I figure Ollivander will contact DD immediately, so he'll be waiting outside Gringotts for them.
Oh, man, Remus is seriously P.O.'d, which I see as a good thing. It helps him understand the depths of Harry's anger and feelings of betrayal and shows how he himself has been manipulated. I wonder how many of his other memories DD has obliviated - memories that might have proven Sirius's innocence much sooner, for example. This memory tampering really shows a bad side of DD.

Yes, Cold Turkey ... You are evil for siccing Skeeter on them. She truly embodies all that is horrible about the press. What is worse, writing about Harry - unless he gives her an exclusive and restricts what she can say - would only endanger him and Hermione. Of course, now that he has a majority ownership of the Prophet, he can fire her arse if she misbehaves. I'd walk to that office posthaste and set down that little rule for her. I'd also make her get rid of that stupid Quick Quote Quill she uses. Ban it!

Ron was certainly more perspicacious on this occasion than usual. It sounds as though he has some information about just what's been going on.
LOL As soon as you mentioned DD eating on Ravenclaw's china and using Hufflepuff's cutlery, I knew what was going to happen. I'd have loved to see Albus's face when his dinner service vanished mid dinner ... almost as much as I'd have loved to see him fall on his bum!
Darn! Where's Colin Creevey when we need him?
Caliban gives me the creeps. He sounds a lot like that relentless tracker who made life a living hell for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Why doesn't he send Dobby? Dobby would make sure no one else intercepted that letter or placed tracking charms on Hedwig. That reminds me ... Has Harry checked her for tracking charms?
I don't think H&H are rushed. Consider it: for five years, ten moths a year, about 12-16 house per day, they have been in each other's company almost constantly. They're shared laughter, tears, arguments, plots, classes, various life-threatening situations. They know each other's positives and negatives better than they know their own. Sometimes, best friends DO fall in love. It may seem sudden, but it's anything but. Yes, they're young. But they have been through more than most people face in a lifetime.

Potter Manor sounds lovely.
I'm curious why Hermione seems so bullheaded about house-elves. For one who is so thorough in her research, why is she unable to wrap her head around the bond idea? It always reminds me of the "bond servant" concept discussed in the New Testament.

I suppose Dumbledore is now going to call Harry a dark wizard, although I'm not sure how that would hold up since he passed the ritual test of heritage by the Founders. BTW, I'm guessing Dumbledore may have attempted to claim that heritage and failed. Just a hunch, of course, but it would certainly make him jealous of Harry and might account for all of the bindings, blocks, and curses placed on him. I wonder why Harry didn't ask more about these ... Or did I miss something?

You were right, it was nasty magic, but I'd say it was warranted. And two of them, at least, will not be using their own nasty magic on anyone else ever again.
At least Hermione already believes Harry about all of the inheritances, which should help a lot. I wonder ... will the Castle recognize him as the rightful owner or keeper or whatever the term is? Will Dumbledore be given the boot? If I were Harry, before I left the Founders, I'd have wanted to have a long and wide-ranging conversation about the current headmaster.

That was pretty amazing! Harry must have suffered some severe growing pains for a bit. Imagine adding that much height, weight, and muscle in literally seconds. All of the added knowledge, though ... Wow! Hmm. I wonder what Hermione will say?

Voldemort's curse I know. The others, however - dampening his powers, blocking his memories, making others afraid of him - those sound like curses that Dumbledore might have placed on him for his own "Greater Good" reasons that only he understands. That last one - might it have made the Dursleys hate him? Was it already beginning to lift?
I can't wait to see Dumbledore's reaction. I'll bet he explodes.
| missgsmith51 chapter 2 . 2/2
Now, before I'd have accepted any any of those houses, I would want to make sure there were no betrothal contracts hanging over them ... no blood feuds or other kinds of debts or curses associated with them.
The Founders thing sounds interesting, but I'll bet Dumbledore has a conniption when he finds out.
| missgsmith51 chapter 1 . 2/2
I find it rather curious that Dumbledore's letter arrives literally seconds after the missive from Gringotts. Or am I being too suspicious?
Oh, too bad Harry didn't ask Hermione to meet him at Gringotts. She has an incisive, analytical mind and tends to ask good questions. She should be there.

Holy Cow. That was an interesting ride. I love that you have given Harry the means to be free without making him into an abnormally powerful super wizard. Those are interesting but seem to be a bit contrived. I do like where this one is going and am off to read the start of the 2nd portion.
