Speaking as a little sister, Daphne is being just a tad too hard on Astoria. First, she’s only like 10 or 11 compared to Daphne and Harry’s 13. Second, her little hugs and coyish looks wouldn’t steal Harry from Daphne since Harry 1. likes Daphne not Astoria, 2. Harry wouldn’t ever see Astoria except outside of meals in the Great Hall because she’s so much younger than he is and 3.
it’s making him awkward and uncomfortable because he already knows he likes her older sister so he wouldn’t do anything about it. And third, even a slight smarter and more open Harry who is open to possible dating wouldn’t go between 2 sisters like that

I loved this story, seriously, it felt special.
I think it's one of the few, or maybe the only one so far, where I've seen how the relationship between Harry and Daphne is built. In other stories, it usually takes a moment of anguish and then a confession. Here, it just naturally developed, and I could read how things were unfolding; that's what makes it magical.
Fantastic job! :D
PS: My favorite parts were when they used the scrolls to communicate.

Ronald Weasley you bloody b*stard, if reading and writing was boring then I wouldn't be doing it today!

Bardzo sympatyczne opowiadanie,z realistycznie działającymi dorosłymi,którzy dbają o dobro uczniów,starają się wykonywać jak najlepiej swoje obowiązki.
Dlatego sytuacja z Malfoyem jest niepotrzebna,bo stanowi zgrzyt z poprzednią częścią historii. Żaden odpowiedzialny dorosły nie zaangażowałby dzieci[w tym swojej córki]we wyrobienie dorosłego przeciwnika, albo.

Another thing I'm liking. Obviously Dumbledore has his machinations in mind, but unlike in many Dumbles-bashing fics, you haven't portrayed him as a stupid, utterly callous, solipsist asshole who just keeps pushing and pushing no matter how many times in a row his nonsense fails.

One thing I'm liking about this is that you have the kids acting like, well, kids. They're twelve and reacting like 12-year-olds.

This is what I MEAN when I say Harry Potter and Daphne Greengrass make better friends than Ron, Hermione and Ginny. I mean, think about it. First, Hagrid takes Harry to the train
station where the Weasleys JUST HAPPEN TO BE. Molly Weasley shouting about "muggles" at
the top of her voice should have been a big red flag that she was a plant. And later, on the
Hogwarts Express, Ron claims "everywhere else is full". Now that's a lie if I ever heard one.
No, Dumbledore must have ordered Ron and Hermione to be Harry's "friends" in return for
money. I mean, REALLY! Ron has to be one of the worst friends in Hogwarts: getting jealous,
letting his insecurities get the better of him, and continually betraying our hero. Hermione's
equally as bad: mean, spiteful, thieving, always has to BE THE BEST STUDENT. Daphne,
Astoria and Tracey, however, despite being Slytherins, are far more loyal to Harry.

I personally regard "Harry Potter and the Unexpected Friend" as a Harry/Daphne Classic fanfiction story, as it is very well-written, edited and presented and furthermore, it is believable, credible and realistic. More, please!

"Finding Home", the 16th chapter of "Harry Potter and The Unexpected Friend" is surely one
of the best yet, as it added a little more information about the Greengrass Family and its

Chapter 12, "Relationships Worth Waiting For" is the best yet, ever since Harry defeated Tom
Riddle and the Basilisk in a previous chapter. This fanfiction is undoubtedly one of the best
Harry/Daphne ones I have read so far, and it is hugely enjoyable. I defy anyone NOT to

Chapter 8, "The Chamber of Secrets", is a nicer filler for this story, and builds the tension up
nicely, but isn't as exciting as the previous seven. Here's hoping the next Chapters are more
interesting. CaskettFan5 is quite clearly a fan of Harry/Daphne pairings, and this 59-part
story is definitely one that keeps you gripped from the start. I am impressed!

Tracey Ann Davis is another friendly Slytherin girl that I like, and the few-and there are TOO
FEW fanfictions with her and Harry, which is a pity, because like Daphne, she's a truly delightful girl, even if she IS fictional. There should be MORE Harry/Tracey fanfictions, instead
of just a few, and I intend to rectify that oversight with my 2 pending Harry/Tracey fanfictions, "Harry Potter and How to Get a Slytherin Bride" and its sequel, "Harry Potter and
the Art of Happily Ever After". Stay tuned!

As always, Daphne Lenora Greengrass of Slytherin and Harry James Potter of Gryffindor
prove why they are such a marvellous combination. Harry's rash and impulsive behaviour is
easily held in check by Daphne's more cautious Slytherin side and upbringing. Despite being polar opposites, the saying "opposites attract" proves true in stories such as this, and makes
me think Harry should have let the Hat put him in Slytherin. In Gryffindor, Harry was either
let down, stabbed in the back (metaphorically speaking), deserted or betrayed. Hermione let
Harry down twice-refusing to believe he didn't put his name in the Goblet of Fire, and
spying on him for Dumbledore. Ginny also spied on Harry, but Ron was the worst offender. He betrayed Harry in 2nd Year because Harry was a parselmouth, in 4th Year, and most
damning of all, 7th Year, during the Horcrux Hunt, despite knowing it was important!

"Harry Potter and the Unexpected Friend" by CaskettFan5 is one of the TRUE CLASSICS of
Harry Potter and Daphne Greengrass fanfiction. Not only is Daphne Greengrass more loyal than Ron Weasley, less possessive than Ginny Weasley, but she's much better than Hermione Granger in
3 important respects. 1: She does not nag. 2: She knows how to gain-and keep, Harry's
trust. 3: She does NOT turn giving advice into giving a Sermon.
