Stanislaus chapter 8 . 5/25
this was a VERY good story
gremlin914 chapter 1 . 5/10
So solid and doubly terrifying.
AerynS chapter 8 . 2/3
Kitrana chapter 8 . 1/8
and with one act poor dumb harry and his advisors collapses britains wizarding world. a few chapters ago harry was thinking about reforming the government of the wizarding world. and i thought oh good he on some level realizes that while power comes from the gun the job of good government is to make sure it doesn't stay there. all that other stuff democracies have the constitution, the courts, the vote, these things distribute power away from the gun. even though the root of it is still the gun.

and then now we see here harry just disregards that and rips the entire thing apart. in 10 years time i would expect there wouldn;t be a british wizarding democracy, just a bunch of family led fiefdoms.
lepetitereina chapter 8 . 1/7
Bravo! This was some next level world-building!
lepetitereina chapter 6 . 1/7
This is such an amazing story!
kitrana chapter 2 . 1/6
a very interesting story, the problem as i see it though is that if you want a democracy then the ministry is right, in principle anyway. for a democracy to work and be by the people for the people then the strong MUST be able to be brought to heel. the strong must be able to be held accountable by the weak. it's the only way democracies work and remain.
but in a world where a strong person can simply will it so no others can hold them accountable then binding of some sort becomes necessary. i really hope harry clues in on this, every tool he seeks and succeeds in dismantling is one less tool to bring the next Voldemort to heel after he dies.

A unique and well developed story. A refreshing allegory on power; its hazards and the corruptions that many fall prey to when wielding it. Very enlightening and highly enjoyable to read.
didyousaytim chapter 8 . 10/31/2023
Thank you for 2 more chapters and all sorts of loose ends being closed (at least for 10 years). While he completed Twiwizard (and 1/3) you didnt even pull the emancipated card. Liked available Sirius, bookish but considerate Hermione and Harry learning there is more to mafic than the welcoming light of a Lumos. Nox.

What a powerful view of magic and the strength of curiosity, intent and desparation needed to let it gracefully flow.
gabrieljuarezl chapter 8 . 10/26/2023
tks for sharing
Steve-Arkarian chapter 8 . 10/3/2023
This was a good story. Do you think you'll ever do a sequel?
Death Lantern chapter 4 . 9/2/2023
This reminds me of the movie sword in the stone and HP Lovecraft at the same time.

An interesting story that stopped being interesting in the last 2 chapters when Harry sealed the vain aspect of magic and became afraid of Hogwarts because there is another aspect of magic there.

I sincerely believe that the aspects of magic, despite how interesting they look, should have been otherwise, not being so powerful that they must be sealed for the good of all and without being able to do anything outside the limits of their prison, something more interesting perhaps, would be that the family that has awakened them could access some of the power of these aspects or be something like messengers of that aspect of magic...

unfortunately this story does not have an epilogue so that we know what has happened and even less does it have a sequel that does the same
HoneyBear84 chapter 8 . 6/19/2023
Love it and wish it was longer, had an epilogue or had a sequel
