Not bad, not bad at all. Unlike the majority of Peggy Sue HP fanfics, it's not just Harry getting sent back: rather, it's Harry, Luna, Hermione and Susan. The four of them have basically been getting revenge upon the people who turned their lives into a hellscape for the last decade, and decide to Set Right What Once Went Wrong in the most brutally violent ways possible. In a very real way, it's a Revenge Fic, or at least that's its main draw: while there are moments of speculative romance, the author seems to mostly enjoy turning those 'long-established truths' of the Wizarding world — and the timeline — into a pretzel.
That's not to say that it's perfect by any stretch. There wasn't enough editing by far, so the spelling, grammar and punctuation suffer noticeably. The pace swings back and forth a lot, and almost everyone is wildly out of character, but that's half the fun: Broad Strokes can sometimes be used for good.
Ultimately, I would suggest this fic for anyone who wants a bit of Peggy Sue combined with some very silly (and frequently disgusting) karma. Especially for Neville.
Anon: Comedy in the same vein as 'Make A Wish', which makes sense as it's the same author. Features Harry as an assassin and Dobby the Cleaner. A hilarious romp through all the various fanfic cliches, blowing them up hither and yon.
Looney Toons: The Blot's writing is not as primitive in this story — he's learning as he goes — so it's a little easier to enjoy. And it still has that strong current of over-the-top-WTF going on. Unlike Make A Wish, though, he's still too early in the story for us to see if there's an overarching direction to the plot, or if it's just chaos for the sake of chaos.
Anon: This is now complete, with a solid ending. Reminds me strongly of Larceny, Lechery, and Luna Lovegood.
Nope. Not good at all. I started reading it, I liked the premise, I loved the creativity of the punishments, but then the bashing got a wee bit excessive and I gave up.
If you like Dumbledore and the Weasleys, don't bother. If you don't like harem fics, don't bother. If these things are of no importance to you, then yeah, by all means, read it, you'll get a good laugh, and it IS a good story.
The premise was good, but failed to deliver. There was lots of summary of James and Lily hearing about Harry, but very little of the actual conversations.
