Not bad, but not great either. Overall, decently written. Thanks for your story!

Aw, that was a nice story. Everybody got a good mate and they're all in love. They proved Dumbledore wrong and Hermione right - and others helped!
I just wish I could have heard Lily's greeting to both Riddle and Dumbledore after they crossed over, don't you? Hehe I bet they both needed to wash out their ears with Janitor-in-a-Drum! And since it's eternity, I'm guessing this will be a long lecture. Couldn't happen to two more deserving idiots!

Well, that worked ... so far. But he still has to get outta that place.
Considering what the DEs do so casually, it makes one stop and think about what kind of people would seek out and follow someone like Voldemort in the first place, even before he became the abomination he currently was. How does that kind of evil take hold? Even Snape - who knew what it was to hate down to his core - couldn't stomach it. Neither could Regulus. When they learned what they had to do and what Voldy ultimately planned, they became dedicated to bringing him down. Yet Draco sought him. He already knew what was involved, yet he sought out the evil. I think it says a lot about the depth of evil already inside him.

Well, Snape and McGonagall are now on the case ... as are Daphne and Hermione. I don't understand why they don't take Harry to the Goblins? Bill's a curse breaker for them. Perhaps he could help. Or they could ask the Unspeakables to attempt an exorcism.
Another option: Why not try pouring Basilisk venom into the scar to see if it will destroy the soul piece? Then pour Phoenix tears on the wound to heal it?
| missgsmith51 chapter 16 . 2/22
Okay. Daphne! She helped him get the memory from Slughorn. Maybe she can help him figure out how to get rid of the soul piece, too. Maybe Grandma Annabelle will know!

The question is ... Did Draco fix the cabinet? If he did, I guess everything will play out as usual, and DD will die. If not, who knows?
| missgsmith51 chapter 13 . 2/22
I can't believe how naïve Dumbledore is. The nature of that stupid mark ... It taps into the magic and core of those who take it, much like a soul bond and an unbreakable vow. How can such a thing be forced? I should think the magic would have to consent.
More importantly, though, not every DE is a potential Snape. He took the Mark willingly, even though he didn't believe in the whole Pureblood dogma. When he realized what was required of him, he couldn't do it. Draco totally buys into it. He needs to be slapped into a high security cell in the ministry, not allowed to roam free in a school full of children.

It seems Daphne's idea worked! Maybe she will get another big kiss for it! I at least hope DD will be honest with Harry. I agree with him ... I think DD wasted a lot of time dancing around when he could have cut to the chase a lot earlier with Harry. If he suspected Horcruxes, he should have been working on them for years. He also should have been training Harry to fight the whole time he was at Hogwarts instead of wasting year after year with inept DADA teachers and risking Harry's life on ridiculous "quests." No wonder array is PO'd.

Okay, I'm confused. I thought Daphne's dad was named Cyrus not Jonathan (chapter 5, talking to Remus).
Well, it seems there is definitely a connection between Harry and Daphne. That's good ... I think. It's hard to tell if it's a good thing when Harry is concerned, given the danger around him. But I think things have changed. Maybe he needs to get the betrothal rings that I'm assuming are in the Potter vault. They generally have a lot of built-in protections, and I suspect both kids will need them.
I hope Molly isn't going to be a total shrew about the betrothal, as she is NOT Harry's mother, and Daphne IS Harry's betrothed. I don't care what Molly's relationship is to Harry; I don't think he would put up with her treating Daphne the way she treats Fleur. At least, I hope not.
| missgsmith51 chapter 10 . 2/21
Hehe if Snape was mad that Daphne was at the party with Harry, I can't wait to see his reaction when he finds out Harry and Daphne are actually betrothed.
It looks as though Daphne might be beginning to care a little.
| missgsmith51 chapter 9 . 2/21
Well, that went better ... although I'm not sure I'd be all that impressed with the stench of the dead Basilisk. At least they seemed to make a bit of headway.
| missgsmith51 chapter 8 . 2/21
I'm afraid with Draco hogging up the RoR, it's not going to be do easy for them to meet there. They need to talk to McGonagall and explain their predicament. She would probably ask the castle to help out.
| missgsmith51 chapter 7 . 2/21
I don't think Harry's weak. I find myself quite able to empathize with his feelings. Only someone who has ever been thrust into a situation where there was only one way to go and all options were taken away can relate, I think. The betrothal contract is the least of it all, unfortunately.
All of his life, for as long as he can remember, others have made the decisions in Harry's life. He hasn't even been given the pretense of a choice. The one time he did make a choice - to rescue Sirius - it wasn't really a choice. It was a trick that ended in the death of his godfather.
Personally, I think that Harry has a right to feel trapped and hopeless. He's never been allowed to grieve for either Cedric or Sirius. He needs a chance to heal ... and instead, along comes Daphne and drops this marriage contract bomb in his lap. I don't think his responses and feelings of being trapped, angry, and out of control are unwarranted.

Actually, it was smart of Harry to talk to Ginny. I have to say it helps she has moved on, because now he can try to actually SEE Daphne as his future mate. As long as the possibility of Ginny - or anyone else, for that matter - haunted him, there would be no way he could even consider Daphne. This way, it's not as if he is having to give up someone he loves who loves him. That would be much more difficult.
