Wow! You have such a detailed description and back story for the quintapeds and the other dark magical creatures. I'd noticed that it had been brought up in other stories that they were becoming more of a problem and I had always wondered why. I thought your explanation made a lot of sense!

Oh, James.whatever will we do with him?

I was curious about Marion's name - here in the US, Marion is the male spelling (though it's very old fashioned and not common at all - I do, however, know a 90 year old man from church with that name), with Marian being the female spelling. Is it common to spell it either way in the UK?

Author's Response: I do! I'm not sure quite when I decided it, but at some point, I decided that I wanted to make the wizarding world's next major problem be magical creatures rather than a new dark wizard. Obviously you need some conflict somewhere, but for me, either the dark wizard comes across as a bit lame compared to Voldemort, or the premise feels a little overdone because Voldemort was supposed to be a step above the normal dark wizard thing. It also feels a bit boring a lot of the time - I mean, we've covered that!

I'll probably still write an Auror story at some point, but I wanted to focus on wizards.

Hmm. Interesting question, regarding "Marion." I hadn't thought about it before, but I guess there could be a tendency to spell it differently depending on the person's gender. In both the UK and the US, though, I've known girls with both spellings, and I happen to like the 'o' spelling better. :P

Thank you for your review!
