A study in magic

When Professor McGonagall went to visit Harry Watson, son of Mr. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, to deliver his Hogwarts letter, she was in the mindset of performing a familiar if stressful annual routine. Consequently, she was not prepared to find Harry Potter at 221B Baker Street.

A somewhat confusing mix

Harry is adopted by Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, it’s a difficult story to relay. Sherlock in the story is only 60% there in what I would imagine him being in either the tv series or the movie, but alas it is fanfiction, so some leeway must be given.

Harry Potter is neither portraied as Over Powered, or extremely intelligent, there is hints of trauma, greater than even the original story, but this story does not dive very much into it. John Watson is a woman, which is prevelant throughout the story but doesn’t really affect the story at all, it’s only some extra flavor for the story.

The story is split in two, with the 2.nd “book” being about the war with voldemort.

My opinion

At times the book was difficult to continue since it was a some points a bit boring to read, and at others exciting. In my opinion the story would have been better of, if Harry would have had a greater intellect, and proper tutelage from Sherlock, instead of a Harry that happens to have been raised with Sherlock.

The end seems to speed to the finish, there is no truly epic finish, it just peters out in the end, leaving you unsatisfied.

Would I recommend it? Not really, there are many greater fanfictions out there, but if you can’t find anything else, and have som spare time? Sure, go ahead.
