Reviews for Brutal Harry
Piletorn chapter 13 . 5/20
Great story!

Only one small note, which probably only have been established since you wrote this.

Technically speaking Dumbledore too is a half blood, being out of a muggleborn mother and a magic born father.

Woohoo it’s been years since I read this story. I still get a kick out of Harry acquiring a badass martial arts teacher with Mr Miyagi vibes
yochan123 chapter 13 . 4/13
beautiful ending, loved it so much
yochan123 chapter 10 . 4/13
i stan this hermione harry pairing. it's more realistic and they've really had a chance to grow and mature and care for each other

that confrontation with the goblet was FANTASTIC. seriously your story is SO SO SO GOOD
(least now NOBODY can claim that harry put his name in. he would probably suspect lucius of trying to kill him through this, and seriously what kind of a shit goblet can be confounded so easily?!)

at least it beats someone like BARTY CROUCH JR using such powerful magic against a goblet that harry couldn't overcome :(

"Pureblood supremacists are attempting to take over the nation again, and the Ministry is almost hopelessly corrupt." McGonagall said, "It is, quite frankly, a near-terminal situation. The only reason that I hold significant hope for the future of our nation, is because Hogwarts is still the premiere magical educational institution in Britain
ain't no hope when lucius even told harry how he controlled the ministry lolol

"Harry James Potter," She whispered fiercely into his ear as her head came to rest alongside his, "I will never, ever, let you be alone."
sniff T_T *tears*
yochan123 chapter 9 . 4/13
finally, one uneventful year for harry with no one or creature trying to kill him!

finally we can get some interhouse unity where the houses are not like warring nations!
YAY FOR REFORM

nice to be using the stone to make gold which is quite useful and long lasting hahaha...dobby having fun peddling gold i see :D

yes poor harry is not free until voldemotr and his DE dies...sigh

using a magically enhanced ballista would be fabbbbb

don't think most death eaters would hold up under a machine gun lol

that show with malfoy was verrrry interesting. i knew the dude was corrupt was heck but he will die

george granger is such a fun person :D
yochan123 chapter 8 . 4/13
ah shit i had a feeling bellatrix might escape. the damn bitch

hey were corrupt not just to the core, but almost completely comprehensively on ever level above entry-level positions. The clerks and Aurors he'd seen were straightforward enough, if not particularly driven in their work, and Tonks and her compatriots were blatantly honest, but he could tell by the way they moved around the other Aurors, that some were certainly more trustworthy than others.
yuuuup so corrupt it's a miracle they're still alive

voldemort would do the world a favor killing them

"You do realize, Albus," McGonagall said, "Just how much Harry's story has come to resemble Riddle's, and this time it was due to your action, rather than inaction?"

Dumbledore nodded sadly.
YES DO YOU REALIZE HOW EASILY YOU WOULD HAVE CREATED A SECOND VOLDEMORT, HUH DUMBLES?

lmao all wizard families buy food from muggles yet look down on them and want to eradicate them. wowoooo the hypocrisy

glad dumbles finally told the prophecy it is SO STUPID TO KEEP SOMETHING THIS MONUMENTAL FROM THE PERSON INVOLVED SO HE WILL BE IN MORE DANGER NOT KNOWING WHY PPL ARE COMING AFTER HIM

"The man was a death eater," McGonagall said, "I know the sorts of things men were required to do to prove themselves 'worthy' of the mark. His execrable behavior as an 'educator' shows that if he is 'reformed' at all, it is not by very much. Personally, I think Albus pushing him into a profession he detested in a location filled with ugly memories did nothing to help the situation.
see that's why i've always hated those fics with a nicer snape like IT DOES NOT MATTER BECAUSE TO BECOME AN INNER CIRCLE DEATH EATER YOU MUST KILL SO MANY MUGGLES AND COMMIT OTHER ATROCITIES AND HE IS WAY BEYOND REDEMPTION.

hhonestly the man HATES children, dumbles you are so senile and moronic.

dobby is so funny though he made this chapter better 3

harry should go build magical guns hshshs

and yay for sirius in magical america. screw wizarding britain!
yochan123 chapter 7 . 4/13
"Save your apologies," Harry bit out, anger coloring his words as he turned away from Dumbledore, "For when you've sacked Snape, expelled Draco Malfoy, Marcus Flint, and a half dozen other Slytherins I've heard first-hand accounts of attacking other students. Attacking, Headmaster," Harry spoke the title like it was a dirty word, "Not bullying. My aunt apologized to me, and she meant it, her entire life has changed. Yours hasn't."
that's right

ATTACKING and dumbles did nothing. you go harry!

let's just secretly arrange for lucius to DIE
ought to snap malfoy's wand honestly

nice that they're breaking sirius out hehe

i love that almost spy mission esque between hermione and harry haha technology rules
yochan123 chapter 6 . 4/13
YES YOU ARE HONESTLY TELLING ME THAT HOGWARTS AND ALBUS FFING HEAD OF THE WIZENGOMAT CANNOT ACQUIRE MANDRAKES FOR MONTHS?! NOT EVEN OWL ORDER SOME? wow what IS EVEN THE USE OF YOUR POSITIONS YOU STUPID OLD FART

YOU DISGUSTING SHIT

ALSO PRETTY SURE THAT SNAPE'S LIFE DEBT CARRIES TO HARRY AS WELL

START KILLING YOUR OWN HORCRUXES DUMBLESHIT

harry T_T T_T T_T you finally cracked. i'm both so happy and sad for you.
now one just needs to keep you sane by not letting the only two ppl to have shown you affection die...

see, hermione so easily bought mandrake even though she lives in a muggle area (and is becoming a fantastic researcher) meanwhile dumbles used the tuitition fees and his own money to do...ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

too bad we can't just have the basilisk cough up pettigrew

honestly with shits like fudge in charge we don't need voldemort lol voldemort can just sweep in and take over without going after harry at all
yochan123 chapter 5 . 4/13
dumbles better not have stolen money from harry's vaults!

also how could the potters from such a generational pureblood family not have had coffers

you go harry, great job there taking care of luna's bullies! NO BULLYING ALLOWED

lol anyone can use stupyfy - malfoy was throwing them out like candy before

patrolling with the mararuders map is very handy indeed :D too bad it doesn't show the basilisk's location haha

LMAOOOOO thank god mcg wears glasses else she would have been dead but welp, now pettigrew is gone but hey at least one less death eater hahaha
yochan123 chapter 4 . 4/13
i cried when harry went into shock. it is so sad. dumbles knew he was condemning harry to a horrible childhood, but did he have any idea how bad? the shit

NO REASON DUMBLES? I WOULD WANT TO MURDER YOU TOO AS A READER
get the f*** away from him!

justify harry's behavior? he was perfectly fine with the other students! you're the horrible perp who threw tom away and created voldemort

it was nice to see a petunia redemption

nice to see the gryffindors trying to break harry out too
yochan123 chapter 3 . 4/13
wow what a surprise that hermione wrote to McG! seriously it is amazing that harry didn't die from the abuse and indeed crimes of this serverity usually lands the perp in DECADES of jail,

rather glad that petunia had some conscience left towards harry
and yes dumbles should pay.

happy for hermione to be learning about wizarding culture as well that hogwarts would have NEVER taught her

hermione has the makings of a great investigator. lol mcg is gonna become an alcoholic at this point :D
hogwarts being a death trap and dumbles wanting harry to just up and frickin die without any training or assistance. THANK YOU MATE what if harry does die then will you finally get off your ass and fight voldy or just let the corrupt ministry remain ruling worse than voldy

snape i swear i will eviscerate you and throw you into azkaban you fucking owe a life debt to james and you are such a evil bastard to have killed so many people and hold grudges on harry
seriously dumbles and snape ust die

"I have told you for years that Severus has too much free reign," McGonagall said, her tone hard, but even, "I draw the line here. If you attempt to overrule me again, not only will I resign, but I will attempt to persuade every staff member I can to leave with me, and send a letter to the parents of every single student recommending they withdraw their children until such time as both Snape, and you, are removed from Hogwarts."
BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO THIS IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST MCGONAGALL I HAVE EVER READ IN ANY FANFIC

that's right, dumbles you allowed ppl like the marauders to get away with everything and bullies and tyrants to rule while punishing the victims! hogwarts is a complete farce!

honestly i have zero complaints about the lack of minor characters mentioned. it is NOT A GAME. HARRY KNOWS HE IS IN FFING DANGER AND HE IS TRYING TO SURVIVE. HE DOES NOT HAVE TIME TO PLAY SILLY LITTLE GAMES WITH BIGOTS LIKE RON WEASLEY. I THINK THIS IS A FABULOUS FIC AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING HERMIONE MORE HUMAN AND ALSO MCG and others to have a conscience!
yochan123 chapter 2 . 4/13
He despised bullies; some of the teachers in Surrey had been real hard cases, but none had been blatant bullies, they simply turned a blind eye to the predations of others. Severus Snape did both, and as Harry watched the man push around his 'students' Harry had already replaced the term with 'victims' in his mind.

indeed

and good misinformation cover. honestly if hermione wasn't so bossy and annoying to everyone she would have more respect and friends. there is NO need to rub everything into someone's face all the time

also theory is completely useless. this is MAGIC. you just need to understand it to perform it. stupid professors ffing up students' education

disdaining the over-reliance upon wands that had developed within the British culture, and advocating that education mandate each student master at least one of the core magical subjects wandlessly, and a focus on developing silent casting as a whole. The author also spent almost half of a chapter on arguing, in excruciating detail, why 'Finite Incantem,' should be taught wandlessly, silently, and motionlessly, to every Auror or Hit Wizard candidate, as it allowed escape from almost all common magical restraints.
that's right! it's so useful and same with protego. one should instinctively be able to summon up protective shields

honestly i keep wondering why they rely on wands so much like it's literally a small piece of wood that can SO easily be snapped and broken

Ultimately, though, it was the Wizard's magic, and the greater their personal control, the less dependent (or to Harry's thinking vulnerable) they were. It didn't even require a conscious decision on his part, to attempt to build fine enough control to no longer need a wand; someone else could take a wand from him, and thus, hold power over him, and that made wand-dependence unacceptable.
indeed it's always made me feel so irked why ppl make such a big deal about wands because if the wizard didn't have magic and it was all the wand's magic then obviously any muggle can just grab a wand and use magic!

seriously hermione run the fuck away omg

WHY ARE THE PROFESSORS SO USELESS AND SLOW. seriously sue hogwarts for all it's worth. they can't even hear the screams?

glad he isn't associating with this ron because ron is very OBVIOUSLY a bully and a bigot in the same veins as draco, just not as verbally puffed up as he was raised, but his inferiority and envy are clear to anyone and honestly not someone i see an abused harry would want to befriend
and he proved himself a traitor in 4th year and 7th year too

I'm really glad hermione left hogwarts - i think it was the right decision for her. she would never be appreciated since she is a muggleborn no matter how smart she is, and to be so confined by the theories and shit taught there and be jeopardized so is a waste of her time when she can pursue both magic and regular studies outside of the hogwarts death trap.

and i would be suspicious of the cloak too - like someone sending that kind of object without placing some kind of tracking charm or other stuff on it? PLEASEEE

yes why play a chess game when you can just fly over it lol
i like his research partnership with hermione. she would learn a lot more from independent study too that she would never get at hogwarts

it's nice that we didn't see much of quirrel. whatever he has plans, this harry won't care.
yochan123 chapter 1 . 4/13
honestly this is rather what i would expect from an abused orphan. protect his own stuff, get more knowledge to get stronger, etc. not be so trusting of others cuz honestly canon harry is a complete farce.

if jk wanted to write him with such terrible relatives then she should have shaped his psyche better
CM chapter 13 . 4/12
Really amazing feat of story telling. Thank you for sharing your imagination and craft with us readers.
Gazuzin chapter 13 . 3/31
Loved it, and agree on how Hermione carried the team and that the only realistic Harry in canon is the few capslock moments, the other times he just acts to please everybody. Anyways its cool how muggle firearms and explosivos can be useful even if shields can absorb most of the force
