Oof, I saw on my phone this was posted Friday night and then knew I wouldn't be before a computer until now! Tormentful, I've been hankering for more of this fic. BUT HERE IT IS. Ha, good evasive reaction from our Minty-G to the Prophet headline - it's readable as legitimate surprised upset, or if she is our Mysterious She, a kind of numb guilt. Still, good for her, ploughing on with work; since she's the Trainee in the story we get fewer insights into her Being An Auror in her own determined right, so it's nice to be reminded of those virtues she has which explain WHY she is an Auror. On a similar note about character traits, I do always enjoy drawing attention to the similarities between Sirius and Bellatrix, and like the exploration of how virtues can be shared without principles being shared. And huzzah for 'inappropriate' emotional reactions like laughing during grief; the human heart's crazy like that. A good handling of this part of the aftermath of a tragedy, though I 'look forward' to seeing poor Gideon and Fabian again.

IT'S IVY. I'm calling it. And if I'm right I think that makes me SADDER, because if Araminta ISN'T evil/sort of evil, then she and Gideon aren't doomed! Except they ARE, 'cos he's gonna DIE. That might make it crueller. I approve.

Author's Response: We've not seen enough of Araminta yet. For various reasons. She'll come into her own (hopefully) in the next few chapters though, and we'll see her true potential. All very exciting. And I think it's important to highlight that the likes of Sirius and Bellatrix are very similar, because it all comes back to the whole "choices are what define you" thing which our favourite Headmaster always likes to trumpet. Which is obviously one of the main themes of the series and therefore Very Important.

You'll get a little bit of Gideon in the next chapter (which is fully written and ready to go, but I'm going to hold off on posting it for a few more days BECAUSE I CAN) but at the moment he's not in a very good place, so he's not got masses to contribute to proceedings, bless him. And HE'S ALREADY DYING IN LIKE TWO MONTHS' TIME HOW MUCH MORE DOOMED DO YOU WANT HIM TO BE? Gosh, you don't want much, do you? ANYWAY, lips sealed etc etc but you will be glad to know that all is very soon revealed. Another reason why I'm holding back on the next chapter. I am a cruel, cruel person. Thanks for reviewing!
