    Why would you not attempt hard things when writing fanfiction? It's not your work where staying with something safe may be more profitable. Fanfics are all about overly ambitious ideas, that's why the most of the best fics end up being unfinished.

    Why I personally wouldn't attempt such hard things? Because I'd be attempting a Magnum Opus if I wrote fanfiction, one great story to end them all, but the idea of trying something overly ambitious over and over again with no attention to detail makes these fics no better than that guy DZ2 that spams FF.net with a new fic every week.

    I wouldn't necessarily say any of what most people view to be the 'best' fanfics are ambitious. What is Forging The Sword? AU. On Way to Greatness? AU. Ectomancer? AU.

    How does this even connect to the fic we are talking about? It's the author's first fic (at least on this account) and he clearly pays attention to details.

    What?

    He posted a one shot in mid May and from what I remember about this story it was at the end of second year. So I think he's just taking a break to build up a reserve of chapters before he starts posting again.

    So, this is back to updating once a week.

    This definitely has quirks – ex. the frankly really odd decision to make Harry really afraid of women for 'reasons' ... great. Big time anime vibes lol.

    But all in all, enjoyable to read and interesting.

    3.75/5 rounded up to 4 because I think it's worth reading. Not necessarily in the same conversation as a Renegade Cause or Circular Reasoning on an absolute scale of quality, but on the relative scale of the fandom as a whole, especially if considering other stuff being written right now and the availability of quality material, this is worth reading.
