Another great chapter. Tor's interactions with Terry are cute - he's clearly done some research to find out who she is, because I don't think she ever told him she was a Slytherin, or that her last name was Greengrass.

(And speaking of her last name... I'm wondering again about that. In this chapter she mentions how her father is her hero, and that Yaxley is mostly undercover, so it made it even more surprising to me that she goes by her mother's last name instead. It doesn't quite make sense to me.)

This chapter made it so much clearer just how much Tor idolises her father, and in a way that's made her blind to what he is really doing out there as a Death Eater. It'll be interesting to see her change as she socialises with "the enemy" more and realises how much she's been brainwashed. I thought her rationalising Terry's blood status "he HAD to be a pure blood" was good. She doesn't know, so she assumes the best so she can keep talking to him. I am so excited for the moment she finds out he's Muggle born!

Author's Response: Hello! :) I'm glad you're liking the interactions with Terry, and you're right, he's done some digging as well! I like writing their bantering and cute little conversations, especially at these early stages.

Yeah, I'm really glad you're pointing out that it's confusing because I'm trying to think of ways to clarify it! The unprofessional answer is that I wanted her father to be a known Death Eater, and really like Yaxley's appearances in the HP books. In terms of the story flow, it gets explained a little better I think in a couple chapters, but basically they just chose to go by their mother's name at school. Then if Yaxley's cover is ever blown, they can hide underneath their mother's name and not be targeted, if that makes sense? Also, I'm not sure about England but I know a lot of people who go by their mothers/hyphenated names, and I wouldn't want to curse my kid with an initial at the end of the alphabet! :P But I will try to clear it up! :)

I'm glad you liked the intrinsic nature of Tor's support for the DE, and how she's blind and brainwashed in a way to the truth. You're right, she is in denial in a lot of things and chooses to believe what is most convenient! :P I'm so pleased that you're excited to see how she changes! Thank you for another great review! :D
