You're sure that Sirius gave his permission? Well, I trust you my friend, because I'm too lazy to check it by myself. I admit that I'm less and less canon-proof after years of reading fanfiction. And somehow I can't bring myself to reading the books again. The reason is solely the lack of Ginny time in the books.
Thanks for the prompt elucidation.

Author's Response: Oh yes, he does. Read the last chapter of PoA, you'll come to know :)

Well, there're reasons why Rita Skeeter is on my top 3 most disliked characters, right after Draco Malfoy and Tom Riddle. You just delivered another one. I'm quite curious what you've planned with Remus and this anti-werewolf legislation. Or if it is just a twist to introduce Umbridge earlier. We will see...

It seems that you're planning to add Daphne into the group of Harry's friends sometimes later. I think it's basically a good idea. Rayrae118 has done it in his promise tetralogy, and it worked quite well. I liked it.

I wonder who's signed Harry's permission slip to visit Hogsmeade, and if Harry can contact Sirius eventually, and if Sirius can help him in his dilemma. I doubt the latter, however I'm open to being convinced otherwise.

Great update! Thank you!

Author's Response: I'm disappointed in you. Surely you remember Sirius signing Harry's permission slip to visit Hogsmeade at the end of third year! It was delivered to him on the train along with Pigwidgeon. For shame, sir, for shame :P Anyway, Umbridge did introduce the anti-werewolf legislation which made Remus completely unemployed - I wanted to bring that in as an added sub-plot. But yes, it also allowed to bring the Great Pink Toad into the story. I'm surprised, however, that she isn't one of your top 3 disliked characters - surely Skeeter should be after Umbridge on the list?

Love the inner workings of Harry's mind as he deals with his own confusion about girls. I'm guessing Harry and Ginny might become an item sooner rather than later. Neville is wonderfully knowledgeable and helpful in this chapter. He was wise to purchase extra gillyweed so that Harry can practice before the second task. Curious to see how Greengrass and certain other Slytherin students will come into play.

Author's Response: Thank you for your review MollyandArthur! The inner workings happen in 6th year in canon, but I decided to bring it in earlier than expected, because Harry isn't as thick in my story as he is in canon, and because you readers would love them getting together quicker than usual. Hope to see your reviews for future chapters :)

Yea neville thanks a lot giving harry more slimy things to eat and test with before the for ginny harry should just give it up and go for it and be dam of for umbridge i was wondering if she was going to make an apperance.....kutgw

Author's Response: Hi there, thanks for your review! I'm not sure if Harry will - as you put it - "be dam of Ron" and just start dating Ginny. Let's see what happens :)

Poor Ginny... haha... it is clear that she did not like the attention Harry was giving to the situation with Daphne.

I already voted over at at first I wanted to have Harry and Ginny date other people and then get together. The way you described Daphne is fascinating to me. It is suggested that she does not necessarily support Voldemort so there is a nice change there. Most authors are like Ron...they just lump all Slytherin together.

With that said... I would have loved to see something between Daphne and Harry before Ginny BUT then I remembered that in the books Harry and Ginny date other people and then get together. I remember it being frustrating. With that said... I would like to see them get together and stay that way.

I am curious to see how you would handle that relationship. Some authors tend to make Harry some genius casanova that knows the right things to say all the time. Sometimes the story loses focus and we then are treated to just reading about Harry and Ginny.

I love them both as a couple I do but I hope that is not the case here. I am confident it would not be. You are doing an awesome job so far and I see no reason why that should change.

I am a huge fan of your work here. I cant wait to see how you will handle the Voldemort situation. :)

Author's Response: Oh no MisterBlack, she definitely didn't. But his subsequent show of empathy towards Daphne's situation brought her back to earth, so to speak :P Thanks for your vote! I agree that it might be frustrating for everyone on the whole if these two take too long to get together. Right now, it's looking like they might get together after sometime (without dating other people, which is what happened in canon), but let's see. I will take the poll results into consideration, so please, please do spread the word about the story and the poll amongst your fellow Potterhead friends :D Rest assured, I will balance the romance and the adventure out in equal measure :) You won't be reading only of Harry and Ginny, but you won't completely miss them either. Thank you so much for your kind words :) I'm glad that you like what I've tried to write so far. I hope to hear from you in future chapters!

Great chapter, loved Neville being able to give useful information again

Author's Response: Thank you! I just realized that you'd already reviewed this Chapter 6, after I responded to your earlier review for Chapter 5 :P Look forward to hearing from you for future chapters :)
