YMMV / Knowledge Is Power

Go To

YMMV tropes in Knowledge Is Power:

  • Accidental Innuendo: Sirius sees how happy Remus is in his new relationship and decides he wants to get back into the dating scene himself:
    “Sirius was just going to have to do a Moony, he needed to get up off his arse and go for it.”
  • Crack Pairing: Ron/Millicent Bulstrode, and Lupin/Professor Sprout.
  • Designated Hero: Lord Potter, or as one reviewer dubbed him, Lord Stalin.

  • Die for Our Ship: One suspects the Weasleys wouldn’t be vilified so much were it not for the Harry/Hermione ship. At least they are treated better than in In This World and the Next.
  • Lost in Medias Res: A common complaint in the FanFiction.Net reviews is that the story is hard to follow, with the actual fact of what has happened not becoming clear until the end of Chapter 3. One of the few things the Updated Re-release changes is to make this clearer.
  • Narm:
    • The concept of “Death Eater points”. If you torture enough captives, presumably you can send off for a commemorative pen.
    • Later in the same chapter, the following is very apt to make readers think of the many times characters are revealed in this way in My Immortal:
    “They were nearly at the doors of the great hall when all their carefully laid plans went tits up, [sic] neither Harry nor Hermione could believe who had caused it, Hannah Abbot!”
    • Sirius decides that he needs to re-enter the dating game after seeing how happy Lupin is with Sprout. Unfortunately, his internal monologue phrases it like this:
    “Sirius was just going to have to do a Moony, he needed to get up off his arse and go for it.”
    • Though it’s clear from context what “Dumbledore played the werewolf card” means, it still looks like he took a break from his evil scheming for a quick game of Magic: The Gathering.
  • Old Shame: To an extent. When he posted the first chapter of his “reimagining” Proud Parents, robst admitted the story is really showing its age and that is why he has chosen to rewrite it for a second time.
  • Ron the Death Eater:

  • Strangled by the Red String: Harry and Hermione have a soul bond that comes with dire consequences for anyone who messes with it, but aside from that, we aren’t shown why they’re so good for each other.
