I actually really like this chapter. I'm a sucker for character development :P

I find it really interesting that Amelia and Oliver are each others best (and pretty much only) friends and are in different houses. Makes me wonder how that happened. I'm seeing a friendship evolving from rivalry and forged by hours spent together studying in the library. :P

I really like their relationship, though. The line about how Oliver could pity her because they were equals was a really interesting one. I have a feeling Amelia doesn't see too many people as her equal, so that's pretty high praise.

I think you're handling the tension between Amelia's blood status and her house quite well. It seems realistic. She obviously isn't the only non-pureblood in Slytherin, but it would definitely be something she would need to overcome.

Just wanted to stop by and let you know that I'm still reading! I just finished chapter three, but I'll have to review it later as I'm out of time.

Author's Response: I'm enjoying the character development too. It's a rare occasion when I'm writing a new character whose backstory I've already worked out - I tend to either wing it or write characters I know so well that I don't really bother developing them for readers. Characters are always my favourite part of a story, and I'm finding Amelia quite rewarding.
You've sort of hit the nail on the head with their friendship really. The rivalry was definitely there when they were younger, but it's not as strong now, as they're not in direct competition for their favourite subjects.
It is high praise indeed, Oliver is the only person she really sees as an equal. As for the blood status, she more or less gets by by pretending she's a pureblood like everyone else. They're aware of her heritage, of course, but she does her best to not draw attention to it.
Glad you're still reading, and thank you for the review!
