>>7677398 Started out fun and interesting--honestly a pretty good example of a power fantasy/"Mary Sue" done right--but got bogged down by the author's lack of planning and increasingly strident preaching.
>>7677505 >>7677791 Could someone explain the "autism" meme to me in this context. I haven't read the book, but does it have to do with applying pseudo-academic frameworks to things that most people consider unacademic?
It was interseting in the begining where it approached the HP with a scientific view. But then the author makes several characters mouth pieces for his own opinions. While that isn't unheard of he does it so blatantly that it takes away enjoyment from the series. I started reading it because since HP sounded cool not to read the ramblings of a clever man who can't even come up with arguments against himself.
Trash written by an insufferable autodidact with zero academic credentials. No one takes his drivel seriously and nor should you. He has built a community centred around vague and speculative ideas which has grown into a deifying A.I. and transhumanism cult. It's an ideal environment for delusional autodidacts that obsess and romanticize about the concept of rationality. It's a tiny bit more sophisticated version of /sci/, but still utterly and hilariously a shit place to be in.
>>7677398 Horrid, horrid, horrid. The fact that it's held by fans as the gold standard of fanfiction as a medium proves the inherent trashiness of the genre. It makes the original Harry Potter, not exactly a masterly series itself, seem like a zenith of the written word.
The entire affair is the worst kind of self-insert drivel, and its version of Harry is the worst kind of do-no-wrong holier-than-thou mouthpiece for the author's personal, banal opinions on everything from physics to politics. It's akin to an Internet webcomic, where the writer's insert is the precocious always-right enlightened figure surrounded by strawmen caricatures that only exist to enforce how right the main character (and by extension the writer) is.
All thematics and psychological profiling aside, the author clearly doesn't know how to write children characters. They all speak like PhD students who spend too much time on the Internet, which is a huge problem because the main cast are all 11-year olds. Reading a multiple paragraph long treatise on the educational system coming from a literal child that contains the author's "enlightened" opinions is a special kind of torture.
