Ch.14 - - The scene with the Jones was grippingly morbid - well done.
The dueling with Harry weaker made since. It is not real, and Harry comes alive in a real fight as a true warrior does. Harry will go beyond Remus and Thia, whether if you show it or not but you are right to have him at this stage now. he's dueled little, but he will learn VERY fast - I agree with your assessment.
Life has fluffiness and filler in it.
Tootle-Loo - that's the way I've always seen it.
