This is so ... different. And so very, very good.
It reminds me of something, but I can't for the life of me remember what. I suppose that this déjà-vu thing just means that I get the feeling of reading a really good book. Confusing?
Love it. Completely.
The only thing I wondered about was: what happens when there aren't enough Ravenclaws to continue a line? Or too many?

Well, I suppose that's what I was aiming for, so thanks.
As for the number of Ravenclaws, I dealt with that in an arbitrary and non-cannonical way by stating eight first years, four girls and four boys, were always sorted into the House , "never more and never fewer." Well, why not?
If you think you've seen this before, finally, maybe you have. As I note in the intro, a somewhat diffferent (and much longer) version of this story exists. It includes bits altogether unsuitable for the refined readership of PS.net, but shouldn't be that hard to find, as to my knowledge I am the only Jacynthe currently writing HP fanfiction...
