Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 I: Back to Hogwarts

Oh, the joys of returning to school!  Third year, here I come!  After I get Madam Pomfrey to let me out of the Hospital Wing.  Why oh why do I have to get sick now?

2 II: Every Professor Has Their Quirks

The teachers here approach teaching in different ways.  Some are strict, others are laid back.  Some allow talking, others won't even let us whisper.  But I don't just like reacting to their rules.  You might say I like testing them out to see how they react to me.  Especially the new one.

3 III: Numbers, Names, and Cards

Arithmancy is turning out to be a favorite class of mine, simply for the looks Hermione gives me when I brag about how 'easy' it is.  But while something we study in that class gives me reason to pause, I realize that I'm still really, really happy that I chose this instead of Divination.

4 IV: Just Forgot One Little Thing

Remember when I was sick at the beginning of the term and couldn't keep any food down?  Yeah, that was a terrible day for me.  In my haste to get to school, I forgot something at home.  Too bad no owl would ever retrieve something for me, huh?

5 V: Always an Interesting Halloween

Halloween is here!  And I turned in my permission form to McGonagall, so I can visit Hogsmeade!  This day is going to be perfect!

6 VI: Masterpieces Take Time

I think I’m getting a headache. Everything seems normal except for me. I have questions, far too many questions to things that shouldn’t matter, but I can’t help but try to figure things out. Even practicing my favorite hobby leads me to more questions than answers.

7 VII: I Don't Believe in Coincidences

Okay, so I might have gotten myself a little behind in my schoolwork because I was researching other things (like flipping through books in search of witches in history that looked like me).  But for no apparent reason, I get a mysterious delivery that brings up more questions than ever.

8 VIII: Nudged in the Right Direction

I feel like my head might actually come off my shoulders and start spinning around in circles any minute now.  No, seriously.  If only school wasn't around to get in my way, I could actually follow up with the earth-shattering information I've just been given.

9 IX: Grades Aren't All That Important

If only I didn't have so much homework, I could dedicate all of my time to the library.  Wow, I can't believe I just said that.  I sound like Hermione.  But I don't know what else to research.  So I reach out for a little help from strangers.  While I wait for their responses, my mind can still hardly focus on school.  My plan had better turn up something useful.

10 X: Imaginary Friend or Imaginary Fiend?

Okay, Sally-Anne, you can do this.  I have questions, and I know where to get my answers from.  Asking might seem intimidating now, but I can get through this.  I mean, what's the worst I can learn about Marta Kulinski?

11 XI: Shattered Innocence

I have just experienced the biggest shock in my life!  How am I expected to cope?  Who can I turn to for help?  If only my mind would let me ignore everything I just learned and stop making further connections.

12 XII: Answers Where Least Expected

 The Christmas holidays are supposed to be devoted to relaxing and spending quality time with family.  Well, helping my mum run her pastry shop isn't very relaxing, but at least I'm getting the family time in there.  As long as I'm keeping myself busy during the holidays, I won't have the time or energy to think of Benjamin.  At least, that was my logic.

13 XIII: Knowledge is Power

 Sadly, I was grounded during the Chrismas holiday for some stupid stunt I pulled.  But luckily, I didn't have to worry about Benjamin during the entire time.  Now that I'm going back to school, Benjamin has returned.  However, something's a bit off with him.  He's actually still being nice to me.

14 XIV: Am I Ready to Start This?

I can't pretend that everything is normal.  Sure, I can spend time with my friends and not pay attention in class, but it's just not the same.  I've been consumed with this truth.  And the only way to regain my normal life is to learn more than any normal thirteen year old witch should have to know.

15 XV: Must, Must, Must Make This Work!

 I have the knowledge that I need to complete this plan and be one step closer to destroying Benjamin.  But knowledge alone won't help me.  And try as I might, I can't dedicate all of my time towards Benjamin's demise.

16 XVI: Almost Ready

The moment has arrived. Today is the day that I will go back and discover what exactly happened to Marta Pontem. I'm a little nervous, but it will all be over soon. I know it.

17 XVII: Reaching Back to the Past

 The spell worked!  Sort of.  There's Marta Pontem.  There's Benjamin Gaunt.  And then there's the matter of the curse . . .

18 XVIII: The Terrible Truth

 Our actions have consequences.  Whether they come from success or failure, we sometimes cannot see what those consequences might be . . .

2,939 1
19 XIX: A Glint of Hope

One plan has already failed.  But that doesn't mean I'm going to give up.  Perhaps fate will be kind to me and grant me a bit of luck.

20 XX: Pontem

 Marta . . .
