Amazing! Wow...Whoa... *speechless*
Well, not speechless, but, where to start on how amazing this chapter was?.
Let's see, I shall begin with the beginning. Nice job describing where Hermione, Harry, and Anna were kept and chained up, etc. I hate that the baby's not kicking anymore, I hope it's ok :( And damn Lucius Malfoy for being a sick bastard. Sorry, I hate him and love him too, hate him here for being evil, love him in Above the Clouds for being hilarious.
And aw at the memories with Sev and Lily! That was sweet and adorable, and it added a good feeling to such a dark chapter. Also, the idea of her 'ghost' allowing only the pure of heart to enter the cottage was very creative, nice job. But... if she's not really dead, how does that work? And, this just occurred to me, did Dumbledore know that Lily was still alive?
And good idea, having Snape communicate with Anna through her mind. I was thinking he would show up in disguise or something... Silly me. But it was really cool seeing Anna the Wolf again, I love Animagi. And, hoorah, they escaped!! Wheh!
They ended up at Remus' house? Slightly random, but better there than in the clutches of ol' Voldy.
And now to the end :) Snape appears! and retrieves Anna for Edwin :DD And they first thing she sees is his eyes :DDD (I wish I could create a smiley face big enough to express my joy at this chapter)
Thanks for such a wonderful chapter! Keep them coming!
P.S. I anxiously await the day Lily and Snape reunite :)
P.S.S. Don't fret about long chapters, they're better to me!
Author's Response: OH MERLIN!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SUCH AN AMAZING REVIEW!!!WOW...I don't know where to start!! Thank you so much, you've just made my day!
I'm really glad you've liked where Anna, Harry and Hermione were kept. I thought the darkness would make everything more creepy.I hate and love Lucius Malfoy too...more love than hate but I hated him in this chapter too. Oh...and the baby you'll find out about in the next chapter.
I'm glad you liked Sev's memory of Lily...I thought it would be nice to show how much he still loves her, which will "hopefully" make their reunion more dramatic. There will definitely be a reunion between Sev and Lily and I will probably dedicate an entire chapter to it, later on. As for the ghost thing (sorry, I don't think I explained it properly within the chapter)...it's not really a ghost; rather it's an image projected by one's heart based upon each person's emotional weakness. For Sev, it appeared as a ghost because he thinks Lily is dead and he wishes to see her again, as a ghost. Hope this makes sense. As for Dumbledore he did know that Lily was alive but he didn't make it very obvious.
Ha...that is exactly what I was going to write! I initially wanted Sev to just show up with glasses and a fake moustache, but then I changed my mind as I remembered he was good at occlumency (sp?).
I know Remus' house was very random, but I needed Harry and Hermione to be somewhere safe before Anna had the heart to leave them behind and go with Sev.
Anyway, thank you, once again so much for your reviews (they are the best!!!) and I am really glad that you are enjoying this story...it means a lot to me!
Can't wait for the next chapter of CSI!
