Downbeat Ending. People seem to like this one best.
- Oh great, Dumbledore and Snape have been fired, YES. You can tell that I can’t like them much. And Amelia Bones is the new Minister of Magic.
Author's responseBad news, I'm afraid- that chapter was a separate ending to Year 1. In the main story, both are still employed.
I don't care for either of them that much either, but I can't think of a good way to fire them just yet. Besides, you need good and resourceful villains for a good story.
(#) GryffindorDragon 2008-04-17 01:26:33 PMI don't know quite what to make of this chapter (aside from how much better it is than the Bolivian Army ending -- as entertaining as that chapter was). I like how you got Dumbledore, Snape, and Fudge canned. But the notion that Quirrell would have been remotely able to get the stone out of the mirror is so off, even for an AU story. Nevertheless it is a fun read.
Author's responseI don't blame you. I wrote it as a lark, and it seems to be the least favorite chapter of many people.
I thought that might happen, actually, while I was writing the multiple endings. That's why they were all meant to stand alone. It will have nothing more to do with the story.
- Some parts of this are good like Dumbles actualy getting thrown out of office if a kid died because his stupid stunt with the Stone. That being said I really didn't care for teh stone bit.
This was Quirrel, a man who lost to Harry who didn't even pull out a wand in canon. Yet he's fighting good as voldemort in his own body. Some how not only got away but killed several people when probably the best organized and equiped force ever came to stop him. I mean had several seasons aurors, huge harme of kids, teachers etc more then almost any other story I can think of and he not only got away scott free but he killed key people.
I don't like that it's like replacing Quirrel with Voldemort and even that is questionable since he kept losing to children like harry before.

Why has the Potter's will*s) not been read to Harry and acted on?
Sirius Black needs to be given a fair trial.
Author's responseWow, I'm a bit surprised that people are still reading this one, since I haven't updated it in nearly a year.
Remmeber, this story is only in second year. Sirius is still alive and in Azkaban, so his will hasn't come into play yet.
- Wasn't it strange that somehow, in canon, nobody asked any questions about the troll or the stone? The grapevine knew all about the happenings, but no parent or "law enforcement" officials ever looked into them?
This ending has a little "reality" to it lacking in canon.
