May I say that you two are brilliant, but evil? I nearly killed myself laughing several times during this chapter, especially at the end-'It wasn't their fault that a wizard wouldn't understand the chemical term for an explosion.' So true, so so very true. I do enjoy your writing and I get it, even the disclaimers...they're like what happens when my friend Meg and I have a sleepover.

Haha! I loved using the Wizards' ignorance of Muggle stuff against them. Yep, they have a moral dilemma: how far do you go in the fight? I'm with Harry and Logan for the answer. :) The Slytherin girls being envious of Ginny's relationship with Harry is interesting. Lots of other good stuff, but I'll leave it there.

I don't know what problem people have with Ginny. Ginny's pretty cool, actually. The trouble is that she's a terribly underdeveloped character in JKR's canon. I would think that the love of Harry's life would play a bit more of a role. She's not a shrew or a fan-girl--at least not by the time she stopped crushing and just was herself, as Hermione counseled. She's a tough little witch who loves her wizard and would do anything for him.
Now...this chapter was really intense emotionally. Yes, I admit I saw the flight in the jump jet coming and that Ginny would love it, but the way Harry handled his chat with her about feelings was very sweet. I could feel the uncertainty and downright fear in Harry's words. He was only just learning about love and it was still a mystery to him. That's got to be terrifying.
Harry's handling of the Blackbird--impressive. I loved Lupin's fainting episode. LOL Big, bad Werewolf Marauder laid low by a kid with a sick sense of humor. So much for the Marauder...
I had to laugh at Harry's underhanded comment about Hank McCoy hanging upside-down reading Shakespeare. I forgot he did that! And I'm still laughing at how well you integrated Logan into this story. The consummate smart-aleck (I would have said the other word, but decided to mind my language). Whenever he draws his Adamantium claws, I can hear "thwickt!" I have a feeling that, at some point, a few DEs are going to find themselves shredded like cole slaw by those things.
Dumbledore still doesn't get it, does he? He's manipulated so many people for so long, it's like he doesn't know any other way anymore. Go Minnie! I swear she's going to have to beat some sense into him.
Harry's panic attack. Wow. That was emotional. Extremely powerful adolescent wizard with Mage sight and a Mutant power freaking out. Ouch. If Harry hadn't had that shred of focus, he would have destroyed more than that table. Dumbles is lucky to still be breathing at this point. I hope Scott vaporizes that stupid thing if Dumbledore is too attached to it to disable it.
I expect a full recovery from Lupin. He's a Werewolf, so he heals quickly. Still, burns hurt and can lead to infection and pneumonia. But between Jean and Poppy, that shouldn't be an issue.
Well done and I shall read on.

Oh dear. Logan's got a warped sense of humor, but it's about time the DEs get a wakeup call.

"I'm an Exothermic Reaction device!" *Snrk* Brilliant!

“I'm a exothermic reaction device!" - superb!
Thank you for another great chapter!

Excellent chapter. I think the main points about this story I like the most are the moral and ethical dilemmas the good guys are facing. The ambiguities and trade-offs, the burden of making those choices is significant, as is the need to find a way to bring the three worlds together, bloodlessly if possible.
Great job, and thanks for all your hard work.

Actually, in WWII, 20 mil doesn't even scratch the MILITARY DEAD!
Together with civilian dead, the figures vary from 60 mil to 80!
You might argue that some of it was in a war started by Japan, not by Hitler's Germany, but still the figures are much higher for the deaths he's directly responsible to, not to mention, his alliance with the Japanese played a major role in their plans for world conquest.

OH MY GOD. Brilliant. Absolutely Brilliant. *Bows before the authors* I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy.
Ok so now that, that's out of the way. Just wanted to say how impressed i was with this chapter. I love the direction the story is going and i totally look forward to seeing what the next installment brings. Keep up the amazing work and congradulations again on your masterpeice.

So POMONA (not Ponoma) Sprout's got a Mutant in her House and she's a Creevey. Thank goodness she's not as flaky as Colin or Dennis...
I understand why Harry's keeping his Mutant power a secret. If it's the thing the Dork Lard knows not, it has to be the thing that the Wizarding World knows not as well. I think it's hysterical that even Dumblydork doesn't know what it is. LOL
I LOVE LOGAN! I have always been a Wolverine fan. He's my favorite X-Man (and it has nothing to do with Hugh Jackman, I'll have you know). I love a snarky man... "Whore crutches?" OMG! ROFLMAO! Very clever.
I shall read on.

Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know how much I enjoy your stories. Thanks so much for the entertainment!

Story is progressing very nicely with realism but grittiness.I can only wish updates came more often

The talking bomb reminds me of something in Starship Troopers, except the room full of locals new exactly what it meant.
Good chapter. Dumbles is really going off the rails, here. I see good guys getting hurt if he isn't neutralized fast.

As always, a superb chapter. It's always a joy and a treat when we get the e-mail advising there's a new chapter, and this was no different.
I have to admit, the section at the end made me giggle like a four year old girl. The idea of a bomb shouting at people what it is, and they just stand there like monkeys, scratching themselves, was absolutely priceless.
Thanks for sharing, Bob & Alyx

I've no witty response or other critical comment. But after the day at the office I've had today I really enjoyed the boom at the end. I think I'll go watch the Enterprise explode in Star Trek III now. In all seriousness, I'm enjoying watching Harry think his way through his problems instead of stumbling along blindly and lucking his way into a solution. Thanks for taking the time to share this tale -- it's a blast. No pun intended.
