After my disappointment with "The Deathly Hollows" I searched for Fan-fics. Wonderful story, better than the original HP7 in my opinion! Meanwhile I love Draco - he's not really as evil as he seems, I guess . My daughter. too, will love it....
Hmm. I have a lot of trouble imagining any circumstances in which Harry would let Malfoy into his head. He wasn't happy about Snape, and he was a Hogwarts proffesor and Order member. Draco's probably even lower on his popularity list, he's got no real reason to trust him (after all "I made Harry Potter go insane" would probably be a ticket back into Voldy's good graces), and Harry can't be happy about anyone working on this one.
hm...it's an interseting twist to have draco have to teach harry occlumens but at the same time, I cannot believe that draco is better at it then any other member of the order.
very interesting story thus far

Heh, thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying the story. As far as it goes with Draco and Occlumency - I'm afraid you'll have to take that one up with JKR . In OotP, we were told Snape was the only Order member who could teach Harry, and in HBP we were told that Malfoy could keep Snape out of his mind after Bellatrix taught him Occlumency.
I was supposed to be preparing for my big first day at work by getting an early night and instead sacrificed hours of sleep to get this far! This story is awesome, stumbled across it completely unintentionally and am loving it! The story is developing believably, i like what you've done and your theories on horcruxs and the last book etc.
The highest praise i could possibly give you is that if i picked this off the shelves in waterstones with JKRs name on the front i wouldn't be suprised!
I'm going to go back and continue reading and possibly miss work tomorrow - lol!
Well that all went better than I thought it would. I'm worried about Malfoy getting into Harry's head. He will learn things if Harry doesn't pick up quickly enough. All in all, I still think Harry got the short end of the stick with the Order and they should be happy they got him to agree to everything but one of their requests.
Ooo Draco Malfoy teaching Occlumens.. wouldn't you need to know some legillimency as well to teach someone though? I might be crazy, but I wondered. As I've said 11 times before this is another great chapter. Not much action of course, but I like how things are going so far.
HOORAY! Another awesome chapter, seeing your updates definitely make my day. And I wish I had a different comment other than "good job" but I never find anything I DON'T like about your storied!! Keep 'em coming!
Wow. I'm really, really worried about Bill. This just seems so unlike him. I loved Molly's reaction of trying to send Ginny to her room as if she were a naughty little girl who had run away or something like that. It seemed perfectly in character for her, and I loved the way Ginny had to fight against herself to continue acting like an adult.
The Order meeting was perfect. I loved Harry's response to Bill's accusation of impropriety, and I think Moody is going to be a powerful asset, because even though the adults are starting to realize that this is just going to be the way it is, I have an idea that doesn't mean it's the end of their protests or problems with it. The mirrors are a good idea.
And as for Malfoy, I'll repeat what I said once before...ARE YOU INSANE?????
