Nymphadora gets a wand and returns to England,
- Okay, THAT was abrupt. I'll be watching for that sequel; this part has more loose ends than a shedding Grim.
Somehow I think the Zauberstab-style wand design, with the helical braided active-element core, has less to do with Tonks' success in battle than a particular hair which was substituted into the braid. Well, and the matter of who fabricated the overall wand. Something about that person having ownership rights over the target's blood.
Somehow I think that, when Harry gets around to building a wand for himself, it will class as a major tactical weapon. Here's hoping his ladies can remind him to create and heal/repair as well as destroy with it.
- Too true, but I love the fact that one of Harry's wands not only tore Voldy butt to piecec but decimated the DE's so much they became fertilizer!
Hope the sequel will be as good and wondering who or what will be he main advisery for our Trio!
- Yeah, an abrupt ending, but I love the bit about how the "hand of the other" played into this, between Harry fabricating that wand and putting one of his hairs in it, it definitely was "by his hand", even if not his physical hand. I'm sure Tommy-boy will appreciate the irony involved. :D
I'll most definitely be looking forward to the sequel as the British ministry starts to rebuild and finds that most of the best people they want are overseas and have no desire to retrun.
(#) jabarber69 2009-05-17 06:39:47 PMso I take it since harry added unknownling one of his hairs in tonks new wand, and it was her that hit volide with the reductor and blew a hole into him that started the whole chain gang thingy that eventually killed him and is deatheaters he was drained their magic while trying to save his life thingy, even though he wasnt their he still killed volide with his hair which is a magical core of a wand that killed him...damn this is a catch 22 type thing, interesting story but why the sudden paling of the girls, or did they thing that they would have several more years of fooling around and having sex before they became the baby making machines of legend! and you said their is a sequel, so I take it volide isnt dead? is there more horcruxes or something.... and what about dumby wand, that bones incinerated, was that the elder wand?
Author's responseComing up with a new way to kill Voldemort while staying within the prophecy was an interesting mental exercise.
The snake mentioned by the security guard was Nagini and was the last of the Horcruxes to be destroyed.
The Death Eaters didn't die, they lost their magical core. A fate far worse in most of their opinions. That little bit will appear in the sequel.
As for the girls paling.... They were happy dealing with having babies in the abstract, "Some time after we finish schooling I'll have a few babies". Suddenly it became one of us is going to be pregnant tomorrow morning. Thinking through the implications to their schooling and everyday life caused them to become pale.
I'd also like to thank everyone for their kind words and advice. I've improved because people took the time to be critical but not mean in their reviews. Thanks to all.
- Man that was too abrupt, I liked the story but the ending was just too abrupt. I'll reading the sequel just like everyone else and hope for a better ending. Please don't think that I'm flaming on your story just felt that the ending was brought about too quickly. Overall good story though.
