Chapter: The Escape

Interesting idea to get this from Dean's POV. Everyone's so focused on the main characters all the time we forget there are others involved, too. I think a lot probably happened at Shell Cottage that is yet to be explored. And, yes, I sobbed over Dobby's death and Harry's grief. Darn house elf! Thanks for the nice one-shot.

Chapter: The Escape

Hello. I stumbled across this story, and thought it looked interesting so I gave it a try.

Let me start off by saying that I think one of the saddest things that happened in the whole Harry Potter series was the death of Dobby. It made me cry. I don't cry.

Anyhow, as the main point of this story may seem to be Dean's visit to Shell Cottage, it seems to me as a subtle reflection on Dobby. Wishful thinking? (I'm working right now on writing a tribute to Dobby.) Maybe I am thinking that this is the main-ish point because of the last line. To some it may not feel like closure, but to me it does.

I liked it. It also shows that good stories don't have to be real long. Good work!


Author's Response: Thank you for your comments. I can honestly say I cried through most of DH. This was just one of those quick spurts of writing from someone else's POV other than Harry's. A tribute to Dobby, hmmm, I would love to read that. Thanks again, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Terri
