New chapter! Thank you for updating :D
I'm sorry, I would have reviewed sooner, but something happened. See, funny story: I just spent the last 20 minutes trying to remember the password I would have used for an account here so that I could leave a review, for surely since I had already left one before I had to have created an account for that ... only to realise 5 minutes ago that I actually didn't have one because I can leave a review as a guest x) Ah memory, when you fail us!
But anyway, let's focus on something actually important ;)
As usual, this chapter was great. Sure, there was no James, but the mystery slowly unravelling before our eyes (though it only seems to thicken right now) is making up for it just fine.
And the question everyone is asking? Who is brewing all those potions!
Now at that point, I really don't know. I feel like it could be anyone: from Sam (I hope not, that would be horrible given all Seth has done for him), to Vala (I hope not here as well, but she certainly is shady ... although that's probably exactly what you want us to think, just like with Sam, to keep us away from the real culprit), and even Lucas (he did try to approach Seth about the potions, and his apology could very well be a ploy to lure her to him ... or not). Like I said, I really don't know anymore :P
As for Albus, I don't think it's him. I can't really see why he would do that, especially if he knows (or suspects) that James likes Seth. I mean, yes there is the business with his weird girlfriend, but I just don't feel like it could be him ... And call me House-prejudiced, but I don't really see a Gryffindor (at least I think he is one, but when I tried to check by browsing a few chapters I coudn't find the information. I'll just have to rely on my shaky memory :P) brewing illegal potions to harm others and then let all the blame fall on an innocent Ravenclaw, even less if this Gryffindor happens to be Harry Potter's son :P But then again, it would be a twist. (If my memory proves to be just as effective as ever -note the sarcasm- and he's actually not in Gryffindor, ignore what I just said about the House ;P)
If you wanted us to doubt everything, you certainy succeeded ;)
Oh, and the scene between Seth and her mother was really sweet. I hope we'll see more of their relationship later :)
I can't wait for the next chapter :)
Author's Response: Haha, never mind, confusion is my middle name so I get where you're coming from :)
So glad to hear that you liked the chapter despite its James-Sirius-Potter-less-ness :) Also, I'm actually thrilled that you are confused as to who might be behind the potions ring... I tried to keep it as mysterious as possible, putting as many people under suspicion as possible :) And house-prejudice IS a real thing :D I pride myself on being a rather judgy Gryffinclaw so that's fine :D (And yes, in my story Albus is in Gryffindor and not in Slytherin)
I'm really happy you liked the chapter and thank you so much for reading and leaving a review (even without an account :) ). I know I keep saying this, but it just means so much to me to get such feedback. It's the engine of the story, really :)
P.S.:Your review got me really excited to work on the next chapter, so thank you for that :)
