I love clicking on something so good as the Story of the Moment! The opening paragraphs were FANTASTIC! What a great introduction, very well written. The repetition in particular makes it very effective.
You painted a very bleak picture of the final battle. I was surprised to see Ron kill Draco Malfoy with his bare hands! Yikes! I really felt for Hermione, though. And of course for Harry. Maybe it's because we've now seen how it ends, but I could never see Harry committing suicide; you wrote it well, though, and made it very believable and sad.
What I found most interesting was that even though he took his life, he still got to see his friends and loved ones in the afterlife. That was a beautiful scene, and a lovely reunion with Ginny. Wonderful job! ~Gina :)
