Hi Jack!

When I saw the title of this chapter I couldn't stop laughing (I'm quite lucky that I'm on my own, because otherwise people might think I'm going crazy), especially if I'm right in what I'm thinking will be coming up soon.

There weren't any questions at the end of this chapter, which means you're going to have to put up with my rambling and (probably incoherent) thoughts on it. Lucky you!

A whole chapter written in Albus' POV was really enjoyable and it's definitely going to help you set up for the sequel. It seems like extra compensation since he didn't appear at all in the last chapter.

One thing I really liked here was that you gave us a reason why Albus was put in Slytherin. It was his choice, but we can also see that he lacks some of the braveness and courage that are typically Gryffie traits. A lot of writers just tend to stick him in there without any real explanation of what makes him a Slytherin. His general obliviousness (is that a word?) to all things romantic is quite endearing.

The flashback to how they became friends was really enjoyable. The thought of a young Scorpius and Leo makes me laugh so much (I can't help it - if they weren't so funny I might not seem like a madwoman to my flatmates). The idea of them calling Albus crazy is even funnier, and they're such a double act already when they're just young kids.

The spoon throwing, of course, is a very important point of the story. Pivotal, I'd say. And I'm pretty sure you hid some deep metaphors in this chapter too...I just don't have the mental capabilities of working them out right now.

Author's Response: Sian?! What a beautiful name!

Were you laughing because of the spoon thing I have going on this story? Heh, yeah I was really excited to write this chapter when I got the idea for it!

Him not appearing in that last chapter was a mistake :/ oh well, yeah...I also wanted to try and explain Ellie's social "situation" in her first few years, because a few readers asked about that.

Ha, I love how blissfully oblivious Albus is "to all things romantic," it gives him a realistic quality for sure. Plus it ties in perfectly with the sequel! So excited!!

Ah yes, young Leo and Scorp are SO crazy that they need a "sane" person to balance them out, eh? My sister loves how Leo and Scorp have developed in such a way that they've "clinged" unto Albus. For example: they drag him to quidditch practice.

Oh yes, very, very important. Without the spoon throwing, there wouldn't even be a story. Ha, it's not that deep. Albus is the "bent spoon." Well, I guess you could make it go deeper than that, but it's just a silly-fluffy novel.

Cool! Always wonderful hearing from you, and I expect that you'll be at that meeting tonight. Very important matters to discuss :P

Jack
