A little part of me dies when an exceptionally well-written, thought-provoking, political fic has not been updated in a while. This fic is the epitome of AU. Even with just three-chapters I constantly recommend authors this fic when they're writing political material.
Third time rereading this, this time I'll favorite you and your fic with hope that one day I'll get an alert saying you've updated.

The story is a little jumpy. The plot jumps forward and leaves you sort of confused about what happened in some places, but the writing itself is very good.

Loving your work. I can't wait for more chapter's. I just hope you update soon.

Om..ggg I talk like a Potter maniac LOLs

I'd not expect such hatred from Harry. He comes from a loving family and his mother was muggleborn.

Really good! Hmm if Voldemort still is Tom then I'm guessing through the use of Horocrux that he's playing all sides. That he's the one with a full deck so to speak. I'll hold off on my opinion till the story proper.

Excellent. Really, really, brilliant.
Properly done twins, properly done Slytherin sorting, and most important, the Darth Sidious and Chancellor Palpatine equivalence with Voldemort and Riddle.
I salute you, sir and humbly beg for more updates.
By the way, I'm gonna be shamelessly stealing ideas from you.
And while we're at it, I must point out a few things.
The news article at the beginning makes it a forgone conclusion that Harry'll fail at whatever he does.
His experience with the muggles kinda reminds me of a story where he was reincarnated as Salazar Black. (I think that's the name of the story too, but can't be sure)
Anyway, keep up the good work

Really great story! I hope you're continuing it. You've captured the essence of preteen gossip, history being written by the winners, and various nuances of bigotry. It will be interesting to see where you're going with this.

This is like a train wreak you cant help but watch, we all know eventually whats going to happen to poor Harry its just the length of the road he has to walk thats the issue
| lazyguy90 chapter 3 . 12/1/2012
Brilliant work on this.
Some truly fascinating stuff.
I look forward to the next chapter.
Keep at it.

A very good story. It is rare to read a story on this page where you get the feeling that the Author is older than let us say 15, has read a few non-fiction books himself and is reasonably smart.
I am glad I found your story. I like the idea of a political Dark Lord. As you said, the lack of ideological explanation in the Original Books is very much annoying. Sadly, fanfiction usually has the same weakness and just turns the conflict into a confrontation between "good" and "evil".
I would like to encourage you to continue to explore Harry's moral developement. This way, you add a little more depth into Harry's character. See for example this sentence:
"Harry supported the idea with his whole heart but a small part of him remembered Colin Creevey, doubled up in pain on the ground, and felt a slight sense of unease."
If you have the motivation to continue, I think this could be one of the few stories that could rival "On the way to Greatness", one of the best stories this side has to offer.

wait but in one of the earlier books it described merlin being...but... maybe it used to be like college level at that point or something... hmm I don't know
and this is a very interesting story, a new twist to the harry in slytherin, a harry who actually belongs in slytherin (jokeing aside you made this very well, despite the rushed timeline, I feel we really inside this Harry's head)
also this is listed as Harry/Gabi that's how I found it as that is one of my prefered pairings, about when will she enter play and in what fashion?
