Summary: And so this is what Hermione Jane Granger does; when all is said and done, and the Ministry leaves their dead in a cold, pale marble room, Hermione sits with them. Hermione Granger has a reason for staying locked in a room with the dead.
A beautiful poignant story. I apply the reference to Hermione leaving her hair loose to that of 'sack cloth & ashes' - the pain & anguish of sorrow leaving no time for beautification of the bereaved. Moving, touching, heart rending. Thank you.
All is not well.
