    Summary: The war is over. Voldemort won. The light's last hope is a desperate ploy, concocted by an insane genius, that probably won't work anyway. Now Harry must find a way to win a war he's already lost once before.P

    Very enjoyable story, with several funny moments.

    Yeah, I read this before. Really enjoyed it. The beginning with the entrance in the Great Hall was a little over the top though. I would have rathered he come in indiscreetly instead of making such a big scene, and screaming at Ron and Dumbledore in front of everyone. But the rest was good. I especially liked it when he tortured Malfoy for information. That was awesome.

    This is a nice story. It is kind of annoying how many times he points out that Ron knows nothing about the muggle world, though.

    Hmm now that i think about it has there ever been a fic where a pureblood is even somewhat confident in the muggle-world. Not including muggle-raised, killing or torture of course.

    I have read several stories were one of the Malfoy's usually Lucius knows quite a bit about the muggle world as he "studies the enemy"

    Damnit, gah, I just got excited and ran to see if Ruskbyte had updated any of his stories. Though honestly I was more interested in 'Culture Shock' than 'Backwards Compatible.'

    Though apparently he's started another story as of July.
