Wow! Wow wow wow. That was my reaction as I finished reading last night. This was so absolutely engrossing it kept me up way past my bedtime but it simply was impossible to stop reading. And today I feel like a zombie but it was so worth it!
Fantastic mystery plot, excellent characterisations, wonderful writing (and especially great dialogue!). I loved what you did with the Elder Wand and I was sure all along that Newlin was Snape, though I couldn't figure out how the hell he could be. And then, wow, what a complex, brilliant way to explain it. And I so loved your meta-ish reference to the Trio's camping trip at the beginning and how it would bore people to tears. *snicker*
Um, I was wondering about something at the end. Would you mind terribly if I emailed you? Just something very minor I'm curious about.
