(#) Darkmark66 2012-09-13A good story but I wonder why Harry went to Minerva of all people she has been no real help to Harry the whole time he was a student. She did not help him deal with his fame, bad press or even help adapt to magical society and as Head of House and his so called family that would be her job.
I liked bonding moment with Teddy Harry would be a good father I think.
I was so very sad when Tonks died I liked her and at one time hoped she would be Harry's girlfriend or wife.
I never liked Remus he seemed to enjoy the pity he received for his condition and he was never around when Harry needed him the same with Tonks for that matter she was left not long after she was married.
I like the idea of Harry a craftsmen, depending on how you spin things with the Goblins Harry could make a fortune from the snake in the chamber of secrets or make peace with the Goblins so Harry could learn craftsmanship from them or maybe from other magical beings as Harry seems to get on better with them than he does most humans.
I think Harry would enjoy making things and they would sell well since he made it unless he hides how he looks and uses a fake name like Olivander might have done after all the name and reputation count rather than who makes the wands.
I do like Andromeda and felt heart sorry for her loss.
It makes sense for Harry to remain in the magical world he never felt like he belongs in the muggle one but the same could be true of UK magical society.
It would be nice if Harry found someone to be with and share his life with the Potter and maybe Black lines need to continue and I think hsaving someone to love would help Harry heal from the abuse of the Dursley's the trials of Hogwarts and the loss of the war.
A Veela would be an ideal counterpart a they are beings of love and Harry needs all he can get and he does have great capacity to love according the Dark Lord Dumbles. Leaving the UK would also give Harry a fresh start and a chance to avoid very vocal Weasley's who would tell all his secrets at the drop of a coin if he does not marry Ginny.
If not a Veela maybe someone older better able to deal with Harry his problems and issues assocated with him. A pure blood would be better still as then Harry could fully learn and adapt to magical society.
I do hope there will be more to this story and thanks for it.
(#) Kasan_Soulblade 2012-10-04i will admit the lack of transition (textually.. descriptivly.. i am using a cell phone if there are lines or symbolic page breaks i cant see them) detracts from the piece. yes clearly harry is talking to mcgonagal about his future... but is it via floo, is he reflecting on his talk with her while visiting teddy, or is he reflecting on his visit with teddy while talking to mcgonagal... the lack of descriptors about where and what is going on as you can see hurt the ability to understand not only where but when the sequence of evets is occuring. concreetly what is happening is up in the air.
on the other hand emotionally this piece shines. his interactions with teddy and andromia (sp) are sweet and feel real. his uncertianty of what next resontes not only through harry but for anyone who thought they knew what they wanted only to find out what they need has changed.
so all in all it balances out.
and i do appologize for the lack of caps nd grammer foul ups. its a limited phone with the cap button being broke...
- Well, now, that's interesting as Harry starts reassessing himself and his future. It should be very interesting to see what he ends up doing since he's clearly not going to be an auror; can't say I blame him, he's had enough of chasing dark lords and bad guys in his short life and it's time for something more constructive. 'Twould be amusing and interesting if this breaking out of the trap of others' expectations inspired Hermione to reconsider her choices, too.
