Review:CambAngst says:
I couldn't resist one more teensy, weensy chapter today!

I dislike this Jonathan fellow more and more as I read. He has a Dursley-ish quality to him. Not mean or hostile, but far too set in his need for order and tidiness and regularity. The annoyance he feels toward Hermione and his attachment to the trappings of society just didn't fit with her.

"Strange wasn't a favourite word in his dictionary." - I think that says it all.

I'm not sure what Hermione was about to do, but the coats suggest that she was planning for a trip to a less than warm clime. Hopefully looking for someone or something.

Poor Ron. I love that something has awakened and he wants to find her. Too bad the bureaucratic rules are getting in his way.

Yes! So happy to see that Ginny's unshakeable faith -- or at least her need to continue to believe -- has finally be rewarded! You did a terrific job of describing Knockturn Alley and making the whole scene come alive in my mind. So there's no known cure for Memory Dust. I sure hope that somebody is able to find one. When she first bumped into the muggle man on the street, I was convinced it was Jonathan. But unless he's two-timing on Hermione with somebody named Martha, I guess that isn't the case. I was rooting for her to grab the man's newspaper and run off with it, but I guess just seeing the picture was enough for her. Hopefully she can convince Harry to help her follow up!

I really loved your exposition on loneliness. It was lovely, and it set a perfect mood for Ron and Hermione's encounter. These two lines were especially moving for me:

"The sky was now completely dark, first stars glinting in the distance, giving Ron the desire to reach out and touch them, knowing answers were somewhere in the dark, far away, and she was one of those stars.

"There was a world far beyond, and why he longed for it so much he still didnít know. But then, maybe he didnít need to know everything."

You are weaving an amazing story here. Can't wait to find time to read more!

Author's Response: Yes, Jonathan isn't necessarily a bad bloke, but he's so different from Hermione. At first glance they might think they're right for each other - they're both very ambitious and hard-working, they truly care for their careers and are well-educated, but that's as far as it goes. They just don't go deeper.

For some reason, I really love Knockturn Alley. It's my favorite magical setting and I always try to find ways on how to get some of my stories to that place. It's so mysterious and darkish and hardly explored, so it's always fun to write about it. And haha, no, the guy Ginny bumped into wasn't Jonathan.

Yeah, the entire loneliness part comes from my philosophical moods back in the day. It's always really interesting to take a term like that and elaborate. I had fun with it and it's amazing that you liked it.

Thanks for another wonderful review. I know my replies probably suck because they're so short, but believe me when I say that I sit in front of my computer for minutes just staring at these reviews and I want to hug them and hug you because they're so nice. You really made my week with all of them. :)
