Thank you so much! I did a fair bit of research on Aurora and, this image of her stuck with me, so I based her character on that actress. Making her young was taking a chance, but seemed to fit with this image, and I decided she would have to be a strong woman to stand up to the stresses of the age. I even pondered making her a Ravenclaw, but decided Severus wouldn't have been as open with a non-Slytherin. The celestial code was fun to create, although I admit I had to do a lot of hand-waving to make it work in my mind . *g* *shivers with you* Yeah, Dumbledore with information like that would have been lethal!
