Fascinating treatment of teens coping with difficult and somewhat ambiguous situations. Rowling obviously dwelt extensively on the ambiguities of protection, self defense, anger and vengeance, but the difference in this story is a greater network of friends with whom to achieve the absolution of perspective and confession. I think the life lessons register better within an atmosphere of greater openness.
I\'d say it\'s written like an educator :)
One canon point to offer if you like, is that the \'reverse spell\' you refer to is Priori Incantatem.
Anyway, another year, another bold, dramatic chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! You raise an interesting point that I admit I haven't focused on until this moment. Reading the Harry Potter books I was often frustrated by the lack of communication among the characters. So often a horrible event occured specifically because of a question not being asked, a truth not being explained. Real life is of course full of those moments, so I can't fault Rowling for writing her characters the way she did. And of course, ambiguities, conflicts, and misunderstandings drive drama. Thank you for the reminder of Priori Incantatem :)

I cannot but help feel Draco deserves something more. Charley could chuck him to the dragons.

Oh this one was interesting! Nice to know everyone, especially Anna, are OK! Hate that she didn't press charges against Dorko and I wish she'd gotten a chance to use that knife and turn him into a eunuch! I'd imagine he's catching it from his mom in Finland for screwing up all their plans! Narcissa is obviously afraid of Moldyshorts and she should be! Something tells me Dorko won't stay away from Hogwarts and if he doesn't I hope he runs into Neville first thing(or Charlie if he ever hooks up with Anna)! Also glad to see Harry's friends supporting him which he needs now that he knows the prophecy! As usual I can't wait for the next one! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Great read again! I think I like where this is going. I do hope we have not seen the last of Draco though. I mean, he has some suffering to do still...
