- Bloody hell indeed, Ginny! That is going to be a fun confrontation.
An interesting if slightly cliché clash between Harry and the portrait of Albus Dumbledore (something that, in one form or another occurs in many independent!Harry stories). However, this was as well written as any and stands on its own merits.
Of course, having read DH, it gives this particular breed of HP fanfictions a different light because manipulative!Dumbledore is now canon. It was all to ensure that Harry was just strong enough to destroy the six original Horacruxes and then die to destroy the unknown seventh and then someone else (I suspect that Dumbledore originally had chosen Snape for this latter role) would finish off ol' snake features. He even manipulated Ron and Hermione to help and hinder Harry in certain ways so that he would only reach a certain level of power. He never anticipated that Harry would master the Resurrection Stone and use it to defeat the Killing Curse...
This story keeps getting better and I'll keep reading.
