Summary: Terminal Justice is a continuation of Make a Wish and Hunt for Harry Potter. Therefore, you should read both of those works before proceeding with this story. In the original MaW story, the concept of Mr. Black was introduced. The RB-written sequel proceeded to focus on Harry's attempts to salvage his personal 'Harry Potter' life. My intentions for this project, on the other hand, is to explore and develop the Mr. Black persona via exposure to the Justice League and its environs.

During his journey in the JLU universe, Harry will learn additional applications of his "superpowers" while continuing to develop as a frequently misunderstood person. As a result, the 'Mr. Black' persona may grow and change from its initial conception in Make a Wish. Rest assured that any serious alterations will have first been approved by Rorscharch’s Blot, and will not require an extreme suspension of belief.

Ok I did a search for IT/Overkill/The fics name so if its listed here already not my fault :P I think this guy did a great job expanding on the make a wish uni.

If you are really having trouble getting to that archive it is also listed under under the folder 'Mr Blacks further adventures' in the file section of Rorschach's Blot's yahoo group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/caerazkaban/

Terminal justice is quite possibly the best HP fic that I regularly check for updates. Its very amusing.

5/5

Fixed link to point to the directory where all the chapter files are.
Here's a proper link to Chapter One (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CaerAzkaban/files/Mr.%20Black%27s%20further%20adventures/Terminal%20Justice/TJ01.html) if you're curious. But you shouldn't ever link using the yahoo dump information, because that changes every 30 minutes or so.

As for the fic? This is brilliant. I loved it at the start and still eagerly look forward to each update. The last couple of chapters have lost some of the magic in my opinion. I've yet to read a fic where Harry 'adopts' kids and the fic doesn't suck the ass end of menstruating skunk because of it. I can see the magical reasoning for him and Kara "adopting" Tim and Raven, but it's just one of the quickest ways to kill my interest.

And it also suffers from the same problem the ending chapters of Make A Wish did. This Harry as Mr. Black was so much more fun lucking his way through things and being the subject of misconceptions. But when you actually make him Death, or he's aware and cognizant of what a super bad-ass he is, he loses that sort of likability and affable charm.

Nevertheless, there's tons of brilliance in this fic. I am eagerly awaiting updates, knew almost nothing of JLU before reading this and it didn't take anything away from the fic. Even with the most recent 'inching towards disappointing' turns in the fic, this is still 5/5 without question for me.

Who in the world is Kara anyway? Its been a long time since I've read any of "Mr. Black" stories. Although I do remember him doin' crazy shit and getting away with all of it.

Edit: Oh, nevermind, I remember who Kara is, its Superman's cousin SuperGirl. So Kara and Harry, eh? Cool, I always thought she was hot. They'd probably be good together, lol.

This was absolutely brilliant, though MaW is always going to be my favorite parody(well, tied with Where In the World is Hary Potter?). The end, as Nonjon said, was slowly moving into the dissapointment category, but I read it through none-the-less. It was still amusing, but more like one of the MaW omakes that got a chuckle, but not a laugh. *shrugs* I'm sticking with it. 5/5

Mm, I liked it, but like nonjon says, it loses a bit of its magic. Still a decent story though. Very interesting.

Great story. I, for some reason, liked this better then 'Make a Wish'. Maybe it's the writing style.

Plus, I'm a big fan of the DC Universe. That might have something to do with it.

Equal to 'Make A Wish,' I must say. I had a smile on my face the entire time. Some parts were funny enough for me to giggle like a jack ass and others were a bit lame. I thought that the last few chapters before chapter 13 were getting to that ending point in Make A Wish where Harry finds out what everyone thinks of him and the story looses a bit of its flavor but I thoughy chapter thirteen brought it back nicely. It amused me that for once he actually 'did' do all those things though he didn't exactly mean to. 5/5. A few parts weren't perfect but then again a few parts were perfect and it did keep a smile on my face the entire time which is all I ask for in a well done humor fic.

This author expects me to read two long-assed fics before I read his?

As if I have the attention span for that ~_~.

If you've never read Make a Wish your are badly missing out, Xiph. One of the best comedies I've ever read, as fun or even more so then Where In the World Is Harry Potter. You don't have to read the second story, it had little to nothing to do with this one, but you won't be able to stop reading MaW unless your girl walks in the door with only a smile on.

Make a wish is worth reading, but you really don't need to have read the Hunt for Harry Potter to understand this fic, there are pretty much no references to it. It might be almost as fun to read Terminal Justice without reading Make a Wish first, although some parts of it won't make sense then.

I read to Chapter 28 until it pissed me off, then I stopped.

Never regretted it.

I've been following this since it was first posted on CaerAzkaban, 5/5 from me, I think it's just as good as MaW, except I like the writing style a bit more.
Now that I think of it, it seems like fan-fictions have more potential to be enjoyable than the original stories, the main problem being wading through all the crappy Fanfics to find the gems.

It took a while but there's a nice fat update to this fic. (15,000+ word chapter)

If you're already a member of Rorschach's group, here's a direct link to the new chapter. (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CaerAzkaban/files/Mr.%20Black%27s%20further%20adventures/Terminal%20Justice/TJ14.html)

Another fun one. Lots more gods and goddess stuff, raising the stakes to the point where fighting evil super-villains pales in comparison. Nevertheless, still light-hearted and banterrific enough that fans of the story will definitely enjoy this. Author says next chapter is nearly complete and shouldn't take as long to post. And we're probably only 2 chapters away from this spin-off crossover's conclusion.

I love Mr. Black. Kind of wish Harry were still at least partially oblivious to the chaos he inadvertently causes, but its still funny as hell. Hope Rorschach writes the next one soon.

This story is one of my favorite current WIPs. It started out as a great continuation of Make A Wish, twisting it to be fresh and funny and not just sort of tired, like MaW was in the end. Overkill is starting to suffer from the same syndrome, especially since in the latter chapters Harry's gone from being powerful yet clueless to just being really goddamn powerful. I like how this last chapter has gone back into the area of Comedic Misunderstanding Contributing to Plausible Absurdity, though the story'll never really capture the magic of the first half, which is just plain hilarious.

On a side note, I'm sort of glad this story is finishing up soon, so maybe the author can start working on his other WIP, which is sort of a guilty pleasure of mine.

Really? You don't think maybe the author is active but focusing on a different fic at the moment? Like say, perhaps the point of this thread?

Punctuation is your friend.

Punctuation is your friend.

considering that he abandoned the story nearly 5 months before the first chapter of TJ showed up its possible that he will someday return to it.
More likely is that he won't because in that case he'd have said something in a note or in his profile.

But yes, maybe i should have made my post a tad clearer, i meant that i doubt that Overkill will return to the story linked in the post above me, since he dropped it a while before he started posting this.

Back to topic: The first 5 - 6 chapters are truly funny in the same way that MaW was for the first ~30 or so chapters. After that i'd say its a guilty pleasure as well.

It just updated, and with a huge chapter too. Some of the previous outtakes were included, and it's a good new chap.

It's been getting awkward (and taking itself too seriously) with the enormous power increases, but 14 and 15 have gotten it back on track with the funny.

Thanks a lot.... I thought that Chapter 17 was out, however the update you refer to is a month old (I think it came out on December 6th). While I usually lurk around these boards if the update is more than a week old can you put in a date that the fic updated? Thanks.

This fic was pretty awesome like MaW, but just like MaW it got a bit... lame. I agree that a lot had to do with Harry/Black finding out about his reputation and living it up, but for this particular fic it's cause of Harry getting kids. It just kind of threw it off the humor track when he adopted emotional damaged kids from crappy situations. Now if his kids from the near distant future went back in time for no reason other than to create havoc... cliche but at least it's more humor like. I just hope theres more variation of the character where he crosses over into other dimensions. It'll be hard to picture a continuation when Black knows he's Death, but who knows. I give it 5/5 for the beginning 10 or so chapters, but 4/5 overall.

Verminard

I've enjoyed it. But when Harry learned all the crazy shit that went around him was due to him being a god among gods it lost it's charm. Half the fun was Harry blundering around oblivious to most of it.

This is something I like to read over and over again, like much of nonjon's, Rorshack's and Ruskybyte. (Yeah, yeah, I know) and I continually awe over how many haven't heard of it. Chapter eighteen is up, right? Or not.

nonjon
10-30-2008, 02:49 AM
Finally updated with a 22,000 word chapter 18.

I've pretty much accepted the idea of Harry's slapped together family and kids, and I've gotten over the turn towards real apocalyptic power, Harry as death, a god of sorts, etc... Even re-read the whole thing a few days ago.

And the new chapter is just as enjoyable as the rest of this story. We're right at the end and seeing this massive highly entertaining thing finished soon, in my opinion, asserts this fic's place as one of the great fun reads and potential rereads around.

Sure it has flaws and occasionally took an unexpected or unnecessary tangent I wasn't crazy about, but anything lower than 5/5 feels too low.

If you liked Make A Wish, and haven't read this, you're missing out. Not as laugh out loud funny as Rorsh's initial creation of Mr. Black, but every bit as delightful. And with much better spelling, punctuation, and formatting.

A good number of smiles and a few chuckle out loud moments.

I thought some of the scences could have used a bit more set up, but that may just be me.

My vote for best new chapter in HP fan fic for oct. 2008 at least.

I've enjoyed this story as its progressed. I believe that the new author managed to stay true to the characterisations of Mr Black, and the plot is original as well as good enough to follow the original series. This new chapter is no exception.

The only negative is the update time, but that's bearable with the 22K chapter that's been put out.

I've read MaW, but not the sequel, never really got into it, I read a bit of it, thats it.

Could I still pick this up? I really have no desire to read the sequel to MaW, I remember hating it.

TehLicha
10-31-2008, 07:10 PM
Excellent. I can't believe I never found this gem before, this really is a great story. I love the characterization and the ridiculousness of the JL's guesses towards who he is. It's amazing how the author can have Harry interpret his life in a way that implicates specific other people. Although, I don't like how he actually did become a god, but it's still very interesting.

Jon
10-31-2008, 08:52 PM
Elli, yeah you can MaW is enough for this.

TehLicha, the power of belief is what did it.

The more people believe that Mr Black has done something/Is Something the more likely it is that it will be true.

I'm on the second chapter and with the nod to the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy I know that I have no choice to give this a 5/5 eventually. I don't even have to read it, I'm that much of a Guidomaniac.

Loving this fic but chapter 8 would have been so much better without the god's and goddess' thing in the middle.

I swear, I read that sentence a few times before I caught it's meaning. And to be honest, DC doesn't do it any worse then Marvel, in which the entire Asgardian Pantheon is active...

I loved the story itself, though it's a hassle to keep myself updated it. Fairly well done, especially for a spin off, though there were some moments where it seemed like inherint Blackness of Mr. Black was rationalized, when I thought it best if that attribute of Mr. Black was best left unattributed. Other then that, I very much enjoy the story.

Exactly and that's my issue with it, by explaining the whole thing this turned from being an amusing parody/crossover into something trying to be serious and although it was still very funny places, rationalisation ruined it for me. Still a 5/5 for its very good moments but not as excellent as it could have been. The Mr Black concept is entirely dependent on the amusing sequence of uncontrolled, random and favorable events that afflict Harry in his travels, by giving them some logical, rational basis it dulls the humor slightly.

True about the Marvel, my point JLU tended to bring gods into everything going so far as to make Diana out as Hades 'daughter' I should have clarified that better.
