    Nice escape scene. What happened to the good wand Alexandria had again? I forget. Her shitty wand got taken, her disobedient wand is the one Charlie has, and she gave her best wand to someone else? or buried it in Larkin Pond?

    Interesting chapter. Unclear how this ends if she stated a breakout. That's a big deal. I have trouble seeing her ever returning to Charmbridge

    Classic Alex morality. Love it. She's such a mythical-esque character. The moral courage of a hero with the Achilles/Hercules flaw of temper tantrums and pride. Well done.

    I still don't understand what it is about Sonja that makes Alexandra dislike and distrust her so much... It seems like she's been portrayed all along as a generally decent person and friend, but Alex acts like she can barely tolerate her.

    I feel like she's the AQ version of Lavender/Parvati but I'm totally expecting a few of those predictions to turn out true so I'll try and remember them although Anna was right that y'know vague predictions are likely to come true.

    About this chapter, I really enjoyed this description of Alex's character
    "Because you're secretive and untrusting," Drucilla said, "and perversely protective. You think keeping your secrets is for our benefit. I think Julia is well used to this treatment."

    "Valeria certainly experienced it," Lucilla said.

    "And your friends as well," said Drucilla.

    Alexandra shrank a little. "It's not that I don't trust you," she said. "But some things can't be talked about."

    Lucilla and Drucilla stared at her for several long moments. Then Lucilla said, "Father made you his Secret-Keeper when you were an infant, to protect the Thorn Circle. That was a terrible burden to put on a babe."

    "It's not like I could object," Alexandra said. "I don't even remember it."

    "Obviously not," Lucilla said. "But I think it left more of a mark on you than either of you knows. You are a keeper of secrets to this day, Alexandra."

    Alexandra folded her arms. Then she said, "Wait a minute. How do you know about me being a Secret-Keeper?" She stared at her older sisters. "Did he tell you?"

    Lucilla and Drucilla looked at each other, and back at her.

    "He didn't have to," Lucilla said.

    "We were there," said Drucilla.

    Excited to finally get to the Wizard Decathlon. Think it'll be fun, especially if there are a bunch of D&D references
