She could see, faintly, two stocky red heads screaming obscenities as they rushed a group of Death Eaters.
^^Fred and George?

OK, this story gave me chills. Mainly at Dean's 'Do you know how I know I'm brave?' and Hermione quoting Dylan Thomas's poem and Luna's acceptance that most wouldnt follow. Not many stories dont have Harry, and, as much as I like him, I'm glad to see one without The Boy Who Lived. i really liked this, and thought it was great. I'm going to be quoting half the speeches in school for the next few weeks. 10000000/10 {Becca}

My, oh my, Seren. I really loved this. Your characterization of Ron and Hermione were absolutely amazing.

Hermione, as always, was getting her information from books and using her supreme logic skills to effectively argue a point and get everyone else to agree. She was using some of her amazing speaking abilities to help her even more in her argument, i.e.:

"There are few laws in human existence that ever stay the same," she began, "they change with time and circumstances, they evolve with society and progress with civilization. But amongst the staidness of a mundane existence, there is a beautiful chaos within us. A life force driven by love and compassion, which few seek and less obtain. It is this love that allows a band of strangers, held together only by their shared humanity, to lay down their futures for other strangers."

I also loved how you characterized Ron. Ron was upset that he couldn’t find Harry and was leaning to his other friend, Hermione, for support, as he tends to do. He can be independent, but he also needs his friends. And then his story about the ‘Second Great Muggle War’ was amazing. It showed that he did have a love for history after all, but it showed something else. It showed his great love for fame, but his understanding that fame was not everything.

Absolutely amazing. I plan on reading some more of your fics soon!

"Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night" is probably one of my favorite poems. its so good to read a story that has an appreciation of good poetry, that was a good story to. We share alot of the same views.

It's great. I love your characterization and I like the ending also. This has already been mentioned, but I also really liked the fact that it's a war fic with an actual point/theme and not just spellwork and explosions like they usually are. The poem by Dylan Thomas just hit it right on. One of the parts I really liked was Dean's "Do you know how I know I'm brave?" speech. Dean in general was very good, this is possibly the only fic I've read in which Dean plays a major role..... Anywyas I'll stop blabbing now, but it was Great!

Since I havent read the rest of your stories (save for one or two from awhile back ago). I cant say for sure if I liked this one the best. I like how instead of writing about battles or romance or the other stuff, you instead wrote a fanfic about unity and fighting for the greater good. I liked the ending, but thought it was a bit short, but I still liked it. Eagerly I shall read more of your stories and with much enthusiasm ^___^

It's a great story, but I thought that Hermione's first speech was like a commander, rallying his troops for battle, which is probably what you were trying for, but it didn't seem natural. I also thought that Ron was a bit too smart. But I liked it all the same.

Blah. The only problem with most of your fics is I can't find a lot of things to critisize (sp?). But, not with this one. *ducks* Anyway, I loved the style of writing here and how you connected something to each person. However, I did think that some of the characters were OOC just a tad. I don't think that Hermione and Dean would speak so poeticly (and in Hermione's case, not just with the poem she recited) in a normal state. It seemed too...what's the word...scripted? Well, that was the only thing that I noticed...besides...maybe the paragraphs were in too big of blocks and it made it hard to read. Great job, Seren.

Seren, your writing continues to inspire me. I loved the history lesson and the way several people chimed in with Muggle stories. Hermione's use of the poem was also really well placed. and touching. Final Battle stories are usually all action and no substance, it's wonderful how you turn stereotypical storylines on their heads though. I very much enjoyed this.
