I have just spent the day reading this and i must say it is one of the best Harry Potter FanFictions i have read, so bravo good sir and thank you for this well paced and beautifully done piece of literature.

I am glad I found this story. The extended ending was great, made the relationship with Daphne and Harry more real. Glad you did it. Looking forward to more in your collection.

This was a nice and well written story! If i had any complaints, that would be that Harry' s defeat of Voldemort was way too easy. He just happens to tag along with Snape, it just happens that there are no wards to keep Hary out of the bad guys base, and it just happens that he overpowers Riddle ( ok, he is sick, but still! ) and Bellatrix ( one of the supposedly most skilled duelists) just with the element of the surprise. It is doubtlessly something we have not seen happen in any other story, however things just happen a bit too conveniently.
Of course, this story is focused on the relationship of the two protagonists, so the point above should not matter much.

Neither the English nor Germans like their beer ice cold. 5 - 8C sure, but not at 0C.
It is an US thing, and they do it on the Canaries, too.
Using sports to get into a career is a very US thing, too. It is just not done in Europe. After a sports career, you can become a figurehead for one or the other thing. But it will not qualify to run anything.
To go into politics the options are:
- go into public service
- become a teacher
- become a professor at a University
and become a member of a political party, which can get you elected.

Credit cards are used a lot less in Europe than in the US. Substitute Eurocheque card instead. The fees/percentages to the business owners are a lot lower. Credit cards are only helpful in Europe for renting a car.

This was one the very first fanfics I ever read. Awesome.

Very nice...I like how Dumbledore was essentially marginalized, and several other ideas. Also a very clever way to dispose of the DEs, though some might complain about it being 'too easy' or something. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for this entertaining story!
Frankly, the pacing was a bit fast but the payoff was great. I really enjoyed how the characters interacted with one another, and how you did not take the path that many other writers have taken: you did not magnify Ron's bad qualities and lower him from his role as a supporting protagonist. He was Harry's friend for a long time, and it's good that he stays that way.

Seems to me like Harry was still getting manipulated, but accepted it...just like most married men learn to do.

I mostly like your story but i feel you are using to much muggle crap on it there ant any magic.

This was a great story. I loved having Voldie defeated by a potion, Bellatrix sent to the Inferi and Snape expire by potion.
Ron's Slytherin phobia was handled quite well and I liked how he had to grow up and admit that his prejudices weren't necessarily accurate.
