The Library is usually a quiet place...
- Well, that was an interesting "learning experience" for Viktor, methinks he now has lots to think about on a number of subjects. I do like how Neville took over protecting the younger students, I can see them helping bring out his true personality and ability. The banterage at the end was quite enjoyable and amusing; it could lead to some interesting "play" in a few years.
Hermione's musings at the start of the chapter were nicely done and I can appreciate her thoughts. That song does seem rather appropriate for her thoughts about Harry and he does fill the bill, not from desire to put himself forward but simply because he can't simply walk away when things need doing.
- Lovely interactions between ... well, loads of people..=) I like your Dumbledore. Your take on the victorian equality of the Wizarding world was well executed, and the Diplomacy-by-fist was truly schoolyard perfect. Once the boys slug it out, there's no animosity left. It's Dealt With.
Keep it up. I wouldn't mind longer chapters, but you do as you please in your personal universe. I'll be here anyway. Thanks.
- I completely agree with Vanir and Cateagle, though I must admit that having never seen Footloose, I'm a little lost on the reference.
I also understand what you mean about Hagrid and Krum. That's why I wait until I'm in the editing stages (after spelling and grammar check) to mangle the written word with their dialects.
