Review:Princess Yamaha Toto Spuds says:
WHAT.

Okay, that was way too good to be true. Snape would never say 'mudblood' so freely. The one time he let it slip in public, it was the worst day of his life. This seems more of the thing that would be done intentionally to frame Snape, which means it's not Snape at all. POLYJUICE POTION. But who would frame Severus? Someone who watched them closely and...okay, my money's back on a Gryffindor. Someone who knows about the enmity between Severus and the marauders, someone who knows Remus and Peter are familiar with the contents of Lily's letter. Someone observing the hysteria. Rosier or Wilkes, perhaps? Maybe that's what they'd been planning all along. Or maybe this is Snape's initiation, and it really is him. Maybe in order to become a Death Eater, this is a rite of passage for him. And he's the one who killed Asher.

I am straining to think of someone outside Hogwarts who could have Floo'd in - or used the Whomping Willow's secret passage?? - or...hmm. I refuse to believe Severus would behave that way, but this is AU so anything is possible, and all of your cryptic responses to my theories have addled my brain's ability to guess. I just know I'm missing something obvious, but cannot think what it is.

What other ways are there to get into Hogwarts? Or to hide? Or...HMM. Maybe it's an Animagus cat or something.

I want to make this review longer but I'm also raring to read the next chapter.

Author's Response: Too good to be true, you say? -strokes invisible ponderous goatee- I suppose it's sort of pointless to keep attempting for an air of mystery, given that I'm about to post the last chapter, but I'll keep doing it anyway.

I will say that you're on the wrong track about Floo Powder! Tee hee hee. Altogether, with all the things we've discussed both here and on Skype, you are VERY close to discovering the true murderer... but not quite correct. I didn't set out to stump people so thoroughly, but I guess that's the occupational hazard in writing mysteries. No matter how obvious I thought/worried I was being, it apparently wasn't so obvious to readers!

-voodoo fingers- ALL WILL BE REVEALED. ♥
