Marry too closely related people? You mean like ... incest? Oh my goodness! Like Walburga Black, née *shudder* Black?

Well, what can you do if your sister of all people is the best looking at your family function, because all your first cousins are even worse inbred? :-D

By the way, in my opinion non-magical history classes were the same at school. I concede that there must be a point, or else lessons are, pardon the pun, pointless. You have to learn not only what happened, and why, but also what that means for today, what's left of that event and what was changed since then. That means that history lessons must be about rulers and governments, laws, which events changed the society, and how, and how that accounts for our society today.

Still boring! It's much more interesting to find out how the common people lived during past times. What they ate, what their clothes looked like, what kind of dwelling they lived in, how they travelled or if they did at all. What technologies were available, did they have luxuries, and how did they get them if they had access to them at all? The names of important generals are good to know but what armour or uniform did the troops have? What weapons? How were they deployed, or organised?

Luckily there are ways to access information from people who looked into those questions. My preferred way are computer games. Mods mostly, because they are a labour of love for the period depicted. And a lot of them are written because the vanilla game is NOT historically correct and the mod author hated that. Especially if their research results are integrated into the game as a kind of reference work, or civilopedia *wink*.

That quidditch game irks me like few other scenes in the canon works. Snape is a potions master. Okay, he should teach Potions then. With an emphasis on TEACH. Perhaps he's even qualified to teach Defence. Huh? Because he's into Dark Arts himself? Is a murderer qualified to do crime scene investigation? Or someone who has a flower bed at home qualified to teach Herbology? Hm, okay then. But he's not an athletic type. How is it possible that he has a referee license for quidditch? When would he have gotten it and why would he? Or else, how is it possible to let someone referee a game if he DOESN'T have a license? And refereeing unfairly, to boot. He has NO right to hijack that game! At all!

And some people wonder why Dumbledore is hated by so many, if he allows for shit like that.

Interesting take on canon ... Harry asks questions and learns.
Guest chapter 2 . 2/17
Harry is a total d-bag towards Hermione. He could've easily said "Hermione, I spoke to McG and she said..." I would consider this bad friendship.
Lord of the Pit chapter 1 . 2/11
Now this was a well thought out story. Creative and inspirational. I truly hope to see either new chapters or a sequel for this one. Thank you for a fine piece of literature. Keep up the good work.

(I don't think "finding" and "found" mean what ou think they mean so maybe take another look at all their uses in all your stories. Don't get me wrong - you are an amazing writer and you write a thousand times better in English than I ever could in German or any other language, so it's not a "pick on the non-native-English-speaker" thing at all - just, really, the way you're using "finding" and "found" is...well, take another look at the way they've been used.)
