This was very well-written and moving. If you take the last two books as a hallucination, there's no reason to think Dumbledore was anything less than the flawed but earnest leader of the light you've portrayed here. I used this link
to kick up the rating for the overall Hutch since ficwad is having its usual dysfunction.
Thanks for writing.
Thank you Wordhammer. Personally I think 'hallucination' is the perfect word.
Though I have seriously suspected Dumbledore from the very beginning, (actually from the end of book one) I wrote this before he openly moved from 'honest-but-bumbling', to 'more-evil-than-Voldemort'.
Thanks for the kick-up.
