The Good Master

For most of his childhood, Harry had experienced cruelty at the hands of his relatives. He was treated as a servant, or more appropriately, a slave. His uncle, or more appropriately, his master, found great joy in his pain and suffering and cared not for his health nor his happiness.

Lord Voldemort, who considered no one his friend, looked at his Death Eaters as no better than a means to an end. He saw them as mere tools and would not even blink if one of his own followers was killed. If angered, he was not against torturing or killing them himself.

The relationship between some masters and their house elves also appeared not to be a nice one. The best example would be Lucius and Dobby. Lucius had no qualms about ordering Dobby to punish himself and terrorizing his house elf.

These examples caused Harry to question the morality of power and authority themselves. However, as with all things, power and authority can be either bad or good depending on the hands that wield them. Dumbledore himself said that “It is a curious thing, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it."

Harry never sought power, but when he was handed it anyway, his decisions on what to do with it, as well as his care and kindness, earned him the title "The Good Master." What did it mean to be a good master? In the end, who would one choose to serve?

The Good Master reviews
Harry suffered throughout his entire childhood, not only neglect at the hands of his relatives but also the worst types of suffering possible. However, despite his pain, he refused the ultimate offer from Voldemort – the offer of power, revenge, and hatred. What implications could this have for the Wizarding World, in which hatred abounds? Abused Harry.

Water Lily reviews
"I'll win this war for you, my Queen." "I'm yours. Even in death." There were many ways in which Harry expressed his love for Hermione over the years. He loved her with all his heart, mind, and soul, more than his happiness, more than even his life. And knowing that, we wonder why Hermione's so loyal to him.
