Hello! :)

Ah, this chapter was so exciting! It was truly fascinating to see Devlin at Hogwarts and his reactions to both the curses and the Slytherins.

I find Dumbledore quite interesting here. I love how you've characterized him as less all-powerful as he seems to Harry in the books, but how he has faults and shortcomings as well and how he's willing to use people to get the desired results. Seeing Harrys stand up to him about Devlin was really interesting, and their relationship is very dynamic here. I love it.

You did an amazing job with putting all the background explanations into the unforgivable curses. I liked how detailed it was - like how the imperius curse can be thrown off, and to what extent the cruciatus curse can drive a person mad, and how the killing curse can't be blocked by magic. Also how an Auror had to be present for the curses to be legal. That's fascinating, and even though it is explained to an extent in the books, I really appreciate how you take the time to outline these concepts and make them very precise and carefully defined. It shows how much work you've put into the story. :)

I'm so curious about the rat! At first, I was convinced it was Peter, but I didn't think they would just kill him like that. Harry is still law-abiding (I mean, he is an Auror!) so I don't think he would just kill Peter like that without a trial and such. So now I'm guessing that he transfigured the coin into a rat missing a toe because it reminded him of Peter and gave them the strength to want to perform those curses on the poor thing. Very interesting. I like how Harry and the other characters come across as so dark and hardened when it is needed.

The idea of the Slytherin children knowing about Devlin and even spying on him for Voldemort was chilling. The fact that Voldy would look inside their minds and see their memories of Devlin and gauge things about him that way was even more sinister. I quite liked reading Devlin's understanding of them as threats and spies.

It's so interesting - I was sure the Cruciatus curse would affect Devlin negatively, but then he explained how he had seen far worse things. That makes perfect sense. I like how he's more frightened and bothered by the Slytherins taking news of his submission back to Voldy than any curses that could be done. I'm quite worried for Devlin now as well, and how Voldemort is going to punish him if they are reunited - which I feel is eventually inevitable.

This was a brilliant chapter, as usual - I loved it, and I'm sure I'll be back for the next one soon! :D This is one of those stories which I'm so content to read slowly - not because I'm not dying to find out what happens next, but because each thought and idea is so powerful and intricate that it's so brilliant to let it sink in and really think about it. I feel like every word means something and is carefully chosen. You're an amazing writer. :)

Also - LOVE the new banner! :)
