I like this version better! I also thought the actual one was a little boring. Thanks for writing!

Aww that would've been epic! But... all the little kiddies and the adults would of had nightmares cause of all the "scary bits" but hey i would pay to see this... Oh man i loved the whole bloody thing! Shame it was only a oneshot oh well

This was the battle I pictured. Gory and tension filled and like an actual war. I never did understand the Order members who believed in Stunning everyone, and I'm glad somebody else realized the holes in the plan.

nice, very nice, i've read a lot of the stories that depict what the final battle should have been, and this one by far takes the cake. good job

I didn't dislike the battle in the book but I didn't like it either. It was very...safe.
I loved, in a twisted sort of way, reading your take on the battle and, though it would have been much better than how it turned out in the book (even if only for the fact that Snape didn't die) it was much darker than the book, though this was very well written.
Thank you. It was good to read a different take on a way that it should have been, especially after Harry had found out about the prophecy.

you should write a sequel to it you know like what happens after all this is done
| atymer chapter 1 . 10/28/2011
You know this actually turned out very exciting and with possibilities for further chapters. hint hint
Suppose, as horrific as it seems, Harry didn't die. Suppose his magic, at war with the vampire, werewolf and other curses cast on him that day, struck a balance.
Harry would be scarred, but not physically changed otherwise until he had to tap into that part of his new physicality. A walking curse, where he would only have to think it and his enemy would go poof! More explosively of course. Tap into the abilities of his adverserys as the need arose.
How would he live? Would he have enough control to deal day to day with the wizarding world? Make a home for Teddy and Mione and Luna? Would Mione's guilt over leaving battle allow that? And where was Ron, run off like during the horcrux hunt? Dumpydoor? What would life be like after his victory for the wizarding world?
Of course this was a one shot and nothing may come of the idea, but I am so curious.

Nice. This is more of what I expected when I read the 7th book. I know that Harry Potter is supposed to be geared towards younger children but the real "battle" was not a battle at all.

In general, I find this more 'realistic' than JKRs version (not that magical battles have too much realism anyhow).
From the writing point of view, I'd have preferred if you brought out in the first paragraph that his uncanny magic was allowing him to walk on a broken leg, grip with a broken arm, and so on. When reading fantasy there is always the problem of interpreting how literal the author is being, if the author says 'he had a pumpkin head' is it round and the skin somewhat orange? or does he have a vegetable for a head? Similarly, if you describe something impossible it is hard to tell if it has a good internal explanation (he's doing magic), the character is delirious or something, or the author just made a mistake. (end lecture on writing fantasy)
For myself, I agree that the final battle in DH lacked a lot, probably because JKR couldn't envision it and therefore plotted it out as hand-wavy 'bunches of people fought undescribed, then we see this duel, some other people fought, a wall falls, and so on'. One thing seriously lacking is an understanding of the role of leadership in war - the group milling around fighting individually *will* be mowed over by the group fighting in a coherent manner, covering each other, pulling the wounded out, handling rest and supplies, and many other things you will find if you read historical descriptions of war and battle. The notion that a battle is thirteen hours of mad chaos is both a superficially true description and profoundly wrong. It is just as true to say that a football game (either kind) is a clash of 2 groups of people chasing a ball back and forth down a field.
