Harry and Ginny need to get at least 7 marriage ceremonies done before anyone finds out. Making the bond so strong no one can stop it. Remember 7 is the most powerful magic number. I wonder if 7 times 7 would be just as strong or stronger?

Another spelling error: "alter" should be "altar". Damn homonyms.

This a great story. I've enjoyed it since the beginning, I just wish you had more time to work on it and updated it a lot more often. The long waits can be a bit of a pain. By the way, I like the other story too, but this one is better so finish this one before going back to the other one.

I realy like your story. Are you going to have Harry and Ginny go to Hogwarts togeather?

This story truly is amusing as the Weasleys and the Potters intertwine. WHEN will the Weasleys find out that they have Potters living with them, though, I wonder? Ginny's Hogwarts letter would be a rather shocking way to break the news, and I really can't see them keeping it a secret THAT long!

This is such a great story. I love the way that Ginny and Harry interact and Harry supports her in everything in regards to her family. I am so glad that the money way so easily explained although not completely. It is really great that Harry owns the land that the Burrow is built on. That will be a nice gift Harry can give to the family some day. It is amazing that Harry is still undiscovered. It just goes to show how much peoople miss when they think they know someone so well. That was great when Fred and George teased Ginny about the "great Harry Potter". Of course they have no way of knowing that Ginny and Harry are married and living together right underneath their noses. Of course Molly is starting to have feelings about someone moving things around in her kitchen. Will she figure out who her little helper elf is? The plot thickens! I look forward to more of this story. Thanks for writing. pms

I have been enjoying this one a lot! Thank you. I do have a question, though. Will Harry be discovered soon? Or will he still be there hidden when his letter arrives? I know you probably don't like to answer questions, but I can't wait for the blow-up!

I found this a cute and endearing story and I eagerly await future chapters. I do hope the appear soon. Keep up the great work. I am really looking forward to the time when Harry and the wedding are finally revealed to the rest of the Weasleys.

I left a comment earlier but it was short because i was at work :P but now i think ill take the time to say a bit more about the story.
I love that they are still hidden and how they go about the day keeping the secret. There innocence and pure form of love is very endearing and there is something about the name Ginny Potter that I just love :D I think it will be funny when the family find out that Ginny is now a Potter. I also love hearing lines like this.. “You're back,” washis wife's friendly greeting upon his return.

I hope all these bonding rituals will give them some kind of special connection it seems to be heading that way.

Anyway thanks for the story you should continue it till then end of book 7 :P That would be cool.

*chuckle* And mysteries continue to abound at The Burrow. It's amazing that Ginny & Harry have managed to pull this off this long (his Marauder genes are quite clearly showing ;)). I wonder how long it's going to take Arthur to trace the deposit back farther? It's kinda amusing to watch all the Weaseleys bump around the edges of what's going on but no one has a real inkling of what's happening 'tween Ginny and Harry. Of course, even if Harry manages to remain hidden 'til his eleventh birthday, his Hogwarts letter coming there will open things up; OTOH, imagine Dumbles' surprise if the address for Harry's letter is not 4 Privet Drive. I can see a whole lot of fun still ahead here.

Thanks for another great update to this story.

Another chapter of hiding the secret. I'm impresssed. But, I must say I can't wait till everyone finds out that little Ginny Weasley isn't Ginny Weasley but a happily married Ginny Potter.
I so enjoy this story. It has to rank as one of my all time favorites. I especially like the fact that this is one of the most original Fanfiction stories I have read in a long time. I eagerly look forward to the next chapter; wishing and hoping that it doesn't take another Month plus wait. I'll still be here when ever you update, but quick updates make me happy. Maybe I'll even comment again if you give me another chapter to read Soon? Pretty Please?

A starving Biblophile,

An addendum to my prior review . . .

The Burrow's rent almost has to be monthly, considering it is only 49 Glns and 8 Skls (841 Skls total). Receiving 100 Glns a month for 'looking after' Harry, they are in affect both receiving back their full cost of land rent and an additional 50 Glns (+9 Skls) every month. After another month or two Molly and Arthur are certain to be very baffled and very worried.

It isn't quite as massive an amount as I once thought, as you have set Arthur's monthly salary at 307 Glns (+ change). So in affect the monthly income has increased by ~33% (after taking into account the fact that the 100 Glns partially cancels out their monthly rent payments).

I would think that they would know that their landlord is the Potter family (or could find such out without more than a week or two of searching for such info). So perhaps they will discover such at about the same time that they learn from Dumbledore that Harry has gone missing? (I cannot imagine Dumbledore making it public, but I can see him calling in Order members to aid in the search, and Arthur, at least, was a member.) That could give a bit of a lead for Dumbledore, even if letters / owls cannot find Harry due to his galaxy amulet.

I've read in some reviews wonderings as to Molly's reaction. I think shock will be foremost, but after that, I can see her sort of mentally putting it on the back-burner, as Harry and Ginny are too young to even receive the Talk yet, let alone get into any trouble she may worry about. And considering that Molly's mother supports the marriage, Molly herself may find it easier to accept (after the shock wears off) than some might suspect. I think she might insist on putting a second bed in Ginny's room, however.

I wonder if this means that Ginny can attend Hogwarts at the same time as Harry, due to their being married? After all, just a century or two prior it might not have been too uncommon for students to attend while married.

Musings of Apathy replied:

Wow.  I'm glad that I've sparked such an interest in you, that you thought so much of my story.  I'm going to cross post this review on the forum to help fuel the discussion there.  I think some of the members there would find it interesting.

As I recall, in the picture of the Order of the Phoenix from the first war Arthur and Molly were not members.  I do believe that they joined in fifth year because of their children and their family's close ties to Harry at the time, as well as, of course, their strong sense of right and wrong.

Thank you for taking the time for such a detailed review.  It brightens my day.  Feel free to join us on the forum for possible discussion there.  I'd be happy to bat the ideas around with you.

This new chapter was a welcome surprise!

I had not considered the full implications of the Twins receiving their letters at this time - that only Ginny, Ron, and Harry will be left at the Burrow for the coming year.

I note also that in ~2 to 3 weeks Figg will finally arrive back in Surrey. It also happens to be about 2-3 weeks until the next deposit of 100 Glns. From your story I cannot recall if the rent the Weasleys pay is annual or monthly, but if it is the latter they may view it as some odd reduction in their rent (as they keep paying it - only to have 100 Glns returned shortly thereafter). If it is annual, however, then this will not be an available excuse, and their confusion will likely notably increase.

So it seems that in a bit less than a month things will get quite interesting.

If Harry manages to evade discovery over the next couple months, then I can easily see him maintaining it until after his eleventh birthday - if not until Ginny's letter arrives. Part of me rather hopes that it would last that long - as unlikely as that is - simply to 'see' the expression on Molly's face when a letter arrives for Ginevra Potter. I doubt Ginny's grandmother would allow it to go on that long, however, especially once word gets out that Harry didn't show up for his sorting and is presumed missing.

Getting back to the new chapter . . .

I liked how the pressure of needing Glns for Charlie's NEWT class allowed Arthur to accept the usage of the money despite the misgivings and uncertainties that must surely have plagued his mind for a while over whether or not to use it. It truly must have seemed a godsend. Of course, I can only wonder with glee as to what Charlie's face will be like when he opens that nice little bag of coins Ginny slipped him - only to see it full of more Galleons and Sickles than likely exist in the Weasley family vault most of the time. ^_^

Molly's and Arthur's reaction to the vault were more or less what I expected, although I expect it will be more extreme once they realize that the deposits are monthly - especially if rent is collected annually.

The new bonding was nice, although I wonder what significance - if any - Harry's inability to find that former meadow has. I still think that first bonding was special in part due to the land itself having somehow 'blest' their union (thus the glow that spread out into the land around them). Perhaps Harry and Ginny have somehow bound themselves to the land - Harry's right as its owner, Ginny's through marriage?

The signifcance of using her new name in the ritual was a nice touch, although I admit I had expected the wearing of the rings to have a similar effect - rings they seem to have possibly forgotten about. Or maybe they do not wear them as it would be too noticeable for Ginny to be wearing that ring? The fact that the ever additional bondings are making it easier for Ginny to see through concealment magic upon Harry is a nice touch. I wonder what other effects might be (unknown to them) accumulating due to their multiple bindings?

I quite liked the bit with the Twins and Ginny, but I have to admit I half expected another marriage binding to occur when I first read:

“'Do you, Ginevra Molly Weasley, take this man, Harry James Potter, to be your wedded husband, bound magically from heart to heart, till death do you part?'”

“Yes,” Ginny agreed immediately.


^_^ See, you've used so many marriage bindings that we now expect even the twins to unknowingly initiate them! And a binding by an officiator is one of the few types Ginny and Harry have not had the chance to use as yet, as well! :lol:

As a final word on this chapter, I can only think that the near miss with Molly (ie: She knew that some things seemed to be in the wrong place in the kitchen, but this time didn't give it too much attention.) is a foreshadowing of things to come - ever more often near misses, things that seem just a little 'off'. I will be a bit surprised if the deception lasts even till Halloween, let alone Christmas or next year. There are just too many things set up to reveal something major this school year - Charlie's 'spending money,' additional monthly deposits into the Weasley vault of 100 Glns, fewer at the Burrow to explain near misses, Figg soon to return to Surrey, and so forth. Something big is coming, and I rather suspect it will occur either a month from the present or about the time Molly gets her first letter from Charlie after he leaves on his first field trip.

I quite look forward to the explosion of confusion and astonishment as the truth is revealed and explained. ^_^

Delightful story, good chapter, but mainly you've got me wondering about what's coming up, regarding the remifications of the H/G bond! For example, what happens when Harry's Hogwarts letter gets delivered to 'Harry Potter, the smallest bedroom, The Burrow, Ottery St. Catchpole'. Or will it be 'Harry Potter, Ginny Potter's bedroom'?

And how about the letter addressed to 'Ginny Potter'?!?!?!?!?!?

You have me on tenterhooks here! (Well done!?)

Love the idea.

One typo I spotted:
"one moment, sudden;y, he was sprawled"

Thanks.  Somehow it was already fixed offline, but not online.  Online is now fixed and you have been given credit at the bottom of the chapter.

Thank you for your interest in my story.

Yay, more =)

I'm really enjoying this, as well as the similar ones you pointed out.

John Davis posted a comment on Thursday 13th September 2007 7:40am

enjoyable story as usual
sorry to see that Ginny didn't reveal it to the twins, they could have helped in the secret and they would have enjoyed helping out
I look forward to the next update and hope it comes quickly
I look forward to Arthur and Molly learning that their landlord is married to their daughter.
