Harry Potter and the Super Bowl Breach: Part 2

centaur_warlord_by_spellsword95-d5xgv14This is second part of the review of this fanfiction because the second half of the story was vastly different from the first. This review covers Chapters 51-100.

Summary: After Judgment Day finished, the world had to figure out what had just happened and how to prevent it from happening again. In the process, Hidden Nations of magical beings are slowly being discovered or revealed, leading to tensions in both the magical and Muggle worlds. One top of this, Samuel, son of Eli and the Prophetess Deborah (as ghosts) are attempting to unite the Abrahamic religions into a singular religion.

Status: Meh

Opinion: The introduction of the Hidden Nations (veela, centaurs, mermaids, etc.) in the first chapter after a massive volley of explosions in the first half of the story was extremely jarring. It felt like all the sudden I was being introduced to a massive amount of new people, with no backstory, and no depth and then expected to know what was going on. The people that the readers had met in the first half of the story barely showed up and had no character development at all. It felt like the story was 40% Hidden Nations, 35% Religious reunification, 15% science interacting with science and 10% wizards figuring out how to use magic for money and muggles suing wizards for money. I felt like I was reading a discussion on what would happen if the Abrahamic religions decided to join together more than a story about magic. In the end, I started losing interest about chapter 60 and the story was quickly losing momentum around chapter 70.

Length: Very long. Quite honestly the longest story in the completed folder. It is 100 chapters long, 500 “updates” long, and 1,040,515 words long.

Pairings: Canon pairings only, with many OC relationships

Warnings: There is a lot of religious talk on the Christian/Islamic/Jewish front. If you don’t like religious discussions, this is not for you.
