Moody tosses a wrench into Harry's plans.
- Good chapter. I would expect Harry would make a very special wand for himself. Maybe he could call Fawkes for a tail feather or perhaps something else would work better for him now? Harry seems to be getting better but he still doesn't seem ready to jump into the frey. Thanks for writing. W.
- Well, it seems that Harry's getting better, slowly, and Mad-Eye is definitely trying to help him along. I don't think he's yet ready to step into the arena again but he -is- getting better. Meanwhile, now that the idea has been planted, it should be very interesting to see what special kind of wand Harry develops for himself. I rather suspect it's going to be rather different from his original one and will not suffer the problems of his original one; much to Tommy-boy's displeasure.
(#) siledubhghlase 2009-06-03 11:01:27 PMI was wondering about that bloodwood wand Harry's been working on. His new one perhaps?
You need to keep this story going. It's very good. I appreciate that you're not rushing it. It's frustrating, but recoveries such as Harry's are going to take time.
I gotta love Moody's part in all of this. He's the one actually helping Harry break out of his shell and I think he's right about Ollivander too. Ollie knows who James Black really is. He never forgets a wizard or his wand.
My evidence for that is the day Hermione brought in Miss Doreen Wood. Once Miss Wood chose the right wand--one Harry made--he made the comment about Dumbledore, Riddle, and Harry and then winked at Hermione. He knows. He certainly knows.
As for Hermione--I hope there's a spark there. He needs her desperately.
Meeting up with Bill is probably more fortuitous than Harry thinks and I think Moody knows it. I'm glad it was Bill who was the first Weasley Harry had contact with since his release. He's the more down-to-earth and understands the need for Harry to remain in the shadows. Just a face in the crowd for now.
Now that letters have gone out to the Weasleys and Harry's made contact with the Twins, this is going to get interesting. Keep up the good work.

Your slow style of writing suits the pace of the story very well and i await your updates!
