This is certainly a dark story. It sounds to me like Britain was an ugly, dystopian society being torn apart by two Dark Wizards, at the very least - Dumbledore and Voldemort, though Voldemort's followers (that includes the Snape of this story) would probably all be classed as Dark Wizards. Dumbledore's followers, too lazy to think for themselves, believed they were being led by the leader of the Light.
We all remember the youthful Dumbledore and Grindelwald's vision of the "greater good" before Arianna was killed. It was clearly explained in Rita's book in DH. What baffles me is that this "greater good" so frequently claimed as justification for his actions by a much older, post-Grindelwald Dumbledore, is never explained or clarified -is it still the same? - yet people continue to follow him. Well, in this story, we can see how well that worked for them.

Harry leaves and stays gone... I think I like it.
| Juliet chapter 1 . 8/1/2014
I love this story and regularly revisit it. I hope that you post more of your work one day.

Brit-pick: you have Hermione's parents referring to Hogwarts as a public school, which is something no British person would ever do.
For reasons that make no sense whatsoever to Americans, the British refer to schools like Hogwarts as public schools. Even though they are private.

This was a great story. Is there anymore to it or is it complete? What happened to Flitwik and Bones? They got out but what happened?
| Noble Korhedron chapter 1 . 4/18/2014
I pity the people who died, but as we all know this is a story and it didn't really happen. T.B.H, I think this sounds entirely plausible and matches canon Dumb-as-a-door pretty well!
| Nova chapter 1 . 3/20/2014
I so very much enjoyed this, FINALLY a fic that doesn't drag harry back to england. Great read, would love to know more, but I understand, one shot

I wouldn't want to be Dumbledore or Snape when they have to answer for their crimes in the afterlife. Those 200,000 lives lost could almost certainly be laid at their feet.

I really liked reading this story. There so many parts that I thought were well done. Honestly, I could imagine Snape killing Sirius in front of Hermione and Harry and that setting Hermione off.
I'm glad that Hermione and Harry got away when they did, it's obvious that a canon dumbledore is always going to be a MOB, but this dumbles was ruthless. Of course Ron will always be a jealous prat and I'm sure Ginny would most likely be out of control, with that harridan of a mother of theirs.
Most of your story flowed pretty well together, and it was a semi-realistic depiction of what could have happened. I think that makes your story all the more enjoyable in my books.

LOVE Hermione silencio-ing that harpy Molly Weasley.
And LOVE her rant at Dumbles.
Yay! for Dobby obeying her and taking Harry away.
Hermione should have kicked Snape in the bollocks instead of the face, though.
Yay! for locking those gits up in the infirmary, Hermione.
That tattoo on Winky the house elf scared me a bit: it reminded me of the tattoos on Holocaust survivors.
The mental pic of Winky glaring at Dobby and chewing him out was very cute and funny.
Hermione's parents sound wonderful, and so quick on the uptake, too.
LOVE the grin on Hermione and Dobby's faces.
AW! at everything Dobby said in answer to Hermione's "Mistress" question.
The idea of a house elf swooning was very amusing.
"unsealing of your parent's will" - "unsealing of your parents' will".
Snape WISHES (regarding Hermione's punishment) as does Dumbles (regarding his planned cover up of Sirius Black's death).
Get out of there? Like I said previously, the both of you WISH!
Harry and Hermione's safety? A likely story!
YOU WISH, Dumbles, about the Potter money for your war.
LOVE the contents of Rita Skeeter's articles for The Prophet.
Yay! for the ICW firing Dumbles,
Yay! for Gred and Forge's intentions.
"my parent's Secret-Keeper" - "my parents' Secret-Keeper".
Yay! for prof. Flitwick.
And yay! for Amelia Bones, for at least not lying to Harry like all of the others who intruded on their island did.
