Review:Courtney Dark says:
Oooh, this was a really good chapter! And I'm pretty sure I say that nearly every single time but I especially enjoyed this one, especially because it was so action-packed!

I have to admit, Esme is growing on me - she certainly seems more sympathetic towards Harry's situation than she was when she was first introduced, and I love all this fire and sass that she seems to possess but I'm still not quite sure what to make of her - this is probably because I just can't imagine Harry with anyone else other than Ginny at this point - especially considering Esme reminds him of her. But I don't want him to me miserable forever, either! And I don't think Ginny would want him to dwell on the past and forget to live.

Wow, that was quite rant-y. Sorry about that!

Esme is skilled with memories, man! She is obviously a very talented witch, and I actually found her interactions with Hermione really interesting to read.

And then we had Tennant. It didn't surprise me to hear he was working with Lady T actually, I always thought there was something a little fishy, or off about them. And though she is evil (mwahahahaha) I don't blame Lady T for getting frustated at Tennant. He seems quite, erm, incapable and I knew, the moment he threatened Lady T that he'd just made a very, very stupid mistake, especially after reading what Stoops said to Lady T.

I LOVED the Ministry scene - it was definitely my favourite part of the whole chapter. It certainly reminded me of the Ministry break in during the DH, but it also unique in it's own way - obviously Ron and Hermione know their way around the Ministry a lot better by now, which would make the job a lot easier! And I really loved the characters they chose - or were given to play.

And yay Susan! Coming to help them out. I've said it before, but I'll say it again: I really love Susan and I'm so glad you chose to incorporate her. And I really hope she's not Lady T because that would be disappointing.

Author's Response: Hi, there!

I'm glad that Esme's initial appearance didn't put you off of her character for good. She and Harry have a complicated past and they're both trying to figure out their feelings. It's a bit odd to imagine sexagenarians still behaving somewhat like teenagers in this regard, but Harry and Esme aren't exactly normal for their age. Harry's never really been in a relationship with anyone other than Ginny -- let's just say that his one awkward date with Cho doesn't count -- and Esme has focused more or less exclusively on her career.

Esme has enormous skill with memory magic. She's also a very tough, skilled Auror, as well. That's why Harry views her as an equal, which is pretty key to the chemistry between the two of them. Esme, in turn, respects Hermione enough to actually approach her for some advice. I like it when strong characters develop an appreciation for one another.

Tennant is pretty worthless, but he's an important part of Lady Tenabra's plans. I just don't think you can make a good HP story without having Hogwarts involved in some way.

I'm really glad you liked the Ministry scene. I enjoyed every word of writing it. Ron and Hermione are so good together. And all of the mockery of Blaise and Mrs. Zabini made it that much sweeter.

There's Susan again. I adore her, and you'll be seeing a lot of her for the next few chapters. So much fun to write!

Thank you so much for all the kind comments and support!
