Review #2, by nott theodore 

16th August 2014:

Wah, I can't believe that I've caught up only to be left on a cliffhanger like this and now I'm absolutely terrified and struggling to form a coherent review because what are you doing to me with this story! Although I will try my best because this was an amazing chapter and it deserves a semi-coherent review!

I felt so sorry for Tor in this chapter! I thought you did a brilliant job of capturing the sort of boredom and neglect she's feeling at home when her parents are basically treating her as a nuisance. It must be so horrible to be cut off from all of her friends at home and not even know whether or not she's going to hear back from them. And she doesn't even know whether or not she's going to get a tutor soon, so there's a lot of uncertainty about minor things in her life, without even coming to the issue of Terry. And they seem to blame her for what they had to do about the Snatchers who were at Malfoy Manor too, which feels unfair.

Selena really didn't seem to care much about the fact that Tor was feeling upset and lonely - it isn't fair the way that she favours Daphne so much. And now that Yaxley's so stressed and worried about what's going on with the Death Eaters, it's only natural she feels abandoned a bit. But at least they seem to have bought the story that she was writing to Taurus rather than Terry or a Ravenclaw that they've heard about. So their secret seems a bit safer for now, until the ending!

The fact that someone was trying to break into the wards... I wonder if it was actually Terry, trying to get to Tor? If so, it makes me even more worried that he's got a reason to come and try and find her other than maybe just wanting to see her, and that might be the reason that he turns up at Malfoy Manor too...

I wanted to shout at her parents for getting rid of her to Malfoy Manor, and on her birthday too! And Draco started off being horrible but it was nice to see the scene with the two of them and the way that he tried to warn her to some extent of what she should expect. It's a real worry and possibility that they might try and induct Tor to the Death Eaters now and I hope they don't, because she's so young and it would be absolutely awful to see her forced into doing something like that. But the chance to see the scene between them, and the way that Draco was kind of looking out for her, was sweet. It was really interesting to see his opinions on the way that Draco thinks they attract new members to the Death Eater ranks too, and the fact that he'd share it with Tor shows that he does trust her - at least, I think it does.

Oh my goodness, I can't believe that final scene! Even though I've read it before right back at the beginning of this story, a whole forty chapters ago, it was still terrifying. Even more so, I think, because we know now how sweet Terry is but also how much he means to Tor. It was petrifying to read the interrogation and see it again through Tor's eyes now that we know all that's happened between them - my heart was actually racing. I'm so, so worried for them now and I can understand why Tor would deny knowing him, because in a way I think they would be more dangerous if they knew about the relationship there was between them - they'd blame him for polluting her thoughts, or something like that. It's so scary to think that they might be found out and I'm just hoping that Terry and Tor will manage to get through this unharmed.

I'm so nervous for the next chapter but looking forward to it as well. I just really hope that Terry doesn't die or something awful like that because I want to see more of the two of them together and I'm not ready for something so terrible to happen! I know that there's going to be at least two deaths in the next six months or so, and I'm just so nervous. But this was a brilliant chapter and I'm looking forward to the next one now that I've finally caught up on this too, although it is with a bit of trepidation!

(Also it's a bit late but I just wanted to say congratulations for getting so far with this story and having written something so brilliant!)

Sian :)

Review #3, by marauderfan

Oh wow we're back to the beginning. I'm terrified for what is coming next, because I know Tor doesn't end up with Terry eventually, and so I'm scared you're going to have him killed off at any moment.

The strain of Yaxley's job and position in the Death Eaters and maintaining his good name is clearly getting to be too much for him as he and Selena are both treating Tor as merely a nuisance. They want to protect her for her own good, but at the moment I think their primary motivations are selfish reasons, so they can control what of the war she is exposed to.

Excellent chapter! I have a feeling it's quite near the end now and the suspense is like extra intense now as it's been there since the beginning for this part. Keep up the great work!

Author's Response: Hey hey!!

Yes! Ahh, I was so excited to post this chapter and reading your reactions really meant so much (both now and when I first read this review). I'm glad you were worried about what was going to happen as I was really looking forward to toying with the suspense a bit. :P

It really is getting to them, and they're very upset with Tor - and from their POV, for good reason! They're realizing that she's changed and she's not obedient anymore, which means they can't keep her safe in their controlling, brain-washed way. You're just right about how they want to control what she sees and thinks of the war.

Ah, I love the suspense! :D

Thanks so much for another lovely review! ♥
