I actually agree with you. There are plenty of examples of Harry being brilliant in his own right through out all of the books. Some examples of reading body language, bluffing and piecing together a full story are:
The descriptions: Consider that everything described in the books is a third person view of Harry's own mind, (except for the few chapters he's not in) which would explain why the narration knew what a playstation was but each magical incident has to be described because Harry didn't know. If you accept that then every description of the characters is what Harry notices about them and usually the descriptions are well thought out and include quality of clothing, general activities, basic personality and behavior as well.
Bluffing: my favorite example of this comes from the first book. While they are sneeking off to save the stone they run into Peeves before they even reach Fluffy and Harry pulls a fast one, pretending he's the Bloody Baron, and PEEVES believes it.
Peicing things together, well most of the books have some sort of mystery involved. But my favorite, most Holmes like examle is also from book one where he puts together the dragon egg, hagrid, music and whatnot to realize that someone is going to steal the philosophers stone. If you read that section it's a jump of logic that screams detective potential.
So while I do, like you, believe Sherlock would be a lot smarter, Harry would be far from a goldfish.

"Are you kidding me?" John yelped. "That was nonsensical"
My thoughts after this chapter ALSO ummm what the fuck is THIS line?
Mary wolf-whistled. "Who doesn't love a bit of yaoi"
that's the grossest and my fetishizing thing I've read together i feel ill and vaguely nauseous and really angry
if i were Sherlock i would punch Mary holyyyyy sshhhiiiittt that's so bad. omg. you, the writer,. Need To Understand her saying that Is Homophobic.
It's so bad! what the fuck! fuck! im dying!
i dont think i can continue this story which is a shame since i was originally inspired by it and impressed and awed but now... reading that felt like a hurtful slap. im gay and if some bitch told me "haha who doesn't love some yaoi" when i kissed someone i would die of embarrassment. it's terrible. It's mean. It's fetishing and homophobic and im not even going to waste my breath explaining how bad it is u can do your own research
(Im still screaming. I can't believe my eyes that i just read that in the year of 20gayteen what the fuck. please. dont do that. hhhnnnnnggggggg)

gotta admit, im lost. rory and anne or whatever her name is? they dont follow the rules of the hp universe and dont click with the story. idk how they exist, how they know who rowling is, and im honestly expecting alternate universes with jk rowling and stuff appearing. it's all very confusing!
I love everything else though - Harry and Sherlock and their crew works very wel! I believe this was written before season 3 which explains why mary is a giggly, exciteable girl instead of a formidable assassin
| Roserayrose chapter 16 . 4/4
There's something deeply amusing and fascinating abt you talking abt peter capaldi (i think that's his name) being chosen as the doctor instead of a woman or someone else like ! i come from the future with good news for u bud

Interesting plot, until it got too big and complicated.

this story just updated and I have no idea what this is... I'm not sure if I have even read it or not, but I love the sickening lament! I'll have to come back to this one later... I'll have to figure out where I left off... best of luck! I love your writing style and your Ron!

Err actually magical glamour is exist. In deathly hallows, after hermione changed to lestrange, she charmed ron to have beard and long hair. Just saying

I was surprised with Amy and Rory. I missed them. A cameo on a potter-Sherlock crossover was a blast!

I love your writing so much, the sheer joy and accuracy you put into your work really shows.

Loving the Princess Bride reference. In fact, loving all of the little hidden refrences

Okay. Evanna Lynch is officially my absolute favorite pick for a female doctor. It would be absolutely brilliant

Wow, I got so much from the second and third lines of this chapter. Apparently Jamie is the reason Rolf went to Ithaca to look for dragons! Cool! I'm also glad the Potter kids are together.
Newt was great.
I guess I came up with the wrong crackpot theory about Sally-Anne Perks. But Hermione doing a Stupefy on the Hogwarts Express in First Year? I know it's Hermione, but that's ridiculous!
Is Steve Rogers a wizard? What? Or maybe he's a Squib or a Muggle child of someone invited to Dumledore's funeral.
Soo...the only way for meeting Harry and Hermione not to break canon is Memory Charms. Or I guess technically it could be in one of the many timeskips when the book didn't tell us everything that happened every day.
What? How does Jessica have no parents?
(As a side note, I think your stories have me writing the longest comments for them.)
