Good to know that Remus hasn't left Tonks' bedside. Was this a push in the right direction?

Harry is slowly getting better at dodging awkward questions. I'm really excited to see how his friends will take it when Harry finally tells them the whole truth whenever this will happen. I know I myself would become cautious, always wondering if there are more things that are being kept secret from me.

I wouldn't be surprised if won't see much of Ron in the near future... lol.

Author's Response: Remus is quite stubborn, but there’s nothing like a near-death experience to make you reconsider your prior assumptions. Harry has definitely been forced to be more secretive about things than in canon, when he shared everything with Ron and Hermione almost immediately. I like the emotional tension of him wrestling with his responsibility to the adults who’ve placed so much faith in him and his connection to his friends who want to support him. There will definitely be more of that struggle coming up! One reason to have Ron ask Padma instead of Parvati is to have him connected with someone outside of Gryffindor. Having teens with raging hormones dating someone they share a common room with seems like it was part of why Ron’s amorous escapades in canon didn’t go all that well. Maybe trying to make the most of time walking around the castle and at meals instead of just constantly snogging in the common room will help the relationship be a bit deeper emotionally?

Yes, Harry is in a bit of a dilemma. But why would he put his friends in danger when he now has adults he can turn to? I'm really curious to see whether it will be Harry who defeats Voldemort in the end, or one of his mentors, maybe even Sirius.

Author's Response: A teenage boy may have good options available, but that doesn't mean he'll take those options! I do think the concern you express is reasonable, though. Having better connection to qualified adults will be a big deal, as long as Harry chooses to rely on them... Thanks for the comment!

OK... so it wasn't a week that I had to wait to find out if Tonks survived her ordeal in the corridor. I've been reading your chapters at work and haven't had the guts to take the time to comment while on the clock. If you look at the time stamps on the last four chapters, I've written these comments all within the space of several hours, after finding the time to gather all the notes I made while reading.

Anyway, Harry certainly has a big dilemma regarding telling Ginny, Ron and Hermione about the Horcruxes or keeping silent for a while longer. I would have thought by now that he would have done.

Yeah, for Tonks waking from the snake bites. I love how Sirius teased her, earning himself a slap, for insinuating that there was more to her relationship with Remus and that Tonks deliberately got hurt to get some sympathy and a proper date out of him!

I really like the conversation with the group. We learn a lot about their concern for Tonks as well as their readiness to move past emotional hurts. It's so typical teenage boys to not know how to comfort a crying girl and that Ginny expertly slipped into the role to help Hermione.

I had to smile at Harry's wish that Umbridge's fireplace would malfunction and strand her in Tibet!

Finally, I'm glad Ron's picked Padma over Lavender for this next Hogsmeade weekend! I hope it goes well for him.

Author's Response: Okay, the fact that you take notes in order to write detailed and helpful reviews is so very kind. I can't tell you how appreciative that makes me feel! There will definitely be some information sharing in the near future, but the full extent of it will have to wait for another chapter. I couldn't kill off Tonks, at this point, as she's one of my favorite characters. Get to asking her out, Remus! I try to be realistic with how I write the characters, and I just kinda doubt Harry would know what to do when Hermione cries, and probably the same for Ron and Neville. As for Ron and Padma, I'm excited to see how things turn out! Thanks so much for your spectacular comment!

I think Umbridge has run her course and i am hopeful that she makes an exit soon because she really is a piece of work and dumb as a box of rocks…i take that back, i feel sorry for the rocks….as for Toni’s im glad to see she is making a recovery and i do hope this helps Remus wake up a lot and ask the poor girl out…kutgw

Author's Response: Thanks for the encouragement! Umbridge still has a role to play in this story, but hopefully it will be worth the frustration of dealing with her for so long. I'm glad Tonks is on the mend, too.
