There is no Harmony when it is a second hand relation. The part of the story keep digging down teh sewer, only you can think that a second hand relation is good.

Your Dumb as a dore is not the main problem, he never count on canon so if he do not count on your story will not make any difference. The main problem we still has to read about the prat trying to be something he do not has enough brain to be
jchangpa chapter 1 . 6/23
if you revised it, how come you still has the prat near hermione. A partial good start, not so bright future of the story.

You mention in your second AN that your stance on Dumbledore has "taken a 360"...You realize that means "no change", right? The opposite viewpoint would be a 180.

Bigotry and discrimination run "rampant", not "rampart".
thonez chapter 10 . 5/9
Relatively good story. Great until end, trilling combat scenes, epilogue sucks. Show, don't tell, much better would be scene with happily married NL, at end Harry should show HMS arrest warrant for Dumbledore and Schrimgeour for treason(he freed Malfoy so he helps DE). Also develop romance and Harry should ask instead of marrying them off-stage.

As Dumbledore you tell that he thinks for bigger picture, ends justify the means, for greater good. Nothing could be farer from truth. He is just a shortsighted religious nutcase.
If he wanted to kill Voldie with smallest loss he would kill every DE as each DE will likely kill at least two persons.
As ends justify the means he had ten years to for example abduct every DE and make them swear unbreakable vow of loyalty to him or got killed. Then instruct them to dose Tom with DOLD.
A greater good means that when considering alternatives he should sum profit and loss of each interested party and select best alternative. He almost never does that, state of Hogwarts education and economical impact is the proof. Only thing he does to address DEjungen problem is sending slytherins to dorms while troll is in castle.
In short if I needed to describe his motivation its religious belief to save most sinners, death is just next great adventure. So he keeps slytherin to generate as much sinners to save more sinners.

As realism you have problem with this setting. Here wand is about as good versus a gun as a javelin. In any DE encounter Harry/DA members would just do ta-ta-ta-ta-ta from their miniguns and five seconds later DE would be dead. Also at christmass with Grangers Harry would just get call that guard commando eliminated ten intruders. That doesn't leave much room to combat-dialogue so its better to give each DE bulletproof-charmed robes to make spells relevant.

Then you have main problem of Super!Harry fics, why wait? As you added british army instead of going Hogwarts Harry would recruit muggleborns/squibs, test them with veritaserum and create armor-wizard division. Each DE in Diagon/Knockturn alley would be instantly shoot by disillusioned sniper. Loyal muggleborns would wear 40mm thick featherlight panzer, minigun and grenade launcher. With that advantage your setting gives DE don't stand a chance.

mobulis chapter 3 . 4/15
Harry cheated with that book since he didn't let other people use it.
JaeJan chapter 10 . 4/1
Wonderful story! There was a surprise around every single corner, none of which I'd seen coming. What a refreshing imagination you have. Thanks for the great read!
Elena Shadow Wolf chapter 2 . 3/26
The fact you have turned one of the most courageous men in the books into something evil has stopped me from wanting to continue reading this. Good story until that.
aa chapter 10 . 3/10
que fic de mierda
Brian1972 chapter 4 . 3/3
Now it gets ridiculus. Wasn't it established at the begining of the story that Hermione and Ron tried to contact Harry but where hindered by Dubmledore? So in what way did they betray Harry during that summer?

Typical Harry can do no wrong story where he demands absolute loyality but gives very little in return. Where are Harry's letters? Esspecially to Hermione who was at the bring of death after the MoM battle and still recovering at the begining of the summer? If the logic was at least consistent ...

People who point to the flaws of Harry's friends regulary forget Harry's many flaws. And often they go over the top like Ron becoming a pureblood bigot or Hermione being not ok with Harry doing well in school. Her worry about the book is legimete:

1. Since Harry does not understand the changes he can't know if they are all safe. His argument that they must be since the person would not have written them down is rubbish. It could very well be research in progress for some potions and then highly dangerous. Same for the spells where no explicit effects are writen down (see Harry's fight with Draco).
2. Even if the majority of the fans don't like it Hermione is perfectly right that using it equals cheating. This HArry should even know that more than the canon one since you made him more studious and he got into the military and those have a very strict code of conduct (hopefully he never tries to become an officer with that attitude he would be court martialed after his first major assigment where he forgets to mark all ideas he took from other sources).
