Once again, I think you did a really great job capturing the mood of the song. I don't want to read the next chapter because it'll probably be sad.

I love that the music is in her head. Is that what you meant? That's awesome.

I feel so terrible for her that her parents are dead. I loved the line, though, that she was burned for practising magic and he was burned for loving her.

I like how even though she's shy and young, she stood up for what she believed in. Very Hufflepuffy.

I chuckled a little bit when you mentioned the dissonance. Did you listen to the version that's got all the movements together, with a picture of Milhaud? That's 17 minutes and 44 seconds long? Recorded by the PLU wind ensemble? If you did, then on the last note, one of the trumpets played a very very wrong note. If that's what you were referring to, that's just humorous to me because it shows how much music can be interpreted differently. Since I know that it's a wrong note, I cringe heavily. But then you brought it into the story

Sorry. I went off on a little tangent there.

Overall, once again, I really enjoyed reading this. Your writing style is a pleasure to read and each of the chapters is very distinct.

Author's Response: Thank you for another lovely review! :D

Yes, I did mean that "Ile de France" is the song that's in her head. I wanted to have at least one character hearing the music. :)

Helga Hufflepuff is such a sweetheart. I would like to think that her parents' love influenced her a lot--much like Salazar's father influenced him, but with a very different outcome. :)

Badgers are stalwart and awesome, as evidenced by the Redwall books. I read those a lot while I was growing up, and since Hufflepuff's mascot is a badger, I can't help but thinking of them all as the stubborn ones of the bunch. :)

Lol! No, that's not the one I listened to. I found it on Spotify and also bought it on iTunes because I was writing it while I was on an eight-hour band trip (ironic, huh?). The dissonance mention was merely coincidental, as I wanted to portray the tension that Helga could feel between Salazar and the others. :D

Tangents are good! I am also tangential. Tangent away!

Thanks so much, once again!
