If we can't gut Dumbledore, can he be given to a troll as a sex slave? Another lovely chapter.

This is such a new and different take on the 'Harry Potter character is a veela and has to find a mat' and I love it! Please update soon!

I'm so happy to see another story being written by you. While it's true I wanted to see the sequel to the other story, this one is just as good.

Lovely first steps!

Already, I love this fic. You've also taken into account some simple biological/evolutionary cliches of other stories that aren't viable and changed them until they are (male pregnancy) or completely dismissed them (one-true mate). I love that there's a courtship that's actually believable, I love Harry's personality, the attack and Draco starting to actually think after the wakeup call. I'm looking forward to more of this.

I like the chapter. I guess we all know that genetics is a much more complicated issue than Harry lets on, but it's okay that he only skimmed the topic in order to enlighten his fellow wizards (though I have to admit that some of those theses made me wince and think back to the long chapters on genetics in my Biology book... but you are forgiven ).
Yet, I have always found the idea odd that wizardkind has been able to come up with things like Arithmancy, Animagus transformations, brewing potions, achieving invisibility, inventing new spells or peering into the future, and yet knows NOTHING of Physics or Genetics...
And, with regard to other reviews, Dumbledore's behaviour is actually quite logical. He's fighting a war that will determine the fate of wizardkind, at the same time he firmly believes in the prophecy that makes Harry the SOLE PERSON able to defeat Voldemort. Of course it would disturb and annoy him immensely if his only weapon was suddenly out of his grasp. He needs Harry, he must be in control of him until his task is finished - for not being in control of Harry would basically mean gambling on the world's fate.
Therefore, I fully understand your characterization of Dumbledore. It might not be in line with Rowling's saint-like Dumbledore, but hey, that's what fanfiction is for!
So please don't doubt your story or your ability - it's your story, your decisions. And if you want male Veela, write male Veela - we are no slaves to any mythology. It would be wise to remember that, had JKR submitted to the restraints of mythology and legend, the Harry Potter universe as we know and love it wouldn't exist today.

Great chapter - the explanation of half-Veelas etc. was brilliant, I've never actually read a Veela-fic that explains things so well, or in so much detail, which goes for theories on how Lily knew as well. I love it when people explain why things happen, as opposed to declaring 'this is how it shall be. One question; is it only in his Veela bird form that Harry has 'girl bits' or does he have them in his humanoid form? And huzzah for Neville, Sirius and Lavender xD

Interesting biological explanation.
This was an interesting and rather cute chapter. Dumbledore came across as very scary, in terms of his need to control. I'm looking forward to seeing how Draco plans to approach Harry.

Love Drake, but I must say he sounds DEE-LOO-ZHUN-ULL!
Can't wait to see how the courtships progress. A Herms smackdown will not go amiss either. Lav seems a viable candidate for female friend but where's Ginny in all this?
