This whole story has involved that push and pull between the little bubble of safety at Hogwarts and the growing tension in the outside world, but no where has that been more apparent than in this chapter. They go from being completely absorbed in worrying about their N.E.W.T.s to this blatant wake up call about what's really going on in the outside world, and the back and forth continues all chapter. It was brilliantly done, and I think you did a wondrous job of capturing what it must have been like to be a student at Hogwarts at this time.

I remember someone in canon (I want to say Sirius) talking about how a lot of people thought Voldemort had the right idea until they realized how far he was willing to go to get there. That seems like exactly what's happening in this chapter. The Ravenclaws are being awoken to Voldemort's true intentions and they realize that isn't what they want for the world.

I really enjoy this story. It's absolutely amazing the way that you've captured Molly and Arthur at this time in their lives.


Author's Response: The murder of Twyla's parents really comes as a slap to everyone - brings the war home in a way they hadn't really felt before, and it escalates things as well, because her father wasn't Muggleborn. It takes them from the childhood worries of exams straight to a reminder that shortly they'll be grown-ups, and in the same danger as everyone else.

I think it was Sirius who said that, yeah - most people didn't really take Voldemort seriously, not until he started killing people in retaliation or merely for sport. The Ravenclaws are starting to get it here. And now everyone realizes that really NO ONE is safe.

Thank you so much!
