Oh, yay! Another new chapter! Heh, Harry's crushing on Ginny, which makes me think that she's his Livia. That would make Draco not Antony, but Livia's first husband (whose name escapes me at the moment)?
Of course, as the political situation develops, I find myself looking at the political characters - Dumbledore, Frank, Madam Bones, etc. - and trying to find a Brutus or a Cassius among them. Just who will it be that plunges the knife into Sirius' back and opens the door for Harry to step in? It would have to be someone Sirius trusted, much as Caesar trusted Brutus (to an extent). Perhaps Bill? Or Remus, maybe?
Oh this is so much fun, trying to connect the characters to the historical figures! The story's entertaining by itself, and guessing and speculating just adds to it.
It does make me sad about Nym, though, and how she's pulling away from Harry like that. Makes me wish we could see those two hash it out between them.
Great chapter! Keep up the good work! :)

i have to say, this is by far one of the most interesting story i've seen yet!
sirius as a tyrant! but i say a good tyrant.
i say in a way, it's like 3 battle going on.
the ministry, dumbledore, and sirius.
all so interesting and i like the idea of draco and harry fighting for ginny and how draco and ron are friends...very nice :D
i love to see more!

The story is quite different from the usual fare.
I was thinking that Harry would move out of Grimmauld Place & into Potter Manor as he is at odds with everyone there.
As those who have completed their owls are joining the legions you could say that the children now attain majority after completing their owls. So Harry doesn't have to stay at Grimmauld anymore.
Thanks & keep up the good work.

Wow, very interesting concept. Not entirely sure where you're going with this, although I suppose that Sirius is Julius Caesar and Harry is Octavius? I'm not entirely up on my Roman history, most of what I know is because I read Jim Butcher's Codex Alera and got curious about Rome.
Good stuff. Can't wait for more. )

I have always been fascinated by politics, and i absolutely LOVE your story. The politics in the Wizenmagot and the Ministry is something that I always felt didn't deserve enough attention in the original books and in most fanfiction. The way you characterized black, longbottom, and moody is absolutely spot on.
your diction flows, and its a great story. keep up the good work

I've read every single one of your stories, and while this isn't yet my favorite, it is definitely somewhere in the top. Your ideas transform into absolutely incredible ideas, and I love reading them. This is a very unique take on the story and it works very well. I don't really know much about Caesar and Roman history, but I think I'll enjoy this anyway.
Harry seems a bit too introverted for my tastes, and I do hope you'll give him some best friends soon, as well as bring in Astoria, who's definitely one of my favorite characters, particularly the way you write her in With Roses Be Dight. Ron and Draco being friends is a very cool twist, as well as amazingly ironic. I love it D I also enjoy your portrayal of Narcissa; while I tend to prefer a nicer, less snooty version of her, your version works very well in this story. I especially like the touch of Harry being adopted by Andromeda, but I'm sad you killed off Ted, as I think he'd be a wonderful father figure.
Also, I love that the chapters are so long, because it gives me so much to read ) Always a treat. I hope you continue this story, and I also hope you'll restart updates on your other stories (particularly Sigil and Roses, as they are my favorites). Your writing is simply fantastic, and I'm glad to have read it.
Amazing work, and keep writing!

Interesting. Very interesting.
I love this premise. Honestly, I think I might, at some point, write a fanfic with a similar premise, albeit with a different direction to the plot. It's inspiring, I tell you.
Although, this has me wondering: who would you give Marcus Agrippa's role to, as Augustus' confidante and right-hand man? I mean, it's somewhat clear that Harry's in the position Octavianus was, and that Draco's coming about to be something of a Brutus, or Marcus Antoninus, at least. The former characterization, however, would have a little squeck factor, however, given that Servilia and Caesar were supposed to be getting it on (here Narcissa and Sirius).
Still, amazing writing. Keep up the high quality work.

This is a very clever spin on HP/Roman history. I haven't seen anything like it. It works surprisingly well. You may have better luck posting it somewhere besides (if it's not Draco Harry slash with mpreg it's not really in this site's demographic). However I really look forward to reading more.
Harry does make a good Octavian so far but magic throws a more complicating factor. I assume he'll be Dumbledore-like in being capable of feats of magic that other wizards can only dream of but will never be a combat wizard like Sirius of Draco. Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing Harry at Hogwarts since his unique spin on things is probably the most interesting part of the story.
