Review:MargaretLane says:
The whole Northern Irish situation had a LOT of situations like that. Internment without trial was introduced in Northern Ireland to deal with the terrorism and a lot of innocent people were jailed. I once wrote a song fic about Sirius. with one of the protest songs about those cases. I needed to leave out a line that mentioned the actual name of the case and another that mentioned "Irish men and women", but everything else fit.

*laughs at Albus thinking Harry is taking them to the hospital wing out of habit, because they end up there so often*

And nope, never considered Boone the murderer. When I found out it was a werewolf hiding in the Shack and Polyjuicing as Young, my thought was kind of "oh right, so that has nothing to do with the murder." I guess I kind of figured you wouldn't make a werewolf the villain. Plus, I can't see what his motive would be. Not that I can see what motive ANYBODY could have.

The comment about long missions again has similarities with the character I mentioned in my last review. It's not exactly the same, but still.

And Harry's words put rather a different complexion on things. Why I always have to compare things to history is a good question, but this sounds a bit like Eoin O'Duffy, who was head of our police in the 1920s/early 30s and tried to encourage a coup when a new Government he was opposed to got elected. It didn't happen and the new Taoiseach had him fired, but offered him a position in a less sensitive department. O'Duffy refused the other position and turned to fascism. Yeah.

And I'm not at all surprised Hermione would have arranged something.

*laughs at Kendrick putting the Shrieking Shack down to Dumbledore's eccentricities* That's a good way to explain it away all right.

And I LOVE Matt's comment about Gryffindor courage having an ounce of stupidity.

Ahhh, now I'm even more anxious for year six, although at least you've already hinted Bethany is a witch. I was wondering about that.

Did you mean to say that Kaden and Matt "still focused most of their attention on brewing." Something like "pranking" would seem to make more sense there.

And we still don't know who the murderer is. *ponders* I'm sticking with my librarian guess, as I can't think of anybody else.

You finish up well. I always find the last couple of paragraphs of a story difficult.

And *grins at the title "Tipperary Hill"* I was IN Tipperary on Thursday.

And I like the sound of a Neville/Hannah fic dealing with the effects of the war.

Sorry to hear about your former roommate's cat.

Author's Response: I definitely thought everyone would assume Boone was the murderer. But I didn't want a werewolf to be the murderer, even if he did have motive, which he didn't. Plus, it helps the plot of the 6th one not to have the murderer caught in this one.

I always compare literature to history, too. It's so interesting to figure out the parallels.

Dumbledore's eccentricities is a good way to explain anything odd at Hogwarts. Nothing would be too bizarre for Dumbledore. Gryffindor courage definitely has an ounce of stupidity, and the boys demonstrated it here.

I can't wait for you to read the sixth! I may have meant to say pranking, but I'll have to go back and look at the sentence, as Matt doesn't really do much pranking or brewing...

The murderer will most likely be revealed in the sixth one. I find the last few paragraphs hard, too. I'm glad you liked these.

I love the name Tipperary Hill. I actually didn't even think about the real Tipperary Hill in Ireland, as I took the name from a neighborhood in Syracuse, NY, where the traffic lights are upside down so the green is on top, to show off their Irish pride. I'm not sure when I'll post that story, as I'm now focused on the sixth Albus. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
