I HATE CLIFFIES! Having let that out, I will now let you know about the rest of the chapter.
Gee, the Aurors didn't learn did they? I realise that being established Aurors give them some knowledge, but Harry and Ron have been dealing with DE's for a while now. Not to mention Harry been privy to the thoughts of not only Riddle, but the actions of his gang of thugs. Still they balk. I can only hope the boys are able to get to the pitch in time. I do question, just why no one else other than Ginny, has pulled their wand and started defending her? There has got to be Professors present, not to mention DA members and Parents? Surely they are not complacent yet? Hermione seems to be out of action, and some are trying to deal with the fire, but still? I do hope your block is cleared and you are rested enough to get on with the next. I won't be holding my breath, but I will be waiting,
PS The chapter did make sense in the way that the Lestranges would react to Bellas death. And too, maybe the reaction by the crowd. Not necessarily complacent, but a bit more relaxed. Until all the DE's are captured or dead, they can't let their guard down.
Author's Response: FriendofMolly,
trust me, I know. Cliffhangers are mean. Unfortunately, I couldn't see this chapter ending any other way. I can promise you to update again soon, though :)
I think the Aurors, especially Seyrod, are a bit torn because Harry and Ron are so young (but definitely not inexperienced, as you mention!), but they wouldn't have let them come at all unless they had had that experience. In this case I think it's pretty clear that Harry and Ron know better than the Aurors, which is a bit frustrating, I guess.
A few more people around Ginny was disarmed, but there is chaos and panic all around, which gives the Lestranges the perfect opportunity to go after her.
The next chapter will be up very soon! Thank you so much for reading my story. Your reviews are always very helpful, and I really appreciate them. I'm glad that you thought this was a credible reaction on the Lestranges' part.
