Well, that was interesting.

So first, Draco saves Hermione's life...though it doesn't really seem like he has any choice. Either he saves or he doesn't, but either way it is going to be an inconvenience for him. I'm glad that ultimately he makes the decision to save her (restores my faith in his humanity a little bit). Then again, does he really have a choice with a very angry and very powerful Harry expecting him to?

Though, there is also the fact that his mother doesn't want Hermione to die in the house.

I do NOT like the Head Auror (seriously, that comment about Hermione and Harry living together?!?!), though I suppose that is your intention. Still, I think that JKR paints us a world where one would think, after the end of the war, those in power would be huge Harry supporters. And though I don't like the idea of someone NOT being a Harry supporter, I do like that you thought of that and still put him in a position of power. You're taking away some fo the idealization, and in my opinion it adds to the story.

Then again, if Kingsley finds out the blatant and quite honestly undeserved bias that the Head Auror is holding against Harry, I can't imagine he will be allowed to openly continue doing whatever he can to get rid of him.

Also, I see Pamela leaving them ending in disaster for her. I for one don't trust the wards that the Aurors are going to put up around her house. Especially as that's her only means of protection.

Can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: Hi Cassie!

Draco doesn't really have a choice but to save Hermione. If the Department would have given Draco the 'okay' to leave Hermione to die, I think he would have ended up trying to save her anyway. Not only because of Harry and his mother (which he might use as an excuse), but also because I don't think he could live with himself if he didn't save her. Draco's just not good at being evil. He's not cunning, he's not particularly cruel, and he's not fantastically bright. I think it's fitting that he once studied healing magic in the secrecy of his library.

The Head Auror will be addressed in a future chapter! Unfortunately, the department heads are elected by the Wizengamot. In my story, the Wizengamot are mostly house heads from old familes. It's made up of a mixture of half-bloods and purebloods. They elect the department heads, instead of the minister. Thus, Kingsley doesn't technically have full control, though his complaints would be taken very seriously by the Wizengamot. The Head Auror probably didn't realize that Harry was buddies with the Minister.

Pamela is actually probably better off for leaving, if she can get away from those Aurors. The wards might be faulty, but the Department isn't going after her anymore. She'll be coming back in a later chapter.

Thanks for the review!
