Review:Violet Gryfindor says:
Excellent chapter! You've increased the suspense and continued the action wonderfully. I've enjoyed the hints about Ophelia, and I'm in wonder that Scorpius is so convinced that she's real, despite the fact that no one else seems to see her. Is she a ghost or malevolent spirit? Or is she, even worse, a projection of Scorpius's mind, a version of himself who isn't afraid, who dares him to do more - his own Tyler Durden. It's fantastic to see how you write this style of story with its combination of psychological suspense and horror. It makes this story stand out from others that I've been reading - it's the kind of story that has you guessing and second-guessing the whole way through.

This is one of those chapters that makes me go asdfghjkl afterwards because I want to leap into the story and make the main character do the right thing. That's a good feeling to have when reading, though, as it demonstrates how well the author has brought the story to life - your characters are especially realistic. Scorpius is amazingly written, his confusion and frustration at times overwhelming, yet perfectly suited to someone of his age and situation. He reminds me of both Harry and Snape, who also underwent terrible experiences with their peers, and like Scorpius, they both reacted terribly at times, resorting to violence without fully comprehending the consequences and the danger of it. I think that's why McGonagall showed understanding for what Scorpius had done - it was a great parallel with Harry's use of Sectumsempra. It came from the same kind of feelings Harry was undergoing, his hatred for this enemy, someone who had been bullying him (though certainly not to the same extent that Ismeme has been bullying Scorpius). Yet even though Ismeme really is a terrible person, I loved how Scorpius felt absolutely terrible about what he'd done to her. It not only emphasizes that he's still a good person, but it also shows how he understands (at least to a certain degree) that, no matter how badly she's treated him, she doesn't deserve that kind of punishment, that kind of torture. That curse is awful - it even sounds worse than Crucio.

But what's going to happen next is the big question? How will people react to Scorpius's changing behaviour? What will Scorpius do about Ophelia - will he continue to follow her influence, or will this be enough for him to cut himself off from her? And if he does succeed at fighting her influence, what will she do to him? There are so many questions! :D I'll be on the lookout for the next chapter! Amazing work!
