I thought it was Filch, honestly. But once again, some kid with an axe to grid. It's really sad that some people are so consumed by grief and resentment that it turns destructive. It's a good thing they caught Addison when they did--it may have saved him from turning that grief and resentment into something more destructive: HATE.

Exactly!

Hmmmmmmm.....perhaps the boy had a reason, but frankly it smacked more of vindictiveness and malice to me than a legitimate problem. Yes, he lost family because of the war, but Harry didn't start it. He just happened to be the poor soul who was placed into the position of having to deal with it. For the rest of his life Harry and those who fought with him will always remember that situation and those they lost. Sigh..... if the boy and the Board are willing to go to so much trouble out of resentment of Harry what will they do to future targets who might not have his support and/or resources? But, as always, it was an excellent chapter, and I really liked seeing Harry and Prof. McGonagall talk with each other! Here's hoping that the Board has had their fangs drawn at last! They should be ashamed of themselves for the whole mess, and for that matter, so should Filch!

Abraxan replied:

You're right on all points!  It was more vindictiveness than anything else on the boy's part, and yes, Harry and the others who fought in the war will always remember those they lost.  I'm glad you enjoyed the scene wth McGonagall - I like her, she's a fun character to write.  Glad you liked the chapter!

This is such a good story. I really like the way Dumbledore and Mcgonagal helped Harry and Ginny our of a sticky situation. It is great that Harry caught the spy so soon. The boy was wrong but also to be pitied. It is really hard for children to choose the right side when so many of their family have not. I thought it was great that Harry feels bad about the subterfuge. He fooled the boy into thinking he was one of the Hogwarts spirits but he felt sorry for the boy who had lost so much in the war. Harry has a good heart in this story. It shows in what he thinks is a good story about a little girl learning to fly and a young boy blaming the man he thinks took his family away. I look forward to more of this story. Thanks so much for writing. pms

Abraxan replied:

Thanks!  Harry has a good heart in ALL of my stories, because I believe that's his true nature.  But yes, he's matured quite a bit in this story, so his concern for the Ravenclaw boy, his regret for the subtrefuge and his thinking the story about the little girl's flying was a good one, are both signs of that increased maturity.  And you're right, it's hard for a child to make a good choice when so many of his relatives made the wrong choice. No wonder the poor kid's confused! 

Glad you liked the chapter!  Thanks for the nice review!

*laughs* It seems that the board does have a few problems here with credibility, esp. given how quickly Harry & Ginny can move if necessary (having a phoenix is a most useful way of circumventing some things). I did like the way the spy was dealt with and permanently put out of the spying business; I rather hope he was disabused of any notions of revenge by having it revealed just what evil his grandfather, uncles, and father had done to earn them the rewards they received. I suspect he doesn't really realize just what they did; if he does realize it and doesn't care, he may need to be at least watched, if not forced to take a crash course in just why that was evil.

Abraxan replied:

I don't think he's a bad boy, just grieving and misguided.  I think he'll be okay after a while.  At least he was only spying and telling on Harry and Ginny - if he were really a bad kid, he would've found something worse to do to them.

Glad you're enjoying the story!

OH!!!!I hate cliff hangers like this. But is is a good well written cliff hanger. When is the next chapter??? Are you going to let them get married next chapter or 4more down the line??? You are very talented at story telling torture!

Abraxan replied:

LOL!!!  i didn't mean for it to be a cliff-hanger!  I'm glad you enjoyed it!  The wedding is COMING SOON!!!!  Thanks for writing!

Harry should turn this little pr*ck into a rat and drown him. If all the little Death Nibblers have a beef with him they should man up and fight him fair not tatle tale like little bi*chs. Harry did NOT kill or send to jail any one not wareing the Dark Mark. They had to make that call it is ther falt not his. As always love your writting thanks so mutch.

Abraxan replied:

I'm glad you love my writing!  But Harry's matured and is living within the rules - most of the time - so he isn't likely do do away with that kid, sorry!  Glad you're enjoying the story!

Nice chapter Abraxan. It's good that the spy got caught... Maybe Harry and Ginny can have some peace now. They deserve it. Great job!

Abraxan replied:

Yeah, Harry and Ginny would appreciate some peace!!  Glad you liked the chapter!

i have some trouble with this one - rules made for rules sake should be broken, preferably over the head of the idiot making them - I do not remember any instance in canon where Harry and his friends were not justified in breaking the rules that they were not punished for - and the idiotic rules in this volume that the board is insisting on should be broken, or used as firewood to roast the corpses of the SOBs.
even at 50 - I have no patience with idiots and 'mrs. Grundy' (see Heinlein)
good story overall -
and I enjoyed the 1st installment of the Star Sons

Abraxan replied:

Some rules should be changed, yeah, but this one actually has a good reason to exist (think "Lockhart").  They should have made an exception for Harry, but if they had, there would've been very little conflict, resulting in a boring story, and we can't have THAT!  LOL!

I'm so glad you liked Star Sons!!  If  you'd leave a review on the Star Sons page on Amazon, it might help my ranking in the search engines - pretty please?  :)

Thanks for writing!

Very good here, and it was interesting to see what all happens now with the little spy being caught, though the board is getting right obnoxious it seems. Also enjoyed Minerva letting Harry know that he's not the only one that has lost friends as well, though he has put up with a lot more than she may have in a way, given that he was pretty much dragged in and drafted, rather than any typw of volunteering. Good job this chapter.

Abraxan replied:

Thanks a lot!  Yeah, I thought it was important to remind both Harry and the readers that he isn't the only one who's grieving.  I also enjoy showing Minerva's soft side - it isn't THAT soft, but it's there and I like that about her.

Thanks for writing!

Nice chapter. I like the fact that Harry pretty much scared the piss out of Thayne. Wedding next! I'm such a sap, I know.

Happy Writing!

Having Filch hanging by his thumbs in the dungeon seems poetic. Of course Harry and Albus would never do that but Ginny might. On the other hand maybe Harry should donate some of his dreams to the three members of the board. Thanks for the fine chapter. W.

Abraxan replied:

Yeah, Harry donating his dreams to those three (well four, plus Filch) WOULD be "justice," wouldn't it??  Too bad it won't happen.  Great idea, though!  Glad  you enjoyed the chapter!
