Bloody Amethyst chapter 74 . 7/6
I noticed something...
in a later chapter does Dorea tell Xanxus that coffee is poisonous for magicals (other than Zabini)... but in this chapter does it say that Lucius went to get a cup of coffee...
either he tried to poison himself, his family magic protects him, or it is a miss...
just wanted a clarificationlove the story, BTW, and hope you update it soon, I really want to see what happens after the whole bazooka fiasco, and who death's son actually is

Noooo bro! I am from Argentina and I live in the Province of Mendoza in the Department of Las Heras, Malargüe is to the South. I was surprised to see my country and province in a fanfic. LOL

"That sounded like a very British understatement."

Arguably, calling the preceding statement a "very British understatement" is *itself* a "very British understatement".

Regarding Dorea's outfit for the wedding: a scarf, boa, or shawl can be worn so that it hangs down in back (usually to just above the small of the back), comes up over the shoulders and wraps around the arms; which would both be able to disguise anything wrapped around her arms and still leave her neckline and necklace in full view. Also, isn't she an acknowledged parselmouth? If so, why couldn't she wear *Fizz* like that.

Additionally, I'd imagine that paperwork legally registering the Varia as a mercenary company is on file with the Italian government somewhere. Regardless of whether that's normally legal in Italy or not.

"His mind supplied an image of Tyrant fixing the seams which was absurd and terrifying, yet disturbingly plausible."

I have this image of Tyrant sneaking it out of the bedroom and then repairing it out in the open where *everyone* can see, and they're just all wondering *why* Tyrant is repairing a wedding dress, of all things, but they're all too afraid to ask him, so it just remains a mystery. Then he sneaks it back, having gotten a quiet laugh out of everyone's obvious curiosity and simultaneous unwillingness to approach him on the subject.

...And he's found a use for *every* pair of boots, even the ones that Luss expected him to *never* wear, hasn't he? At some point he's going to take the motorcycle boots, now worn out, back to Luss and ask for the specifications so that he can replace them. Just to see the look on the Sun Officer's face.

"...and these would be Zabini tailors, so they might well be as immune as Blaise and the rest of the relatives he'd met so far."

And even if they aren't immune, they'll be professionals who have experience at dealing with it, so they can do their jobs properly and keep any fantasies in check until they're off the clock.

And Xanxus has forgotten that his wife got herself adopted into a family that's descended from predatory avians and then married the one with the most such blood out of the whole lot. She does appear to have a thing.

No lie: I've read *actual sex scenes* that were less pornographic than this chapter. Not a complaint mind you; just a fact.
ChildeRoland13 chapter 151 . 6/29
"...this was good wine."

A nation of people who literally *need* alcohol as a medically necessary supplement developing *really* good alcohol. ::Sarcastically:: How unexpected.

As for Xanxus's marital related woes, he should remember that Italy got the whole "hot-blooded Italian" stereotype by trying to keep up with the Sabines, pre-Statute of Secrecy. Hot-blooded Italian *Sirens*. And his blood is thicker than most and has some *Veela* thrown in for good measure.
ChildeRoland13 chapter 118 . 6/26
"It was a real shame he couldn't be there to see it."

And then he discovered the magic (no pun intended) of pensieves.
ChildeRoland13 chapter 112 . 6/25
Given the crossover, it occurs to me that Enochian might not be "fictional" here. [jk] Barty probably speaks it. Just to annoy Squalo. [/jk]
ChildeRoland13 chapter 105 . 6/25
"...if trained Lightnings could slide through Mist-work like that, both the Mists and the Lightnings had a lot to learn still."

Hard to contain? Hard to trap?

"Do not show that you speak English; it is better to not give them ways to find us."

I have to metaphorically slap you for that bit of stupid. She's visibly *Indian*, they already know just by looking at her that she speaks English. It's the official language of India and the *only* language that everyone in the country speaks (which is why it's the official language). Literally 99.9% of the Indian populace speak English as a first language (generally alongside another, but it's *not* a second language, they learn them side by side). Most people might not realize that, but I'd bet that plenty of the Vongola are aware of it.

Also, two people of different ethnicities who both speak English? That only narrows it down to nearly half the planet: Britain, the US, Canada, a good chunk of the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, India, at least half of non-British Europe, and any number of mixed, mostly foreign communities in Central and South America.

So yeah, 1) they already *know* she speaks English, and 2) just by looking at them they can probably narrow down where there from to the list I gave, so unless they can identify the accent (which could be the result of a boarding school, thus removing any definite links to their origin beyond "they both went to school in England", and some such schools have exchange students from all over the world, meaning that they could both be from entirely different countries of origin and residence), it doesn't exactly give the Vongola anything to work with that they don't already have. And admitting that Rence and Parvati met in boarding school would destroy that little bit any way.

Not saying that she should have talked with them, but trying to hide that she knows English is completely pointless.
ChildeRoland13 chapter 61 . 6/17
"Prophecy is never random: those to whom it is given are always personally involved in them somehow, be it as ancestors to the participants or as participants themselves, but never having put any stock in Divination –or even having taken an OWL in it– Dumbledore had not known this. If he had, he might have been a little more open-minded about the identity of the 'Dark Lord' spoken of and the risk posed by the child of 'those who have thrice defied him'.

Three times had Dumbledore had his proposals to the International Confederation of Wizards thoroughly contested by the Representative from Sabina in the time leading up to the prophecy being made, despite those protests never actually leading to a change in ICW policy; Sabina however had not signed any of those three treaties and openly flouted them still.

Blaise Zabini had been born just before midnight on the night of the thirtieth of September, the seventh month of the Roman calendar; little more than a month after the prophecy had been made.

Albus Dumbledore had never even heard of Soulfire."

The prophecy also says that the Dark Lord would "mark him as his equal". Of course it didn't say that would be done *knowingly*, or in what way they would be equal, and comparing Dorea to Grindlewald, not even an hour after noting that Blaise was her best friend, which was the same position that Albus once held with respect to Grindlewald (even if it became more), could certainly count.

As the man said: "Clever girl."
(Wish I could just post the GIF, but *no*, FFN has to be all *limited* and not cool like AO3's comment section is. Bah.)
