More Q&A time for Harry Potter and the Heir of Slytherin

NateGold: No. Unlike most stories, I'm not going the 'magical bonding' route. Harry and Selene do not have any bond forged through her ingesting his blood or anything of the sort. Now, Selene does owe Harry a life debt, which I'm surprised someone actually managed to pick up on, but beyond that there is nothing 'magical' about their relationship.

Dante 101: I have no intention of using JK Rowlings Deus Ex Machina devices, aka the Deathly Hallows in this story. That's actually something I tried to make obvious without being too obvious in my first story. Harry's wand is a dual cored wand capable of having immense power channeled through it and, let's face it, if Harry's wand were to meet Deathly Hallow wand, Harry's wand would eat that stick for breakfast.

Yes, his wand is that awesome.

Talesfanjmf: Yes, I do know that. I actually read Harry Potter wiki when looking up information on the Trace. I decided to change it. Consider this a part of the story that is AU.

Besides, I always found it odd how Harry Potter, or any muggleborn child, had the trace on them. No one ever met them to perform the spells as far as I know. How could the Ministry put the trace on a child they never met? It was one of the many inconsistencies and plot holes that JK Rowling had in her story that never made sense.

A Tribute to one of Marvel's Sexiest Villains.

I saw that quite a few people noticed Selene's name is the same as the sexy immortal femme fatal in Marvel, the Black Queen of the Hellfire Club.

For those of you who are curious, yes, I did pick up Selene's name from the Marvel Comic book character. Why Selene? Well, why not? I was trying to think up good names that I felt would fit her character, but was having issues. I didn't want to use the name I used in my first fanfic, you know, the one that got deleted for some reason, I wanted to use a name that would inspire interest. Hence, Selene Gallio Dracul.

Update Status:

I actually managed to get pretty far with the 6th chapter of this story yesterday. I went from 0 words to 5,319 words, which I managed to crank out after work. I'm just awesome like that. Ego aside, I suspect the chapter itself will be finished some time today or tomorrow, depending on how my muse is running, though it could be longer if my muses loses motivation.

This chapter will probably be a bit shorter than my last one, I suspect around 8,500 to 10,000 words, which is still longer than what most people write.
