Review for JEDI POTTER


(#) Wolfric 2011-01-11

Great chapter. I still don't understand the point of the business with Trelawney. If Harry expected her to act the way she did and couldn't let her escape; why not tank her in the first place? Oh well. I would bet that Aberforth could provide some more dirt on Albut, if he were so inclined. Thanks for writing. W.

Heya Wolfric.

Harry did sort of expect Sybill to be unable to overcome the compulsions, but he's an intrinsically fair man. Here, he had a sick, abused woman in his care, under some powerful compulsions of a purpose unknown. He suspected the compulsions would force her to spy on his group and report to Dumbledore. Since he cloud do nothing to remove them, he wanted to give her the chance to try to overcome them on her own. That's why he put her on Tatooine. She wouldn't recognize the place and with what he told her of the planet, she would think there was little way to return to Earth. He also needed to know how effective the compulsions were, in case Albie had placed them on anyone else...which he had.

He ended up tanking her, because, despite all his precautions, she proved to be a flight risk. As a flight risk, she could compromise security. If she did manage to cross the desert, she'd be taken to the nearest hospital(or jail, depending where she ended up,and from there, the news would leak out. When Albus heard of it, he's put two and two together and find a way to return her and her acquired information to his control. It wouldn't be the worst thing to happen, but it would be dangerous to his group.


Aberforth: He's going to have fun shooting at the Jedi Students. Providing dirt will come later, when Rita publishes her upcoming biography: ALBUS DUMBLEDORE: Fact or Fiction?
