More 'evil doers' are captured.
- DrT first let me say I really like most your stories! they are all well written with interesting plot lines. this one I just had to review, its wonderful one of the more realistic HP leaves to get help plots, not to many of them sadly since it seems the wisest move on Harry’s part. BTW I googled what the Vondun Voodoo Queen said to Percy at the end of chapter 6 “wan one” LOL did she call him sexy one?
Author's responseNo -- pale/anemic -- he's weak in spirit, but he has strong magic. Also, of course, a play on 'Won Won'
- 'Hips swaying', the Queen approached ... Percy Weasley? Is Percy about to 'get lucky'? He's not the only one who's confused! :-)
Jeeze, even if Daphne is more on the side of the 'good guys', she's still a bloody Slytherin, isn't she? Doing it for personal ambition - to get in on the 'ground floor'. Coldly killing Pansy. Brrrr. Was that necessary, to do that herself? Just personal revenge?
You're right; Flitwick and McGonagall do look bad. You have me considering their canon selves in a new light. They really didn't do a darn thing to help the students, did they?
'Mostly platonic'? Still no romance here, I'm just sayin'. :)
(But I still like the cuddling/healing.)
Author's responseIn once sense, yes, Percy's going to 'get lucky'.
RE: Daphne -- sometimes the leader has to lead by doing her own dirty work.
I don't think canon McG or Flitwick did anyting overtly wrong -- but lots of sins of omission!

Yay! Okay, so I'm a bit late with the review.
I am Happy with the fight, and Happy that Voldy is gone, and now I'm hoping to find out what some to the punishments were for some of the lesser villains. And Daphne as well, since she killed someone she didn't have to.

Author's responseI figured the paintings heard the cliche more than most, but they couldn't object too much since they are spelled to to loyal to the current headmaster. Now, they could!
- I suspect Percy's about to get his mind "expanded" in ways he never dreamed of; one can hope this knocks some sense into the big prat. I thought Daphne's actions, while somewhat self-serving, were necessary if Pansy's actions were as complicit in what happened to other students as it seems; it may not necessarily be a pleasant task but she didn't push it off on someone else (you should take notes, Albus).
I loved the way they totally trapped and hounded the last of Tom Riddle to his capture. It's so appropriate that one with such an ego should be taken that way.
The overall fight was most interesting and I suspect the "fallout" will be even moreso as much gets rearranged in wizarding Britain. Methinks there's going to be a number of families where distant relations suddenly become Heads of the families. Too, 'twill be rather interesting to see what finally happened to Ron and how Ginny's going to take it as she finds out that Harry's now totally lost to her save, perhaps, as a friend.
- There is a factual error in the following passage I would like to point out.
t that point, one of the Vodun, a Voodoo Queen, stalked over to the British Ministry members present. “We could see the looks on your face,” she nearly spat. “You consider us Dark, our magic Dark and primitive.” She looked at them in disgust. “Magicals such as us and those Druids are not the ones who nurtured the two worst Dark Lords in millennia; that was you Europeans.
There were three Dark Lords that they nurtured. Voldemort, Grindelwald and Dumbledore were all Dark Lords and amongst the worst of them all.
