Jesus Christ, Thicknesse is absolutely diabolical in this. I mean, the whole plan...one would think that taking people out of time would render the past impossible, and I imagine that this is Thicknesse's goal, though it didn't work out the way he'd planned. I was also struck by the ways in which Unspeakable Gaspar claims that things are impossible to change, and yet helps them along in his own way. Very Dumbledorian!
The world you've built is so vivid. So vivid. And I love the very slow burn you develop between Harry and Viktor. There are so many lovely details.
I'm so glad I read this. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
