Harry rescues two girls and one runs away to join him
- Oh, my!! I -almost- feel sorry for the resistance, they had a tremendous ally and let their blindness and predjudice drive him away. I wonder how long it'll take Amelia and Minerva to mend fences there. OTOH, I don't feel at all sorry for the purebloods who flocked to Tom's banner nor for Tom himself; it's got to be hell to find out that you're nowhere near as "all powerful" as you thought.
I liked the rescue scenes, Harry's always been good at that kind of thing and the episode at the Weseleys clearly shows that he's not going to turn dark, despite his power and anger, he's got too much compassion to turn that way.
I like the recruiting of the Weaseley twins, that is -not- going to improve things for Tom's forces. I do wonder when Harry's going to meet up with the loyal remnants of Her Majesty's forces, -that- could be quite interesting; the results could be even more fascinating, esp. if he receives a royal equivalent of a letter of marquee and reprisal.
Author's responseThe Purebloods are in trouble...
I tend to have him lose it and end it too quickly. I wanted to kill lucius slowly, but even though I wrote it 4 times, each time it ended with Harry atomizing them... Ah well.
Everythings better with Boom!.
- Wow, at first I didn't like this story. I had only read the first chapter and I didn't like the Luna you portrayed. Not that you didn't do it well, I just didn't like my vision of a blissfully serene Lune being destroyed like you did. But after these two chapters I have to say that I really love this story. The way you describe Harry being the reluctant hero with the women and the ruthless killer with the Death Eaters is awesome. The way you have Hermione and Susan and Fleur, I actually feel bad for them and what they had to go through. I also feel bad for the resistance, they had Harry, the most powerful wizard since Dumbles and they up and go against him? If I was the resistance I would be falling over myself trying to do whatever Harry wanted. They have lost an ally and I can't wait until they have a confrontation between them. Anyways, I really enjoy this story and can't wait to see more.
- I think Hermione turned around a bit too quickly. She should be doubtful of Harry's motives (that may be seen in later chapters, of course) but perhaps willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Still, an excellent chapter.
