You're never going to let us rest, are you? If I'm not up to my feels in Marlene Family Deaths, then I'm sitting on the edge of my seat because every which way something is unraveling and you-know-what is about to hit the fan.

Severus. No no no Severus. But it really is so like him, isn't it? And there's that feeling, because whatever happens at the end of this won't be good, and Severus won't be there to stop it. Or he'll be too late to stop it. This story has always been filled with shadowy characters and less than trustworthy/false alliances... but I feel like this chapter kind of marked the start to the end of it all. Like, any hope we had, whatever you did to us when they finally kissed for the first time, whatever you made us feel when we learned how much he does care about her through the course... it won't be enough to save her. And it's really, really heart breaking.

I'm kind of angry at Netterheim. I understand why he's leaving. No, he's not evil, but he's not good either. He doesn't want to be mixed up in all of this, but still. Something about him being around just felt good for Severus. Maybe I'm crazy. But now he's leaving, the Guild is going to rally from afar (though it really does seem like the most logical response) but Severus won't be invited to go with him. Not that he can't get his own way out at any moment... but this just may be the reason he stays.

So -- through this chapter I've wanted to shake both Severus and Dorcas silly. You -- author, you need to put some more sense into that reckless girls brain. Except then she wouldn't be Dorcas..but still! She's causing me heart palpitations!

I'm getting very sad at the number of chapters I have left ;(.

Author's Response: No. I am not letting you rest. Get up off that couch and start washing dishes! Pronto!

Seriously, after reading your reviews, I feel like I owe you chocolate because you sound so morbidly depressed and sad. One of the reasons that I chose these characters and this timeline and this plot in particular was because I felt like I needed to toughen up as a writer and really stretch to put my characters in bad situations. So if things seem to get worse and worse every chapter, that's actually a compliment... but I still feel like you need a Dove bar or something.

Netterheim's departure is kind of like pulling Severus' support structure out from under him, isn't it? With the Potions Master gone, Severus will have to fend for himself. the Potions Shop was a sort of haven for him, a little buffer between Severus and the Death Eaters, and now that that's gone, well... Let me just get you a bag of Hershey's Kisses and we'll cuddle a while...

Dorcas is really rash and all over the place. I wondered a lot if I was pushing her too far, but she doesn't know what else to do. You seem to be so attached to her. It's great. And I think you have given me my first winking sad face ever. I think I have an eclair or two over here...
