Harry hopes for a quiet year, but Draco and Pansy have other plans.
(#) mathiasgranger 2008-02-09 01:50:44 PMWell, I have to admit this plot of Pansy's is more boring than anything else. A very underwhelming chapter this time, but perhaps it was necessary for where you are taking the story.
At this point why don't you just have her attack Hermione successfully and than have Draco kill Harry.
Thanks for writing,
- Shakes head...it looks as though a certain bunch of idiots will learn regret the hard way. One would think that Agathon was old enough to know better, and that Lucius would realize that he'd gotten off lightly with Harry's allies on the previous occasion. As for Draco and Pansy, they'd best make the most of their time at school. I think it will be a very short term for them. Just getting on Harry's bad side is stupid, but several of Harry's mentors like her in her own right. As always Dr.T your story is full of intrigue, detail, and excitement! Many thanks!

Looking forward to the fireworks.

Will Draco's little theft do undiscovered until it is used? Are the brotherhood spread so thin that they do not have monitoring on Agathon ( who really needs eradication)?
thanks for continuing this great story
- It's SO aggravating that Hogwarts doesn't even detect, let alone bar Dark Objects. In a world where JKR had some of the most obvious protections on a school, A Teacher used a Blood Quill on a student. I enjoyed this quieter chapter, and its buildup of tension.
Author's responseNow how can the little darlings develop without the staff fully trusting them? You must not be a Pureblood. . . .
- Why are the Griffs against Ginny? Seems like it wasn't her fault, she was only eleven, and she certainly paid the price for her poor choices.
Author's response??? The Griffs aren't against Ginny, either when her role was fully revealed (can't tell which chapter you are commenting on -- but there would be an instant of blame before McGonagall finished her explanations)or after she was reSorted -- but of course, once she was reSorted, she became a Ravenclaw.
Gee, I wonder what Cho and her crowd will think of her. . . ?
