Rather fascinating explanation from Harry about the use of deadly force in all of it's many magical forms.

Once again, your illumination of learning the animagus transformation is excellent.

Can we really hurt Draco now? Please?

Musings of Apathy replied:

Patience.   Remember, Draco has neither intelligence nor patience.   How long can he last?

Isn't it a bit dangerous to let Mione have the book without some form of protection? In the wrong hands, it would be catastrophic.. It should be more secure..

Despite that, i like the chapter, a little slow, but you can't have all of them having some form of action.. Really curious about the Malfoy ramification..

Another Awesome chapter!!! thank you ever so much for posting . . . I hope Harry is able to get Draco under control before he does anything too bad . . .

RPG, nice. THough i would have said, a LAW since those are the green tube ones with instructions.

Musings of Apathy replied:

I'll hav3e to trust you on that bit of knowledge.   Luckily this is fiction.   Unfortunately, I have never had the chance to fire an RPG or a LAW, so not much with the experience.

Poor, poor Harry

Musings of Apathy replied:

Are those crocodile tears I see?

Okay . . . first, I did not like Bill's prank . . . that was highly unfair to Ginny . . . and I did notice that she didn't seem affected . . . strike two . . .

that said . . . I'm glad Harry was able to escape the girls, with little damage . . . and Ginny was able escape the room of requirement. . . ball two . . .

but the grand slam was when they were both able to excape the whole school and lock themselves up in the chamber of secrets . . .

I hope you include Bill's reaction to how the prank was circumvented in the next chapter


Musings of Apathy replied:

I'm sorry that you disliked it.   Bill, as Ginny's brother, would have chosen to exclude Ginny from any lasting remnants of the Veela Hex, just encase it was still around.   As for their escape from the school...

Author's choice.   Expediency.

At least Hermione got her kiss in.   And proof, there is nothing romantic between Harry and Hermione (of course, I realize that this would be the clincher for certain shippers of the H/Hr variety)

This was an impressive prank, one worthy of Bill Weasley.

For a typical teenaged boy, these are not the worst things to happen, but Harry isn't typical.

Great work.

Musings of Apathy replied:

I think that most teenage boys would agree with the theory of every girl in their school being actively and agressively after their body as a good thing, but I think that the reality of the situation would turn bad for them when the crowd around them exceeded half a dozen.   Too much of a good thing is a bit distressing and can require medical treatment.

What a great prank. It also goes to show that Harry has access to escape routes that Bill is not aware of. Thank you for a great prank. I look forward to more stories like this one. pms

Good chapter, just one thing that has got me thinking. Many stories make reference to scary Weasley women, technically speaking Molly isn't a Weasley female, she is a Prewitt? so is the temper a Weasley thing or a Prewitt thing? I'm going to post he same question on my Yahoo group to see what it generates.

Musings of Apathy replied:

Thank you fro reading and reviewing my story.   I am a fan of your work.

As to the Weasley women, and I will go to your group and repeat this; there has not been a true Weasley woman born in hundreds of years (or thousands).   What we refer to as Weasley women would previously be the women that the Weasley men are naturally drawn to, fiery and opinionated.   They are strong and quite incendiary.   Molly was this before Arthur picked her and I assume his father's wife to be the same.   Molly and Genetics did their part to form Ginny into the woman that she will become.

Oh, poor male Veela! I can understand why they never leave their settlements. Bet Bill never though that his prank made it possible for Harry and Ginny to get a day together, without interference from teachers or friends. And the room of reqiurement is simply amazing. A rocket launcher, indeed. I wonder what kind of improvement Harry and Ginny will make to the room of requirement when they fix it? If it can be improved, that is.

I love the size of your chapters, I don't know if I've told you before? They're short enough to fill a decent break, yet long enough to give some action. And the frequent updates are wonderful.

Thanks for sharing!

Musings of Apathy replied:

Thank you for enjoying my story and telling me about it.   I am affraid that we are coming to the end of the frequent updates.   I am currently struggling through chapter 42 and contemplating trashing a thousand words to get me back into the flow.

I, personally, can't think of any improvements that could be made to the RoR, and they will be lucky enough to be ablt to learn to recast the original, much less improving on the idea.

Another excellent chapter!

Was Dumbledore implying that there wasn't a Male Veela Charm/Curse and that it was all power of suggestion? If so, what was the 'whisp of magic' Harry was releasing? Was it also just imagined, or was Harry's suggestability sending out the wisps?

Musings of Apathy replied:

No, there was the charm for the Male Veela part, it's just that there was no compulsion charm put on the girls.   What they did was completely in reaction to the male veela's influence to increase their attraction to Harry.

hmmm... did he really expect the 'golden gryffindor' to re-neg on a deal?

Musings of Apathy replied:

Snape can't help it.   He is cynical and intractable and that impedes his judgement all too often.

good chapters update soon

Minerva Granger posted a comment on Thursday 27th April 2006 11:14am

I would have guesesed. As would anyone who truly knew Harry. And Malfoy was lucky to escape expulsion. Thankyou for updating, I thoroughly enjoyed the last two chapters.

freakyfinger posted a comment on Thursday 27th April 2006 3:44am

So even now, Snape still thinks Harry is evil and doesn't fulfill his promises?

Musings of Apathy replied:

Snape has had too hard of a life and has been a spy too long to count anything as done until it is.   He trusts no one.
