Significant Digits

by Alexander D

•  A continuation of HPMOR.

•  Completed.

It's easy to make big plans and ask big questions, but a lot harder to follow them through.  Find out what happens to Harry Potter-Evans-Verres, Hermione, Draco, and everyone else once they grow into their roles as leaders, leave the shelter of Hogwarts, and venture out into a wider world of intrigue, politics, and war.  Not official.

"The best HPMOR continuation fic." -Eliezer Yudkowsky

"[A]bout half of the chapters leave me wondering
if I've been pranked by the love child of Andy Kaufman and Milan
Kundera,who shuttled back and forth between his parents and had David
 Foster Wallace as a babysitter."  -TaoGaming
