Being in a severe "wantmorewantmorewantmorewheresthenextchapter" state doesn't help matters, so I decided to read some of the books mentioned in HPMOR.
And it turns out that Ender's Game doesn't suck. At least first chapters don't, I haven't read further yet. It's not HPMOR, but the similarities are clear.
(Myahaha, just found out there'll be a movie, too! Well, about time). So, not as good as Chapter 97, but it helps.
