Hey Dan!

I wrote out this review then lost it! I'll try and remember everything I said though!

Lady T is getting more and more confident and kind of brilliant too. The way she delivers her speechs shows she's very clever and she always seems to have a back up back up plan just incase meaning she remains one step ahead of everyone. The way she did deliver her speech while also mentally refining it with their reactions really does make me feel she's in politics. You know my suspicions though and I know you won't spoil any surprises so I'll leave it there.

I really liked Hassie and the section with her and Hermione. The quote "It's not faith, dear, Faith is believing in something you cannot see. I've watched you for a long time. I know exactly what you're capable of." is really lovely anyway but worked particularly well here. I hope that Hermione can come to terms with it soon. She's realised about the voice though so I look forward to hearing the story behind that.

I have a bad feeling about Tennant. I don't know what it is but I feel we haven't heard the last from him. He seems pretty useless at his job (loved Ron's description by the way) and he clearly doesn't care much about the students. I loved Harry using Dumbledores quote! It really suited him and of course it worked perfectly in this situation.

I loved the few descriptions of James's children we got here. Victor being a bit of a ladies man and all. The way he used Harrys interruption to his advantage really had me laughing. I'm guessing Artie is with Luna's grandaughter then? That's really sweet!

The attack on the blood order shows how confident they are. I like the fact it gave the chance to show that the two students are capable of becoming Aurors some day. Neville was awesome here too, the way he talked down Harry when he was injured was just brilliant. The moment between Harry and Lily in the hospital was also really sweet. I hope we get to see more of their relationship.

Clearly there's something up with Percy. Not giving them the memory but then changing his mind. The voices in his head, at first I thought it was Lady T in his head as I really think he may be imperiused. The voice seemed to be going against what I'd have thought Lady T wanted though so I was wondering if this was maybe a lapse in her control on him? If that's the case though its good they got the memory! I still think I have a chance of being right though. I mean there's something not right with Percy and who has Percy been spending all his time with?

One final point is I loved the football fan as a character! True loyalty there!

Amazing chapter Dan!

Author's Response: Ugh. I hate writing a long review and losing it. Horrible feeling.

Lady T is playing a lot of different angles in this story. It's hard to be sure what her exact motivations are. The one thing you can be sure of is that she's in it for herself. Other people are just pawns to her.

Hassie is, unfortunately, a one-shot character who's there to give Hermione a little shove in the right direction when she needs it. I modeled her loosely on my great-grandmother, who was a very kind lady who was nonetheless very blunt. It's a combination I wish I could master, especially when writing reviews. ;)

Tennant is another rogue personality in the story. He's also in this solely for himself. Keep an eye on him...

Harry's grandchildren will disappear from the story for a little while, but don't worry, they'll be back and they'll play a pretty significant role. You're correct about James's son and Luna's granddaughter.

The Blood Order has grown very bold. Attempting to assassinate the Head Auror in front of the gates of Hogwarts is a pretty big deal, after all. I'm glad you like the two students. I'd say they have a bright future. And I really enjoy every opportunity to work in Neville.

I would characterize the voices in Percy's head as his conscience trying to remind him of the right thing to do. Why is that necessary? Well, you're right, something is up with him. The memory he finally agrees to provide will prove quite valuable to Ron and Harry. The football fan was fun to include, although I needed *a lot* of help from my beta to make sure I had the particulars right.

I enjoy every one of your reviews so much! Thank you for sharing!
