So...Lupin is the prisoner, and Gran is scared. Does that mean that Lupin was supposed to be secret-keeper for the Longbottoms? Hmmm...we knew in Book 2 that Sirius was free and helping Harry buy school supplies. Can't wait for Chapter 2 and see what information that brings. Great start!

Author's Response: It feels to me like I spent much of the first two fics leaving a trail of breadcrumbs leading up to this point (including Sirius, Scabbers and one or two less obvious ones) and now I'm released to reveal everything! The Three Broomsticks-type chapter which will reveal Lupin's back story, at least from the wizarding world's point of view, will be chapter 7, which I haven't written yet (although I know what's going to happen). I'm mid-way through chapter 6 at the moment.

It's LUPIN??? Le gaspeth! So does this mean that Sirius will be the DADA teacher? Wait, no, don't tell me. Great beginning, and I can't wait to read the rest ;]

Author's Response: I'm glad I was able to surprise you! I've had this twist up my sleeve since day 1 (when plotting the series this was about the first thing I came up with) and only now am I able to reveal it. Chapter 2 is also a biggie, with the ominous title "The Wolf at the Window".

hmm...while I was waiting for this chapter to get validated (by the way, it's a very nice intro into book 3) I was thinking about who the mysterious killer would be. I thought about Remus, just because I didn't know who else, but poor Remus, he wouldn't hurt a fly! And, in the lack of Professor Moony, could this possibly open the door to Professor Padfoot or not? So the whomping willow scene can happen....hmm...well this could get interesting....I can't wait until Chapter 2 gets here....you don't know how excited I was to see this up!!!

Author's Response: Of course we know Lupin wouldn't hurt a fly, but he's a werewolf and prejudice was always going to tell against him, as you'll see. As for your other points, all I'll say is chapter 2 has perhaps even more startling revelations than chapter 1!

Great start! Poor Lupin, though. Can't wait for the next chapter. :)

Author's Response: Thanks! I agree, poor Lupin, but it had to be done. Sirius escaped because there was no Fidelius Charm on the Potters, but I needed a replacement and Lupin was the obvious choice.
