I rather think you had fun writing this chapter! And that, of course, makes it fun to read.
First of all, the 'darkness has touched us all' observation is salient and fundamental. It is not over-elaborated; it is just there, and it is true. Secondly, I did smile at the almost offhand mention of Charlie breaking his hand. Not that I wish for violence of pain, but rather it was something you vaguely promised, and you delivered. Finally, in the spirit of a 'single word' making the entire image, I loved the mention of Sirius cursing 'fluently'. On the surface it seems a bit of casual irreverence, a throw-away, but it does more to paint the atmosphere than any writers would achieve in hundreds of words.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed this chapter. Part of what makes Harry and Ginny who they are is the darkness they were exposed to because of Tom and the fact that they chose to survive it. I think that may be part of the reason JKR put them together as a couple. They can understand each other in a way others may not be able to due to their history. As for Charlie breaking his hand, I couldn't resist and am thoroughly impressed you remembered my earlier reference :) Regarding Sirius, though he cursed fluently about the meeting, he may have cause to feel better later on.

Great scene with all those who'd been touched by darkness.

Great to see a new chapter from you - I was starting to get worried! That was quite a meeting of the bonded Weasley couples - alot to discuss indeed! Can't blame Harry for being alittle freaked out about the horcrux that had been within him! However, I would think, between Moldyshorts and his Deathmunchers, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone in the magical world not to mention many muggles who hadn't been touched by evil! Good thing Anna is confident in her bond with Charlie or Kat might have ended up hexed! Will be interesting to see how the bond between Harry and Ginny will develop! Congrats on the Silver Trinket which I voted for- very well deserved! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Great chapter, I just really hope you're not about to put the Kat amongst the pigeons in Anna and Charlie's relationship!
