Guys, I am now ACTUALLY SAD for my friends not in fandom, because they will never read Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality. I don't even care about the science! I care about Harry Potter, Dangerously Genre-Savvy ("yay, we completed a quest and got a minion!"), and Hermione Granger, who thinks winning is better than drugs and chose "Do your homework!" as battlecry (and made it genuinely unsettling), and Draco Malfoy, who may be Harry's friend, but still knows that he RUINS EVERYTHING, and Neville Longbottom, CHAOS HUFFLEPUFF.

It is a genuinely well-written and interesting AU and there's all kinds of thought-provoking material about science and philosophy and ethics and societal evolution, but I cannot lie - I AM IN IT FOR THE AWESOME SHENANIGANS.

Is it done yet? I am waiting until it is done to read it!

Having now read the first 3 chapters, I am utterly perplexed as to how I've not heard of it before.

I'm still waiting for it to be finished or the author to not have updated it for over a year before I read it. (Normally after a year of no updates the story is dead in the water)
