Okay so I wrote this entire wonderful, rambly review and then, just as I was sending it, my internet cut off and the review was lost for all eternity. And I was very sad and had to get off the computer for its own safety. So this is the gist of what I can remember after calming down--

Now that the fiery inferno that is midterm week in the average American high school has passed, I am free to return to my regular somewhat obsessive reading and reviewing schedule.

Let me just say how happy I am with this chapter. I didn't realize until it was pointed out how similar Owen is to Sirius, but it is so true! I love Sirius, and I love Owen. He is definitely my favorite, and his plotline is my favorite of this, or at least neck and neck with all of the Vic/Teddy relationship or not drama with Iska combined whatever...

Anyway, as to your comment about losing interest, you're not losing mine. I totally understand where you're coming from though. I feel the same way with my fic that is on this site. I think it has something to do with the short attention span of fanfic readers-- myself included. I have a tendancy to like and follow a million fic, read and review and keep adding a thousand more until I don't know which is which, which I've read recently, what's been updated, and so on and so forth. So it doesn't mean, i don't think, that they don't like your fic... it's just they like so many fics. But yeah, I fear tehe same thing with mine. It's like "does anyone give a crap" but I understand, like you, that the semi-boring chapters are absolutely necessary for development, though I feel a lot of readers have a hard time grasping that concept and realizing that one "Dull" chapter does not mean the rest will be. They just like excitement all the time, and with sites like this and fanfiction it makes excitement all the time totally possible...

So to anyone out there skimming the reviews of this for spoilers, like I am guilty of doing: this fic retains its awesomeness the whole way through!

So awesome job, can't wait to keep going, as usual of course. Sorry for the rambling. I think this was more rambly than the first one I wrote last night... haha. :)

I think Owen is a lot what Sirius would have been like if he'd had a loving family. Owen was somewhat on his own after his mother died. He was raised by his bachelor uncle who managed a string of hotels so he moved around and had a lot of freedom, but he always had the support of someone caring. Just not a lot of discipline. The poor boy had no idea how to react when he left and Victoire and his assistant Dorothy went all maternal on him. His uncle had always been more like Teddy - let him work it out on his own and he'll be back when he's ready.

I'm so glad to hear you're still liking the story and taking the time to ramble about it. I went for a long time without any sort of feedback on the later chapters so I was really wondering. I can tell people are reading, or at least hitting the pages, but not what they're thinking about them. You're an angel for reviewing every chapter. I really appreciate it.

Take care and thanks again for reviewing!
