Harry sure has a lot of fortitude if he's able to keep his temper and not fall asleep during Defense classes. Umbridge is the very worst sort of "teacher" and what she's doing is really hurting the students of Hogwarts.

I really liked how Harry tried to connect with Neville over their shared losses at the beginning of the chapter. While Neville may not be ready to have a conversation about what the two of them have lost, at least he knows that Harry is there if he ever wants to talk about what his family has lost.

The teacher's heart in me is grinning from ear to ear because Harry is now determined to pay attention in his classes and finding ways to incorporate what he learns in how he can defend himself during a duel. I had to smile when it was mentioned that Hermione was becoming frustrated that Harry didn't need her as much these days as he has in the past. Well done, great chapter.

Author's Response: Thanks for such a kind and encouraging comment! I think Harry's strong support system is helping him cope with Umbridge. Harry and Neville have so much in common that it's a wonder that they didn't connect more in canon. While I'm not looking to create bookworm Harry, I do like that he cares a bit more about the parts of his education that really matter to him and is willing to put in the work to excel.

Well at lease now they know something is going on and harry is hopefully going to be a little wiser for it…kutgw

Author's Response: I’m hoping that the adults can act in reasonable and responsible ways that set Harry up for success. We’ll see what happens! Thanks for the encouragement!
