Wow this chapter was definitely worth the wait! I really loved the sort of romantic/tropical/honeymoon theme you started off with. It was really great. We havenít really had that many romantic moments with Krum and Rose so I really enjoyed this one. I think it was due to Viktor having a workshop, as I never anticipated him to become a carpenter or something like that and it made him appear a lot more relaxed and free which was nice to see.

Another thing I really liked with the tropical theme is that by placing a story in an obscure location, like youíve done, it instantly makes it a lot more exciting. I mean, I never expected Viktor Krum to be in a tropical island creating a weapon out of wood. It brings out the unexpected in people is really what I mean to say and I canít wait to see what other unexpected things may happen.

I really liked how you showed how both of them have matured and aged together. The way you described the changes in them was quite shocking and it really showed how being on the run has effected them both physically and mentally. Though the physical changes werenít the nicest it was lovely to see how close they had grown and it was Roseís comment about Viktorís accent which really made my heart warm.

I may be on my own here but I loved the facts you provided about the island. By just knowing things like theyíre not allowed to drive cars there, what they grow and what they speak it allows me to visualise it so much more than I would usually. It was also great because Iím geography nerd and now I have a little fact file about the island stored in my head which makes me happy!

I thought something was up when that woman began talking to Rose. I think it was the gestures and the fact that Rose couldnít understand is what began to set up that eerie air that something wasnít completely right. A bit off topic, but I loved the idea that she was set to Fleur for French lessons it seemed like a very Hermione thing to do! Back to the point though, she thought the person was her brother, but she said she looked like her brother with her short hair so itís making me a little suspicious. Could it have been a mirror or something else shiny? Or maybe it was her brother? All these theories and they may not even be right :P

I canít believe that thereís already a cliff-hanger second chapter in! I really canít think who it may be. Krum has a hulky figure but itís been worn away since Azkaban and I have a feeling all this build up wouldnít have been done if it was just him. Perhaps itís someone from London whoís tracked down Rose and Krum. Or maybe itís Hugoís boyfriend as we never actually met him, I donít think. I may be wrong though as my memory is really bad!

Anyhow that was a really great chapter and Iím eagerly awaiting the next so I can find out who the mystery man is!

Author's Response: Thank you so much, p_c! I'm so glad the chapter was worth the wait, though I'm going to try super hard to update a lot quicker next time. I don't really know where the idea to have Krum do woodwork came from, but I'm really happy you liked it. I was hoping it would show that he was settling in really well to the new environment, finding ways to keep busy and all that.

I've never written a sequel before so it's a little nerve-wracking figuring out how to show the characters growing without ignoring what's come before. Hopefully the changes in them feel realistic given how hard life on the run has been.

Yay! I'm so glad you liked the bits about the island. There will be a few more related to the culture of the island in the next chapter, so hopefully it won't get too tedious. If you're interested, since you said you're a geography nerd, the island itself is fictional, but I based it mostly on the island of Moorea.

I almost feel bad now about throwing in a cliffhanger so soon! I do plan to have this story move a lot faster early on than the first one, but hopefully not too fast, and I'll admit, this one will be a bit of a false start. And you're right, Hugo's boyfriend hasn't appeared yet, but he will pop up eventually!

Thank you so much for the lovely review. I really appreciate it!!
