Okay; first off, I am going to explain the reactions of the other operatives in the Training Room. They have no idea that this is a prospective sixth-year at Hogwarts, let alone that it's Harry Potter - all they see is a prospective Unspeakable chewing up the Training Room like a dragon at a sheep station. Next, the Ministry cafeteria; again, they have no idea who the unnamed Unspeakable is. Lastly, the Order meeting; they have no idea that Harry is now being trained as an Unspeakable, let alone that it was Harry's Portkey that set off the new wards at the Burrow. (Also, notice that Tonks (that *did* know) didn't tell them any of it.)

Another great chapter. My only critique would be that in future stories you use more abreviations when a character is talking. It makes conversations stilted and long winded.

Glad to see Tonks getting so close to Harry. Harry is a fast learner and his magic grows much faster than I would have thought possible. Good writing.

The comments of Marcus and Horace make a great deal of sense in context to the story. I would fully expect a training room (a kill-house would be the closest Muggle term, and that is special-operations, which again fits the DoM's operatives) to be charmed for full sight and sound. Also, Marcus shows why he, not Horace, runs the Department (not even Horace knows everything about prospective recruits). Horace is indeed more of a Positronic Snape (no, he is NOT nice, or touchy-feely; however, his attitude is a motivator, as even other Unspeakables commented on while observing Harry Cut Loose). The Unspeakables have Absolutely No Idea who Harry is (or even that Harry is still a student at Hogwarts): all *they* see is someone with a full clip of mad *and* a seemingly bottomless bottle of Magical Energy. Petunia (earlier in the chapter) saw Harry's Aura Come Out, and it absolutely frightened *her*.

The practical working out of your theories of magic during Harry's shield training was an excellent piece of explanatory writing

Horace is the positive version of Snape - you love to hate him but you learn, and you'll eventually like him in spite of himself.

Fine chapter all around.
