Reviews for The Accidental Animagus
20000 WPM chapter 21 . 9/22
A story where Draco actually seems like a Slytherin, how rare. Most of the stories I have read do not show much cunning in Draco at all. I don't particularly like the character of Draco but your version seems a better fit, more believable.

Hermione on the Quidditch team? That would be something different and interesting. Would give her one more thing in common with Victor.

If a long sort is a sign of a powerful wizard what does that mean for
Draco, who was sorted so fast the hat barely touched his head.

It always makes me sad when they talk about Sirius and you know he is innocent, in a horrible place and being thought badly about at the same time.

Pew wanted to read a story by you again and since I never truly got into the accidential animagus series I started it. But I think Harry being super Harry and Snape has to be good no matter what overshadow several good plots/ideas.

1. Harry has to be always be better than others in particular Hermione. Yes you write she has the edge in wandless magic, but it never translates to her getting anything done. Same is true for all the other kids and often even the adults. All exsist to be plot devices to fail where Harry doesn't or to set up the stage so Harry can shine.

2. Harry has inexplicible knowledge/instincts. Notice how in canon Harry tends to be wrong all the time. Which makes it so funny when fans complain Hermione should have trusted HArry's superior instincts in book 6 about Malfoy. Based on historic precedence Hermione should have concluded, if Malfoy is Harry's first suspect then Malfoy has to be innocent.

3. Snape bing secretly good. The major problem with this is that unless you go for a major rewrite of his character (which the story didn't) he is not. A good person does not bully children and show such massive favourtism as a teacher. And no he is not forced to do so due to his position as a double agent (that position would actually logically allow him to be a model of impartiality), so it must be what he wants to do.
But more importantly the story actually tells us the canon version that Snape only flipped sides very late (presumably due to the whole Lily got targeted by the prophecy sittuation as in canon). Problem is that means Snape joined the Death Eater on his own vollition presumably because he actually believes in their evil dogma (at least to some degree).

4. Harry assumeing Snape is good is just inexplicable. Some codded flower language can't make up for the constant outright bullying as a teacher the other houses, Grifindor in particular recieve from his side.
Also Harry kind of ignores the treatment his sister recieves from Slytherin with Snape's help. Snape might not resort to ourtright blood purist language and behaviour (anymore), but he certainly covers for Slytherin's who do and makes sure they don't get punished for rascist motivated bullying.
At best Harry could assume that Snape isn't out to kill him. But he certainly would have to concede that Snape will use a referee position to favour Slytherin. Simply because evidence proofs that is what he is doing for the house cup all the time.

Overall nice ideas, but I really can't get past some of the tropes I just don't like. At other points the implications of some plots were not executed to their logical conclusion simply because the author wanted to have certain characters and events in certain ways.

A competent Quirrel was a nice touch though. It would have been better, if Harry's mistrust of him wasn't so out of the blue though (in particular with a Snape who behaves just as antagonistic as in canon). It would have been better had there been an actual reason (like some observations of shady behaviour) or maybe even better had HArry actually trusted and admired Quirrel only to learn the hard lesson later.

To be fair to Ron:

You just found out that your rat is a death eater and HarryHermione (Mary and Gary Sue) get orders of Merlin. You’re a bit jealous sure. But then you find out they don’t even want it! Like what did they have to say that? They DO deserve it, they’re just being infuriating
