Lovely as always, though I assume Jacqui will be getting curious.

One thing seems off in your otherwise carefully plotted our timeline (though I'm sure it is hard to keep track); assuming Michael Corner is married to Trudi, and got engaged as suggested in "Bare" in the fall of 2004 this suggests he got engaged awfully fast (since he was single as "Unspeakable" and there's no indication Trudi was in a relationship with him as of "It Takes Two").

This may prove I have too much spare time, but your attention to detail is one of the reasons I enjoy your work :)

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review. Jacqui is, indeed, getting curious.

First, congratulations on being the first to correctly identify Auror Trudi Corner! I've checked, and there is a flaw in my timeline. :-( It came about because "Unspeakable" was co-written (and rapidly co-written) for a (still unjudged) challenge. I could not force my entire timeline on my co-writer (although I tried). I'll need to do a rewrite of Unspeakable to tweak the timeline slightly.

Having said that, the error isn't what you think it is. :-D Lavender mentioned in "Bare" that Michael was engaged. But he didn't say to whom, and it wasn't Trudi. That is yet another unwritten minor-characters story.



Zygosis by Northumbrian
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 12]

Zygosis: the biological process of conjugation; the union of cells or gametes.

Life exists to procreate, to recreating itself, being created by many different methods. Because of that urge to create new life, Auror Albus Potter finds himself in trouble.

This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for Round Two (Minor Characters: Harry Potter’s birthday) of the 2012 Madam Pomfrey’s One-Shot Character Triathlon.

Lovely as always. I am, however, not sure how the Aurors understood what Ms. Breeding was shouting at her basilisk.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Interesting observation. I hadn't even considered the possibility that she might be speaking Parseltongue. -N-
