Hey Susan, thanks for updating this story, I have been so excited about reading this chapter and trying to imagine what could possibly happen next. Minerva is being so mysterious, I loved how you had her stood almost as if she was watching him. This is almost a completely different side to Minerva, despite the fact we haven't read much of her. She's always been one about honesty now it seems she may have something to hide, I really like reading about her in this way.

The whole concept of this story and the way in which you write it as well, is just great. I usually try to picture fic's as a movie, and this works perfectly well, black and white with a sinister30's/40's soundtrack playing softly in the background from time to time. Okay so it's slightly odd that I'd picture that haha, though I have a lot of fun doing it and seeing a young maggie smith play Minerva. She really is my favourite character!

When I saw Tom's name I couldn't help but smile, like I can't wait for things to unravel so we can go deeper into this!

Oh and once again, you've captured Moody perfectly! Everything you write about him, and Minerva too I know that they would do, I can picture it. Your writing gives a great imagery, I love it!

10/10 as always,
Bex

Author's Response: Bex! Thank you so much for this review! I'm sorry that it's taken me this long to respond - it was wonderful to see that you'd reviewed, and even better that you'd enjoyed the new chapter too. :D

I'm glad that you enjoyed that scene with Minerva! It wasn't in the original plan, and it doesn't have much to do with the plot, but it has this strong visual quality that I couldn't resist. It was fun to portray her as a mysterious femme fatale type character, especially with the way that she appears here as nothing more than a shadow - Moody only guesses that it's her, and makes up a story to suit that hypothesis. It's an interesting way of constructing a scene, which is the best part of writing this story - it's letting me play a lot of tricks with narrative that I normally wouldn't attempt.

I'm getting to the point where I could write Moody all the time! There's something about him that leaves a lot open to interpretation, and it helps that JKR hasn't yet released any additional information about his history, so I don't have to worry about going against canon. It's fantastic that you like his characterization here!

Thank you again for reading and reviewing this story! Hopefully I'll be able to turn out a new chapter soon. :D
