This update made my day. I am just waiting to Jackie to figure out the Potter's "secret." I feel like she may not figure out the truth of it, but she may get pretty close.

I can't wait to find out who the killer is!

Author's Response: Thanks.
Will Jacqui ever figure out what's really going on? You'll have to wait and see. More soon(ish)

First...Yay for an update. Second...I enjoyed the insight into the investigation and the good time Jackie obviously had with Ginny. Great chapter. Third...i hope Mary gets put in her place again. Fourth...I hope the next update isn't too far away. I am sitting on the edge of my seat already.

Author's Response: First: It's about time, sorry.
Second: There will be alot more about the investigation in the next chapter, which will be another interlude.
Third: What do you think?
Fourth: the next chapter is already 1000 words, but I'm also working on Hunters and Prey.

This is well written and the story is believable. Charecters stayed true to how they were originally written. Points for making me get teary eyed at work.

I was so happy to see that this story was updated again! Totally made my morning.

Another great chapter. I really liked how it was Ron who managed to free to girl. Lestrange was sufficiently cruel. Potter and Weaslys quick thinking was quite in charecter.

I must say I really really really really enjoyed Mark and Lavender's first meeting.

It seems that capturing of Lestrange' and its aftermath leads to so many helpful changes in the Auror protocol, love it. I really like that.

I could go on and on, but I best get back to work.

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.

Ron's rescue plan is one of the few things which have survived from my original outline for this story. The circumstances of Mark and Lavender's first meeting was always their, too. But in the time between starting the story and this chapter the method of Mark's arrival changed completely.

There are two chapters to go, and you're right about the changes to Auror protocol.

Summary: Past Featured StoryYuletide: ‘tis the season to be jolly! Unfortunately, for four and two-thirds Potters, jolliness is in short supply. Perhaps it is the season of:
Monkeys; fish and chip suppers; shopping in Knockturn Alley; a werewolf wearing glitter lipstick; a Moon in an eccentric orbit; Dung; snow; and a jolly fat man with a white beard.
Hopefully everything will work out.
Consumer Warning: Like many Christmas gifts, this may contain nuts/nut traces.
No Father Christmases were harmed during the writing of this story.

Perfect timing! I was just re-reading Beard-Hunters the other day and was wondering if you were going to give us readers a christmas treat.

This story was very well done. I loved hearing it told through Annie's pov. And I must admit, Santa-Hagrid is now one of my favorite Hagrid descriptions- right next to FurryFace from Tales from the battle.
Great job as usual

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.

I’ve been rereading Beard Hunter prior to posting it on another site, and I’ve made a few tweaks. I supposed I should upload the edited version here, too.

I really should have given The Last Marauder some credit, as it was her(?) rather darker story “Why I’m Afraid of Spiders” which emboldened me to write from Annie’s perspective. In fact, I will.
