| Teufel1987 chapter 16 . 3/10
If I recall correctly, Dumbledore told Harry in canon that the blood protection given to him by Lily acted as a sort of Horcrux in that as long as Voldemort was alive, Harry wouldn't die.
Meaning that Harry could theoretically take a hundred killing curses and still live as long as Voldemort was still alive (although Voldemort's soul fragment wouldn't survive the first curse).
So I fail to see why Dumbledore would want Voldemort to only cast that Killing Curse at Harry.
After all, it would have been so much easier to simply cast an Imperius curse at a Death Eater in the battle happening in this chapter and have that person send a Killing Curse Harry's way...
Harry would definitely live.
In canon, it made sense to tell Snape that Voldemort must be the one to kill Harry because Voldemort was obsessed with the idea of personally killing Harry. Additionally (and more importantly) Dumbledore knew that he wouldn't be around to actively influence things...

This story totally deserve its sliw ipdating. It's so good you need time to imagine and write it so perfectly.
I have one question : how did the death eaters manage to kill the Dursleys ? Weren't they supposed to be protected by Harry's blood ?

WHOA! I had almost forgotten about this fic! Absolutely delighted to see an update, and what an update it has been.
Thank you for a most comprehensive chapter with multiple scenes that propelled the story forward and not ending on a cliffhanger.
Looking forward to Dumbledore schooling his ex-students some more. Also, given how power Dumbledore and Grindelwald are, who apart from Voldemort could truly challenge them in a fight?

I was about to write to you to ask about your health...
I hope you are well
I was a great chapter, dark, tortuous for both our favorite old wizards.
I hope everything will turn as planned until the very end.
Do you plan to write another sequel to your Downward Spiral Saga ? Perhaps with Voldemort's fall ? I wonder what it would take for this to happen.

It made my day when I saw this chapter dropped :) From the start, you've done such an amazing job portraying the perspectives of these complex characters, and your handling of the utilitarian ethical dilemma Dumbledore embodies here is really well done. Every minute reading this is well spent!

Awesome story and writing style. Pity you update so sporadically, had to re-read the whole fic before reading the latest chapter to recollect the plot. Enjoyed it immensely nevertheless.
Looking forward to future updates

Fantastic! Glad to see you're still working on this story.

I don't know whether anyone has told you or not, but you did an excellent job by choosing Dumbledor as the protagonist of this story. Very few authors do that.
