No birthday party for the twins?
Party for F&G? From a practicality perspective, their birthday falls mid-week, so they're juggling work commitments. They're also older, and don't come to the castle for much more than Quidditch. Quite possible they went out for drinks with Angelina, Katie and Lee Jordan. From the composition perspective, the birthday would do little to advance the plot. But rest assured, they will find ways to have fun.

THING 1 and THING 2 are so dead when Ginny finds them....kutgw
Yes, it would be natural to expect so!
In fact, as you've now seen, the twins will have lucked into some remarkable leniency from their sister, but will suffer the consequences in other ways. Such is life...
Thank you for the review!

Finally you updated this story! Good to see Harry and Teri. I hope he can usethis property of residual magic to protect people against voodoo.
Indeed yes -- this little discovery is going to be a significant plot element as things move forward into the final third of the story. And yes, it did take a crazily long time to update.
Doing my best to not undertake any new projects that might distract me from it. This story, in all its complexities and intricacies, is proving to be a bit of a bete noire. But I shall prevail.
Great to still have you on this slow-moving train, LG!

It's not a review, yet. Iím sorry for that. I just wanted to say that I'm glad youíve updated. To my shame, I must admit that I've just noticed that I haven't written a review for the last three chapters.
Oi mate! If you real the whole sequence (TC,FL,TPC,Trix), you're committing to the better part of a million words. Kudos to you if you can race through that in a couple days :)
Anyway, it's great to have a high profile, celebrated authour such as yourself reading through this! ;)

Well, if this cliffhanger is for one more year, then it's certainly evil!
First of all, great to hear from you again, Aimless. Thank you for the review!
Secondly, let me pledge to not leave you hanging too long. The vast majority of the next two chapters (and all of the fundamental plot) is written. Still needs editing, and I'm waiting for an infusion of local colour from a collaborator (you'll see), but beyond that it should be ready to move soon.

Lovely to wake up to a new chapter this morning! The slight tension of the first sections increased my general wariness of them travelling to Haiti. From the unfortunate need to bribe the entry official to the smarmy, hands-on greeting to the vague warnings about the nightlife, particularly during the Easter holiday, I'm almost surprised Harry didn't insist everyone remain at the hotel. Although with Thing One and Thing Two involved, staying out of trouble is nearly impossible! Your descriptions of Haiti certainly captured the island well - the sights, sounds, smells, even the insects. Excellent work, though ending with a cliffhanger was not kind!
Well, lots of interesting thoughts here, thank you!
First of all, let me put at ease your concerns about dangling from the precipice, as I definitely hope to post again quite soon. Hopefully two weeks.
Your point about Harry is insightful, and hints at a couple of things at play here. First of all, throughout The Prevailing Counterpoint Harry was the leader -- his role was urgent, defined, and gave him nearly absolute authourity. Much more so than in canon, because of the way that Matt had led things off in Taking Control. In Trix, conversely, Harry has largely abdicated his leadership and reverted to more of an advisory role. Except when prompted by need, of course, and that does still arise. So that's one reason he didn't make heavy pronouncements, instead leaving it up to people with defined responsibilities (Langlois, Zabini and Daphne) to make the call. We can probably assume that Langlois at least said something to the rowdier folks; we can probably assume that Zabini and Daphne did not... Anyway, the fact of the matter is that Harry barely really even thought of trying to rein them in and, although Ginny did consider it, she was too out-of-sorts to do much about it. Thus, perhaps the bigger concern might not be that a bunch of them got into trouble, but rather that neither Harry nor Ginny were on their game enough to prevent it.
