Wonderful story, and I really like the ending. Hopefully, Ron will return eventually as a better person. I am glad that you did not allow Sirius to fall through the veil. He is a fabulous character and so important to Harry.

Christmas at the Burrow. Great chapter. I am glad that Percy and Audrey are reconnecting with the family, and now that Hermione is more in the know, hopefully they can make progress with the Horcrux hunt. Poor Hagrid unwittingly causing distress, and now what is Albus up to.

Another interesting chapter. Looking forward to reading the next part of the story. I am also wondering who you will pair Hermione with. I have a hope, so I am eager to see your choice.

Wow, Ginny has a rather vicious streak, though of course it is true that the best defense is a good offense. The first meeting of the defense club was certainly interesting. Draco being incapable of a real duel was not exactly surprising. I am glad that Harry and Ginny had some quality time together at the end.

Ron being this evil and horrible is almost too much of a character shift. Could he possibly be under an Imperius Curse? The conversation between Harry and Albus was very well written. Thank goodness Harry has his little harem of witches.

Ginny was very sweet with Hermione's parents. She is quite confident and articulate in this story. I really hope that things go well with Eva and Sirius. He clearly needs a woman in his life and she's apparently very willing.

Oh no, Molly. This was not a good idea. Arthur and Albus should have thought better of this as well. I certainly hope a moment of clarity and improvement will happen to Ron eventually. He definitely needs one. Loved the scene between Sirius and Eva, which rather makes me think that your writing is a corrupting influence, no insult intended.

Great move getting Percy as their spy in the Ministry. They don't know what they are facing with Dolores as a teacher. The professor that I truly never understood was History of Magic. Albus at least had a purpose in keeping Severus and Trelawney about, but why a ghost?
Reviewer: MollyandArthur Signed Date: 2015.12.29 - 10:14PM Title: Chapter 4 The Pain Within
Powerful, disturbing, well written chapter. The facts of Harry's childhood with the Dursleys has always been a bit of a mystery. As readers, we always knew it was bad, but the question was how bad. Ginny being the one to hear and help was a good idea.

Poor Rita. If ever a bug deserved to be squashed, it was definitely her. Sirius should certainly be very suspicious of Harry being able to hide the body so easily. I am glad that Tonks is on board with helping Harry and Ginny as much as possible. Great story.

Excellent chapter. Sirius as a responsible parental figure is quite interesting. I am glad that Occlumency training is a top priority for them. With all of the information that Ginny has revealed, keeping secrets is vital to all of their continued survival. Looking forward to the next chapter.

Awesome first chapter. I really enjoyed the interaction between Sirius and Molly. Poor Harry learning about Horcruxes in general and that he is one specifically. Ginny is wonderfully pragmatic in this story.

Can appreciate what a challenge this chapter must have been. Yet, you wound up with a beautiful one...

Great chapter and a lot happened. I was not expecting the but Sirius squashed in the last chapter to be Rita! I thought it was some trick Ginny had pulled to drug him so she could slip into Harry's room after curfew. Speaking of, I know we already had a conversation about Harry and Ginny's ages and how quickly their relationship seems to be progressing, but I am still having a hard time wrapping my mind around their activities. I guess I'm a fuddie-duddie:) The dueling scenes were fun to read and again I am always impressed with how easily you are able to portray these action sequences. Glad to see Tonks is on board, but there are A LOT of Unbreakable Vows being made! That's a dangerous undertaking, I hope nothing bad comes of it.

I'm glad to finally be able to read this again! I do have to nag as you poked fun at two of my fav stories and the ways Harry's Horcrux was dealt with, but you did warn us, so I guess you are forgiven. Also, Harry certainly recovered rather quickly from the news that he has a piece of Voldemort's soul within him. However, I really enjoyed this chapter, especially your portrayal of Sirius, and glad he will be appearing quite regularly in this story. Looking forward to more!

Oh, how could you? Poor Harry. Just when he feels he is getting his life in order, has an amazing godfather, new duds, new digs, and then you pull the rug completely out from under him. And his gorgeous girlfriend had to deliver the awful news? That being said, great chapter! I loved how Ginnu kept reading his letter over and over again. Also glad you addressed the very un-Harry-like 'My darling Ginny'😄
