- If you don't like the plotholes, i suggest reading Harry Potte…
Fa/tv/irgins discuss Harry...
I despised MoR, it literally created problems so Harry could bitch about them. The writing was subpar at best, and Harry himself was an unlikable little shit. That 25-hour circadian rhythm was dumb as hell, too.
Oh no, the main character has an actual character flaw instead of being an easily pitiable mild abuse victim, how horrible!
There's a difference between a "minor character flaw" and being a horribly written character. If I'm going to be reading a story from a character's point of view, I should at the very least be able to tolerate them. But Methods of Rationality was a horribly written story with a horribly written character with deliberately crafted plotholes to make the main character seem smart.
If you're going to make a story to point out holes in another story's narrative and world-building, at least use the ones that are already there for you to point out.
Oh yeah, I remember how Time Turners totally had a protective shell in canon. Shesh, I can't believe he would just make them easily breakable for his own story.
Gosh, and remember all those straps the kids had to put on before riding brooms, those were super safe already!
The worst one had to be how he changed the rules of Quidditch just to make fun of it, I mean really, since when have sports ever used any sort of timing system?
Need I go on?
What stuck with me the most, and poisoned the rest of the story, was that weird drink that forces some sort of coincidence. I know Harry Potter has some weird shit, but casual reality bending with every sip? PLEASE tell me I misread that or I'm misremembering, because if that pile of shit is supposed to be indicative of the rest of the story, then sign me out and get me off that ride ASAP.
Did...did you not read the explanation of that after he got the Time Turner?
The drink just had a minor compulsion charm on it that made you take a sip when something you would find funny was about to happen, and even then it could be easily resisted, as Harry did during the Headmaster's opening speech, and instead ended up laughing/coughing to himself at the table instead of drinking the Comed-Tea.
it was super powerful, but that was because he was ignorant of what magic could do at the time, so compulsion charms didn't occur to him.
It was actually less powerful than the charm that prevents Muggle's from seeing the Leaky Cauldron.
See, it was so goddamn stupid at the time, and Harry so unlikable throughout what little I read, that I stopped reading pretty damn early.
Dang, I'd really give it another try. Harry definitely grows as a person/character throughout the story (as most 11 year olds do, including a lot of the main characters), so some of those traits you don't like might end up getting changed as Harry learns from others (remember that he's basically a social shut-in aside from his parents, one of whom is a huge math/physics nerd).
Basically, if you liked the chapters where Harry and McGonagall go shopping (that robe buying scene will forever be my favorite), you should end up liking the rest of the story overall. There will be some points that make you want to drop it, there were definitely 2 points for me, spoilers though, but the rest will easily make up for it, in my opinion.
Harry in the MOR is kindof a dick though..
I much prefer Harry Crow.
oh course hes a dick. he thinks hes smarter than literally everybody but hermione. plus the fact that everyone treats him as a child despite that.
Of course fanfiction isn't allowed to be just printed and sold. What is being a bitch about that?
