Hello. I am FINALLY here. Apologies for the delay, but catching up on a fic is always one of those things you want to actually set aside time for, rather than try to squeeze into about five minutes, especially when you have, you know, EIGHTEEN CHAPTERS to catch up on. I am a bad person. :(

I guess it must be a real shock for Albus to come across his parents' history written down so brazenly in textbooks. I mean for a start it must be so surreal to think that your dad's whole life is documented in such a way!

Poor Albus really does need a dose or two of self-confidence, doesn't he? Bless him. I'm sure he's just as brave as James and Rose, but in his own way! Besides, fighting against Voldemort wasn't so much about bravery as it was determination and loyalty to the cause, I guess. Bravery would almost come second, if you really believed that what you were fighting for was right. So I think Albus would have been able to face it. :)

Eleanor preens a lot. Aha, she's definitely related to Gilderoy! Niece. Right. That makes sense. I love that quote from the book, incidentally. So very much like Lockhart! Anyway, I'm gonna say Eleanor's not the culprit. I think it MUST be a Ravenclaw though - either that or a teacher at any rate, and that one seems unlikely. I'm not sure. Hmm *ponders*

Author's Response: Ha, ha, don't worry about the delay. I still haven't finished SL's story about Remus among the werewolves, because it was so intense I wanted to wait until I had time to read it properly - it's not really just the sort of thing one can skim read - and then I got so many chapters behind, I kept putting it off. Must read it properly sometime, actually. So I know EXACTLY how you feel.

*laughs* You're not the only reviewer to mention Albus needing self-confidence. Like I mentioned on the Nuthouse, Pheonix_Potioneer wants to give him and another character fake Felix Felicis to boost their confidence. I seem to have a tendency to write insecure characters actually. Either that or ones that act really controlled, but are struggling underneath.

And yeah, that's a good point about Albus. He's very caring and loyal. I could see him being like Arthur Weasley actually, in a war situation. Or even Molly, with her "not my daughter". I could see him reacting like that if Lily or somebody was threatened or one of the little ones - Fred or Roxanne.

Weird how both our characters were talking about the same book, wasn't it? With all the ones Lockhart wrote.
