Contrary to popular belief Dumbledore was never actually trying to fulfil the prophecy. If you take him from the books he explains prophecies as essentially self fulfilling nonsense, the man was more then wise enough to understand that he bore very little influence in how everything would inevitably play out. You can take how everything played out and assume and theorize but at the end of the day all we have is what we know and I truly wish more fanfiction writers would be unique rather then all go the mildly to extremely manipulative Dumbledore route cause most of it clashes far to much with his character unless you go extreme OOC.

I always found the idea that the potters spent the family fortune on the war effort completely idiotic and ignorant on the writers part on how war works. The main points of war are arms, munitions, and transportation. These three aspects of war are where most of the money goes, for the magical world those three aspects mean nothing. They can immediately be anywhere, they already have a wand and munitions don’t exist for them. So what exactly is it that james and lily spent all their money on for the war effort?

What is it with people "upping" the age of HP characters?
Is it to feel righteous? Less morally questionable?
Laziness to write compelling children?

This was a pretty good fanfic. Thanks for writing it, although I'm sad to see it looks like it's been abandoned at this point.

A satisfying chapter. Although it's a bit annoying Fudge is still capable of keeping Pettigrew's testimony about resurrecting Voldemort quiet. I'm sure they could get all of those details out of him with some veritaserum, if he wouldn't admit to it willingly. Nice job by Tonks getting stationed at Hogwarts and getting her job back at the same time lol. Dumbledore might also be a little happier knowing that even if aurors are being stationed at Hogwarts, at least one of "his" (although she's more loyal to Harry) people is in charge of them.

What I want to know is how Ron ended up wearing the locket in the first place. Was he actually dishonest enough to grab it and put it on from his own initiative, thus purposely stealing from Sirius? Or did the locket influence him enough to make him wear it and not take it off? I don't remember the locket actually encouraging people to put it on in canon, unlike the ring or the tiara.

Glad Harry shut down Molly and isn't just going along with wasting his time with grunt cleaning that could be done faster and easier with magic, or that Dobby would happily do. It's a bit surprising he was able to win that argument so easily with Molly not even being too upset with him, but I guess you are writing a slightly more reasonable version of her than I'm used to lol.

I think Harry is going too easy on Hermione and Ron here. He is basically just saying don't worry about treating me like crap, because "anger doesn't solve anything" and he still had a good summer.
It doesn't change the fact they were totally willing to turn their back on him half of the summer, knowing he'd been through something pretty terrible at the end of the school year, including seeing a fellow student die and being tortured and stuff (and then had to go back to his abusive, hate filled relatives). And they were willing to do this simply because an authority figure said so, with no explanation on why it was really necessary.
If you just give people free passes to be disloyal friends and treat you poorly, you are going to end up surrounded by flakes and fair weather friends. He has a right to be upset. Either lecture them and hold them to a higher standard until they change their ways, or get better friends (he has sort of already done the latter). The fact that he's matured means instead of just yelling and being angry, he can have a rational conversation with both of them and explain why he is upset and how they let him down. Because they really did. Even if Dumbledore bears some of the blame as well for being too controlling and kind of an idiot (what adult that has been working with children for as long as he has doesn't realize the damage to Harry's mental well being he was inflicting, not that ordering everyone to tell Harry nothing this summer was his only example of idiocy when it comes to looking after Harry).

Is this fic still being updated? No problem if not, Life does happen.

I wish this story would continue but I’ve lost all hope it will. One of the better ones that went unfinished on this site. I’ll check back in still every now and then!

I'm really not a fan of how the romance between Fleur, Harry and Tonks is handled here.
I mean isn't Fleur just cheating on Harry ? When she started flirted and even kissing Tonks had Harry explicitly told her he was okay with bringing Tonks into their relationship ? Because it just looks like Fleur is assuming she knows what he wants without discussing it with him first, and that's a huge red flag that she doesn't really care about his opinion.

This chapter felt pretty artificial to me.
If Fleur is insecure about her specie past why is she mentioning it in front of Tonks someone she just met a couple of minutes ago ?
It's kinda obvious you want Tonks to join the pairing and just throw a random explanation for it to happen but that was incredibly forced and awkward.

Being manipulative and being charismatic aren't mutually exclusive.
