Yeah, Harry, get it engraved in stone or something: NO TABOOS ON UNFORGIVABLES!! Hehe, this is hilarious...

Chapter: Taboos

Really loved the basic plotline, this is a story that could be taken so many places. However, it is quite poorly written. I suggest spending a bit more time on it, you could have yourself a brilliant story!

Author's Response: I appreciate the feedback, in what way is it badly written? I do tend to have trouble taking an idea and actually making it work; unrealistic dialogue is definitely a problem for me as I have trouble getting inside others' heads, as it were.

Chapter: Taboos

Shouldn't it detect the actual curse, rather than the word? *smiles* I mean, if someone did it nonverbally, the taboo wouldn't catch that, but it should catch the magic of it. If the ministry did that, I think it would be better.

Anyways, I didn't mean to pull it apart and dissect it like that. I had a fun time reading this and I was laughing, wondering how in the world the Ministry never foresaw the problem!

Does anything sound like Voldemort? Perhaps not in English, but in French and Latin something might... :) His Taboo was probably more refined, though, being a great wizard and all.

Okay, I shall stop talking. Great story!

Author's Response: Detection of the magic itself can't be done. The Trace does it, but that doesn't work for adults. As for nonverbal, the Unforgivable Curses are hard as it is (consider what the fake Moody said when demonstrating them) and very few wizards would be able to do them nonverbally, which is considerably more difficult. Even Voldemort said the incantations if in a situation in which it didn't create a big tactical disadvantage.
