It's going to be interesting to see how much Edward can do to reverse the problems his mistakes and cover-ups have caused? Given what we've seen, I can't help but wonder if Shyamal is going to take on the Dark Heir? That could get right interesting, especially if he is fully victorious and unmasks the Dark Heir as someone other than Harry Potter. That might just givce Edward the incentive he needs for a 'come to Jesus' moment of telling the full truth, no matter how painful it might be. Such a moment could have some interesting ripple effects throughout the wizarding world and it'll be interesting to see the reaction of Shyamal and his sibs.
I agree, there's some nice character development here and I suspect Shyamal's been just too busy protecting his sibs to really have time for witches; if things ease up a bit, 'twould be fascinating to see who he goes for.
Edward, you're going to have to grovel. (evil laugh) He's dug himself a big hole and I don't even know if he'll be able to recover the ground he's lost with his siblings and the ground he'll be sure to lose with his friends/family once they find out the truth.
Oh, Shyamal vs the Dark Heir. Elven warrior vs Voldemort's apprentice. Teenager vs *** (can't be spoiling the identity of the Dark Heir no?).
You have to read the next chappie.
Ah, well the ff.net crowd knows already. Says in the summary. I'm a die hard shipper fan for that pairing. Poor Shyamal. Hala's words are going to be biting him the butt soon.
Thanks for the review!
