Hey again! I'm here with another review :)

This was another great chapter--I'm liking this story more and more as it goes on. The scene with Dumbledore was probably my favorite. A Hogwarts student behind the attack? You really know how to keep a reader guessing! However, I think you should go ahead and start the chapter off with that flashback section. It would make for better flow between the last chapter and this. Then afterwards you can go to the prank scene, and the rest of the chapter would have a more logical sequence :)

Speaking of the prank scene, I had one question about it while I was reading. Why would Harry and Ginny be clapping? It doesn't seem like something they would approve of, especially Harry. Unless they were doing it to blend in with the rest of the students. This isn't a big thing, or anything you should change--I was just wondering about it.

The scene where James professes his love may have made my hatred for him even stronger. But please don't take that as a criticism, because it's great that you've made me feel so strongly about one of your characters! I mean, he tries to make Lily feel guilty for kissing her own boyfrind, then blames Chris for it? Pretty twisted, if you ask me. But I guess love does make people kinda crazy :P

Overall, I thought the writing was great. Your dialogue was especially good in this chapter--it felt very true to life. Other than that scene ordering issue I mentioned earlier, I thought the whole thing was an effortless read. Awesome job!

Author's Response: Hey! Thanks for coming by again!

Thank you for the advice about the arrangement of the scenes. When there are too many scenes in the chapter I'm always unsure as to how I should arrange them and this chapter was a particular problem. I'm really grateful that you helped me with it =)

I think that Harry and Ginny clapped at the moment, you know? They were in the Great Hall with everybody so it was just right for them to pretend to like it just like most people had. I didn't think that I should single them out again. Just wanted the Marauders to sort of have a moment.

Thank you for the hatred =P Really, I appreciate it! =P And don't worry, I'm not taking it as criticism. Even if it was, I wouldn't have minded at all. And yeah, that's what I wanted to show: love making you go so crazy that you don't know what you're doing anymore. I hope I was able to bring it out =) Thank you!

Yay! Good dialogue! =D I'm so happy to hear that! It's all because you and other reviewers who give me such good tips.

Thank you so much for another review! I can't wait to see what you think of the next chapter. It's my favourite one so far. =D
