Summary: Centuries pass; memories fade. No one remembers the sacrifices made to win the war. Only the portraits on the Headmasterís wall, and one portrait in particular, is able to tell the story.
You are a very good writer. I like the way you gradually reveal Ginny's identity and her charging into battle driven by fear and love.
Author's Response: Thanks, Don. I hope you like the next chapter as well; its tone is very different.
