Just as an aside , it's not a ball without dancing.

Thank you for throwing me back into History Class through the Trading Company. :-). I had a horrible teacher - treated me much like Snape treats Harry, actually. (I never made the comparison until now, but it's really very fitting) She somehow got it into her head that I was walking on crutches, and later sitting in a wheelchair, for the attention. Although I don't think she ever graded me unfairly, she did put some red-inked comments on my tests that had nothing to do with the test and everything to do with what she thought of me. And that was aside from the remarks in the class and comments in the hallways.

I never forget the look on her face when I told here the doctors were forcing me to have my leg amputated (through threatening to have the court declare me unable to make decisions regarding my own health if I wouldn't consent, as well as having my parents declared unfit guardians if they wouldn't consent. The doctor was very nice, in that he immediately started threatening even before I'd actually had time to process what he was telling me) because it was quite literally killing me. I don't think I've seen her again post-surgery, which is a pity. I'd like to show her how very much attention-seeking I am nowadays, because most people who don't know it don't even spot anything off with my walking. :-) Perhaps she'll be at my sister's graduation ceremony next year...

i clicked on your link at the end of the chapter out of boredom and was lead to not one, but two different ads, not the picture supposed to be there. as soon as i closed the first, the second opened itself. i would suggest removing the link. as i found the experience VERY irritating. good story so far overall though.

Crys replied:

Thank you for letting me know. Link removed.

Glad you're enjoying the story.

Great chapter, and a good idea for work for the werewolves... it would be great thing

Another excellent chapter C! I like the talk with Patils and the Abbotts. Great job on the varrious teasing between harry and tonks in the beginning and the middle. Excellent dialogue and great plot/social points. Interesting bit with the wolves... Cheerio!

I've been enjoying this story for a while; I'm sorry for not reviewing more frequently but I haven't had anything interesting to say until now.

It occurs to me that "inconsistent time frames" is not quite accurate where werewolves are concerned. After all, they ALL are more or less unavailable the same five to seven days out of every twenty-eight. For magical botany etc., those five to seven days may be crucial for harvesting or treatment of plants or ingredients.

Accordingly, I suspect that using werewolves for contract labor may reduce costs (and therefore retail prices) for certain kinds of ingredients, but might cause a price spike for other ingredients, as those ingredients suddenly become items which require specialized labor. Appropriately planned speculative ventures on Harry's part could yield significant economic (and strategic, depending on the ingredients in question) benefits.

Crys replied:

The "inconsistent time frames" line was referring to the companies doing the hiring, not the laborers.  Basically, some company needs three workers for 2 weeks and four for 6 weeks, nobody for seven weeks, then five for 3 weeks, etc.

Interesting idea to influence the prices of various products/services like that.  I can see how he could depress prices easily, but not how he could increase value of much of anything in a way that would benefit him at all.

Anyway, thanks for the review!

Fantastic story!! I love the interaction with Tonks and Harry. It is refreshing to not have them jumping in bed together right out of the gate. I hope you update soon!!!!

I like the idea of a contractor (body-broker, basically) employing only regulated creatures. I wonder how *Remus Lupin* would feel about running it. (No, I'm not kidding; Remus Lupin makes sense for several reasons, not the least of which is his being a werewolf himself.) Then Remus could hire (don't laugh) *Neville Longbottom* to teach interested werewolves botany/herbology. In fact, there could be *advantages* to hiring lycanthropic herbologists in some cases. In other words, *profitable philanthropy*.

I'm really enjoying the way this one is turning out.
Harry using the combined financial might of the Potter and Black Families to create a business coalition to quietly organize the Wizarding world in an attempt to undermine, harass, and eliminate support for the Voldemort, while at the same time using the political connections and support to curtail Voldie's influence in the Wizengamot and capture or eliminate as many Death Eaters as possilbe.
Potter & Black Inc.?
Harry Unlimited?
Lightside Enterprises?
The Black Watch?
No... I got it... The Magic Consortium: Improving the Lives of All Magical Beings.

Crys replied:

Hmm.  Those are some interesting names.  I'll have to think about that.

YAY!! Another chapter!! YES! I love how Harry's starting to get embroiled in more business stuff, but can we PLEASE get some more Metamorphagus and Animagus training stuff soon? *puppy dog eyes*

Great chapter, I have been waiting hoping a new chapter would come along, love the flirting between Harry and Tonks.

Another fine, well written, well edited chapter. I think that all of the chapter was well handled and believable (as believable as any fictional story can be -grin-). The dialog, the descriptions, everything added to make a coherent whole and a very enjoyable read and a nice addition to an already wonderful story. Keep up the great work and, please, update soon.

I love the story, and i have a plot bunny for you. As most (if not all) of Voldemort's Supporters are pure-blood supremicists, Harry could have an article published detailing the fact that Tom Riddle is a half-blood. It might lose Voldemort at least a few of his supporters.

Crys replied:

Harry DID write such a letter.  See the end of chapter 20 and the beginning of 21.

Another excellent installment, Crys. I've been quite enjoying this story as it progresses, and think this is the most unique ways of separating Harry from the master manipulator that I've yet seen. All of your characters seem to come full blown from the 'pages' and have a three dimensional feel, which is sorely lacking in so many stories. I predict this to fall among the greats of HP fanfiction.

love the story so far i like the way things are going slowly in some respects and fast in other's plus harry getting a proper education! so that he can beat voldemort! keep up the fantastic writings and i like this tonks is his love interest it makes os much more sense!

Mark Safransky posted a comment on Saturday 6th May 2006 7:37am for 32 - Yule Ball

Another great installment Crys. I do like the labor company idea that the Patil's and Abbott's have pitched to Harry. It does make a large amount of sense. I take it that next chapter will have Draco renouncing the Malfoy name? That should be interesting to see as well as Voldemort's reaction to the news. Keep up the great work!

Crys replied:

Yes, Draco will be renouncing the Malfoy name.  It'll be off camera, but it'll be mentioned.  Voldemort and Lucius will be . . . unhappy. *manic grin*
