AN: Noooooooo!! You waited so long, and I give you a short, mediocre chapter : P I'm telling you, school really sucks! They gave me homework even over the holidays! Two 1000 word plus essays, a bio project and a huge science project plus a whole bunch of other stuff *pout* stupid school, don't they know I have fanfiction to write?!?! *sigh* hopefully I'll be able to get another chap out before I go back to school, but seeing as that's in about three days…I'll have to try really hard! *grin*

Thanks for reviewing!

Deity: Thanks for the review, they make my day! Ahhh, such a symbiotic relationship ^^

Wink At J00: he he, breathe Steph! (pronounce that?? I… don't think so. ^^()) I'm so glad you liked it ^^, hope this chapter wasn't too bad… I'll try really hard to get another one up soon!

Amarantha Liriel: yeah, it does sound like Hagrid, but it's just not the same personality… ho hum, It'll come to me eventually! ^^ I'm glad you think I'm doing a good job integrating current and backstory, it's one of the thing I'm finding pretty hard ^^

Them Girl: he he, well, was it worth the cliffie? I'm glad you think so, but I think Sev's really getting out of character now… *tsk tsk* I'll have to watch out for that more ; )

Riverlady: HAHAHAHAH!!! Yes! Yes! That would be so brilliant! Ohhh… yes! I should soo do that! :D Excellent idea! And yeah, I have read it (and I loved it too ^^)but… this guy's sorta more sympathetic with Harry… and I seriously considered having the voice be Sirius (winces at unintentional pun) but… I don't know, the accent isn't quite right… hmm… oh well, it'll come to me ^^ hope you liked the chapter ^^

Jemini: if a month was forever, this last wait must have been an eternity, *winces* sorry! Hope you still like it! (did the chap answer your question?)

Izean: yeah, the accent is like Hagrid's, but the personality isn't quite right… oh well ^^ So… you crazy yet? He he, I tried hard enough didn't I ^^ thanks for reading&reviewing ^^

Saavik: glad you like it, it's so much fun to write ^^, and about the voice, well… the accent is like Hagrid's but I don't see the personalities being the same… oh well, hope you liked the chap^^

Charlie YuY -_- : hmm… heeeeeeeey, that might work! I'll think 'bout it- but that's a great suggestion, thanks! I'm really glad you like my fic so far ^^

Areana Shtiei: well thank you ^^ and though it does sound like Hagrid, I don't think it's him… oh well, hope you liked this chap ^^
