One of the funniest HP crossovers ever written. It starts out as a pure comedy where an overpowered munchkin of a D&D wizard is unceremoniously dropped into the HP world and all the wackiness that follows as he messes up the original HP plot... but after a while it begins telling its own story, forces the main character to go through a lot of development, and introduces real consequences to his actions. It never gets completely serious, and there's still a lot of comedy in the later chapters, but it does develop a pretty intricate plot of its own. Recommended for anyone who's a fan of Harry Potter and/or D&D.
Everyone should read this fic. People who like HP, people who hate HP. People who played Dungeons and Dragons and people who never had. Americans and Brits. Real Men, Roleplayers, Munchkins, and Loonies. Even Hufflepuffs! Not that that's anything to be ashamed of, of course. Perfectly respectable House.
I play d&d, so I'm not sure how this would read to someone who doesn't, but even putting that aside this is a genuinely astonishingly good fic. I was very surprised at the emotional depth of something which is billed as a parody, and honestly it really moved me. I would recommend this wholeheartedly.
It's funny, dramatic, tragic, and exciting. This is probably one of the top ten Harry Potter fanfics ever written. The gradual progression from comedy to drama is well done, and the comedy remains throughout.
Milo is a munchkin in the classic, hilarious sense of a minmaxer. Their development as a character, though, interacting with different characters in the HP world with world-shattering spellcasting chops of D&D is what really sells the story. And, despite all the spells, it manages to be highly funny throughout.
I have never played DnD. This story still manages to explain enough for me to get its magic system (or enough of it for the situation at hand at least), its appeal and its humor. Definitely worth a read.
I've read this a few years ago and while the particulars escape me at this point, and I never felt the need to revisit this story or catch up on it, I do remember immensely enjoying myself and actually laughing at quite a few of its jokes. Worth reading once and to have a great time doing so.
