She is so like Sirius -- I'm sure he'd find exploding toilets hilarious. That note aside, I can start shouting my despair at how gut-twisting this chapter was.
New character, new potential love interest that you're tossing into our face, hmm? Maybe? To satisfy those who don't want Siribeth? If you are hinting at that for future chapters, I will board the Tibet ship faster than you can saw 'Quidditch', for some inexplicable reason. I think I want Beth to be happy so badly that I'd ship her with Moody if that was somehow alluded -- thank God it's not, though.
PETER :( Right now, you have once and for all shattered my hopes of you going AU. His attitude is so uncharacteristic of everything you've portrayed so far that I know, once and for all, that this is it, and I feel like creeping into a corner and sobbing.
SHE KNOWS. I feel like I've waited for her to find out for ages, when it's been, what, a few weeks? It feels like centuries, in any case. I'm fairly sure she'll do something stupid though. However (bear with me, because this theory doesn't even make sense in my head), she's going to attempt to get Sev's memories back with James' help so there will be some damage control.
She can't go with Sirius, because he doesn't like Severus and now that the latter's out of the picture, Sirius has more chances with Beth as more than friends.
Wait. What if James has died by then? I WON'T SURVIVE THAT.
I feel like a colony of bumblebees have invaded my head, there are so many questions and fuzzy theories that I wish I could connect, but I can't, because I'm not the one writing this -- and that is a very good thing seeing as I'd probably do a terrible job at it, whereas you are amazing.
I also felt like you needed to know that this trilogy is one of my good friend's list of things to read (she went through my favourites and wrote down what she wanted to read -- it was also the first thing I told her she had to give a look at) so yes. Pointless piece of information.
Wonderful chapter as always &hearts
Author's Response: I can't explain to you what Timothy's significance is just yet! I've heard several great theories tossed about, of course -- but he does come back later on in the story, I will say that. Be on the lookout for him!
It's really only been a few weeks, yes, but Beth finally does know that Severus's memories were preserved! What she's going to do with this information is another story -- but you can probably bank on the fact that she's going to do /something/ with it. VAL, I WANT TO TELL YOU THINGS NOW. I'm sitting here cackling to myself, just so you know. ♥
I promise you that every question you've asked thus far -- that I can remember, at any rate -- has been accounted for and answered somewhere down the line of plot. Honestly! I try and anticipate any questions I'd have about my own story, if I was a reader, and then answer those in my plot outlines so I know where I'm going. It will all make sense in time!
I am seriously beyond honored and flattered that you've gotten a friend of yours to read this trilogy. Like... seriously. That is AMAZING to me, and thank you so much for recommending it to her. I really, really hope she likes it! That's not a pointless piece of information by any means. That made my entire week. ♥
I apologize for taking to long to respond to this lovely review of yours! Thank you so much for leaving it, Val. ♥ I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the next chapter, too!
