All my favourite characters are back!! :-D
Oooh, if I could get my hands on Lucius, I'd strangle him. He just wants everyone but himself in trouble - Sirius, Remus, Marlene, even Fudge, if it works for him.
I love that Remus took Dora's advice and wrote those three words. But now she doesn't know what to write back! ;-)
She's calmed down some about Remus lying to her, but I still think it is going to be brutal for Remus when they finally come face to face.
We get a new back story - Mad-Eye. You make everything so sad. But the bad handwriting was genius.
They're working on finding Smoky, finally! Some names from the pile stood out - Aislinne Lovegood has to be Luna's mum, who "died when she was nine during some experimental spell". But that was JK canon, and this is new canon;-) Anything is possible.
Kreacher is being creepy, but sweet creepy!
The Sirius and Remus interaction was nice:-)
It's funny how the kids think about going to Ravenclaw or even Hufflepuff (shudder) but not Gryffindor. I mean, it doesn't even enter their minds. Draco is more Gryffindor than anything now. He expects support from his friends, he gets irritated when Pansy turns against him even after he helped her, but he doesn't betray her secret. And when his mum is sad, he just blames himself for it and gives her a hug. If that isn't Gryffindor, I don't know what is.
Next week is too far away:-( I'm hoping for some Dora and Remus interaction, maybe some Dumbledore, and that second case to be done with. If not... I'll accept whatever you give us:-D
Give yourself a magical hug from me for another great chapter! Can't wait for the next!! :-D
Author's Response: Haha, yay! I don't think many people like Dawlish all that much. P
Yes, but that's just Lucius for you; he works best when things are chaotic. :P
I know - their dynamic is rather complicated at the moment, I'm afraid. :P Perhaps... You'll find out in the next chapter. :)
Yes. :) I know, sorry! I hadn't actually intended to have anything about Mad-Eye in there, and then this scene just sort of wrote itself... :P
Yes. They're looking for her, finally, and it's only a matter of time before she's caught... Aislinne is Luna's mother, yes. :)
Haha, Kreacher missed them. :P
I'm glad - they'll have a bit more of a talk in the next chapter. :)
Exactly; I'm trying to show that the prejudice runs both ways, and it's so easy to do that with the purebloods' ignorance/confidence about the possibility of Gryffindor. :)
I think Draco's definitely reached a turning point... But he's also realised that he's different now, and that could definitely cause some problems... :S
There will definitely be some Dora and Remus, and maybe some Dumbledore if I have the space to fit it in. :)
Aww, haha, thank you. :) It'll be up tomorrow. :)
Thank you so much for the review!
