Post OotP. Harry must deal with the loss of his Godfather, Hogwarts gets a new Defense Professor with more than a few secrets, and Voldemort watches from the shadows, awaiting a moment to strike. Just a typical year for the Boy-Who-Lived, really...

All bets cancelled.  I was sure Milton was a time travelling Harry, but even if Harry did go back in time he would never work for Grindelward.

Really, the 'Melbourne Institute of Magic', can't us Antipodes get an interesting name?  Just because no institute is over 200 years old doesn't mean we've forgotten to be creative.  My school's name means [founder's name]'s island in icelandic! :)

If Harry were a Mind Mage he couldn't kill Voldemort, but then there has got to be some sort of loophole  - I mean, he's got Hermione on his team.  And he's definately doing some wandless magic.

A Holden GTS.  Either you're really obssessed with cars or you are Australian.

Perhaps it would be nicer if that bit with Ginny were a bit subtler, it's beginning to smell distinctly cheesy.

Hmmm...  Isabelle's interesting, to say the least.  You've obviously gone to some effort to put her in the picture, she must be important.

I'm growing to like the twins.

 

Another thing I enjoyed was Harry's modesty.  Too often, Harry seems to boast of his acheivements.

 

However, I'd have enjoyed sitting in on that conversation with Dumbledore about Isabelle.

'She has beauty beyond our expectations'  - and what exactly does that matter for?  If this story is about a noble soul, wouldn't the love interest remain the love interest even if she looked like a toad?  

 

The conversation between Malfoy and Lestrange was well done, although the logic in your quartet overhearing escapes me.

Why does Milton care for Isabelle?  Sorry, I've got to keep reading.

It's good to see the not so attractive side of Harry coming out.  That said, it's a bit confusing about where he goes off to in his huff.
