Chapter: Justifies the Means

First off, I really liked what you named his broom: "Volksbesen".... "People's broom", like the "Volkswagen" x) I love it. I also liked how you described the Nurmengard tower. Am I right in thinking it was slightly modeled after the Deathly Hallows? And I also assume that Yuri is related to Viktor? I wonder if he ever knew about this. Anyhow, good story, I liked it! :)

Chapter: Justifies the Means

So, I recced this on the forums and here's what I said there, plus a bit more.

Oh god. Tim is just so good. If you've read Für Das Größere Wohl and for some reason haven't checked out his other fics, you need to see this one. It's a fantastic. Anyone who's dying to know more about his Second Zaubererreich should read this fic, along with everybody else, of course. While this almost OC (He's canon, but not named by JKR) isn't quite the great character that Dieter is, I still very much enjoyed the fic. In terms of characterization, the real highlight is definitely his Grindelwald. We haven't really seen much from the Chancellor in Für Das Größere Wohl yet so it's nice to get a better idea of what he's like, his ideology. This Grindelwald has taken his motto of "For the greater good" to heart and you can see it in his words. His enthusiasm and complete faith in the cause, in the idea that what he is doing is just, is chilling and at the same time brilliantly portrayed.

The thing that I love most about this fic is that Tim shows us what is only part of the road to Yuri Krum's fate of being killed by Grindelwald. We don't actually see that happen. I know if I'd decided to write a fic about him I probably would have first thought of showing his death and I think that what Tim shows us is ultimately much more interesting.

So in addition to this I have some other comments. I love the overall air of doubt in the fic. It's nothing concrete, but Yuri is not sure that what is going on is right. Shoot. I thought of more things I wanted to say as I was rereading this tonight, but I can't think of them now. I'm terribly sorry. Just know that I loved it and eagerly await more about Grindelwald's Zauberreich from you.

"Work will set you free"

I wonder where that was used?

Haha.

It's good I like it. By the way my story inspired by Für Das Größere Wohl is up.

It's not very good, but I'm happy with it.

Fabulous. I loved the subtle references to Dumbledore and "work will set you free." Another great Grindelwald piece.
