Very peculiar - is Brian now growing because he's actually using his magic?
Anyway, fantastic chapter, as per usual - and I'm so pleased to see such a quick update!
Thanks again :D Hope you're having a good summer!

I'm so pleased to see an update! I absolutely adored this chapter (and the mention of Malcolm from RaM!), especially the duelling and the scene with Filius and Pomona.
I hope you are having an excellent summer, and I look forward to the next chapter!

This is an awesome update.
I like how Brain has started duelling, it is an interesting characteristic.
I cannot wait for more :D
P.s. Winters freezing this year in Aus! lol

Aww, you updated! For a while there, I thought you'd abandoned the story.
That was such a sweet chapter! Not only watching Min and Albus together, but their son preparing breakfast for them.
I can only imagine why he has a selky skin core for his wand. Might it be because he's a powerful shapeshifter who can change skins when he takes an animagus form? Everyone knows the legend about selkies being able to leave behind their seal skin while they take human shape. He does seem native to the water, doesn't he?
He got good grades! It's understandable that his worst was defense, it was probably everyone's worst. How much teaching could Quirrel have actually done while concentrating on Voldemort and the stone?
I've always liked the mandrakes, they're pretty unique. And Zoe is so cute!...The boy talks to gnomes? Is there anything he can't befriend? I can't believe that they've got a personality! You're very creative, I'd have never thought to find out what the gnomes were like. What's a Jarvey?
Those gnomes are lucky! All they have to do is sit and chat while they eat a bit. Especially now that they don't have to worry about being removed from the garden. Do they help the plants in anyway, kind of like earth-worms?
Good for Eliot! How long does it take to hatch baby squids?

You updated! And I adored the chapter. This story has always been one of my favourites, and I was hoping you would update soon.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

YAY! Another chapter! It was lovely, my dear - I really enjoyed reading it - especially the beginning bit with Albus and Minerva :D
Great job, as always, and I hope everything is well with you.

…Brian didn’t choose his own want? How peculiar. Would any wand work for him, then? How was his previous one chosen? He may be able to use any wand, but will one who chose him work even better?
So that’s what happened! It all happened so fast, and I’d missed some of it last chapter. Brian Rollins is one of the most powerful wizards of his time, yet he is still impressed by the little things. I wreckon he doesn’t realize how special he is.
And I’m sure he got top marks in hebology and transfiguration. Even though I knew how the year would end, it still made me feel like I’d just drunk some hot chocolate on a cold winter day.
I hope you’re having a good end of term, and will be looking out for the next chapter!

So Eliot is getting married? Who knew squids had arranged marriages! So should we be expecting some squidlets next spring?
The part about the unicorns always made me sad. Just the fact that innocent lives had to be lost for Voldemort's sake.
Brian's lucky he didn't go to Hagrid's the other day, or he might of had to see what Harry saw.
Oh no! Brian's wand is broken! He's going to have to get a new one soon. It's a good thing exams are over, eh? And at least he won't go without magic till then. So very awesome! What exactly, gives him the ability to tell when Albus has returned? It's obvious that Minerva can feel it too.

*giggles madly* I can’t believe Brian was teasing Malfoy and his croney like that! He nearly got into a fight too. They would’ve deserved a good punch in the nose. I liked watching Neville be brave. You don’t see much of it before book 5, but Brian brings it out in him. And as expected, Albus too, is able to make him feel at ease.
Now that Brian knows who his parents are, it almost feels like he’s in between. He is a student, but his parents trust him as if he were an adult, as demonstrated by Albus’s conversation with him at the end of the chapter.
