Potter's First Date

315 Favourites
Chapter 21 of fanfiction Harry Potter & The Methods of Rationality by Less Wrong. [link]

Harry lose the bet (aka reading competition) to Hermione Granger. And the pay for the winner is Harry has to go on a date with Hermione for 2 hours, dressed in such clothing as was provided, visiting such fascinating places in Hogwarts as a tiny burbling waterfall of what looked to Harry like snot, accompanied by a number of other girls who insisted on such helpful activities as strewing Harry's & Hemione's path with Transfigured rose petals.

Harry is pissed.

Just finished my second read through of HP&tMoR, looking over fanart before moving on to the sequel I found as written by someone else, and all I can think of here is that Harry looks like Lelouch from Code Geass.

Oh, this brings back memories...
Good times, good times.

You hit perfection on how you drew Hermione here. I like it when she doesn't look like Emma Watson, who, past the first movie, never matched my head canon for what Hermione looked like.

This is why I don't make bets with smart girls. They're very creative.

His face is so perfect and oh gosh, with the rose petals and the dress, it practically looks like they're getting married, I expect Harry would look about as enthusiastic about that too
love it, fantastic illustration, hilarious job

Ohhh my Rowling this is brilliant. Makes me laugh more and more the longer I stare at it. This is the true romantic nature of eleven-year-old girls, and it is spot-on.

I wanna be a StarKid Actress!
