The assault teams and the Druid leadership make decisions; Harry and Hermione take a chance. As for Draco. . . .
- I do not understand how Hermy can be Harry's best friend, be attractive, be supportive, etc. and Harry not be strongly attracted to her. Also, why Hermy is not attracted to Harry. I found that those girls I was best friends with were also the ones I was most attracted to in terms of a "life mate."
The whole "I think of you as a brother" just makes no sense to me.
Good story. For the power Harry has helping, there is no excuse for the International NOT to be involved (if they could, unlike the UN, be of any real help).
Author's responseHarry and Hermione are attracted to each other, just not in love with each other as the story starts. It takes a while to recover from weasel fever, I guess. . . .
- So death eaters enforcing Voldemort's will are bad and should be captured or killed… but the Aurors enforcing Voldemort's will are cool? why would they not at least capture them? they are currently serving the enemy. if they know they are going out to investigate the disappearance of snatch squads they are collaborators at best.
So Harry was a 27 when he went to America and was lucky but his rating was never said.
Author's responseThe aurors/enforcers captured before May 1 would have been executed in Justice. Everyone captured May 1 with a Dark Mark was executed on the spot, everyone else was questioned and either 1) executed that afternoon; 2) held to be later turned over to Shacklebolt later to be tried; 3) released (like Percy). It was only those people.ministry workers press ganged by the Death Eaters (again like Percy) who were let go
- I still think the fate if Draco Malfoy is one of the most chilling parts of your fic.
However, on the other hand, I have often wondered why we didn't harvest the organs and other useful parts of condemned prisoners, especially multiple murderers. Thus, allowing the murderer to atone for the lives he has taken by saving others.
