Harry talks to Draco, Lucius talks to Arthur, they all enjoy a rousing Quidditch match. Harry sleeps and sees Voldemort, and Messrs. Diggory and Crouch get angry.
- nice chapter! great interaction between harry's old and new friends...
maybe harry was a little bit too good at occlumency (projecting himself while he even doesn't know how to clear his mind??) and a bit too fearless with his confrontation with voldie...
...why didn't he mention his vision about a barty? it might have given the former deatheaters a clue that crouch jr. is still alive and kicking??
...didn't like the thought of harry thinking about arranging a marriage with ginny...first i don't really like that pairing (=P)-aside from it being part of a moresome-...second i can't see harry arranging a marriage for connections, he already is the "10th weasley" and while arthur is well liked, he doesn't have that much sway in the pureblooded ministry as a muggleloving unambitious man...bill might be a connection to the goblins, but he works in egypt and i don't think he is that known in england's gringotts...the twins haven't started anything worth mentioning, yet and percy might be of help, if he follows harry's advise...for harry's political schemes it would be enough to be well liked with the weasleys and having malfoy's support and being the boy-who-lived and maybe freeing sirius and thereby getting another prominent and famous name in his boat...remus would be a great help with the werewolves...
but marrying ginny would only decrease his standing in my eyes...politically some might even think that the weasleys use harry and not the other way around...maybe you go a bit overboard with the slytherin-side of harry...i think he would still think a human is a human and not a price/token or some other political/worthy good...
if you think about these lines, you could also say, he should marry hermione because she is the brightest with in their generation and people would be reminded of harry's parents -which were also very popular and well liked- and it would also relax the people that see him suddenly in the company of known dark families....
but alas i think that harry wouldn't think soo shallow of marriage...
...and i'm more a fan of the h/hr-pairing...=P
- Another two excellent chapters. Harry's civility towards the Malfoys is, to me, still a bit odd, and he seems to be far more mature than I am.
The Malfoys attitude toward him is equally strange, but as aristocrats, they would be used to 'making nice' with people they don't really care for.
Harry's conversation with Lucius made me look twice. Your reasoning for it, was compelling. Lucius stands a better chance of survival if he disassociates himself from the Death Eaters, If the rest of them do the same, Voldy will HAVE to seek out new idiots. Still, the Dark Mark is a compelling signal. Arthur, and especially Ron took Harry's apparent defection rather well. Hermione also seemed comfortable with it and the Malfoys seem comfortable with her.
Harry's acceptance of the now dispossessed Winky was sweet and noble. (is Dobby going to be jealous?)
As before, I look forward to the next page of 'To Rewrite History. Alorkin
- What another great chapter, I like that Draco apologize for what he did when he was younger.
I like the wand holster idea, that once you put the wand in, you're the only person to remove it.
I like Harry's idea for Percy to do apprenticeship with a law-wizard, that is a very god idea. I also like that Harry is planing a lot for his future, and sending people where they could be good for him and them.
I'll be a monkeys uncle, the Malfoys being nice to the Weasleys. Who would have thought.
Good, Ron find out that Bagman was going to pay his brothers with leprechaun gold. I now hope that they get real gold.
So some more Death Eaters are becoming neutral, because of Harry, very nice. It is nice that Gryffindors are playing nice with the Slytherins.
So Winky has Harry has her new Master now great, but if Harry also going to have Dobby too?
(#) hpssslashfan 2007-02-15Very well written, chapter. I like how the Weasleys and Malfoys are coming to a sort of cease fire.
QUOTE: "Sir, Winky would like to sleep now. Sir has room in the tent?"
Is wildly out of character for Winky in Canon (she would never have the gumption to "interupt" her masters plans for the night by inserting that she wants something and asking to rest) but is well written for your "new" Fanon.
