Hey there Laura (I just had this moment when I was debating whether myself about whether it was Laura or not, I was almost entirely sure but I couldn't remember where I knew this from, but I checked so it's all fineee)!

It's funny, because today at uni we were doing the sceptical argument from dreaming and the basic idea is that we never know when we're dreaming until we're awake, and this just really reminded me of that when I started reading again. You write this so beautiful, but the premise is so sinister and I'd almost forgotten about that until this chapter when Molly has like... a slip and loses track of who she is a little bit with the business about the Slytherin table...

it's terrifying. Do you know that? The idea that a book could absorb you like that, and you package it all up in this beautifully written second person and I'm genuinely in awe. I mean, I've never read a story where second person worked for longer than a chapter or two... but your decision to have half of it in 2nd person and half in 3rd person is definitely genius and just... ack, I love everything about your characterisation of Molly and just this .

This has still got to be one of my favourite WIPs on the archives.

Anyway, lovely to be back! And I hope to return again soon. Happy writing!

Author's Response: Hey, Helen! Haha, don't worry about it - I'm so terrible at remembering people's name on here, it's all good! :P

You know, I'd never actually heard of that argument until you told me, haha, but now that I think about it, it is startlingly similar... weird. Ah, thank you so much! I'm so glad you like it - and that you picked up on the slip and it seemed sinister. I'm never sure with these things if they're too subtle and people just kinda miss them... :)

Thank you! And haha, I hope so! :P But yeah, it is kinda like losing your soul/mind/control to something inanimate. It's kinda creepy. And thank you so much! I'm so glad you like the 2nd person. It's something new for me, so I'm glad it seems to be working :)

Thank you so much for all the lovely compliments and the great review! :)
