Just how much of a bing drinker is Harry?
Seriously, either he has the constitution of a five year old girl or he really drinks more than a fish.
I get having hangovers, but for a day?! He had one till, what, two in the afternoon before he took that potion when he went to Greece?
And now, he only had a bottle of white … half a bottle if you count the girl …
So I can only conclude that he either got completely totally smashed or he has crap tolerance to booze.

Quote:"It is unlikely there will be any evidence," Krum said. "People are each given Omnioculars to record each individual player, so they will be inspected. Ackerley should know that.":End Quote
Um, I'm confused. How will it be unlikely that there will be any evidence when the actions of each and every player has been recorded by Omnioculars? That sounds like a lot of evidence right there.
Also, wouldn't Harry be made to eat more? He will have to increase his protein intake at the least if he is to build muscle which is what is going to be asked of him anyway. So I don't see why he has to worry about being on a diet …
Restrictive Diets that require you to lower tour food intake are for people who want to lose weight but aren't leading physically demanding jobs. Athletes bulking up have to eat more! Their intake (especially protein, i.e., meat) is especially high as they burn a lot of energy compared to normal people. You should see them … one can eat enough for two men! And they eat so much because they burn a lot …
Anyway, nice chapter. Harry seems shorter here than in canon. After all, there, he was at James' height when he was fifteen. And that was before the massive growth spurt he had before sixth year …

A very nice and different take on the Harry Potter genre … especially with Voldemort already gone!
I think the law about personal healers does have some merit. Considering how much they are getting paid, it isn't an issue, and having someone who knows you inside and out can only be a good thing! You don't have to worry about doing most preliminary tests.
I do think many athletes have doctors that they only go to. I don't see why such a law should be repealed …
Anyway, that's enough of that. Great story so far!
By the way, I don't think that Ravenclaws need to answer questions to go out…
And Sirius is not an "ex-con" …
Because to be an ex-convict or "ex-con", he would need to be a convict to begin with …
To be a convict, he'd have to be convicted…
In a trial…
Which he never had …
So how can he be an ex-con when he isn't a con?

that was a great first chapter, the changes from canon were a bit abrupt but in fairness you did say AU i just didn't actually believe it because the term is so widely abused now a days.

great chapter loved that harry lost
| Zconroy85 chapter 13 . 3/11
Great chapter. Definitely glad it came so quickly.
A real great back and forth between Harry and Daphne, and i do like the fact that Harry lost this match, shows some vulnerability and makes it more relatable that hes not perfect (as much as one can relate to flying on brromsticks haha)
Just hope things dont speed up too much. I dont mind waiting longer for a chapter if it means you get it how you want it.

And buuurn Potter! I bet he needs to wind up and chat Daphne some more :D A nice romantic chapter would do him a great kindness!

It's safe to say this piece of Fanfiction is a cut above most. The general plot outline of Harry taking a Quidditch oriented route after Hogwarts and having ordinary yet challenging experiences makes this Fic a singular classic. From the very start, the this fanfic makes it clear that there can be more to HPfanfiction than overused plotlines and roll-your-eyes Draco/Hermione shippers. Harry is portrayed well, and this version of what could have been is, quite frankly, easier to believe than JK Rowling's version. He behaves normally for a man of his age, with his head on one of four things: sports, girls, his career, and having a good time with his friends. The Quidditch scenes are exciting to read, and it is very easy to believe in the characters as real people, which is essential to any great piece of fiction. The only problem I had with it is that while Harry's lack of friendship with the other 2/3rds of the "Golden Trio" is explained, it sadly doesn't hold much water. You don't simply drift apart from friends who have risked their lives for you. There would have to be a major betrayal involved, or, what could also be a good idea, have Ron and Hermione start dating which could serve as the mechanism for Harry to start distancing himself from them. Harry could do that out of a desire to let them have their "honeymoon" phase with each other, and then they simply never close the gap with him again. While still remaining friends, this would serve to explain why Harry would rather spend his time with his bachelor buddies, instead of being the awkward third wheel of the "Golden Trio". Other than that singular minor plotpoint, I thoroughly enjoyed this Fic, and I eagerly look forward to more.

That was freaking amazing I enjoyed every second of it from Daphne's House to another fantastic Quidditch Match. Everything was to pure perfection I'm so glad your still continuing to update especially getting this early treat was a bonus thanks for that.
| AlsoKnownAsMatt chapter 13 . 3/10
Great chapter. You really illustrate the pain of Harry's defeat and, before that, lay some nice foundation work for a connection to Daphne. Thanks for your hard work on this, I'll be looking forward to the next update.

I'm so glad you're still updating! This is one of my favorite stories and I can't wait till Harry and daphne finally get together. Please update faster :)

Nice chapter, little short but w/e. I'm looking forward to the 'you shagged my sister' scene, though you need to be careful not to over do it. Remember, he had no idea and they had only been out twice and a little more. Press reaction should be excellent though, looking forward to it.

I generally prefer either action driven or sappy romantic stories when it comes to Harry Potter (Most other fandoms as well, really) but I found myself with quite an interesting read with this one. Aside from the pairing, I figured it wouldn't have much going for it for my tastes. That said, I enjoyed it quite a bit, and even followed it. It's been long enough that I had to go back and reread it to catch up after I spotted this in my email, and I was glad to do so afterwards as it left me once again, fully in the zen of the story. It is, again, not my usual cup of tea, but I found myself hapily reading it to the current chapter, and giggling over the conclusion of this one. I can't wait for the next one!

Ahh, what can I say about this delightful story? I love a good post-hogwarts fic, & I love post-voldie ones even more! Add to that excellent descriptive Quidditch scenes, a Harry capable of friendships beyond Ron/Hermione, AN ALIVE SIRIUS & you have something that I've happily read three (3) times!
Please, keep up the good work!
