I currently live in the great state of South Dakota. Why do I live in a place with such nasty winters, I don't know. Since most of my family lives far away in more exotic places than I do, my life revolves around my four dogs, Sampson, Raphael, Seamus, and Mayhem. They are a min-pin, a toy poodle, a teacup Malti-Poo, and a Great Dane, respectively.
I've always had a fascination with the mental illness aspect that characterizes Bellatrix Black Lestrange. My first story is her story. On one site I was sorted into Ravenclaw but I think the hat made a mistake. Most days I feel like a Slytherin!
That was a very exciting chapter. If I were Remus I'd really want to talk to my Dad even more now. So, is Kane saying he's the one who bit Remus? And, what does Remus' Dad have to do with it? Kane's not some wayward uncle is he? This will be fun to find out.
I loved how Poppy took care of Dawlish. I hope Remus' Dad answers some of Remus' question.
Remus and Tonks seem to be getting along well. I love Tonks. She may be clumsy but she's witty and funny. She's probably the one person who can make Remus smile.
I hope Remus gets answers to his questions. I can't wait to hear the story. What did his father take from Kane?
I can see why Remus' father had a poor opinion of werewolves and why it was possible for him to have odd feelings toward Remus.
I can't wait to find out how Kane knew Rey's name. This is all very interesting. Those ferals sound like nasty characters. I take it Rey didn't get his family to safety in time.
I was feeling about as panicked as Rey did. And yes, I would've assumed the worst. Maybe he should just tell them to stay at Hogwarts and not come back for the night.
That was certainly exciting. I didn't realize there would be such an interesting relationship behind the family ties title. Kane must be delusional. Rey had nothing to do with Kane's father's suicide. But if he's delusional that won't make any difference.
I'm glad Harry is able to put his memories into a pensieve and sleep better. And I'm glad they're reforming the DA, legally this time. Great chapter.
I was afraid for a minute that Harry would be a gentleman and let Cho have the snitch--but I guess all's fair in quidditch. I liked Dumbledore's approach to legilimency--much trickier. Great chapter.
I don't understand why everyone was getting so angry at Harry. Basically, Ellie just blurted out that Halloween was the anniversary of his parents' deaths. He had every right to be upset. Great chapter.
Well, that wasn't as bad as I expected. That would make Harry and Ellie cousins. I know I can be really dense sometimes, but I don't see why this is a problem, other than that Ellie and everybody else neglected to tell Harry that he had a cousin. Great chapter.
That does explain why this book is called The Girl Who Lived. I guess I just kind of went along and trusted that it would all be explained in time. Excellent chapter.
For some reason I really like Howlers--I just like the concept and when someone receives one I think it's kind of funny. So, that being said, I like the concept of the opposite of a Howler almost better. Excellent chapter. But, I'm wondering what's going to go wrong for Harry.
Wow--the Weasleys narrowly escaped. But, when did the Weasleys leave the Burrow? They said they hadn't been there for months. This reminds me of a scene from HBP when Death Eaters started the Burrow on fire. Excellent chapter.
I didn't think it was too bad of a song. Didn't JKR herself write "Weasley is Our King?" It seems as if Ellie has some sort of mental connection with Harry. Great chapter.
Poor Severus--How did he ever get involved with the two women who married Potter men and then become indebted to them. You have to wonder why he did this to himself. Great chapter.
That was wonderful. I always like reading about Christmas balls. I agree that the world needs a little madness as long as it's happy, creative madness. Great chapter.
I love Dobby. He's too adorable. I want a Dobby. I think you've done a marvelous job on describing Dobby's personality. Great chapter. Loved it.
Well, I sure am feeling all warm and fuzzy and somewhat contemplative. I know why Harry had to stay with the Dursleys but he would've been so much happier with the Weasleys. It's strange how life is at times. Great chapter.
