Reviews for The Case of Missing Whisky
Luke-Bones chapter 1 . 1/20/2013
firewhiskey, perhaps? Well, at least i know that the family is a pureblood-sort. That much is obvious.
MrEmperor chapter 3 . 9/2/2012
A really well-done story. I did suspect the brand of whiskey involved, but fun all around. Thanks!
Murazor chapter 1 . 9/1/2012
The story is pretty short, which is adequate since Doyle's own writings tended to be short affairs. It presents a solid Holmes, a good Watson and offers an interesting suggestion about certain oddities of the lone character from the Potter cast that shows up. Well written, with good dialogue and the right vocabulary for a period piece. One of the best things I've read in recent times. 9/10.

Great fun! Thanks for the enjoyable read!
America's the Hero chapter 3 . 4/4/2012
Meh, so I was wrong about it being Hagrid. In my defense, Albus had grey hair in the 90's. That was when Harry was in school. The 40's was when his hair was red.

That was hagrid! It's wizarding wiskey! Maybe fire wiskey! The rest of the family are wizards and they want to keep the muggles out of the loop! The reason that the aunts were smug when it was said that there was only one key was because of alohamora! I feel awesome now.
America's the Hero chapter 1 . 4/4/2012
This is really well done! Having not read Sherlock Holmes, I can't tell if you copied this from something or not. That's how good it is. I love your style of writing. It's not like most on here, and that's a really good thing.
Advent of Insanity chapter 3 . 7/27/2011
Awww... Poor Watson! I must say, though, your style is quite similar to Sir Doyle's.

Bravo, my dear, bravo

This is really good. I assume that it is a different 'Albus Dumbledore' because you say there is no timetraveling in Chapter 1.
Hijokugei chapter 3 . 5/8/2011
Ah, firewhiskey! It'd be interesting if there was a way to do that without the magic...
SashaBatTzion chapter 3 . 1/2/2011
This was an incredible story! I really enjoyed reading this. Great blending of the universes, and just long enough. I was surprised by Dumbledore- it's so easy to forget he was young once, and just how old he is! There was only one typo I saw- "We have no place in their world, and we have no place in theirs". Great job!
Isis the Sphinx chapter 3 . 1/14/2010
Oh, wow! One, I love the crossover idea, and that it is so nicely executed. Not too outlandish, and a great link to both worlds. And Watson's reactions to it all is very realistic.

Keep writing!
Elianna Eldari chapter 3 . 9/15/2009
Gaul is divided into thee parts, and so is (in innacurate translation of quoque on my part) my story.

sum miserabilo Watsonem neque amatorem neque amicus Albus, etsi intellego quid rationis est.

I admire your skill at capturing Holmes, and, indeed Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (though I must canfess that I prefer the original, "The Solitary Cyclist", "The Dancing Men" and The Hound of The Baskervilles being particular favorites of mine).My humblest apologies for my slaughter of that fine language, Latin.

Where does Rookwood tie in, or was that a coincidence?
Kirinin chapter 1 . 4/13/2009
This is excellent! You've struck on the voices of Holmes and Watson so well - the feel of the dialogue and even the punctuation is *just right*.

I'm already thinking Augustus Rookwood, but that's because I followed a HP rec here. So, the wizards were determined that no squibs or muggle-borns receive any of the inheritance? I never envisaged crime in the wizarding world, but this is precisely the sort of thing that could happen in a mixed household... I'll bet there are even wizarding fairy tales about the squib born to a wealthy household, or the daughter of the first, muggle-born wife being cast out by her pureblooded sisters! :)

I'm really enjoying this. On to the next chapter!

MarbleGlove chapter 3 . 3/20/2008
This is quite wonderful. It's especially wonderful for balancing the characters so well, and using Watson to address the questions that come up when thinking about wizarding-muggle interactions. I'm very impressed. Thanks for posting.
