Summary: Oh, I'll tell you a tale of a sainted wizard, of his friends and their adventures in store. And I'll tell you a tale of an evil wizard, of the decimated world torn apart by his war.
But be warned, I say, think not far ahead. For where you might see gain, loss may be instead.
Heavily run the theories and conclusions dreamt out of whims, but know that what you hope lies most likely not within.
She's written the words, and told the lot of trials, tribulations, and soul-eating rot.
But I won't tell you how, and I won't tell you when. Just know your illustrious Bartender has done it yet again
What lies Beyond the Prophecy and Harry Potter's life- who knows? Only the exalted one, Merlin, and the one who writes.
That was AWESOME!!! The innovation, the humour, the way everything fits snugly into the logically compliant plot, the redemption (and slight archetypal twist) of the Drawling Wonder, and the delicious Philosophy of Mortality... what can I say (other than what I've just typed, that is)? You're a brilliant writer, and no mistake.

This was great! It's the first epistolary humour fic I've read in... er, eternity.
Also, I don't mean to sound heretic here, but was that partly inspired by Stroud? The "boiling your head" part and one or two of Percy's urbane replies?
Yours in readership,
Author's Response: Um, I don't know what you mean by Stroud unless you mean the place in the UK, so no, it wasn't inspired by him/her or it. :). 'Boiling your head' is a phrase I think I picked up from Enid Blyton a few years ago, or something like that. Thank you very much for the review and I'm glad you liked the story. ~Carole~
