Oh my what an emotionally draining chapter, I'm a 42 year old male with 3 grown kids and I here I am struggling not to lose it. When Harry said "Snuffles?" I had to fight my emotions. As stated previously, thank you for letting me escape to the world you created. You are a master. Can't wait for the next update. - Erik

Lady Alchymia replied:

Oh, Erik, you're such a sweetheart.  I'm so touched that you feel so much for poor Harry.

Big hugs!

WHAT! NO! PLEASE PLEASE UPDATE SOON! you can't just leave us like that! Please update very very very soon! I love this but a cliffhanger dang it! Great chapter though!

What a mess. Harry is really badly hurt. Thank goodness Hermione knew what words were more likely to work. Asking Harry to taka bath after what just happened was as bad as asking him to jump into acid! Poor Elizabeth. She must feel so guilty. I like the way you are handling this. I look forward to more of this story. I really hope someone rakes Snape over the coals for this one. I am really enjoying this version of the story. The first one was good but I think I like this one better. Thanks for writing and updating so consistantly. pms

Lady Alchymia replied:

Hey there,

Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts :).  Harry definitely is in a bad way right now, and you are correct about his aversion to getting back into a bath!  It is a very good thing that Hermione knows Harry so well!  Elizabeth is definitely feeling guilty and Snape will be dealt with in an upcoming chapter.  I'm really relieved you like this version better!  Thanks for that :).

Amazing chapter! Oh my god! I love love love your Remus/Elizabeth ship, I kind of have a thing for Lupin (as you may see)
Very well written the whole accident scene, it kept me at the edge of my seat. Hope you update soon!

Lady Alchymia replied:

Hi Alex,

Thank you very much!  I must confess a certain fondness for Mr Lupin myself lol.  I'm delighted you felt suspense through the accident :).

Cheers!

This chapter was brilliant!
Poor Harry!
I really hope someone deals with Snape.
Looking forward to the next chapter!

Lady Alchymia replied:

Hello Fate,  (that reads so good lol)

Thank you very much for your compliments :).  Rest assured that there will be more on Snape in an upcoming chapter; Harry's new protectors aren't about to let him off the hook (they're just a wee bit busy with Harry at the moment).

And I'm glad you feel sorry for Harry!!  It is a rotten situation for him to be in!

Cheers,

Lady Alchymia

i must admit to liking the first version a lot more than this one. in the first version you have him playing the piano, which i like very much!! and he's very good at it too, because(even though he doesn't know that until the very end) of the transference of those memories of lily's!! and now al of a sudden he's playing the guitar, and having to learn!! other than that it is still a good story!!

hope to see more of the sequel psychomachia!! love that your exploring the whole susan thing!! especially the paint incident was very good!! and i loved the first chapter very much because you let harry do what harry does best, make trouble ;)!!

well enough said, better be off reading other stories. bye bye

Lady Alchymia replied:

Hi there,

The piano was certainly a pleasure to write, so I sympathise with you there.  Once the whole story is done (school year included), I'll be able to explain how I had intended to use the piano (in terms of plot twists), but now it's gone, I'll get there another way.

I'm looking forward to getting back to the school year too! lol

Many thanks,

Lady A

your story is fantastic...but not long enough.I cnat wait to see where you are going with this.

Lady Alchymia replied:

You're very kind, thank you.  Longer?  LoL  Well, chapter 13 is about the half way mark in the summer story, so there's a fair bit of story left to tell yet.  I really hope you enjoy it!

Cheers,

Wow, that was brilliant!
That was gut wrenching and all too real. As an ex-nurse I've looked after burns patients, and your writing brought back a few not-altogether pleasant memories.
Just one thing I need to ask. Did Snape deliberately design the route to the "panic room" that way - to hurt Harry?

Lady Alchymia replied:

Thank you so much!  That's very generous of you to say.  I really appreciate hearing that it connected in some measure with real-life experiences, though I'm sorry if those memories were painful to recall.  Remind me nearer the end of this story to send you a deleted scene (a really deleted scene -- that didn't even make it into V1) that explores a little the relationship between healers and patients and family members.

Did Snape deliberately design the Panic Room that way?  Ah ... well, you'll discover the answer to that in a couple of chapters :).

Thank you for sharing something of your own experiences with me.

Kind regards,

LA

Man, I wish that this was H/Hr, that moment with the two of them in the hospital just shows that while it may not be romantic love, I'd wager that she loves Harry more than anyone else, not Ron or her parents, Harry is and will be the force in the rest of her life. Again a scary part here, and got to say that Snape, well I don't see any big redemption for the selfish piece of trash, and wish that he coulod finally get some way to have all his vitirol spat back at him.

Lady Alchymia replied:

Hi there,

You're not the first to wish Hermione was in Harry's romantic sights LoL.  Platonic love is certainly a love for a lifetime--powerful stuff.  I really love writing about love--all kinds of love: platonic, romantic, paternal, you name it and I'll be there sticking a microphone under the characters' noses.

Snape, Snape, Snape ... wretched sod.  You're quite safe in hoping for some developments there in an upcoming chapter :).

Kind regards,

Lady Alchymia

Very nice, the emotions drag you along up and down while never getting melodramatic. Hermione would be the only one Harry listens to, he trusts her more than anyone else, as he should because she is the only one to never leave him.

Lady Alchymia replied:

Thank you very much indeed!  I enjoy a dose of melodrama just as much as the next person (in fiction and in real life), but it can be wearying if too full on all the time (or maybe I'm just too lazy to feel passionate about everything all at once all the time lol).

I'm really glad you saw those things in the interactions with Hermione and Harry -- it was definitely intentional on my part.  I wanted her to be the one who could get through to him because when you are completely vulnerable and out-of-it like that, you do want the one person you know you can absolutely trust.  It doesn't mean Harry wouldn't have come around with Remus after a few more attempts, it's just that Hermione knew so intimately exactly which buttons to push (or not push) in getting Harry on side.  And asking him what he wanted to do rather than telling him what he *had* to do was a big part of that.  Mind you, Hermione is normally quite happy to boss a healthy Harry around, but she knew she needed to get through to him on his terms this time.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts :).

I really do enjoy the Harry/Hermione relationship in this story, even if it isn't (or wasn't in the original)a romantic one.

Lady Alchymia replied:

Thank you DrT :).  I think Harry and Hermione's friendship in the books is pretty special.

Cheers,

Good work. Moving some of the explanation about the salts here was a good idea.

Lady Alchymia replied:

Thanks kindly!  The salts was certainly a big area that needed to be cut down a lot.

Cheers,

Lady A
