woah, creepy. So, Mundungus is gonna get them all killed. Well, that's just fantastic. I'm glad you're working the mirrors back into the plot. Jo did say they would make another appearance. Snape feeding birds secrets and lies.... I'm sure I don't quite know what that's about. The birds could represent the Order, but.....Oh, I'm not going to bother. I hope you get another chapter posted quickly, so I can stop thinking myself into circles! Haha.

Author's Response: Actually, Phoenix - I will answer you. Don't go too crazy figuring out the imagery in the dream. It really WAS just a plot device. The black goo is secrets and lies. The birds were the "innocents" that were being hurt by them. It was no coincidence that the birds had green eyes - just like Harry. I am not THAT clever, my metaphors were pretty simple! :-)

*gasps* that was a really good chapter, long too! "someone who's very good at nicking stuff" was a major red flag for me. I like the perspective of Hermy dreaming, it shakes things up and makes it more interesting. I know you must get sick of hearing this, but I can't wait for the next chappie! another awesome chapter!

your grateful reader,

Author's Response: DD's Girl - thanks so very much. Yeah, I think to keep the story fresh I wanted to do something a bit different. And the idea of an answer coming in a dream appealed to me. Plus, dreaming sorta IS magical, because strange things can happen in dreams that can't happen in real life. I will update soon, hopefully!

Oooh, the suspense! Ahhhh!

Author's Response: AAAAH. Thanks. This was quite the fun chapter to write, I have to say. And, it had a very clear place to end it. Stay tuned!

NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I just delated my other review and now I have to start all over. Darn. Anyways, that was a fantastic chapter! I love how you wrote it in a very dream like state where nothing ever makes perfect sence. How did Hermione find out that it was Mundungus? I like how you made him the bad guy since most harry potter fans didn't like him in the first place. :) Can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: Well, I think as it is with many clever people - Hermione notices stuff. She puts pieces together that others tend to miss. So, her brain had all these pieces floating around, and this dream was how she figured it out. Mundungus isn't EVIL per se, but he's sure not the most reliable guy in the world...

I'm enjoying the story, nice work. I'm actually really pleased you didn't put it in the different POV's...the third-person-omnicient stays more true to the books.

Author's Response: Oh, no! It IS in rotating POV's, just not in the first person. Hopefully you will still keep reading anyway. Thanks for reviewing!

Wow, what a dream! The descriptions were amazing. So Mundungus...I always suspected he was only out for himself and wouldn't hesitate to switch sides if it suited his needs. Interesting black liquid....Draught of Living Death? Great job! Can't wait for more.

Author's Response: Thanks so much! Yes, well, everything in the dream was a metaphor (you know how wacky dreams can be!) The icky black stuff was secrets...people keeping secrets. And how they can hurt the innocent (represented by the birds).

Oh Wow! Oh Wow! I am too old to go KEWL like my son does when he really likes something?!?! LOL To be honest, at first I wasn't sure where the chapter was going, seemed a bit strange but as I read on the more awake side of my brain realized that is how it is in dreams. As always, wonderful visual images you give the reader. The two way mirrors! Love that you are using that and yes, Mundungus would have taken them if he found them there since we already know he was knicking all the silver he could find! It was a very good chapter again. Take care and have a wonderful holiday season. Living in New York I bet the sights are amazing. If you don't have a chance to update before before Christmas - this time of year I barely have a sec to myself - I hope you have a very merry one and a wonderful New Year. Sara

Author's Response: Thanks Sara! I wouldn't want to throw off one of my favorite or most loyal readers/reviewers. Yes, NYC at Christmas is really beautiful. I am hoping to sneak in one more chapter before Santa Claus comes to town...but, I hope you and your family have a WONDERFUL holiday! ~ Colleen

omg i knew he was a crook but i didn't think he was that bad ! ! ! i never really liked him great chapter fab work

Author's Response: Well, we don't know that he's "bad" just opportunistic. I mean, remember? he got tossed into Azkaban in the middle of HBP - maybe he worked a deal with the Ministry to get himself released early...

I should have realized, the sneaky richard-cranium.

Author's Response: Hehehe. Yes, well, Dung seems to have fallen down on the job again, right?

Grrr! I get an email saying the story is updated and then I can't view it! Oh well I am sure it is a wonderful chapter and I will have to wait. Have you read Mapping the World of Harry Potter? I just did and thought it had some interesting insights on the books if you wanted to check it out. Also have you seen the trailer for movie 5? It seems like it will be following the book closer than the last two movies. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and the chapter should be validated soon! Take care! Sara

Author's Response: Hey Sara! Yes, like you, I get an email saying that my chapter has been approved - but usually, it takes another half-day or so for it actually to be accessible to everyone. I haven't read Mapping the World of HP, I think I might have to look into it in my "spare time". :-) I had a great Turkey Day and hope you did too! Looking forward to the Christmas season...nothing like Christmas in New York! ~ Colleen

I like this story a lot. It captures your attention from the first sentence and keeps it through the entire story.

Author's Response: Oh thank so much for reading and reviewing. I love hearing from people and what they like and don't like about the story!

I really enjoyed this cahpter. I had already read it right after it came out but I just read it again and I must have missed the part about Fred saying that Hermione would be a Weasley one day. I just love that...how you put it in was perfect and it ws just really sweet. Anyways, I hope they next chapter gets through quick!

Author's Response: Oh thank you - I love the "little" things in reading and writing. The tiny details that makes the characters seem more real. They are fun to read and write. The next chapter - me too!! Hopefully this week!

Oh my gosh! I am soooo happy. I just figured out how to leave reviews!! I finally got a penname and now can tell you what I've wanted to say from chapter one. I absolutely love your story! It is my favorite fanfiction! The way you blend romance and adventure is very compelling. What makes you think Snape is inocent? How can you justify him killing Dumbledore? Can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: I think Snape is well, to use your word, "innocent" or rather, a decent person, because of the tiny clues JKR hereself has left us - Snape has had many opportunities to kill Harry, and hasn't used them. Also, I just re-read the first few chapters of HBP (author's reasearch, hehehe) and JKR really presents Snape as thinking on his feet - I think he entered into the Unbreakable Vow with Malfoy's mother w/o knowing exactly what the deal was. Then he HAD to follow through. Plus, Dumbledore trusted him. And Dumbledore is usually right! :-)

Ooooh, fun fun!! Can't wait to read it!! Why do I always review before the chapter is validated?? :D

Author's Response: Tradition! ;-) Thanks for being so excited for each new chapter. This one should be up soon!

Reading your tale has really been like reading a real HPbook.
I cant wait for it to continue so PLEASE hurry up.

Author's Response: Oh thank you so so much. There's a new chapter in the queue - I know that MNFF took the weekend off for Thanksgiving, but the new chappie should appear this week! ~ Your Author

ohh, good luck! hope you do well! *crosses fingers* so I'll check back in a couple o' days?

Author's Response: D's Girl - thanks so much - I am working on the next chapter right now, I hope to have it finished today or tomorrow (Tuesday). And my plan is to stick it in the queue ASAP. It's a long one, so it's taking a bit of time!

WOW!! I just read this! I can not wait for more!! Great Job so far!

Author's Response: Thanks so much -- and a note to all my readers who loyally check for updates - for those of you that don't know, I am also a singer, and I have a performance this weekend. I have been in rehearsal PLUS my day job all week, so I will update when this show is over! That's a promise! ~ Your (Busy) Author
