    This story has some problems with believability, but also has much to recommend it. Despite the problems, it was still usually an engaging read, and I look forward to the next installment (currently only 33 chapters are published).

    The worldbuilding around what is possible with magic, and what a magical world with more sensible institutions would like, is quite interesting. This includes the better Quidditch rules in chapter 22, Harry’s phobia, and the Fidelius shenanigans.

    The plot developments are also surprising and clever. The political maneuverings show depth. And I like the glimpses of the darker, rarely-written-about sides of the wizarding world such as the whorehouse and the lustful ghost.

    The building of the harem is a bit unbelievable, especially in how it starts. How did Harry convince Hermione’s parents to let him tutor her in math behind closed doors for so much time? Why do all these girls like him so much after merely spending time with him, and why are they so happy about him being their “lord” in some cases? Culture could explain some cases and individual personalities could explain others, but there are too many girls for that to be a believable explanation for all of them.

    However, the characters in the harem are all different enough, and eventually have enough interesting stories of their own, that I can forgive these mistakes and still enjoy the story, though the flimsy premise is always in the back of my mind reminding me that it could have been greater.

    Another disappointing element of the story is that the AU elements are not very clear, though that hasn’t been as much of a problem in later chapters. Magical institutions were arbitrarily upgraded just to make them cooler, but only as a side note, which means I can’t predict when one of those differences could affect the plot. Albus being relatively evil is also cliché given that it isn’t the main premise of the story, though a partial explanation has been hinted at that at least ties his actions to one of the original magics of the story, so it’s mostly but not completely out-of-the-blue.
