Dumbledore, it seems, is beginning to think of Harry as a bit more formidable. I still find it hard to believe that he so thoroughly ignored the "marked as his equal" portion of the prophecy, but such is life.
I hope Harry DOESN'T end up with Ginny, anyone but her. The fact that she went so quickly from stalking Harry to Neville speaks volumes about her depth, though she's probably being influenced.
I'm really looking forward to reading more from you; it's been really great so far.
