I wonder bow long it's going to take before Draco catches on that Harry knows who he is. I've always loved Neville but be is awesome in this story, the laughter over question number four was priceless.

I really like Lavender especially how she gets moine's goat. I'm actually surprised Draco has to realized that Harry would be able to tell his scent and recognize his penmanship. Really like this story, it's different and very funny. I also like the fact that it is detailed and slow going. This story wouldn't have the same attraction for me if it was hurry hurry to the mating, this is funny, intriguing makes you want to keep reading to see what happens next.

Was an excellent story to read, i was worried that the epilogue was going to feel choppy and rushed because of how much you were putting in it but i was very glad on how well you did it

It was just a good read.

I don't understand Charlie... I thought he was not interested by courting Harry, so why does he try so much to succeed?

Now I see what you planned for Hermione. What you did by clearly underscoring her obsessive need for knowledge (overruling her sensitivity for her friend's disposition) in the begining, makes so much more sense now ! And I really enjoyed the evolution of her character. This Hermione might very well be the best I've read up to now.

You got me just as worried as Hermione with all those discussions about deadlines, dates and percentages about désepoir !
For which I thank you !

Draco is definitely full of surprises ! His awareness and analysis of intercultural relationships actually gives more depth to the very world where this story unfolds !

So, you are not letting Moody die, it seems. I'm very happy about that ! I've always liked him.
On the other hand, the appearance of the crown was a litte "surprising"... I still resent J.K.R. for springing the deathly hallows on us while we were still figuring out the Horcruxes. I felt, and steel feel, that her story didn't really need them, that she could have further developed other elements already present in the published series to get to the finale in a much more elegant and satisfaying way. So I'm a bit weary of the appearance of new magical objects. But I like this crown so far, and will wait to see what you planned to do with it !

What a nice evolution for all the characters mentioned in this chapter ! Clearly everybody in the carriage sided with Harry on this matter. Since you protray Dumbledore as overtly manipulating Harry (while still good at heart), I can't help but wonder about you take at Voldemort...

I love this new and improved Hermione. On the other hand when I read some chapters ago that Ron "Barked" some insult about the baby bracelet, I just felt an uge to punch him in the mouth... and I'm still in that frame of mind about that character...

My two favourite line from this chapter are both from Neville. First his very touching observation about Harry's perspective on his life (I actually found Harry's own consideration that some Death Eaters might be stuck in marriages forced on them remarkable), then his very funny comments. My favourite is : "Harry, you missed"
Unrelated, in a previous A/N you said to consider same-sex marriage as posing no problem at all among wizards to explain how Dumbledore could light-heartedly propose that all male members of the Order would write to Harry.
Now, I love so much HP slash that I might be forgetting what the official version of Dumbledore teenage years was, but I'm pretty sure J.K.R. herself stated he was gay and in love with Grindelwald. So his suggestion might not be so out-of-character afterall. As for "unconventional", nothing strikes me as conventional about him, the passwords to his office to begin with. On the contrary, he often seems to be thinking outside the box, or maybe just so wise that his suggestions are cryptical. So I actually feel he could have made quite naturally such proposition, especially because Harry was screening males only anyways, so what option would he have had ?

What a brillant interview and what an impressive imagination ! Still, everything makes perfect sense as it was the case for the genetics lesson, I love your consisency and "accuracy" if I can call it so.

The 4th question, a streak of genius, especially how you managed to describe so many reactions to it without revealing the answer. I'm also beginning to enjoy these Order meetings, they don't look so malevolent anymore, especially since the Dark Lord is trying just the same tactics.
Oh, and you taught me a new world ! "Awov". And I would have never guessed its meaning if I didn't speak French.
Since I am somewhat of a collector when I come across beautiful new words, I'll forever remember this story each time I'll read that word from now on. THANKS for that too !
