Once more, brilliant.

I don't think I've remembered to say before, but your poetry at the beginning is always wonderfully done. I always admire poetry - it slips so easily onto paper for some. Poetry and I have battles and arguments until at last, both looking bloody and beaten, we settle on agreement that it is 'okay enough'. LOL

The beginning and ending of this chapter tied in so well together. You could have put them next to each other and they would have flowed beautifully and I find that to be awesome. You began and ended this chapter on the same note: Marigold's strength.

I love how you have constructed Trip. The Potter's - purebloods before Lily have always been accepting of muggleborns and you have made a great story about WHY. I also love that it wasn't the boy who had the cloak, but first the girl.

The way Marigold thinks almost reminds me of a Slytherin, but I think Ravenclaw was probably interested in her and Slytherin probably had NO interest. It is fascinating to think of where they would have been put if the hat was doing the job.

Stephane pulled through here and made some attempt to 'apologize' you might say, but I can really see where Marigold is coming from - that he can't be trusted.

I can't say enough good things about this story. I am so sad that I only have one more chapter! I will have to find another of your stories to fall in love with.

Author's Response: Hello! :)

Thank you! :) I'm really glad you liked it, the poems were usually the first part of each chapter I wrote so they helped me get in the mindset to write the rest of it. Ah, I know what you mean! I'm not much good at writing real poetry, but as this fit so well with the story it came quite naturally. :)

Marigold's strength is very important, and I'm glad you felt that. Each little chapter in this story has its own purpose, and this chapter was about Marigold's acceptance and, through her, the other children.

You're so clever for having caught onto Trip being a Potter so early! I'm pleased you like Trip. I did think it was a little ironic-in a wonderful way- that the Potter line and name actually originated from Muggles far back in the day. And then Marigold carries on the Peverell blood, even if all her descendants aren't aware of it.

Marigold does have some Slytherin traits, definitely. I imagined that early on, the founders would choose whichever students interested them the most, and Rowena liked Marigold because she saw her as a strong, intelligent young woman. I'm not sure where she would have been Sorted by the hat- she actually has qualities from all four houses, now I think about it- loyalty, bravery, cunning and wit.

Stephane, at least while he's under his father's wing, can't really be trusted. He did try, but sometimes things have just progressed too far to be forgiven. There is some resolution on that in the last chapter, of course! :)

Thank you so much for this wonderful review, and for liking this story! :) It really means so much to me. :D
