This tale could (and does) stand well on its own. As usual, your flourishes, such as the fact that she has a history with McG, were quite well done.

In very few words, you capitalize on the suspense until the reveal at the end with Greyback. Also, the reveal with Rookwood in the begining was excellent.

A great tale. I'm curious though, will the tingling sensation she always felt when she was being watched be further explained? If not, I'm assuming it was merely her heightened senses picking up that the Death Eaters were watching her or is it part of an actual curse that's been placed by Voldy on whoever holds the job of DADA professor?

Great one shot.

Author's Response: I was really trying to maintain the mystery of the story, even while it unfolds, so I left a lot unexplained directly in this. It is very different from my usual style, so it's kind of experimental I guess.

It was more the heightened senses thing than being caused by the curse. I think the curse on the DADA job (what a staffing nightmare for Dumbledore!) would have just made something befall them by the end of the year to make them leave. I actually think there must have been just as many teachers who left the DADA job for benign reasons over the years it was cursed, or there simply wouldn't have been anyone willing to take the job. So I had Ampara's predecessor leave because she was having a baby (and in those days, that almost inevitably meant she would no longer be working).

Thanks so much for the review!
