I'm back! Sorry for the lull in reviews, I had a bit of a busy weekend. I missed them though!

I have always loved this chapter. The format is so fascinating to me; I wrote a number of short stories based on it when I was younger, actually. It's very true-to-life, the way musing as one writes a letter could go. I like it.

Also: glad they are officially a Pack now, so I can stop feeling slightly guilty that my reviews have spoilers, at least about that. I suspect they will continue to have a lot of spoilers. Although, I know the first time I read the DV, I certainly didn't stop to read reviews between chapters. Too intriguing!

Little bits that I loved (of course a little spoiler-y): Remus' certain tone, that really makes people want to listen to him. I'm pretty sure that gets mentioned again, and somebody said it of Dumbledore a few chapters ago. I remember noting it, and thinking it was another way those two are alike. Also, when Sirius smashes the mug, and they can barely hear it - you don't say as much here, but could it be that he tried a Silencing Charm, and was too upset for it to take? It's established later (much later) that Sirius has a problem with that.

I think Neenie is my favorite character in this chapter. The more we see of her, the better, in my opinion. She just has such a feisty little personality all her own. It would be so easy to write her and Harry together, always (i.e. the cubs were playing in a corner; the children were building with blocks, etc.), and you do that sometimes, but more often you find some way to differentiate them. It ensures that they are separate characters, and adds to the overall cuteness, definitely.

Reading this for a second time, whilst waiting for 'Facing Danger' to be updated, has opened my eyes to a few things.

One, i now get what the hell the prophecys are going on about,

And two, to how good of a writer, if just a fan fiction writer, (but most likely not) you are.

Keep up the good work, and i look forward to reading the rest of 'Facing Danger' in the near future.

from a delighted reader,

Toni Cernosa.

I think that it stinks that werewolves are sterile...tragic for Remus and Danger. :-(

Fantastic to see everyone settling in and getting along as a family. :-D

"Oops."

Single most dangerous word in the English language, that.

Ah, so many firsts in this chapter. I'm thinking now that you should've named it something different--"The Pack," or somesuch--but this works fine.

The joke in Latin was my favourite bit. I loved it though all of this chapter was really good.

Whoah. A whole chapter all about a letter. Long chapter, at that. No too many who could manage that ^_^

Great job. :)

Ch.14 - - The pack concept is an excellent way to arrange this, and then to describe it.

I cannot wait to see Hermione and Harry in various stages of their pre-Hogwarts life.

Such a fun read, and very well written.
