Wow. Depressed much?

After you've killed the last giant, you find something else. Fishing, Farming, Mountain climbing, Babysitting. Not because it needs to be done, but just to try something new. It doesn't have to have meaning, it doesn't need to be significant. Life isn't about meaning.

Put another way, the meaning of life isn't "meaning", the meaning of life is "life".

Whatever shit is going down in your life, there is always something else to do, some OTHER shit to go down. Hopefully you enjoy it. If not, perhaps you can learn to like it. You certainly learned to like your previous shit.

Everything has its time, and everything dies. So then you find something new. It also has its time and it too will die. Who the fuck said things have permanence. Nothing has permanence. Jobs, relationships, people, nations, planets, galaxies. The Milky Way is on a collision course with a neighboring galaxy. So what?

The most damaging IDEA that man has concocted is "permanence". The second most damaging is "meaning".

Beautifully written, and so devestating; its something that could have easily happened to our hero, and its refreshing to have someone tackle mental health issues like you do - even if they do end in tragedy.

One tiny mistake though:

"It was July now, and the winter air was warm."

Where I live (Australia) it is winter during June, July and August, but its a northern hemisphere summer.

A writer who'd written every word? Bullshit. In the words of a friend of mine:

"Stories never end. They just stop being written down. When hands are tired, when a plausible stopping point arrives, the author puts the pen down and never picks it back up again. Never finishes. Because to write the whole story, you'd have to be immortal. There's always, always one more page left."

This isn't even depression, it's apathy, and I sympathize, but there is no ending except the one you decide on. Life changes, and some of the time it sucks, but there is no going backward. Move forward, walk on, and you'll realize that there is no ending except the one you choose.
Red Phoenix Dragon chapter 1 . 1/16/2011
Harry grew up without love. He did not see nor understood the love of his soul mate Hermione. She and Luna understood who Harry was and could be with their love and support. Ginny did not know Harry she was in love with the boy-who-lived and was from a past that Harry never understood and Ginny could never have a future with just Harry. Harry was empty because this future was Molly's big happy Weasley family where Molly was the only happy one. Harry and Ginny and Ronald and Hermione could never have a happy future where all of their dreams came true thanks to Molly's love potions. But hey as master of death Harry could fix that by getting Hermione and together going back to the past and fixing all of the mistakes of Dumbledore, Molly and everyone else who stands in their way.

Thanks for sharing your story. Please write the next chapter.

Well that was depressing...but in the well written sort of way :) for some reason I thought Harry was going to jump and end his life. What I really liked about this story though was that it brought up the question of what now? Harry really didn't have anything left to do after the Final Battle. What could have motivated him other than happiness and love? I don't know anymore. Lost my train of thought. Well, great job!

i really liked it. the detachment, the feeling of just becoming obsolete, the implied suicide - it all works very well with harry's story, and i like how you set it atop the astronomy tower too. almost like an ironic parallel to dumbledore, who created the saviour of the light, outgrew his purpose, and chose to die. thanks :).
