Hehe, I love your Austen references.
And argh, that annoying Dolores. It was a great thing that you criticized the society and didn't forget about the war, incredibly accurate and only made me live Moody and Grimm even more, all the while adding some crude reality to the story. And the school thing also helped there.

Slughorn was great too.

And Minerva to the rescue! I also wanted to take some time to appreciate your graphics. I really love this CI, and think it really portrays the best of this chapter. Minerva's leaving was almost like in a masquerade ball!

Ugh. Bloody Tom. What is he doing?
What's between him and Grimm? And isn't Tibbs a bit melodramatic? I bet he'll enjoy Min saving him for the second time that night :P She really, truly cares about him and it's time for them to realize it.

Still laughing at Dolores Vultur hehe!

Author's Response: Austen references are always relevant, I tell myself. :P And this portion of the story had a very Austen-esque feel to it, with all the talk of matchmaking and breeding. Dolores zeroes in on Grimm in a strange way, and I had an interesting time exploring her adolescent self. She's very much the popular wannabe, and as I wrote her, I thought of Pansy from the books. They're clearly set in opposition to characters like Hermione and Minerva, demonstrating a terrifying sort of femininity. :P

I'm glad that you liked the inclusion of the war and its impact on the characters. It's something that's often missing from Marauder fics, sometimes even from Hogwarts-era stories, and I think it's important to maintain that kind of atmosphere. I liked being able to link Moody and Grimm in this way because, otherwise, they're very different, and wouldn't likely interact.

Grimm = melodrama. XD I don't know why, but I'm drawn to writing exaggerated, somewhat nutty characters (maybe because I'm that way...? *hides*), and Grimm is no exception. He overacts, he's flamboyant, he tries to hard to play a part and it always ends up backfiring on him. But like you said, it gives Minerva the opportunity to show that she does care, even if she still continues to deny it. ;)

Thank you again for reading and reviewing this story! It's wonderful of you to take the time! ^_^
