It's Roots in Water here with your review!

Wow- how nice it is to be back in the world of Brienne. I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but you're doing a fantastic job of weaving in the events of the "Prisoner of Azkaban" and melding them with the events of Brienne's life. Not only does it help to make the story more realistic and tied into the world of Harry Potter but it's also really nice to "read" the third book in the series again. It's been too long since I last gave everything a read through.

I absolutely loved the reactions everyone had to Brienne's statement. Even though they were shocked and had some doubts about the severity of her statement, they were still worried and tried to comfort her. It was really sweet to see George hold her like that, especially because of the level trust and understanding that it conveyed.

Their disbelief about the severity of her statement was not mean or meant to be hurtful. Instead, it really showed just how young they are. They haven't lived through a war, they aren't used to expecting the worst and always preparing with the worst in mind. Instead, they aren't quite prepared to handle a problem of this magnitude.

I find it interesting that even now that she's blurted out the worst of her story, she's willing to let them forget that she said it. She really doesn't want them to worry for her and I wonder how George will deal with this, since he won't be able to show his concern very openly since it will make the others suspicious and curious.

The snowball was a really fun scene to read. I really liked how carefree they were, how comfortable they were with each other. Snowball fights are always fun.

Quick question: Had Brienne sent Nyx to see Stanley Meadowes and I've just forgotten? If not, how was his letter delivered with her owl, since I can't see how he would have been able to attach it, especially since it would have been more convenient for him to use one of his own owls.

I'm really curious about the last line of the chapter. It seems like it could be interpreted in two ways: firstly, that she's received bad information or, secondly, that she's aware of the possibility of receiving negative information. They're very similar options but one is a lot more suspenseful than the other. :)

All in all, I really liked this chapter. I think that you're continuing to do a great job of writing the interactions between the characters and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for them. Thanks for requesting a review and I hope that my comments are helpful!

Author's Response: Hi! Long time no see! It's lovely to read one of you reviews again :)

I'm SO glad you think their reactions were believable. I didn't want them to seem like they didn't care at all, so I'm glad you picked up that they just don't know what to do xD

Brienne hadn't sent Nyx, but I do remember a couple of times Hedwig arriving with unexpected post for Harry xD I don't know if that's right or not!

The last line is supposed to be mysterious, and it can kind of mean both things.

Thank you very much for your great review and I'm glad you liked the chapter! :D
