First off, sorry this took more than a day or so to post, but I suppose all of you were busy reading HBP, as was I, but I was also out of town.
The title of this story, as some of you may be thinking, is rather curious. It has no apparent explanation in this installment, so I shall explain it to you. Arthur Miller, writer of The Crucible and Death of a Salesman, as well as others, wrote an article concerning The Crucible. This article was called Tragedy of the Common Man, I had it from an English class, but I lost it, so I will try to give you a synopsis as best as I can from memory. This said article describes heroes as not being extinct, just because we think of great mythological tragic characters as heroes. No, heroes can be everyday, typical people, but they must possesses the Tragic Flaw. What is the tragic flaw? Miller defines it as being the point in a heroes life when he will lay down everything, even his life to stand up for what he believes is right. It can be over something as small as standing up for one's name or property, or as Lily and James did, for their son. I believe they couldn't have fully develop this flaw until they were together, until they had love, and of course, they wouldn't have had Harry.
I hope this explained it for you, if you still have questions, put it in the review or IM me on aim, clumsylw6.
As for doing a sequel.
I just don't know, I'll try to write a few chapters and see if I like the feel. So just check for jumpernumbernine every once in a while, and we'll see.
Oh and did anyone catch it?
My mistake? Last chapter? Class of 79? Oh no, I thought about it after I posted. They graduated in 1978.
