After the long wait since the last chapter I was positively baffled at your expertly writing. I had completely forgotten how your story's one of the few fan fictions here that combine simplicity, panache, and empathy in a, in fact, perfect way without overusing certain phrases or trying to use too many 'sophisticated' or 'fancy' words.
Your characters are captivating and believable, there's no stereotyping or black-and-white-portrayal. I think Rory's one of the most fascinating personae, and the insight into the work of the aurors was enlightening and interesting as well (and funnily enough, reminded me of Criminal Minds).
So, yes, I liked this chapter.
Author's Response: Um. Wow. This is such a lovely thing to wake up to. Thank you so much.
Hahaha, I've never seen Criminal Minds, but I've read a few crime-related novels over this past year or so, so I had a vague idea of how their interaction would occur. Of course, they're Aurors, so they would do things quite differently, I'd imagine.
It's a balance, I think, when you talk about vocabulary usage. I need to remember that some people reading this are going to be quite young, and won't understand certain words, which could be a major turn-away for the story, but I've also got to keep it engaging and sophisticated to a point so that I convey that I know what I'm doing... somewhat. :D It takes a lot of editing and re-writing phrases or words, I guess.
Slowly in the chapters the characters are going to seem far more *not* black-and-white, to the point that people probably won't like the story any more, but hey-ho, that's just how I've planned it, so we'll see what happens. :)
Thank you so, so, so much, my dear for your beautiful review. I'm so pleased you liked it. :D
