Well done, as always!
I think the most interesting part was offering object lessons from the practice duel, and being able to produce wisdom that I haven't heard elsewhere in fanfic. Although Rowling actually discussed remarkably little of the dueling practice (the episode in CoS was an intriguing primer, but was far more geared to advancing non-duel plot points), she painted the rough outlines of a rather fascinating mode of engagement. Potentially even chess-like in its deceptive complexity.
Anyway, today I believe I have the time to notch another chapter of this story, so more anon!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I actually researched dueling practices (what I could find about Rowling's thoughts on the subject, as well as the history of fencing and pistol dueling in Britain) prior to writing this chapter. It was extremely fascinating!

Well at least for Harry's sake she did not get the knife this time around :-)

I know I haven't reviewed your story but I do love it. I know you can't go over the talk because of rating issues but I'd like to know what the boy's reaction to the talk was after Sirius and Remus left. Will Harry also be taking windless lessons?

Will Amortentia help Anna with her decision? She'll barely have a chance to see Charlie to get to know how he smells, and she haven't seen him much in the past to remember...We will see...

I laughed when Tonks gave Anna the option to go and share the talk with "the boys".

Well love makes the world go round and this chapter sure had a wicked turn! Really enjoyed the amortentia bit -- Harry obviously was smelling reminders of Ginny and I'd bet a galleon that what Anna was smelling sounds a lot like a description of Charlie! (wink wink) Remus is certainly protective of Anna and needs to be! Hate that she is still clearly suffering from what Dorko tried to do to her and that Harry suffered an unfortunate by-product! (I think a lot of us readers would like to see you make that unfortunate accident happen to Dorko -- hint hint)! Would love to have been a fly on the wall during the boys' sex talk with Sirius and Remus- had to have been a classic! Brought back memories of when I did the deed with my daughter and my two sons (yes, I handled my daughter's too which says a lot about why I'm no longer married to her mother)! Looking forward to the next one! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Simply marvellous! I must start by apologising for completely forgetting to review the last few chapters - I have been reading as soon as they've been online though.
