Review:Roots in Water says:
I really enjoyed this chapter. It was very interesting to see the Order meetings from the point of view of someone who is not trusted. It was sad, because you could see that she was not well liked, perhaps just barely tolerated, and yet she was the one who had to give the worst news to the members of the Order- that they were next, that they were the ones being hunted.

I enjoyed the little mentions of the history of the characters because it helped to root the characters and define their differences from canon. I found it interesting that Andromeda wasn't that different from the character we know of in the books- she was still on the good side of the war, still considered to be a blood traitor. It was interesting and telling that Lily respected her- a woman who has, at the surface at least, found her path in life and is content with it.

And finally- they kissed! They kissed! I wasn't expecting them to kiss just yet- it seemed a little soon, and yet I can understand why they did so. They are living in a war, where every day could be their last. I particularly enjoyed the way you followed the tea cups as they fell and broke. It was very interesting and it gave some brilliant imagery to the scene- and there's probably a metaphor in there somewhere, if I take the time to think about it.

I think that this was another great chapter and I'm very interested to find out what happens when Voldemort learns of her betrayal- because he will. She can't hide forever.

Author's Response: Yep, you nailed it on the head! That's how I always envisioned that it was for Severus in canon, which is probably why he never hung around for meals or socializing and always ducked out at the first possible moment. It's kind of sad when you think about it, but then again, I'm sure he had business to attend to.

I like Andromeda's character, and I didn't see a huge need to change her, but I did want Lily to see her as the kind of brave, selfless woman that she'd always wanted to become.

Yes, wasn't it Molly Weasley who said something to the effect that in wartime, lots of people got married just because they didn't know how long they had left, and that it was okay for her and Arthur because they knew they were in love anyway, so why wait? I liked using the teacups as a metaphor, and I'm glad you liked it too, because I don't think anyone else has mentioned it to date.

Yes, he will, unfortunately :( Stay tuned!
