Sir Nick's Deathday party has an unexpected ending, and Dumbledore talks with Harry
- Nice slant on Filch! It's a little thing, maybe, but it certainly shows Harry's new maturity, and the view of Filch being ... nice ... is also a novel one.
"Brother Mo" ... why do I keep thinking of the Three Stooges?
In your "Dumbledore's Army" you held that ghosts had a limited 'death-span', that even their ethereal bodies would eventually pass on. But here you seem to be making ghosts' deathtimes more dependent on their mental stability? Can a ghost, properly motivated, live forever in this tale?
I hope you had a good Christmas!
- I always wondered how a logic puzzle found its way into the protection of the stone, since there is no proof of the wizarding world having any idea what logic is. At least you are still showing the WW as lacking in logic and common sense as it is in canon.
Remember, you can never be too hard or cruel to Dumbles. The man simply radiates hubris and a strong belief that the end ALWAYS justifies the means. In an ideal world, there would be no Snape, Malfoys, or Dumbles (and, probably, no Moldie) in time for Harry's third year at Hoggy.
- Damn, was it this chapter or the last, where McGonagall made the remark about no Slytherin-Hufflepuff couples? Well, no matter. My better half & I are one, so tell her so. :P My Merlin, this is magnificent. And please keep having characters tell off the characters which need it so badly. And please have Malfoy wet himself again. :D :D :D
