Coach Granger was much better than the sequel.
Harry Potter teaching at Hogwarts - why should he, after all the crap he saw from McGonnagal? He could always confiscate the assets of the Death Eaters.
And being manipulated into an arranged marriage, with Astoria basically thrown out of the window? Where the hell all the training went if Harry stopped using his 'sticking to the Man' skills?

I'm so glad someone wrote Harry as a highly trained Dark Lord killer who isn't totally messed up in the head.
Well, honestly, he IS messed up, but he's functional. And he wouldn't seem messed up to outsiders. Seeing how he acts upon his return to England would be... Amusing.

This is an excellent bit of writing that deserves more attention that it's received. I particularly enjoyed the Hermione/Harry banter and their relationship. Your Hermione is one of my favorite portrayals of her in fanfiction.

Seriously cool story dude.
And no "good" ending either.
I like it very much :)

i would love to read about avenger Harry if you ever write it as i love the series.

Neatly done. You depicted a harrassed Harry who had little or no appealing choices and a post-Voldemort world which was virtually identical to the one extant before his rise. (Which came as no surprise to me, in-place political entities don't go away without a fight.)
It would be interesting to read about 'Avenger Harry' should you decide to pursue it. One thing - if Harry can get to the March's assets, why didn't he do the same to the Death Eaters he liquidated? (Although this would have eliminated the 'almost broke Harry' aspect of your story.)
Thanks for writing and sharing this, best wishes for the upcoming holiday season and the new year.

"Mum, Dad, you might best think of purebr– purebloods as Amish when it comes to modern life. They've seen autos but have never ridden in one. They have no clue about television or gas ranges."
But Draco knew about helicopters in first year. The knowledge purebreds have is like in TV shows with aliens-it makes not sense. They know what is needed for the author to make a joke and they are ignorant of things in order for the author to make a joke. It NEVER makes any sense.
This is a sad story. Harry is still screwed. Hermy is still screwed. I haven't read Coach Granger, and I probably won't. Hermi the hermit (is she a lesbian? If NOT, why isn't she with Harry?). Harry the Avenger, trying to kill himself. Sad. Really sad.
If Harry can't have a happy marriage, at least he should be shagging Luna and Hermy on a regular basis.

No, that wasn't a pleasant analogy re: Rors's idea generationing abilities. Still, it was funny.
New and different twist on the chattel idea.
Yes, that was Angsty (!), but a valid direction to go. Most everyone acted in a reasonable fashion for the circumstance.
Thanks for sharing the story.

Not bad, but it all seemed like an interesting preamble. Then just as it looks like it might get good with the promise of "Avenger Harry"... *Pbbfftt* story complete! ? What the hey! ?
Thanks for posting, but you should probably have an AN, up front, that says the story is an evil tease. ;-)

great job! I love how it doesn't have a happy ending!

This was ok, not a fan of angst at all and I did feel very sorry for Harry and Astoria. Harry should have said no and Hermione should have said nothing as Harry has enough problems and has a hard life and worse fate he deserves to be happy and be loved and he owes magical society and the pure bloods nothing considering how he has been treated and the problems they have caused.
The Chattle idea is a good one as its not often done and in such situation someone always looses or suffers, but I think Harry should not suffer for someone or a society not worth the sacrfice.

Never really understood the whole point with getting married to the unfortunate woman, and why he went and gave up Astoria for her. Meh.

I'm not one for angst much anymore, if I ever was really, it's just very tiring. Still this was well written and with the exception of Hermione, who had presumably grown up a bit off camera, everyone's actions flowed in a straight line from where you left them in the previous story. The bits of plot from the previous story(mentions of Daphne, Hermione's errant lesbianism etc) were nice. Harry's growth arc here was well done, as he finally finds enough of a sense of self worth to put his needs before the girl's.
