DIMITRIDIMITRIDIMITRI IT'S DIMITRI!

Ahem. I am excited at this development. I've missed Dimitri. DIMITRI!

Oh I love him. I LOVE HIM. "Officially, that was a holiday". Ahaha. He hit Tobias round the head with the Prophet! Amazing. I LOVE THIS MAN. I'd like to apologise because this review isn't going to be at all thoughtful and insightful - DIMITRI!

Oh man, I LOVE HIM. Have I said that yet? Everything he's said ... YES. This is EXACTLY what Tobias needed to hear! Go Dimitri! COCKROACHES. Amazing.

Ahem.

I love how it's still so relevant that Tanith learned what she did from Altair. Because it will ALWAYS be an issue; that wizards are too reliant on their wands, that they don't know anything other than duelling. Love Ron's distraction tactic too; him and Harry are an awesome team! Not hard to see that with a bit more training from Tanith, they'll be the best partnership in the Auror office before long. YEAH.

...I'd been wondering about Gabe's mother. I'd gathered that she wasn't around, but I wasn't sure if that was relevant ... but of course, with someone like Gabe, it HAD to be. And ... I love him. Not as much as Dimitri OF COURSE but I just love seeing his vulnerable side after so long. It's crazy; he's so uncomplicated but yet at the same time so complex. Mind-boggling. And basically I loved this entire exchange. I hope Gabe DOES carry on with Daedalus' work in the end, because it would give him a purpose, something to DO. But Jen's right - stay well away from Doyle sr!

I love this chapter. LOVE it. Basically just for the Dimitri appearance. Well, NO, I love the Gannifer too obviously, and trainer!Tanith is always good fun, but this chapter could have been just the Dimitri bit and it would have satisfied me. MORE DIMITRI PLEASE.

Author's Response: I thought you'd like this chapter. Dimitri comes in and is Dimitri everywhere. And don't worry, this isn't his only appearance in the whole fic; I hadn't expected that much of deep and meaningful from you with Dimitri around. ;)

But yes, he's here to deliver a tall, cool glass of reality to Tobias. Which he needs. I might have been writing this chapter while I was posting the one of Tobias talking in Greece with Dimitri about Tanith, or around that time anyway.

Altair's lessons to Tanith are literally life-savers. Not just hand-to-hand combat, but her lateral thinking in using spells and magical tricks like the Wheezes. Considering she couldn't beat Harry in a straight-up fight, the only things she can teach him are how to be an investigator as an Auror - and these, the tricks of Altair's. I'm glad that showing her as a mentor while also making it clear Ron and Harry don't need her help with everything is working!

This is THE Gabe reveal, yep. The one which explains... more or less everything, at least that Chapter 7 didn't. I'm glad it works, it's pretty much his whole backstory in one go, but finally Mister Mysterious is de-Mysteried. Anyway, glad you enjoyed the chapter! Thanks for reviewing.
