Ohhhh. Oh no. I ran out of chapters! And it's so good! I hope you're still working on this? Really fantastic story.
Author's Response: Sorry I haven't been checking reviews! Thank you so much for liking this story, it means an incredible amount to me that other people enjoy it. As soon as the server is up again I'll be uploading new chapters. I've written quite far ahead so you can expect somewhat regular updates!

I guess it's nice Theophany was able to pay Severus back by taking care of him. Does a Patronus have to be directed somewhere specific? Was Severus trying to reach Theophany? Or in an emergency does it try to reach just anyone? If you have to send it to a specific person it's interesting that Severus sent it to her.
Author's Response: Yup I intended he send it to Theophany specifically. I mean he's completely alone in this, can't contact the order or anyone. I assume any death eater would rather watch him die, resenting the trust Voldemort placed in him.
The only instance we see in canon of a patronus delivering a message is Lupin's at Bill and Fleur's wedding. I think that's the only one. So we don't know how the spell is done, or how the message is sent, but it was Lupin's voice speaking from his patronus so I assumed a sort of recorded message effect. I chose the incantation "heus" because it's simply a command to listen. And patronuses wouldn't need directions, I feel, as they are made up of intentions. Since they are good memories and will power personified I thought it made sense one merely had to focus the spell on the intended recipient. Should I have explained this more in the text? I'm forever battling stepping outside the narrative to explain stuff, or just going with it and leaving it to you to fill in the gaps :)
