Very engaging story and good ending.
I was one that never knew child abuse was a real thing. Then, in 1980 we moved into a small town pub, that was also a bit of a secret tourist spot as well as a place that people running from things ended up in.
I'd have these blow-ins tell me about what they'd run away from and I just couldn't fathom it. It took a long while to sink in that these things actually happened and I was appalled. My whole extended family was loving and kind. Don't get me wrong, my brother and I would get a cane or palm on our butts for doing the wrong thing, but we weren't abused (even if that's called abuse in these modern times).
My kids get emotional if I even raise my voice at their stupidity. I've never hit them.
When I look back at my school days, I imagine now that's where some of the bullies' mindsets had come from. One of my mates was given a massive amount of pocket money, while I got none, but, that was supposed to feed him for the week, but he spent it on junk food.
Yet, mum and dad took us kids on massively long holidays to the coast, usually dad would find a part time job while there.
I never knew how good our life was until much later in life.
Thanks again for another great story. I wish I'd started at your oldest first and worked my way up

Hi Celebony. I don't usually write reviews before the end of a story. I can't read the stories on this site with my tired old eyes, it gives me a headache at the black on white, or visa versa.
I download everything to word where I can adjust the colours... and edit.
What you wrote about being a bartender is so right. I was one for several years, mostly in small town pubs.
I liked the quiet times, when I had time to talk to the old timers, as well as the busy nights. But, once you befriend those that are often jeered at by the more 'respectable' customers, you find the most interesting life stories. Those that have no one else to tell you of the adventures they'd lived when younger.
One old guy slept under the RSL (Returned Service Men's League), an old gold miner. Another that only turned on his hearing aid, because he said batteries were expensive, turned out to be a millionaire, but lived like a pauper and died in our beer-garden (outside drinking area), waiting for the doors to open.
So many stories, so much advice given, as I could... It's a strange life behind the bar, but so worthwhile. It altered my life and I've had some diverse jobs.
I hear now that one needs a piece of paper from a extra-educational institution to be even able to gain that position. That's laughable to me, as you learn quickly on the job and there's nothing that a college can teach you that covers what doing that work, with compassion, possibly could.
Thanks for that description. I think everyone should take a turn at doing so.
PS. It seems I got logged our at some point and may have left some reviews as anonymous, sorry. I've fixed it. I did wonder why the messages from this site kept popping up (that I didn't read) and no boxes to tick underneath, such as favourite story or author... oh well. Sh*t happens... a lot. All ticked now.

Mr. Weasley would never have allowed the three teenagers to go alone to rescue Ron. He would have played along with them until he found out what they knew, and then he would have gone himself, taking members of the Order with him. He would even have followed them with Dumbledore, but he would never have put the others in danger, not even for Ron.

There are no yahoo groups anymore. is there any other place to read the alternate ending of the chapter and extras? Thanks.

Where is the Harry and Ginny part - in the comments of others? That's not a relationship. You complain about other fanfics about them, and yours has all the appearance of going to put them together without the slightest sense in plot or coherence, in one or two chapters before the end, and that's it. A great relationship... (Sarcasm) So well you narrate despair and pain, and interpersonal relationships however, you do it horribly. I hope it gets better.

It is impossible for Vernon to enter another house, but even if he managed to do so, without making noise (drunk as he was and without being a thief, very complicated), and thus dominate several wizards. Simply because of fear, his accidental magic would be triggered, stopping him. But what is really impossible, is that a locked door would stop Sirius. He could appear in the kitchen; knowing he could kill Harry, he would have blown up the door and the furniture, knowing he would have time to fix it later, but he would never have allowed Harry to spend so much time in the hands of Vernon Dursley's murderer. You turned three powerful and skilled adult wizards into almost useless, needing 3 to move some furniture and open a door, while torturing Harry to death. And a knife stops Ron? Did he forget the accio that would rip it out of Vernon's hand before he could use it? I find too many mistakes, even if the main plot is good.

Harry and Ginny already became sweethearts in the previous fic that this one follows, so to go back to making the situation dizzying and without them interacting, which doesn't justify the increase in love, is a mistake.

It was good, and then it wasn't so good. Everybody were asshiles, except Malfoy, Ron and Snape, which is surpsisig. What's the deal with Arthur, sorry but I hate that guy now. Unfortunately, I think that you showed Sirius perfectlyAlso Hermione was behaving like a bitch when they got Ron.
All in all, it was really. Good. The end kinda ruined it for me, almost stopped reading. If you want to read it again remember about that (Celina)

I'd rather get myself acquainted with a manticore, thank you," Ron said dismissively. Translated:
I'd rather be with Scorpius Malfoy than his dad, thank you,

If a werewolf and a vampire were in a fight, who would win?" simplified:
If Snape and Moony were in a fight, who would win?
