Thank goodness Isobel has noticed Laurel's overdependency on charms. And after that DADA class, I'm worried something really serious is going to happen to Laurel.

Isobel's eating disorder is getting worse than I thought, too. But who is going to look out for her, since she is the one who really looks after people in a mum-like way? Everyone is too caught up in their own problems/feeling sorry for themselves. Wow, this chapter is really showing how none of them can keep going as they are, and they're headed for a crash.

Oh goodness, and there's the crash. That was such an eerie scene, like I'd seen it coming but still wasn't sure what to expect. Now I'm wondering if they're going to change any of their behaviour at all, if Laurel's situation will serve as a wake up call to them... but sadly I get the feeling it may take more than that.

Also, I was pleasantly surprised by Snape at the end. I think he actually helped by not drawing any attention to what happened in a time when they're all in the spotlight.

it's really late at night and I want to keep reading but I worry about what kind of gibberish I would be leaving as a review, so maybe I'll be back tomorrow haha.

House Cup Review 2014

Author's Response: What you said about Isobel's eating disorder is 100% on point. Unfortunately, she really doesn't have anyone around who's properly equipped to deal with it :(.

I'm really glad that scene came off as "eerie." I researched overdose warning signs for some of the details (shallow breathing/stopping breathing, fingernails turning blue, etc). It was cool to be able to add those real-life details, but also be able to invent some other creepy details (eyes open, strangled smile).

And oh yes, I adore Snape! I wanted to let him have a little good-guy moment in there. He could hardly be described as professional, yet he has his moments (remember him and Umbridge? That was some of the craziest character interplay!)

Thank you so much for more fantastic reviews!
