So I definitely read this yesterday but didn't get around to reviewing, it seems.

Finally! Scorpius is released from the spell. Now we can hear his whining again. ;) I love how Albus is so in control, and all about the action. I'm glad you brought up the terrorist attacks and reminding the Muggles of them; it kind of makes it more real, you know? I felt so bad when that boy told Al his mom was in the building, so I'm really glad that she's okay.

Poor Al is just setting up for failure, isn't he? I'm kind of amused by his use of a mobile for taking photos though. Comes in handy for quick things like that.

And then comparing Scorpius to his grandmother! God, the two of them are great together. And Phyllis is fantastic, she thinks she's so superior to the boys and I love it. And Bogey-Wogey? I mean, really? Bahaha, that's great.

I love how Al doesn't want Scorpius to have the last word but then HE DOES! Oh, Al...this is just beginning and I'm already loving their interactions. So, so good.

Author's Response: Oh god, you like Scorpius's whining? :P Don't let Albus hear you, or else he'll do a bunk and leave you to solve the case with Scorpius instead. not that he could leave this case, not with the way that it has captured his interest, not to mention his sympathies. It was important to have him see the aftermath of the bomb first-hand to bring home how serious it was - for all that this is a humourous story, I don't want it to lose sight of how serious these things are (it was something lacking from "Murder on the Hogwarts Express" that I want to fix in this story).

Albus has very little self-confidence, poor guy. It's like he sets himself up so as to avoid being disappointed, which doesn't say much about his successes this far. The use of the mobile is a bit of a cheat, but I'm glad it worked (no one else has mentioned it so far, strangely enough!) - my assumption is that, by this time in the wizarding world, young wizards are making use of the "muggle magic" available to them and perhaps acting more kindly to muggles in general. :P Harry's influence and that sort of thing.

It's fantastic that you're enjoying the humour and the characters - it is a lot of fun to write this story, even if it takes forever to get into the right mood for it, and it means a lot that you're having fun reading it. Thank you! ^_^
