The last behest of a doomed witch. AU one-shot
Delicious, delicious rantiness. It's like the Ranting Swede, dipped in magic and dusted with suicide.
Damn, but that's an impressive farewell. I do love the way she spoke the truth and dared them to respond. 'Twas a most delicious and enjoyable rant.
I'm not sure if this was meant to be a parody. I can't imagine her ever saying this, but that might have been the point.
Ranting is always good, especially when it's that concise and well-delivered.
It's a shame that something like this was never done in canon. Even though I can't see Charity Burbage doing this, I could see someone like Hermione or another muggle-raised, 1/2 blood (within reason) that had enough contact with the muggle world. Reasonably, this scene would have played out in a more Independent! Harry's mindscape, while Harry gave Tommy-boy visual examples of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagisaki, for a taste as the ultimate weapons... As of 1945 that is.
What a way to go out. I wish Rowling had done something like this. (or at least a short quib just before Harry let Voldy whack him)
