Oh no, Hogwarts is under attack yet again!
Firstly I wanted to tell you using Luna and the adults' conversation to tell Violet about her parents, from two perspectives, is brilliant! From the eavesdropping, she heard what people really thought of her parents and understood the shame or regret they may feel. From Luna, she gets Luna's unfalteringly fair judgement of people and sympathy and the understanding voice she needed to hear.
I'm scared for the Hogwarts occupants! I hope you didn't let someone else get seriously hurt! *YIKES*
I love the characterization of Luna! can't wait to find out what happens next..
AHHH how could you stop there! Anyway, congratulations on your amazing story! I really enjoy reading it, there is a new twist in every chapter. I definently like Violet but i think that Kai is my favorite character, and you don't really hear all that much about Dewey. Teddy is a really good character but i always forget that he is Remus's and Tonks' son. I keep thinking he's Harry's. But anyway, congrats again! I can't wait for the next chapter.
Wooooow.... quite the twist there.
ahh ahh ahh! ahh!
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! another war at hogwarts can't wait to see how it goes please hurry with the next chpater.
Yeah, Andromeda definitely has the benefit of prior experience. :-}
I'm mildly surprised that Teddy appears to know the word "pogrom."
Interesting chat between Prof. Longbottom & Teddy, there.
I absolutely love the stpry and characters/relationships you're developing here, it is all so unbelieveably realistic, and for the most part in character, and canon-compliant, while at the same time being a completely new take. I really like how Violet and Teddy are cousins, and good friends as well, and both seemingly care about each other despite the house they were sorted in. Its really quite sweet--and makes for great story advancement, as well. I hope you get the rest up and validated as soon as possible. Consider this favorited, and I want to thank you for helping me get my mind off my own rough patch (where i happen to be stuck on) in my own story. You rock!
Yay, you updated! You just made my day. I love how all the D.A. brought muggle stuff to Hogwarts. And Violet, buying a bike! I wonder if they'll end up doing anything with it? Keep writing!
Wait... how is Victoire Teddy's cousin? Heck, how are *any* of the Weasleys Teddy's cousins? He's not related by blood to any of them; the closest thing is that he's Harry's godson.
Author's Response: Teddy and Victoire actually are fourth cousins, once removed, through Phineas Nigellus Black. But the "cousin" label is really more of an informal one; the Weasleys think of Teddy as a cousin, even if he's only very distantly a blood relation.
This is a really good story! My favorite part is how you made me strongly dislike, if only for a moment, characters I have grown to love (i.e. Neville, Harry, etc.) without making them be crazy unreasonable and making them do things they would REALLY never do. I can't wait to see what happens next!
good chapter! i love the ending. i can't wait to see the anniversary memorial service; update soon!
Your writing is truly amazing. You develop the characters marvelously and all this within the confines of cannon compliance; I can hardly wait for the next chapter.
By the way, for the first few chapters, as we were discovering the main 10 characters, it was quite confusing, and I was initially tempted (around chapter 4) to drop following the story, but I am glad that I didn't; shortly afterwards you got me hooked. I think that a little who-is-who reference page might be useful. After all, inter-house friendships aren't easy to keep track of.
Yes, there are a lot of characters! I tried not to introduce the whole cast at once, but since I am now very familiar with all of them in my own mind, it may be more difficult for me to see where readers might be getting lost. I actually use a private wiki to keep track of all the characters and class schedules and things. But I can't make it public, because it would contain spoilers! If I write a sequel, though, I may post some sort of roster or cast list. Thanks!
Watch out for the Muggle Artifacts invasion! :-)
Brilliant chapter, I love little Victoire.
Great chapter. Keep it up.
Nice job on showing Violet's fear for Kai's health.
Oh wow! What a chapter!!! I loved the part where the house elves were tricked into not working :-)
Loved it! :-)
Two thumbs way way up for this chapter!
