What a horribly sad chapter! Good reading, but...wow, sad. I feel sorry for everyone.

I was so excited this morning to see your update! :-)
Lovely chapter. I can really feel Harry's frustration and pain. In a way, I'm glad he's trying to move on now.
I love your characterization of Snape. He seems very true to life. He is so angry at and (perhaps?) so frightened of the truth. He's shoving away everyone who cares about him.
I personally adore angst and heartache in large doses. I guess it's just a matter of preference.
BTW, if you ever want a beta-reader, just let me know. I have a pretty good understanding of grammar and way too much free time on my hands. No pressure, though. :-)

Tears are springing in my eyes now. Albus is so sad, I can feel the sadness coming from everyone. Severus is just acting so..so weird.

Words can't express how much I enjoyed this chapter. I absolutely adore your Dumbledore here, so human, so much a normal, flesh and blood man. Of course, I hate Severus (or what he's become) and what he says to him, but this is an excellent examination of the topic of AD/GG.
I actually explore the same topic (this scene is eerily similar to one of mine) in my WIP. How Dumbledore knows suffering, knows what it's like to live without love and to have to make horrible choices. He's been making them since before Harry and Severus were ever born.
This chapter was amazing and really showed the humanity of the characters.
Onto Harry: I love that you actually have Harry hate Severus here and admit defeat. 'Love conquers all' is all so very romantic but honestly how long could any of stand Severus' behavior, even if it wasn't really his fault?
Harry is remarkable human in this and I adore it.
Really, I just continue to love this story more and more. I will be rec'ing it to SS as soon as the worst angst is over. I know quite a few people have their fingers over their eyes asking me 'is it over yet?' before they start to read.
Irritating, I know, but oh well. I assure you I will be hanging on your every word.

The ending of this chapter has brought me to tears, but I cannot say I don't like it (how twisted it sounds?). It is great but in this heartbreaking kind of way. You know what I mean - you feel uncontrollable sadness, you are choking up with emotions and for the life of you, you cannot tear your eyes away from what you're reading, even if that only makes you cry harder! But I won't complain, the more tears and difficulties, the sweeter the ending, right? ;)
I will say this again, it was a great and well-written chapter! Keep up the awesome work and update as soon as you can!

I suppose that waiting for a miracle is out of questions?
Have someone push the git (because for last few chapters he is a git) down the stairs, maybe if he hits his head really hard he would start acting normally, or just finish off Voldemort.
Angst and heartache is good in small doses but I think that readers would appreciate more a tiny creak in the armor which will prove to them that not everything is lost. Perhaps Severus's point of view would help (especially if he is confused as hell). One returning memory or at least a slap across the face or Harry's suicidal attempt when Severus is around.
Update soon, pretty please and give us some hope.

well...that was totally terrible of severus as a matter of fact. i really hope hes only saying these things cause hes sick still and messed up. that would be really fucked up if he really meant any of that.
great chapter! wish you updated more though... :)

Oh Dumbledore! I feel so sad.
| WynterRavenheart chapter 19 . 6/20/2009
So, when is Sev going to stop being such an arse?
| find.me.please chapter 19 . 6/20/2009
Poor Dumbledore...first Harry, and now him. I'm anxious about Harry's last meeting with Snape, can't wait for the next chapter! Excellent, as usual.
| Blaqheartedstar chapter 19 . 6/20/2009
OMG! This was just WOW! Angst with Dumbledore, totally new for me. Loved it. Snape is a loose cannon and its just amazing how well your working these chapters and how well you detail his deteriorating relationships. If Snape decided to end it with Dumbledore like this I can't wait to see how Harry's last one to one is gonna play out.
| WickedLust chapter 19 . 6/20/2009
couldnt get better unless you actually had dumbledore blow him up
| Radcliffe23 chapter 19 . 6/20/2009
Ah! Such a great story. And even though the chapter was kinda short for you, I loved it all the same. Please keep them coming!
