good start. i like that harry, as well the relationship, was all awkward at first. they are only sixteen. but i hope he gets better in the future. harry/daphne is a good match, there aren't a lot of stories around with this pairing so almost anything would be a fresh take on things. although i have read daph as an ice queen before, i haven't read one where she teaches harry. i'm looking forward to reading what else she can teach him about being a slytherin and a potter. maybe harry can also teach her something in return. anyway, good job. write more!

whsat? already half done?

Well, it wasn't bad, there are some things I didn't like, but it was enjoyable.
However there is still something I'm asking myself: Why didn't Harry look for the Dark Mark when he saved Daphne? and what happened to the possible marriage contract that her parents were looking into?

I do hope that Daphne asks him why he's wasted a whole year sitting on a broom instead of training to fight Voldemort.
Harry should use Legilimency on Crabbe or Goyle to find out what Malfoy's doing. They don't know what he's doing, but they know where and when.
I hope Harry doesn't use his lucky juice on getting that memory from Slughorn. That would've been more useful in battles.

Another great Chapter... I am glad that they are happy together and seem to be happy.
I hope that Daphne can help Harry without getting herself in trouble.

Seriously I love the dynamic between them perfect team smarts of Hermione with that cunning twist pure awesome honestly, perfect compliments to each other un.

Wonderful part here, really enjoying the continued Daphne/Harry interaction, and also like to see that Harry is getting a bit fed up with Dumbledore's stonewalling him, as well as putting him on the spot. Will be curious to see what this might bring by the end of the year, and to see how this might change things by the time the DH epilouge comes around. I also enjoyed the talk that Harry and Hermione had, and very good to see him using his maturity to get Hermione out of her funk, as well as setting things up so that the whole thing won't feel rushed for her and Ron, and maybe this means she may end up with someone else?

Actually, there are several Harry/DG pairings on FFN, but like you said because you can't search for them they are hard to find. Also, Jeconais has an excellent Harry/DG story on Fanficauthors.
As for this chapter, I think you did really good moving the story along at a good pace. Obviously as the second chapter out of four this was going to be less action packed and used primarily for establishing additional plot information. Still, it was very well written with good characterization.
One question I do have though is what Daphne is doing getting involved with Harry when her parents are proposing a marriage contract to someone else on the continent? If she does care for Harry, it is sort of cruel to date him and get his hopes up only to potentially crush him. I seriously hope you don't have Daphne break up with Harry and suddenly re-establish her ice-queen persona with him if she gets engaged. That has been done too many times to count and that much angst in a 4 chapter story would lessen a very good piece of fanfiction.
Hope to see the next chapter soon.

I'm REALLY looking forward to when Hermione finds out about Daphne :)
Also, you might be interested in Perfect Situation by Jeconais over on fanficauthors. It's a Harry/Daphne fic with a 50k sequel of sorts.
Another fic you might want to read is White Knight, Grey Queen, also by Jeconais. I'm seeing a lot of similarity between the way you wrote Daphne and the way he wrote Pansy in that fic (it's a Harry/Pansy fic). The fics themselves are hugely different, but you both took the best parts of what a Slytherin should be when you designed Harry's significant other.
Thanks for sharing this story :) It's always very nice to see more Harry/Slytherin!girl fics that aren't all angsty or with a dark Harry.

"reign in" should be "rein in", but that's the only fly in this rather nice ointment.
I too have thought that Daphne has been sorely neglected, but I'm shocked that doesn't even allow her as a story-tag. Maybe this story can help with that.
So we're half-way through now? This would indicate that you're not necessarily intending the relationship to be long-term, but I would be happy to be shown to be mistaken on that.
As it is, this is a nice thing for your Harry, finding out that life isn't all about running about shouting and making things go "bang".

Wicked story! Your right, I do like the interesting pairing, it makes a nice chnage from The HarryGinny I ususally read! Can't wait to see what happens next!

She is also briefly mentioned in Book 1 during the Sorting. Of course only her surname was given. Nice work, I really enjoyed reading this and can't wait for the next update.
