A self insert gary stu fanfic fixfic of harry potter. Only its from china, so there are weird names and goblins have eyes that shine with cunning and MC is horrified all his secrets are seen through by ollivander.
MC was a (chinese) huge fan of Harry Potter and read the books multiple times. He then died and reincarnated as a newborn baby in Harry Potter world, he thought it was a normal earth until he got his hogwarts letter at age 11.Secondsafter getting the letter he went with his parents to a business meal...
Remember the business meal during which dobby dropped a cake on the wife of the visitor to get harry in trouble?
well, turns out MC was inserted as their kid. Only this time because of MC meddling dobby gave dudley a pig tail instead (rather uncharacteristic of him, also trying to hug canon). And in few whispers that happened offscreen MC convinced his parents that magic is real, that harry is abused, and that they should bribe vernon with a good business deal to convince him to let them take harry of his hands, so he is now the MCs adopted brother!
MC seems to switch between knowing stuff, such as knowing about harry and dudley and lockhart. To not knowing stuff, such as harry informing him about snape and MC then realizing snape is an a**hole based on harrys description. How did he not know anything about snape if he is such a huge fan that memorized the books?
After 6 chapters nothing really happened, MC faffed about a bit, MC is as studious and smart as hermione with whom he engages in technobabble, giving harry a headache. MC convinces mrs weasley to let him buy an expensive robe for ginny. And for some damn reason MC has a thestral core wand from ollivander. At least it isnt elderwood too, since if it was it would literally be the elder wand.
Also for some reason MC is horrified by having a thestral core wand and wants to throw it away instead of elated at having innate powers over death and being an OP mary sue.
As a fan of the original Harry Potter series, it evokes a lot of nostalgia in me. Over the years, waiting for the next volumes of books in this series, the number of fan fictions that I have read can be counted in hundreds, not only in English, but also in other languages.
I saw different approaches of authors, who created their own worlds, and thanks to this series
some of them even became professionals. Each of these worlds was unique, unrepeatable and presented a completely different approach and visions of the future of the series. Some strictly follow the canon, others have changed it.
When the last part appeared (volume 7), something ended and I thought that from now on only from time to time I would come back to this great series, which left such a huge mark on me, thanks which I discovered what a fantasy genre is, and then the world of the novel both Japanese and Chinese. You can successfully assume that this series has placed me on this track, thanks to which I am here and write this Review.
It was until I was browsing new titles in Novel Updates, in search of the next book, I found this fan fiction - Harry Potter and the Secret Treasures, and thanks to pure impulse, that I decided to once again returned to the world of Harry Potter.
... and again I felt the fire in my heart, which I used to feel in the past, when I absorbed the chapters, one after another like a thirsty person in the desert which was given a glass of water.
This book is not without flaws, none is, but if someone begins to judge, before reading the first 200-300 chapters, this person does not know what he really judge.
Its not about (a bit) of a slow start here, or that the first two years of Ivan at Hogwarts pass so fast. After these 1, 600 chapters, I think that it was deliberate on the part of the author.
The magic of this story depends on descriptions of this world, on incorporate Harrys three friends and the main character, creating four friends, and reading a story that beautifully combines facts and scenes from the canon, masterfully adding new events, creating an epic tale that exceed that, what the original series showed us. Thanks to the approach of Chinese authors, the epic motifs are intertwined into a big world, surprising you just at the moment when you think you know what will happen next, preserving the western the world of Harry Potter.
The magic of this story is also the development of the characters thoughts and personalities, their interaction, description of each of them, and especially - Hermione, who (for me) exceed her own self from the original series.
For me his fan fiction has become what the original series should become. Rewarding a slight disappointment with the last volume of the original series
I could write for a long time, but I will limit myself to a summary, which in my opinion will be an indicator for someone who decides to give this book a chance, which is why:
If the original series made it possible to create this fan fiction, boiling with power, challenges, powerful enemies, and even other worlds, it remains to say... it was worth it.
Though Voldemort is still an integral part of the story, he isnt the last boss anymore. The main baddies are now evil gods with the secret treasures being the weappns against them.
Though it is a bit annoying how the author portrays Ron as an easily jealous jerk, as well as how he always seem to be the pawn ised by the bad guys for their schemes.
The first arc is honestly a bit boring, because its simply HP with the Chinese writing style (but thats because the author simply started the story because of work and didnt think it would get that popular), afterwards there were tremendous improvements plotwise and it is really enjoyable, the only thing that annoys me is that the romance is reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally slow, as long as you are not a hardcore fan who picks on every small detail you will enjoy it, so give it a try and read more than the
The author makes various little mistakes and assumptions about the canon and creates plot holes.
Hagrid knowing Tom is Voldemort from early on.
The Founders being able to speak modern English.
Sirius being actually seen as a DE by bystanders.
The grammar is iffy: Incorrect punctuation, awkward sentences, strange syntax, etc
The lost-in-translation effect of Chinese interjections, descriptions, and swear words losing the connotations in English. Like hearing Voldemort say f*ck over and over again.
There are no major themes. The author repurposes the canon and does low-level wish fulfillment with his main character.
Abridging - It is fine that the canon stuff everyone knows is shortened, but even the original scenes involving Ivan come off as bare bones. If a person has never read or watched Harry Potter before, the entire castle would be solid slabs of stone and everyone would have blank mannequin faces.
Show & Tell - This is definitely a Tell kind of story and not in a good way. The author tells us about the Newspaper Ivan starts, he tells us about the existence of articles, he tells us what each character does.
Character development - Although the author rewrites all the canonical events he does build up to something bigger if the other reviewers are correct. However, we dont see that in the small scale at all.
He takes Ginnys role in the story and basically endures the mental trauma he faces in the middle of the 7th book as a 12 year old.
We dont have exposition scenes, we dont have moments of him relapsing into Chinese habits, we dont have discussions about how he feels about his new family vs old.
He is blank and stale like this story.
He automatically knows the suite of spells from the HP books. There are no scenes of him practicing or even being gifted and talented.
He has no quirks or any other idiosyncrasies to his personality.
Overall - This is an epic length piece of bland tasteless bread in the shape of Harry Potter.
Eating all of it will only result in you asking yourself why did you eat all of this crap when you could have eaten anything else.
This is not a good fanfic because the author is very biased towards certain characters. This was my first fanfic that is why I was able to read more than 1400 chapters. Honestly there are better author insert fics of harry potter out there. The problem with this novel as I said are the characters, like any good novel, Harry Potter is all about the characters they are complex the author for lack of a good word butchered them, Harry does not get any screen time even less than Ron.
Ron on the other hand is shown as the dumbest wizard to ever have existed, he does not learn and is used for creating conflict by the author, in the novels he had redeeming qualities in this one he has none, as for Hermione she is also warped for the worst, the author has a strange obsession with either the character or the actress, she is turned into a female cliche always described as blushing, adorable, small and petite. MC Ivan is not interesting he is either all knowing a typical mary sue or very subdued. He plans ahead, does things that are are very Chinese light novel like, he is a fan of the series and knows a lot of obscure information a casual reader like myself would not know (I read all the novel once about 5 yrs back and have not watched all the movies) but forgets information that is easily remembered, asks redundant questions that he should already know because when the original content of the novel plays out there is a need for him to say something otherwise he feels out of place. He does not match well with the trio that is why the author generally separates him and Hermione from Ron and Harry.
The extra content the author writes is not good, the evil good thing is very xianxia like and with talks about higher/different worlds and magic rule (like laws or dao in xianxia), the characters such as Elaine are very one dimensional. I usually skip the parts where he travels to the different vestiges and such, those parts are quite boring.
when Hermione is in his bed as a cat trapped inside his clothes and licked his chest and later he now as a cat licked her neck or some shit. As I was reading that I laughed hysterically but still it was quite disturbing.
Reading this novel at times it feels like the MC is friends with Harry and Ron because of Hermione as there are very few interactions between Harry and him and at times through the author or the MC you would feel hostility towards Ron as a character.
Low-grade, wish-fulfillment tr*sh. The characters from the original dont feel like themselves and everything comes far too easily to the MC. He also seems to completely lack perspective on the events of the world and I fully expect him to do incredibly s*upid things in the future that still work out due to excessive plot armor.
This is obviously a rewrite of the harry potter series to include the authors character, but thats ok. This version is as tasteful as the original. After having read so far ahead in the raws, its apparent that this author has done a lot of study/research into various historical religions/mythological studies and was able to tastefully incorporate those aspects into the story while retaining much of the original story.
Hermione getting taken by Ivan instead of Ron
but it works well with the theme of the story WITHOUT the nearly ever present harem theme of Chinese novels. Besides, whats wrong with saving characters that died? Just think of it as an alternate Harry Potter Universe.
There are complaints about how the author portrays Ron, however if you really pay attention to both the movie and original novels, the portrayal isnt that far from the mark.
Its actually a nice read. Im a Harry Potter fan and this novel brings new twists to the story and the MC is just as likable as the original characters. Definitely worth reading for Harry Potter lovers who couldnt get enough of the original story.
Giving tips to the golden trio and being an inteligent know-it-all like hermione. Changing the user of the diary to Ron and finally finding a treasure of the founders that can increase your magical power but is necesarry some keys to open
Middle second year the same, the last middle of the year it starts with the big changes presenting news bosses transforming the MC, becoming more OP at least comparing with joung wizard.
In the first half happen all the same with a more intelligent and manipulative Peter Petegrew trying to seems like a hero and freeing Sirius of his crimes. The second half searching and trying to take the key of gryffyndor that is in the forbidden forest and figthing the acromantulas that are being controlled by an evil god, that there are more of them. And finnaly confronting Voldemort without revive and with the help of powerful vampires
Third year the MC is completely OP, at one step of having a power like Dumbledore, so he cant participated in the triwizard tournament because if he participate it wouldnt be a competition
MC takes Hermione and Ron is always in a state like when he have the horrocrux at the DH, being a jeolus jerk, sometimes because he is controlled.
A great fanfiction that can satisfy that people that like chinese novel, with slow romance without harem. The author is relatively faithfull to characters and have a good plot, changing a big part of it keeping the idea of Harry Potter
Great job there! I cant support you in patreon since im just a student but thumbs up to you. My favorite novel that you translated are God of soul system, Hokage: Ryos Path and Harry Potter and the secret treasures, I really love reading those three specially Harry potter and the secret treasures, every time I kept checking if theres a new update XD.
The writer portray Ron as jerked which is too much that make me even hate original character because of it. there is no self defined of any character, feel like machine and the author forcing his own crap to character of original.
But from the author sense of view, the
reader us can feel he hate is own culture or some crap personal experience encounter in his life to write very ironic story of his protrayment of Ivon
the romance sucks, start making progress after ball chapter (648), I dun like how the main guy (Ivon) being very stubborn for hermoine which is too crap for reader to take in (especially me), I bet the author his having delusional of emma watson and the story character which J.K rowling create, Dude (the author) get a life seriously, I do appreciate your unique story and for spending time creating te story but dun insert too much crap to story and stop dumping to much crap too prolong chapters.
you can read this novel if you like Hp fan-fic but I dun recommend to those who can bare naive idiotic main lead inserting in friendship of original cast, also with protection of plot armor with force story to create to much crap on whether romance, character ruining or writer view on his own people (Chinese) hatred..... if can bare it plz do go on.
What can I say, I liked it. Im usually not a fan of fanfics but this one struck gold, Im aware some people just dont like this kinda stuff and I get them but somehow I really wanted to read more. Unfortunately from the looks of it seems like its stuck at 79 and may not move ahead since few people pick stuff like this because it doesnt get
many readers and the current translator just stopped without saying anything, at least if they did I missed it entirely. Anyways point is I like it, think its a decent story and I was hoping to get more of it, specially since it left off at a pretty good point with
MC getting suspicious looks from Granger after she picked him up as a cat and was taking him to a bath which he swiftly ran from but then he saved the f*g brigade at the train from the dementors and his patronus was the same animagus cat he transforms into and a chapter later him and hermione are reading bout dementors and the patronus and learn that the patronus takes the shape of an animal close to you and she just gives him a look but he swiftly tells her not to think too much about it lol
I love reading this Novel. Although its a fan-fiction it is beautifully written, this fan-fic not based on the Harry Potter movies but the books.
It doesnt matter if one has read the Harry Potter books, as long as you know a little about the original characters you will enjoy this novel and if you do know and are familiar with the original books and movies then it feels like you are talking to a fellow fan who is telling
the story from his own understanding to which you may or may not agree with
The story deviate from the start but not much changes in the actual book. MC himself being a huge fan of the story wants to be sided with Harry Potter. The bad part is that even though MC have much knowledge and known plot that happened in the original series, he is careless of the things he changes and an idiot being easily affected by Harrys enemy Draco. He regressed
and became ret*rded about all the things a reincarnated person can become. But he have still have a leeway and wits to figure things out.
Id give this story a 3.5. My first Harry Potter fanfic, and the story was pretty good. Most of the other reviews already touch upon the plot, so I will just mention a couple things I dislike so far...
The first being the romance between the main character and Hermione. In the original story, she ends up with Ron of all people, so I was pretty surprised at the fact that she could be so prideful around the MC when he has pretty much only ever been amazing or brilliant. Their
romance starts off pretty cute, because theyre both so young and are limited to holding hands and kissing. The whole contrived fight at the ball in later chapters did not seem to really align with Hermiones character, but in some ways her change has become better with the MC acting as a foil instead of Ron. I dont really like how much they try and glorify her character, and increasing interactions with the MC just make me dislike her more and more. And as the story progresses, I begin to dread every interaction between Hermione and the MC. He always acts super beta, and is just like *sigh* guess I gotta go do whatever she tells me/back her up even when shes being childish or dumb. Hermione pretty much has the MC wrapped around her finger: dangerous situation? bring me along too! etc, etc.
Another thing I disliked was how pathetic Ron is portrayed throughout the story, with the only explanation being but hes still a good guy... The saving grace for Ron is that as the story progresses, his character becomes less pathetic (but he is still abused by unlucky or unfortunate events, as seen in the latest chapters).
And the author tries to downplay how OP the MC is by highlighting how vulnerable he is or how he underestimates things, like things diverging from the original story line, but that doesnt really give us much fear for the MC who can seemingly do or get away with anything. Voldemort aint sh*t in front of the MC after a few hundred chapters from when he recognized that Voldemort was scary and dangerous. Now Voldy is just dangerous, but not scary.
I highly recommend this one if youre a big Harry Potter fan. There may be some plot holes here and there but if you ignore those its very enjoyable. The only thing Im wish the author would fix is Rons personalities. Right now hes more useless than the original, I just hope he wont make him become a villain instead.
Mcs age is not mentioned before but atleast we know hes 20 years old now. You dont find any distinctive traits of transmigration MC here. You almost forget it as he completely fits into story. But romance is awkward. Very awkward. Hes like
a little girl who always blushes at close proximity with any girl. It cringy as hell to watch him.
God these Chinese authors should stop romance 2 chapters literally 2 f*cking chapters of cringy scene where 2 girls come to his room he hides one in bathroom and another comes. What the f*ck are you trying to do author? Hes like a s*upid dense japanese protagonist now. Why not just introduce two of them. Now I dont understand what the f*ck he is doing. He tries to be in a relationship with Hermione but thinks every other f*cking girl is beautiful. And dont get me started on how Chinese authors describe girls every f*cking time.
