Guest chapter 12 . 7/6/2019
Must say, I really like how this fic handles the faults of the people Harry canonically really likes. They're addressed and discussed through a jaded, mature outsider's viewpoint, but at the same time, the reason for those mistakes/weaknesses are explored.

It's rare to see a story portray Dumbledore's actions as problematic, but at the same time discuss how they are due to idealism and miscalculations (rather than make Dumbledore a completely amoral chessmaster). It's even rarer to see Hermione's faults actually discussed (since many writers choose to ignore her bad sides), and have Harry actually be irritated by it and gradually become friends with her. Ron isn't portrayed particularly nicely in this, but Harry had no reason to come to like the boy, so it's understandable that he only gets to see the most obvious qualities in him (sloppy, lazy, good at chess, etc).

Furthermore, it's great to see that an author doesn't feel that pointing out the flaws of Harry's acquaintances friends does not mean that they have to glorify his enemies. Malfoy in this is portrayed pretty similar to canon, as a rude, arrogant, bigoted, spoiled brat. And he is given a chance to change, but doesn't immediately turn over a new leaf at the slightest pressure to become Harry's BFF. I to this day have no clue why in the world people want to make this character likable or a hero, since literally nothing that he does in the books supports it (and don't get me started on stories where Malfoy gets into relationships with Harry or Hermione. Did these people even read the books?) (actually, Malfoy glorification reminds me of people who try to make gilgamesh likable in FSN fanfictions. At least Malfoy isn't overtly as rapey as that guy)

All in all, one of the things I love about this story is that it points out both the strengths and weaknesses of Harry Potter characters in a realistic way that someone like EMIYA would. This fic may criticize, but it does not 'bash' the characters, and does so in an even-handed fashion, which is something so rarely seen in fanfiction (by its nature people tend to have ulterior motives such as bashing their disliked character or promoting their favorite).
