This story is absolutely brilliant. It's like no other HPFF story I have ever read, and I just love the whole concept of it. I don't know how you came up with this brilliant idea, but you should be very proud of it.

Not only is the story itself fantastic, so is your writing. It really is a pleasure to read all your amazing description and beautiful language - very inspiring. Thank you so much for this story.

This wasn't exactly my favorite chapter. I didn't quite understand the part about the fifteen-year-old person who arrived. I guess I wasn't supposed to get it, right? I did however like the wonderful descriptions in the beginning of the chapter, the fact that Fred signed up for the Devil's Duel (but I'm a bit worried that it will come down to two people I don't want to see go: like Tonks vs. Lily or Lily vs. Fred - that would be too sad!) The part where a scent brought Fred back to Christmases at the Burrow nearly broke my heart - a beautiful, very sad little detail.

I think you're brilliant writing saved this chapter, because there was too little happening for me. However, I still enjoyed reading it thanks to your fantastic skills. I expect there will be more action and development of the story in the upcoming chapters, so it's fine!

Author's Response: Hey, marauder5! Thank you for popping by my story. :) I'm so thrilled you're enjoying it so far! Originally I had intended for this story to be four chapters long, about a couple of people sitting in a pub in the afterlife. Once I'd decided on one of those people being Cedric, it got me to thinking about the Triwizard Tournament, and the rest kind of snowballed extremely fast.

I can see why Registration wouldn't be your favorite. It's got a much slower pace. There are a couple of chapters - mostly before Round One - that seem a bit more filler-y but are essential for background information that will come in to play later. As it stands, you're getting closer to when the real story begins! I really hope you continue reading so that you can see what all the duels are like. The rounds are very different from each other, and I'd like to think that each of them will suit a variety of action/adventure tastes. Overall, I must own that despite the Devil's Duel this novel focuses more on the development of these characters and how one essentially continues to keep living on even after death. The way they all deal with death is very different.

The fifteen-year-old person will become much more clear very soon! I kept this person vague so that I could shift the focus to something else in the next chapter, and then could come back later and give that the attention it needs.

Eeep, I hope the upcoming chapters won't be too boring for you! The beginning of Run is a tad bit slow, and there are still a couple more filler-y chapters to go. My hope, though, is that it will be worth it. :)

Thank you for reading and reviewing!
