1st paragraph is enough to put me off : 'It is quiet plane' means an almost silent aircraft or woodworking tool. On the other hand 'It is quite plain' means that it is readily apparent.
There are 2 steps to take: 1. Switch off your spell checker. 2. Get a Beta who can spell and knows British English.

I'd love to see you continue this as you have quite a few good ideas going. I really like the idea that Merlin isn't a real wizard and just a muggle myth, it''s quite ironic that the wizarding world, so superior when it comes to how they see muggle's are all so in awe of one of their creations. When Harry put Hermione straight in the corridor after the lesson I thought he was going to ask her if she also thought Gandalf were real just because he has his name in print. Who knows, maybe he is.
Speaking of Hermione, when is Harry going to make her take the pimple hex off Marietta? You mentioned it on the train anhd nothing happened afterwards. I actually got a scene in my head of Harry calling together the DA and making Hermione remove the hex in front of everyone and then explaining how they'd all been unfair with regard to her situationn. They should've used some kind of secrecy oath instead, either that or a fidelius charm, if you can hide a house or people, why not information too? And if Hermione is so advanced she can perform a protean charm, or brew polyjuice with only one full years potion instruction then she's certainly capable of a fidelius or something like it.
If Harry has to have four wives, I'd quite like to see Daphne Greengrass as one of them. I don't know why but I love stories where he ends up with her, quite a few authors have made such a minor canon character into one of my favourites, maybe I just like the name? I'd quite like to see Luna in there too, After a lot more getting to k know her of course, she's really straight forward in her own dotty kind of way and I think Harry needs people like that.
Anyway, thanks for keeping me entertained for the last few hours and I hope to see this finished at some point.

Nicely done with the Merlin Angle, I like it. Also are you thinking of adding Daphne to the Pairing? I notice most authors use the 'Ice Queen' persona for her, it's a pity that J.K Didn't expand her characters more, there are so many with which we just have names.

Really like this story, sad you haven't continued it. Hope that you start eriting it again!

Very sorry this story stopped, as it is well written and amuses me greatly. With what I've seen, Greengrass would be a fair bet on the wife situation, but I would also put a few galleons on Susan Bones as well.
Regardless, I do hope you come back to this in the future... if only to see Dumbledore's reaction to Harry being completely out of his control. )

I hope you decide to work on this fic again soon it is very interesting and very well thought out I like how you have taken the "Take his life in his own hands with help from Narcissa" and went an interesting way with it. The characters are well done and the redemption of Bella is very interesting. I like the idea of multiple wives as long as they are seperate and not getting into three ways or the wives having relationships other than friends. I would like to see how the next three come into his life and will be looking forward to reading them.

Narcissa sound like Dumbledore with his second chances when she talks about him not having a right to judge others... Personally, think Harry has every right to judge those people and should not be told otherwise. While Narcissa maybe smart and politically knowledgeable, it doesn't necessary mean she is right so Harry shouldn't hang on to her every word.
Is Harry only going to learn "light" spells or is he going to be a grey wizard? I prefer it when he is grey and not afraid to kill Death Eaters using darker spells. If only the Order of Phoenix, the aurors and any other people involved in the war would actually fight with the intent to kill and actively hunt down DEs, the war would never escalate to the stage where it was and Voldemort could lose even before Harry was born...
It is all due to inability to act of the general masses as well as Dumbledore's stupid beliefs that so many people died in the first and second wars.

Unless this part is AU, then Harry actually does have Black blood. His grandmum, Dorea, I believe. Meh.
