Oh my gosh! It feels like it has been forever since I last read this story! I can't believe it! I'm so so so sorry, I've just been really busy with the last few months of 2012 with school and holiday preparations. Ugh.

As usual, I loved every single bit of the chapter, though I probably loved it most when Venn and Helena were reunited once more. Sometimes, I wish I didn't know how their story would end because every time I read something romantic about the two of them, I can't help but think how their relationship not going to last. :'(

On a much lighter note, I thought the way you described the wedding of Lord Cepheus and Lady Priscilla was wonderful. Priscilla's choice of wedding dress did surprise me a bit, but then I remember you saying something about blue being the more traditional colour than white during that time. And that 'bonding' spell the Wizard cast upon the couple's hand reminded me a lot of the Unbreakable Vow. Actually, I have a question for you: say that Cepheus and Priscilla's marriage does not work, does that mean one (or both) of them die, much like the Unbreakable Vow? Do they get shunned away by their kingdoms? Or perhaps, it was too much of a risk for couples to separate then that they just stay in the marriage even though it's not working?

"The idea is as preposterous as a peasant marrying one of our own." I really like how this line just shows how low Salazar thought of Muggles, just thought I'd point that out. :P

This was a fantastic chapter and I'm certainly coming back for more! ♥

Author's Response: Hi Izzy! It's great to get a new review from you!

I'm glad you liked the Venn/Helena reunion in this chapter. It pained me a lot to break them apart after the joust, and I couldn't resist giving into my romantic urges in this one. Now, they can get to planning their dream wedding and happily ever after... right? ;) Well, I wish it was that easy, anyway.

The bonding spell was a little tough for me. I didn't want to do a straight-up Unbreakable Vow because I thought that could get dicey TOS-wise. So this bonding spell is meant to be similar to that, but without the grave consequences. It's more of a formal way of bringing the couple together as husband and wife and showing that to the attendees. I know divorce was frowned upon in this time, so I guess if the marriage didn't work out, Cepheus and/or Priscilla would do whatever other couples in this age did. If it was just a matter of incompatibility, they might be stuck with it, but I'm sure that if abuse was happening or something, they'd have friends and family who could help get them to safety. Anyway, good question. I'm not exactly sure.

Salazar is quickly becoming readers' least favorite character here, though Rowena isn't far behind. You definitely haven't seen the last of their separate sentiments yet.

Thanks so much for this fantastic review, and I certainly hope to see you pop by again soon.
