Crys replied:

Yeah, the e-mail server is continually flooded with spam, so it's running days behind in some cases, mine included.  Sorry, nothing I can do about it.

Thanks for the review.

You stopped at the good part. You've put a lot of thought into the background of chattel and it shows how seamlessly it fits. Finally someone put Ron in his place. I'm with Harry over his holdings...that seems like too little, especially since he appears to have close to nothing from the Potters, unless they are not an ancient and noble house in this universe--and the Blacks are kinda shabby too. Nice to have Neville being such stalwart companion. Great update.

Sorry, not going to exceed the Teens+ rating.

Unfortunately, Harry was under the impression that his name equated to "old money".  He was wrong in that assumption.  The Blacks were old money, but their habit of backing dark lords has reduced them to broke.  Only 12GP to their name at this point.

Thanks for the review.

I want to read what the scene that greeted him was, and I expect detail. I'd also find it hilarious if the room had come under attack while he was in the bathroom.

Thanks for writing
Keep up the good work and update soon

Nice story, Glad you continued it from Odd Ideas, DId you have to end it at a cliff hanger though :(

Wonder if you will have Ron continue to act like an asshole? If he does I hope you have Hermoine dump him, and Harry tell him to get his act together or they will no longer be friends.

please don't put Hermione with Ron or Niveal. Put her with Harry. The Headmaster is an idiot.

I can think of few authors I would trust to further one of Rorschach's ideas ... you are one of them.

You've done a good job so far and I'm enjoying it. I especially like the way you handled the wedding. So many authors would have glossed over the trauma of the event and had the trio attending the after party with jokes, smiles and blushes. Your version seemed more appropriate to me.

You really do like the cliffys, don't you? A nice story progression chapter. Looking forward to the next chapter!

Crys replied:

Well, at least this was a "nicer" cliffy, wasn't it?

I promise, no cliffy next time.

Glad you're enjoying it.

Ah, the nudity commences! (Well, probably.)

Good part. Thank you for updating.

More soon, please.

This is a sad excuse of a wedding. No best man, no brides maids, no vows of love, cherish, etc. I'm so glad that Neville was able to finally shut Ron up. Legally he was right. Morally he was wrong. I hope they can get that through to him someday. I'm glad Professor is such a good friend to Harry. That helps. The girls certainly know their status. I hope Harry can figure out a way to feel good about this relationship someday. I look forward to more of this story. pms

Crys replied:

Yes, that was a sad excuse for a wedding.  It was supposed to be.  More of a legal "change of status" than anything else.  And Phil tried to make that clear to those of the audience (and readers) who've never witnessed a wizard wedding previously.

Yeah, Ron's attitude is reflecting the pureblood view.  Legally, they're toys.  Morally, they're people, dammit!  Hence Harry's muggle-raised sensibilities colliding with Ron's viewpoint.

I've always liked Flitwick and McG.  Seemed reasonable to make them allies of poor Harry in this situation.

Glad you're enjoying it.

damn... that... is a very dirty cliff hanger.... except for all i know they could be playing Jenga and its shocked Harry.... XD This fic's been awesome so far.... i'll be looking forward to the update.... XD

This is one of the happier stories I've read recently. I do have one concern and one question though.

My concern is that I'm not seeing any difference between Tracey and Daphne. The way I read this, you could mix the two names up in a blender and no-one will ever know the difference. Can you try to put in some personality quirks or occasionally describe the girls so they become two distinct individuals as opposed to a couple of interchangeable blobs?

My question is, since Daphne and Tracey are chattel, only a step up - if that - from a dining room table, will Harry have the opportunity to have a wife that is not an "object"?

Crys replied:

I have tried to differentiate them.  It becomes more apparent in the next chapter when there is more direct interation.

In public, Tracey is more teasing, Daphne more quiet and reserved.  In private, Daphne is much more affectionate, Tracey more bluntly honest and is just as happy to stay at arm's distance.  However, they both defer to him and are trying to gently teach him the role he has to play.  In that part, they are very similar.

Yes, it's been clearly stated that Harry has the option of marrying a "real" wife later.

I am very much enjoying the story, as it is different from most. I like the way you keep up the digs at the wizarding world, I look forward to more.

"Can we kill off the entire Malfoy line just to make a point?"

Aran St. Vines has an excelent point!

hope you follow that one ^_^

Crys replied:

He does.  And the possibility has long since occured to me.  We'll see how it fits by the end of the story.

Thanks for the review.

Not the twist i was expecting after "It was on the way out of the jewelry shop that all further plans for the day were shot to hell," But entertaining to say the least!

This has been an Overly Pleasant, Enormously Exciting, and Downright Interesting piece of fiction to read!=D

Can't wait to see what happens with your twist, if its me I'd be inclined to err on a more voldemort-ish intervention, but as with your last teaser, I can only hope to be curious!

Great read Crys!

I dislike stories where Harry never questions why he is suddenly poor or nearly so after inheriting large amounts from Sirius and being led to believe that the Potters where very wealthy. Someone has obviously been ripping him off!
