I liked this story, It's well written & readable & it has a definite HPMOR vibe
There are a few errors of punctuation but not enough to really distract from the story, if you like HPMOR you will probably like this

This is at once a disfigurement of both MoR and Ender's Game.

This story is amazing. Even though you are not as good a writer as Eliezer Yudkowsky, especially when it comes to writing other people's characters, you have done what I would have believed impossible: you have shown an interesting Quidditch game, which I previously thought was an oxymoron. I like your "look for the snitch upside down" strategy in particular, because that's definitely usable in canon (while I don't think Bludgers or Snitch are really predictable enough to control that precisely without at least minor injuries in-game, and I think the hoops would be magically reinforced to withstand Bludger attacks, and the attacks would be more likely to tear the post out of the ground than break the post even without reinforcement). I also agree with another commenter that we play games for fun, and Harry should have at least tried that guess since your point doesn't seem to be to make him realize that.

Space after " sign is unnecessary.

Hi Deshwitat03,

You have read 'Hajime no Ippo'? Nice! It's a really amazing work, and improves continuously for about 700 chapters or so.
Another manga on sports, particularly for real life sports psychology is 'Baby steps', also highly recommended.
Thanks a lot for your review of this chapter. You are right, having something in mind and conveying it is an interesting and crucial problem. I don't think anybody ever gets it completely right, but forums like fanfiction help a lot in experimenting. Thus, every review is a crucial feedback and helps in understanding the craft of writing and its effects better. So thanks again for the review of this chapter.
Black Logician.

Hi I realize this story is long since finished and how small chances are for you to actually read this but anyway.
I really enjoyed your spin off so far. The idea of FlooBook is quite briliant. When I read the names you gave Harry and Draco as the commentators I didn't believe you were pulling that one and suspected it to be a coincidence but at the and I really had to laugh at Dumbles admitting he knew about the manga and in the same sentence taking the name of that grumpy old coach which makes sense in a twisted kinda way.
I know how hard it is to write a story even if you have it in your mind all figured out as i tried myself and must admit to failing misserably.
All in all, my respect to you and keep up the good work.

This is beautiful and amazing. Please convince Less Wrong to make it canon. Some of the formatting made it occasionally ambiguous as to who the speaker was, but the message is marvelously well written. More. Please.

Good fic. More Ayn Rand than Eliezer, but lots of valid points and enjoyable world-juggling.

Arrrgh! That is NOT how Rationalist!Harry should react to something with the potential to ruin his social life. It sounds more like faux-reactions in commercials. Even so, liking the story so far.
