Reviews for The Wizard of the Kaleidoscope
kalloni chapter 51 . 8/3
Honestly Daphne had no right to make him promise that. Even if it's true that she or Hermione would leave each other for him, that just makes their relationship even more toxic imo. He should have refused to promise.

Don't get me wrong, I like the story though bits are confusing, but yeah the relationship part is frustrating.

Yeah Daphne is being pretty presumptuous here ngl
kalloni chapter 43 . 8/2
One aspect that tired me about poly stories is I feel it dilutes the intimacy and gets distracting. In this story both Daphne and Hermione had feelings for Harry. He had feelings for them too but was too anxious to act on them. Normal enough so far for people their age. Suddenly Hermione reveals attraction to Daphne. She molests her in her sleep. Apparently the story was edited to make it "consensual". I don't know how it was before, but Hermione literally believed her to be unconscious, knew it would be seen as a violation and kept going. It's already awful, but with Daphne's background it adds a new layer of icky. Daphne woke up, said "how dare you" which is 100 percent valid, seemed angry and wanted revenge (also valid) but then it turns into a sexual game which apparently, after the divide with Harry, they continued exploring. So Hermione basically gets rewarded for disgusting behavior.

Meanwhile Harry, who was understandably extremely angry and hurt, gets left out to dry. Apparently the story was edited to make him jealous instead of just angry but I think the anger is valid, though a bit of jealousy and hurt is also understandable.

If I'd been around during voting, I'd have voted Daphne. She actually played off him really well at the start. Hermione was an entitled fangirl and now she's even worse. With their messy relationship I'd think Harry should just move on to like Fleur or Aoko. It's hard watching him be nice to Hermione like nothing happened.

Yeah the lack of consent here is uncomfortable especially since Hermione knew what she was doing was a violation but kept going anyway.
kalloni chapter 30 . 8/1
It is kind of crazy that a dueling tournament is practically encouraging the deaths of people. It's also crazy that Dumbledore would take part even if he probably wouldn't kill anyone himself. Just seems like a massive waste of talent and life.
kalloni chapter 27 . 7/31
The more I hear about Lily the less I seem to like her. I'm just kind of confused about her character. Apparently she strung Snape along since they were kids and was possessive of him and just kind of modified people's memories on a whim. Then when she was 13, presumably before they fought and split, she was having an affair with Narcissa for a year or two (which is kinda weird with their respective ages, but regardless). So it feels like she was leading Snape on the whole time. Then he and she fight and out of spite she uses compulsion on herself to forget she hates James and ends up with him, having a kid and everything. It just feels like she used people for her own gratification.

yrlastin chapter 4 . 5/3
If he must kill every time he draws the sword, how is he supposed to practice with the sword or its abilities?

Train, kill!
Train, kill!
Train, kill!

yrlastin chapter 3 . 5/3
Is this a dark/evil Harry?

If so, could you put a warning in the description, please.
yrlastin chapter 1 . 5/3
Killing the was arbitrary and completely unneeded, unless he is dark!

Owls hunting snakes is their nature!

Killing it when it oviously just delivered his letter means it belongs to someone else and that means he did the same thing Petunia did to his pet snake!

Hermione just pisses me off. More so than everything in this story has shown.
corjca1 chapter 2 . 7/26/2022

edoabb chapter 1 . 6/21/2022
Well I like the premise and the execution, but I kinds feel cheated on how he got his powers. I mean Sharingan for being slapped, when the Uchiha used to spar until passed out and usually had to wait until a life or death moment. The snake bit was original and could be considered enough, especially considering the lack of friends in Harry life.

Yet how his childhood has been changed from having super powers, and how his interactions with his family changed has also been glossed over.
edmoundking chapter 52 . 4/25/2022
this is Confusing and meaningless magic system descriptions
example: rune fate/trust and fate/kalidoscope is meanless
mtkicks chapter 65 . 1/23/2022
great fic
it seems like bashing in the beginning but it's not. it gets better. though it got progressively worse from the dueling tournament. It's still very good though.
