The aftermath of the attack on Ron and Hermione; Lucius makes some mistakes; the students visit Hogsmeade; and Dumbledore tries another lecture.
(#) electriccatnd1 2009-05-02 11:42:56 PMWell written as always with your material. I have to say I am curious which group and how you spin who did all of the training with Harry over the summer. As always, its nice to see you taking the world that Rowling created and giving it the dose of realism that it needs and deserves.
I'm looking forward to finding out whom Harry's working with. And, of course, to watching the further progress of Harry, Hermione, and Luna's relationship, but you probably figured that out already. ;-)
Dumbles' attitude is amazingly clueless, but it does fit with canon. I'm amused at the idea of Harry's mentors making bets on his true intentions.
Ron/Romilda is amusing and appropriate. They seem to actually be good for each other.
- Ooh, another great chapter! Really going to make Dumbledore think about his non-actions in this one.
It does point out that Dumbledore isn't really trying to curtail nasty actions by the so-called Purebloods against the Halfbloods and Muggleborn and their escape from the Pureblood society of Britain. Now, someone is and he wants to bitch about it.
Boo-fuckin-Hoo! Go Harry and his supporters!!
Can't wait to see what happens next.
- “Why do you think you get to define ‘the greater good’?”
That, more than any other one thing, is why I dislike Dumbledore. Sure, I get that in the end someone has to make a decision, but anyone else would listen to other points of views and arguments before making that decision. Dumbledore seems to believe he doesn't need a 'devil's advocate' to discuss things with.
- As a wise man once said: The only good Bumbles is a dead Bumbles.
I think the man stopped being rational the last time Gellie buggered him.
I can't wait to meet the rational folks that helped Harry, with just a simple question of where were they for so many years?
Dear Travellor: These minors knew full well what they were doing and were more then willing conspirators. Once you're over 13, you really need to accept the consequences of your actions. Even before that you know right from wrong--right is how you want others to treat you and wrong is how you do not want others to treat you. We have had too many decades of Mollywobbles and their cries of "they're just children." Also, given magic, they are not in any long term pain--unlike those they were complicit in having beaten nearly to death. If your child was Hermy, how would you react to the children? You just wouldn't have the capability to give out the justice they so richly deserve.
