    A pleasant adventure the whole way through. Some action scenes (I’m thinking of chapters 75 and 82 in particular) had surprisingly few details and were over surprisingly quickly, but the deep character explorations made up for it. Everyone was portrayed realistically and no one was given the Idiot Ball with regards to time travel. The world was fleshed out in subtle ways such as the Tonks’ favorite club and the painting-editing technique. The main characters Remus, Sirius, and Tonks were very much original flavor, but this story shows some ramifications of their personalities that canon didn’t have the space to explore.

    I didn’t mind the choice to continue the story after Voldemort’s defeat and appreciated the chance to explore a little-known situation in this fandom: post-war peace.

    I didn’t like that Remus’s first year passed so quickly with nothing important happening – didn’t he have time to get into adventures, or research how to defeat Voldemort, or start feeling depressed that he left his old time behind? But that problem only affected chapter 3, not the other 99 chapters.

    An interesting premise (based on this prompt), and a surprising but plausible twist. My only gripes are that the Sorting Hat’s motivations aren’t as clear as I’d wish, and the last sentence is grammatically incorrect.

    A fun time travel story that is mostly humorous but also has a good amount of serious parts (and Sirius parts). It skips ahead through a lot of events, but it’s still interesting enough.

    It’s not complete yet, though… I hope it gets finished. I will reevaluate the “semifavorite” tag when I reread this after it is complete.

    Some cute fluff with a little bit of emotional drama beforehand. I was hoping for a little more significance to the final decision, such as Shinichi and Sonoko having to work together at a crime scene or them having a talk after Shinichi is cured, but the aftermath that is described has some weight to it, at least.

    Summary

    The latest case had been difficult for reasons that had nothing to do with mystery and everything to do with the victim, and Mouri Kogoro has a lot to think about. It may mark a turning point in his life.

    This one will stick, if he has anything to say about it.

    An interesting look at Kogoro’s character and how Conan might look to him. I wish there were another chapter so I could see how Kogoro acts on his new plan and how Conan would react, but I understand Kogoro making the plan is the important part.
