Reviews for Hermione Granger and the Burden of Responsibility
Jillian A.K chapter 5 . 2/5/2018
Not saying what Harry did was right or wrong. But did it occur to him that he could have destroyed all the Dementors without killing anyone, and thereby spared Hermione torture at the hands of the Dementors... without killing anyone? Wonder what he'd say if someone pointed that out.

Please, I was disappointed when HJPEV chose an option other than 'kill them all'. I preferred that to what he did in canon.

Elucidating an objective system of morality wouldn't be enough to get you a PhD in philosophy :

Very enjoyable story. Sad to see it has been put on hold.

I wish it were finished, it was a good read so far, left me hanging though.
Mr.Charles chapter 1 . 7/22/2015
I have to admit, the chances of that marriage loophole coming up are actually absurdly high; in fact, one can almost draw relationships to real life law, with the statutory rape clauses containing marriage exceptions, but those exceptions requiring marriage *before* the act rather than after, typically. Just a random connection I thought of.

Excellent fanfic, though you have a few glaring logical loopholes. For one, these *are* wizards panicking here; they need not be rational and run for the door, they might attempt to kill the boy who caused the Dementor to attack in futile spite or terror. Most likely, the Wizengamot would dissolve into absolute chaos and death, Dumbledore and his faction protecting Harry while the others fought them, with Harry realizing, to his utter horror, what Dumbledore would later tell him-violence spirals out of control. Even assuming the Dementor acts *that* quickly, there is no reason for Amelia to spare Harry after he destroys the Dementor prior to heading off with Hermione. The second is actually a huge one.

I would also consider if Harry's Pheonix would come to him suddenly, instead of Fawkes, or not.

This is beautiful. Tracey is a perfect representation of every obsessive fangirl ever. For what it's worth, I hope you update this someday even if it seems you haven't for a few years. I also really want Hermione to have a frank conversation with Lucius Malfoy. This is something I always wished for in HPMOR as well (though it was not meant to be) because I just think it would be incredibly interesting. So if you had any thoughts of going in that direction . . . please do. This was very enjoyable though and I look forward to seeing the continuation (if there is one)

I don't understand how Harry can cast the true Patronus and reject death so soon after murdering people (and not in self defence like he does in canon).

there go the plans ... :)

Why is there no more of this? Curse you, hiatus!

Also, reading this makes me appreciate just how slowly EY has been progressing over the last year or so.

I have this fear that hermione's life will be less interesting than harry's.

Anyway, you probably aren't reading this, but kudos.

This is one HPMR fanfic that actually seems to be written with EY's voice, and with a very similar understated brand of humor. It has been a real pleasure to be able to reenter the HPMR universe. You've shown that it is actually a Multiverse, with different story arcs possible. EY changed a single key feature of the original HP series, then allowed the new version of the wizarding world to unfold based on that change (although with much better writing and character development that the original HP stories). You've done it, too. Congratulations, and thank you.

"Remember, the patronus charm works by thinking about happy thoughts *instead of* death."

I don't know if this is corrected later in the fic, but I see that none of the reviewers so far commented on this. This is not how the patronus 2.0 works. The standard patronus works by thinking of happy thoughts. Patronus 2.0 works by acknowledging that demontors are manifestations of death and thinking of happy thoughts that *are* about death.

Specifically, the rejection of death and the intention to defeat death.
qbsmd chapter 2 . 6/28/2014
I'm really glad someone wrote up this HPMoR alternate universe.

That said, I didn't like "have we not moved past that yet" as a response. It doesn't fit HJPEV's character; he's probably still feeling guilty about the woman in Azkaban who forgot her children's names.

"You just killed 50 people, not one hour ago!"
"Not with a Patronus!"
"The day is young!"

"You just killed 50 people, not one hour ago!"
"No part of what I do is the 'Natural Order'. I am become Chaos, disorderer of Worlds!"
"Then what does 'rejection of death as part of the natural order' even mean?!"

"You just killed 50 people, not one hour ago!"
"Since when was it wrong to kill Nazis? Do they even count as people?"
"Yes. Barely, but yes."

"You just killed 50 people, not one hour ago!"
"But you have to admire the poetry of the justice involved."
"Do I? Yeah, you killed people who wanted to kill me with the same method they wanted to use, but admire it? Really?"
rilianus chapter 7 . 5/17/2014
I'm kind of conflicted about your fic. I found chapters with Harry's perspective to be really good, you managed to capture a writing style of the author. What I really missed was more political game, which has really drawn me to the original as well to the first chapters of this one. It feels like the last two chapters were really sub-pair with all things 'girly', meanwhile, for example, leaving the case of professor Quirrell unattented - it would be really, really interesting to watch his reaction.
Since it's been over a year since the last update I have to conclude this work is abandoned and I have to rate it based on what we have right here.
Overall it was a great idea, very good execution and misplaced focus in the last chapters - 3.8/5.
