Review:Dark Whisper says:
Well, I do not like Regina McFey. There is something about her that reminds me of Lucius Malfoy and his false pity that he shows Harry. It just isn't genuine. And even though Regina might be telling the truth, I'm not so sure it is to "help" Rose than it is to "hurt" her and make her feel completely insecure... only to tell her "I told you so" when it happens.

It truly is sad that Viktor has had so many failed relationships. A tragedy, really. It seems that he has no trouble getting the girl... it's keeping her that's proven disastrous. ;(

"Viktor destroys lives." Boo hoo. :(

I love this scene at his home. I love that it seems to be in disarray. I love that the seat he is sitting in looks so old and there is a bed placed where it shouldn't be. It's as if it is nearly uninhabitable, and yet here he is to think about things. What is right? What is wrong? The book? Their relationship? The trouble that he is in. The trouble he inadvertantly 'caused' her. He is a man of depth and his thoughts are deep here. Something tells me that he has been here before thinking on similar things thoughout his life. Perhaps someone gave him advice long ago and he comes back to be in the presence of their memory.

I can fully understand and appreciate what it means to truly 'go home' to where you grew up and clear your mind to think about your life. I've done it myself and found it to be quite reflective and certainly reminds myself of my roots and where I've come from.

This chapter is just beautiful and very real to me.

I think you did a wonderful job of their meeting and dialogue. I love the long breath that he lets out when she says that she doesn't want him to end it. It was like sweet relief.

But then Krum is torn a bit in doing 'what is good for her.' I just love it.

I understand your Author Notes about not being happy with a chapter. I too, have had the same issue and it can be paralyzing. I'll have to remember your 'Onward and Upward' advice.

Your talent abounds.

Thanks so much for this wonderfully descriptive, believable, heart-felt story.

Author's Response: Writing someone as nasty as Regina was a lot of fun. I do love a villain. I never thought about it before, but you're right, she does have a Lucius air about her -- very much with her nose in the air, looking down at Rose.

Gah, I still have nightmares about writing the scene at Krum's place. I must have gone through a hundred drafts, so it's EXTRA nice to hear that you liked how it turned out. I suppose the house is a pretty heavy-handed metaphor for Krum's life -- in bad shape but not beyond hope. I imagine he's escaped here more than once before too. I kind of think he likes the chaos.

Yay, I love that you commented on Krum's torn feelings here. At this point, I really don't think he knows what he wants more -- for her to stay or for her to go. He knows leaving would be the right thing, but he so wants her to stay with him. Who doesn't want a man who can't stand to stay away *sigh*

Thank you for all the lovely compliments. I've been struggling so much with my writing since finishing this story, so the kind words are so very much appreciated!
