Awesome job with the warding! I liked how Bill pointed out about the attachment issues coming up, because I realy feeel you could do something nasty with that by accident if you aren't careful. Regardless, the hallucinations are fun, but I REALLY hope that you come up with something interesting as an animagus form. Personally, I love Cockroach!Harry and Mongoose!Harry, but the former is out, I'm pretty sure. I can't wait to see what happens next!
Thanks. So many times warding is just kind of something thrown out there. Bill is trying to be a big brother, friend and a mentor.
I also intend to really go deep into being an animagus. In far too many stories, being an animagus is just some checkoff on the author's 'create and uberHarry' check sheet. Being an animagus will be a central key of the story.
