Like the story.

However you have it a bit wrong about the rapiers. Rapiers are sharp on both sides as well as a tip. A rapier set up for practice has steel guards hinged at tip which lock together at the tip. Typically practice rapier or one used for stage, re-enactors or fencing is an unsharpened blade, which while still pointed is about as sharp as a butter knife.

I am a Classical Fencer and the rapier happens to be my main weapon. I have two, a Scottish swept hilt rapier with a 36" blade that weights about 1.125 kilogram [2.2 pounds] and a 36" Italian rapier which is a little lighter at 0.9 kilogram [2.0 pounds]. My other weapons are the foil and epee like those used in Olympic/Sport fencing.

You are correct that a rapier can shred clothing quite well using the tip.

Harry's principles are extremely well principled.

I fervently hope that no one connects Voldequirre to Harry Potter.

I approve of Harry saving Malfoy from Wednesday, however it is rather sad that Snape is a prejudiced little git.

Why, by the grace of [insert preferred deity here], would Snape call for being even?

No one messes with an Addams.

Poor Sevvie, you're about to have your life ruined.

I like that the ring is smart and sentinent.

whydoyouhavetoknow posted a comment on Saturday 19th April 2014 5:03am

Dumbledore just isn't that smart, is he?

Harry is odd and yet so perfect.

I am glad they understand Remus was manipulated.

They are growing up very well. I like this.

Ah, Dumbles, you're an idiot.

whydoyouhavetoknow posted a comment on Saturday 19th April 2014 4:33am

Please let Dumbles be an idiot and try to do many things.

It would be interesting if Petunia ever accepted her position as an Addams.

whydoyouhavetoknow posted a comment on Saturday 19th April 2014 4:21am

I feel like Petunia will return home a very changed woman.

I hope the Dursleys receive a proper punishment for the treatment of Harry Potter.
