I would like to comment this:

So like Dumbledore planning his own death, it's my theory that if Harry willingly decides to spar with someone and loses, the wand would know that it was "planned" enough that it doesn't change allegiances. Does that make sense?



I think that magic in HP is essentially based on intention. A good hint to that was given by JKR in the Ministry-fight where Harry tried to crucio Bellatrix, and she told him that for the spell in to work he had to mean it. That shows clearly that the intention is the essential thing. This is also visible in a lot of other Examples, see the Patronus where the Form of the Patronus is individual and represents something from the mind of the caster.

So, you did it again! After forcing me to read "Consequences of the Hearth" in one go, and then C O t Mind - wich you did not finish aargh! - I´m now glued to Master of Life.

As usual with your Stories, I can´t stop reading. At least until there is nothing left to read...

So, keep going. I´ve read fanfiction since years, and there ist simply very little das comes close to your level of writing.

Finishing the Consequences Trilogie would be highly appreciated!

Gest wishes from Germany!

Wow.
I'm in a Author Note.
And my vacation has addled my brain. I can't recall how I was inspiring. But I'll take the kudos and run.

Liked the scene. "Stop trying to hex me and hex me!" was great. Would have loved to see someone else's reaction to the sparring.

Good work with the Martha lady. You're stacking the deck for a great next few chapters. Next, you'll be using a few more movie scenes. Hm. What would work here? Maybe a few "embarrasing Ginny" photos dragged out by Molly? :)

Good work.

Of course you were mentioned in an author's note.  It was your idea!  It was much fun to write as the other short story, so it was a pleasure.

Hi Mr. Intel, This was a lovely chapter all full of the pathos of lost love and tha angst of young love. I do think that there are many things that are between the lines here and as a mature adult they are fairly easy to percieve. I hope that you allow Ginny to understand that she must allow her parents to give her this wedding as it will complete the childhood ties that envolve any parent child relationship and get their adult relationship off to a proper start.

The link to your forum doesn't work for me.

Hmmm. I find myself struggling to accept just why Ginny, barely 17 years old, if that, is marrying Harry in the first place. Oh, that's right. Her mother half-pushed them into it so they could have a holiday overseas. It all seems rather extreme to me, and embodying a disproportionate sense of priorities. That thought just occurred to me on reading this. Shucks, Ginny hadn't even thought of the cost of the wedding ... is she ready for the life-long commitment of matrimony? At age 16?!

> Harry left the Elder Wand in his regular robes and wondered idly if losing in a sparring match would transfer its allegiance to his opponent. He somehow doubted that.

Convenient!!! Why would the Elder Wand discern any difference between a 'sparring match' and a bonafide fight? Disarmed to a superior opponent is disarmed to a superior opponent?!

Mr.Intel replied:

I'll check on the forum link.

The reason both Ginny and Harry accept the marriage is summed up by Harry in chapter three:

"I want you to come with me, Ginny and there’s never going to be any one else, so we might as well...”

Basically, they know that they love each other more than the average 16/17 year old.  They know they aren't going to love anyone else, so it makes just as much sense to get married now as it does to get married later.  Does that mean they have a wealth of marriage sense?  Definitely not, and that will be manifest in later chapters.

For the Elder Wand... It doesn't discern in and of itself, but it chooses the wizard.  Consider Harry's words in "Flaw" from DH...

Dumbledore’s death was planned between them! Dumbledore intended to die, undefeated, the wand’s last true master! If all had gone as planned, the wand’s power would have died with him, because it had never been won from him!"

So like Dumbledore planning his own death, it's my theory that if Harry willingly decides to spar with someone and loses, the wand would know that it was "planned" enough that it doesn't change allegiances.  Does that make sense?
