Hello!

Sweet Emma seems to bring out the best in Devlin, really. He's completely unperturbed by her, given her innocence, and he doesn't have to put up all of those protective walls of his. I think he plays the role of a brother very nicely, despite everything he's been through.

Oh Devlin. His remark to Harry -- claiming that he did not give permission for Harry to leave, and that he should have waited -- sounded awfully close to Devlin not wanting Harry to abandon him. And, if I'm not mistaken, Harry caught that. Devlin's always a curious one, it feels like by commenting that he also has scars that he is, in his own way, searching for commonalities between Harry and himself.

"If I promise not to run away, can Emma go dancing?" --How absolutely endearing is that? My goodness, if anything can cause Devlin to make some progress, it will be Emma. He wants to make her happy, and that just gives me some serious feels (but good feels). Yet, still, he continues to convince himself that the primary purpose of behaving properly (in other words, not running away) is to get his wand back. While that's a very strong motivator, I think I'm seeing some progress in Devlin here.

I hate it when somebody is staring at me/the paper when I'm attempting to write *anything*. If I were Devlin, I would be supremely annoyed. I don't think I've said much about Alex, previously. Something about the way she promised that she'd make Devlin be alright, eventually, really made her stand out in this chapter.

Oh goodness, I laughed when Emma called Snape "the mean man". Well, yes, I'd imagine Snape's abrasive personality would come across that way...especially to a little girl. Devlin's mild confusion as Emma flung the blankets over her head in order to give him some privacy was also very humorous.

The lingering comment of Devlin actually meaning that he would protect Emma while Harry's same comments weren't truthful is a sharp, stabbing thought in the back of my mind. I suppose that Devlin still doesn't trust Harry.

Devlin and Snape...their personalities are fabulous when brought together.

Another wonderful chapter! Oh, and also in regards to one of my previous comments: the story being intense was definitely meant as a compliment :D.

Thanks for the swap!
