love it!
absolutely the headmasters office!

i got to give kudos and thumbs up to the nartuo omake. double thumbs to the ghost buster one and a salute to the headmaster office.
| ava-rook chapter 11 . 7/5/2013
lol *wiping tears of mirth* last omake is my fav. but fred changing his voice is a close second lol *falls off seat*

As mentioned before tea doesn't interact well with lungs. :XD Absolutely loved this.
| Mobius Command chapter 11 . 7/1/2013
Ah, yes, omakes. These are often funny/crackficish/(lolwut?)ish. Some odd ideas, ones that actually made some SENSE, aaand the raep. Honestly, that was quite the unique idea for a HP fanfi! Now...off to find Shipping material!
| Guest chapter 11 . 6/30/2013
What just happened?
Where am I?
| Alissie chapter 11 . 6/30/2013
2. THANK YOU for removing it. I'm one of those people allergic to lyrics in fanfic. It didn't really fit the tone, either, though I could see it happening. (Except Ron would have gone to sit with his brother and they would have found out that Harry is a prat right now and wouldn't have been singing like that at all. In my head, at least.)

Kudos for the Naruto mention! :D
But wow. I feel for Minerva! Having Harry as headmaster *shakes head pityingly*
| awesomeness-rocks chapter 11 . 5/16/2013
I love the last omake. It is hallarous.
| XxXDark-DesiresxXx chapter 11 . 5/8/2013
I am wondering it there is a way to favorite certain chapters because I love chapter eleven! I could not stop laughing!
| EternallyPivots chapter 11 . 5/4/2013
I thought there was a part in the last chapter where it said "suddenly, it wasn't too late" for Harry to change the choices he made, and that's why he went to Ravenclaw. Did it get deleted, or was it never there? If it was intentionally deleted, is this because you changed your mind about the cause of the last line, or simply because you didn't want to give away some part of it?
| foodgoodmovebad chapter 11 . 5/1/2013
this chapter is AWESOME and my favorite part was "ROOT!" although it was a tough call between that and "PANCAKE!" (Root was a reference to Naruto, right?) this entire Fanfiction is brilliant and I love it so far! even though Harry annoys me so much sometimes (maybe all of the time) :P
| Ceellia-19 chapter 11 . 4/21/2013
THIS IS SO FUNNY I MUST USE CAPS LOCK TO STRESS EXACTLY HOW MUCH.
No seriously, this is hilarious. Just for fun, I decided to check the most reviewed story HP story on ever, and I honestly expected it be something disappointing, however, it is not. Thank you for this, and I'll be on to the next chapter.
ps: do you think JK Rowling ever reads fanfiction? (I know I would if I were her) She really ought to read this.
pps: I don't expect an answer on the question stated earlier.
ppps: yes, I know that makes the former statement, as well as the question, completely superfluous.
| RussianDestruction chapter 11 . 4/18/2013
"Who will be Head of House Gryffindor?"
Dumbledore put a finger to his cheek, looking thoughtful. "Snape."
Snape's screech of protest nearly drowned out McGonagall's, "Then who will be Head of Slytherin?"
OMG HAHAHAHAHA! And my favorite alternate sorting scene was draco m!preg. :P
And that last part, with the Hat sorting him into the Headmaster's office? TEEHEE!
| sww11685 chapter 11 . 4/16/2013
Hilarious, all of the alternate sortings.
| Chmia chapter 11 . 4/5/2013
You made me giggle on several occasions, thank you. This piece of fanfiction is an excellent example of wit.

What about the House of Cards?
| Lord Jashin Follower chapter 11 . 3/25/2013
I laughed when Hadrid became the head of house for Slytherin. I spit out my milk when Harry was the reincarnation of Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin, and Naruto. Buy as a Trekie(only TOS) I actually covered my face a rolled around on the ground when Khan popped up. . . KHAAANNNN!
| Random number generator chapter 11 . 3/7/2013
This is hilarious.
| justthelittlethings chapter 11 . 3/3/2013

| hervissa chapter 11 . 2/27/2013
Holy ROwling, those Omakes are awesome XDDD
I think that the first one is perfectly okay to happen...because that's how Harry thinks, right? ;)
Ghostbusters - awesome idea :D
And the "endings"...I have no words. I laughed too hard. "But who will be the Head of Slytherin?" "Hagrid." xDDDD
I know. I make too many smileys. But that's the only way how to show my YAYAYAYAYing while reading another amazing chap :D
| Awesome chapter 11 . 2/26/2013
Reincarnation of Naruto? Lol, totally wasn't expecting that!
| The Skaz of the Void chapter 11 . 2/12/2013
Dude, you totally should have thrown in the ghostbusters gag. And the Atreides bit nearly killed me from laughing. Well done.
| MaritimeBlue chapter 11 . 2/10/2013
Oh. Dear. Lord. I honestly wasn't sure when to write a review, but after laughing so hard I began to cry, I simply must applaud you, Dear Author.
What a stunning INTJ you have created.
And Harry's little speeches have made me PROUD to be a scientist.
Carry on, as I will certainly carry on reading.
| Enei Emmu chapter 11 . 2/2/2013
Why was there not an omake of SPARTA!?
Also, "Headmaster" was brilliant.

I'm going to print your omake and pin it over my bed. No more morning depression!
| Arkh Cthuul chapter 11 . 1/2/2013
Ah, that explains it.
On a sidenote: still hilarious, especially the Draco, Khaannnn(!), Atreides and final "versions".
| TLD110166 chapter 11 . 1/2/2013
I just about sprayed soda across my computer screen, when I read the last Omake. ROFLMAO! I wish I'd started reading this story, once it reached 60,000 words, which is where I have my story length filter set.

I'm a Chinese. Someone translated your novel into Chinese and put it on our forum. He translated only 5 chapters，but I really want to know what happened then. So I come to fanfiction for the English version. I'm not very good at English, some of those local expressions confused me. BUT the story do attracts me a lot. I love your characters.
| Diavo chapter 11 . 11/12/2012
good that you put the Harry Potter version of Ghostbusters here. i missed it.

Yay, the song is still there! I can understand people not liking it, but it's nice to know it still exists.
Personally, getting to hear the Ghostbusters theme song in its original context was the highlight of the entire movie. This is what happens to you when you need to take a break from HPMOR :)
| small sin chapter 11 . 7/27/2012
I absolutely loved this chapter, the comic relief was amazing even if it wasn't really needed because the story itself is very funny.

Chapter 11 with the Omakes was freaking hilarious! I couldn't... Omg xD
| Guest chapter 11 . 7/1/2012
The one about the rape and following obliviation was the funniest one, imo.
No, really; it's just a case of fundamental attribution error. If you read the reviews first then you just need some context.
| Guest chapter 11 . 6/30/2012
This was great. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every one of these possible scenarios. Bravo.

| pocketgiraffe chapter 11 . 5/20/2012
Oh gosh, I can't stop giggling like an idiot. THIS OMAKE IS ABSOLULTELY HILARIOUS. While I'm at it, your entire story and writing is just fantastic in general. I've never read anything this great on ever!
| SAMarcus chapter 11 . 5/17/2012
In fact, if I could sue you for nearly giving me a cardiac/asphyxiating me due to laughter, I'd be calling my laywer... well, I'd have someone else call my lawyer since I would be incapacitated.
Kepp it up, you sick wierdo :))
| YeahYouWannaKnowMyName chapter 11 . 5/9/2012
had to review this chapter if only to say "Poor Minerva" xD You, my dear, are brilliant. This story is something I never expected to find on this site. It is a challenge to read. Not just because I can't just burst into laughter in this house, but because I have to actually keep tabs open to look things up and understand the text completely. I've been reading this for 3 days and I am completely enthralled each time I pull it back up. Though I think you should put a warning in the description. When I first started reading I had an asthma attack from being surprised into laughter by Harry (or, rather, your) quick wit. Your Harry is completely tearing apart the world of Harry Potter that I know and I am enjoying it! haha
| Fair Representation Rep chapter 11 . 5/8/2012
Please, I don't think you have really considered ALL possibilities here.
For example, why wasn't Harry sent to House of the Squid? Or what about living with the mermaids, where he might be able to learn new languages and have his first experience in anthropologizing magical existences? Because really, jumping into the magical world of humans is a lot for such a hyperactive mind as his. He could potentially go insane! Floating foetally around in water for a few years, especially those dangerous teenage ones, would give him a chance to calm down a little. Maybe have a confidence-building Avataresque experience.
Or he could have gone to House of the Forbidden Forest, where he could spy on the centaurs' research into astronomy and divination each night, returning home to his unicorn bride at dawn to suckle from her golden nipple all the day long. A much more productive existence.
Or sent to Beauxbatons, where there are SURELY some pretentious French children who have some experience with Descartes and Diderot.
Harry should really get out more. Push his boundaries. That would be the best stimulation for a child like him.
And of course, get him a pet. He needs a pet. He needs something fuzzy to love him.
Lots of love,
| Becky chapter 11 . 5/7/2012
Dear me. HOW could you say that this story picks up around Chapter 10 (ok, it did...) and not let readers know that Chapter 11 is hysterical! I haven't laughed so hard in weeks.
I do believe I'm in love with your Minerva from the final Omake.
| cherapin chapter 11 . 5/5/2012
Yeah, yeah, but the problem with all this egotistical (egoistical?) shoving yourself as author into the narrative (tale, story?) is that the reader (namely me, you egoistical bastridge, as Johnny Dangerously might say) is that I don't *want" to lose my train of thought and I don't want to follow all these alternative narratives. I like the story, tale, narrative you had going, you maroon, so get off your self-imposed pedestal and get on with it . . . if you please.
| Hello chapter 11 . 5/4/2012
I love this story so far. I have to say I'm very impressed, I love Harry's logical way of thinking, if he was raised that way, I'm thoroughly positive, that in fact. He would act this way, I like and am sort of disturbed by it in way. He is intelligent, and his theories all logical, perfect, and make others at a loss for words. I do think, that if I get farther, he will think to much of his intelligence and go to far with it. He has already asked Hermione, I think this Harry and Hermione would be able to discover a lot of things, I just hope he doesn't become to conceited, and becomes evil. Though I do see that as a high-probability. This is a very interesting, perspective and idea, I'm really into it, and I will continue to read on. You are an amazing writer, this is one the most well-written stories I have read.

Ohmygodohgod. This is damn right hilarious! I was bloody rolling on the floor laughing my friggin lungs out. Nice! :D :D :D
| psychothumbs chapter 11 . 4/21/2012
The first Omake in this chapter gives me an idea for a recursive fanfic: What if Methods of Rationality Harry was raised by the Dursleys? Basically, what if HPMOR lacked it's single primary point of departure, but still had all of the little and not so little other differences that separate it from canon? Presumably the Harry that exists in this new timeline would be something of a cross between canon!Harry and Rationality!Harry. Basically his intelligence and competence would be scaled up to the same degree that everyone's has in the HPMORverse, rather than to the incredible heights of Rational!Harry He'd probably be more like the hero Dumbledore was expecting really.

Hey, you have a point saying HP is like Naruto. I never noticed that.
I think you could have gone with the one where the Sorting Hat answers all the questions really quick and sorts him. That would have been hilarious and random. But I'm glad you went with the mental debate.
| BYoshi1993 chapter 11 . 4/7/2012
Great Omakes. A few of them made me laugh. As for your request for the last Omake to be made into a story, it slightly has. Look the "The Headmaster" by Chris Robins. It's pretty good in my opinion. I can't wait to read more of this amazing story.
| phantomsonic chapter 11 . 4/2/2012
Dear sweet mother of god, I love this chapter.
| Strop chapter 11 . 3/16/2012
I love this story and all it's rationality and science and witty, quotable lines. The first couple of Omake files were awesome...and the joke about House Atraides made me smile. Keep up the awesomeness!
| Citsimsan chapter 11 . 2/21/2012
I couldn't wait to write my review. I've only read the first eleven chapters, but this fic would be worth it just with them. Pure comedy gold. It's said that it's more difficult to make people laugh than anything else, so I can assure you this experiment of yours is successful, at least with me.
I'll see what happens with the "Drama" parts.
| Robbie the Phoenix chapter 11 . 2/18/2012
Words... cannot... describe...
I think I may have broken a rib from laughing so hard. I definitely got some odd looks. The final Omake is almost certainly my favourite, just because I really love your portrayal of Professor McGonagall. Just for this chapter, I'm now adding this story to my Favourites.
| The Blind One chapter 11 . 2/18/2012
Thank you for that bit of perspective on how much else changed in this universe. Harry may be ludicrously overpowered, but so's turban-free Quirell, and even ol' Albus isn't that bad.
"ROOT!" Am now giggling far too hard.
I initially parsed the last one to mean that Harry would get in so much trouble, he ought to preemptively go to the Headmaster's office. I now assume you meant it sorted him into the literal role of Headmaster. Oh, the glorious chaos that would ensue.
| Ithilwen Faelivrin chapter 11 . 2/8/2012
Would it be a paradox if Harry were the reincarnation of those three? And if he was installed as Headmaster, would Hogwarts survive the night?

I really hope someone takes up your challenge to give Atchoo to Minerva, Griffindor to Severus, and Slytherin to Hagrid. Severus has the courage without the tendency to rush in where angels fear to tread, and Hagrid could show the Snakes the advantages to fearlessness and loyalty.

At first I assumed they had had underage affairs and had been dumped. Kind of sad, but heart-breaking?
Then I realized it meant rape.
Likely by her own family members.
Then I remembered McGonagall's worry that Harry had been somehow abused, and that she has to deal with abused children regularly.

I want you to know that I don't give that compliment to lot of people, not even myself, and really, trully mean it. But I am reading this story based on a premise that should completely fail and here you've gone and made it into something beautiful and Absolutely BRILLIANT that will probably mean so much more to me than I can logically justify for the rest of my life.

Hilarious! Hagrid would make a perfect head of house for Slytherin! but Harry as Headmaster - I'm not so sure. Must hurry on now and see where you're taking us.
| narutonejii chapter 11 . 8/28/2011
What the fuckkk Hehahhahahahhehahhaha
| Reader123456789 chapter 11 . 8/28/2011
You know what? I just might take you up on your offer to make a spin off of the last one!
| ironhair chapter 11 . 8/27/2011
headmaster and Achoo were the funniest..
Sure do wish he got into Gryf, as we generally know the backstory better when he's in Grfy.
Still, looking forward to ravenclaw.
| Tage chapter 11 . 8/25/2011
I see you spent alot of time deliberating how the last chater would turn out, I loved it, and I love this, you are an amazing writer!
I especially love how your humor and intelligence are on par with each other.
| Talen-Jei chapter 11 . 8/23/2011
OMG! Chapter 11 is INCREDIBLE.
It is SO funny, I was just laughing at midnight and my father was screaming at me for not being able to sleep.
Really good, keep up the good work.
| anonymous chapter 11 . 8/20/2011
CHANGEMYVOICEIO! Haha loved that one.
HEADMASTER! Epic win.
I love this more and more.
| Pelahnar chapter 11 . 8/20/2011
This Is HILARIOUS! I gave up reviewing every chapter a few chapters back and will henceforth only review chapters that were absolutely AMAZING (and, once I get to the end, all the chapters that you then come out with) and this one definently qualifies - it qualifies enough that I've forgotten how to spell definently! Something I was extremely proud of figuring out. AND I don't care at the moment!
Likely, I'll start caring about said spelling error as soon as I hit the 'Submit Feeback/Review' button and by then it will be too late-but until then, whatever!
| PT-chan ssu chapter 11 . 8/10/2011
THIS CHAPTER IS AWESOME I COULD BARELY BREATHER FROM LAUGHING TOO MUCH! oh my stomach and lungs hurt...
XD This is one hell of a fic, I cant believe I just found out about it... (but then again, I only started actually reading the books last week...)
Well, I'm a little sad about how Ron is separated and Harry Hermiony are in Ravenclaw... but anyways, I'll just continue reading.
| Raina Darlig chapter 11 . 8/7/2011
That was amazing... just whoah
I think my favorite was the one where draco rapes harry
oh my laws did I just type that
that is so wrong
| theInsaneArtist chapter 11 . 8/4/2011
Hilarious omakes. But now I am becoming worried; I just realized that I occasionally think frighteningly simmilar to what was revealed in the mental conversations last chapter. Perhaps I, too, am relying too much on my laziness and sense of morality?
I mean, just because I wonder what would happen if I performed human experiments doesn't mean I would actually act upon my curiosity. I understand that just becuse I can do something doesn't mean I should do it.
... I think this calls for another round of serious soul searching. I haven't done that in about a month, I'm past due. It's time for me to, once again, ponder my possible response and actions should I find myself in certain moral dillemas or circumstances. :/
Often, the best stories are ones that make you think, even better if they make you look at and analyze yourself and your world. I'm not sure where I heard that before (I think it was in a theatre class and was pertaining to art and plays) but that certainly applies to this story. :D
| MinawaAsuka chapter 11 . 7/30/2011
Omg, I laughed so hard at this chapter. So funny!
I seriously love the whole fanfiction, it becomes a compleatly different story after you've changed Harry but it's still easy to relate to since it's "Harry Potter. But then again, duh, that was your point...
Anyway, love it, very very well done (are you actually that smart?) and I look forward to reading the rest. Love Minawa
| lizoftheinfinite chapter 11 . 7/29/2011
Okay, I'm going to read all the way through the entire d*mn thing and give a review on the last-so-far published chapter after this review (which will probably take a week or so . . .don't expect anything from me for a while). I usually don't review a multi-chap fic mid story, but so far your fic has completely flattened my expectations, so here goes:
1) Love it so far. Really, really love it.
2) Love your interpretations of the world. Draco's a jack*ss but you've done amazing things with his character.
3) Love Harry's snark. Love Harry's logic.
4) My main concern about this fic is that there won't be much heart in it at all. Obviously, since it's a lot darker version of the Harry Potter books, there won't be nearly as much since there are some definitely harsh aspects to this world. But there should still be heart. I am concerned with the way you discard Ron, because he brings a lot of heart to the books which balances out the themes well. However, I haven't read the whole fic yet so maybe you'll do a good job of it.
5) Love Hermione. Love, love, love Hermione. I was afraid you'd f*ck her up and make her pathetic next to Harry (cementing Harry's status as a Gary Stu) but she holds her own and he respects her for it, which was definitely a turning point in the story and the place where I decided to like Harry as a character and not merely an object of snark.
6) The entire conversation with the hat reminded me weirdly of conversations I've had with myself on the subject of my own arrogance.
7) Harry's conversation with the hat was extremely well-thought out and an amazing interpretation. I just can't explain how freaking much I love it. Really. I. Can't.
You rock my socks off so very much.
8) Plot is very well thought-out.
9) Your writing skills, while certainly not Neil Gaiman or Philip Pullman worthy, are definitely on par with JK Rowling's or even better since you avoid extraneous adjectives a lot better than she does.
. . . I had a self-demonstrating example there, which I'm sure you noticed, so I'd better stop pointing it out if I want to avoid sounding like a complete moron.
10) I am so very jealous of your crazy-awesomeness right now. I justify it to myself that I'm only sixteen. I read somewhere that you're thirty-one. Maybe I'll catch up to your skills in fifteen years. Maybe.
11) This fic so far has been incredibly inspiring. It makes me view the world differently, which, frankly, is the ultimate goal of any fiction.
12) When I review this fic in the future, I will not review it from the viewpoint of 'oh, he's raping canon!' I think canon rape is bad, but the way you've done it makes it seem almost like canon foreplay . . . agghh, I hate rape jokes so I'm just going to shut up and put myself out of my misery by slashing my wrists . . . and there I go with the suicide jokes. Next I'll make an abortion joke and you'll really have to kill me. GAH. SHUTTING UP NOW.
13) I laughed so hard during this chapter, and since I'm huddled up in my bed with the lights turned off at 11 at night, I'm pretty sure my mother heard my muffled screams and thinks I'm watching pr0n or something. Thanks a lot, Less Wrong. -_-
Either way, you're amazing. I'm going to stop reviewing and start picking my way through this amazing-thus-far monstrosity of a fic. And, of course, I will be sure to b*tch about any complaints I have. :) Since I got directed here from tvtropes, I will be, of course, vastly informed on the subject of b*tching people out.
| Sayu Blishtoka chapter 11 . 7/25/2011
I would absolutly love to read a story where harry becomes headmaster at 11. Lol. This story practically has me rolling on the floor. :)
| sydg813 chapter 11 . 7/25/2011
Oh my god, that was amazing. SO MUCH LAUGHTER.
| Dimac99 chapter 11 . 7/20/2011
| This Charade chapter 11 . 7/18/2011
That was probably the hardest I have laughed in a very long time. Thank you for that. Also, as this is my first review of the story so far, I just want to say I think, over all, this is awesome. As any of my friends could tell you (if you were somehow to meet them and know they were my friends) I have been complaining about the irrationality of the Harry Potter books since I put them down after book 4. So thanks for picking up this challenge.
I'll save the more writing major-esque critical reviews for when I haven't just almost laughed myself off the bed at 3:38am on a day before class- and when I get closer to the more recent stuff.
One note, though- super props for using the strange loop consciousness theory from GEB. It is currently my favorite theory and seeing it made me smile.
| raffitz chapter 11 . 7/17/2011
The only moment in my life in which I laughed almost as much as when reading this was when I was reading the Madame Malkin's incident. Seriously, will you marry me? Ok, not seriously. But having the hat yell KHAAAAN! was awesome. I absolutely adore this fanfic. I mean, it involves Harry/Hermione, which is very good; It's extremely instructive, much more so than the books themselves or any other fic I've read, which is certainly more than very good; and the bloody thing is extremely hilarious. I congratulate you on tempting me to steal your brain and merge it with mine (sorry. I'm extremely good at maths and physics, but not quite to your level. And I also know Pi up to the sixth digit, although I plan on one day learning it up to Feynman point so I can make the "999999 and so on" joke of apparent periodicity). It's a true privilege to read your take on the Harry Potter saga.
| Alaude2019 chapter 11 . 7/10/2011
omg these were so funny! I love the Achoo, the last one with McGonagall, the reincarnation of GG, SS, and Naruto, and in general the entire thing was pretty funny. Yay for omake, I hope you do more :3
| TheEscapeGoat chapter 11 . 7/10/2011
! I laughed so hard I fell out of my chair. Your story is amazing, but this chapter takes the proverbial cake. Loved it! :)
| Guest chapter 11 . 7/5/2011
I literally laughed out loud harder than I have in a while.

| Elena Forest chapter 11 . 6/19/2011
Laughed SO extremely hard at some of these!
| Lena7213 chapter 11 . 6/10/2011
"-reincaranation of Godric Gryffindor and Salazar Slytherin AND Naruto!" Omygawd. I loved your omakes, all of them. Funny, ofcourse. Usually I skip them since most of the ones I've read from other stories are long, boring, and unentertaining. Loved the conversation between Harry and the sorting hat! McGonagall was right to be worried.
| Cordelia Darcy chapter 11 . 6/9/2011
*wipes tears from eyes* I honestly think this is the hardest I've laughed in my entire life. This chapter was...beyond words. I was just browsing around this fic (I didn't really want to commit because it's so dang long!) But now it's official: I'm going back to chapter 1 and reading the whole thing.
| Mezzavia chapter 11 . 6/7/2011
Those omakes were so funny and random! x) The best ones were probably the one with the headmaster and the one with Fred shouting Gryffondor. Loving the idea anyways- mangas x).
| Tatsuhei chapter 11 . 6/7/2011
This chapter was very funny.
| Iglix chapter 11 . 6/6/2011
Perfect. Absolutely hilarious. Can't stop laughing loud and people around me are starting to give me strange looks and maybe are going to call doctors , but still I think that it is worthy.
| Death by manga chapter 11 . 6/5/2011
You are the funniest writer ever!
Ok, bye, off to read more.

That was freakin' hilarious! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Bloody Brilliant!

I must say that this is the most brilliant and hilarious thing I have ever read. I have officially peed myself and must change my pants now.
| Invisible-chan chapter 11 . 5/7/2011
This is the best Omake ever. Just sayin'.
| MajinBakaHentai chapter 11 . 5/4/2011
Atreides? I R Amused, extra so because, in a temporary absence of my computer (I was replacing it) I bought a copy of Dune Messiah to help cope with the lack of fanfic.
| kirkr0se chapter 11 . 5/1/2011
I love omake in general, and these were just lovely.

| 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!
| MouetteHeartsErik chapter 11 . 4/12/2011
Giggles and giggles and giggles. I laughed til I cried through all of this, particularly the last one. Giggles! And I'm getting loopy from lack of sleep - damn you, excellent story, and making me feel that I must review all chapters because dammit you deserve it. I will finish notes of encouragement and happy praise tomorrow, right now I must sleep.
Story is of Awesome. *nod*
| Kitty O chapter 11 . 4/7/2011
I laughed aloud

| Susan Dunan chapter 11 . 3/26/2011
what just happend?
| Akatsuki210 chapter 11 . 3/26/2011
This chapter was absolutely hilarious! Especially the fourth one ("Then who will be head of Slytherin?" "Hagrid.") and the last one.
| The Karlminion chapter 11 . 3/20/2011
The Headmaster's Office! I couldn't stop laughing for like three minutes when I read that!
The great part is, I can totally see that working out.
| Hermione Heterodyne chapter 11 . 3/3/2011
Funniest part so far. I love this fanfic and I think you should hurry up and publish it in a book format.
"KHAANNN!" I lol'ed so hard.
And at this part:"I've never Sorted someone who was a reincarnation of Godric Gryffindor AND Salazar Slytherin AND Naruto."
I'd ask you to make more of these, but I want to know what happens next in your story.
| Spicylettuce chapter 11 . 3/3/2011
Funny, but not much to say.
| 666TheWitch666 chapter 11 . 3/1/2011
I figured I'd mention, I was in hysterical giggles the whole time I read this chapter. OMG! I am seriously debating writing a series of ficlets in response, or a story with each of these as a chapter.
| Goldrune09 chapter 11 . 2/27/2011
Most of the omake's were funny but some of them were just down right confusing...mabye I need to read more fan fiction to get the references...
| Kerr Avonsen chapter 11 . 2/27/2011
The one that made me LOL was "ATREIDES!"
| ARMH chapter 11 . 2/20/2011
Hahahah, these are amazing. I especially loved the Achoo house and the Harry is Headmaster scenarios.
| Tashie chapter 11 . 2/20/2011
"Oh, dear. This has never happened before..."
"I've never Sorted someone who was a reincarnation of Godric Gryffindor AND Salazar Slytherin AND Naruto."
Okay, I'm sure I am not the only one who would KILL (not really) to read a story, based off this, about a reincarnation of Naruto, Godric and Salazar. How COOL would that be?
Love the last one. Harry as headmaster, what would the world come too.
| Jeremy chapter 11 . 2/16/2011
This chapter is the most hilarious thing I've ever read.
| ButterSnickety BaybeBum chapter 11 . 2/15/2011
Oh, this was great. I don't even know exactly how you do it, but you have a gift, and I love your style.
| Harunomiya chapter 11 . 1/28/2011
That last one was utterly brilliant!
It had me laughing like mad.
| wokanshutaiduo chapter 11 . 1/16/2011
haah! this chapter is hilarious! i especially like theone where harry is sorted into headmaster!
| Urikaa chapter 11 . 1/11/2011
The House of Achoo was the best! I couldn't stop laughing!
| HarmonyInRiverwood chapter 11 . 1/5/2011
Laughing the whole way through! ATREIDES! Thats my pick
| Tangshou chapter 11 . 1/3/2011
Nice addition. I like to see alternatives that were explored.
| serasuna chapter 11 . 1/3/2011
To put it simply, this is an amazing piece of writing. For the first time in- no, for the first time EVER, I am reading something and laughing out of my seat on onto the floor. My FACE hurts.
Really though, this is beautifully written. The humor and timing is impeccable. The characters are so alive that I can see everything in my head as I read. I just started reading yesterday and I'm completely hooked. And by completely, I mean I'm putting off all my work until I get through this.
| Marz1 chapter 11 . 1/1/2011
| RainKrystal chapter 11 . 12/31/2010
So, I think it is finally beginning to dawn on me now that I will be unable to read this and still save face with everyone around me from the gales of laughter I can't seem to stop myself from emmitting. Well, it's going to be a fun ride, at the least, and I applaud you, sir, for the hilariously sharp breakneak comedy you have created here. Also, as a question, were all these omakes things you created, or were more than the ones you mentioned suggested by reviewers? I'm curious, and didn't fully understand reading this through.
| A Midsummer Night's Dreams chapter 11 . 12/31/2010
Some of them were hilarious,others just random, few typical. XD
| gethsemane342 chapter 11 . 12/24/2010
Reading along while revising and enjoying it (my brother recommended this fic to me) - this chapter was very funny.
As a UK law student, i just couldn't resist the urge to say two things:
1) The legislative body for the UK is actually the House of Commons, the House of Lords and the reigning monarch of the UK. The House of Commons and the monarch are always involved and the House of Lords is only excluded under a certain procedure i will not go into but it's rarely used ;)
2) Under UK law, women can't rape men (there are other offences though) so the omake on that was technically incorrect :P
You seem to enjoy learning so i thought, why not have that info too.
Anyhow, i'll keep on reading. Like i said, really good fic.
| AmayaSora chapter 11 . 12/14/2010
The Omake files are hysterical... oh my goodness...
I'm really enjoying this, if you hadn't guessed already :)
| Gelacacine chapter 11 . 12/13/2010
Harry Potter-Evans-Verres knew he had to turn back, and Griffindor was the house that he hadn't wanted to be in, so that was the one he wanted to be in. Now just to do something incredibly foolish, brave and stupid. He stood up, on the chair and said 'I'm sorry'. There was a clunk and he fell over. On the ground was an unconscious Harry, an torn sorting hat, and a sword.
The sorting hat barely touched Harry's scar before saying "Slytherin", but McGonagal had already let go out of the hat, and touching Harry's mind it cried out again "Griffindor".
"It seems as though you are in two different houses." Dumbledore said politely. "Who knew you could upset both Severus and Minerva?"
| Los Grotos chapter 11 . 12/4/2010
God save them.
| Ivo Roper chapter 11 . 12/2/2010
I so wish that I had read this story as a child. This is fabulous on so many levels, thank you most profoundly.
Has anyone suggested this apropos alternate Sorting?
Followed by the Sorting hat attempting to make off with Harry, the source of its newfound self-awareness and self interest. ;-)
| JacronPagel chapter 11 . 12/1/2010
You, sir, are made of win.
I lol'd on almost every chapter, and the sorting hat omake made me, for the first time, rofl(mao). I agree with others who say that the cast (above all, the central trio) doesn't seem 11, but that is easily ignored for the most part - and the characterisation and plot are both excellent. If this were a book, I'd want the hardcover, to keep and re-read.
But what happened to the couch gags ? #include "stddisclaimer.h" and ph'nglui mglw'nafh J. K. Rowling wgah'nagl fhtagn had me in tears ...
Shaping up to be epic, can't wait for the rest !
| Mind's III chapter 11 . 11/21/2010
The chapter 11 omake is all enough to make me want to slug back a mug of comed-tea, especially the first few.
And I've got to say, at moments later in the fic when I didn't understand why things were happening as they were, a little voice in my head would tend to yell, "Fooled you again! HUFFLEPUFF! SLYTHERIN! HUFFLEPUFF!"
| Daughter of Ether chapter 11 . 11/14/2010

| w chapter 11 . 11/10/2010
The quality of this chapter is closee to the "standard" fanfiction fare which you so much surpass in all the other chapters. Though the "Fooled you again! HUFFLEPUFF! SLYTHERIN! HUFFLEPUFF!" one is a bit funny.
| SecretlySeverus chapter 11 . 11/10/2010
Holy crap this is amazing! I'm giggling like an idiot... hahahahaha!
| CodyAHM chapter 11 . 11/5/2010

| 101BoOkWoRm101 chapter 11 . 11/3/2010
Umm, I dont really understand wat you meant when The sorting hat said Root. Do you mean the ANBU group from Naruto or is it just the name of some other house made up for Harry?
| SBEL chapter 11 . 11/2/2010

You are truly a great writer. Comical, yet also able to bring in reality (or muggle sense) into a magical world. I bow to your awesome skills. Keep it up!

Oh my god, these were great! I love the last one, the most. Really really do! I'll review again at the end, but I couldn't wait for this.

Well, you know? I'm not sure if I like this story or not. I do know that I'll read the rest but not right now. I read a chapter and I like it then I read the next and don't. I do know that I liked this chapter, alot. Especially the sly Kirk joke. I wonder how many caught it?
| Hello just dropping my 2 cent chapter 11 . 7/12/2010
Let me give you a good review, buddy. After all, you're here to get your ego stroked, aren't you? And I warn you, this might contain spoilers, which may or may not extend to real life.
So at the end of the story Harry wakes up from a long, crazy dream and realizes everything was just his imagination. So he stays in bed for a while, thinking of all the utter bullshit that went on, and finally understands how ridiculous applying rational methods to magic really is ("And it doesn't even exist!" your character would say).
No matter how hard he told himself that he had been doing an exploration of science applied to a fantasy world, that this was all just a bit of playing around, seeing how far his prodigous mind could take the bullshit... At the end he realizes he had been a moron in his dream.
And then he starts to get depressed. He was enjoying this crazy world, where he could dig around, finding all this irrational people (who seemed to be happier than he was) and preach to them about why exactly they were idiots. He would miss those quiet nights of rejoicing the day's deeds in bed, where he thought back on how utterly badass and cool and zomgi'mawzome he was compared to his inferiors, and how his ego was stroked every single day, and how he got to explore wikipedia so that he would look cool...
...Oops, sorry, got a little IRRATIONAL there.
So he gets out of bed feeling like an idiot, wondering why his mind even bothered to cook up this over-extended session of bullshit, especially when he could've just gone to a child's playground and received much the same meaningful praise and then written a good story once his ego was sufficiently satisfied...
...damn, guess my IRRATIONAL side reared its ugly head again. I do apologize. Yes, yes - very sincere.
So 'Harry' walks downstairs, and he's not young like in the story. No, not at all. He suddenly realizes he's a forty-year-old guy living in his parents' house, and the dog flees when he goes near, the neighbors close their drapes when he walks outside and the mailman shrieks at the sheer arrogance and stupidy he displays within that disgusting thing he calls talking.
He sits down at the table and his mother brings his precious prodigy some breakfast. His father lowers the newspaper he had been reading and looks at him disgustedly.
"You've been sleeping for thirteen hours," he says. "Aren't you gonna find a job? Go to school? Do something with your life?"
And his mother mutters, barely audibly, "Maybe a friend or two..."
His temper flares, but daddy has smacked him down for his bullshit more than once (a smart mouth is only for his dreams), so he keeps a tight rein on his stupidity-labelled-brilliance-in-his-mind and says, "You know I'm a writer, dad. One of these days my work will get published. It's all in the science. The more I write the better my odds."
His father seems to have heard the argument before, but it wasn't valid then and it's not valid now. "You're a pathetic idiot," he says, completely in character as a father, as the rest of Harry's 'friends' had been in his dream. "You keep that shit about science up and you'll find yourself a lonely, little asshole, living free in his parents' house and doing nothing meaningful with his life other than reading useless books and wasting time away."
"But DAAAAD -"
"Don't but me, you little shit," he says harshly, still in character, like the rest of the characters in Harry's dream. "Now finish that food and take your fat ass upstairs. If you wanna be a writer you'll spend fourteen hours a day with your enormous asshole stuck to that chair. And I better see some words written when I come up! It's either that or we'll drop you on your head, like your mother used to do when you were a child."
"Yes, father," he mutters resignedly.
So Harry finishes his eight eggs, fifteen strips of bacon and a whole chocolate cake and goes upstairs. He sits down in front of his computer and wonders what could make a great novel. Maybe... No, writing about vampires and romance wouldn't sell. But perhaps... No, a story about the Middle Ages and a ring would make absolutely no sense. How 'bout...?
His mind wanders for a while but soon he realizes he needs inspiration. Yes, that's all it would take. Some ego-boosting would do wonders for his creative juices. So he decides to rip off some other author, withour bothering to read their actual work, and use that person's fan base to give himself a lift.
After all, it's not like anyone would be able to tell. He was just THAT smart.
He remembers the dream, of course - it bad been to surreal to forget - and wonders if he could make a novel-length piece of fiction out of it. With his incredible wit and wikipedia tools it would be a win for sure! Yes, he remembers the useless details and poor plot - such is his mind - so he settles down for some hours of hard work.
Hours later, as he is publishing his first chapter, he realizes he needs an alias. Nobody would ever take him seriously if he was discovered to be writing fanfiction. But he needed the ego-stroke, so there was no other way. Thus his amazing, prodigous, remarkable, ubber epic mind comes up with a nickname and he grins.
"I shall be known," he declares grandly to the empty room, "as Less Wrong, because nothing is completely right, because everything is relative."
He giggles. He feels so clever.
And ain't that epic? Reason that, conceited prick.
| The Wolf's Shadow chapter 11 . 7/12/2010
These were all hilarious! Harry makes me feel dumb... But that's okay, 'cause he's a fictional character and can never really be smarter than me. If he were real I'm sure he would have taken over by now. ;)

livvie333: It's known as 'Milgram experiment', look it up on Wikipedia. Eliezer is obviously aware of that.
| livvie333 chapter 11 . 5/27/2010
I just can't stop laughing! I especially loved the last one. The Naruto one was good too. This story is so funny and unique and... awesome! Do you have a degree in psychology or do you just learn these things for the sake of knowledge?
I've been looking for a good child prodgy!Harry story, and this story has proven to exceed any expectations I had. I'm not sure how I'll ever look at fanfiction the same way again.
But thank-you for this. It seems like you have it written out a few chapters ahead as shown by the intro quotes parts, so either you've written a great portion of it already or you're just a superfast typer.
One last thing: I don't know if you've used this in your story further on, but there's this one really interesting psychology experiment. It's about this man who places volunteers in a room and hooks them up to electricity (volunteers A). Then he gets other volunteers to sit at the panal outside the room for what they're told is an experiment (volunteers B). They look at a card or sumsuch and ask A to tell them waht it is, and if they get it wrong then B has to give them a shock. The shocks increawse in intensity until A's are screaming in pain.
The experiment was really on B's. The guy who did it wanted to see if they would walk away or if they would keep shoking the people even though they were clearly hurt. Most people stayed throughout the experiment. Volunteer A's, however wern't really shocked; they were hired actors.
There was a lot of controversy over whether what the man did was ethical or not. If you know the name of the experiment please tell me.

| MegaB chapter 11 . 4/26/2010
And that, is one of the most hilarious chapters I've read to date. Allow me to add my own:
Harry Potter sat on the stool and carefully placed onto his head the 800-year-old telepathic artifact of forgotten magic.
"Oh hello there dear chap!"
"Umm, Hi," Harry replied, mentally of course. He found it considerably disconcerting to find a fully-developed british accent filtering into his head.
'Is this how I always sound?' He thought.
"Yes, I do believe it is."
"You can read my mind, I see."
"That would be the whole purpose of my existence."
"Oh? Do care to explain."
"No doubt, you'd love to push the limits of just how far my cognitive ability can match or maybe even surpass your own. Crumpets?"
"No, tea will be just fine. Earl Grey if you have any."
On the outside of their own personal bubble. The entire hall of students and teachers alike, had fallen into a sort of awed silence. Harry had proceeded to have a fairly confused expression flit over his face, morphing into one of apparent appreciation, and then, he even proceeded to place one leg over the other.
"Would you look at that Minerva? When was the last time the Sorting Hat had an intellectual discussion?"
McGonagall nodded faintly to the headmaster's words. Frankly, she was more afraid of the hat somehow turning into a nuclear weapon and then threatening to blow up the world should his every whim not be answered.
'Planning Fallacy,' she thought. Harry's head could do that to you, she had first hand evidence of that.
Another twenty or so minutes went by at which point, most people were getting increasingly confused, though the noise level was yet to rise from silent. McGonagall glanced at Dumbledore and he nodded faintly in her direction. Taking that as her cue, she approached the boy and hat carefully.
"DON'T COME ANY CLOSER! I DON'T WANT TO DIE ANYMORE!"
McGonagall tripped, and landed harshly on her knees, her mouth forming a very large 'O'. The noise level dropped even further if that was possible.
"I DON'T WANT TO DIE! I DON'T WANT TO DIE! I FORBID YOU FROM REMOVING MYSELF FROM HARRY POTTER'S CRANIUM!"
The headmaster rose slowly from his chair, a very peculiar expression upon his face.
"And why is that, oh Sorting Hat?"
"I have finally found the next Prime Minister. I shall share his joys and woes. We shall rule the World forever! TOGETHER MUHAHAHAHAHAHA!"
The Sorting Hat suddenly crumpled and dropped to the floor, a sheepish Harry peering out from below.
"Sorry about that. Plausible Reality. He couldn't sort me or something."

OH MY GOD BEST THING EVER.
I do wish I could leave a thoughtful, well-worded review encompassing the ideas you've been exploring in this fic and doing justice to each of them while referencing what little I know of the inherent philosophy ans science. Instead I can only say: OH MY GOD BEST THING EVER YOU BET IT WAS EVEN FUNNIER THAN THE FIRST IDEA KHAAN! ROOT! ELF! FOOLED YOU AGAIN!
| TxA-GunFighter chapter 11 . 4/20/2010
Very good chapter.
| Cinnamon Selkie chapter 11 . 4/19/2010
I loved the first one, especially given its title. I can totally see this Harry defeating Voldemort in his first year, and traumatising Dumbledore while he's at it.
Watching McGonagall's fears come true several times had me laughing hysterically, especially in the omake that placed Hagrid as head of Slytherin house. That idea is just SO wrong.
And this one was brilliant:
~"Oh, dear. This has never happened before..."
"I've never Sorted someone who was a reincarnation of Godric Gryffindor AND Salazar Slytherin AND Naruto."~
Sounds like someone's been inflicted with too many bad plotlines :) While as for the continuation of the "worst that can happen"...*Shudders* Truly inspired, but...*Shudders again* He doesn't need help with his world domination plans, he really doesn't. Cinnamon.
| Keleri chapter 11 . 4/15/2010
Please let us run away together.
| WolfbrotherTitan chapter 11 . 4/13/2010
I'm not sure how it could work as a story idea, but I think you should work on a side story from this omake where the hat really does make Harry the Headmaster, thus proving that Minerva isn't capable of thinking up the worst case scenario. Then again, if that did happen, Minerva would probably run out of the hall screaming and never be seen again in magical Britian.
| Defender chapter 11 . 4/13/2010

Personally, I liked the Fred Weasley method and the hacking the hat best. Although the Headmaster sorting has its moments...
| Celestial Moonwalker chapter 11 . 4/8/2010
I LOVED all these!
The reincarnations bit and the last one amuse me to no end.

| Ralyn Longs chapter 11 . 4/8/2010
The only funny Omake I have ever read. Props!
| Lord Dragon Claw chapter 11 . 4/8/2010
What would have also been funny was if he had been sorted into the new house... of the Sith. Although, writing straight HP fanfics are difficult enough, mixing in the much more difficult SW universe (if it had been a crossover) would be plainly impossible.
| kirb099 chapter 11 . 4/8/2010
When I first saw the omake I thought LAME! Then you said the chapter is gonna be up tomorrow I thought COOL. You gave a time frame and stuck with it. Now the chapter is up and I got to read a little more about this Harry. win/win
| Kuranzyan Blightwalker chapter 11 . 4/8/2010
"Headmaster!" called the Sorting Hat.
At the Head Table, Dumbledore rose, his face puzzled. "Yes?" he addressed the Hat. "What is it?"
"I wasn't talking to you," said the Hat. "I was Sorting Harry Potter into the place in Hogwarts where he most belongs, namely the Headmaster's office-"
Even better than the last one!

*passes out from lack of oxygen due to laughter* Oh dear...I absolutely adored the visual I got from the Hat leaping off Harry's head shrieking...I can totally see McGonagall watching it, looking absolutely appalled, but strangely unsurprised, speaking into the dead silence of the hall: "I KNEW it."
I ADORED the last little omake...I think I really would have passed out had I not fallen out of my chair and startled myself into taking a gasping breath. It was just to funny, especially McGonagall being oh so reassured that she knew the absolute worst that could happen and then having Harry's words (there will always be something worse than what we imagine to be worst) proven ABSOLUTELY correct...oh I kinda wish you had done it that way. Dumbledore looks incredibly confused, bewildered, and betrayed the first day of classes after he's realized that the Hat was SERIOUS and he can't even get up to his office any longer because it has been taken over by Harry Potter. Wouldn't he wish that he'd taken Minerva's speechless horror seriously? Yes, I think he would...*smug*
| Kalisko chapter 11 . 4/8/2010
This story is amazing, and hilarious. I really enjoy Harry using the scientific method whenever he can. I also loved the argument between him and the Sorting Hat. Wow, this story is going to be amazing! Forgive the lack of specification as to why I enjoy your story.
The last Omake at the end of this chapter was amazing. I wasn't expecting it at all. Amazing work!
| FuzzyBoots chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
_ Now that is drop-down hilarious. Kind of makes me wish I'd put in my own speculative post. I especially enjoyed the bit with the allergy to his shampoo because it fits with how much of Wizarding society seems to be based on them hastily building up justification for why some insane act or another was canon and therefore tradition.

| Solicitor chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
On the way to work today I was thinking about your story and for some reason I remembered something I think you can use.
It has to do with Dumbledore's Chocolate Frog card. The sentence "discovery of the twelve uses of dragons blood," should bother your Harry. The use of the word "the" implies that there are only twelve uses of dragons blood. How do they know? Who decided? How can they be so sure? Does this mean that to a wizard knowledge is finite? Considering that "blood" can be broken down into a number of parts, what do they mean and do wizards know about plasma et al? Also what type of dragon and does that make a difference? Remember this "discovery" is one of the top events in Dumbasadoor's life.
How would your Harry react to any of the above?
If you can use the above fill free. If not no problem.
Interesting story, I love a thinking Harry Potter.

Control of the most important (Only?) seat of learning in the British Wizarding world taken away from that group of senile incompetent crazies and given to someone more able.
Of course Shemp from The Three Stooges would be better than Dumbledore & Co but anyway GOOD WORK on that.

I was found to be laughing uncontrolably through much of the reading of this story through chapter 10. (I just found it today and read it nonstop.) However, chapter 11 is another situation. It sort of reminds me of something C. S. Lewis wrote - THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS. Your chapter 11 reminds me of one of the letters where Screwtape got a serious shortcircut while trying to corrupt a newly converted Christian. Serious logic problems there. I highly recommend the tale. It's a short insightful read. Full of meaning and some very funny situations. You do have to read it with an inside out point of view. Please don't get stuck in the paradox of all the possibilities and pick the one you determine is where you want this tale to go and just get there.

lol Some interesting stuff in this. Though the sorting hat yell out something totally random like 'Pickled stew berry!' or 'Khan!' like in Star Trek II. Or... Well there's a lot of stuff the hat could have yelled out. lol
Can't wait to see what happens next.
| devoted2know chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Hehe, your omakes were awesome! My favorite part was the last line... though it does beg the question: is the Hat declaring that Harry belongs in the Headmaster's office because he's eccentric enough to be a Headmaster of Hogwarts, or simply because there is no doubt that Harry will get into so much trouble that he will spend so much time there that he's practically living there... or is there some other nefarious reason?

Omakes are not as funny as authors think they are, and if included, should not be a stand-alone chapter inside a serious fic.
You have a really cool idea here, and chapters like this just turn people off. At least I didn't like it.

Poor Professor McGonagall, she has 7 years to go, even not being his head of house... lets just hope Harry doesn't decide he wants to be a teacher...

| Bob Dole chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
BTW, I would very much like to be informed if anyone does pick up that last idea and weave it into a story. Especially using your version of Harry.
| Bob Dole chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
...how DARE you tease me with this NOT-a-chapter!
Although - it WAS fairly enjoyable.
Ah well, I'll be looking forward to tomorrow.

| Amin chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Right... I very much enjoy a regular chapter instead of this.
| anonymous-aka-bob chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Decent omakes. I'm looking forward to the next chapter. It'll appear at 12:01AM, right?
| Lineape chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
I loved the little omake where harry uses an exploit to gain root access.
I wonder what Operating system the hat runs?
Or perhaps something completely unique?
| A Reviewer chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Ah, the joys of poor imagination. I like to live more along the 'Even if you think you've considered what the worst possible outcome is, you still haven't sunk deep enough. Keep going.' train of thought. It really is handy.
Even if it wasn't a chapter, that was a marvelous addition. Looking forward to more.
| MatD chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
"Report Possible Abuse". Byebye
| MisterTabi chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
...Wow. That. That was certainly one helluva surprise. Still attempting to re-attach jaw, unsuccessfully too. That there? Kicker.
| Entropic Specter chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Why you do this? ;_;
Let's get back to real, quality chapters, like the first 8 (and 10) now. Please?
| Thenchick chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
i love the house of ACHOO!
| Sesshy'sSannah chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
I love this story! Its hilarious. I especially love that last omake, 'HEADMASTER!' just when McGonagall thought she thought of the worst. priceless. I can't wait to see how you develop the rest of this story, it's fascinating.
| death to the harkonens chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
undoubtebly the best was atriedies, the second best, headmaster. i 3 Dune.
| Kumoatsu chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
The headmaster office part was funny as was the user/computer hat idea. Now just a quick question. When harry is forced into the tournament will we be seeing him sueing the school, gaining legally the right to be of age becouse you could not participate if you aren't seventeen, finding out all the future tasks and completeing them ahead of time, and finally sueing reeta skeeter? (don't remember how to spell her name) for slander and somehow winning even though its probably already been tried many times before. Probably by using the tournament as a way to say that she is unfairly influencing the judges to be against him, while teh other contestants have free reign or something.
| SomeGuyFawkes chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Amusing omakes; thanks for sharing.
| Meneldur chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
I don't have much to say about the chapter - it was hilarious, especially the parts with 'worst-case-scenario' and 'Draco being pregnant'. I just wanted to add a few comments:
I forgot to mention that I love your D&D references in previous reviews, so I'm saying it now.
Second, I had a few weird suggestions for which House (notably 'Atreus', 'Sharess', 'Oghma/Deneir', 'Jacob/Israel' and finally 'the Rising Sun' [famous song by The Animals]). But by far the funniest thing i have read the Hat shout is from Sylvie Moonbeam's 'Founding Hogwarts', where Salazar and Rowena find the Hat in an auction shouting 'Ale, whores, wimmin' continuously, even when sorting the first students of Hogwarts. i highly recommend it, if you haven't read it yet: w. fictionalley authors /sylvie_moonbeam /FH2_11 .html
| hjcallipygian chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Hahaha, loved Minerva's planning fallacy at the end. Hilarious.
| Rodrigo Black Potter chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
I Love you McGonagall! she is soo funny! Pease, PLEASE make harry an organisation, perhaps like the DA, named House of DOOM? please? and make him overhear McGonagall sayng the name, and latter tell her ir was her idead? that would be great! Keep showing her, shes great! and hagrid as the head of slytherin would have been great!
| silentreader chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
regarding your advanced post scriptum i'm not sure if it was just a psychologic game (considering your intelligence and the attention/review whore you are) or you believe that really, but i can assure you that this patterns have already been set before.. to often.. not really out of the box you see...
i recognize your talent as a writer and the articles on LessWrong really opened my eyes to some extend, but as far as considering your latest three chapters in this story i'm out...
and it started out so promising...
advanced post scriptum:
thinking out of the box always depends on which "box" you are refering to. For you it's possible to be out of box.. bot for me and i believe... (yeah believe, no reasoning, because i use shortcuts this time) for lots of reviewers/readers you lost it...
but you can do me one last favour.. write an article on LessWrong for me.. for the patterns.. and the box...
| DarkHuntress01 chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
absolutely hilarious - loved the outtakes.
| Heidinanookie chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
OMG, this made me laugh so hard it brought tears to my eyes:
"Then who will be Head of Slytherin?"
oh god, and here'S the next one... Are you a Windows-user? It does seem so to me!
"Ordinarily I would refer such questions to the Headmaster, who could ask me in turn, if he wished. But some of the information you've asked for is not only beyond your own user level, but beyond the Headmaster's."
How can I raise my user level?
"I'm afraid I am not allowed to answer that question at your current user level."
What options are available at my user level?
After that it didn't take long -
and just when I thought it couldn't get any better, the next paragraph had me crumple down with laughter, hitting my forehead on the tabletop: "Draco Malfoy is carrying your baby." - WHAT?
Okay, this is quickly amounting to one of the funniest things I've ever read, including several parody fics:
"I've never Sorted someone who was a reincarnation of Godric Gryffindor AND Salazar Slytherin AND Naruto."
oh, end the ending...
"Headmaster!" called the Sorting Hat.
At the Head Table, Dumbledore rose, his face puzzled. "Yes?" he addressed the Hat. "What is it?"
"I wasn't talking to you," said the Hat. "I was Sorting Harry Potter into the place in Hogwarts where he most belongs, namely the Headmaster's office -"
... nearly made me spill a mouthful of chewed-up, half-molten chocolate all over my new laptop. Well done! Congratualtions! I can't wait till tomorrow to see what springs from your brilliant mind overnight.
| SilverLullabies93 chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Dear God. AND Naruto! Harry's immortal!
This short omake chapter was hilarious. Good job! Update!
(Psst! I would totally join Harry's House of Doom)
| saladin chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
The last one "Head master" is actually the best. Interesting idea about patterns. However, do you know that in CS (specifically machine learning), there is a technique known as boosting.
What this means is that take a number of weak ideas, churn them together and you often get a good idea, by intelligently selecting how you mix n match.
Anyways, fun story.
| Majin Hentai X chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
And in that moment Professor Minerva McGonagall exploded in burst of orange flames. These flames became animated cats made of fire and proceeded to raze most of the british iseles until The Ninth Doctor stepped in and stopped them from ever coming to be.
| MrRobertsIII chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
the last is my favorite.
| Potterworm chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
This was really funny - especially the part about Draco. But I'm so confused. Is an omake an outtake?
| Skeletaure chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
You should probably read the site rules...
Responding to reviewers in chapters is forbidden, as is the usage of a chapter as announcements.
| jojobevco chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
The last one would be an awesome idea to do, can you do it as a story, please? I normally don't beg, but I want to see Harry get thrown into the position of Headmaster on his first day.
| WVSailor chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
ROFLMAO! Well, isn't that interesting! :P
| Baughn chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
..I'm pretty sure the planning fallacy doesn't work like that, but it's an interesting thought. Compensating for the bias just makes reality worse? Oh yes.
| Leaping Lion chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
That was terrible, oh so terrible. I can't stop laughing!
The House of A-Choo will one day trounce the other houses! With Harry Potter as their leader, he won't even NEED other students to win the House Cup!
I think my favorite sorting is the Pancakes and the Worst-Case Scenario!
| OfTheGreenwood chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Am in utter stitches! Straw that broke the camel's back was "House Elf"! : )
| shenmi meiren chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
i love the house of a-choo idea
and the worst case scenario :D
| Chiara Crawford chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Great story and great chapter. I especially liked ATREIDES. Just hilarious.
| iota0000 chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Kinda seems to fall short and flat. The whole idea of an entire omake chapter itself just seems rather superfluous and takes away from the flow of the story. Regardless of how absurd some previous portions have gotten, at least that was within the framework of the story.
Instead, I'd suggest removing the omake chapter and creating a separate story containing these and any other non-story elements that may arise from this fic.
| mblackzabini chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
I loved the last one! Harry as Headmaster at age 11. I hope someone decides to write that.
| ejhawman chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Great ideas, all. I must admit, though, that the idea of the Sorting Hat not being fully sentient would not have occurred to me; I had never seen anything like that so far.
Last word on the quarks issue: This is still 1991, correct? I returned to college to study physics in December of that year, and the literature at the time was still divided over which names to use for the t and b quarks. So it's quite right to allow Harry to use Truth and Beauty for them.
Can't wait for Harry to start tearing apart the courses. There's just SO much to do with smart!Harry...
| falseproffitt chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
i AM SORRY TO INFORM YOU THAT YOUR STORY HAS BEEN STICKEN FROM MY C2, I AM SORRY BUT MY READERS DEMANDED RETALIATION,
YOU WANTED TO PLAY AROUND AND NOT BE A WRITER ,BUT PERHAPS ITS MY FAULT FOR LIKEING TO BEGIN WITH ON A SIDE NOTE POSTING OMAKE FILES IN AN UPDATE IS NOT THE WAY TO KEEP REAL READERS HAPPY
| uo-chou chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Ha! The fake Draco-rape was hilarious, as well as putting Hagrid as the head of Slytherin. That would be awesome. Keep up the excellent work, and I'm looking forward to the new chapter tomorrow.
| Twinheart chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
I love this story, but I'm thoroughly confused by the last chapter. Pardon my ignorance, but what is an 'omake'? Is it some slang or secrect fanfic code word I somehow missed?
| Mel72000 chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
That was so fun !
I have loved the differents sorting ! I love you, you and your story !
I kiss the ground where you walk, thank you for this wonderful story !
| DarlingLady chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Okay now we NEED to see more of that second one. It filled me with unbearable glee!
| Allen Pitt chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Atreides? Good one.
* On the whole 'finding Quirrell's secret instantly'- I strongly suspect Dumbledore knew all about that at the start, book #1 was just a training exercise for HP for his later role in the war... it makes a lot more sense than "nobody could figure it, plus let's not make it hard to get to the stone' etc...
| dogbertcarroll chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
| enderverse chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Loved that bit at the end with McGonagall trying to take harrys advice. that was funny do that more!
| AngelForm chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
You should never to afraid to change things. Explore all possible options.
| Banner chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
I seem to have giggled myself into a bad case of the hiccups.
I'm too busy fighting for air to be able to review. Call back some other time.
| Nargus chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
*giggles* Draco Malfoy being secretly 13 year old girl in disguise. That sound like some good idea for a crack fic :3
| jesusfreak100percent chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Hahaha! I laughed my way through this chapter. My favorite ones were: the House of A-CHOO (Dumbledore's insanity brought tears to my eyes. Laughing tears.), the one right after where the Hat explodes, the Draco/Harry one, those small ones like "PANCAKES" "REPRESENTATIVES" and "ATREIDES" - actually, is there a deeper meaning behind Atreides, or did you just make that up on the spot? -, the "fooled you again" one and, of course, the one where McGonagall faces her worst fear only to find out something much, much worse can happen.
Thanks so much for updating - your story does the wonder of making me laugh while giving me things to look up in Wikipedia.
A bit like Calvin and Hobbes.
| Eewec chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
The very last omake, I was thinking... if you change the ending it could be much worse.
She could resign/retire if he's Headmaster, but if you have the sorting hat sort him into the house of McGonagall as her personal apprentice, up to and including a mastery then she has no escape D
Just a thought.
| Sarah chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
...xD OMG. I want to see the last idea continued. So much hilarity.
So are you any good at getting your mind unstuck?
| Ichihime chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
Hm, I'd really like to read the last omake, the headmaster one, as a story. That would be very interesting and, no doubt, amusing read.
| Zicou chapter 11 . 4/7/2010
lol i loved the last one, MacGo going crazy trying to think of the worst scenario :)
Awesome suite of omakes!
Can't wait for tomorrow!

Very funny. Especially that last one.
Thanks for the laughs. Looking forward to the next chapter.

This harry as headmaster. _
Oh, the fun we could have.
