From your note I take it its Harry who dies. But who is the old women?
God work on the poem. It was sad but in a nice kind of way.=Sammy
P.S. I know I'm weird.
Who was the old woman? At first methoughts it was old Ginny *shiver* but then I remembered DH was disregarded...
Well, excellent poem! 10/10~
Author's Response: It was old Ginny. DH disregarded or no, I am an adamant H/G shipper. I was astoundingly unclear about her in the poem, though, for which I apologise. I prob'ly ought to go and fix that...
Thanks for the review!
IT'S SO SAD! I hate Harry, but I can feel your passion for him in this poem. Well done!
Author's Response: I'll have to disagree with you about Harry, but thank you so much for reviewing!
That's so sad. Are you talking about Dumbledore being gone, or Harry, or some other person that I don't know. It was really good!!
Author's Response: The poem could refer to anyone in the books who's a hero with dark hair, but I meant it as Harry.
Thanks for reviewing! ~Sam
Okay, so I didn't realize it was Harry until I reread the author's note, but now I see it. I also had forgotten that it was pre-DH, so I was trying to match it to deaths in DH to no avail.
But now I get it, and it's very touching. Dead!Harry is surrounded by all these people mourning him, but none of them really know him. Then, his "family" comes, and that's all right and dandy, but then he wories that they're just going to completey forget him. And then some random old lady comes.
I really liked it; it conveyed the emotions very well, but I didn't quite get the end. Who is she? Is she just a random old lady that remembers him better than the others?
Author's Response: The old lady is Ginny. That particular stanza is about fifty years after the first two. I was pretty vague about it, putting in only the 'ashes to a flame' thing as a clue. My bad. :)
Thank you for the review! ~Sam
