PART OF 'Life as Dictated by a Talking Hat'. Reposted as a one-shot because people kept reading the Prologue, presumably deciding it stank, and not going on to read the actual story. (Which I think is lots better). I still didn't want to delete it, though - it's kind of fun in its own right. :-) Any ideas on how to improve would be much appreciated.

Blaise probably couldn't expect much, this time. Blaise was a Death Eater's kid, raised by, if not always Death Eaters, at least not blood traitors. Molly Weasley's soul was so clean it squeaked. It was a good thing Blaise had Snape to fall back on, for awhile. Mrs. Weasley was just too...not a Death Eater. Way, way too not a Death Eater to want to keep Blaise for very long.
