Hello again!

Another great chapter, although I did find this one a little bridge-y.

I love the detail about the magical world you're putting into this story. The kind of controversy you've already built up about whether or not Harry is to be believed, the depth you've put into Slytherin House- it makes the world you're writing in so much more vivid and you continued this with Amelia's conversation with Professor McGonagall.

I've never really thought about job opportunites relating to Transfiguration, but McGonagall's advice sounded totally realistic. I like the relationship between Amelia and McGonagall- the way there's always going to be some animosity due to the rivalry of Gryffindor and Slytherin but they seem to get along pretty well all the same. I can sort of see why McGonagall likes her.

Also interesting to see the whole Harry/Ministry/Voldemort question driving a bit of wedge between Oliver and Amelia...

Only criticism of this chapter would be that it felt a bit short... I suppose I'll just have to go off and read the next one!

Author's Response: I'm glad I'm evoking the world of OotP well - as mentioned before, it's a fascinating and dangerous time, and really is a turning point for the wizarding world.
Amelia's relationships with teachers tend to be very reciprocal - teachers like her because she likes them, Snape and McGonagall in particular. She is a good student and very skilled in Transfiguration, so it's not just about her being able to schmooze with the teachers, but very much about mutual respect.
I do tend to write short chapters - I'm trying to move away from that, but old habits die hard :P Thanks for the review!
