I'm sure Harry appreciates not having to cope with the madness at St. Mungo's when he's recuperating from a work-induced injury. It's good, too, that he and Duncan are safe, even if they're not "fine." I also like that Harry and Ginny are to the point in their relationship where they automatically turn to each other for comfort. While he has had that with Ron and Hermione to some extent since he met them, what he has with Ginny is far stronger. Now all he has to do is get his mind out of the gutter when she mentions tiny black knickers!
Ginny makes a good point when she empathizes with Tim Travers. You don't have to like someone to compare their situation with your own. I think Astoria sees this in Ginny's actions, so that's why she opens up to Ginny about the situation outside Hogwarts. I wonder if Astoria heard what Siobhan said about her brother…
Overall, another excellent chapter. Well done.

6: Recovery and Reversals (Author Response)
LOL - Harry is 18 years old. His mind lives in the gutter I think as our characters grow and mature, it's only natural they'd turn to their partners first, and both couples are on the way to getting there. Thanks for taking the time to review, Arnel!
