I love the way you gave a back-story to Umbridge's hate of magical creatures or anything not "human". And that opening paragraph on Bella was beautiful. *adds to favorite stories list*

I like this story a lot. It is haunting and very beautifully written. I like how you gave Umbridge a werewolf sister.

First, I loved this chapter. It makes me want to scream because it's so sad, but I loved it all the same. Second, my review is going to be long, because I was writing stuff down as I read the chapter. So get ready...
I loved the contrast in 1. between the words Bella was being accused for and her thoughts. So incredibly different, yet the same. But tell me one thing...is she really one of your favorites? I'm having trouble seeing her in that light lol.
"He peers up at her from his desk chair, magical window behind him depicting a dreary sort of rain that turns everything it touches to mud and mush, tetchy November weather with all the charm of piss and glutinous egg whites." I just fell in love with that blunt description. Amazing!
"Bella was fifteen at the time, naïveté flowing in rivers from her graceful form but quick to evaporate." Great imagery...
The background for Dolores was amazing. I know we all hate her, but what you wrote softens up my opinion a bit. Gives her reason to be the way she is...and I love Myra. Absolutely. Did she die? Or was she just captured? That was one part I was confused about.
Lots of mystery that kept me reading. Love love love. And your style is wonderful, as always. Can't wait for an update, if you're planning on one!

This was amazing. More than. I love how it isn't exactly logical, how I have to guess when each scene is taking place, how each character is connected to the other. You convey everything so well-pain, joy, love, fear. It's beautiful. The dialogue is well done, too.
"'I was just talking to Andi,' he explains, 'and then Moony turned up, all suspicious as usual. But anyhow.' He gives a mock bow. 'I’m here now. Moral support, and all that shit. Now, where’s the blasted rat?'" That sounds just like Sirius!
Congrats and keep writing-you have such a talent!

I'm speechless... Personally, I think the lack of order gives character to the story. It's very well written and eerie and sort of dark. Also, it's dark. Dark is always good when it's about war. OK, I guess I'm not so speechless.
Keep up the excellent work!
