Thanks for writing,
Author's response- Hey, as long as I'm taking my meds, I'm relatively ok... Though they won't let me have sharp objects... Bastards.
- and what's the point of a reality if you can't stretch it?
(#) slayersfan01 2008-01-22 03:11:43 PMHmmm, maybe the "Dark Lord" mentioned in the prophecy isn't Voldemort but Dumbledore instead. Dumbledore has Voldemort beat in the evil category already when this fic started, but seriously outclassed him as soon as he defended the rapists and their actions. He wasn't even disgusted when he learned of what Snape did, only worried about their reputations being destroyed.
Looking forward to the next update!
Author's response- That's one way of looking at it I guess. I just hope that I don't tic too many people off with my final resolution to the Tommy problem...
- In situations like this, I truely wonder why Harry doesn't stoop to assination. I don't see the benefits of keeping either Dumbledore or Snape alive, vs arranging for an accident.
I have to wonder what lengths Dumbledore will go to protect Snape and the Slytherins. Is he going to do a little obliviation to stop the investigation? Some other means of control? I've been expecting him to go down hard, but he keeps withstanding everything. Hence my earlier question on why they don't just deal directly with the problem.
Author's response- In an early draft of the plot, that's exactly what happened... a series of 'accidents'.
- Then I decided I decided that I was going to attempt a Harry story in which Harry doesn't kill anyone. Not even Tommy.

Looking forward to the next thrilling chapter.
Author's response- Dumbles has been the top dog so long he believes his own press. Harry's going to use the rules Dumbles holds so dear to destroy the old fraud.
