Ooh, Taurus! He hasn't really been much of a character before now - kind of just sidekick stock character, but I have so much more respect for him now. I think he's the sort of person Tor could confide in - well, depending on how Taurus reacts to hearing his love life spread all around Hogwarts.

I always thought it would be really difficult for an LGBTQ student to come out during the war, particularly a Slytherin because they (especially the purebloods) are so focused on being proper and traditional and generally narrow minded. So I think it speaks volumes about Taurus, first of all that he loves a Hufflepuff guy who's also a Mudblood (three points against him, in the world of the pureblood fanatics), and that he was able to tell Tor about it. He's clearly in the same boat as Tor as far as having his pureblood opinions challenged. I really hope Tor tells him her own secret.

Unless of course the whole thing was a lie and an elaborate setup to try and pry information from Tor, but I'm really hoping it's not.

The reunion with Terry was great. I love how you show how happy he makes her - the Christmas chapters were so dark and devoid of hope, but now that she's back with Terry the mood of the chapter is much happier!

Author's Response: Hello! I had wanted to reveal Taurus' secret and give him a stronger role in the story much earlier, but there was never quite a good time. I'm so pleased you respect him, and like him as a character, although difficult times for him are definitely coming up. :(

I know, he's in such a tough situation, and I like thinking about him struggling through the same battles Tor has over the past half-year, in this kind of lonely turmoil and challenging of values. It definitely made Tor feel connected to someone, but also showed her the danger and how easily everything can go downhill. I think it would be so hard to come out as well, especially for the Slytherins with traditional pureblood parents. Taurus' parents aren't DEs, but certainly far from being open-minded.

Haha, interesting theory! :P

Aw, I know, I felt so excited for them to be reunited! They're so sweet together and really deserve this time before things get more hectic and dangerous. I'm glad you liked the change in mood, as dramatic as the Christmas chapters were I mostly enjoy writing them at Hogwarts! Thank you so much for this and all the other reviews! :)
