There's definitely a lot more mystery in this chapter!

The way that Bree reacts to Harry's tone seemed professional, but a bit stilted, which leads me to believe that she can't entirely be trusted. I am quite suspicious of her. It really surprised me that she uses Legilimency in her sessions as a type of therapy. I can see how it would be beneficial, but it sounds so invasive. *is still very suspicious*

I liked the way you portrayed Ginny's nightmare. It felt very real, and I was almost convinced that it *was* real, up until she woke up. Quite terrifying, indeed! Looking over your shoulder and having Voldemort right there... *shudders*

Ginny's automatic denial in the morning was sad, but expected. She still wants to believe that she can handle this without anyone's help. Her guilty thoughts about Voldemort were interesting to read, and believable. The addiction she must have experienced when under Voldemort's influence must have been extremely powerful and alluring. And then afterwards, the remorse, but also the knowing that she had been powerless at the time to resist it. I liked the way you described what she was thinking. It gave me a better sense of where she was coming from, and made her inner conflict deeper than simply not wanting to bother Harry with her problems.

I'm happy to see Harry taking a more active role in Ginny's condition and accompanying her to a session. He came across as understanding and protective, but at the same time he wasn't going to allow Ginny to back out of the plans.

And oh, the twist at the end was nice and twisty! I can't wait to see what you do with all of this!

Author's Response: Oh, poor Bree. Girl can't catch a break! Haha.

I think of Legilimency as being a bit like exposure therapy (with a magical twist, of course). When you first introduce the idea to a client, they're positively revolted and want to run right back out the door. However, it's scientifically supported and it can change your life. It's interesting to think about ideas and concepts I use every day in a setting with magical elements.

Glad the nightmare worked well!

Yeah, Ginny still isn't ready to relinquish control and admit that she can't handle all this on her own. It's so fascinating to explore her complex emotions and think about the horror of what she really went through. The fact that she was even able to stay in school, develop a career, get married and have a family are just amazing to me. It was like she barely allowed it to hold her back.

Harry is going to take a bigger role in Ginny's treatment from here on out. I'm glad to see him at least trying to offer support.

Thanks for your awesome review!
