    The world has tried to break Harry before. Some days, at his most lucid, he wonders if it succeeded. Either way, he doesn't intend to take it lying down, but from Templars to demons, the trouble keeps coming. Oh and the world might be ending, although that, for once, is someone else's problem.

    This is a good HP/Dragon Age fic. Comes with grammar and punctuation included. Also has a sequel, although the sequel is of a different writing style.

    It's.. ughhhhhh. Besdies the stuff that Taure cares more about than I do, such as magic core refilling, muggles>wizards at everything, other wonky stuff such as it is written in a pretend book, and all of that.

    The issue is I don't care about this story. Harry comes off as strange, but not in a good way. More of why he was written that way that is unconnected. I don't understand half the logic the author uses. The worst example of when Harry talks about the government he made. It ended up being more corrupted and terrible than anything Harry ever fought and his dead friends call him out on this. Wut? Also slash vibes all over this story.

    Then the story itself is some adventure thing that feels right at home with being a generic RPG fantasy thing.

    I liked the story overall, but would have liked more on the history of what made Harry the way he is. And why he couldn't just use magic to either disappear/not get caught/ or kick ass. More on his magic development may also have given the story a bit of a boost. Overall, 3/5.

    my favorite universes for fanfiction are.
    harry potter
    dragon age
    Fate stay night
    So as you can imagine I am immediately partial to this.

    I liked this story a lot but you need to be a big fan of dragon age to appreciate it.

    High Score:
    This is a good and well written story. It has issues, as a whole it owes more to the story-telling style of Dragon Age and so it suffers from the shallow characterisation of a computer game.

    On the otherhand if you want a relatively lighthearted, quick read which combines Harry Potter and Dragon Age well then this is it. Furthermore, it avoids the common failing of crossover stories and avoids making characters overpowered simply by their existence in another world.

    3.5 out of 5.
