Hello again!

I know I've said this a hundred times, but your search for historical accuracy never ceases to amaze me. I could see the abbey you were describing so clearly, along with the people inside and their reactions...

Wait. I'm a bit confused. Is Miriam (love her name by the way) a witch or not? Because if she isn't, then how can the abbey have house elves?

I adore your Cho -- she seems to fit both this and cannon, in the sense that she's a bit helpless, but still extremely skillful and kind. Oh, and I like her more than the original!

I can't wait to read her interaction with Cedric :)

Author's Response: Hi Val! Thanks for stopping by :)

I'm glad the historical details worked well for you and that you liked my description. This chapter was more focused on characterization than imagery, but I still like to set the scene.

Miriam is not a witch. Although she's sort of the de facto leader of the healing staff in the abbey, the house elves don't answer to her directly. The reason they're around is because other witches have come and gone as volunteer Healers, like Cho, and at some point it was decided that the elves could be helpful in managing patient care. Naturally, the Muggles had to get used to that, and as you can see by Miriam's reaction to the wand, some of them are still a little unsure about it.

It's great that you like Cho :) I tried to make her more likeable and, as you said, take a little from canon and a little from my own perception of her and who I want her to be here. I find myself rooting for her a lot, too.

Thanks so much for this lovely review! The next chapter will be up on Saturday again.
