Review:Pheonix Potioneer says:
You did very well with Hagrid's accent! I am impressed, even mine wasn't that good!

I don't think the person is Blackburn. I think she is just a nice lady who has had unfortunate things happen to her in the past.

I think it is much more likely that the person was a student. Maybe not one that is very homesick though. What was the point of sending Albus swelling solution? Why didn't they just send Albus poison? You've certainly got me stumpted!

I don't think the person has to be someone who witnessed the Chamber of Secrets either. Anybody can easily just find out all about it, there's got to be a book about The Chamber of Secrets. ( As long as it's not by Rita Skeeter! )

I'm eager to find out! So keep writing!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review and for complimenting Hagrid's accent. It wasn't QUITE as hard as I thought it would be. I read some of the passages in the books he appears in, but yeah, I'm sure there are some mistakes in there.

His accent is definitely a kind of rustic English one. I was thinking somewhere around Devon, but then I thought maybe it's Northern. I'm not sure. I've heard it before - on TV, I mean, not in real life - all right.

And yeah, Blackburn definitely had something unfortunate happen in her past, whether she is guilty or innocent. *laughs*

I've her whole background pretty much worked out. I've a character file on her even longer than my one on Albus.

One hint as to what's going on with her, which may or may not be any help: there is a reason why Hagrid got a little annoyed about people harassing her. Think about things Hagrid might feel strongly about. *grins*

As regards not sending Albus poison, the person may not be a murderer, you know, particularly if it IS a student. Even Draco couldn't bring himself to kill Dumbledore and he'd joined the Death Eaters at that stage.

There is also a clue as to why the person may have used swelling solution. And that clue is a slight indication, maybe not to who it is exactly, but it should narrow the field a bit.

And yeah, you're right. There are bound to be books about the Chamber of Secrets. But they'd probably focus on the people who were attacked and Ginny almost being killed and Voldemort's involvement, rather than who stumbled upon the graffiti first or Filch's demand that they be expelled. The fact that Harry was blamed by some other students WOULD probably be discussed, since he is Harry Potter, but it'd probably take a bit of research to find out all the details, which would indicate an interest in the Chamber of Secrets in the first place and not just that it was chosen at random.

Not that they'd have to know somebody who'd actually been at Hogwarts at the time for that. It could be somebody who supported Voldemort and or somebody who wanted to scare people by making them think there was something else in the Chamber or that Voldemort might have yet another Horcrux.

Anyway, even if they DO have inside information, it doesn't help much, since anybody could have had a parent or aunt or uncle in say 7th year when Harry was in 2nd. And the teachers were either working there at the time or could easily find out from a colleague.

I've seen you've a new chapter up. Will go and read that as soon as I've a chance. Sounds like things are getting interesting.
