Maggie! Yay I got a shout out and Down Comes the Night won a Kecker! It deserves the win :D Iíve missed this story a lot and, of course, Helgazar! I still think itís one of the coolest ship names ever so I was so happy I could squeal over it again :D

I really loved Helgaís disbelief at the beginning of this story. It was so adorable and really realistic. I think thatís the reason why I like Helgazar so much because of Helgaís disbelief that theyíre actually together whereas Salazar appears to take it for granted and doesnít show the same level of it. It kind of shows the impending doom of the two of them.

I really loved how much Helga cares for her students. I thought it was really nice that she and Rowena were trying to make the girls independent people. I can imagine that Salazar wonít be happy with this happening, as he probably has old-fashioned views about women so I wonder how heís going to react to this. Then the way she was sticking up for Mary was really nice too, and the way she believed that this might be a chance for Salazar to change his ideas.

Aw they kissed! Ok I know I shouldnít be awing over this and shipping this ship considering what Salazar has done, but I canít stop myself for some reason. I guess Iím kind of like Helga and Iím under Salazarís spell and heís keeping me entrances and forgetting that heís actually killed someone. Then there was this line ĎSo we sought each other out at odd hours, whenever we could come across a suitable place to be alone.í Which showed how romantic their little forays were.

Iím glad that Elaineís still got the pregnant glow about her and I canít wait for the baby to be born! I suppose that even though Salazar is kind of evil he did make Helga go and apologise to Godric and it was nice to her being more forward for once. Iím glad that theyíre friends again though as they have a really nice friendship.

This line cracked me up though ĎďMe and Salazar?Ē I asked, feigning ignorance. Godric just rolled his eyes.í I think it was the eye rolling from Godric which really pulled it off as itís so unlike Helga to be like this. I hope we get to see Rowenaís reaction to all of this in the next chapter :D

Another great chapter, Maggie, and I canít wait for the next :D

Author's Response: Kiana! I'm so psyched that you came by to review this chapter! And of course you get a shoutout, you deserve it! :D

Haha, she definitely needs a little time to get used to it. She's spent so much time believing it could never happen between them, so it's hard for her to wrap her head around the fact that they're together! And Helga just isn't as composed as Salazar under any circumstances, so I can see why it would seem like he's not as invested in their relationship.

One of the things I was hoping to show in this chapter was how Helga and Salazar can help each other. Her influence goes a long way in helping him practice tolerance. She wants to "fix" him, and at the moment he wants to be fixed. And in return, Salazar helps her face her fear about having an honest conversation with Godric. So in a lot of ways they are great for each other, and I wanted that to come across :)

I'm so glad you liked the fluffy parts! I loved writing them :) And believe me, I know what you mean about feeling conflicted over this ship. I love them too, but they've got some tough things to overcome. "Impending doom" is the perfect way to phrase it, haha. But who knows what the future might hold?

You know, I was actually considering ending this story before the baby comes. But how can I not show the arrival of the Gryffindor baby? I think Godric would be very unhappy with me if I did that, lol. And speaking of Godric, I was so relieved to get him and Helga on good terms again! It feels wrong to have them on the outs, and it was fun to write them being silly together as always.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! You are awesome for doing this, and it absolutely made my day!
