A review is one person's opinion. TV Tropes doesn't have an opinion. The person who signed the review does.

Yeah, it's alright.
The cynic in me has issues. There were a few instances where I flat-out face-palmed and inwardly spoke "Okay, no, my suspension of disbelief outright refuses to play along with this simply outrageous premise". One such point is near the beginning, where Harry instructs certain people, who are rather young, to use Sectumsempra on a particularly large target. Not to be 'that guy', but this isn't exactly your average spell; the fact it's kinda sorta a bit of a dark spell also raises some questions, particularly on the morality of risking a particularly large target bleeding to death. Adults Are Useless is a colossal understatement, as their level of uselessness - particularly in regards to the teachers - goes above and beyond expectations. Harry is practically given full reign to do whatever he pleases without consequence, which has a bit of a side-effect in that Harry sometimes acts like an anus. An example would be, say, being loud in lessons and sassy to the teachers themselves, or raising one's voice to loudspeaker levels of noise with magic in the Great Hall to advertise certain things. He is never called out on it, or reprimanded/disciplined, almost like Harry is being given special treatment or something, which as we all know was never a part of the original source material to begin with.

Then again, this is a parody, so it's best not to think too deeply about it. Things do tend to get taken to ridiculous levels, but more in the name of Rule of Funny rather than cold logic. There were indeed moments that brought a cause for laughter, and the fact I was able to rip through all 50 chapters in two long sessions with little difficulty must say something, surely.

... I'm out of things to say. Overall, I'd give it a 3/5, AKA it's alright. Not bad, but not amazing; if I were to describe it to anyone I know personally, I'd describe it as just "a fanfic". I don't know you personally, so read it yourself and make your own damn opinion.
