So good.

I loved this story and your parable about the dementors was awesome. Did you come up with that or is it in the books somewhere? Great job with this story. Your dialogue skills are sweet.

Love this. Brilliantly done.
The Dark One Rising chapter 1 . 1/6/2015
I didn't even remember the passage that inspired this. I suppose it does beg the question though. There must be other methods to counter a dementor when not many master the Patronus Charm.

This is really good. I loved the way you came up with four ways to fight dementors that are appropriate for each of the four founders. You've also given the only rational explanation I've seen for why one would conjure positive memories to fight dementors when that's what they feed on. Since the Patronus doesn't feel despair-or anything else, I assume-dementors can't feed on its feelings.

BTW, I thought Minerva is the cat animagus. So why is Severus glaring, hissing, and spitting? ; )

I don't understand the tale, but the Dementor theory seems solid. Thank you for writing!

It was the muggle, wasn't it?
I don't understand the "Four wizards entered Azkaban. One died, one lost his soul to the Dementors, one snapped his wand in half and went to live as a Muggle. Only one entered in peace and left in peace."

Great stuff. The trouble with things is that Harry was forced to learn one way to defend against Dementors when he was 13. Rather than explain all four methods, Remus realised the one that was easiest/ best suited for Harry and taught him it.

May I keep this for reference? I've always wondered what Jo meant in HBP, as we're only ever shown one method. This is the best explanation I've found.

Brilliant. Again. I'm saving these when I need a House perspective.

Thank you.

Aria, this is the only place I can answer your question, so I hope you, and anyone else who might be interested will read this.

The Talmudic story I am referring to is 'Four entered the Pardes' ('arba'a nichnesu lapardes'), in which four rabbis entered the Pardes (Orchard, Paradise). One died, one lost his mind, one became a heretic and 'only one entered in peace and left in peace'.
