Came across this fanfic, was blown away.

What is it about?
How the Harry Potter story would have unfolded if Harry Potter was a smart kid. Like Sherlock-level smart.

How is it interesting?
Harry attempts to understand how magic works by using the scientific method. (i.e. he probably will never succeed, because magic seemingly defies all the laws of Physics.) (But I may be wrong, I’m only 10% through the book.)

Who should read it?
Harry Potter fans who consider themselves to have a logical mind. Or if you’re a programmer. Or if you just like to watch the world burn. (In this case, people around Harry, because no one is smarter than him.)
