Oh my goodness, you have done it again. This was an amazing chapter. From the discussion between Severus and Draco, to the finding of Regulus protrait, you have added more and more layers to your story. I feel bad for Draco, he is a product of his upbringing and even though he spoke out against he still loves his family and does not want to lose them. He, just like Harry, are children caught in adult issues. My heart goes out to the both of them.
I also think that the ending of this chapter was so sad that I had tears in my eyes: "And it was in watching this dejected ghost who was really no more than a shadow of himself, it was in thinking of that long line of sullen, despairing portraits, that Severus realized: The house of Black had been extinguished this time. Extinguished and cursed, buried with all its secrets, large and small, shameful and noble, those little secrets that had killed this family as surely as a Black family was finished, and no shadow could do anything anymore to change the fact of that now." Very profound but also very sad.
Thanks for the wonderful update. I look forward to your next update.

Thanks for updating. This was a good chapter that advanced the story line for destroying Voldemort.

Quite a few Blacks in the chapter. It would be intersting to live on in a way through a portrait. Keep up the good work!

I know the story is already written so this isn’t actually a suggestion, but I can imagine one obvious way for Snape to regain his position with Voldemort. Like any double agent, he needs to provide some genuine useful information, namely the fact that Harry Potter is now an Animagus. And that his Animagus form is a stag, like his father. No one is ever going to look for a stag curled up in front of the fire in Snape’s potions lab, nor will anyone searching for a stag suspect a stray cat.
Lucius: Adopting strays, Severus?
Severus (shrugging): Actually, it adopted me, but it isn’t annoying so I allow it to stay. Do you have anything important to discuss?

I loved it! And I especially loved Severus! Please update soon! :)

Why does Snape have a manor in Surrey named after his father the Muggle mill worker instead of a dingy terrace house somewhere in the vicinity of Manchester? If the French version of this story was written before Half-Blood Prince, why are there references to Severus's friendship with Lily, which was revealed only in Deathly Hallows?

So glad that Regulus is finally getting some of the credit actually due to him! Thank you for updating.

Oh, wow! What an INTERESTING chapter! I really loved this one! Please update soon!
| Cirrat chapter 22 . 11/15/2010
Oh, I definitely hope for more.
Brownie points for the psychological approach, both in Snape/Harry relationship and in the torture (not many authors take care to work with that into such a detail; the usual approach seems to be "torture is nasty and we shall not speak about it", never mind that it puts holes in their story).
I will be on the lookout for the next chapter (and possibly the next and the next and...)

I like this story. It keeps me curious about one thing, then another. I waited for AGES to find out the identity of Severus' new Mark, and was pleasantly surprised by Draco's actions to reject the path to Voldemort. I'm interested in what Lupin and Snape have as far as plans for their charges, and how Loki will come to trust Remus. That is, if he even can, especially once they give him that suppression potion.
J'essayerai lire cette histoire en francais, mais je pense que ma vocabulaire n'est pas assez grande qu'elle etait dans le passe.
Et j'ai un question: Dans la traduction francais de Harry Potter, le villain, il s'appelle Voldemort encore? Beaucoup de noms de place en anglais sont vole de francais, comme Baton Rouge, Pend Oreille, ou Coeur d'Alene. Ce serait tres bizarre, en anglais, si une place s'appellait "Red Stick," "Earlobe," ou "Awl's Heart," meme que Voldemort ou "Flees Death." Ces noms en francais, ce sont typicals?
J'espere que vous pouvez me comprendre; je ne sais pas comment utiliser les accent sur l'ordinateur. (_)

The chapters I read are well written, but I've honestly read so many stories about animagus and Severus and Harry that I could not fully enjoy your idea. Perhaps if I read more I would have become more entraced, but as it is, I was bored of the idea.

I can't wait 'till you update, please do it soon. It's an amazing piece of work you have here, genius really. And completely different from other stories out there. Keep up the awesome writing, and update soon.
