[The man’s hoarse, ruined voice says, “I’m tired of life.”] Hermione only wishes that her perfect memory had failed her, that her brain had repressed the memories. She's too tired to hate.
- Yeah, that title, "To Grow Weary", works quite well for this story. It's a rather chilling little one-shot with Harry & Hermione surviving when all the Weasleys and, apparently, most of their friends didn't and with the measures they seemed to have found necessary to survive and win.
Author's responseThanks! Who would you like your one-shot to be about?
- For a piece of, as you said, drunken profoundness, it was bloody good. I have a thing for stream-of-progression poetry, and this piece is now copied onto my backup drive. The weariness (yes, i got it too) was excellently portrayed, and the utter devastation of their worlds and persons were ...chilling.
Gods, i wish i was that poetic in my ramblings.
Author's responseThanks so much for the lovely review!
