I got really excited just with the SUMMARY. Hugo time!

...yeah, okay, I really do love Methy now. Such a sneaky little thing! And I was JUST THINKING as Scorpius said it, "I bet Methy still cares about Herbology homework when everyone's going down with a mysterious illness!" And sure enough...

Aww, I love the Scorp/Hugo friendliness. And I love that Hugo's so adamant he's going to help the search in the forest, too. Though he'd better not go down with this illness when they're in the middle of the forest...

Darkness. Suspicious. I'm going to suggest it's the place where the ritual was happening. Hold the phone DEMENTORS WHADT? Oh man, now it's really hotting up and now I'm really confused!

I said that Hugo would go down with the illness IN THE FREAKING FOREST. Marvy. Rose will NOT be amused.

I very much enjoyed the Scorp/Methy interactions here. Interesting to see what Methy makes of Scorpius, given that the two haven't crossed paths MASSIVELY before now and so there aren't really any antagonistic feelings between them to influence an opinion.

Well, not MUCH antagonism.

So. Overall suggestions are that the Dementors have had something to do with the illness. Well, that's as good as confirmed, isn't it? I'm intrigued as to HOW, because it's surely more than just an extension of their effects on a human. HMM. Good chapter!

Author's Response: Yeah, this chapter was originally going to feature Matty Doyle, because Matty Doyle has been straining at the leash over not being one of the Big Five, but I succumbed to the wisdom of not writing ANOTHER OC when it's unnecessary and the siblings needed some love. Lily's had some so it was Hugo's turn - and I don't regret it, I loved writing Hugo in this chapter.

Methuselah's that strange mix of 'sneaky' and 'thoughtless'. He didn't really think of it as going behind anyone's back so much as anticipating what would happen and so, logically, he needed that map! And yes, in his head, Herbology homework was a perfectly good lie. He was quite refreshing to write as a counterpoint to Scorp who, as you say, isn't influenced by 'politics' but isn't Albus. Considering 99% of people irritate Methuselah Jones, Scorp is actually doing pretty well.

No. Rose will NOT be amused. AT ALL. As shall be revealed next chapter.

It is indeed a logical conclusion that the Dementors are in some way connected with the illness. Muwahaha, I really like this puzzle, it's one of my good 'uns, so I look forward to laying it out.

Cheers for the review!
