Draco Malfoy and the Practice of Rationality

A continuation of Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, focusing on Draco in his second year. I try to not deviate from HPMOR, but I may make mistakes and there are some plot points open to interpretation. More political than HPMOR, but still some cognitive psychology ala Harry's Lessons. And not nearly as good, so lower your expectations.

If chapter 104 had been written by someone much stupider

It wasn’t every day that you got a message from yourself from the future.

“Davies has the Quaffle!” Lee Jordan shouted in a world that didn’t matter very much and was rapidly receding in importance. “Oh…! And the Snitch is gone - maybe gone for good, after being missed that badly!”

Harry ignored the foreshadowing. The parchment said:

He dying

Don’t wanna

Halp

Go to corridor between Charms Classroom and supply closet

Watch out for like Aurors and stuff

Have written this in secret magical ink so to outsider looks like super smart code but u can read it real easy

Harry worried that he might be an idiot, but he was more worried that Professor Quirrell was dying. He surreptitiously gathered his things, instructed Uzumaki Naruto to keep an eye on things at the Quidditch match, and headed off to the corridor between the Charms Classroom and the supply closet.

Harry Potter and the Midlife Crisis.

"I was supposed to be the greatest wizard of all time! I have very epic and heroic past. And look at me now! Managing a mediocre cauldron store in Diagon Alley? Come on! I refuse to accept that I've peaked at 17 years old!"

"Well, wasn't this kind of predictable, Harry?" asked Ginny in a slightly annoyed voice. "Your main virtue was always courage, not intelligence or entrepreneurship or cunning. There's a reason you went to the Gryffindor. And courage is pretty useless in peaceful times."

"Yeah, Hermione is a famous scientist and inventor now, not to mention political activist, and the main advisor for the minister of magic." said Harry wistfully.

"Oh, come on! Not about her again! Sometimes I think you wish you'd marry her instead of me!"

I'm sorry

[WP] When you were younger you murdered 4 people in cold blood. 30 years later you meet the man who confessed and went to prison for your murders.

"Hello, Vincent."

Vince froze in place, staring in shock at a man who stood in front of his door.

"Hello, father." he looked in the cold blue eyes of a man he hasn't seen for 30 years. "Come in."

"Doctors say I do not have much longer. I've come to say goodby." another shock. Father was always terse and got straight to the point.

Harry Potter and the Methods of Super-Rationality

As Harry considered the horrible situation set before him, something very unusual indeed happened. In an instant, his conscious thoughts were obliterated by the sudden influx of thousands upon thousands of answers to the very immediate problems before him. Some answers were nonsense, some were lunacy, but each one was some crystalline piece of a many-dimensional jigsaw puzzle, provided as if by some great over-mind. A gibbering fiend from another dimension that spewed cacophony from a thousand madness-blackened mouths.

It was in that instant that Harry James Potter-Evans-Verres awakened as a Super-Rationalist.

Voldemort felt a fraction of this through the link, and wasted no time with pointless questions. He had already pre-committed to this. The order went out to the assembled Death Eaters.

“Stun him.”
