On March 14, the most popular Harry Potter book you’ve never head of, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, will come to its conclusion. It has been running online as a fan fiction for the past five years. It is 600,000 words long and contains 112 chapters. By the end, we’ll be looking at a grand total of 700,000 words and 125 chapters. This will put it somewhere between Gravity’s Rainbow and Route 66 in terms of length.

It has over 7,000 Reddit fans, 26,000 reviews, and a fan-made audiobook.

There will be worldwide wrap parties to celebrate its culmination; throughout its pages there are cameos from its readers as Hogwarts students, little walk-on roles that make them feel alive. It’s similar to the furor that surrounds a Murakami release and celebrated with a passion we only see these days for things like Netflix posting a new series of House of Cards in its entirety.

Much like all things these days, this came to me through word of mouth. Most people agree that it’s brilliantly written, challenging, and—curiously—mind altering. HPMOR (as it’s known by its fans) is categorically not your average piece of fan fiction.

The Hogwarts theme is so silly but like, can you imagine Tom Riddle having to sing it along with the rest of the students?

Like young, future dark lord sitting with the other students and being forced to sing “Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts teach us something please!”

I think that is the very reason why it is so silly.
