I loved this re-write. The mental damage that Harry has sustained logicly leads to his thinking during the isolation. I love seeing people wake up and not accept the status quo. As you said, whether it takes...?

I for one am glad to see you writing again - and totally understand the need for life balance.

Thanks for writing and sharing.

A very interesting AU, and an enjoyable read. Thank you for writing!

Look forward to reading more. This is interesting.

Interestingly enough, this chapter makes Harry come across as childish. Then again, he IS a child at fourteen.

I think the reason that this one comes across as unpopular with so many people is that you have a history of doing a larger than life Harry - he is a fairy-tale prince. In this, he is really the most selfish that we've ever seen him in one of your stories. The entirety of the story is really him proving that he's emotionally fourteen years old, which is actually a little unusual for you. Your Harrys are usually much more adult. However, I am reading this many many months after the first time i read it, and I like the story more than I did at first reading. Still not one of my favorites (that seems to be Blue Steel at the moment, given how many times I've reread it), but more enjoyable than my first reading.

I have read all of the stories that you have posted to this site, and can honestly say that this is the best one I have read. It may not have the outstanding structure that some of your other works have bit what it does have is "feeling". Finally a fanfiction where harry says screw it and stays the course. Where the adults close to him actually realize how badly they screwed up. Thanks for that. If you ever do decide to add to this I would love to see more of the students reaction.

A wonderful story. I've always loved narratives that depart from standard "human" culture or thinking, and I believe you did an excellent job with it in the first chapter. It was a delightful twist to a mostly cliché plot, and those are always nice. The second chapter was an interesting contrast, almost seeming to be an entirely different story, but it certainly complemented the first quite well, and I can honestly say that I have never really seen a better redemption of Dumbledore. The only thing I can really think to complain about is not seeing more of Harry's life in the Enclave, but I can certainly think of several reasons you wouldn't want or need to show that, and if I'm being honest it's not really necessary for the story at all anyway.

This is a uniquely satisfying story. I liked the first chapter and absolutely loved the second. Many thanks.

Meh, if it left the cup and presumably the dias it stood upon unharmed then it would presumably only destroy the obstacles and not the people whom he no longer viewed as challenges in his way towards his goal if his aria was to be believed.

The only thing that left me unsatisfied is Hermione's fate. She was just as much a victim of circumstance as Harry was and she was presented with an all or nothing scenario that always had her losing out in the end. She picked the one she had always believed in instead of what who she should have believed in in retrospect. In my mind she learns from this and somehow applies that brilliant mind she is supposed to have into becoming a Veela herself if only to apologize and be accepted by Harry with open arms after forsaking everything including her humanity for him in the future.

The Sirius and Remus thing was well within the realm of possibility and was actually one of the closest things I could have imagined to having happened in canon. Fear, selfishness, greed and immaturity is fine in children or even young adults like Hermione but it is nowhere near as acceptable to see in people who should have been trying to connect with a boy they had abandoned for over a decade. They seem to be the self destructive sort but I honestly could not being myself to feel any sympathy for them. Does that make me a bad person?

Interesting twist on the 'Veela Bond' stories.

-) Harry thrown out of Gryffindor house thanks to Ron's jealousy and everybody jumping on 'Potter the Cheater' bandwagon wasn't surprising. I'm disappointed that Hermione bowed to peer pressure, but I guess Harry will never leave Hogwarts if he had at least one friend left.

-) Hogwarts staff doing nothing to stop the bullying of help Harry to prepare to the Tasks - once again, no surprises here. McGonnagal is useless, as always, Hagrid is blindly devoted to Dumbledore and the Headmaster is playing his little games. I'm surprised Moody/Crouch gave him no hints about the First Task; Harry killed by the dragon means no 'blood of the enemy' for Voldemort.

-) At least after his expulsion from Gryffindor Harry was able to talk back to Snape, not caring about House Points lost by his former house anymore. And even stop Dumbledore's lecture by demonstrating that he doesn't care about his wand snapped.

-) Nice job avoiding Helpful!Goblins cliche. They are bankers, not solicitors. At least they answered to Harry's letter, something the editor of Daily Prophet never bothered to do.

-) I'm glad to see Harry had fun 'dancing' during the Yule Ball; something he'll never have if he was forced to attend.

-) Nice scene with Merpeople; Harry trying to figure out who exactly is his hostage (using Ron the Traitor as a hostage was a dumb move on Dumbledore's part'), befriending Chieftain's daughter and protecting mermaids from Snark!Krum.

-) I had to admit you completely fooled me when Harry approached Beauxbatons carriages to confront Fleur. I really believed he became the cold uncaring bastard able to enslave Gabrielle despite her age. So his words in Dumbledore's office, when he pledged his alliance to the Veela Enclave and immediately released Fleur from the Bond were just as surprising for me as they were for Delacour family.

-) I'm pleased to see Snape beheaded. I don't know why he attacked Harry despite Veela escort. Maybe he snapped because he saw the son of James Potter doing something completely Slytherin. Maybe he realized he can't abuse Harry anymore. Honestly, I don't care. The vile pathetic man who was ruining the generations of students by offering substandart biased teaching; the man who was drooling at the thought of two innocent men Kissed by Dementors deserves nothing less.

-) While the end of the chapter sounds Harry finally found his place in the world, I'm not so optimistic. Deluding yourself into thinking you are not a human is not healthly; it's only a question of time before Harry loses touch with reality if he keeps thinking like that. I can only hope Veela can notice this tendency before it's too late.

Your story is better than most of the Triwizard stories. And definitely more original.

-) You don't have Helpful!Goblins who bend backwards to help Harry just because he remembered Griphook's name.

-) You don't have Gabrielle who ages ten years in a single day, immediately becoming irresibtible beauty for Harry (who conveniently transforms into a muskular 17year old hunk).

-) You don't have cliched Manipulative!Dumbledore, but the man who actually regrets his multiple mistakes and tries to find a redemption by cleaning Hogwarts.

-) Harry isn't trained by the Founders, he doesn't use rocket launcher to kill the dragon, and doesn't start to dance like Fred Astaire after a few lessons with Hermione.

Instead we see the bullied and isolated young man who finally rejects what he sees as his 'human' part and uses Slytherin cunning, research and blackmail to find a sanctuary inside the Veela Enclave.

Wow this was a pretty cool and a really original take that ive never seen before. The only problem is that now im craving one last chapter to cover harrys life in the enclave, more of dumbledores changes to the school and harrys views on humans getting out. I read what you think about your past writing and i disagree, they are mostly pretty great with original ideas and fresh takes and your one of the best hp fanfic authors ive ever read.

I read the original version of this when it was first posted and, though I was vaguely dissatisfied by how it turned out, I still enjoyed it over all. This version feels far more complete and, as a result, is far more satisfying. I've happy to hear you're writing for own entertainment again and hope you enjoy writing as much as I do reading your stories. Thanks for sharing! Happy Writing!

I have only recently discovered your writings and I just had to tell you that this rewrite, especially the second chapter, was outstanding. I love well-written AU fanfiction, and this captured my interest from the start. While I love the HP novels, there are so many places where I find myself shouting at the characters, "Can't you idiots see what you need to do yourselves and not dump it on a kid?"

I'm looking forward to reading the rest of your works on fanficauthors.net. I hope that I enjoy them as much as I've enjoyed this one. Well done!

This is a positively delightful short story.

Reminds me of 'Make a Wish' where Mr Black's answer to almost anything was 'reducto.'

Terrible how Snape lost his head in that meeting with the headmaster.

Awesomeness!

and yes i was genuinely terrified for a moment there when harry was talking to fleur, well played

chrwain01 posted a comment on Wednesday 22nd October 2014 6:43pm

enjoyed it, didn't really expect the way it went especially from the title (was leaning towards Harry as a house elf), but was a refreshing change of form, if (because of the novel-new structure if nothing else) not quite having the closure that other stories have.

thanks

I really liked this story, I would also be interested in reading a chapter, harry at the enclave.
