That's actually a good point you raise, and I'm someone who has always considered moral relativism too problematic for its own good. However, I think my point about the underage thing still applies since age isn't really the issue (and I know this seems like shifting the goalposts, and it is, so I apologise for not being clearer earlier). The issue of age is just a convenient yardstick by which we measure these things. It's the power structures inherent in the interaction, and the lack of agency. That's where the moral issue lies. This crops up again and again in this fic, starting with that entirely unnecessary Pansy Parkinson encounter. I don't think even the wizarding world is that backward when it comes to gender (particularly when women seem to be just as enfranchised as men in cannon, by virtue of they having access to wands and an education if anything else). Anyway, I guess I should make it clear that this issue I have with the fic is one of personal taste. As far as objective criticism goes, I think this story's biggest problem is the lack of plot direction and poorly fleshed out secondary characters. Taure, you commended this fic for working within the cliche's of the genre, but I for one would prefer if it rose above them.
