Reviews for Inquisitor Carrow and the Bureaucracy of Failure
averageschmoe chapter 4 . 10/3/2023
Well written. I see and hear Miranda Richardson again, like once in my youth, when she owned the theatre stage.

Im loving the cutaways to the God-Emperor just being a long lived and smart, but hilariously normal dude. I mean, c’mon, who wouldn’t want a hoverboard?

Ironically, if he just shared with Dumbledore what governments the Imperium builds are like and organized, Dumbledore would probably be on his side. Contrary to popular belief in the fandom, the Imperium actually does an extremely good job at that. It's ironically the local governments that are a corrupt mess and a major problem. The Imperial government has some of that, but rather little in a nice little inversion of real life. The issue gets worse in that the Imperium doesn't have the authority to interfere with member governments thanks to the Emperor's orders and laws needed to build the Imperium. To the point that even Inquisitors are depicted having to sneak around them and being afraid of getting caught, highlighting just how serious that limitation on their power is. We even seen examples of Planetary Governors commanding the Imperial forces that show up to help them in famous campaigns.

The Imperium is basically a hybrid of NATO and the United Nations, rather than what can really be called a nation. In this analogy, Holy Terra is the United States of America as hegemon and primary power in the web of agreements and alliances. Mostly held together by personal loyalty to the Emperor by each and every citizen even before his long potty break.

Doctors, accountants, and solicitors are among the top of society, every society, in both pay and respect. There is nothing "middle class" about them.

Eh, torture is fine if you are certain your victim has the information you need, the information is important, and the victim is not cooperating. Or, of course, if you're in the field and need information to proceed or survive and don't have it. At that point it's them or you.

And not just medical possibilities with potions. Even just a highly efficient, heat-resistant lubricant would be extremely useful.

Speaking of abnormally small people, keep in mind that the lore of 40K indicates that humans in the 41st millennium average around the height of a Spartan III from Halo, though on the small side. So, even though you meant it as a joke, it actually would be true even for the normal Imperial humans.

I love how they go from being worried Harry might kill them for their abuse to worried he might kill them for not drowning him, a psyker, as a baby. Although, I want to point out that he was not a rogue or otherwise unsanctioned psyker. Though, it could be that he is thinking in terms of "kill all psykers until the Emperor says otherwise".

This chapter is surprisingly wholesome for Harry/ Inquisitor Carrow.

I liked the door prank god emperor arc

Reading
Erizar chapter 6 . 12/20/2022
The prank war between Hermoine & Ron and Fred & George is not interesting. The small interaction between Ginny and Snape at Christmas provided more character developmnent than ALL the pranks in the war so far, except for Fred and George being unable to see each other. Which after a while became cruel seeing as everyone saw their emotional distress. But even then, nobody learned anything or grew from it. The perpetrators didn't learn restraint, and the victims escalated with a "prank" that at best incovenienced EVERYONE, or at worst endagered people while reducing the staffs ability to respond.

A great follow up on the first story, kudos!
Angery Katte chapter 3 . 11/13/2022
Ah, it should be spelled “definitely” rather than “defiantly.”
Dalriaden chapter 2 . 9/17/2022
Pretty weird he doesn't view vampires as heretical abhumans as amusing as it is.

ppft, a ceremonial cavalry sabre? Timothy wants a Polish husaria sabre. THAT's a weapon, especially if he can learn to wield it with the finesse it deserves using the thumb ring to perform the moulinet moves, like Hellish Polish Quarte, which was not named for fun [and which the Poles call, in their own language, the 'Eunuch cut' as it cuts a man in half... well, in an appropriate place. Seriously, get that boy a man's weapon.
