Back for more!

I still love the way that Devlin reacts to things. I can get a lot of information about what he's been through just by observing how he observes the things around him. He's so careful, so calculating, and it makes me sad to see him this way. Sigh.

The things he picks up on in Emma are chilling to me. Emma and his mother too. He's hinting at a secret, something he doesn't just want to tell them, but something he's deathly afraid of having them find out. I wonder what it is, and if he's going to ever be brave enough to voice it to them, or if they're going to find out in an unhappy accident, which I can totally see this story going for... because of all the dark, you know. :) That line about his grandfather "promising" something... that gave me the creeps right there. What in the world would Voldemort promise to a young boy. And why?? Now my head is spinning with possibilities.

I like how Devlin acts his age, impatient and frustrated, and obviously using the mannerisms of a mad man to get his point across. It's not just that he seems accustomed to people letting him have his way, but that he's mimicked the behavior of someone in control. It's an interesting dynamic, unfortunate habits too, and it leaves me with questions about whether he's going to be able to fully integrate into this family any time soon. My guess is, probably not for a long while. He's been through so much for so long.

Oooh, and you bring Draco into it now! I forgot that he was responsible in the beginning. How interesting that he's on the hunt for him again, and apparently not loving it.

Devlin's quick conversation with Harry in front of Kingsley leads me to believe that he does care a great deal about Geoffrey, even though he pretends not to. I'm not even sure at this point that Devlin even realizes that he cares. He's probably thinking that he's not supposed to care, because that would lead to more trouble. Another sigh. Poor boy!

Oh! Devlin can CHANGE! Well, that's a fascinating development. And cute, with the dog and all. And then REMUS! Devlin notices something about him immediately, and I can only guess that it's what Geoffrey noticed the first time he met him. Who else is Harry going to turn to but Remus and Sirius. If anyone can handle the boy, it would be them. Devlin doesn't seem to like them much, maybe because he can't manipulate them like he'd been able to do with the others... maybe because they don't regard him as something to be in awe of or in fear of. He just doesn't get them at all.

I love the feature in your writing where Devlin repeats the "knowing and not knowing", almost like a litany. He wants so badly to understand, but he seems so afraid of what he might learn, that he won't be able to handle it... probably because the things he learned from Voldemort must have been terrible, awful things... I just can't stop thinking about that.

Another stunning chapter! Until next time!
