Not much physical action & yet, I feel wiped out!! I'm really enjoying this story. It's quite an interestingly different plot. I truly can't guess what's happening next.
I'm a little frustrated about Hermione - but yet she's in character for your story. I'm curious how long it will take her to come around. She's going to have to go through alot of inner contemplation - she's made her share of mistakes & hasn't come to acknowledge them - but I think that's because she's not done making them.
I feel for Harry - unable to ask for help or to explain what he's seen. He's going to need some more Gryffindor courage & explain the horrors he's seen in the veil. He hasn't learned that when he shares those burdens - he becomes stronger.
Valencia is interesting. Obviously - she knows Harry is alive. I'll be curious when that gets "officially" acknowledged.
I was quite excited to see that you've updated. It really is a fascinating story - oh - I don't trust Justinian at all. Coincidences for Harry are never good.
Looking forward to your next update - it's a great story - thanks for sharing it!
Yes, Hermione has made some mistakes. She already realizes this, she just doesn't really know what to do about it. She'll eventually have to address some of the ramifications of her current employments, which seems to be the source of most of her mistakes.
As for Harry, its not fear or embarassment that keeps him quiet. It's something more like shame and the hope that what he's seen is simply not true.
Now, Valencia and and Justinian are very interesting. I'm glad that so many people are accepting them, even if they don't trust them at all.
Thanks for reading, and more updates are on the way.
