Your very last capsule here -- the reflections and ruminations of Lucius Malfoy -- may be one of the best passages thus far in your stories. It is a powerfully compact infusion of description, contemplation, character, recollection and foreshadowing. To accomplish that, credibly, in less than 200 words, is a badge of fine writing!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I truly appreciate your mention of this passage which I was honestly not very certain of when I wrote it. I'm very glad that it struck a chord!

Narcissa's change of heart is a nice plot twist. That was a great chapter to read overall as well. I'm not sure I really want Lucius saved though ;-)

Author's Response: Thank you!! I completely understand your feelings about Lucius. He is rather reprehensible.

Interesting development. I'm not sure to what extent the Malfoys are trustworthy, probably only as long as they need help to get Lucius and Draco into safety.

The adults obviously make good progress to prepare for the downfall of Voldemort. Sometimes I've got the impression they're going to try to defeat him without the kids even noticing.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! Malfoys and trustworthy don't seem to be words that belong in the same sentence, but desperate need can make for some strange alliances ;) The adults are definitely working to destroy Voldemort without involving the kids too much. Unfortunately as much progress as they make, the existence of the Prophecy still hangs over Harry.

Interesting chapter - especially the letter from Narcissa Malflunky! Don't blame Ginny not wanting to hear about her brother's prowness in the bedroom but he obviously satisfied Anna! Boy those Malflunkys have their nerve! Can't blame Cissy's desperation for help tho - she's certainly no fool when comes to her family's well being! She's lucky she still has one with Voldedork so ticked at Dorko and Lucius! Can't wait to see what happens when Sirius and Bill meet with Cissy! Thanks for another great one! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Author's Response: Thank you so much! Yes, indeed, too much info about a sibling's intimate activities is simply not necessary :) I imagine Ginny was thinking 'glad they're happy, they deserve to enjoy each other, now let's talk about anything else.' I quite agree that Cissy is no fool. From what little we learned of her, I always imagined her to be highly manipulative and savvy, as well as extremely haughty and practical. Like Lucius and Draco, one of her few truly redeeming qualities is her love for her immediate family.

Great chapter!

Wow, unexpected is an understatement. Let's hope Mrs Malfoy won't change her mind getting the impression that Voldemort's victory would be better for her family. The attack on Tom could easily become an ambush to gain the favour of their Dark Lord. After all, the Malfoy's always trim their sails to catch the passing breeze.

Tom's wand is broken? I'm curious about the consequences.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I must agree that an ambush would have to be suspected when dealing with the Malfoys. They have been loyal to the Death Eater cause for decades. Of course, loyalties have a way of shifting, particularly when lives are threatened. Remus pointed out Narcissa's rather self-centered reasons for offering her assistance, and Sirius is not likely to trust too quickly or easily. The girls inadvertently broke Tom's wand during their escape from the clearing. The consequences will become clear over time :)
