Mostly because I keep wondering each time when Harry sets his wand on fire, (or at least sets the tip to smoking) when Madam Pomfrey is going to mention "niffins" to him.
The other purpose of this thread is to say "hi, amazing fic, I didn't shotgun it but that's mostly because my kindle's battery couldn't keep up."Do you know what a Niffin is?"
"It's when too much runs through you. Consumes you. Only the magic is left, but you're not you any more. You're... lost."
The rest of my sleep-lack-addled-mind is thinking about the potential parallels between niffins and patroni. Having said that, I'm super excited to be caught up on this story because of the really smart people discussing and debating it, and … going to bed.
