Title: The Art of Self-Fashioning Author: Lomonaaeren Rating: M Genre: Adventure/Drama Chapters: 65 Words: 293,426 Updated: July 28, 2017 Published: October 29, 2015 Status: Complete Library Category: The Alternatives Pairings: None Summary: FanFiction: FanFiction.Net Review: A story who portrays a studious (Ravenclaw) Harry Potter who at the same time have a strong resemblance to canon. He doesn't study because he likes to study, but because he has a goal in his life. He is very skilled when he puts his mind into it, and average/above average an anything else. Harry is a broken person and can be ruthless if someone stands in his way. But he isn't evil and still makes friends (even if he doesn't know what "friendship" is). The other characters is portrayed believable, but have strong similarities with the trio in canon. The pace between first and fifth year is relative fast, but still occur over several chapters. It's a pace that I would appreciate several more authors adopted. McGonagall's person is well written, and show her compassion and kindness below her stern face. The reason she can seem soft is because we only really hear her inner thoughts and only one some occations get the students perspective on her. I give it 3.5, and round up to 4. It's not excellent but certainly deserves it's place in the library. Checked August 20, 2017, labelled as complete.
