- Of course, there's the risk of Stumbledore seeing that Harry will refuse to willingly ride to the rescue of the Wizarding world and "reluctantly" decide that a mind-controlled or enthralled, or even marked Harry (A phoenix * lightning bolt tattoo on his right arm, perhaps?) would be needed for the "greater good". After all, /"sacrifices must be made"/.
I seem to recall one or two fics that went down that path...
- I just had a second thought. Instead of promising to be there, Harry should have gone to his Aunt and Uncle, gotten them to write a letter to the headmaster of Xaiver saying they did NOT give permission to go to Hogwarts, and try to get Dumbledore arrested by the muggle police for fraud. Then Harry could go there, and Dumbledore would have been disappointed on Sept 1st. No doubt he would try a kidnapping or something, but Harry should have made the attempt. Not to mention the inconvinence of the fraud and kidnapping charages.
(#) rdgale2000 2008-06-16This is one of the most enjoyable stories I've read in a long time.
He's not having sex with everything on two legs, and he's really discovering magic on his own terms.
I doubt there were a lot of 'schools' around when Merlin learned how to do magic, and it looks like Harry is following in the same path.
Thank you for a great start. I'm on to the next chapter.
- Frankly, I feel that shouldn't attend Hogwash for any reason. Everything about it is out dated by two to three hundred years. But of course the school would never even consider telling a possible student such as Harry something like that! Nor would they tell him that the world they want him to first enter then stay in is extremely bigoted. Nor are they ever likely to tell him that the wackjob who killed his parents as well as his followers is still around and his followers kids'll be attending the very same school he is. So all in all, it'd be far better for Harry to seek schooling well outside of England and Europe.
