Funny, I find the idea that killing the defenseless and writing it off as a choice is kind of offensive. The idea that an abortion is simply a woman's right completely dismisses the father's role in creating life. It's really very sexist when you think about it. It takes two people to create a child. It's not something that spawns unassisted in a woman's body.
For the record, Imbeni doesn't share my legal perspective on this issue. However, he agreed that for someone of Tom Riddle's age, who would have been young when abortion was illegal and something done in back alleys, and history, idealizing his mother and hating the father who abandoned him, it would be a natural perspective. We agreed to leave it in because it was a psychologically consistent perspective for that character, and Harry has similar abandonment issues...Voldemort being a manipulator knew that would strike a chord. So to degree, yes, it is propaganda... Voldemort is simplifying the situation and presenting it in the most negative light possible to convince Harry of something. However it's in-story propaganda.
You are free to disagree with it of course. Voldemort says a lot of things that I hope people don't agree with.
Even though I would agree that abortion is wrong, I'm far more sympathetic to the women involved, who are often in difficult situations. However one of those women involved is an abortion survivor permanently bound to a wheel chair. Meeting her makes it hard to write it off as a simple choice issue.

Very clever, very amusing, well plotted.
One thing-leave abortion out of it. Comparing abortion to the Holcaust, *even* if it's the villain who introduces this idea, is offensive. A woman's right to choose is way too complicated an issue to set up alongside such issues as murder and genocide. I almost stopped reading there. Just leave it out. As it stands now, it reads as a stealth anti-choice propaganda message.

Damn... Draco and Hermione :(
oh well.. whatever floats your boat.. its your story :D
One thing that i noticed.. the chapters seem too much like rushed summaries sometimes.. as if you are making a gist of the book events...

Draco seems too OC...
I would have preferred an insult or two shooing Hermione away so that she doesn't taint Draco...
Draco is like... the quintessential villain.. he exudes bad-ness :D
To make him good.. to make him like a Mud-blood is sacrilegious :'(

I like this style that you have used.. its different :)

GGrrrr! Its awesome, but why'd you have to make harry a wimp! He should be the Slytherin Sex God since Draco isn't up to it (with every girl but Pansy).

it was intresting
| LaurelGrace chapter 1 . 8/25/2013
I am in awe of this. I found this thinking it would be a cracky parody about the day in the life. It isn't. It's so much better. It seems like this is what I've been looking for for so long, and it's glorious.

Well- that's sorted.
"Snape sighs. A nicer, friendlier Voldemort had been too good to be true." And- I can very much see Snape doing this. I laughed.

Well, i'll admit, it was the title and the short description that made me start reading. And though the writing is different then I'm used to, but your warning told me of that, I got used to it after a couple of chapters. Now the title and the description are what got me interested it was the story that made me stay. I was compelled to continue reading and I must say, I don't regret it. Great job.

not hermonie's cloak it is harry's and she sould give it to him
| lilyflower50 chapter 8 . 5/13/2013
I think Dumbledore had no right to give Harry's father's cloak to anyone else except Harry no matter the reason behind what he thought it is like he has stolen it from who rightfully owns it

Didn't quite like how rushed it was and how Harry's relationships were so irrational. It seems lacking of emotions. Luna's character was changed so drastically that you might as well have used another character. The only thing I actually enjoyed was that the plan of the story would be pretty nice if not for how it is written.

There were parts that I didn't like about the story but there were parts I liked too.
Overall, great job! Thanks for sharing this!
