Wow. I love it when other people are thinky.

You make an excellent case for both John manipulating Harry on purpose and on why he might be doing it, given where his character arc would be at the time this story is set. I don't know if this is what the author is intending, but your arguments make a lot of sense to me. And I totally agree that Fanon!John is often portrayed as someone with far more scruples than the man we see in the books, or, indeed someone who could rise to be head of the Chicago Mob.

That said, based on the chapters we've seen in this story so far, I'm still on the fence as to whether or not John is doing this on purpose. I agree that this could very well be the case. I also think it's possible that John is guilty of not having paid full attention to the description of how the binding worked-- and/or Morgan left out important details. John's been so wrapped up in the triumph of having acquired Harry, and of owning someone that powerful that I doubt he's spend much time considering exactly what it means that Harry has to obey John's thoughts, not just his verbal commands.

I hadn't considered this ... . Also an interesting point of view, because I could see him so taken with his "new, shiny, powerful-as-hell toy" to really stop and think that the "toy" is human and has feelings.

I'm really looking forward to seeing where Akelios is going to take this and how the relationship between the two of them will develop.
