    So I've read this and up until they got into the slash pairing, it was kind of interesting. I think the biggest complaint I have about the entire thing is the extremeness in which the author goes about handling Squibs and their role in society, when there are so few examples. The side plots are kind of distracting because while there is no canon entanglement in regards to plot, because Harry at this point isn't Harry any longer in the sense of the bigger picture, I feel like they're just padding word count.

    Some of the more recent updates have been okay, but I think the author is losing consistency in terms of quality of updates

    Aberforth dying I feel put this story in a different gear because prior to that it was Harry pretending to be a squib, but largely not interacting with the cast of characters we're familiar with

    The pirateing shit, the whole squid underground thing, and a few other things are interesting, and go a long way to selling the story as a complete piece. I just wish they'd not spent so long on the first act, when it served very little in regards to setting up the second act. So now we've got a ton of OCs and names to keep up with and that gets really distracting.

    And now that the whole dynamic has changed, its put this story on a firm 3.5/5. There's no real story here. Its an AU time travel story where Harry gets to meet his parents/does shit in the past that has very little impact on the future I feel. The author does the typical MC sent back in time, deathly afraid of erasing their own existence paradox and I think it could just be emphasized a bit less to make the story more tolerable.
