Yay, new chapter up.
*laughs at David being proud of his idiocy*
And that's interesting about magic circles, that they were actually used by witches and wizards in the past, I mean. I wonder if they'll end up being significant or if that's just a throwaway comment. I suspect the latter, since as Albus said, Zajecfer didn't pour the potion in the shape of a circle or anything and I very much doubt they'd anything to do with his disappearance. But it's possible you're doing a JK Rowling on it and they'll be relevant in some other way later on.
There should be a comma before after "I think Rose was talking about how Zajecfer might have turned invisible" and not a full stop, as "Art whispered" is still part of the same sentence.
I don't really think Zajecfer disappeared off Hogwarts' grounds. I don't think he just became invisible either. I think he disappeared to somewhere else ON Hogwarts' grounds. Especially since, in the first chapter, the older wizard talked about "when you finally leave Hogwarts" (or words to that effect), which kind of implies he's AT Hogwarts now. Scary thought, but however.
I think David is absolutely right. I didn't think of the entrance being invisible to everybody other than the person who poured the potion, but that would makes sense. I thought it might just have been so small he could slip through it or it might be like the barrier on Platform 9 and 3/4s and the potion made it possible for him to simply walk through a wall.
Rose's suggestion about the potion making everything within a few feet invisible is good too, but I don't think it's right.
*pokes Rose* Regardless of who's right here (and I think David is), he is definitely not being an idiot. It's a valid theory. I think she just doesn't like the suggestion that anybody could challenge HER theory, especially David, who she doesn't seem to have much belief in.
The Daily Prophet should have a capital "D" and "P" as it's a title.
Yikes, it'll take them forever, if they have to read the description of every potion mentioned in the library books.
Nor would I necessarily assume Zajecfer must have done something bad enough to be in the Daily Prophet. He could be only starting his campaign or he could be in them under his original name, but it's definitely worth a try.
It would probably be better to make "We know you’re not interested in the dark arts, if you were you’d be in Slytherin, not Gryffindor" into two sentences. "We know you're not interested in the dark arts. If you were, you'd be in Slytherin, not Gryffindor."
I don't know if that's necessarily true anyway, since Peter was in Gryffindor, though of course, there's no real evidence he'd any interest in the dark arts. He may simply have been to scared to oppose Voldemort. Though that's not very Gryffindor either.
Oh, and in the 4th last line, you've spelled "lose" as "loose".
Oh, I'm looking forward to seeing what they find out when they start researching.
Really good chapter. Sounds like things are about to get even more interesting.
Author's Response: About half of the conversations they have turn up in later books, and about half of them don't. It's actually quite funny to myself, since I know what it all means and it's importance, but nobody else does. *evil laugh*
Thanks for pointing out the mistakes. Most of it is habits that I gained when I was younger, and I'm trying to break them.
Rose is a very stubborn girl. She does raise some interesting points, though.
About the whole Slytherin being evil thing- keep in mind, Rose and Albus were raised by a very bias family. I believe Harry wasn't as bad, because of Snape, but the rest of their aunts and uncles put into their head that Slytherins are evil.
Thanks so much for reviewing! And I love your opinions!
