|Reviews for Brutal Harry|
| peruser chapter 4 . 7/9/2011
McGonagal is giving Harry respect. I can tell that she will never speak dismissively, like an adult to achild that knows nothing or someone who thinks that they are superior, to him again. After all that Harry has been through, having an adult give him fair treatment would be a beneficial act.

What is it that the Marines say...HOOO-RAHH! ALRIGHT McGONAGAL! She was absolutely brilliant when she was laying down the law. She admitted and accepted her own wrong doing and she called Dumbledore and Snape on theirs! And she didn't let either one (I loved Snape's gag!) talk their way out of it! I bet she would get most of the teachers or students to walk out with her!

There are so few time when I have been so emotionally invested in a story from so short a start that I find myself unable to not review.
Absolutely great characterization of everyone involved, including the correct response to the child abuse, the confrontation between McGonagall and Snape. You have great grammar structure and diction, so well that I thought that I was reading a published novel.
I cannot wait for the next chapter.

I have read several stories that have this same idea, with Harry becoming cold and caculating due to abuse. This is by far the best one of them all. It is very well writen and the character interactions are believable. Plus someone finally told dumbles off. I do hope that you continue to include Hermione in the story in any way.

I'll be honest, i wasn't expecting to see the smart!harry angle make an appearance in a fic called Brutal Harry but your reasoning is sound and the characterizations solid. It's turning out to be even better than I had hoped.
Cant wait for the continuation...
thanks for writing.

Great story so far. I really enjoy the realism. It's great to see a harry who behaves like an abused child, and a McGonagall behaving as a professional educator.
I can't wait for the rest of the story to be posted!
By the way, "Innocent until proven guilty" is an American invention, specifically designed as the opposite of the British system wherein the accused must prove their innocence. The obvious logical error being that it is impossible to prove a negative.
For example; prove that you did NOT kill and eat an infant, then cleverly destroy and dispose of the bones.
You cannot. There is no evidence either way, but under the British system (especially a medieval one the wizarding world uses) the mere accusation from a "reliable" or "respectable" source (such as a member of the Aristocracy) was seen as sufficient to get you locked away, or even executed!

I quite like your representation of Harry. He reminds me alot of a Vulcan. I did always find it impossible that an abused child could and would change that fast (And I do believe canonHarry is abused is Vernon's "beat/stamp it out of him." is to be believed and Harry being a natural Magical Child there would be alot of "It")

I wonder if ron will be stupid enough to do something against harry?

when i read this chapter, and saw Mcgonagall act like the woman the books should have had her as instead of the yes woman that only showed her steel to dumbledore approved enemies i just basked in it for several minutes. That was probably the most satisfying conversation i have ever seen in harry potter fanfiction and i have read many. That was in every way a brilliant portrayal of the woman Mcgonagall should be and has to be to protect hogwarts. Brilliant i salute you!
