Good story, even though it makes me want to remove my eyes with a spork...lack of spaces between paragraphs makes my head hurt.
I enjoyed your jibes quite a bit, especially those directed at the innovator!Harry crowd. Rookwood is an interesting character. I'm assuming at this point that Harry won't be using him for the ritual, so I guess my question is will he find a different Death Eater, or will he pass on the ritual?
PS - This has nothing to do with this particular chapter, but I liked the fact that you brought Terrence Higgs into the story, even if his jealousy over Tonks makes my skin crawl (I guess I'm too invested in the Harry/Tonks ship...must control myself).
