Chapter: Rising From Amongst the Fallen

From Lupin's point of view, I suppose? Good, though, either way.

Author's Response: Yes, of course. Isn't it obvious? *scratches head* Glad then; thanks!

Chapter: Rising From Amongst the Fallen

This view on the outcome of the battle is really interesting. The description of Voldemort's dead body was slightly chilling and gave the entire story a nice spooky intro to get the reader into the mood.

The thought that Harry would feel guilty for being born and then causing the battle had never occured to me. I had always assumed that Harry would feel proud that he had finally defeated the Dark Lord, though the sorrow of the losses would also be overwhelming. I enjoyed the scene.

The only thing I would question is how Harry is able to go from being so hopeless and in a way selfishly depressed, to so strong in a matter of seconds, especially since he lost many people he more than likely considered to be family. How might he have reacted had Ginny also died in battle?


Author's Response:
Well, when I think about it, there are going to be a lot of deaths; it's necessary for the dramatic ending that the story has to have (canon or otherwise.) And Voldemort's dead body, nothing more than the empty shell of a being that caused so much pain is going to be chilling.

Harry feeling guilty. Where do you think he gets his 'saving people thing' from? It has to be realized that an awful lot of lives-heck, an awful lot of history- happened because of his birth and the prophecy. He's trying, however consciously or otherwise, to make up for that. And I think that, however proud he might actually be once he's finally done it, that the losses would overwhelm him, once it was all done. And I also think that he would feel very, very lost; his entire life, more or less, has been about his killing Voldemort or vice versa. Once you take that away, what is he? It makes for quite the complex....

Love does amazing things, don't you think? And if Ginny had died...I can't be sure. I obviously don't think she did, or that she will...

Thanks for the read and the wonderful review!

I like what you've done in this fic. No matter how long Harry fights Voldemort, he will always have survivors' guilt, always feel that it was all his fault, and it's realistic that you have him breaking down at the end because it is the first time he's allowed himself to think about it in a long time. You do a good job portraying Harry's thoughts well, even though we're only observing them from the outside, and a good job at showing the true loss that accompanies war.

Author's Response: Thank you. I think it's an unexplored inevitability: what would Harry do once it was all over? I'm glad you enjoyed it!
