Ok so the meeting between Harry and Draco stole the show (chapter) hands down. Not that I didn't enjoy the entire chapter, far from that (I'm slowly faaling in love with Astoria - she's so strong and at the same time so fragile), but I've been expecting a scene between them since Astoria said to Hermione that she'll bring Draco around to talk to Harry. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I feel that they've kind of, sort of, grown fond of each other over the years. Or at least more appreciative of each other since they're all family now. Their brawling feels more like an old habit than what it used to be, open, deep animosity. They've both been through traumatic experiences and even if they like to sting each other, they can put aside their differences when more important things are at stake. It was amazing to read their interaction! I almost mistook it for a scene from the non-existent canon Next Gen books that JK never wrote :P

I would also like to commend you for the ingenious spell you invented. Up until this point the only killing curse was Avada Kedavra. Now that there are two makes the story a lot scarier. I don't even want to imagine a worst case scenario for our loved characters. How did you come by the idea? I can't wait to read on and see if there will be further consequences, because I have a feeling it's not the last time we've seen it.

Author's Response: Hi!

No matter their circumstances, I can't ever imagine Harry and Draco being friends. There's too much bad blood there. More to the point, they actually seem to *enjoy* trading barbs at some level, each trying to see whether he can get under the skin of the other. But, when their mutual family is concerned, they can put it aside enough to be constructive if not exactly cordial. Much more on this later in the story.

The blood boiling curse is also something that you'll be hearing much more about. Without giving too much away, the curse and the reason it came to be used on Hermione are closely related to the central mystery of the story.

Ooh! You know what's really neat? Seeing a new reader experience the story for the first time. I've been over and over the story so many times myself, responding to reviews and fixing typos and even occasionally tweaking the substance just a bit. It's fascinating to sort of go back in time and hear from somebody who doesn't know how it all ends. Thank you for that!
