The Victory Day Victims by Sainyn Swiftfoot
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 11]

Summary:

Two successive Victory Day parties; two survivors of the War poisoned. Similar circumstances, similar poisons, similar modi operandi.

 

Henry Chumly is an old, callous, unaccepting, misogynistic and in every way completely unsavoury drunk. Almost coincidentally, he also happens to be the best detective at the new agency of the Ministry, the the Cadwallader-Hundert Agency for Response to Malmagic.

 

Padma Patil is young, pretty, talented and excited to work at the Ministry, cracking cases and nabbing criminals. Before her application is accepted, though, she has to spend the customary few weeks working under a professional detective. She expects ennui, tasks far below her talents and frustration; but nothing anyone had ever told her prepared her for Henry Chumly.

 

This is the story (if you ask him) of how Henry put up with the bint and solved the case single-handedly or the story (if you ask her) of how Padma stunned everyone by not only managing to avoid murdering her utter bastard of a superior, but also being the first probationer to play a pivotal role in solving a case. This being a mystery, and in tune with the essence of mysteries, if you wish to find out the truth, you’ll have to read on till the end.

 

[chaptered; OCs and minor characters; comic mystery]

 

This is Sainyn Swiftfoot of Hufflepuff writing for the 2011 Mysterious May Challenge in the Great Hall, Prompt 2.

 

The views expressed by the utterly hateable Henry Chumly are not those of my own. Please do not take offense.

I have just read this and I may be talking to thin air. I cannot believe it only got ten reviews. It was brilliant. It should be a series.

 

The Flawless Caper by Liandrin

Paper back cover. Big breasted woman showing lots of cleavage. Smoking gun. Is this pulp Harry potter fiction?

Author's Response: I suppose it does have a pulp fiction theme to it. No big-breasted women and guns, though. :P

 

Unspeakable by C_A_Campbell, Northumbrian
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 23]

Summary: Unspeakable, Michael Corner, is researching time, events, and probabilities. While testing his newly-invented RANDOM system, he stumbles upon an unspeakable possibility. Former supporters of Voldemort, all acquitted for their crimes, are dying of so-called natural causes. Intrigued by the possibility that these events might be connected, Michael investigates farther. But what he discovers will test him and raise questions that all his probabilities cannot answer for him.

What is justice? And what is unspeakable cruelty?

Does Dudley know whether he is coming or going? Good read.

Author's Response: Haha I'm not sure I understand the question. I do see Dudley as a very conflicted character, which would be what drives almost his every action. Thanks for commenting! Cheers :)

More importantly, whodunit? Were those blue beads on the floor before? What about those two mugs on the table? Why is Pansy sitting on Blaise’s lap?

Theodore Nott investigates.

Much More Than A Game by Hypatia
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 87]

Summary:
“Lord Voldemort has never had a friend, nor do I believe that he has ever wanted one.”

Discover how even Voldemort’s cold and callow heart was once broken beyond repair. This is for anyone curious about how an imperfect love warped and twisted a corrupt young man into the Dark Lord.
