Alternative death scene for Dumbledore – for Chapter 3
All necessary information is posted in the prologue chapter. Information is updated as need be.
He arrived in the hall just as Voldemort was starting to send the first wizards to start the raid. Nodding to the two teams that had become his constant guard, he touched one of their portkeys and appeared further back on the battlegrounds. Well, it was more of a slaughtering ground than a battleground.
The wizards and witches that were brave enough, or rather, stupid enough, gathered in Diagon Alley for a speech Dumbledore and Fudge were giving to boost the hope of the people. Voldemort appeared in the middle of it, causing chaos as he engaged Dumbledore in battle. Fudge was off to the side, frozen in the fear of attracting attention. His guards of hit wizards and aurors were off trying to fight back, but were losing quickly.
Harry's group moved out silently, backwards into alleyway, levitating each other up to the roof. The leader whose name he learned to be Augustus Malone, is the father of Roger Malone, a former Slytherin in the year above his own. Augustus was very careful to make sure he wasn't hit by anything during the raids, and had kept him safe from some very dangerous curses. The last Potter nodded his head once and started to set up, only to dive away from his sniper gun as a curse hit the ground next to him.
"Above!" He called out, grabbing his pistols and aiming for a blacker dot in the sky. The guns had silencers on them thankfully, or he would have been worried about the sound attracting more enemies. Three Aurors had spotted the small group, and quickly attacked. Calmly pulling the trigger, he hit one of the fast moving foes. With a pained cry, the man fell from his broom down seven stories and hit the ground with a wet splat. Spells began to fly as Harry aimed and took out the second man. A cutting curse glanced his arm, ripping open a cut. He winced and aimed, firing one last time to take out the final man while the wizards around him kept the enemy busy.
"You're hurt." Augustus observed, as his men started to put up notice-me-not charms around them.
"Yeah." Harry grunted, gripping his elbow tightly and pinching the veins to slow the blood flow. Luckily the cut hadn't severed his tendons and he could still use his hand. Moving to grab his wand, he paused as the leader spoke.
"Let me." He murmured, pulling out his wand and starting to knit the muscle and flesh back together, frowning as the skin resisted healing. "Newer spell, probably has some Dark Magic instilled into it…the cut doesn't want to heal." He observed, sweat glittering his forehead as he finished mending the laceration.
"We'll have to tell Tom when we get back." Harry murmured, flexing his wrist and nodding. Another man handed his sniper rifle back to him, holding it the way he had taught the group.
Setting up his rifle again, he took aim at the old man, weaving his sights with his movement, watching for a pattern. Dumbledore was currently fighting the Dark Lord, so he found one quick enough. Predicting where the man would move next, he pulled the trigger, watching as the old codger lined up perfectly and fell to the ground. He aimed once more and fired again, making sure he was dead. "Got him." He murmured, looking through the scope at Fudge who was screaming like a little girl. He knew this because he could hear the idiot above the noise of the fighting. Brain matter and blood covered the simpleton making an unholy grin light Harry's features up. Sniggering he would have to remember to show Voldemort at some point or another. Green light flashed and Fudge fell to the ground, dead, making Harry laugh harder this time.
"Hmmm… He died screaming like the pansy he is." He said finally, gaining control of his laughter, but not his expression. The grin was making several of his protectors watch him warily, which provided even more entertainment for his high.
Yep, so the brain splatters were calling my name and I had to write the plunny! –cowers– Don't hate me! Anyways, I've been working on the sequel a bit, but really I've been busy with work and school so I haven't truly been writing a lot. Hopefully that will change soon, but I can't make any promises. If you like this series you should check out some of my new fics, Lost and Found (child!Harry and Left4Dead), Heartbreak and Life (a Gundam Wing ficlet), Caramelldansen (a Prankster!Harry one-shot), etc. I may have another fic in the stages of being put up, but I'm not sure.
Anyways, hope you enjoyed! Leave comments to feed my muse please! She's starved for food…
