Harry watches over Hermione and Rosie. Hermione decides to clean out her flat. Harry gets a clue.
- Moving along nicely here and I wonder if that "perp" would've had much success trying to possess Harry? Given all that Harry's been through and the occlumency and mental skills he's acquired getting to where he is now, I rather suspect the "perp" would have a much more difficult, if not impossible, time posessing Harry and it certainly would not have been able to remain hidden. It's going to be interesting watching him suss out what's happening and then prove it sufficiently to save Ron's name and reputation.
Author's responseThanx, Ron's rep is definitely in need of rescuing. It'll be interesting indeed to see what happens when the perp tries to possess Harry.

They WILL get there eventually, right?
Author's responseThanx, and yes, fair question, they will get together eventually.
- So Victor's involved and seemingly the tool is still in there house. Wonder of Elves can sense them as I have the feeling Kreaher will be visiting the flat soon.
AS for why?
We'll see soon won't we!
Author's responseThere is a Bulgarian connection, but it may or may not be Victor.
Yes, we will see.
(#) Wonderbee31 2009-02-11 07:01:22 PMGood section, and liked how even in this harsh time, Hermione still keeps her sense of order, and the way she set things up in the piles was pure in character to me. Will look forward to what happens in Bulgaria, and what this will mean later on for the couple.
Author's responseThanx, as always, for reading and reviewing. I'm glad you feel our (GuitarGurl and my) portrayal of Hermione is authentic - she reminds me quite a bit of my own wife, who really is that well organized.
She's scary, brilliant, but scary.

This is a horrific and troubling story.
Looking forward to seeing the rest of it. I hope guitargurl is coping well.
Author's responseAint it always the case? I love your description of this chapter, horrific and troubling, and yet something to look forward to.
I approve, of course!
GG is coping as best she can, thank you for your kind words.
- So far i like the story. and i most liked the list of harmony from chapter three (funny and informative).
Now i noticed in chapter one you mentioned GuitarGurl i was wondering were i could find the story that this is based off of, I have become addicted to fan fiction and want to read any that are recomended by authors i like reading
Author's responseThanx, the "scripture verses" were born of a response to one reviewer who objected to my offing the two youngest Weasleys in the first chapter - but as this is important to the story it had to be done, sorry Weasleys.
GuitarGurl has published two short works, the original Battered Hearts and Forbidden Fruit, a one-shot we co-wrote using Philip Pullman's The Amber Spyglass.
Both can be found here on FicWad.
- I think you have things moving too fast and too slow. Too fast to clean out Ron's things. Really, if he was possessed, perhaps there would be signs among his things. And where is the rest of the Weasley clan? And frankly, even if they would allow Harry to do the investigation - he should have a partner.
And there should be more of a concern about Hermione's safety - what if the possession was aimed at getting her killed off. At least new wards - and staying with Harry not at the crime scene.
Author's responseThank you for reading and reviewing. Good points here all around.
Yes Ron was possessed, the manner of the possession left him in control most of the time, but alcohol, even small amounts, would allow the cog to take full control.
The rest of the Weasley Clan is there, in the background. We’ll see Bill shortly.
Harry is not going to leave Hermione unprotected, never fear.
