Plus it would offer some sweet irony that the couple Hikoboshi and Orihime in the story related to this festival get some help from a flock of magpies to meet each other once each year.

So Gosho's gonna have the Organization *help* Shinichi and Ran reunite for a time?

My fanfic account:
Character key for my DC stories:
Yoshiteru Nichimura: Japanese-American CIA agent, Hidemi's colleague and former boyfriend. Known among the ranks of the CIA as "Grim Reaper", from his skull-like face and his deadly short-range combat skills. He has a very good fast draw and he's very highly proficient in the Israeli martial art form called Krav Maga. However, he has no talent as a sniper, and he doesn't bother trying to be one.
Ryan Jackson: African-American CIA agent and director of CIA operations in Japan involving the Black Organisation. He was once good friends with Ethan Hondou, who taught him how to charge at a gunman without getting hit. He was an army chaplain who served in Iraq, seeing combat on numerous occasions, most notably during the Second Battle of Fallujah. He's been a lifelong resident of Metairie, LA, and he's married with several children. He graduated from Loyola University Maryland. His favorite saying is, "It is sometimes necessary to lie damnably in the interests of the nation."
Elena and Atsushi Miyano: Faked their deaths and now secretly lead a "White Organisation" against the Men in Black. Parents of Akemi, Shiho, and Satoshi Miyano.
ELXR-0666: A drug developed by the BO that can revive the dead, the ultimate aim of their research and development of APTX-4869.
Nancy Akechi: Ran Mouri, revived by ELXR-0666 and then shrunken to a 7/8 year old by APTX-4869. Lives with Conan and her two parents, who are unaware of her true identity. Is the sixth member of the "Detective Boys".
Cognac: Shinichi Kudo made a bargain with Elena Miyano: Join the BO in exchange for the drug that could revive Ran from the dead. He became a Black Crow under the codename Cognac, specialising in using his detective skills to investigate matters important to the Organisation.
Antichrist: An ancient hominid species very closely related to Homo Sapiens. They were biologically indistinguishable from human beings, except for the presence of the "Altar Organ", an internal bodily organ that allowed them to replace one of their other body parts, even the brain, with a corresponding one belonging to another person upon consuming said replacement body part. This species went extinct long ago, but they are relevant to the BO's plans today.
Yoko Okino: Boss of the Black Organisation upon the death of Korn, who in turn succeeded Pisco. Codename: Cabernet Sauvignon. Her mother was a member of the BO Council, and she raised her daughter to worship the Ancient Canaanite gods. Yoko's philosophy was also shaped by something that she witnessed as a child, the bullying of one of her classmates that led to suicide. She represents the "young blood" of the Organisation, and her religious fervour sets her apart from the Council, which consists of elderly and middle-aged bureaucrats and businessmen. She sees them as heretics.
Mezcal: Biochemist who assumed control of the APTX-4869 project upon Sherry's defection. He joined the project approximately one year before the events of Episodes 128-129 and the two of them worked closely in developing the drug.

Ran has suspected Conan's ID 3 times now. I don't think she has the will to suspect anymore because she's been fooled by the setup all along as before. Maybe she knew it already and understood that it's NOT good now, to tell Conan about this matter because there has to be some good reason why Conan is acting like that, and so it's better to remain silent. But I don't think this possibility is viable because Ran is NOT made to be this smart of a detective, like a whole lot of other smartass detectives. Next Suspicion Arc I'd say maybe close to the end of the series...that's when everything got unfolded and such.

@End of the story:

The Thing is, that we also thought this of the whole Shinran Lovestory. And then it came much faster than we thought.

Sure, Ran is no Detective, but she isn't an idiot either.(Plus, all the other smartass detectives in the Manga actually found out Conan's secret very quickly. Amuro is an exception, but Shinichi hasn't been on his radar so far, at least for now..) And she already had the theory that their might be a reason for him not telling her during the Cellphone case.

I'm not agreeing with all points on the List made by the OP, since lots of stuff can be explained otherwise.

But there is a point with Ran's behavior having changed a bit. And here reaction to Conan's supsicion debunk at the end of the Eri abduction case felt really like "Ha Ha. Sorry, Deduction Freak, but you used that trick too often. But I'm playing along for the moment..." Or something similar.

Who knows, I simply like to play guessing game regarding DC's romance.
