Snape was never cordial to Darion, but he was considerably less rude, hateful, and unreasonable. Now that he knows Darion is Harry, he's back to being an arse. Who knows ... Perhaps Snape is just ticked because Harry's desire NOT to take up his BWL moniker negates Snape's favorite accusation that Harry is an attention-seeking git. Harry's attempts to fly below the radar are challenging Snape's pet beliefs, and Snape doesn't like being wrong.

That "sliding" thing he does seems to be more efficient for him than other firms of magical travel. I've often wondered why Harry is so bad with Floo and Portkey travel. His flying skills alone negate innate clumsiness as a cause. Is it connected to the spinning? If so, could head injuries caused by either his scar or his relatives smacking his head be the cause?

LOL at Alastor as a "good little retired Auror." HeHe

So ... Albus knows. Riddle knows. Hermione knows. I suppose Snape has finally figured it out (or soon will).
Btw, I keep forgetting to ask ... Why is Darion's last name (Elddir) Riddle spelled backward? Is that part of what has Mad-Eye so riled?

Now for the 64,000 Galleon question: Will she tell Ron? Possibly, the fact that she enjoys knowing things others don't will help her keep the secret. Then again, there may be no need, now that Voldy knows.

Because of what the Mark is and does - the way it tethers the DEs to Voldemort, like an oath of fealty, and ties their magic into his and allows him to draw on it, if needed - I believe magic would require it to be freely taken. A Mark that is forcibly given, like Draco's (if indeed it was forced without his consent), should not hold the same power over him as one freely taken. It should be little more than a tattoo.
I realize this is your story and you can set your own rules for the Mark; I'm just sharing my interpretation of what it is and how it works.

Draco with a sword ... Just what Harry needs. If Draco is marked, as he was by this point in the books, this won't end well.

I'm surprised Snape invited Karkaroff into his chambers. I don't remember them being so ... "chummy" the last time they were thrown together. Didn't Karkaroff attempt to rat out Snape to bargain for his freedom after the first Voldy war?

I wondered who would twig onto Harry's use of the Wormtail moniker. It's too bad Harry can't tell at least a few people who he is. Hermione is sure to figure it out before long, as she can't leave any mystery alone. Moody is being such an arse that he doesn't even deserve to know.

This is quite an interesting story. I don't much care for either Ron or Alastor. I feel Ron is the Gryffindor version of Draco - bigoted and close-minded against anyone who is different. Then again, I have long thought this. While I understand Moody's skepticism and wariness - especially after what happened to him last time he came to Hogwarts - I feel his extreme behavior could harm the efforts against Voldemort.

If Percy has political aspirations, it would behoove him to see that people at least know his name ... unless he is actually planning to change it to Weatherby. The fact that Fudge can't remember people's names only further contributes to making him look incompetent. It is also disrespectful.
I've noticed a little homophone confusion with the following words:
Heel the back part of the foot below the ankle
Heal cause to become healthy again

Fudge at Hogwarts? Just what they need. I hope the Toad isn't with him.
| missgsmith51 chapter 10 . 12/15/2014
Just what Hogwarts needs ... Igor Karkaroff. NOT! I'm not even sure I trust THIS Moody. Just because he isn't Little Barty doesn't mean he couldn't be someone else. There's something stranger than usual about him, IMO.
Dumbledore wins because he distracts his opponents.

I always thought DD would be a goat. I figured HE was probably the goat upon whom Aberforth was practicing those illegal charms!

Hermione didn't introduce herself. Won't she wonder how Darion knows her name, or have they already met?
Harry's familiar seems to be taking instruction from the Twins and the Marauders. If the snake is Draco's, where did he get it, and why has it chosen to remain with Harry/Darion?
