A little more serious than usual, but it fit in with the story.
I like how mature Harry is, but can act like a kid caught up in a moment. I also like how his and Daphne's relationship is progressing. It seems to be in a stage where they're attracted to each other, but not quite in love. She'll have to get used to Hermoine since she's one of Harry's closest friends.
Dumbles as a manipulative coot who doesn't get why he can't control everything and have it be 'good' works well, and as much as I'd like to see something bad happen to him, seeing him get jerked around by Harry and Neville is more fun.
Nice to see Ginny isn't pretending to like Harry and saying she wants his money. Seeing Harry reject her publically with the twins blessing would be funny. Maybe Harry could have Marilyn Manson's version of 'Tainted Love' playing in the background. If she thinks Harry will crawl to her, she belongs in St Mungo's next to Lockheart.
Poor Hermoine. Just goes to show everyone can make bad choices. With friends like Harry and Neville she'll recover.
Ron being an ass isn't surprising, the worst part is he doesn't realize what he's doing wrong and probably wouldn't if pictures and small words were used. He's also being a mama's boy, not considering Hermoine because she's muggle born and 'mom would pitch a fit'. Yeesh.
I'm looking forward to seeing the next chapter of this.
