Really, I have no good excuse for why this chapter has been so long coming. I’m very sorry to those who have been waiting patiently. I will do my best to finish the last two chapters before Deathly Hallows.

You know what think I have never seen show up in Harry Potter fanfiction? Cricket. I have no idea of the attraction people have to watching professional cricket since any game people play for five days in a row only to more often than not end in a tie seems rather pointless to me. However, cricket played in the back yard or on the beach with family and friends is great fun. So, cricket is making an appearance.

After spending my morning finishing a depressing fic, I went shopping and bought a new coat and it’s gorgeous. Well, actually it’s rather plain looking, but it fits wonderfully and is incredibly warm so I really love it. And now I don’t have to look like a homeless person when I go outside in the cold.

I was just watching TV before and there was three adds in the last add break for the new Muse album, Black Holes and Revelations, which as it turns out is coming out on my birthday (best birthday present from a musician ever). Everywhere else it is coming out on the 3rd. I suppose it’s a time zone thing. But with all this publicity, I want it now (I’m being a good girl and not down loading the leaked copy).

Now I have to go and work on the next chapter of Growing to get it up tonight or tomorrow. Its been a while so I hope the people who have been reading it don’t think it’s abandoned. I'm really glad I'm writing a Neville fic, he’s such a fascinating lead character, neither a conventional hero or an anti-hero, just a kid with a tonne of flaws and a good heart. Really, I am just so sick of anti-heros. Dark and brooding has just been done to death in every form of entertainment and I'm rather bored with it.

Look kids, a new chapter of growing. Of interest is that this chapter contains within it my first ever action sequence.

Rating: PG-13
Chapter Summary Neville starts his first day working for Andromeda. Tonks visits and has words with her mother and Luna writes a letter.
