Reviews for Harry's Game
Lydia M Argent chapter 2 . 8/24/2011
Oh my god, they already have super awesome sticks that they can use to do what ever they want, and now you give then face book? How is that fair?
Guest chapter 1 . 8/22/2011
Great take on the Snitch and Quidditch. Prose could use some work (especially some of the stilted uses when a contraction would be preferable - you are to you're).

I've been waiting for Less Wrong to finish HP and the Methods of Rationality and this was a nice read while we wait.
Kalimada chapter 7 . 8/15/2011
Slight nitpick. Aragog is the name of the leader of the group of Acromantula in the Forest. Not the species name.

I loved the part at the end when Hermione said 'less wrong'.
David DeLaney chapter 23 . 6/24/2011
High marks overall. First, the bad: as others have noted, the author could really use a closer relationship with English spelling, grammar, and phrasing. (...However - on looking closely, I'm _fairly_ sure that English is not the author's first language, in which case at least some of this gets a pass from me, cuz it's difficult enough to flow and shine in this language as a -native- speaker.)

Why I'm jumping feet-first on that part? Because it's obscuring, by repeated invocation of "oh no, I didn't just read something wrote like that", the IDEAS behind the terrible prose... which are purest gold. BL has savagely deconstructed Quidditch here, and as a side note the house elves, neither of which Eliezer has gotten to do yet, and done both quite quite logically; he's also caught the spirit of Eliezer's characters as well, I think, though the flesh of the words was weak, stopping some of it from shining through.

I am glad to have read this fanfic, and hope the author is motivated to write more.

Great! As good as Methods of Rationality. Nice to see Quidditch given its just desserts.

You should mark this story as complete.
Jillian chapter 23 . 6/13/2011
I really liked this story on two levels. First, the Quidditch game itself, and the various strategy games Harry, Quirrel, and everyone else is playing. Second, the philophy and lessons behind it: economics, "wisdom," etc.

I don't know if you have more to say on the second level, but I would love to see Harry playing the inter-year war games. And find out what he wants with Olliver Wood.

P.S. I don't know if ff net messed things up, but the formatting could use some clean up.

We play games to have fun. Is that the right answer?
OwlofNight chapter 23 . 6/8/2011
Sweet ending :)
OwlofNight chapter 22 . 6/8/2011

OwlofNight chapter 21 . 6/8/2011
At first i was like .

eel chapter 23 . 6/6/2011
There are a lot of compliments I could give this fic, about how well it captures the spirit of MoR despite some formatting and phrasing issues, about how entertaining it was or how it will stay with me for a long while, but I think I will simply say this:

I clicked on the link to this story from LessWrong's profile merely out of curiosity, fully expecting to read the first chapter just to satisfy said curiosity and then go watch Doctor Who. Instead I found myself compelled to finish the whole thing in one sitting, postponing Doctor Who for at least an hour.

Trust me, that is a very sincere compliment.
Lokistrong chapter 23 . 5/30/2011
Ok, this was good, damn good, Methods good in fact. Thanks for your addition to that world.
Minerva McGonagall Rox chapter 23 . 5/29/2011
This was an awesome story, if a bit ridden with grammar errors. You did a great job staying true to the ideas and cleverness of "Canon".
