    A guest review for Lesser Evils on FFN:

    My guess is this is @LordPotter, the latest exceptional retard that graced DLP's hallowed halls. I don't recall antagonizing anyone on r/HPfanfiction recently.

    That same person (judging by time frame, guest review status, and the level of butthurt), also left a review for LE's sequel:

    The cunt looks even stupider for it, because this story has not even been submitted for review.

    He's somewhat of a regular Anon on FF.net. I recall good comments from him, personally. And while you can debate the tone (or you can't, really, seeing we care about content, not intent): he's partly right.

    The Atrium is on level 8, so you first drive down (from above ground), and then up again (except for levels 9 and 10). It's, like he says, an underground 10 storey-building (though he does appear to get the entrance wrong) :p

    I always love when people tell me how to write my own fics:

    I saw those, Inert.

    They were funny as fuck. Literally none of his suggestions were anywhere near as good as what you actually wrote, and that side plot was a true headscrathcer.

    @Corvus Black I just don't understand the idea of giving someone completely foreign plot ideas in a review. If you feel so strongly, write it yourself. That's how all of my fics started.
