This story was brilliant thank you for posting it.

The multiple pairings all at once felt a bit forced, especially with all of the age differences.
There was one, big plot hole, though... at the beginning, (chap 5) you say that there is a “tradition” with bearers:
"Well Harry, there is a strict procedure to follow when a Bearer is found – the Wizarding World must be told…"
"There will be a contest…only the winner, the most powerful and cunning Wizard will be allowed to[…] marry you."
This implies that the bearer has no choice, which would be rape.
Then, in chapter 16, Fudge says:
“it has become apparent to me by your inability to name the father of your child that you have either been abandoned by this scoundrel or were impregnated against your will.”,
using this to try to get control of Harry. Okay, Fudge is an idiot, and may not be well informed. But all of the adults seemed to know the tradition mentioned in chapter 5 to offer up the Bearer, willing or not, to the contest winner.
Finally, Voldemort, in his musing, lets the reader know this:
“He couldn't just take the boy – a queer fact about Bearers was that they could not be impregnated by rape“ (Chapter 18.)
In chapters 5 and 16, bearers CAN be impregnated against their will, and in chapter 18 they no longer can. Since this is part of the intrinsic setup of the story, that is quite a big inconsistency.
Also, the fact that the tradition is still remembered and followed, even though the last one (according to the Prophet) is said to have been the parents of the founders or Melin: (chapter 8) “there hasn't been another recorded case of a Bearer since the Founder's time.”) is a bit unbelievable, as is the idea that every boy child is supposed to be tested at birth for something that hasn’t happened in over a thousand years. (chapter 17: “how Bearers were identified at birth, the test being mandatory for all males but especially for descendants of Bearers past, as he was.”)
Nevertheless, the story was enjoyable with an interesting crossover.
Personally, I would like to see the story further developed, with character interactions that make us believe that the relationships that develop could do so in a realistic manner, evolving from canon characters, but I think that would be a different story with a different tone. I suspect the story is just fine for those looking for fast paced fluff and lemon, with a bit of adventure but not weighed down by complex character development.

This was so beautiful! I hope you put this entirely stunning work on A03 one day.
It deserves way more attention.

Oh I wouldn't count on Voldemort to let them in peace at the Ministry for their press conference! Hah!

When is a schoolmaster allowed to release personal medical information on a student? Especially such delicate info? Sue the SOB for all he's worth.

Love this story, have it in my favorites, but have a question. This bidding war sounds like buying a slave. Considering England abolished slavery in 1833, how does the wizarding world expect to get away with this? If Harry could escape, & with William's help it would be quite likely, he could appeal to the crown. What would happen to WW then? Just a little question. Perhaps another story?
