The opening to this chapter... with the difference in the names... oh that tore me apart right there. This little boy feels so manipulated, and to have that fear that he's not even allowed to feel things, that's really sad.

I am very impressed with the way that Devlin's mother approaches the situation. She seems to have some instinctive understanding of how to get him to at least hear her out. All children are drawn into a story. I love how you did that.

"Geoffrey's eyes were empty too and he had never seen eyes like that before on someone who was alive."

These descriptions from Devlin's point of view are just fantastic. They are so child-like and frank. He can only understand what he's been shown, and the way that you show us what he's been shown through how he describes things is brilliant. And sad.

The recognition that Geoffrey has of Remus leads me to believe it has something to do with werewolves. Interesting... and oh no, Remus! What a horrific revelation!

And the whole Crucio victim thing is so horrible, but at least they have a potion for that. Does this mean that Devlin knows how to brew potions? You're using this wolf thing in a unique way, partially to protect Devlin from outside things, and also it seems that the wolf is protecting him from himself in a way. I have a feeling that his wolf will have a big part in this story. I am very excited about this!

Another fascinating chapter! There are so many dynamics here to explore, so many broken relationships, so much conflict!

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked the opening. :)

"He can only understand what he's been shown, and the way that you show us what he's been shown through how he describes things is brilliant. And sad." Thank you. A couple people have said to me that a child wouldn't understand things like that or wouldn't notice those things - but Devlin has seen those things more than he's seen comforting or heard kind words.

Re: Remus: Didn't see that coming, did ya? :D

Devlin knows how to brew THIS potion. He's not all-powerful, but children with medical issues are usually very informed about their issue - not necessary about all medical issues.

His wolf will definitely be important to the story.

Thank you for the great review!
