Val! ♥ I actually completely forgot that this had been updated, but I'm trying to catch up now, so you get a New Year's review!

Ah, each time I read a new chapter of this story I'm reminded of how brilliant it is and how much I love it. This time was no different at all.

I'm still a bit confused about whether or not Simon is the only wizard in his family, or whether Sarah is as well. And the wand in the toilet brush - who did it belong to? Have they stopped someone else from escaping? I was so happy to see them getting out and away from the concentration camp though, even though only two of them have made it out. Of course, it couldn't have been a simple escape and poor Simon had to splinch himself, but I suppose they should really be thankful for the fact they've managed to get out of the camp and to safety. I think the story of Simon has probably been the most heart-breaking and poignant so far, although all of them are really moving. But I think the fact that these characters sort of show lots of different aspects of what was happening to people during the war is really effective, and seeing Sarah, who doesn't seem able to fight back at the moment, is really poignant.

The flashback was, once again, really well placed and well chosen. It was so moving to read about Deborah, and I really can't imagine what it must be like for her to be in a situation where it might be better for your baby to be stillborn rather than born alive, because you fear so much what might happen to it if it lives. It really emphasises how awful the effects of the war are and how fearful and terrified those families were. That just makes it even sadder and more upsetting to read about.

I was definitely not expecting that last part to happen! Grindelwald? I've always wondered if he was part of the reason behind the fighting in the war, since the dates coincide so much; I wonder now if he is behind it, or if the French Ministry is somehow going to try and enlist his help to fight the Muggle war? Either way, I don't think that it can be a good thing that Goldberg's talking to Grindelwald - I don't trust the Minister anyway, let alone when I find out he's in secret and important talks with people like Grindelwald! Although it was a good thing that he wasn't creepy with Astrid because he was trying to remain professional after that...

Another great chapter, lovely!

Sian :)
