A mere summary won't do this chapter justice. Read it and see for yourself.
(#) whatareyouevensaying 2006-10-28 02:32:53 PMMore than anything else, the more-than-usual amounts of Luna helped make this chapter one of the best yet. I also liked the brief conversation with Hack and the ward details. Can't wait for more.
Author's responseThanks. It is filed under Harry/Luna on ff.net for a reason. Though there probably won't be any romance until the sequel. Lots of stuff to do until then. ~Jim
- Poor Hack....maybe he should get an ice pack....the battle was great as you gave the goblins a cool power but didn't over do it like most of the authors seem to. You displayed both there weknesses and strenghts and didn't just make them amazingly powerful but opresed by the wizards...good job and keep 'em rolling
Author's responseThanks. I had a lot of help with finding just the right balance with making Goblins interesting, but not overpowering. They run the banks. However, it's because they are smart. They broker the deals with trolls, giants and other races that wizards wouldn't normally debase themselves with. ~Jim
- Poor poor Hack!
RE: a small but important typo (if no one else has mentioned it: In Harry's apology to Luna
--I was waiting for your reply and hoping that I had lost one of the few friends I had left. I watched your 'ink accident' happen.--
You might want to change that to "hoping I had NOT lost"
Author's responseI'll fix that typo when I post the betaed chapter.
Thanks as always.

Good description of a battle. Does Harry's friend give him any idea how long it takes to come to terms with his animal?
Thanks for the regular updates! Still a good story. (Now, I am starting to look forward to the time beyond the jungle adventure, when he encounters his so-called friends.)
Author's responseBy dangerous I suppose you are meaning to innocent keyboards and monitors on the receiving end of beverage baths. I got more than a few reports of that so POINTS FOR ME!!!! Glad you enjoyed the action in the chapter. ~Jim
- Honesty is the best policy - unless you're on the witness stand - but that last line was just funny.
I'm really enjoying this fic - hope you update again soon.
Author's responseI have to admit it was 'potty humor', but everyone seemed to love it. I update this one every other week.~Jim
