Reviews for The Well Groomed Mind
Cyclical Beats84 chapter 10 . 8/29
There's good and bad here. The characters themselves are likeable and Harry's arc of gaining a mentor and improving himself feels very satisfying.

But it's definitely a power wank, with Harry being the one small spot of sanity apparently capable of cowing both Dumbledore and Snape with his amazing muggle powers of deduction and logic, something that wizards obviously have no concept of. *yawn* The antagonists being this dumb certainly cheapens many of Harry's victories and makes it hard to buy into the rest of the world.

That said, those moments can still be satisfying and I'm still reading and enjoying it, avidly even. And that's really all we want from fanfic.

"I want to sue The Daily Prophet, Rita Skeeter, and her editor for libel. Although I was interviewed for the tournament, the interview was interrupted by Professor Dumbledore immediately after she asked how my parents would feel about me being in the tournament. I never answered. Yet, her article claimed I said my parents would be proud of me. She also claimed I'm dating my best friend Hermione Granger."

Uhhh isn’t the problem he describing more like Publication of knowingly false information? Dating his friend nor his parents being proud of him sounds like libel. I don’t see how does this can harm his reputation except the case Harry is willing to be racist or something and claim that he wouldn’t like his parents to be proud of him and the possibility of being involved in romantic realationship with Hermione will harm his pure blood image

I have also seen wills which set up the scenario: if the husband or wife die from the same incident or within x hours or days of each other they are deemed to have died simultaneously.

Enjoyed the story.

I've read this story a few times now. It is wonderfully written, and keeps you waiting to read more. I hope you return to FF and update one day soon.

Great opening
Guest chapter 30 . 5/25
Absolutely love what you’ve done here. Very intriguing story. Wish it hadn’t been abandoned. Hoping your chronic illness has gotten better and Covid didn’t take you from us.
perlcat45 chapter 30 . 5/12
It's an amazing story.
take chapter 11 . 4/26
...the kids and run and hide
lukejmontier1 chapter 4 . 4/1
Im gonna be honest. The letter explaining the genes of wizard is far too long. You could’ve fit this I. One or two paragraphs in a scientific but shorter version
Guest chapter 6 . 3/13
I don't find the ghost thing controversial. Even assuming souls do exist, that doesn't mean that ghosts are souls.

If I remember right, even Nick was unsure.

The order of the Phoenix wasn’t public knowledge
Ltbutterfly287 chapter 1 . 3/4
Really had to force myself to read this, at no point did it become interesting cause from top to bottom it was just fandom obsessions with evil dembledore.
Jemma Blackwell chapter 30 . 2/25
I sure hope you finish this one. It is an amazing story.
Jemma Blackwell chapter 18 . 2/24
I thought the dementors that are not really under anyone's control all that well, just got greedy and went for Barty, maybe because Fudge told them too because he is so damn scared of Voldemort? Seemed like a fear based thing to me, not a political one. Or said another way, a Fudge mistake not a government mistake.
