Review:TheHeirOfSlytherin says:
I could totally imagine Harry as a teacher... If bad guys were no more or someone forced him to retire or he knew there was someone to take over he'd trust. Okay, so there are a few barriers between Harry and teaching, but he's good at teaching others and you've only strengthened that belief I have. I could totally imagine Harry being a teacher; DADA or, after this chapter, History. Yep. :D

I can't really say why, maybe because it's something I've always wondered, but I think my favorite part of this chapter was Harry teaching Dennis about Voldemort and the war and his want for kids to know their recent history. People grew up with the stories, Muggleborns might not even believe it, and they'll just be stories to them. It would be interesting to read how people would take being taught about it, so I really liked reading this chapter.

Amazing chapter!

Author's Response: Hi, there!

So I definitely thought of Harry as somebody who was well-suited to teach, going all the way back to Dumbledore's Army in OotP. There are a few barriers, not least of which is that fact that his day job is about to become rather demanding, but it's something he enjoys doing. And he easily justifies it to the Minister as a recruiting activity for the Auror Department.

If you continue reading, keep a close eye on Dennis. He actually disappears for a long stretch of the story, but suffice it to say that he will be there near the end and he plays a fairly important role. Dennis is not just a character, he's also representative of a wizarding society that has become very complacent and naive. Just as Dennis begins to wake up to the uncomfortable realities of the world around him, so too does the rest of the wizarding world gradually come to realize that life is not as safe and predictable as they'd been raised to believe.

I'm really glad you enjoyed it! Looking forward to your thoughts on the upcoming chapters, where the plot really begins to unfold. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
