What a lovely idea!

Would have been funny if Shack and Tonks' French partner was actually Sirius in disguise

The end of Harry and Hermione adventures were original. If adults british wizards had actually a backbone and if Dumbledore was able to give informations to others than just Snape and Harry, everything will be better.
Of course, as usual Dumbledore had little consideration for the life of his students, as he was just sorry for Katie Bell near death by dark artifacts while he was playing with Draco, Greg and Vince "redemptions". It will be cool to see the reaction of Molly Weasley if Harry was unable to save the life of Ginny, his husband or Ron while all of them were under the responsability of Dumbledore. The sad fact is that many of people think that the fact that Draco was unable to kill Dumbledore on the Astronomy Tower saved his soul, which in fact was already tainted by so much attempts of murder and uses of Unforgivables. Draco Malfoy is just a coward that is unable to kill somebody while looking in his eyes, while he was very confident and happy too see Muggles or Muggleborns being tortured during the Quiddich World Cup and it was very easy for him to use dark magic or poison to kill Dumbledore and his others victims during his 6th year.
I liked very much your description of French Polynesia and the characters life on Black Island.
Good luck if you continue to entertain us with your stories.

I do love some of the wackier tropes, and enjoyed this very much as well

I do like to see adults acting grown up! This was a great story and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for a great (re)read!

So Bones can't figure out to run an all inclusive, marathon court day... soak the bastards in truth syrum, and get confessions out of them. Then, sentence them ALL at the same time. Give 'em a choice of life, or the veil. No parol. Nevet getting out.

Still not getting how you take notes one handed and hold a broom while flying. Clipboard charmed to the broom? Sharpie, writing on her own leg?
During the mapping part of the flying, she could sit behind him and draw on his back. Then transfer it to paper (while Sirius laughs at them)

Probably already asked this years ago, but it's not "fixed" (if that sort of thing even happens, so...).
Why would we NOT think the goblins are magically converting and updating, even with interest 'payments' happening, to keep the vaults balanced down to the 'least common denominator', or whatever you call it with money? There should never be more than 19 sickles, or 37 knuts (?), at least right after an update.
Maybe the extras trickle in and pile up a bit before the monthly, or more likely, weekly adjustments? Still, 13,640 extraneous sickles? What good are all those piles of coins to anybody?
Isn't the amount of space 722 galleons takes up, a whole lot more efficient?!
That's a HUGE waste of time, piling and counting knuts, especially considering the number of vaults there are.
Is Griphook 'compelled' by Dumbledore to not let Harry know about all of his Family wealth?

Regarding soul bonds, yeah, a Life Debt shouldn't do that. But, remember that the medieval societies did believe in Life Debts, defined as created when you save someone's life at great risk to your own when you have no reason to do so - so a guard saving the life of a noble doesn't incurr a Life Debt.
Life Debts can result in a marriage when the one owing the debt offers a sister or daughter to the one owning the debt. Or if the one saved is female and the savior male.
Also, the age of consent prior to 1860 in England was generally accepted as 8-9 years old and was raised to13, then 16, in the 1860s. It is not unreasonable for the Wizards to ignore Muggle Laws, as canon frequently has instances where any laws passed since they separated cultures are ignored, so they could still have an age of consent of 11, since that is when children start their magical education.

Before disregarding emancipation you should really check the law:
A 16 or 17 year old minor can be emancipated in England by;
a) Marriage. (Parental consent required)
b) Enlistment in the Armed Forces. (Parental consent required)
c) Court order. A court will order a minor emancipated only if he (or she) is able to prove that she is *entirely* economically self-sufficient (ie *NO* assistance from anyone, even in the form of "you can live here for free), is emotionally capable of living alone, and has a home environment which is "entirely unsuitable".
If the home is suitable, then the court will not order even the wealthiest and most mature 17 year old emancipated, and if the first two criteria are not met but the home is unsuitable the minor will be sent to the care of another adult.

This was awesome. I loved how you handled all of the problems of Harry with and without the prophecy, and those with the horcrux's.
| Bronze chapter 3 . 1/29/2016
And why should the French magicals want a secure prison where that the muggles can't see? And burying their prisoners BELOW the Bastille where it's permanently dark is shear genius! If you're going to apparate out you must know not only where you want to go but where you're starting from. That includes whether you're above or below ground level. Otherwise, it could get rather messy.

I am not sure if they had it in Europe but they should have gone to JC Penny's or known for short as *Pennys" which back then had very decent family clothes with a good selection and variety. Not too flashy and not too shabby.
Now it's all designer ware crap which we know longer shop there as they cater to the *Hippies* to be part of the *cool* crowd and as a result they are now part of the financial disaster group where they are looking at chapter 11.
Mervens California had the same problems by getting into designer ware ONLY and scared away a lot of decent families that didn't want the *punk* like stuff which frankly I don't blame them.
Clothes in those days was made for all sizes and now it's either for extremely thin people or super fat people.
Wal Mart has been getting clothes recently from India and Pakistan which is much better quality then China slave labor.
