Poor Hermione, please tell me your are going to find a way out of this for Harry and Hermione. Plus I think thta along with Parkinson's life force, everyone who had a hand in helping her, covering for her, and who gave her the knife needs some life force taken from themselves also. I love how the Brotherhood just smacks Snape around. I mean before he draw his wand they have already laid him out. I hope they dod a few more times. Can't wait to see Sirius deal with the Parkinson's and wht they are going to choose. Their fortune or their dumb butt daughter? As for Dumbledore, maybe he needs to be more concerned about how Pansy was able to sneak a very dangerous, curse and illegal object in his school and attack a student right under his nose. This makes two years in a row something like this has happened. Maybe he needs to start concertrating on protecting his students instead of trying to redeem a girl who is showing no remorse for trying to kill a fellow student. I like the idea of making Hermione a horacrux and maybe the brotherhood inducting their first female member or starting a sisterhood in parternship with the brotherhood. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to the next chapter.
